After two very (very, very, very) lazy days, it was time for a day of work. This Sunday was all about getting things done. I –
- put away two loads of laundry
- did some dishes
- ran some errands
- organized my school binder
- made all of my note cards from last week’s notes
- did a case study for clinical practice
- made a delicious dinner
Breakfast was worth a thumbs up too.
I stirred a Liberte Coconut Yogurt into a big scoop of 1% large curd cottage cheese, topped with shredded sweetened coconut.
The coconut flavor was nice, but the resulting texture was mind-blowing. Too creamy for words.
In between errands and school work was lunch.
I picked up a grab bag-style to-go container from the Co-op.
A salad of yam, corn, and black beans; cilantro tofu; peanut tofu with lots of broccoli; and a little bit of vegan pasta salad.
We took Webster with us on our walking errands and his little sweater was so becoming!
He’s still not 100% down with snow, and shivers like a total wimp. I tease him mercilessly, telling him that his ancestors in Germany only used to hunt badgers in a climate-controlled living room.
While we were out I found a new M&M variety – Dark Chocolate Mint!
Delish. These had just the right level of chill to them.
Sometime between the lunch and dinner hours we had salads.
Romaine with chopped cucumbers and a dressing made of the remains of the yogurt Caesar shaken with evoo and cider vinegar.
Dinner was a real winner.
For 4 servings of creamy, cheesy, buttery, vegetarian yet protein-rich pasta, combine –
- ~ 4 servings of small shape pasta, cooked
- ~ 1.5 cups peas
- 2 pint mushrooms sautéed with chopped green onion and 5 Tbsp butter
- 4 oz sharp cheddar, shredded
- 12 oz 0% Plain Fage
So much yum! I didn’t tell the husband that there was plain Greek yogurt (which he thinks he hates) in the pasta and I didn’t hear any complaints. I think pasta with peas and cheese might be our favorite dish.
I’ve got to get back to work; I’m going to hit with week with running start!
Which flavors of M&M’s have you gotten to try? I think I’ve had them all – regular, peanut, almond, peanut butter, dark chocolate, pretzel, cinnamon, and coconut – the only flavor I missed with strawberry pb which I never found despite hours of searching!
