This week has been weird. I had Monday off for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, and then I got a call on Monday night letting me know that, because of a wind chill in the negatives, we’d have a two-hour delay on Tuesday. It’s nice to have some extra time to get stuff down around the apartment, but it also makes it so much more difficult to go back to work! I survived the work day, though, and the busyness of the evening afterwards . Here’s what my eats looked like for Tuesday, January 22.
Breakfast (8:00 am)
One nice thing about a two-hour delay is the ability to sleep in. However, I wake up with Jordan’s alarm regardless of my schedule, so I watched “Gilmore Girls” in bed for a while before getting up for breakfast. I had oatmeal with peanut butter, cinnamon, dark chocolate , and a few Quaker oatmeal squares, with a cup of green tea on the side.
Lunch (12:40 pm)
Another nice thing about a two-hour delay? No 10:20 am lunch! It was so nice to eat lunch at…well… lunch time. I had a spinach salad topped with broccoli slaw, dried cherries, walnuts, apple cider vinegar and olive oil. Plus, a cup of Chobani Bite on the side.
Snack (2:00 pm)
I guess I didn’t pack enough for lunch (I’m so used to eating at 10:20 when I’m not very hungry), because around 2:00, my stomach started growling. I ate a Chocolate Dipped Coconut LUNA bar — my favorite flavor — to tide me over for the rest of the work day!
Snack (5:30 pm)
Jordan and I had a meeting to get to at 6, so I knew I needed to eat something before we left. I had no idea how long it would take, and I get pretty grumpy when I’m hungry. I had a piece of my sister’s homemade banana bread, slathered with butter.
Dinner (9:00 pm)
By the time we got home from our meeting, it was almost 9:00, and I knew that I needed to make something quick and easy. I don’t like eating much that late at night anyway, so I made a sweet potato, topped with a wedge of Laughing Cow Cheese and an egg.
Dessert (9:30 pm)
I was craving something sweet after dinner, so I decided to whip up this chocolate chip cookie for one. Don’t judge this cookie by its appearance — it was yummy!
Shortly after dessert, it was bedtime. I have a full day of work today, and I needed my beauty sleep to prepare for it!
Do you ever have a delay or day off because of bad winter weather?
Do you have any good “dessert for one” recipes?
