In a Bowl

In a hurry (the snow arrived, really slick roads this morning) to get out the door for a longer commute, and I didn't have time to eat breakfast. Luckily, the staff room had stashed plain instant oatmeal and peanut butter.
 Cornbread and Beefless Beef Stew for lunch:
 My cute pink ceramic tumbler broke, so I bought a new one over the weekend. I've enjoyed both coffee and tea in it.
 Spaghetti with Nate's Meatless Meatballs for dinner.
No green today, for some reason when it snows that seems to happen. Hmm. . .

  1. That's a cute new cup! I didn't know they made them ceramic like that.
    You must be pretty happy there was food at work - what would you have done otherwise?? That would really drive me crazy. I usually OVERprepare just to make sure I have enough food to last the day, haha.

    1. It's my favorite way to enjoy hot beverages: it keeps them warmer and is cuter than a travel mug. Ha!

      Otherwise, I would not have had breakfast. I was mad at myself for not being prepared, believe me! Once I arrived I realized what we had, and moved into action!

  2. Ahhh I love your new cup! How perfect that it has little bikes all over it! So adorable. My drinkware obsession has returned haha. How great that you were able to put a breakfast together with what you could find at work. I feel like that would be tough in most places! Lunch and dinner look so warm and comforting. This snow nonsense is annoying me already and it's only November. Not a good sign for what's to come haha!

    1. I love it, it's so cute! I say the same bicycle pattern on a mug, but it was plain with just one big bike, flowers in its basket. I absolutely lucked out with my breakfast find, and I won't count on it being there in the future! I'm okay with snow, but it's the bitter cold (single digits overnight that last few nights!) and ice that I don't care for at all. It's supposed to get better by Tuesday, so I'm wearing layers and a blanket over my legs and feet as I type this! Ha!

  3. Snow??? Yikes! Glad the breakroom had some non-scary breakfast for you, i can't function without something within an hour or so of getting up so i would have been late to be sure i at least grabbed something! Lunch and dinner are perfect snowy day meals- i'm sure you will fond something green to eat before long.

    1. Yogi Teas are great! This is their Kombucha variety. I can't remember now what it said, but I definitely look at the sayings. :)

      Oh yes, snow usually arrives in Colorado in October (which it did), but regardless of the month it usually burns off within a week or faster. 300 days of sunshine a year really come in handy! Ha ha!

      I know, I really chanced it by leaving the house on an empty stomach. I should have set my alarm for an earlier rising!

  4. Really cute tumbler! I love the colors in it. :)

    We had spaghetti and meatballs the other night. It really hit the spot! We also got some snow overnight which was preceded by rain, so the roads are going to be slick this morning. Do you have a long commute?

    1. They had the same tumbler in different colors, but I was definitely drawn to this color!

      It makes sense that you had a similar storm the following evening! I normally have a 12 minute commute, but this was more like 25 minutes. We were inching along!

  5. Echoing FF's query: How bad would it have to get for you to hit up the school cafeteria? Great looking stew and 'getti.

    1. This is my ninth year teaching, and I have never eaten a school lunch. Not only does it look bad, but a few years ago and friend/colleague ate a sandwich from the cafeteria which gave her food poisoning - she fainted and broke her jaw. As if I needed another reason to not eat there. . .

      P.S. My principal "loves" us with food, so there is always "back up" available, and every condiment your heart could desire (minus vegan mayo) in the communal fridge. ;)

    2. AHHhhh!! Food poisoning PLUS a broken jaw! That's horrible! Did she get worker's comp for that??? Omg! How do the kids even eat there??

    3. She did go through the comp process, and said it was almost as ridiculous as fainting from a cafeteria sandwich. I don't know how the kids eat it, it really is a sad state of affairs.
