This afternoon may prove to be pretty crazy for a Monday – apparently, our system at work has run out of space! They’re working on it, but it’s a good thing I have my other normal Monday tasks to keep me busy in case it takes a while to fix.
My breakfast cookie held me over really well! I do like having some cold breakfast options that are filling, especially when it’s warm in the house and hot outside.
I was really looking forward to lunch today and it proved to be a good one.
I made a big batch of a tex-mex barley salad yesterday so I could have that for lunches this week with different add – ins and toppings.
The barley salad is just 1 cup of quick cooking barley cooked with chili powder, cumin, garlic, and a little cayenne. Then I mixed in a can of drained/rinsed black beans, corn, and diced tomatoes. Easy! and it made a LOT.
This morning, I added a little rotisserie chicken and then topped it with some avocado for lunch. I love avocado so much! I should have some everyday.
I also brought some steamed broccoli for a little more green
Plus an apple for some crunch
I love making a big batch of something on the weekends for lunch options – it makes easy to pack something quickly if you don’t have other leftovers or don’t want a sandwich.
Do you make stuff specifically for lunches during the week?
I have to, to keep my sanity during the week. Since I have to eat at work every day, I need to have quick options in the fridge and know that there will at least be something easy to grab!
I guess I missed it with all the anniversary festivites, but check out my guest post on KERF! I should make those again…
