Ugh! I’m reporting with more crazy internet problems. Brighthouse seriously needs to get their stuff together because I’ve had nothing but problems this year in this apartment! My roommate called and they are coming out Monday afternoon to “fix” it (right), so right now I must resort to the tiny bubble of wireless connection I get sitting outside on the steps of my apartment. It works for right now but it isn’t the best situation!!
I really liked that “Flax and Fiber” bread I had my sandwich on today. It was very chewy and “wholesome” and didn’t taste like cardboard. All the ingredients are all natural and it has four grams of protein per slice! My sandwich was nice and filling with my peach and around 2:00 (my usual snack time) I had my string cheese and almonds…..but I found some “honey mustard and onion” pretzel bites under the desk and had a small handful of those too…..maybe around 6? Yummy carbs!
Speaking of carbs, that’s what was for dinner tonight! I had some frozen tofu in the freezer so I quickly defrosted it in hot water for about 10 minutes then sauteed it in my cast iron skillet so it got nice and springy and crunchy on the outside. I combined that with some organic pasta sauce from Whole Foods and some whole wheat pasta. I also had a spinach salad with grape tomatoes drizzled with balsamic vinegar on the side. This meal has gotten me through some serious library nights when I was an undergrad. I always made it because its SO easy and QUICK and keeps me full for hours because of the super proportion of carbs and protein. I highly recommend this!
I’m bringing another Dessert shake for later with 1/2 cup soy and 1/2 cup water. This worked really well last night and was very satisfying. I’m not going to have much time at all for a break tonight with my practical going on, so this is something I can sip while I work!
Tonight’s agenda is:
peanut butter cookies
chocolate chip cookies
white chocolate sauce
temper chocolate for s’mores
Let’s hope I can get all that done in 5 hours! I’m going to have to work fast and be very efficient with clean up. I need to get everything done so tomorrow night I can just make the nougatine as well as icing for the cookie monsters and then plate it and be done!
Wish me luck!
ps—-what’s your favorite night-time snack?
