This morning began with the classic stylings of a good ol’ cereal breakfast…
Kellogg’s Special K lowfat granola + organic skim milk + banana makes for a no-fail cereal combo. Topped off with a cup of coffee (w/ milk), I was definitely wanting more cereal AND coffee. AND sleep, for that matter.
Work was crazytown. All day.
Hence, that is why I grabbed and ate these mini-meals throughout the day when I had the chance.
I believe an orange + 4 coffee Nibs candies were enjoyed sometime amidst the chaos this afternoon.
When I got home, I wanted to eat everything in sight, including the bottle of olive oil and ground coffee sitting on my counter. Instead, I relied on two cups of coffee + a stellar wrap to tide me over until my very special 8:30pm dinner date.
1 La Tortilla whole grain wrap
1 tbsp. almond butter
1 tbsp. raspberry jelly
sprinkle of cinnamon
1 tbsp. carob chips
It was microwaved for 45 seconds until melty and delish, then devoured in about 45 seconds.
At 8:20pm, I hopped in Blue Betty (a.k.a. my car) and jetted off to….HARVEST!!!
What’s so special about Harvest, you ask?
These lovely ladies! (And a gourmet meal for cheap, thanks to Madison Restaurant Week!)
Food bloggers + local, organic restaurant + $25, 3-course meal = TRUE LOVE.
Or TRUE CRAZINESS. Whichever you prefer ;).
I apologize for the crappy pics (dim lighting) and frizzy hair (can’t control the ‘fro) in advance.
This restaurant specializes in contemporary, local and organic food. Ding ding, we have a winner! We started things off with some bread n’ buttah…
…continued on with some curried pumpkin soup…
…followed up with the main course of lentil and mushroom shepherd’s pie…
…and all topped off with cinnamon ice cream! (!!!!)
And yes, for the record, we are already planning on doing it again :).
With that, it is 11:18pm and wayyyyyyy past this gal’s bedtime. If you haven’t already, don’t forget to enter my giveaway for a single serve blender + frozen fruit coupons!
Do you prefer eating a square 3 meals per day or spacing it out mini-meal style? Depends on the day for me – sometimes its square meals, sometimes its mini meals!
To all you readers + bloggers, have you had a bloggy meet-up yet? Besides tonight, you know me and my girl Angharad like to hang!
