Hey lovebugs,

Today has been a bit hectic.  Wait! No! That’s normal over here.

Business as usual, I guess.

This morning, I decided to listen to my body and slept in a few extra minutes (or a half hour but whose counting).  That meant that I had to adjust a bit but sometimes it’s worth it.  I don’t know why sleeping away the time where I usually do yoga/meditate always makes my morning more rushed.  It’s weird.

I packed a breakfast that I ate between buses.

Banana and a Pure bar.  This apple cinnamon flavor was definitely tasty but really sweet.  My jaw hurt halfway through it which was strange because it usually takes a third large brownie to do that to me.  I was hungry though so I finished it, but next time I’ll have half for a lunch dessert and be a very happy camper 🙂

Underneath my breakfast items is my to do list for the day. It goes to the other side of the page! Yowza! Thankfully, I’m checking my way through it, although I wish I could have someone else check off some of the items for me.  Anyone interested in some Computer Forensics labs? No? Oh well, I actually like it so we can still be friends 😉

Lunch really isn’t worth mentioning but I had a small pita stuffed with plain ole tuna, a blueberry yogurt and baby carrots.  Healthy? Yessir. Satisfying? Suprisingly enough, yes!

Dinner is fabulous. Mini frittatas and roasted potatoes! Mmmmm

This is beyond simple.

Mini Frittatas
serves 1
1/4 cup grated cheddar
2 eggs
hot sauce, to taste
salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 375F. Grease three muffin tins (I used whipped butter tonight but use what works for you).  Divide cheddar equally among the prepared tins.  Beat egg, add S+P and divide equally between the tins.  Bake for 10-12 minutes.

The more fun version uses sauteed mushrooms and peppers and all that deliciousness.  This is a basic recipe so play with it! The best part is that you just dump the add-ins into the tins and top with the beaten egg. Easy! (Note: If you do this you might want to fill up four tins since the bulk from the veggies will equal more little minis).

The more frugal version use whole eggs and grate your own cheese, and chop your own veggies. Use what’s on sale that week!

The faster version use eggs from a carton, pre-grated cheese and pre-chopped veggies.  Although, the hands-on time commitment is so minimal I wouldn’t choose this option.

For the roasted red potatoes.  I just quickly rinsed and chopped them, sprayed them with EVOO, sprinkled with S+P and put into three of the empty muffin tins. Remember, the smaller the chop the quicker they’ll roast and they won’t be in there long so keep that in mind!

Dinner in 20 minutes, including prep time? Dinner that only uses four dishes to prepare (muffin tin, bowl for eggs, fork/whisk, and a knife)? Dinner that I could easily make for two without any extra effort? Works for me!  Now, I just regret not making more.  I imagine that the frittatas would heat up nicely in the microwave the next day (I’d wrap it in a paper towel) so next time I’ll be doing that!

Okay, I picked posting over homework tonight- in the order of events, I’m not going to skip an assignment, of course! So… I must go off to schoolwork land. Later loves.

Wait, I forgot- I have dessert planned…

RF Cinnamon Coffee Cake from Starbucks… there may be some coffee consumed as well!  I may or may not have had a Skinny Pumpkin Spice Latte (aka Fall Crack) while there as well!
