needing to replenish the stash

By the end of the week, leftovers get old. But I still try not to waste food, so I eat leftovers. Pardon the dull repeats. I'm more tired of them than you, I promise!! :)

BREAKFAST:
example
Scone and pear. Coffee is a given at this point, right?? :)

LUNCH:
example
Leftover harira, with leftover squash and a squirt of sriracha mixed in. I added about five saltine crackers at work.

(Pretend the orange isn't there. I saved it for tomorrow.)

TREAT:
an organic hard candy and a small handfull of organic animal crackers.

SNACK:
example
Homemade granola, with soymilk added at work.

DINNER:
example
Tofu sloppy joe and cara cara orange.

TREAT:
the last vegan butterscotch pudding. Yum.

I did have one unfortunate grocery tragedy this evening. Due to the stupid-cold temperatures, half of my lettuce froze while waiting for the bus. Sigh. I have a long job of salvage ahead of me this evening!!

I don't like to waste food also, so I end up eating a lot of leftovers. I think that it's a good thing though. Food doesn't have to be different every single day. You know? I mean it would be nice...haha, but very unrealistic for many.

Love all that produce!

Your spices look so pretty and colorful in the photo! I am sorry about the lettuce...it is amazing how quickly things can freeze in these temps! I never would have thought it would freeze that fast...burrr.
