Snow Day

Well, we are home with snow! I know many of you have already been experiencing many of these in your areas and now we've finally gotten one too. The downside to me having a snow day is now I have nothing better to do than harass you all with food! So in addition to her lunch I also posted the recipe for our breakfast in the recipes section. It's called, Pink Monkey Overnight Oats.

This is what Monkey had for lunch today! When possible I find keeping pre-cooked pasta very helpful. You can just cook the entire box when you make pasta, then bag some with a little bit of olive oil (so your noodles don't stick into a block) and you have pasta whenever you need it! Can just reheat if you would like.

IN THIS LUNCH:  Leftover bowtie noodles, a little basil pesto (also leftover), halved grape tomatoes, about 1/4 of an avocado, and topped with a little mozzarella cheese.

I did not heat this, it was a cold pasta salad and she loved it. The avocado was getting really soft so I was worried about it going bad soon and wanted to use it up. For some reason getting trapped in by snow makes me want to go all survivor-mode. Haha. So I wanted to use up things before they went bad so we don't waste any food, in case we can't get to a store soon. Will we be home more than a day or two? Probably not, but it's just a weird place I get. I don't know about you, but I will not drive in snow unless it's an emergency! :-P I'm just not a snow gal.

Happy Packing! (Or Happy Stay Home and Leftover Making)


  1. All the snow is gone here, it´s been raining all day

    1. It's always raining here, that's nothing new for us. Snow, a bit more rare. Even just a little seems to shut down the city.

  2. Lunch looks delicious! We're buried under snow here too.

    1. Thanks Jenn! Monkey really loved it, she's a little tomato and avocado fiend though. Haha. I'm glad you liked it too. Thanks for commenting. Hope you're staying warm.
