I love that Matt works at home and I’m in and out of the house all day long. Being a full-time student who has some odd jobs means that we get to spend (usually!) more time together then most couples. It also means that I get to make his lunch and we often get to eat together!
When I got home from class I did a little bit of office work for Matt and then I made a killer lunch.
How can you go wrong with sausage + Buffalo Bleu chips?
I piled two salads on top of leafy greens. They had:
- Dried cranberries
- Crumbled feta
- Sliced al fresco sausage
- Mini sweet peppers
- Drizzle of Ken’s Italian
It was crispy and fresh and one of the best at-home salads I’ve had in a long time.
Plus, we had chips on the side. Salad + chips = a balanced diet.
After our late lunch I did a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Then I headed to a Self Guided Class over at Tree House Yoga. I spent an hour or so breaking down
When I got back I was physically and mentally exhausted and I considered eating a bag of chocolate chips for dinner.
But instead I made a quick, easy, healthy meal.
Lemony Lentils with Sugar Snap Peas
- 1 c pre-cooked lentils of any kind
- 1/2 c stock
- 1 tbsp chopped garlic
- 1/2 lemon
- 1/4 c crumbled feta
- sugar snap peas
- Seasonings: Salt and pepper
- How: Bring lentils, stock, and garlic to a boil. Add juice and zest of half a lemon, along with peas. When heated thoroughly add feta, salt, and pepper and serve.
- Notes: I used Trader Joe’s Black Beluga Lentils & a bag of microwavable sugar snap peas – basically I took all the work out! Asparagus would be a great substitute for the sugar snap peas. I intended to use it, but it was $7 a bunch at the market!
I’m glad I saved the chocolate chips for dessert!
