Last night I got home from work and spent about 30 minutes cutting up five pounds of carrots. I buy the 10 pound bags at Costco that need need to be peeled and cut because I am too cheap to buy the baby carrots. I’ve also had some issues with the baby carrots being mushy compared to the ten pound bags that seemingly last forever. It doesn’t usually take me that long to cut the carrots up and put into containers but for some reason, this bag had unusually small and skinny carrots so there were so many more to do!
After I got the carrots cut up, I got to work on preparing dinner. When we went to Costco this weekend I found these chicken burgers that we used to get all of the time but Costco had stopped stocking… well, they’re back! I was so excited to see not only were they back (I think the last time I bought them was three years ago) but they had an instant rebate worth $3. So, of course we stocked up!
And, I almost forgot how good they were! We both definitely enjoyed these last night… we had some veggies and baked potatoes to go with them and it made for a very good meal. I am definitely getting better with my timing so that everything is ready at approximately the same time and nothing is too cold when we go to eat it. Now, I need to starting using my good camera instead of my iPhone so that it actually looks a bit more appetizing than these pictures make it appear.
After eating dinner and prepping veggies for the rest of the week, I got to work creating my bag of food to take into work. I’ve added some snacks this week to increase the calories that I eat during the day. I am hoping that this will help me snack a bit less at night. It will be interesting to see / feel how this works out this week.
Once I was finished with all of that – I was able to veg out for an hour or so in front of the tv. And, I might have had a snack or two while doing that. :)
