Friday for Me!

I won’t be at work tomorrow because of my secret appointment that I have not mentioned yet, so today is my Friday. Well, almost like Friday but without the jeans.

Do you ever just wake up and feel hollow because you’re so hungry? I just felt like I had nothing in me at all, and my tummy was yelling at me to feed it! Of course, I listened.

I had another bowl of Berry Bananaza


  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 cup water
  • pinch salt
  • 1/2 banana, sliced
  • 4 strawberries, sliced
  • palmful of blueberries and raspberries
  • cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp sliced almonds


And instead of just a cup of skim milk, I had a monster glass of chocolate milk  :)


Sometimes you just need chocolate milk, and today was one of those days. And YES, I like my chocolate milk very chocolat-y.

I had a cup of coffee at work – I usually have this every day, but I usually use the same mug so I don’t take a picture of it every day.



Lunch today is….leftovers!  Surprised?  No?  :)


Some of my one-pot wonder


mixed steamed veggies


and an apple!

I have a good snack planned for this afternoon, and I’m hoping to go running after work outside if it’s still nice.

Do you like leftovers?

Obviously I do!  I mainly just don’t want to waste food, but I don’t want to make a meal every single night, either. Plus, I think leftovers make some of the best lunches and I can freeze them for later when we’re running low on everything else.


  1. Cute mug!

    I’m a big fan of leftovers. They make meal prep really easy. Also, a lot of things taste better the next day. Oddly enough, I am not a fan of leftovers from restaurants. Just not the same somehow!

  2. I’m a huge fan of them and create them on purpose on a regular basis. For example, today I roasted some chicken breasts in parchment paper. I wanted to turn some of the chicken into chicken salad. The rest will get tossed into a soup for a little extra protein, tossed on a sandwich or mixed into a stir fry. I also love making big batches of things on the weekend that are very basic so that I can just sort of embellish in order to change things up as the week moves along. I’d be lost without my leftovers!

    I never drink chocolate milk, but I think I may have to have some. Yours looks so good. It always reminds me of being a kid. :-)

  3. Leftovers rock! :D

    What a cute mug “I Love Lucy” mug!

  4. I love leftovers, but I’m the only one in my house that does… so I end up eating a lot of the same things.

  5. I just found your blog today and I’m enjoying it very much! Lots of beautiful pictures and yummy looking recipes, what more can I ask for? :D

    I’d love for you to check out my cooking and bento blog when you get a chance:

    Oh and to answer your question, I love leftovers and am willing to eat them several days in a row if they’re good.

  6. love love love leftovers, especially because i hate hate hate food waste!

    your berry bonanza bowl from this morning is gorgeousssssss. looks like the perfect consistency!

  7. Grill marks look great, it looked good, we had chicken, good luck tomorrow, call and let us know how it went

    Love ya,

    • Will do Mom and Dad :) Thanks!

      I’m glad so many people like leftovers! I feel bad sometimes for posting the same pictures over again!
