Guys, this past week/weekend has been delightful! We met up with friends, slept in, went for glorious walks, watched movies, went to Church, I worked at a funeral reception (my dad works in a funeral home), we went shopping…okay – that wasn’t as delightful…4 hours and 6 zillion stores to find 1 pair of black dress pants?!?! How are should that be?! Apparently quite hard.
Anyway, all in all it was a great week/weekend and it was nice because we know that this week will be busy. Peter’s in class all week taking another graduate-level course toward his Masters, and our boxes arrive this week, plus I’m hoping to meet up with a few friends who are around town.
Because Peter will be in school each day we are back in the habit of prepping lunches rather than just grazing from the fridge/cupboards when we feel like it. And it’s not like when we worked in Victoria where we could bring leftovers to heat up. This time he needs to be able to eat in a cafeteria and to munch during class! So here’s what he’s packing for lunch:
- Trail mix made up of almonds, cashews, pepitas, dried apples and prunes.
- 2 homemade banana cranberry muffins (courtesy of my mama!)
- Sliced cucumbers
- Leftover chicken leg (in the tinfoil)
- Quinoa salad (made up of quinoa, red pepper, apple, raisins, onion, crumbled feta and a mayo/yogurt/curry sauce) – we use this recipe as a basic guide.
- Rooibos tea
It means that he can just grab bits and pieces throughout the day. We’ll start with this “medley” of food and see how the day goes and then we’ll know what to add/take away for the rest of the week.
Besides his kindle (equipped with the text book!) and his Bible, he also needed a note book with which to take notes (duh), and so my dad dug this gem out of storage for him. How classic is it?! Check out the computer codes on the back:
