This Honduran craziness makes my tummy so strange. I’ve felt hungry all day, but not much actually sounds good. I’ve eaten, but still just feel empty? It’s very strange.
I got all my work done today! Mondays are my busiest day at work, and I was wondering how today would go with the teleworking. The set-up we used worked great! It was a bit slow, but other than that, I think it will work fine if they really do start supporting this more often.
To quiet the tummy rumbling this afternoon, I had a snack.
Oikos and Fage were both on sale this weekend! Wahoo! I crumbled up one of my blueberry chia muffins into a plain oikos and ate that while working. I love having baked goods crumbled in yogurt – the different textures and the sweet/tart combination always makes me happy.
I really wanted to have an even bigger snack that this, but I didn’t want to ruin my appetite since Nick came home at lunch. Because we were both already at home, I knew dinner would be earlier than normal, and I was right!
Nick asked for a big salad tonight and since that actually sounded good to him, I pushed tonight’s dinner plans to tomorrow and put together a big salad spread.
- hard boiled egg
- yellow tomato
- black olives
- a tiny bit of crumbled bacon
- homemade avocado dressing, which was thick but really good
Nick added beer butt chicken to his, but I just wasn’t feelin’ that since I had some at lunch.
The avocado dressing just had
- about 1/2 of that huge avocado I opened up today
- the juice from 1/2 a lemon
- garlic powder
- 1-2 tsp canola oil
Whir it all up in the food processor or blender until creamy. You could add more liquid or something like mayo/yogurt to make it thinner. I liked the overall texture and once I mixed my salad together, it coated everything nicely.
I also made me some more “garlic bread” on a hot dog bun. Nick went and got himself a little loaf of french bread, but I know he’ll want more the next 2 nights with dinner so I let him have that and just made one of these for me. I just split the hot dog bun, spread on a little olive oil spread, sprinkled on some garlic salt + parsley and toasted in the toaster oven. Perfect!
I just finished packing up my lunch for tomorrow and doing some other things I needed to do (cut celery, freeze a package of chicken, make bean dish for lunches, etc) and now all that’s left is to make the bed, prep breakfast, and have a snack!
My stomach already feels empty again. I know it may be because I had 2 salads today, but this hunger is just ridiculous. I’m hoping we both get back to normal in the next day or two.
I have a feeling a bowl of my microwave popcorn is going to appear tonight :)
Is there a food that always makes you full/satisfied when you have it? I feel like nothing is working today, but it may just be this weirdness.
