The Real Number System

I was a sub for a math teacher today and I realized I was soooo much better at seventh grade math when I was actually in the seventh grade. However, I had a good time and I was glad to work another day! The hardest thing about subbing at this particular school is the time schedule - my first alarm went off at 5:00 am. I finally rolled out of bed at 5:19 am...boo....

Needless to say, it was a coffee morning.

Unfortunately, I only got to drink about a third of my cup before I got super busy running around school. :(

Breakfast on early mornings like this must meet two criteria:
1. Easy to prepare
2. Easily eaten in the car

The only thing in our house that meet both criteria right now are Jimmy Dean D'Light breakfast sandwiches.

I was hungry by the time lunch rolled around at 1 pm. I had packed a fairly healthy lunch of lean sliced turkey and fruit, but the smell of School Pizza was calling my name. I had missed School Pizza and School Salad, so I splurged on a treat. I had forgotten that School Pizza smelled so much better than it actually tasted PLUS they went up on the cost of School Pizza and School Salad. $3.50 was a bit much in my opinion. I do not believe I will fall victim to the smell of School Pizza any time in the near future. (I was not able to take a picture of School Pizza and School Salad....let's just say the mention of a food blog to some of my fellow (male) teachers would serve as fodder for personal humiliation for weeks to come.)

Once I got home, I shut my eyes for 10 minutes before running a few errands with the hubs. We were both hungry when we got home so I started making dinner. I totally relied on the pantry and freezer for tonight's meal.

Amy's Tom Kha soup was pretty good for a canned version of the Thai restaurant favorite. I, of course, would always prefer the restaurant version, but for an at-home Asian inspired meal, neither hubs nor I could really complain. Same goes for the Hamburger Asian Helper. I did try to "freshen up" my boxed meal by adding sauteed baby bella mushrooms and green onions. And of course, I LOVE the Trader Joe's stir fried vegetable egg rolls!!!

I think a glass of fat free chocolate milk is probably in my immediate future. Then, I do believe it is bed time. Another early morning tomorrow!!

Night ya'll!
