Meals on the Go

I had to say goodbye to my little sister this afternoon. 😦

 

Before we left for the airport, I made a Mexican themed lunch:

I had a cup of black bean soup

…and a salad.

My salad included:

  • romaine lettuce
  • green bell pepper
  • crumbled chips
  • Grilled chicken breast
  • cheese
  • salsa

On the way to test number two of the day, I ate a CLIF bar mini in the car. I almost brought a Pumpkin pie Kashi bar, but I have missed the Brownie! Jason always steals them, but this one was buried in the bar stash! 😀

I also stopped at D and D for some Latte love! 99 cents, can’t beat it!

I packed my dinner in a little Fresh n’ Fit container that I have actually had for a while, but never use. It comes with an ice pack, and individual compartments for snacks. In case anyone is wondering, I found it at Target.

In the main compartment I packed a turkey and cheese sandwich. The ice pack fits over the sandwich area, and rests on little “shelves” so it doesn’t squish the sandwich.

I filled the top two containers with fruits and veggies: one with carrots and peas, and one with strawberries.

Each of those fits into the groves on the ice pack…

…and closes with the lid!

It kept my food cold (for 6 hours) without having to pack the whole bulky lunch cooler! I really liked using it!

What do you use to carry around your meals or snacks when you’re on the go?

 

Edited to add: I’m currently nibbling on Mickey’s Ear… ok… putting down the rice krispie treat…

Things I’m Thankful For #1

I really don’t appreciate the little things in my life enough!

I often complain about not being a fast enough runner, or getting good grades, or whatever, but those things do not need to overshadow the great things in life I have to be thankful should be grateful for! I have decided that for every remaining day of November, I am going to think of one thing that I am thankful for and write about it. By Thanksgiving, I will have gathered a list of 25 things that I am thankful for!

The first thing that came to my mind this morning: I am thankful for my sister!

Isn’t she beautiful?

Since she lives in North Carolina, and returns today, I realized how much I am going to miss her!

(Yes, Brielle is much taller than me. I am 5’4.5” and she is 5’11”)

Brielle has been visiting me for three weeks now, which is the most time we have been able to spend together in a very long time! She and I are opposites, but I love her, and she always makes me laugh! It’s fun to hangout with her, because she understands me better than most other people in the world. 😀

I love you, Brielle!

Stay tuned tomorrow for Thing’s I’m Thankful for #2! 😀

Five Tests, Three Days

The next three days are going to be chaotic. I apologize in advance if my posts seem scatterbrained.

My test schedule this week is:

  • Monday: Hydrology 2A Test 
  • Monday: Concrete Design Test
  • Tuesday: Environmental Process Design Test
  • Wednesday: Hydrology 2B Test
  • Wednesday: Electrical Engineering Test

Hopefully by Thursday, I can sleep!

 

I have been putting studying on the backburner the past few days, between the Halloween party and Disney with my sister. I have some serious work to be done!

 

I woke up extra early to get some studying in before this morning’s test. It was so much easier with the time change!

 

However, coffee was still necessary:

As was a filling and nutritious breakfast:

I chopped up half an apple, sprinkled it with cinnamon, and added it to my oats half way through cooking.

My oats included:

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 apple with cinnamon
  • 1 TBL flax
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • walnuts

Walnuts (before chopping them up) look like little brains to me. Maybe they will help me on my tests!

I am starting a special blog series for the month of November, so check back around lunch time!
