Today has been quite the hectic day. It was a Monday, first of all, which is certainly not my favorite day of the week.
It actually started off well. I awoke to immediately stick a roast, carrots, and an onion in the crockpot (does anyone still call it that???) along with a Lipton powdered soup mix and a cup of water so dinner would be ready when I got home. Then I made myself a quick bowl of cereal for breakfast.
In my bowl, I mixed Special K Vanilla and Almond, a handful of plain old fashioned oats, a sprinkle of flaxseed, a sliced banana, and some lowfat milk.
Lunch was just a simple turkey sandwich with reduced fat pepper jack and some spinach plus some yellow mustard. I enjoyed an apple and some pineapple pieces dipped in some melted chocolate courtesy of the school principal and some coworkers.
Next up is where the day turned into chaos. I had to go to Walmart to purchase all of the materials needed for our Family Night tomorrow night at school. I was there about two hours pushing a cart around that was entirely too heavy. I then went back to work to unload my car on my own and deliver all of the materials to the other teachers. The worst part is I had to go back to a different Walmart this evening to get some items that the other store was out of. Needless to say, two Walmarts in one day equals not a good day.
I did snack on chips in salsa prior to the second visit to Walmart, but no picture was snapped.
Oh well, at least I did not have to worry about preparing dinner.
I enjoyed my roast over some mashed potatoes that were cooked last night with potatoes from the hubby’s garden.
To prepare them, I just mixed the boiled, tender potatoes with a container of 1/3 reduced fat onion and chive cream cheese and some milk using my handheld blender.
Well, I’m going to call it a night because I have work til 8 tomorrow night. Good night all!
