When I walked in the door of my house this afternoon, I was famished. I went a solid six hours without eating anything, which is much too long for me. I definitely got to the point of cranky-hungry. Thankfully, no one was around to deal my mood.
Immediately, I started thinking about what to make for lunch. What was I craving? What was easy and quick to throw together? Leftovers? Was there any produce about to spoil? What would fill me up and keep me satisfied? Eventually, I decided on breakfast for lunch with some mixed greens on the side.
On the menu: an open-face egg and cheddar sandwich on a toasted Sandwich Thin, leftover home fries (from last night’s dinner), and mixed greens with balsamic vinegar.
Hommmeee fries, I love you.
After lunch, I whipped up an amazingly delicious peanut butter cookie in the microwave. Remember my 3-Minute Oatmeal Raisin Cookie? Well, this cookie is similar, but life-changing. (I’m so dramatic when it comes to cookies… and frosting.) The cookie was thick, moist, and super peanut buttery. I’m seriously debating making a second one. I loved it that much.
