Today is one of those days where I’m having a really hard time coming up with anything fun, quirky, and/or even slightly interesting to start off my post. So this is what you get.
2 Van’s Lite Waffles topped with Justin’s Vanilla Almond Butter & bananas + coffee
It had been quite a while since I last had some waffles and oh mannnn, were they good.
The rest of my banana from breakfast + 2 energy bites
I also got the chance to try a bit of a unique treat…pear ginger Riesling sorbet(!).
One of the guys I work with actually made it and brought it in to share at our morning meeting. I wanted so badly to love it (I mean, it sounds incredible, right?!) but unfortunately, I just am not a fan of ginger, so I only had a couple small bites.
Despite the fact that it wasn’t my favorite flavor, I did get a newfound desire to try out the ice cream maker we got last December (and still have yet to take out of the box…whoops!). Maybe we’ll have to give it a whirl this weekend…?
Talk about a KILLER salad.
Lettuce, cucumbers, carrots, grape tomatoes, pickles, red onions, feta cheese, dried cranberries, avocado, and balsamic vinaigrette dressing. Oh myyyy…that thing was just too delicious.
Shortly after lunch I also snacked on a cara cara orange (my absolute favorite orange!), which I almost forgot to snap a picture of.
I was pretty hungry by the time I got home from work so I snacked on a couple small handfuls of Van’s BBQ chips while Lucas napped and I worked on putting dinner together.
Oh, it could not come fast enough. I was starrrrrrving!
Somehow, I recently came across an old post of mine where I made this Quick Patstitsio recipe and it really sounded good, so I made sure to pick up the ingredients at the store over the weekend to make it this week.
Mmm mmmmm. It tasted so good that I had to go back for a small serving of seconds, and I’m pretty sure I would have inhaled that plate in record time if I wasn’t also feeding Lucas his dinner simultaneously.
Nothing like ending the day with a nice, sweet treat.
Once Lucas was in bed and the dishes were done/bottles were washed and filled/my lunch was made for today, I sat down and thoroughly enjoyed a small dish of cookie dough ice cream while Jay and I caught up on our Monday DVR’d shows (Mike & Molly and HIMYM). Perfect way to end the day, if ya ask me.
What kind of snack are you loving at the end of your day lately? Sweet or savory?
