Yay! I have a few minutes left of my lunch break to blog today!!!
Breakfast today wasn’t what I planned, but it turned out well. I’ve been seeing people make savory oats for a while, but I hadn’t tried it yet. I wanted eggs and grits – but somehow I only had about 1 spoonful of dry grits left!
So, instead of making sweet oatmeal as usual, I tried my hand at Savory Oatmeal.
Before breaking my poached eggs (poaching courtesy of Nick this morning – and they were perfect!):
and after breaking.
Mmmm….I love the runny yolks.
For my savory oats, I used:
*1/3 cup multigrain hot cereal
* 2/3 cup water
* pinch salt
* 2 poached eggs
* ff swiss cheese stirred into cereal
Of course, the obligatory fruit
and a cup of milk.
If you’re wondering, yes I usually use the same cups in the morning. Usually always one of our Hokie cups – for some reason, I don’t like using our glasses very often. I don’t know why? I just always use these plastic Hokie cups from the football games.
Plus an unpictured cup of coffee at work – it looked the same as yesterday! Same mug and everything.
Lunch today wasn’t horrible, but it wasn’t great. I’m trying to use up leftovers – it was just a little bland, but I guess I wasn’t thinking very clearly when I woke up this morning and packed my lunch. I should have added some more seasonings or something.
Some leftover roasted chicken over bulgur:
peas, for a green
And, of course….clementines. Which I won’t put up today since they’re pictured every day!
Gotta get back to work, but I’m planning on this snack this afternoon to fuel me through running after work:
Dried Hawaiian snack mix of raisins, banana chips, papaya, coconut, dates!, and 1 Tbsp raw cashews.
Check out that big hunk o’ coconut!
See you at dinner! I’m excited for it :)
