You have no idea how this site has tested my patience over the last ten days! Each time I think things are running smoothly and back to normal, something else pops up.
I am so over dealing with the technology side of this blog that I have even settled for some of my older posts, including Monday’s post, to include photos that aren’t displaying correctly.
As important as this blog is to me, there’s only so much energy one can devote to certain situations that a few photos out-of-place isn’t the end of the world. However, the fact that search engines have stopped indexing my site (I know, I am speaking another language) is leaving me enraged and ready to explode.
Just so you know.
Let’s talk about what I ate yesterday!
Just the usual early morning coffee with oatmeal and banana. I take the oatmeal straight out of the refrigerator as I usually have a few servings already made for the week.
I heated up half of this bowl of oatmeal with half of the banana mashed in along with the coffee. I also had water, I drink a lot of water when I wake up in the morning.
A couple of hours later, after getting my son off to school and running eight miles, I had the rest of the oatmeal mixed with berries, Skoop and peanut butter in this almost empty peanut butter jar.
It’s a good thing I like eating my oatmeal out of these empty jars since my dishwasher is still broken! I am currently waiting for the new dishwasher to arrive so let’s just say it’s been a long week mixed with plenty of paper plates and empty jars to avoid using my regular dishes as much as possible.
Also, that spoon you see is another one from my son’s baby spoon collection. A Big Bird spoon!
So last week I experienced a bunch of hungry days and now this week my appetite is sort of missing.
Actually it’s not really missing, it’s just not raging.
I had zero idea what I wanted to eat for lunch and I wasn’t even that hungry or craving anything in particular. I almost had another bowl of oatmeal as lunch but then I noticed the butternut squash that I bought the other day staring at me from the kitchen counter so I decided to finally do something with it.
I roasted some of the butternut squash with brussels sprouts and asparagus but I still really didn’t know what I was having for lunch.
Like, what was I having with this plate of roasted vegetables?
Somehow I ended up toasting a slice of cinnamon raisin Ezekiel bread and using it to make a small egg sandwich. I think it even hit the spot.
Just remembering now as I type this that I had a few apple slices with peanut butter after lunch while listening to a webinar for work < – no picture.
I made eggplant cacciatore last night as part of our Recipe Challenge!
We will chat it about it more on Friday but it was delicious. I also added some roasted butternut squash to the recipe since I had it cut up already from lunch.
No matter how I try to come up with different nighttime snacks, I still gravitate back to my favorite apple, peanut butter and chocolate chips.
And yes, I went back for more peanut butter and extra chocolate chips. A few times, because that’s how I roll. If you have no idea what I am talking about, check out yesterday’s post on the topic of disordered eating and stuff like that.

Anyone else having blog issues lately? Is Yoast telling you that search engines can’t index your site?!
Who went back for more chocolate chips last night?
What’s for lunch today? Do you know yet?
