Howdy! I have not been following my sleep schedule – – at all – – but I can say that today was quite productive. Every item on my list is now to-done!
The dog has been getting in and out of bed all night long recently and between that and my usually fitful sleep, mornings have felt very difficult this week. I barely had time to make it to work today so I had to take breakfast with me on the walk. This Wegman’s Bean and Cheese Burrito was good but not great.
Something about the flavor and texture made me long for a beverage, and I ended up exploding pinto beans all down the front of my winter coat.
I ate a Honeycrisp apple mid-morning.
Then I spent the rest of my day holed up in the basement like a retail hermit. We got in tons of tons of shipments on Monday and I opened and priced 99% of them today.
I never did have time for lunch at work (I kept my packed food in the fridge for an easy lunch tomorrow!) and I ended up doing double dinners. First was Wegman’s hot bar on a mini-date with the husband.
and chicken dumplings and chicken salad.
Adam and I are obsessed with the dumplings’ dipping sauce and the combination of the sauce stirred into my chicken salad was the bomb.com. <– legit, it tasted so good that was the first expression that popped into my head!
I also ate a big bag of Easter candies from the bulk bins and gave myself a stomach-ache.
A little pain was worth it, the sugar rush totally helped me through the remainder of my internship journaling. Minus breaks for making food and eating food, I chugged away for the remainder of the evening.
Our home dinner was vegetable fried rice.
In the wok (for 2) –
- 1/2 Tbsp sesame oil
- ~1 heaping cup peas
- ~1 heaping cup roasted broccoli
- ~1.5 cups leftover brown rice
- 1 Tbsp tamari
- 1 Tbsp rice vinegar
- 1.5 Tbsp fish sauce
- 1 Tbsp Sriracha
- 3 large eggs
The dish had the potential to be great, but it was way too salty. It’s been awhile since I’ve used fish sauce and I forgot what a sodium-punch it packs. I ate a little less than 2/3 of my plate.
Dessert was a giant, delicious cookie.
We were both big fans of the big cookies and big taste.
