my weekend included two delicious dinners out, and what better time to re-enjoy than a gloomy monday back at work? haha.
“what i ate wednesday” is hosted by jenn at peas and crayons. stop by if you get a chance and check out everyone else’s meals for the week.
i started the morning with a bowl of oatmeal at my desk. not as great as sunday’s bowl, but still pretty tasty. i pulled out the “sunshine fruit porridge” from the cabinet. it’s basically instant oatmeal with some dried fruit pieces, but i bought it at the irish/english store nearby, so it feels fancy when i eat it. topped it with a kiwi, and added a donated banana from a coworker.
EP came into work late after an appointment, and treated me to a drink from wawa — half coffee, half french vanilla cappuccino. :-) i tried to photograph my happiness. iphone craziness may have ensued… and i still didn’t get a very good one. i’ll leave you with six tiny photos instead.
i didn’t get hungry after my 16 oz of heaven until around 2pm. lunch brought more chana masala from indeblue. there, i order “as mild as possible,” even though i’m fine with regular at my usual indian restaurant. it was pretty delicious. maybe a little sweet. but so much protein, i called it a draw.
i cannot believe it, but i did not snack at all on monday! [today was a completely different story… but we’re only talking about monday right now.] i guess it was the big drink, and maybe extra protein at lunch, but i was busy and didn’t think about wanting any snacks.
i played with photos and albums and lightroom for a couple of hours after work, to celebrate the most recent snapfish sale and catch up on printing the last few months… by the time i was ready for dinner [a real dinner, and no crazy snacking after work], italian leftovers sounded pretty good. i didn’t think i had many gnocchi left from sunday, so i set to work on additions. and then i realized it would have been all i needed.
brussels sprouts with earth balance, leftover gnocchi, and a chik’n patty with mozzarella + leftover red sauce. i felt like i was eating like a queen, and i had almost an entire day of leftovers.
tuesday was very nice, but slightly less healthy. :p i guess that means tomorrow will be healthier. goodnight!
