April 16th, 2009: Breakfast and lunch

Hi guys!  I stayed up late last night to finish the last Pens game of the season that we had taped.  Or should I say, DVR’d?  Is that the more updated term now?  While we watched, there was a snack because I was hungry.

Yogurt + chocolate granola + cranberries.  Mmmm  Scott had a brown ale and I had a few sips of that.  Small because there may or may not be wine in my future this evening.

Since today is my “off” day, I got to sleep in a bit, till 8am.  Woo!  I had a bit of a headache when I got up but it quickly went away.  I did my PysT exercises and iced my leg first thing.  I also had a mug of coffee.

Sipped it while I did some office stuff.  It was just okay.  I woke Scott up and made some yummy breakfast.

I’m trying to stick with eating oats or oatbran even on my off days.  It’s such a good breakfast that I miss it when I don’t eat it.  I decided to go banana nut bread today with the oatbran.  My bananas are still a bit under ripe, so I added in a very small amount of brown sugar to the mix to help the banana out.  I also added in some vanilla extract to give it a little depth.  Crushed walnuts, banana chips, and cranberries on top to complete the banana nut effect.  It was a yummy bowl this morning!  And a wee mug of coffee to go with it.

After that I got busy cleaning the house.  I did that all morning and stopped about 1/2 way through to make some lunch.  Tried something new today.

Tempeh!!  I picked some up at WF a while back but haven’t used it yet.  I decided to finally cut some up and add it to my salad.  I sauteed the cubed tempeh in some olive oil till crispy.  Also in my salad:

  • Mixed greens
  • Sprouts
  • Carrot
  • Celery

Dressed with balsamic, honey, and olive oil.  So good!  The tempeh is interesting.  It smelles like homefries to me as it sautees up but it really doesn’t have much of a flavor to it.  I think dipping it or adding it to something else would help give it a little umph.  I also had some cornbread and fruit salad (cantaloupe, orange, kiwi) to round out the meal.

After lunch I walked Rocky since it was gorgeous outside!  Finally some sunshine and warm weather today.  When we got back, I finished cleaning the house which included mopping the kitchen.  Meh.  I hate mopping.  Then I prepped stuff for dinner tonight and cleaned up.

I’m finally sitting down for a second before heading off to class this evening.  I’m about to have some yogurt or some sort of snack.  Probably yogurt. ;)

It’s almost the weekend!!!  Whee!

Hooray sun!
