Hi to my favorite blog readers! It's time to recap what I've been eating.
Brought to you by Peas & Crayons
Well, I decided that my Tuesday food recaps were looking too similar. So, I thought I'd shake things up and document my Monday eats for this week :)
Before I get to all that, I was thinking about how I told two of my sweet & beautiful friends about how the name of the blog came to life.
And you know what? I don't think I ever actually shared it on the blog before!
So, when I get hungry, I get super cranky. Everyone close to me knows to stay out of my way or throw some crackers at me if I haven't eaten in several hours. Maybe I'm dramatizing a bit... But, my husband refers to my hangry (hungry + angry) moods as The Hungry Monster. And when I might snap at him about something silly, he knows that it is the hungry monster attacking. Hence the name: Attack of the Hungry Monster!
Cool story, bro?
Ok, let's move on.
Breakfast: Cereal & Fruit
Words cannot express my love for Quaker Oatmeal Squares cereal. If I had to put it into words, it would be, "nom nom nom." Which is really gibberish, but it means I like them alot. I topped this bowl with half a banana and a couple sliced strawberries, followed by some almond milk. I also had some coffee.
Mid Morning Snack: Nuts & Fruit
For snack I had a sliced apple and some roasted almonds. I just plopped my snack right in the middle of all my work stuff. When snack time arrives, everything else waits ;) I also had a mug of green tea.
Lunch: Greek Salad Sandwich & Melon
10 years ago I would have laughed in your face (apparently I was rude 10 years ago) if you had told me I would get full from a sandwich with no meat. But this sandwich is super duper filling and packed with flavor (not to mention, nutrients). Here's the run down:
Greek Salad Sandwich
Fresh spinach (or romaine lettuce)
Red pepper relish
Crumbled feta cheese
I enjoyed some delicious watermelon on the side.
Afternoon Snack: Yogurt & Granola
It kills me that I took a picture with the Chobani label upside down. OCD alert! Anyways, I enjoyed a lovely snack of yogurt with the last dregs of my granola before leaving work to hold me over til dinner time.
Dinner: Meat & Potatoes
It was a great day to fire up the grill, so I threw some sirloin steak (which was a little too done for me, but perfect for my husband) and asparagus on the grill. I also made some light, garlic mashed potatoes. Thank God I only made enough for me and my husband, because I seriously could have eaten an entire plate of these potatoes.
Dessert: Fro Yo Cone
Can you tell I love fro yo? I like this brand that our Kroger has started carrying. The cookies & cream is the best! I had a lil' sugar cone full of it.
Ok, I am going to try and get a craft together for Friday's post. Fingers crossed that it turns out good ;)
Baby & Boscoe told me I need to put a picture of them on the blog:
my little loves ;)
