i don't like mondays

Today was okay. But in general, yeah, I don’t like Mondays.

Didn’t blog last night because I was lame and didn’t take any food photos again! I went to lunch with at a place I’ve never been before that gets good reviews – and the food was really, really boring. Too boring to even talk about.

Then I went to my parents’ house for the whole afternoon as my brother and his wife and kids were in town. My dad made a delicious pork roast. It was a fun day.

Today I didn’t eat before class. Went to Target and Trader Joe’s after class, so I was pretty hungry by the time I got home. I bought a Soychorizo breakfast burrito at TJ’s – they’re in the deli/sandwich refrigerated section.

Here’s a shot of the nutritional info in case anyone is interested:

As I was cutting the wrapper off, I accidentally sliced into the burrito with my kitchen shears, so you get a nice clean look into the contents after I heated it up in the microwave, lol.

It was really quite good. Flavorful, but not spicy (I’m kind of wussy about spicy food). It would be easy to make on my own, too, which I will attempt soon.

I did something uncharacteristic of me after that and threw away the roasted veggies I had made the other night. They just weren’t good, and I didn’t feel like forcing myself to eat them. So I made up a new batch of roasted veggies: eggplant, mushrooms, yellow and green squash, orange bell pepper, and an onion. These came out good. 🙂

So, in the afternoon I heated up some of the frozen breaded eggplant slices from Trader Joe’s, topped them with roasted veggies, some pasta sauce, and a little lowfat mozzarella cheese.

Realized after I made this that it was a lot of food! So I ate half before work and had the other half when I got home tonight. It was really good.

Tomorrow is normally my day off but I have to meet with my advisor in the morning and then I picked up a shift at work tomorrow night – I was being nice to my manager who needed it covered because he’s giving me Spring Break off with no complaints. I kind of just realized today that Spring Break starts at the end of this week! I have a lot to do this week before I leave. I’m driving on Sunday to Los Angeles to visit friends for a few days…and am determined to be good about taking food pictures while I’m there!

My foods might get kind of boring/weird, though, as this week goes on because I need to use up the stuff in my fridge that would go bad while I’m gone.
