After it’s auspicious start, my day continued to run enjoyably. Definitely not a Monday’s Monday!
The weather was (mostly) fine, I got an 82% on last week’s big test (lower than I’d like, but 10points higher than the last one), and there were lots of delicious eats. Like lunch –
Into 2 Tbsp of Smuckers Natural Peanut Butter with Honey,
I dipped baby carrots,
and a Fuji apple.
Oh man, this apple! It was beyond sweet and crunchy, best apple I’ve had yet this year!
Not quite enough food though apparently, because my stomach growled all through my second afternoon class. I’ve got another big, important test on Wednesday and I needed to be note-taking not dreaming of dinner! Sidenote – when I get bored in class I totally work on my meal plan for the upcoming month; there are always so many new recipes I’m excited about.
The day felt like Spring instead of Winter – finally! – but by the afternoon the wind was howling. It was loud enough that my teacher had to pause a few times because she couldn’t talk over the nose. Thankfully one of my friends graciously offered to drive me home, so I didn’t have to worry about blowing away.
I was blown away however (ha!), by my tasty dinner.
What better way to get in your greens than with homemade veggie nachos?
I piled corn chips with 50% reduced sharp cheddar, fresh arugula, black beans, and canned jalapeno, then baked at 450* for 10minutes.
Plus plain 0% Oikos and green salsa for dipping.
The salsa was stolen on a Moe’s run and it totally made the nachos. I would love to find green salsa that I could purchase like a not-a-creeper, but our store only sells one kind and it is way too spicy for us.
I ended with a fun dessert, clotted cream fudge.
I don’t have a better picture because the wrapping was a little intense, but I ate half of the box, aka too many servings. We bought this on a whim but it was great; it tasted sort of like extra soft caramels.
two questions for a good Monday
- What do you day-dream about?
- Is there a brand of (not super spicy) tomatillo salsa that you recommend? Preferably one I could order online.
