Come on Spring!

I am so sick of winter!  When I was leaving for work this morning at 7:30 it was already snowing.  It’s still knowing now, almost 13 hours later, and we have about 6 inches.  That’s more then we’ve had in the past few years.  I’m a big baby when it comes to driving in the snow, so needless to say my commute home was awful.

Atleast my food today was all delicious.

For breakfast I had “overnight oats”  I used 1/2 a cup of oats, 1/2 a cup of milk, 1 tbsp of water.  I mixed it all together with cinnamon, and vanilla extract and then popped it in the fridge until I left this morning.  Once I got to work I mixed in 1/2 mushed up banana and mixed that in the oats.  I threw it in the microwave for 1 minute 30 seconds.  It was perfect and dare I say even better then my oats Sunday morning?  No wonder you all love this so much.

Right before I ate it I mixed in 1 tbsp on pb and the last of my blueberries.

Spoiler alert: I already threw some overnight oats in the fridge and will have something super similar tomorrow.

This stuck with me all the way through to lunch.  For lunch I had a string cheese, spinach salad, and 2 clementines.

Perfect lunch!

Around 3 I had a snack of grapes and some pistachios.

As I already said my ride home was awful here are some pictures I snapped while waiting at lights.

And there’s even more now!

I had every intention of going to the gym but I was braving the roads again.  I decided to make ahead as much as I could for the rest of the week considering I was stuck at home.

Busy kitchen!

For tonight’s dinner I made Lasagna roll-ups.  I originally got the idea from The Cooking Light Cookbook.  In my roll-ups I mixed cooked green bell peppers, onions, and garlic with 1/2 a cup of ricotta.  Then put about a tablespoon of filling on the end of a lasagna noodle rolled it up and covered it with sauce, put it in the oven for 10 minutes and then sprinkled mozzarella cheese on them.

I made 8 in total but here are my 2 from dinner

I had a salad on the side as well.

Yummy dinner and I have leftovers.  I also have all my food for tomorrow packed so now it’s time for me to wait for Andrew to get home from work and then go to bed.  What a long snowy day.

Hope you’re warm if it’s snowing wherever you are!

See you tomorrow!

    That looked like my night last night too- except for the snow. The lasagna rollups look amazing. I am definitely going to make them some day.
