WIAW: Working Girl
Good morning! It’s an especially good one today because I made the decision to take the day off from running today (my legs are TIRED!), so while Joey was up early getting ready to run 8.5 miles, I was still off in dreamland. And now I’m about to head off for a massage. I live a hard life.
Yesterday was an odd Tuesday because I worked (I almost always have Tuesday off), so you get to see what I pack when I bring dinner to work. I know, exciting stuff.
Let’s get to it.
And this is your friendly little reminder to go thank Jenn, the host of our weekly WIAW party. Thanks, Jenn!
Despite what Joey says, this is not “just a date” — it’s a maple almond butter-filled date. Duh.
Aka my favorite meal of the day.
Peaches and cream sounds innocent, right? Uh yeah, the “cream” I’m talking about is Bailey’s Irish Cream.
And alcohol is totally acceptable before 5 PM, if it’s cooked into oatmeal.
I’m obsessed with this smoothie.
Except I use buckwheat flour instead of oatmeal and cocoa powder instead of carob and an un-frozen banana.
Basically, I change everything that would require ahead-of-time-planning.
Perfect for in the car, late to work enjoyment.
P.S. Did you know chocolate and cheese go well together?
Which means this smoothie is best served alongside a piece of leftover margherita pizza.
I’d like to pretend I had any part in cooking this dinner.
But it was all “J Dogs.”
And Mama Pea.
And it was delicious.
That we de-veganized by adding real sausage.
Shh, don’t tell.
And I’d like to pretend it looked all nice like that, but really, it looked like this.
I usually snack at work between lunch and dinner but that pizza/smoothie combo was super filling! So snack was held off until I got home from work (I got sent home early, woo-hoo!).
Unpictured half a piece of pumpkin bread. I dropped the first half on the carpet…
And actually screamed, “Nooo!” when I did it. Luckily, the other half was safe and eatable.
Off to my massage, smoothie in hand!
Do smoothies hold you over as meals?
Do you ever have to bring meals to work/school?
