Feed Me

When I walked in the door of my house this afternoon, I was famished. I went a solid six hours without eating anything, which is much too long for me. I definitely got to the point of cranky-hungry. Thankfully, no one was around to deal my mood.

Immediately, I started thinking about what to make for lunch. What was I craving? What was easy and quick to throw together? Leftovers? Was there any produce about to spoil? What would fill me up and keep me satisfied? Eventually, I decided on breakfast for lunch with some mixed greens on the side.

On the menu: an open-face egg and cheddar sandwich on a toasted Sandwich Thin, leftover home fries (from last night’s dinner), and mixed greens with balsamic vinegar.

After lunch, I whipped up an amazingly delicious peanut butter cookie in the microwave. Remember my 3-Minute Oatmeal Raisin Cookie? Well, this cookie is similar, but life-changing. (I’m so dramatic when it comes to cookies… and frosting.) The cookie was thick, moist, and super peanut buttery. I’m seriously debating making a second one. I loved it that much.

  1. I also get really cranky when I’m hungry…and tired. You’re not alone. Question: How do you go about shopping for fresh produce? I usually do a big shopping trip once every 3 weeks to a month. I buy fresh produce but feel rushed to use it all up in the first week or so so it doesn’t go bad. Then I’m stuck using frozen/canned veggies in the rest of my meals. Any tips on preserving produce? How you shop for it so you have it more often than not?

  2. I though your intro was hilarious! There are so many factors to consider when making a meal or a snack, even a quick one when your starving. My beau often laughs at me for this because apparently the male species doesn’t think this way…they just EAT…ah, if it were only that simple 😉

  3. You should not have shared this. I was starving mid afternoon today and decided to try the cookie. Unlike you, I did make a second one! I wanted a third, but refrained. This will be a regular for me!
