I put a cup of oatmeal in a glass bowl the night before and added 1.5 cups water to it. Covered with plastic and took it in the next morning. Nuked it for 2 minutes. Wasn’t enough. I should try it with more water and longer cooking time. I wanted to get some good stuff from the cafeteria so badly. But at least I brought it in!

Lunch made me think of a Bento box. Recently, I ordered a laptop lunch after eyeballing it for a long time, ever since I bought Vegan Lunch Box. Can’t wait for it to come in so I can try this comboing stuff again. Course, if I don’t even have time to make oatmeal ahead, what are my chances of packing my lunch in a cute Bento-like box? Hey, I’m an optimist!

I need better 3:00 snacks. I have tried the Vitatops before and they were good. Guess I should try those again, eh? Also, only two more days left that I can fulfill my goal this week of bringing lunch from home one day a week.

Those hot cocoas are killing me. Do I throw the canister away and get sugar-free/fat-free version or finish off the canister?
