60 / 40

This afternoon I had a big green smoothie in a mug. I had a couple of handfuls of cashews earlier so this just had ice, protein powder, almond milk and spinach. IMG_9485 (533x800)

Drippy, delicious mess.IMG_9486 (533x800)

Isn’t it weird when you have a major can’t-get-it-out-of-your-mind craving?! Today I was not stopping until I had spaghetti squash. I made a special trip for one after I had wrapped up all my other shopping because I needed it.

I cooked up a few organic chicken sausages (manager’s special find!) and tossed it all together with sauce.IMG_9489 (800x533)

It was the most delicious dinner I’ve made in a long time! IMG_9492 (800x533)

About the title, let me start by saying I’m NOT a good sharer.  I take extra bites of desserts Ben and I are supposed to be sharing. I also try to get extra back rub time. But I justify it because he totally steals the blankets! blanket share(nataliedee.com)

Anyways, I am also bad about sharing with myself for later. When I make dinner and serve up my leftovers for the next day it’s seems to be 60/40, maybe even 70/30 (!) with the split!

Hey?! Where’d all my food go?! Oh yeah, I ate it…IMG_9493 (800x533)

Anyone else split their leftovers unevenly?

    My Honey swears he “doesn’t do leftovers” and then I come home from work and they AND THE LAST OF THE MILK are both gone. Sheesh! Good thing he does dishes and laundry lol :)

    I do split mine un-evenly too! Haha. I always regret it though … there is a reason I eat so much the night I make it … it’s good! I always want more than what I have left the next day!

    PS your meals look amazing … I think it’s my snack time??

    I’ve been following your blog for a while and love it! It’s been keeping me on track to finish my first marathon in October (yes, finish — I’m not quite ready to run the whole thing, but an 80/20 split of jogging/walking will be perfect!).

    I always plan to keep 40% for leftovers every time I make something big. I like my leftovers for lunches, and I’m not a big lunch eater. So I eat my huge dinner and save my tiny lunch for later. Yeah, I’m a dinner hog…

    Oink, oink.

    If leftovers are going to be my lunch later in the week, than yes, they are definitely split more in my favor, because I eat them all! If they are going to be dinner again later in the week, than they are split more in The Boy’s favor, just because I eat a bit less at each meal than he does.

    I totally split my leftovers unequally. I actually apologize to my future self in advance, because I always know that I’m going to be angry at my past self later. It’s funny…and confusing all at the same time!

    I do that on a daily basis! I finally just stopped making food to have left overs and started making a separate item for lunch. It’s somtimes boring but at least I don’t give in to the yummy 2nd portion rather than saving it for lunch.
