today was a nice day, wasn’t it? i’m so glad mother nature finally realized that snow in october is crazyness. tomorrow is going to be seventy degrees which means i have no excuse not to go out and get my to-do list done. and then friday night we leave for vermont. tom showed me the b&b we’re staying at and it is all sorts of adorable. i’m so excited.
anyway…back to the present. i skipped breakfast. sorry…really need to stop doing that.
for lunch i ate leftover eggplant mapo tofu in lettuce wraps.
that’s one wrap pictured. i ate more than that, obviously.
my afternoon snack was plain chobani with nature’s path cereal and a spoonful of apricot preserves. gotta get my sugar fix in.
i also ate a slice of birthday cake at some point in the day. i may have had a second sliver, but the rest is in the freezer so i can’t go crazy.
and dinner was a favorite…split pea burgers!
these are actually split pea and lentil burgers that i made with leftover homemade soup that i had in the freezer. i added some whole wheat bread crumbs, brown rice, and sauteed veggies (carrot, onion, green beans) to the drained soup and mushed it all into these delicious little patties.
if you haven’t already, you need to make your own veggie burgers…it’s so easy!
mmm! tommy claims to like these better than “real” burgers.
and OMG! speaking of that boy, guess what he brought home today!?! it’s something i’ve been searching high and low for…
ooh the suspense!
edy’s pumpkin ice cream!!! they finally have it in our stop & shop!
i’m too full for a bowl right now, but i did have a taste!
it’s everything i imagined it to be 🙂
