Day 23, briefly

I originally thought I had to be at work at 7 AM tomorrow to start my shift, but I was wrong. It’s 5 AM instead! That means I need to scarf down my dinner, take a shower, and go to bed as quickly as possible. Unfortunately we’re in the midst of a heat wave and it’s pretty hot inside my house. Not as hot as it’s going to be tomorrow, but I’m trying not to think about that right now. Sleeping when it’s over 80 deg inside is very uncomfortable. And I wouldn’t recommend eating chili for dinner on a hot day, but I had one last serving in my fridge that really needed to be eaten or go to waste. Luckily it’s delicious so it’s not a huge sacrifice.

Speaking of delicious food, I tried the acorn squash casserole today and I am happy to report that it’s amazing! Due to my early shift start time I wasn’t hungry enough to make scrambled eggs before I left the house this morning. So instead I put some squash casserole in a little container so I could heat it up at work, and threw some sliced hot dog on top. It was perfect. I already made another serving for tomorrow. Who wants to cook eggs at 4 AM anyway?

Today’s meals:
Breakfast – Acorn squash casserole (with sausage and onion), cantaloupe (the only part of the catered breakfast I ate)
Snack #1 – Apple
Lunch – Carnitas, roasted broccoli and carrots, and roasted diced sweet potato
Snack #2 – Banana with almond butter
Dinner – Pumpkin chili (last serving before I have to dip into my frozen reserves!)
