I like to eat, eat, eat, apples and bananas….

I’m pretty sure fruit cereal is climbing the charts on its way to my favorite breakfast. Just an apple and a banana this morning – with cinnamon and vanilla soy milk. Coffee in the background.

At school, I was (again) surprised by our monthly staff luncheon. Today’s menu…soup and salad!

Look at all those crock pots…

I’m sorry to admit that I was being extremely picky (very unlike me)…and I didn’t know what was in any of the soups, so I only didn’t really eat much (well, for my usually bottomless pit of an appetite).

Two salads: a broccoli slaw and a yummy spinach and berry mix. I had a bite of this soup, and realized it was incredibly cheesy (and would probably not sit well with my tum tum) and I (again, I hate admitting this) threw it out. (I also threw the crackers away – eek! – but then every time I walked into the office after lunch, I grabbed a few crackers. I probably had 15 throughout the afternoon– no joke.)

After wasting my first bowl (so sad), I tried another kind…

Chicken and dumpling…yum.

This one was a winner. I was full afterwards, so I took a small dessert square back to my room and ate it as a snack later on in the day.

I don’t know what this was…maybe a blondie? Whatever it was…it was g-o-o-d. No wasting here.

I kind of ruined my appetite with the cracker snacking, so I made a light dinner.

Sautéed Brussels sprouts, chickpeas and cashews. I poured a little apple cider vinegar on the sprouts while they were cooking and it made them so sweet and almost citrus-y. Love.

Speaking of citrus, here was my dessert…

Cuties! I actually went back for a 4th later on in the evening.

Tomorrow is Friday, the temperature is not below zero anymore, and I’m going to bed! At 8:45…it’s just one of those nights.

Pin It!
