I found a bag of these babies in our carb closet – the husband made them from some stale bread yesterday while I was in class! OMG they are so fabulous! I knew my lunch had to involve them. Plus I was absolutely freezing all morning so while I was craving a salad, soup seemed like a better choice.
I took a box of Pacific brand Creamy Tomato and mixed it with about a cup of raw fennel, half a chopped carrot and a handful of baby spinach and cooked them all together. I topped that with some shredded cheese and fresh/frozen basil and a few croutons (I ate most of them on the side so they’d be nice and crunchy!)
The only time all day that I wasn’t freezing cold was while I was eating this hot soup.
**Edited to add that I forgot about my handful of kashis before lunch and handful of jelly belly beans after lunch, for the record!**
I STILL have not made it to the gym!! Yes, I desperately need a shower! Right when I was getting ready to go at 12:30 (already running late) the Time Warner Cable guy showed up to fix our phone and stalled me by 20 minutes. I decided since it was 1pm already to just have lunch and postpone my workout. Now that I’ve been cooped up freezing inside all day, I’m totally craving some sweaty gym time :mgreen:
TOMORROW is the husband’s birthday!!!!!!!!!!! We’re going to Karen’s for dinner to celebrate. See you after!
