Massage it Out Monday

When cold cereal is on sale for less than $2 a box, you buy it.  Quaker Oatmeal Squares with almond milk.
Yesterday I made chili in the crockpot - so another serving joined me for lunch:
Kidney beans, yellow bell pepper, onion, tomatoes, chili powder.
Some unsalted saltines on the side:
A small ramekin of pistachios before heading out for a massage.
Relaxed and hungry: broccoli and spaghetti for dinner.
A healthy amount of veggies today, but missing my leafy greens.  They are on the agenda for tomorrow!  

See you soon!

  1. Definitely did a great job with the veggies this week! The cereal isn't gluten free but I have actually tried it before because I was curious and I thought it was really good! Your chili looks nice and thick and I love that you put it in a mason jar. Dinner looks good, I don't eat a lot of pasta but when I do I like to eat it with broccoli :)

    Jealous of your massage! Glad you got to relax!

    1. Every time I get a massage, I tell myself that I won't go so long in between sessions. Ha! I hope to be better to my body on a regular basis.

      I briefly considered adding the broccoli while I tossed the pasta, but figured it would look weird. Maybe not? ;)

  2. Cereal is so incredibly expensive! That's another reason I don't eat it often. Glad you got a good deal on it.
    I've never been able to make a good chili. Yrs sounds interesting, with the yellow pepper. Have you ever had Cincinnati chili? It's served on spaghetti, so you almost had it...but in two separate servings.

    1. Yes, exactly! That's why when I was pondering what cereal to pick up - I saw the $1.97 price and said, "that's the one". Ha ha!

      I have heard of Cincinnati Chili! I totally should have done that!!

  3. That's a great sale on the cereal! I cringe whenever we buy some because of the price. Ridiculous how expensive it can be.

    It's a great time of year for chili. Mike could eat it every day. :)

    1. It is expensive. I need to follow Shen's example and get to Big Lots and their cereal aisle.

      I have only a mini crockpot - so it handles three servings. Just enough to not get sick of it. :)

  4. Excellent food day. Unsalted Saltines sound really good.

    1. I break up the unsalted saltines on top of the chili, or put a spoonful on a cracker. Great either way!

  5. Less than $2 for a box of name-brand cereal?! Wow! I love that you put your chili in a jar. There is something so appealing about putting your own homemade food in a jar to make it portable. Dinner looks simple but delicious. I've had some leafy greens lately, but now I'm craving broccoli!

    1. I know, right? Crazy inexpensive. I have so much affection for mason jars, and they are so great for transporting any and all kinds of food!

  6. Chilli's one of those magical dishes that you can put pretty much anything in and know it will still taste good. Pinto beans and kidneys all the way.

    Unsalted saltines? Wouldn't they just be ines?!
