Did everyone remember to reset the clocks for today? I’m thrilled with DLS this year, it’s been entirely too dark the past few mornings. Though it does stink to be out-of-sync with my parents again; we don’t change the clocks back home so they’ll be an hour ahead of me all winter.
I needed that extra hour today too. I had a 10:30 group meeting and I’m not sure I would have made it on time at “real” 10:30. My friends Janessa, Kim, and I worked on our cultural food project at the Elmwood SPoT from 10:30 to 2. I bought breakfast to eat while we worked.
A giant fruit cup.
There was honeydew, watermelon, and pineapple in there and I gladly paid $3 for it.
An everything bagel with veggie cream cheese.
This was ok but I’m not sure why they used so much cream cheese. I scrapped some off after the photo and I ended up losing a lot of the veggies.
And an iced coffee with lots of skim milk.
Iced because we sat at a table in front of a big window and were fricking boiling.
At least the warmer weather meant we could take the dog on a longer walk this afternoon. We even took him off his leash on the block near our house so he could practice being a “free-range” puppy.
I ate this Stonyfield 0% Chocolate Underground when I got home.
Served in my ice-cream cone bowl because it was eaten as a dessert. I topped the yogurt with a Tbsp each butterscotch chips and shredded coconut.
Butterscotch chips are way better in yogurt than chocolate because they don’t harden as much in the cold.
Since I’m working from 6-9 tonight we ate an early afternoon dinner.
It was the early bird special, stir-fry style!
Into our wok went:
- chopped broccoli
- cole slaw mix cabbage and carrots
- canned straw mushrooms (<– love!)
- canned water chestnuts
- smidge of hoisin sauce
- 5 Tbsp stir fry sauce
Underneath my serving of veggies was 3oz of cooked whole wheat spaghetti that I reheated in a pan with 1/2 Tbsp sesame oil and a large egg.
It was a very tasty and satisfying dinner.
It feels a little strange to blog before work, but since 9 o’clock will feel like 10pm I doubt I’ll want to eat anything when I get home. If I decide to snack I’ll update.
