I'm all about leftovers. I don't mind making a big meal on Sunday, then having whats left for lunch during the week. I'm also a creature of habit, usually when it comes to breakfast.
I went through a cereal phase, an oatmeal phase, a yogurt phase, and a smoothie phase. Now I'm back to oatmeal, and the smoothie is now an afternoon snack. I used to eat that flavored oatmeal that comes in individual packets, but now I'm trying to be mindful of my sugar intake, since it's pretty much in everything, so now I make my own, on the stove top.
This is my latest favorite brand:
I cook it so it comes out sort of al dente, and I mix in cinnamon, slivered almonds, and dried cherries. It's a tasty combo:
I love soups and stews in the winter. Back in my days of working in an office, I ate canned soup for the convenience of it. But so many of them are loaded with sodium, so I'd rather make my own, and control what goes into it.
Sunday we had a stew made with veggies and venison, which is really lean. I can only eat venison if it's in chili or stew. I love peas in stew, the trick is to add them at the end of cooking so they don't get mushy.
Is it lunchtime yet?
