Sickness be damned, I’ve managed to have a good day! I spread my food across a series of munchings, and got a lot of schoolwork done as well.
For lunch I had a Rome apple, some Kashi crackers, and some red pepper cheese.
Crunch-licious! I made the cheese as a pimento cheese spin-off. A diced up the remainder of a jar of roasted red peppers for me, I mixed that with some sliced extra sharp cheddar, and used a dab of light mayo for binding. I wanted to use plain yogurt but A is not a fan.
Worked well, I’d say it is a matched opponent for pimento cheese, and recommend it to all.
I also snacked on a bag of Smart Balance popcorn while I took a Family Guy break with A.
I worked on plans, set up my copies, and have my materials for tomorrow. Unfortunately, I only have two days worth of plans. For some reason my school didn’t give me a curriculum map for this week. This is something I find really frustrating – I’m not allowed to create my own units or follow my own schedule but then they only give us directions a few days in advance (or not at all it seems!). I would much prefer the “extra” work of mapping my whole year myself and getting to read novels. Would any teacher readers like to weigh in?
While I worked I ate a big plate of leftover veggies for dinner. I sprinkled a tsp of evoo on the brussels sprouts and microwaved for 1.5minutes to reheat, delish!
A and I walked to Staples to make some copies, the weather is still pretty nice so it was great to get out of the house. When we returned I had this snack.
(that’s a TJ’s 100calorie dark chocolate bar) The drink packet was a gift, last Christmas, so I felt like I needed to use it. Not as healthy as a tea bag, but not too bad either.
I added a splash of skim milk to help it cool down and it was actually pretty great tasting. If I see these anywhere I would maybe buy some (although not this month!).
I am finishing up my gradebook set up for the new quarter and then it’s shower and off to bed. Sweet dreams to all!
