Super Awesome

Look! My tulips are already starting to open a bit…I love it!


It’s the little things that help keep a smile on my face. Smile



Today’s lunch was suuuuper awesome. Yes, I know I sound like a 5th grader, but that’s exactly how I want to describe it. Super Awesome. Winking smile

After going almost two years of having the same lunch over and over again (the Monday Usual, which is still enjoyed on occasion!) it’s such a pleasant change to switch things up a bit. Especially when there’s leftovers from an awesome meal the night before.


I put together an easy salad using last night’s leftover zucchini shrimp skewer, romaine lettuce, grape tomatoes, red pepper, and some fat-free President Mediterranean feta cheese.


On the side, I snacked on some homemade pita chips! We still have a couple pitas leftover from last week’s chicken souvlaki, so I cut half of one into wedges, topped it with a little cooking spray and spices, and popped ‘em under the broiler for a few minutes.


Obviously, they could have come out a little sooner. Winking smile

But luckily they were still quite tasty, and I actually ended up crumbling a couple of them up and putting them right into my salad.



This afternoon I also got to work in the kitchen once again…but this time, it was cookies.


My mom asked if I could bake a batch of sugar cookies for her to bring to work, so I happily obliged. These may just be one of my favorite sugar cookies to date…


…and I’ll be sure to be sharing the recipe very shortly! Winking smile


Tonight, Jay and I are headed to my in-laws for dinner…not sure what’s on the menu, but I’m sure it’ll be yummy!

Question for the Day:

Do you tend to stick to a similar routine with meals or do you prefer to switch it up?

    Love your pretty flowers! I tend to get into a routine (or rut?) with meals, especially breakfast and lunch, and I’ll switch things up every few weeks. With so much on my mind between school and work, I think my brain is too tired to dream up new meals and I stick to what works. Your salad looks awesome though!

    I almost bought myself some fresh flowers today when I was downtown then I forgot :( yours look beautiful though!!
    Sometimes I think I’ll like a routine and then I try to change it up. It’s always nice to try new things, I need to do so more often.

    Pretty tulips! It is the little things, isn’t it???

    I get into the worst ruts with lunch foods, especially when I have to pack things for school. I’m trying to make a new habit of mixing it up! Today, I did an egg white McMuffin with ricotta, tomato, and fresh basil. It was delish! I think just having such a different experience really made me want to try more new combos!

    I am a creature of habit!! When I find a meal I like I tend to repeat it quite often. I usually have the same things for breakfast and lunch and then mix it up at dinner time. Even then our dinners tend to be same several meals rotated around. I’m not sure whether you would call that a habit or a rut?? : )

    My breakfast and lunch are pretty much the same every single day! I know I am boring! I try to switch my dinner’s up, but I usually end up eating the same things every week ha. It makes grocery shopping really easy!!

    Dinner is always varied. Breakfast tends to be yog mess or oatmeal as I enjoy them to much to both experimenting! I gave about 7 go-to meals for lunch which I shake up every so often…or at least try to :)

    I love tulips. They are one of my favorite flowers. I might just have to go buy myself some. And I’m always in search of a good sugar cookie. I can’t wait for the recipe.
