snack crisis

The debacle: You know when everything goes wrong when you want it to workout,well that is what happened to me at the lab yesterday. I may be exaggerating a bit here, but last evening I had some work to finish off at the lab and decided to stay back past 7pm, which certainly meant that I was hungry like a crazy pig. I searched my drawers and managed to find my emergency bag of pre-made oatmeal.

problem arises: how to eat it? I searched and searched and finally used my coffee mug to solve this issue, added some hot water to the mug and set in the microwave for 45 seconds. Well, a note here don’t take calls when something is in the microwave…..this is what happens.

And you know what is worse, to clean a microwave that is not even yours,at 7 pm, when all you want is some home cooked food and your couch. I cleaned the microwave but the hunger crisis was still not averted, I went to the refrigerator and finally found this,

Seriously I was the happiest girl in the world.


The breakfast: wheat flakes with apples (I promise it is there underneath), chia, and milk.

The dinner: Brown rice pulao with corn and white beans stirfry!

A simple cuke and greens salad with ranch dressing on top!

Workout: None, it was a forced rest, given to me by the husband!

off to work, I go, have a great day ladies!!!!

  1. I have experienced the oatmeal in a mug explosion in the microwave on more than one occasion!! It’s like each time I forget that it overflows and still do it … not fun, ha.

  2. That rice and bean dish looks delicious. Did you post a recipe for that? I am not very good at cooking Indian food but may have to try it!!!

  3. Ah, I’ve totally done the oatmeal mug explosion thing at work before! I’m much better at cooking my oats on the stove than in the microwave for some reason!

  9. Lady, that is SUCH bummer – I know that oatmeal meltdowns happen FAR more often than I would like and they’re such an annoyance! You know?
