My Lunch Today

      My class was canceled this morning so I got to sleep in...till noon, hell yeah! I woke up with the, "boy I got too much sleep last night, but am still tired" kinda feeling. For me, that's 10+ hours. I've always been able to function off of less than the average amount of sleep; anything from 4-7 hours is fine for me...more towards the 7 and less towards the 4 though. Since I missed breakfast, I was already hungry...
      Not really in the mood to make some elegant dish, I just sorta chopped a bunch of veggies and sauteed them in a pan with some olive oil. Looking in the frig for a protein to add in, I had half of this Cajun-style rotisserie chicken just staring at me (well not really staring because there was no head...that would be weird), so I diced it up and tossed it in with the veggies. I took the skin off of most pieces because I'm trying to eat healthy, but left it on a few small pieces for a little extra flavor.
      As for the veggies, I chopped up 3/4 of a red & green pepper ( diced the rest for future omelets), sauteed them while I chopped up a bushel(?) of asparagus; then tossed that in. While they sauteed, I chopped some mushrooms and cherry tomatoes, and tossed them in. Added the chicken and cooked it all together for a few minutes. Here's what I got:

      I also made a fruit smoothie with strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, ice, slash of skim milk, squeeze of honey and a spoon of sugar. I did not show a formal recipe for this or the chicken and veggies because I just kinda made these both up on the spot. I just eyeballed everything and it all turned out fine (that's half the fun right?)
      Side Note: I always buy a bunch of fruit and berries and forget about them so they always go bad, and my roommates always bring it up. So "Operation Berries" is in effect. This smoothie just used up a bunch of them so I should be fine this time. peace.
