Brownie To Go

Hello new week! Hope you are all having a wonderful Monday so far. Mine actually hasn’t been that bad, other than the whole waking up before the birds thing.

My day started off with the usual quick breakfast – cereal.

Some crunchy & delicious Nature’s Path Pumpkin Raisin Crunch, with 1% milk. This cereal definitely has enough going on, that it doesn’t need any add ins.

I also had a small piece of 7 grain bread with peanut butter. We picked up this bread at the Farmer’s Market on Sunday. It’s made with all organic ingredients

And a glass of pomegranate cranberry juice to wash it down.

Fuelled up and ready to take on the day.

I had my usual 8 am biochemistry class, then went to my volunteer shift at Sprouts. It was much more involved today, since we were actually serving lunch – soup and bread – as well as various baked goods. As I’m working the opening shift, I get to do things like getting the soups reheated to serve at 11, stocking the fridge/shelves, throwing any dishes through the dishwasher, and all the other usual things once the store opens. We are entitled to either soup or a baked good for each shift we worked. Since I was on my way home after my shift, I opted for a baked good – an organic vegan brownie

Great brownie flavour, a little drier than I would like in a brownie, but still a tasty little treat. I’ll have to work my way through the other baked goods in the weeks to come!

I arrived home just in time for some lunch. I though there was one piece of pizza left in the fridge, and had plans of eating that for lunch. Turns out, someone stole it! Boooo. Oh well, I improvised.

I toasted up another slice of that Farmer’s Market bread, then spread on some ED&BV Lemon Cashew Basil Pesto (can you believe I still have some, and that it’s still good?!), and topped it with some aged cheddar cheese.

The last few slices of cucumber graced my plate with a dollop of dilly dip.

And I rounded out the plate with some gorgeous concord grapes These ones were grown by my aunt & uncle at their trailer on Cultas Lake. They had a bumper crop this season, so my mom & dad went to their place last night to pick up some.

I seem to be all about the tasting plates these days.

Pesto + cheese + bread? Match made in heaven. Dilly dip + veggies? Awesome. Those grapes? Are they not beautiful? And they taste just like really good grape juice. Yum.

Now I’m off to the gym for the first time in over a week. I think my cold is finally almost gone, and I’ve missed exercise. Time to get my sweat on!

    Clearly I’m a fresh bread junkie so those slices of farmer’s market fresh are clearly perfection. Especially when loaded with PESTO and nice THICK slices of cheddar. Cheddar cheese on bread used to be one of my complete favourite foods. So simple yet so freaking delicious.

    Ah I hate when I go to eat something and it’s not there! The worst haha… Your improv lunch looks a delicious Plan B, though 🙂

    Great eats! Neat that you get to take some fruit each shift. Nice way to experiment!

    Lovely grapes! I just brought home some of my Dad’s last night!

    You’ll definitely have to taste test all the Sprouts treats and report back 🙂

    “Pesto + cheese + bread? Match made in heaven.” – divine!
