boring

The sun is shining today!!!  Doesn’t that just instantly put you in a good mood?!  For me, it definitely does. 🙂

I’m not going to lie, my last few meals have been super duper B-O-R-I-N-G!!!  I’ll whiz right through them so that I don’t bore you.

Lunch yesterday consisted of leftover Quinoa from the other night.

It was a mix of quinoa, lemon juice, salt, pepper,dried thyme, chopped walnuts, raisins and goat cheese sprinkled on top.  This is usually my go-to mix because it is simple and very tasty.

Served along with vanilla yogurt, granola and a kiwi!

I definitely didn’t finish everything.  This was a filling combo.

Dinner was more leftovers – 13 Bean Chili Leftovers!

This time, I topped my chili with some plain yogurt and parm cheese to cut the spice a bit.  It helped!  But, my mouth was still burning by the end – good thing I love spicy food.

I also spread a whole wheat wrap with a little butter and sprinkled it with parm cheese.  Then, stuck it in the toaster oven until bubbly and crispy.  Just cut them into whatever shape you like and you have homemade pita chips.  I buy Whole Foods brand pita bread because there are only about 3 or 4 ingredients in them.  These are one of my favorite things to make!

We sure did have a tired pup last night. 🙂

He loves to snuggle!

Breakfast this morning was Banana Oatmeal.

I cooked 1/2 cup rolled oats (which are not nearly as good as steel-cut oats!) with 1 tbsp of ground flaxmeal and 1 small banana.

Then, topped my oats with banana chips (unsweetened), 1/2 tbsp chunky peanut butter, and 1/2 tbsp homemade pistachio butter.

I love oatmeal.

I apologize for having some boring eats over the next few days as I try to eat through my crazy amount of food in my fridge and pantry.  I have weeks where all I want to do is make something new and fun everynight of the week.  Then, I have weeks where I don’t really feel like cooking.  Well, this has been one of those weeks.  And, my cabinets and fridge are so packed with homemade goodies that I have made over the past month (nut butters, granola, granola bars, chili, chickpeas, etc) that I need to start mission ‘eat it up’!  So, bear with me. 🙂
