This is a blog for people to discuss what they are eating. There is a theory that by journaling eating habits, people will eat healthier. I am trying to cook more at home and feed my family a wider variety of foods. People can just read or join as co-authors. Topics don't have to be recipes with nice photos. You can write about eating habits, special diets, culinary cultural differences, etc.

FOOD DIARY -- International school food booth

This is just a section for people who write down what they are eating. Ramblings are very welcomed.

Yesterday was a ridiculously satisfying day because we went to Reina's friend school bazaar. International schools have amazing food booths because of the variety of ethnicities attending.
In my hometown of Vancouver, they now have these Nibbles and Bites fairs where various restaurants sell sample dishes. Food booths are like that except the food is made by parents. It will cost as much or even more (depending on your level of self-control) but the money goes towards buying playground equipment for kids and stuff. Donating money never tasted better!

What I had: 1 stick of Filipino barbequed pork, 1 bowl Korean barbeque beef bowl with kimchi, Filipino sticky rice with brown rice dessert, 2 vegetable samosas.

Hiroshi had the Italian plate combo: lasagna, ratatouillle with Italian sausage, foccacia with onion and tuna and a fig tart. He went back for a second place (substituted the retatouille for an extra slice of foccacia) and a paper cup of white wine.

And the kids, what can I say about them. Reina had some fried yakisoba noodles and popcorn. Rio had an All-American hot dog, cotton candy, Rice Krispy squares and some Filipino rice steamed pudding. (Kid's got a sweet tooth.) See how we all naturally gravitate towards different foods which makes cooking a meal for the family so tricky....

I can't remember what I had yesterday, besides the dinner I posted at my blog. I know I ate something though.

Today I had a weird food day. Ate a little baba ghannouj on whole wheat bread for a super quick breakfast. Then for lunch I had a Wendy's Grilled Chicken Go Wrap. I'm pretty hungry, but since it's close to dinner time, I'm trying to be good and wait.

Oh, dinner with be more baba ghannouj, this time on whole wheat pita bread. Will also have some leftover lentil soup and a big salad. I may make more of the oatmeal raisin cookies that are on my blog.

Today was Don's homemade pizza (I don't make it.. I can't kneed the dough to save my life and I have to measure... so I leave the baking to him :) I adore it better than any pizza we order around here. It's not "mafia" pizza (then again.. we don't have a brick oven that goes to 900°F)...

Earlier in the day I finished the last of my leftovers from the chicken I made a few nights ago. I hate leaving food go to waste, especially that.. so that was a good "brunch"..

I had Rudy's barbecue turkey sandwich and creamed corn for lunch and it was delicious. The rest of the day was hit and miss.

If I had been with you I would have had to hang out with Hiroshi and Rio. I love Italian and hot dog and cotton candy sound like a perfect finishing touch. Don't suppose Rio put relish and onions on that hot dog?

Hubby is into relish in hot dogs. I only put ketchup and mustard (yes hubby thinks I'm gross LOL).. I'd ocasionally put onions if it's a big buffet type meal but won't go out of my way to put them there.
