My morning was rushed because I was creating breakfast and dinner at the same time – I hardly ever crave things for breakfast, but this morning, my tummy was begging for oatmeal.

½ cup oats (cooked in water), 1 cumbled oatie, pumpkin flax granola, almond butter, 2-3 tbs. vanilla soy milk

So dang good. Exactly what my belly wanted.

Mid morning, I was surprised with a latte from a wonderful mom

It was a good day for a latte. Every day is a good day for a latte, really. Especially when it’s free – thanks Tona!

When lunchtime rolled around, I was ready for my big fat salad.

Look at that vibrant color! I love all things red – it’s such a warm color.

  • Broccoli slaw
  • Red bell pepper
  • Carrots
  • Salsa
  • Tiny little chicken tender way in the blurry background

Then around 4:30pm – I had the most fantastic snack while grading. I started with coconut yogurt…

Then added granola and walnut butter this was delicious. That walnut butter is the best thing around.

Dinner might look familiar…

This is exactly what my lunch was – but with the subtraction of chicken, and the addition of ground turkey. Cooked in the crock pot all the live-long day. This morning, I browned the turkey, then added it to all the yummy veggies and cooked on low while I was at work. I just love coming home to a hot meal. Thank the Lord for crock pots.

In the 3rd grade world…

Today was a pretty somber day because there was a school shooting in our area yesterday. However, I have a student who always manages to lighten the mood – no matter what the situation.

It started when a boy was telling the class that he was going to kill his brother for stealing his after-school snack (kind of funny in its own right…). A classmate who was listening to this exclaimed…

“You can’t kill your brother…you’ll have to go to jubilee!

“Uh, jubilee…?” I asked questioningly

“Yeah, you know the place that kids under 18 go to jail”

“ mean ‘juvie’ – juvenile detention. ”

I will be calling it jubilee from this point forward.

Pin It!
