It was just like being back in college, coming home after a night out and filling up on crackers, Wheat Thins and whatever you can find to slather on them (hummus, jam?). Plus a few handfuls of cereal. Right before bed.
I feel like I should be spending an afternoon out on the quad or something! I guess it could have been worse, I haven't been resorting to take-out pizza or Chinese food yet!
Lunches have become more elaborate instead. I don't time to prepare a real lunch, so this weekend I made a big batch of spaghetti squash, and some proteins (some white flaky fish filets and the shrimp) and have been bringing those, a wrap and a package of arugula to work and assembling a wrap every day. It's enjoyable but most importantly, everything is already in it's own tupperware container so I just grab-and-go. The black bean brownies have been most helpful.
Finally, I totally forgot about the 2 mini pumpkin oatmeal pancakes I had left in the freezer. There's a lot of stuff in the freezer I've been forgetting about and rediscovering this month! This little guy is slathered with the cranberry sam that I made last week. =)
I finally had a little time today though, and made broccoli/cauliflower soup that is really quite tasty. More on that later!
What's your favorite super-fast, no effort required lunch meal? Frozen dinners don't count!
Enjoy your weekend!
