I have a hot date with my couch and Parks and Rec in a little bit since it’s LITERALLY my favorite show on TV right now, so I’m going to whiz right through this post.
A few hours after breakfast, my stomach started to grumble, so I threw together a quick snack of carrot sticks, Wheat Thins, and garlic hummus. Such a good snack. Honestly, is there anything better than Wheat Thins and hummus together?
Shortly after eating my snack, I packed a lunch to take with me to NuVal. I spent a few hours there, worked, and ate my lunch, which included some roasted Brussels sprouts, vanilla Chobani, and Uncle Sam cereal to mix into the yogurt.
I also enjoyed some hot cocoa while I was at NuVal. I like my cocoa really chocolate-y, so I always use less water than instructed. I know, I’m so crazy.
After NuVal, I headed home. The second I walked into my house, I walked straight into the kitchen and snacked on some pistachios.
And then cooked some squash.
And took Murphy for a walk with Mal.
Tonight’s dinner included some meatless meatballs, which were just okay. I’ve never really been a fan of meatless “meat” items, but Gardein and all of their delicious products changed my mind about them, so I gave Veggie Patch a try. Who knows, maybe I’d like it?
Flavor-wise, these “meatballs” were pretty bland, but, texture-wise, they were almost like real meatballs.
Nutritionally, they looked pretty good.
But, ingredient-wise… not so much.
I like to try new foods, so I’m glad I gave these a whirl, but I’m not sure I’d buy them again. It seems that meatless “meats” and I just don’t get along.
I added the meatless meatballs to a big bowl of spaghetti squash with sautéed mushrooms, marinara sauce, and shredded Romano cheese sprinkled on top.
After dinner, I ate a couple of frozen cookie dough balls for dessert.
Apparently, the wresting team at Mal’s school was selling these as part of a fundraiser, so he bought one for us. It’s a win-win in my book!
And just for fun…
Would you rather eat a ball of chocolate chip cookie dough or an actual (cooked) chocolate chip cookie?
