Free Pizza and Extra Zzz’s

April 14, 2009 at 8:22 pm 20 comments

What a crummy day.  It’s been raining since I woke up this morning, and it’s been cold and windy, definitely the kind of day you just want to stay in bed and read or watch some trashy tv.  But I hear it’s going to be a gorgeous weekend here (in the 70s!) so let’s get this rain out of the way before the weekend!

For breakfast this morning I continued with the bagel/pb combo, today though I had a cinnamon raisin bagel.

Delicious it reminded me that I have a jar of PB&Co cinnamon raisin in my cabinet, so I’ll definitely be breaking that out again soon!

For lunch today I had the other 1/2 of my Chicken Fajita wrap.

As I took my first bite I realized this side had a ton of cheese and whatever it was I wasn’t a fan so I deconstructed this into a bowl and left the cheese to the side.  It was still a great lunch but next time I ordered it (which I totally will) I would get it without the cheese.  They already had to make it special for me because it had a sour cream (yuck) based dressing so removing one more item shouldn’t be too much to ask.

Around 3 I started to get super hungry.  I don’t know why I don’t bring snacks for the days I need them but for real I knew I wasn’t going to make it until I got home so I ran to the vending machine and got some peanuts.  The only decent choice from the vending machine in my office.

Yum and I still have 1/2 the bag left for the next time my hunger strikes. 

Do any of you keep any snacks at your desk at work?  What do you keep in your snack stash, I need some ideas!

As I’ve mentioned Andrew had given up pizza for lent and I knew he had been craving it for a while now, so we decided to meet at a local pizzeria when I got out of work.  I got 2 slices, 1 white, and 1 sausage and pepper.

Right after I took a few bites the guy who worked behind the counter brought me another slice because he felt bad that there were some burnt spots (I actually enjoyed the crispy parts) and he insisted on giving me another slice to take home.  Who is going to turn down a free slice of pizza?  Not this girl!  You’ll see it for my lunch tomorrow.

Clearly I started eating this slice before I realized I forgot to take a picture, it was super thin sausage slices and there were only about 4 on the whole slice but it gave the slice such a great flavor.  I think I’m getting a little burnt out on eating so much meat already though and I’m ready to relax and eat it more infrequently like I used to.

As soon as we got home I got into bed and watched some Real Housewives of NYC and tried to get warm. I am so ready to feel 70 degrees this weekend, it’s like I forget what it feels like to be warm.

Well I have some emails to respond to and I’m hoping to fall asleep by 10.  Melissa at Run, Eat, Repeat is trying to get 8 hours of sleep every night for the next 30 nights.  I know I could the extra Zzz’s so I’ll be following in her footsteps.  Wish me luck!

    I keep a variety of Kashi bars and 100-cal packs of almonds.

    Pizza is seriously one of my weaknesses!

  • 4. katecooks  |  April 14, 2009 at 9:31 pm

  • 5. Sharon  |  April 14, 2009 at 9:34 pm

    Oh my gosh, everything you had is yummmy! love that wrap!

  • 6. Hallie  |  April 14, 2009 at 9:35 pm

    My work snacks: Ak-mak crackers, dried apricots, tea, almonds, bars…and usually some kind of chocolate. At least what’s there right now. I should hide it better though, because sometimes I think I break into it for non-hunger reasons (stress, boredom, habit…take your pick)

  • 7. Sarah  |  April 15, 2009 at 6:26 am

    nice work on the wrap deconstruction. and on the free pizza! you make me proud 🙂

    i’ve had it with the cold, too! we need some permanent heat around here.

    good luck with the 8 hours, danielle!

    Lately I’ve been snacking on chocolate covered sunflower seeds. If you eat them one at a time they last forevvvver!

  • 9. brandi  |  April 15, 2009 at 7:56 am

    free pizza is always nice!

    I try to keep nuts at work. I used to have little oatmeal packets and crackers, but I ran out of those. I should get more. Bars and dried fruit would be good, too.

    Pooo! You reminded me that I missed real housewives last night! I will have to see when it is on again and DVR it! Love that show 😉 I am all for crappy weather during the work week and beautiful weekends! Fingers crossed for a nice one 😉 Yummy pizza

  • 11. Mariposa  |  April 15, 2009 at 8:30 am

    yum yum yummy pizza!!!! i wouldnt turn down a free piece of anything either!!

    i bring a shitload of food for the day, i always end up bringing something home with me… but i usually have at least two pieces of fruit in case the need to munch happens. i dont want to be reaching for the never-ending barrel of M&Ms around here!

  • 12. ksgoodeats  |  April 15, 2009 at 11:07 am

    That bagel looks fantastic – the swirl!! Happy Wednesday 🙂

  • 13. ellie  |  April 15, 2009 at 11:53 am

    I’d never heard of white pizza until I moved to NY- looks delicious! I always kept protein bars at work. Smaller ones like the south beach cereal bars (scary ingredients, but tasty!) and pureprotein. Luna teacakes and clif-z bars were good too (can you tell I have a sweet tooth?!)

  • 14. Jennifer  |  April 15, 2009 at 12:25 pm

    Your chicken wrap looks great. I am the same way, no sour cream please!!

    And its great that you only ate half! Nice!

  • 15. Ruby  |  April 15, 2009 at 12:48 pm

    Wow that bagel looks amazing! And free pizaa is totally cool! I keep muesli and soy yogurt at work (we have a little fridge), some sugar free liquorice (for real emergences), a stash of almonds, healthy cookie type thingies ad in winter I sometimes have the Cup-a-Soup type things.

    It has indeed been a dreary week so far, but the future is looking bright and sunny 🙂

    The cinnamon raisin bagel looks so yummy! It’s been a while since I had a bagel, I miss them! I used to have one with strawberry cream cheese for breakfast almost every day in high school.

    Another thing I need to eat soon: PIZZA!

    Good luck with the ZzZzZsss

  • 17. Hangry Pants  |  April 15, 2009 at 3:51 pm

    I think cheese and yogurt and other things that are refridgerated make good office snacks!

  • 18. Erin  |  April 15, 2009 at 3:54 pm

    Free pizza?! Um, awesome!

    I love the burnt crispy spots too.

    I can’t even think about pizza for too long or I’ll *have* to have it for dinner.

  • 19. cleanveggiex3  |  April 15, 2009 at 4:35 pm

    oh my, where did you get that bagel!? it looks amazing!!

    love pizza, but I haven’t had it in FOREVER. that needs to change asap 🙂

  • 20. dailygoods  |  April 16, 2009 at 12:01 pm
