Thursday is turning into Friday and vice versa.

I usually work from home on Thursdays, but have switched up the days because of some plans tomorrow night, so I’m going into the office for the afternoon to get a few things done and will be working from home tomorrow. That should be a fun way to end the week :)

Before I make the drive in, I figured I would go ahead and eat my lunch at home.


We still have about 3-4 servings left of the mac’n’cheese with veggies and ham from the other night, so I heated up a bowl full for lunch.


The weather today is seriously gross. It’s gray, pouring down rain, and the ground is sloppy and soggy. Not a pretty fall day at all!

This bowl of warm, comforting macaroni was just what I wanted.


For some extra veggies, I had a side salad that I prepped last night while I was making my dinner salad. So much easier than having to chop everything at lunch today! The salad was waiting for me, and all I had to do was add a little dressing.

Time for me to finish eating, change clothes, and make the rainy drive into work.

PS: The house smells like peanut butter. You’ll see why tomorrow ;) It’s probably a good thing I WON’T be in the house the rest of the day…

What tips do you use to prep for meals? Do you pack your lunch/breakfast the night before? Cut up a bunch of veggies on the weekend? Freeze meals for easy weeknight meals?

List them here! I love getting new tips that help keep me organized.

    I also prep meals ahead of time! I prepare any “cooked” lunches on the weekends, and a few dinners too. Then the night before I ALWAYS pack my lunch – such a time saver!

    I always pack my breakfast and lunch the night before. It saves me a bunch of time in the morning, but the bummer is, a lot of the time I’m not wanting what I packed. I usually eat it anyways though!

    I can’t wait to see what is making your house smell like my favorite food ever. :)

    I prep and package all our produce on the weekend for the upcoming week so that it is ready for any creation we feel like making. I wish I had lunch inspiration at night so that I didn’t have to make lunch the morning of, but such is life. ;)

    Excited to hear about a peanut butter dish!

    I like to cut up extra veggies if I’m already at it…especially with onions. I also love to menu plan based on my schedule for the day.

    And cooking grains ahead is huge. I cook a bunch of quinoa and use it throughout the week instead of making it each day.

    The basis for my weekday lunches is brown rice, so I keep a container of the stuff already cooked. Then when I am in the kitchen making dinner, I just throw together brown rice and whatever else is there and it is done! :)

    With the apetite my boyfriend has, there are rarely left overs. Sad, but true.

    Somehow we never have leftovers at my house – 8 housemates ensures that. I feel robbed :)
    I tend to process tons of veggies from the garden or what have you all at once – chopping, dicing, freezing, so meals are a lot easier to make over the course of the week.
