Is anyone else wishing it was Thursday? Actually, I’m wishing it was still Monday! I have a lot (a lot, a lot, a lot) of big school stuff going on this week and I’m so not ready. I spent too much of my morning worrying and not enough of it working. Such is life; and I finally got over feeling overwhelmed and got some serious work done this evening.
Breakfast was berrytastic.
Greek Gods Honey Strawberry Greek Yogurt topped with blackberries and a drizzle of maple syrup.
I underestimated how sweet the fresh berries would be (not sour at all!) and this bowl ended up being a little too sugary. The full-fat Greek Yogurt is sweeter than the 0% varieties too. But the new-to-me flavor receives two thumbs up.
I also made myself something hot for the walk to school.
A double-brewed (2 bags tea to 1 cup water) mug of Tea Republic’s red velvet tea with sugar and plain almond milk.
We had a mock Statistics test today before our first real test on Thursday and it went pretty well. We are allowed to bring a “cheat sheet” in so I’m not too worried. I do have to actually make the sheet though!
When I got home I found a package of homemade goodies from my mother-in-law.
I helped myself to many white chocolate dipped pretzels with sprinkles.
And for lunch I helped myself to one of the husband’s tupperwares.
I made him spaghetti with turnip greens, brocoli, and tomato sauce for lunches this week. I gussied up my stolen bowl by reheating it in a skillet with evoo and an egg.
The crunchy, almost burnt bits are my favorite. And not to worry, I packed Adam a sandwich for tomorrow.
the devil my hero, when Adam got home this afternoon he made me a big bowl of airpopped ‘corn.
I haaaate cleaning the airpopper and Adam is so sweet to me about regularly dealing with it. As long as you leave off the butter, popcorn makes the best study snack.
Dinner was inspired by my favorite chain restaurant meal.
California Pizza Kitchen’s Thai Chicken Pizza. The Thai Chicken Salad is my favorite but the pizza’s a close second.
For our version we topped a store-bought crust with –
- Wegman’s peanut sauce
- shredded chicken
- chopped green onions
- leftover carrots from the Bahn Mi
- 2% reduced fat mozzarella
- cocktail peanuts
- sesame oil (rubbed into the crust)
It was fantastic! I could only finish one of my slices though; apparently half a pizza was a little too much! But I ate all of my roasted zucchini.
Other than green beans (the long-term reigning favorite), zucchini is this year’s favorite vegetable for roasting.
