Catching Up

September 3, 2009


Today has been a super busy day, and I’m just sitting down to my computer now! But also a  pretty awesome day, and you know why?


I saved 40% on my cable/tv/internet bill by asking if they had a student discount!!!



Catching up on yesterday’s eats….  P1030045 P1030046

peach + yogurt with granola. Outside 🙂


Dinner was not the summer extravaganza I promised… that got pushed back to tonight! You’re going to have to check back tonight for it 😉


Instead, dinner was breakfast!


Bacon and eggs (from the Farmer’s Market!) and toast with homemade jam. I love breakfast for dinner.


A scoop of ice cream for dessert. Note that it’s in a coffee mug. Works for portion control, and when you have very few clean dishes ;-) 


And a glass of milk before bed. I almost never drink plain milk, but it sounded and tasted so good last night!


Catching up to today…. 


which started with some overnight oats. I was impressed!

1/3 C oats, soaked overnight with 1/3 C strawberry yogurt. I added 1/2 a banana and some coconut flakes this morning.

It was a very interesting texture. Enjoyable. But kind of odd.



The overnight oats didn’t hold me over as long as a bowl of real oatmeal would have, so I had this bar around 11. Nature’s Path Optimum Peanut Butter Energy Bar.



It was good – I’ll buy it again (bonus, it was cheaper than the Luna/Clif bars!). Light peanut butter taste and not too sweet. Plus, it had swirly icing, which is always cool. 🙂


Lunch was grabbed quickly at Safeway on my way home from getting my awesome deal on cable!


Kinda disapointing though – a veggies sandwich, with artichokes. Turns out, I don’t like artichokes, and I picked them all out.

This makes the list of veggies I don’t like: artichokes, mushrooms and green beans. Yuck! lol


I balanced lunch out with some guaranteed tastyness, a Pumpkin Spice Latte!



And a piece (or 2) of cake in the lab afternoon. It’s someone’s birthday, and would have been rude to say no! right? 



It was called ‘broken glass’ – whipped cream with jello on a graham cracker crust. A perfect summer cake… which will go perfectly with my summer dinner tonight!


What vegetables do you not like?

    I hate cauliflower!

    How do you make overnight oats?

      I combined the oats + yogurt and just let sit overnight in a bowl. It made the oats sort of plump up, if that makes sense? I think it would also be good with some berries!
