WIAW Leftovers for Dessert

There is nothing better than leaving work when it isn't completely dark, and I have noticed how much lighter it is getting recently. I was in Kent at the weekend to meet with some old dance friends and woke early from the natural light coming in my old bedroom. Being home meant I came back with lots of delicious fruit and veg to enjoy throughout the week as well.
I started the new week as normal with peanut butter and banana on toast. Driving home later on Sunday meant I didn't have anything ready for lunch for work, but luckily I had some roasted butternut squash in the freezer which I defrosted in the microwave, added veg stock and rosemary and blended together. I had this for lunch topped with a little pepper and served with buttered rice cakes.
I snacked on grapes throughout the day, and in the afternoon, I made myself a more mixed bowl of fruit which had mango, kiwi, plum, grape and passion fruit.
In the evening I fancied something fishy, but only really had tinned fish in the cupboard. I cooked up some sweet potato and mixed it with tinned salmon, chives and spring onions. I then coated them with an oat mixture and fried until heated through. I served it with a mixed salad, fennel and asparagus from the market.
I also came home with some leftover croissants that my parents were going to chuck away, and of course, I couldn't let them do that. I concocted an interested yet tasty dessert by adding some leftover dark chocolate into the centre, heated and served with a raspberry coulis.
You can always find an interesting way to use up what could otherwise be wasted, and this was a great way to make an evening treat that didn't really cost anything.
What did you eat today?
