I’ve always fancied myself as having a touch of highly refined sleuth blood in me, and since my last “project” – in assisting a relative on a secretive birthday surprise for a challenging human – was a good few months back, I thought it a good idea to take a cue from this smartie and uncover the secrecies behind
my the subject’s eats on Sunday. Huge thanks to our veggie-licious Jenn for hosting the classiest party on Earth.
Fact: The process of developing this seemingly innocent concoction is more complicated than meets the eye. We’ve got stovetop cooked oats with a mashed banana stirred in. Once cooled, a few spoonfuls of yogurt and some berry jam swirled through before transferring the delicate cargo into the peanut butter jar. Take note: the subject prepared the jar for this very purpose by using the contents in a manner that ensured the sides of the jar to not be left bare.
Evidence to validate level of complication involved: subject was near fainting with hunger when she finally sat down to eat therefore – accidently on purpose, carelessly disregarding to photograph the coffee.
Fact: There is a higher level of satisfaction derived from nut butter straight from the jar.
Evidence: If circumstances allow, the subject would prefer to never have it otherwise when it comes to snacking. A penchant for removing the stem from the apple prior to taking the first bite was noted.
Ensues the mind-boggling factor of the missing snack of an orange and some cashews. After interrogation, subject stated a valid reason; she was standing at the table -starving- awaiting takeout the parents were bringing and lunch-time was fast passing by.
Grilled garlic butter hake, veggies.Fact: The meal did not live up to it’s expectations.
Evidence: It was partly consumed, before the hungry subject abandoned ship and and turned to chocolate…
Fact: It was a shock to conclude that there was no sense of sadness at finishing off the last of the beloved bar.
Evidence to why there was no mourning: Another bar on stand-by in storage.
Fact: This snack was inspired by another blogger. And hit.the.spot on that particular day.
Evidence: There is an influx of this combination at daily moves and grooves. It made the subject’s tummy sing and allowed her to take a walk without feeling as though she might dissolve.
Fact: That was intended to be a fried egg.
Evidence proving otherwise: Clearly the subject had over-estimated her frying capabilities. After a small panic attack upon attempting to flip the egg, subject resorted to a slightly scrambled fried egg. Necessary to add – next time I will not use a -miniature- pot(!) to “fry” an egg.
Fact: The subject swooned over the first collision of butter and honey on her tastebuds.
Evidence: Despite being half-asleep, a definite sensory nerve was triggered, prompting the eatee to “mmmh” out loud.
VERDICT: Pleased to reveal that the subject was content in following her hunger cues and cravings 😉 .
Oh and perchance you are interested to know the outcome of the “birthday” case; I kinda blew everything out of proportion. Yeah, I’ll stick to sleuthing food :D.
Tell me a combination that you were sold on from the first meeting!
