It’s officially crunch time! The suitcases are out, the lists have been made…and I have yet to pack one stinkin’ thing. Oh boy.
Needless to say, today is definitely going to be another busy one, but thankfully I have the day off from work, so that gives me a little extra time in my day. Let’s see if I actually take advantage of it.
So I don’t know about you, but whenever there’s a vacation coming up, it is officially deemed “clean out the fridge and eat up all the produce” time in the house. We managed to get away with not grocery shopping this week, which was great, and we’re making pretty good job progress on clearing things out.
Last night’s dinner was a perfect example…
Jay and I each had side salads filled up with whatever veggies were in the drawer. For him, that meant lettuce and red peppers. BORING! For me, that meant lettuce, grape tomatoes, baby carrots, broccoli, red peppers, and Italian dressing. Still sort of boring, but better than nothin’.
To go along with my salad, I made another turkey and cheese omelet made with 2 slices deli turkey, 1 wedge of The Laughing Cow Light Swiss Cheese, and a generous helping of pineapple salsa.
For it being a “clean out the fridge” sort of dinner, this meal was actually pretty darn delicious. I followed up dinner with another dessert plate a couple of hours later before calling it a night.
Since I just had eggs for dinner last night, I really wasn’t in the mood for them this morning, so I went with my other go-to option: French Toast Oatmeal.
Today’s batch included 1/2 a mashed banana mixed in the oats, fresh strawberries (finished those up!), and a drizzle of sugar-free maple syrup.
The syrup was a seriously awesome addition…why did I not think of this before? French toast = syrup, duh!
My coffee, however, was sort of on the ‘meh’ side. I used up the rest of the skim milk yesterday, which meant I had to use almond milk in my coffee which is really not my favorite. I love almond milk in anything and everything else…except for coffee.
Oh yeah, and Jell-o pudding mix, too. Don’t try it…it doesn’t set very well.
Alright, it’s about time to get down to business! LOTS to do today.

Question for the Morning:
Are there any foods/liquids that you like one way but can’t stand another way?
