The title is a nod to A’s appreciation of tonight’s dinner, but more on that later.
In spite of last night’s late ending, I managed to drag myself out of bed, into the shower, and out the door in time to get to school and get set up. I ate a apple pie Larabar on the train for breakfast.
Randomly, my crazy mixed class was perfect today; it was a very much appreciated change of pace. The rest of the day wasn’t as hot, but I feel like I’m all whined out so I’ll just leave it at that 🙂
It was a busy school day so I ended up eating lunch in courses spread out throughout the day. A bag of green seedless grapes during my 11am prep, and a Vita Coco, pina colada flavored unsweetened coconut milk during lunch time.
And the leftovers from last night’s dinner as I left school around 4.
Instead of coming straight home I went to Starbucks so I could get my grading for the day all finished up. I ate a chocolate cream cheese muffin and my signature coffee order (grande with room iced Americano; with skim milk I add in) while I worked.
At 330calories this muffin was the healthiest choice in the display case, isn’t that sort of sad Starbucks?
When I got home I kept with the productivity theme and made the rest of my supplies for the week and bubbled in my official 2nd quarter grades. It took me longer to fill out the stupid grading forms than it did to actually grade my students!!!
Dinner tonight, actually started last night,
yogurt spiced chicken.
Put desired amount of skinless (bone-in would be better but I just can’t do bones) chicken breasts in a large baggie with enough fat-free plain yogurt to coat. Shake in salt, pepper, curry, and paprika. Smoosh bag around and refrigerate overnight. Cook for 45minutes at 375*.
I ate 1/2 a chicken breast sliced over salad that A decided to rave about.
- a Romaine base
- 3 chopped figs
- 10 walnuts
- 1oz chopped smoked Gouda
- 15squirts Balsalmic Breeze dressing
It was super-yummy and satisfying.
Somehow, it is 10:30, so I’ve got to scoot! What are your top three favorite salad toppers?
