A recap and a theme night! I get super excited about anything involving a theme (I probably really should have done the sorority thing in college!) and A and I made a list of fun theme nights a bit ago. We finally got to do the first one, but more on that later.
I scrapped the whole “wake up early” thing this morning and instead snuggled with A for more than an hour! xoox. When I did get out of bed, late, I scrambled to the subway and bought this for breakfast.
(yes, I am wearing purple tights!)
For lunch I packed a salad made with the second half of the butter beans.
- 1/2 a can of butter beans
- chopped red, orange, and yellow peppers
- 2T feta cheese
- and homemade dressing – I shook the last of the mini jar of raspberry wasabi mustard with 1/4t evoo and 1/2t rice vinegar – yum!
I was starving all day today. Prior to lunch I actually felt like I was going to pass out in the middle of a class! I had to stay for afterschool so I ate one of the school provided snacks – “heartzels” and apple juice.
At less than 200calories and no saturated fat I think this is a pretty good “government food.”
When I got home I couldn’t resist eating a big fork of peanut butter though!
And then it was on to theme night # 1 – Under the Sea! We rented Finding Nemo and ate these fantastic fishy foods:
We ate in three courses while we watched the movie. First, I swam a few mozzarella goldfish in some Pacific roasted carrot soup.
I ate most of my crackers on the side though, the soup wasn’t really a mixing flavor.
Next I ate my fish sticks.
And finally I topped slow churned vanilla ice cream with some homemade strawberry jam and some gummy fish!
I’m excited for my pd tomorrow; the topic sounds fun and I don’t have to go to school! I got an e-mail saying that breakfast would be provided and lunch was available for purchase at the museum cafe. Since we have less than $5 challenge dollars left the plan is to eat breakfast at home, snag a free snack, then pack a small meal for lunch. Catch ya in the AM!
