The Weekend Is Here!

As per usual, I started the day with a cafe au lait on my way into work. For breakfast, I had a repeat of thursday. A bowl of multi-grain Cheerios topped with flax seed, dried blueberries and milk.


We had a late lunch planned so I snacked on some red pepper chunks with natural PB. MMMM….goood!


We had a v. special lunch because it was K’s last day. At my job, I am one of three women that work there and with K leaving, it is down to just two. We are really going to miss her. K is the kind of girl that if you didn’t love her so much, you would totally hate her. For our lunch, I picked up sushi for T, K and myself. I had the vegetable maki combo with had three small rolls. One was a sweet potato roll, one was a vegan roll and one was a futomaki. All of them were delicious but I thoroughly enjoyed the sweet potato roll!


After our lunch, we had a twizzler party. We gave K about 6lbs of them because she loves them so. We tried all the flavors, lemon was my favorite. I didn’t take any pictures because it just didn’t feel like the right thing at the time. I was on a major sugar high the rest of the afternoon and finally came cashing down when it was time to go home.

Once I got home, I made a quick dinner to warm us up from the cold. I heated up some TJ’s butternut squash and apple soup with a dollop of greek yogurt


and grilled cheese on sandwich thins.


I didn’t really like the soup at all, I guess sweet soup isn’t my thing. I ended up eating only the grilled cheese and half of one of the sandwiches I made for the dear husband.  I really fought off the munchies that I am sure was a result of all of that afternoon sugar. We watched a little DVR and then went to bed. The house was so cold because our heat pump is having a hard time keeping up but I always sleep best when it is cold!

What is your favorite meal when it is cold outside?
