I love participating in Jenn’s What I Ate Wednesday party! Some people post pictures of what they ate during the week while I elect to post pictures of what I’ve eaten all day.
Today was one of those days where I wasn’t very active and I wasn’t very hungry. This isn’t a typical day for me but I went through it and just ate what I was hungry for. It is the last day of work for a total of 5 days off so my mind wasn’t really on food today!
For breakfast I ate a handful of almonds and both of the bars in the Nature Valley package. They were yummy!
For lunch my coworker was running out to get Chinese so I went ahead and asked him to pick me up something as well. I kept it very simple with grilled veggies and brown rice. A small amount of sweet & sour sauce was used to grilled the veggies.
I wasn’t too overly hungry though so I stopped about half way through my portion. This is what was left behind.
No Chinese takeout meal is complete without a cookie that holds fortunes!
It never fails though – I’m always disappointed with my fortunes. I mean, what in the world does this mean anyway?
About 3:00pm I started feeling the afternoon blues. I was ready to get out of work and start my extra long weekend but I needed something to get me through the afternoon. I made a cup of tea and hoped that it would put some pep in my step. Unfortunately it really didn’t. But it was good nonetheless!
I was so thrilled to leave work and get my holiday weekend started! Tommy and Alexis were home all day doing their own thing (Tommy has been on vacation since before Christmas – lucky dog) and no one really wanted to put a dinner together so we all did our own thing for dinner. Tommy had some left over pasta and Alexis and I made peanut butter & jelly! One of our favorite meals!
In addition to our pb&j’s we cut up an apple to share and added a little some extra!
For Christmas my cousin Shakira sent us a box of delicious goodies from Trader Joe’s. It was awesome that she thought of us, for one, but to send us items from a store that we don’t have access to down here was amazing! She picked all the right things, too!
One of them was a delicous jar of cocoa almond spread. It was absolutely heavenly on top of our apple slices.
The apple slices tasted like chocolate covered apples. They were amazing. I can’t wait to try the other items she sent in the box as well. Thanks Kira!
I’m off of work until Tuesday and I’m thrilled beyond belief. I’m so excited for a bit of a break. I want to do the following while I’m on my mini-vakay:
- blog about my 2012 goals
- wrap up my 2011 Project Life scrapbook
- get my 2012 Project Life scrapbook prepared
- workout 3x
- See The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
- Read Reshaping It All
It’s going to be a great break!
What is something that you can’t get in your neck of the woods that you crave?
