I’m so glad to see you guys are liking my Chocolate Raspberry Bars as much as I do. Seriously, they’re amazing…and they’re dangerous. Don’t say I didn’t warn ya!
So as I mentioned before, Wednesdays and Thursdays are my long days of work, so they require a little extra effort as far as planning meals goes. Since I’m away from home for both lunch and dinner, I need to make sure I’m on top of my game either the night before or the morning of, so I don’t end up either a) digging through the jar of cookies that stare back at me all.day.long here, or b) spend money on take-out food that I really don’t need.
Even though this is only my second week of work , I’m already starting to figure out somewhat of a schedule that works for me. Preferably, I like getting my meals put together the night before; that way, I can spend my extra time in the morning taking care of other blog- or house-related tasks. Mind you, I can almost guarantee that I will not always be as on top of my game as I am right now, but I’ll go with for as long as it lasts.
Last night after dinner, I figure that since I was already out in the kitchen, I’d just take care of getting today’s meals ready, so here’s what I’ve got packed up with me.
For lunch, I chose to have the salad , loaded with lotsa colorful veggies and topped with some pineapple peach salsa. I also ended up having half of a bagel that I packed last minute topped with a small smear of peanut butter (gotta get that protein in there!).
For dinner, I packed up a tuna salad that I whipped up quick last night. Depending on my mood, I like to make my tuna salad savory or sweet, and last night I was craving sweet…so into the mix went:
- 1 can tuna in water, drained
- 3-4 tbsp sweet relish
- 2 tbsp plain Greek yogurt
- red onion
- baby carrots
- sliced red grapes
- dried cranberries
- salt & pepper
Rather than make it as a sandwich, I brought some Wheat Thins to scoop it up with instead. I actually really enjoy eating it this way most of the time; it almost makes it seem like it lasts longer? Either way, it was a good batch and it didn’t last long enough.
As for snacks, I also brought a peach and a Chocolate Chip Cherry Torte Larabar.
And to drink? Water. Lots and lots of water.
Aaaaaand I may have had a pumpkin spice coffee thrown into there at some point this afternoon too…just sayin’.
Tonight is Modern Family night, but I’m thinking that if I want to stick to this extra sleep thing that I may have to DVR it. I guess we’ll have to see what time I get home!
Question for the Evening:
Do you have any shows you’re totally committed to watching? Do you watch them live or do you like to record them to watch at another time?
