Last night I suddenly got starving hungry around 11:30. “Well, Jessica, if you were in bed….” I know. So I had a Laughing Cow wedge since I’m fruitless. I’ll add that on to today.
My excuse is that I was so busy studying my computer science homework and taking a quiz — which I bombed unfortunately — that I lost track of time. And then, of course, I had to read the User’s Guide for my new toy. Weird thing? I’m thinking about sketching out some ideas for boxes so that I can make a shopping list. Either that or just copying Vigilant20.
I threw together one tonight from leftovers and what I had on hand. Photos tomorrow of my first Bento / Laptop Lunch!
Last night 
- Laughing Cow, Light, 1 wedge: 1
- Oatmeal, 1 cup: 2?
- Splenda, cinnamon: 0
- Diet Dew, 20 oz: 0
- Multivitamin: 0
- Water, 24 oz:0
- Fruit salad: 2?
1/2 cup? raw spinach, mandarin orange, sprinkle of carrots, 1 cup? melon bits; no dressing and I didn’t miss it… the orange juice was plenty!
- Yogurt, fat-free, 1 container: 2
Amazing that this little container (6 oz) is 100 calories. Also amazing the list of ingredients is almost as tall as the container. Milk, High fructose corn syrup — no wonder 100 calories. Sigh.
Snack – 2ish  
- Cheddar cheese stick, Sargento, light: 2?
I’d rather have Laughing Cow. That stuff is so good.
- Water, 24 oz: 0
- Die dew, can: 0
- KitKat: 5
I chose this over cake in the conference room. KitKat >>>> cake. See? Indulgence. But choosing what is ‘worth’ it. Y’know?
Snack – 4  
- ::whisper::KitKat: 5

I used some of that frozen cut-up chicken from last month’s .49/lb whole chicken sale. So, don’t laugh at the piece shapes. Ok, you can laugh. I did. Because I use so much chicken and because I love spice, I increase the flour to 3/4 cup and each spice gets upped to 1 teaspoon and the salt becomes 2 teaspoons. I spray the pan with some butter-flavored Pan since I was raised on butter-flavored Crisco as the oil of choice for fried chicken. Also, Recipezaar’s values come out to 4 points a piece but these are huge so I rounded.
- Milk, 1 cup, skim: 2
- Romaine lettuce, 1 cup~: 0
- Greek dressing, light, 2 Tbl: 1
- Carrot, 1: 0
Snack  
- Hot cocoa, 2 cups: 8
