Oatmeal is so good on a cold day.
Fun fact (write this down): I ate lunch exactly one minute earlier today than yesterday.
No flapjacks today! Flapjacks: I’ll be sad when I’m all out, but I’ll be happy to not have to type “flapjacks” anymore.
I’m not sure why I was still hanging around the office at 5:29 PM to the point where I decided I needed a snack…oh, yes I do. I had a meeting run late and didn’t get back to my desk until…5:29 PM, apparently. I had a little work to finish up but I was starting to get hungry, so I guess I decided a huge LifeSavers Gummy Saver would satisfy my appetite until dinner. (??) This thing came in that candy bag, I was kind of dreading eating it because it looked gross, and well…I mean, I didn’t gag or anything, but it wasn’t great. Why do these exist?
Keeping with the theme of dumb snacks…Jeff had come home before Quizzo to go to the gym, and had bought himself an Apple Watch earlier in the day. I had arrived home later than normal and got distracted playing with Jeff’s new Apple Watch, so I didn’t start making myself dinner until way later than I normally would, and I was getting pretty dang hungry (I guess that big-ass Lifesaver didn’t do the trick). To hold myself over, I grabbed this bag of Oreo Thins, which are delicious, and I wanted them gone (they’d been sitting in our snack cabinet for like a month). There were about five left in the bag, and I polished them off. They taste like Thin Mints. Mmm.
You guys, I eat a LOT of vegetables. It was my normal solo Tuesday, so I whipped up the usual (the quinoa burger). I had a bunch of asparagus left from my last Hungry Harvest that was starting to get a bit limp, so I roasted it up with some olive oil, salt, and pepper and ate literally the whole bunch. I don’t mess around when it comes to vegetables. In case you were wondering (you weren’t) (but maybe you were), my pee is VERY fragrant currently. I really know how to build a readership, huh?
I do this thing when I’m home alone where I call my mom and somehow end up talking to her for 3-4 hours and don’t notice that I’ve spent literally the entire evening on the phone. I was a little hungry by the time I hung up, and was planning on staying up a bit late (a snow day was predicted for the next day, so we decided to work from home which means I get to sleep in), so I made myself some banana ice cream. I’m sure you’re familiar by now, but if you’re not, welcome to heaven. All you do is take a frozen banana and blend it (this particular go-round I added a spoonful of peanut butter and a dash of cocoa power) until creamy, and you have a seriously delicious frozen treat. I had the end of a bag of chocolate chips sitting around so I tossed that in, and I discovered some toffee bits from my Christmas baking extravaganza so I threw a few of those on there too.
