Rested and Ready to Rock

I haven’t really have a good night’s sleep since before leaving on our trip to SoCal and Vegas (even after getting back on Sunday, I only slept about 6 hours).

Last night, I finally got to sleep in. TEN HOURS, MANG. I woke up feel like a million bucks!

Since I don’t actually have a million bucks, because we were being super fancy and indulgent during the weekend out of town, I decided to go super cheap… or inexpensive with my meals today.

Breakfast was a winner, as usual. PB and PB toast (peanut butter and pumpkin butter) with a big banana and cup of coffee.

Yup. You just can’t go wrong with this combo… unless you’re allergic to peanut butter. Then it will probably go seriously wrong and ruin your day.

I got to catch up on my daily devo’s (which involves writing everything). Something I noticed while writing the chapters for Exodus is that Moses says “Lord” and the other text when talking about God says “LORD”. Interesting. I posted that as a question on our church blog to see if there’s any significance. We’ll see what our pastor says.


I had to go through all the emails that were not read over the weekend, and that took a LONG time. Gosh, Groupon. You need to cool it on all the offers, okay?


I was reading over some blogs and came across this meal and realized that I had all the ingredients to make something similiar to it!

This is so very simple: soba noodles, chicken breast, grilled asparagus, peanut butter, and I had a Thai chili sauce on had, so I used that.

This is mid-way through “grilling”, but I used the Foreman grill to cook up the asparagus while I heated up the noodles and chicken with two tablespoons of PB and about two teaspoons of the Thai chili sauce.

When it was all done, I mixed it up and voila! A Thai-inspired chicken and noodle dish. I later put some salt and pepper and Sriracha sauce.

This dish was so easy to make and the ingredients were super simple. You can probably use PB and some other kind of salty/spicy sauce, too. So good, so simple, so inexpensive.

It’s also healthy! It has good fats, lots of protein, carbs, veggies, and deliciousness. I can probably eat this every other day for three months before I get sick of it.


I plan on working out after a couple hours of tutoring, then studying at Joe’s. Gots me my first final next Monday!

I’m totally ready to ROCK today!!! All this productivity is going to be pretty awesome.


What are some easy and affordable meals you like to make?

  1. If you like veggies w/ noodles type of meal, here another simple recipe: Yakisoba. Pick up Yakisoba sauce from Asian grocery store, frozen stir-fry veggies, and precooked chicken from supermarket or Costco. Throw them into a hot wok or frying pan and stir fry them together till heated thru. Add cooked soba noodles at end, and enjoy. All these ingredients are freezer/pantry staple for anytime meal, especially when it’s cold outside and you don’t want to eat a cold salad.
