Sunday’s Meals

Hello from Las Vegas! I’m here for a work conference until Thursday and it’s been interesting seeing the city.  I’d never been before and it’s been an action packed adventure so far. Sadly, I didn’t bring my camera with me since I had a million other things to bring and I knew it would be a little tricky to pull out my DSLR on a work trip. So I captured Sundays meals to show you a complete day of eats and link up with Jenn. Cool? Cool. (Don’t worry, you can see see my Vegas adventures on Instagram.)

Sunday was a pretty relaxing day, as it usually is. I took a little walk to pick up the New York Times and when I came home I fixed myself a little breakfast to eat while skimming the paper.


I had picked up of a box of Peanut Butter Puffin cereal at the grocery store which I haven’t done for probably a year. Now I remember why… I basically ate half the box in two days. Oops. How is it so delicious?! Why are cereal servings so small? Why am I never full from it?! Actually, I know the answer to all of those questions: it’s not really that healthy of a food. Oh well. It tasted awesome.

After breakfast, I went to gymnastics and got a good workout while tumbling. My calf muscles were definitely sore on Monday!


When I got home, I heated up some leftover’s from Saturday’s beer dinner.

Lunch Channa Masala This stuff reheats really well! I also had a few bites of garlic naan… which is probably my favorite part of having Indian food.

Alex and I headed to church and I got to hang out with the kids in children’s worship. So much cuteness. On my way home I stopped by the grocery store to pick up a bag of salad since my body was craving some leafy greens.

dinner taco salad These came together quite easily. I just topped the bagged lettuce with some seasoned black beans, roasted corn, tomato salsa, and guacamole. Eaten with some Food Should Taste Good multigrain chips because those things are delicious.

After dinner, we had a little ice cream while watching TV. I usually have a little something sweet in the evening, even if it’s just a piece of chocolate. (Although sometimes I skip dessert in favor of wine…)

What’s your favorite late night dessert?
