Afternoon guys! Hope you guys are having a wonderful Monday so far! Just remember, it means there’s only 4 more days til the weekend instead of 5 now 😉
Today’s eats have been pretty interesting as I still haven’t gone to the grocery store (on the to-do list for tonight)! We are in severe, dire need for some fresh fruit and veggies in our house! First up, some peanut M&Ms because, well, you know, it’s the day after Easter!
That’s 2 smoked ribs and 2 smoke chicken wings. Like I said, Nate spent some time smoking some meat over the weekend, and we’re using it for lunches up here at work! Once I get the store that meat should be accompanied by a big salad, but today I settled on this orange in it’s stead:
Definitely one of the best oranges ever, although I could not get it to peel for the life of me! I finally just cut it into wedges and went to town on those. Lunch was a VERY messy ordeal seeing as how the meat and bbq sauce managed to make it all over my face and hands, and the juicy orange dripped everywhere while I was eating it. Let’s just say that a good scrubbing of my desk area ensued after I was done eating 🙂
I went on a walk instead of a run/walk today, and everything was fine until I had only 20 minutes left to go. At that point my knee started hurting again! Tonight I’m going to be researching doctors in the area and making an appointment ASAP. There’s no way this is normal, and I’ve done everything I can think of to keep it from hurting! When I got back I drowned my sorrows in a bowl of 100-calorie popcorn with seasoned salt and a large bottle of water:
I’m not a huge popcorn fan, but sometimes it just hits the spot as a salty snack, so I make sure to keep a couple of the plain 100-calorie packs in my desk at work. I can’t eat it plain, but at the very least I always add pepper for extra FLAVAH! Tonight’s dinner is going to be vegetable fried brown rice (and some chicken), so I wanted to make sure that I have an appetite for that 🙂
I can’t remember who asked this today, but what are some pantry staples that you have? OR what are some go-to dishes you can make in a snap from stuff that’s in the pantry? I’m always looking for new ideas of things that are easy to keep on hand to make quick and flavorful dishes! I always have canned beans, crushed tomatoes, pasta, rice, and plenty of spices, but I just got another great idea from RhodeyGirlTests: sundried tomatoes!
