Frozen Lunch

Man, I’m so glad it’s Thursday. I’m ready for the weekend, but now am just hoping that this cold goes away soon :(  We have some fun plans this weekend, and I don’t want to be sick for them.

I worked through the morning, but a storm is coming through and we’re supposed to have freezing rain/sleet for the rest of the afternoon and evening – my boss was nice enough to close the office for the afternoon, so I can just rest now!

It started raining at the house about an hour ago, and I can already see ice crystals on our deck. I just hope it doesn’t get too bad!

With the afternoon off, I have a feeling I’m going to be doing some serious napping + cuddling with Maggie.


It took me so long to decide on lunch. Honestly, I didn’t really want anything because I can’t taste anything so no foods really sound good to me.

But I remembered I had some brussel sprouts I needed to cook (or throw away), so I roasted them with some cremini mushrooms.


While those were cooking, I heated up the last of the whole grain rice mix from the other night and cooked 2 eggs.


Really – rice + eggs are so good together! I guess that’s why I like fried rice, but it’s even better with a runny yolk.


Then I topped the eggs, rice, and brussel/mushroom mixture with some salt, garlic, and crushed red pepper so I could REALLY taste everything.

It turned out to be a good lunch, and really filling.


Off to take it easy + rest with the pup!
