Happy What I Ate Wednesday & National Running Day! I celebrated the later by running 2 miles without stopping (except for a quick water break). This was the farthest distance I’ve ran non-stop, so yay me! 😉
Today was sort of a WIAW fail for me; I only snapped a few pictures throughout the day. If you want to check out what other bloggers are eating (they probably documented their eats better than I did mine!) head on over to Peas & Crayons.
Breakfast – Overnight oats with coffee
Today’s mix-ins were strawberries (so good!), walnuts, almond butter, a dash of vanilla, & a sprinkle of cinnamon – a winning combination!
Lunch – 6 inch turkey sandwich on wheat from Subway
Tuesday, today, & tomorrow are all “final days” at school. That means the kids are there in the morning taking finals (only 1 more to give!), but the teachers still have to work full days. The upside to this is that we get extended time for lunch – much better than our usually 20 minutes. Since Chris works second shift & I don’t get to chat with him much during the week, we used this as a chance to meet up for a mid-week lunch date. I went with my usual turkey sandwich, which I topped with provolone, spinach, & cucumbers (I always keep my sandwiches relatively plain).
Dinner – Undone stuffed pepper casserole
This recipe is a staple in our household. I cut the green pepper a little bit larger than usual which added a new texture that I really liked.
Dessert – Oreo brownie
Tomorrow, we’re having a little celebration at work for two teachers who are retiring. Since I knew I wouldn’t have time to make anything from scratch in the middle of the work week, I went with one of my go-to, easy dessert recipes. Boxed brownie mix + vanilla frosting + crushed Oreos! It’s seriously so good & so easy; perfect in a pinch! Of course, I had to taste-test before I could serve them to others. 😉
That’s all folks! I promise, I’ll be better with my pictures next week, especially since I’ll be on summer break!
Have you ever “spruced up” a box-mix dessert?
