Ladybugs for Lunch

Today has been quite an off day!  My work schedule was changed from 12:00 to 7:oo for Parent Conference and Record’s Day.  So I woke up later than my usual 5:15 a.m. time.  After waking up, I was undecided as to whether I wanted a savory breakfast versus a sweet breakfast.  I thought, “Why not have both?”  Accordingly, I made an egg to put on one half of my sandwich thin and topped the other half with a smear of natural peanut butter and half of a sliced pear.

I also had a cup of hot black tea.

Lunch was off as well!  At work today, myself and the other 4th grade teachers threw a baby shower for one of our coworkers.  Her theme for the baby’s room is “ladybugs” so we kept the shower in the same theme.

We decided not to have any snack foods other than the cake because we figured most ate before coming in at 12:00 and teachers would probably want to get work done in their rooms while they had some spare time without children.  Nonetheless, the shower was a joyful event—even though the surprise did not go quite as planned. ;)

Since I didn’t eat lunch at home (though I did bring some, just didn’t eat it) I ate some cake.

And more cake!  This was my first piece, but I did get another slice about the same size.  It was so moist and delicious I just couldn’t resist!  So I had the ladybug cake and called it my lunch.  Someone actually made a comment saying, “I bet you didn’t eat any.”  “Oh yes I did; I ate two slices!”  My rice and veggies from last night’s dinner will be consumed at tomorrow’s lunch.

I did eat the snack I packed in my lunch at my 3:00 break.

I didn’t get home from work until nearly 8:00, so I wanted a quick fix for dinner.  I ate some baked potato fries with olive oil, sea salt, and red wine vinegar that were roasted for 25 minutes at 400*.  I also had a Boca Veggie Burger on a sandwich thin with lettuce, pickles, mustard, and ketchup.  No picture was snapped because my camera had an off day as well!  The battery life  was 3/4 full, but it went dead every time I tried to take the picture. 

Now my computer is about to shut off, so I gotta go!  Plus my Saint’s are playing! :)
