Today was fairly typical. I woke up and dragged my butt to work. After a couple of hours of drinking coffee and feeling my stomach rumble, I had my usual oatmeal. I like to call it “Larabar Oats” because of the dates and walnuts. Simple pleasures, my friends.
It was even better today. Homemade is where it’s at! Of course I say that, and only the meatballs are homemade. The sauce is Newman’s Own Sockarooni (why mess with perfection?) and Barilla whole wheat pasta. I’ve made pasta from scratch once in my life and that was enough for me.
It was slightly messy to eat it peeled, but fun. I used to never eat grapefruit, but in the past few years have really developed a taste for bitter foods.
It was gone in about 4 seconds. What is it with me and chocolate this week?
I think I’ll make this again. The beans are so creamy and the kale holds up really well.
10 points if you spot the frog in this picture. Hee!
