Post title comes from the ironic zen-ness to my day. Going on my trip made this week a living hell, but going on my trip also made me beyond happy and thrilled, so it all kind of evens out. Similar sitch (adore that word) with my meals.
I ran out the door without breakfast and ended up stress-eating 5 fun sized candy bars from my desk (no pic, bag was too heavy for a camera). Clearly on the lower end of healthy breakfasts, but my veggierific lunch evened things out!
Baby carrots with a Tbsp of blue cheese dressing and a Odwalla Pumpkin Smoothie! (my celery had become more chewy then crunchy – gross!). Lunch was yummy and put a smile on my face, but could have been more filling.
I grabbed dinner the minute I got home at 6pm.
I doctored up our leftovers with the rest of our pine nuts, a dash of salt, a tsp of evoo, and a liberal sprinkle of red pepper flakes.
A slightly more grown up version of the original dish. I imagine when I have kids they’ll be served dish 1 and A and I will eat dish 2; I don’t ever picture myself making 2 meals a night. If you are feeding your kids a healthy diet (and you are keeping a healthy diet) there’s no reason the two shouldn’t be able to converge.
I’m still a bit hungry, and know I’ll be up late, so I’m having on having a snack later. Everyone have a productive evening!
*****Updated to add – I did in fact have a snack, a broccoli roll from Pinos; Yum!
