It’s gotten to the point where I can pretty much make a bowl of Cookie Dough Oats in my sleep. Good thing I don’t, though, because they get so thick and creamy in the fridge overnight! This morning, in addition to the chocolate and almond butter topping, I added some dried (unsweetened) cherries for a little sweetartness.
After browsing and trying on a few things at Gap and Bloomingdale’s (I have a wedding coming up and don’t have quite the right thing to wear), I went home for lunch. Thanks to all the prep over the weekend, I didn’t have to spend too long assembling my meal!
- spinach with balsamic vinegar
- roasted vegetables
- Ultimate Veggie Burger, with melted cheddar and avocado
- Mmm Sauce, for dipping (and dipping, and dipping)
I ate lunch completely unplugged: the laptop stayed closed, and my phone sat charging in the other room. I was determined to finish my book without any interruptions!
Going home for lunch is nice, but not always the best idea because it makes it really hard to go back to school! But, it was my last psychology class- and last class!- of the semester. All I’ve got now is a math final on Thursday and my psych exam next Monday. And then I’ll have a few days that are completely free before the summer semester starts!
Back on campus, I got really hungry during class, so I dug into a ZonePerfect Trail Mix bar.
The company sent me two bars from their Sweet & Salty line: Cashew Pretzel and Trail Mix. Lately my taste for sweetness has greatly decreased, and I found both of these bars to be way, way too sugary for me. It just didn’t taste like something someone could make in their kitchen, ya know? But Zone does have great marketing packages! Remember what they sent for their Cookie Dough bars?
The weather’s been chilly and rainy all week, which makes it kind of a mess to walk outside in but very cozy to curl up in bed with a good book! After I got home, I read for a couple hours and finally finished my book. I have a long list of things I want to check out of the library, and I’m excited to have the time to read!
Dinner was a little redundant from lunch, but I was craving grains and vegetables. I heated up a bowl of millet with roasted veggies and plenty of Mmm Sauce… I re-drizzled so many times! I’m already halfway through my stash…
For dessert, raw fudge.
Ari suffered through Gossip Girl with me after dinner. I’m sad that the season is over; I don’t want to wait until October for new episodes! We just started watching Parenthood; I like it, but Ari’s not quite drawn in yet. Have you watched it?
What recipes do you know so well that you could make them half-asleep?
