Meals in the New Year
It’s sort of hard to believe that we’re only a couple weeks into the New Year, because it feels like January has been running on for a while. Maybe it’s just because we all seem to hit the ground running! We’ve tackled a few more house projects recently. We finally got blinds hung in the living room (seriously, I’m embarrassed at how difficult it was to get these blinds sized correctly) and I ordered a new sofa which should arrive next week! I can’t wait to show you pictures when it’s here!
Anyways, the weather has been pretty chilly, but I’m still enjoying yogurt, blueberries, and granola in the morning.
My parents got us a subscription to the New York Times so Sunday was spent reading the paper under the blankets, drinking coffee. It’s seriously the best way to spend a chilly morning!
I spent the later part of the morning playing around in the kitchen and prepping a batch of garlic lentil soup to pack in my lunch. Maybe it was the lack of protein in my breakfast, but my stomach was grumbling by 11:30. I decided to use up the leftover pesto in the fridge and make some fancy grilled cheese sandwiches.
Mozzarella + Pesto grilled cheese with tomato soup. Such a classic comfort food combination!
Alex had to do some work in the afternoon so I made a run to Target (I know, such a sacrifice) and picked up a few (more) things for the house. Then we went to church in the afternoon and headed straight to my brother’s house afterwards. We picked up Chinese food on the way and I had some vegetable fried rice for dinner.
I’m normally not a huge fan of Chinese food, but I actually really enjoyed this. It’s also not very photogenic, but it tasted better than it looks! Even though I ate quite a bit of rice, my sweet tooth got the better of me when we got home, so I did have one of these healthy cookie dough bites for dessert!
It certainly wasn’t the healthiest day of meals (lots of carbs and not exactly a lot of protein) but everything was delicious! Sometimes you just have to eat what you’re craving!
