hi yall! Sorry for the combined lunch + dinner post but as you know, I’ve been at work all day then when I got home I rushed to study a bit for my test tonight before making dinner! I hope I do well!! It should be a really fun night though and one I’ve actually been looking forward to for the entire 3 weeks because tonight we are making…….BAGELS! I LOVE bagels! We are making old fashioned NY style bagels as well as those huge soft pretzels. You better believe I’m having a bagel with pb for breakfast tomorrow! I’ve been thinking about it all day! Its also my Chef’s birthday tonight so we are doing a little surprise celebration for him. So….hopefully (despite the test) it will be a fun, easy and maybe early? night!
Back to the rest of the day though—I have a new obsession: Italian Deli Style Tofurky. Man, this stuff is GREAT! It was peppery and a little spicy and made an absolute perfect sandwich when combined with my homemade whole wheat bread, a slice of all natural pepper jack cheese, spinach and honey mustard. So good and so filling. I’m telling you–tofurky is a lot more filling than actual turkey for some reason. I just feel so satisfied after eating it. I also had a juicy navel California navel orange (love these because they don’t have any seeds!) with it and a tiny piece of dark chocolate for dessert.
For a snack later in the afternoon I packed more homemade trail mix. I highly suggest doing this at home because it comes in so handy and you can totally customize it to what you like. I like homemade trail mix much more than plain old bars. Trail mix is just more exciting to me! Its filling too with good-for-you fats. 🙂
Dinner tonight was leftovers. I heated up the rest of the spicy beans and kale dish and had it with mashed cauliflower (love this stuff) and couscous. Has anyone tried whole wheat couscous? I’ve looked for it at the store but couldn’t find it and was wondering if it tasted any different. I love couscous because its so quick to cook and so filling with all that volume. I also had a small spinach salad with broccoli slaw and bell pepper with Annie’s dressing on the side.
Off to school now to take a test and make bagels! Expect fun pictures in the morning!
