What I Ate: The Leftover Edition
Happy Wednesday! I thought I’d show you what I ate on Monday, since it was kind of a strange day in terms of meals. We were low on groceries but luckily, we had lots of leftovers in the fridge so I managed to find some good things to eat! It was colder than I expected when I woke up so the first thing I did was make a cup of coffee. Normally I’d have some yogurt or a smoothie but we were out of yogurt and fruit so I settled on toast. Luckily we have bread in the freezer at all times!
I had two pieces of nine grain toast with a little Kerrygold butter on top. I also had a mini pumpkin muffin right before I headed out the door for work! This breakfast hit the spot.
I was pretty busy finishing up a few projects at work, so luckily the morning flew by pretty fast. I couldn’t wait to eat lunch because I had leftovers from Lemon, my favorite local Indian restaurant. Am I the only one who counts down the minutes until it’s an appropriate time to eat lunch? Some people live for the weekends, I live for lunchtime. 😉
This was aloo gobi and rice. SO good. I can’t believe how good these leftovers were. It kept me pretty full. I worked a little later than normal, so around 5:30, I snacked on half a quest bar at my desk that I had saved from the Natural Products Expo. Thank goodness I had it! Normally we eat dinner pretty early but I went to Gym Quest for a workout.
I didn’t get home until after 8, so I was thankful for the Kuba Kuba leftovers that were in our fridge. (Yes, it’s the Kuba Kuba from my mug of coffee. Can you tell I’m obsessed?) We have dinner with a group of 3rd-6th graders at church every other week and we got to take home the leftover rice & beans. We had these with a few tortilla chips and salsa. It was so nice not having to make dinner when I got home!
I’m actually a huge fan of leftovers. It definitely makes life easier. If you don’t love them as much as I do, check out this post for ideas of how to reuse leftovers!
Do you eat a lot of leftovers?
