I know I said this morning that I’d be a grump, but today wasn’t so bad. Coffee helped.
I got dressed quickly enough that I had time to take Webster on a morning walk and when I met the husband to do a backpack/dog swap he ended up driving me to school. We got iced coffee with skim milk along the away.
Sidenote – my bladder probably wished I’d skipped the coffee; I also had a breakfast drink, a soda, and a huge bottle of water. At one point all four were sitting on my desk, which made everyone crack up.
Breakfast was a celebration of coconut.
and a Zico Chocolate Coconut Water.
I tried the chocolate Zico in Ohio last spring and loved it, it’s like a lighter Chocolate Nesquick! When I finally spotted some at Wegmans last week I freaked out.
My lunch looked an awful lot like last night’s dinner.
Tempeh and veggie brown rice casserole topped with white cheddar. I microwaved it at school.
I have one final casserole serving stashed in the freezer and I’m looking forward to remembering it in a few months.
After class I spent time on some job applying things. <– please cross your fingers for me! Then I took the world’s hardest nap. When you wake up from a nap remembering dreams you know you needed sleep.
Dinner was simple but oh-so-good.
- Chop the top off of a bulb of garlic, drizzle with evoo, stick in an oven at 400* for 30ish minutes.
- Boil ~1.75 cups of bow tie pasta. Add ~.25 cup frozen edamame and 1 pint frozen mushrooms during the last three minutes of cooking. Drain and return to pan.
- Squeeze roasted garlic into pasta. Add ~3 Tbsp creamy mushroom soup, ~2 Tbsp evoo, and a liberal sprinkling of salt. Stir vigorously.
- Portion onto two plates. Dig in.
Adam gave me a bunch a bunch of crap when I told him the dinner plan but we both swooned our way through the finished dish. Roasted garlic is so flipping creamy.
I’m up late because I was typing up the posts with the pie and dog treat recipes from last weekend. It was worth it even if no one else tries them out because I will definitely make both recipes again. In the meantime, I’ll see you tomorrow at noon for some window shopping!
