Brinner Makes It Better

April 15, 2009 at 9:22 pm 16 comments

Well I successfully got 8 hours of sleep last night but as you can see it’s already after 10, I don’t actually have to be asleep until 10:45 for it to be a full 8 hours but I know how long it takes me to wind down and get to sleep.  I’m hoping I can rush it along and still get my 8 hours!

This morning I woke up refreshed and ready for the day I decided to make a smoothie for breakfast.  It was delicious.  I ran out of POM juice and I really think that’s what was giving my smoothies the bright colors and really enhanced the taste.  I will certainly be picking up more of it soon if only for my smoothies!

Looks like cement doesn’t it?  This smoothie contained:

  • a couple cups of spinach
  • skim milk
  • 1 scoop soy protein powder
  • blueberries
  • peaches
  • 1 banana

Really delicious but definitely missed the POM and the color was a little unappetizing.

For lunch today I had the slice of free white pizza from last night.

Is it possible this tasted better because it was free?  I ate all of it except the crust.

For a snack later on I ate the other 1/2 of the peanuts from yesterday but totally forgot to take a picture.

I had some errands to run today after work so I decided to have a quick and easy brinner.

3 pieces of turkey sausage, a bagel (the bagels I have been eating are from Costco, 2 sleeves of 6 for 5 bucks!)  and 1 egg scrambled.

Yummy, a few times during Lent Andrew had turkey sausage and I was craving it badly today once again I gave in to the cravings for meat.  There’s one more thing on my list of things I want to eat now that Lent is over, turkey burgers!  I plan on having one on Friday when the temperature is going to be 70!  Perfect night for a bbq!  Also that night we’re having our friends over for our first night out on our deck this season!  So exciting!

Tomorrow is my new Friday so my sister is coming to sleep over since she’s on spring break.  Then Friday I plan on spending as much time outside as I can.  What are your plans for this weekend?

As always have a fabulous night!!!!!!

    Ha. That smoothie does look a little cement-like. We have a wedding this weekend, and really all I want to do is bum around. Enjoy time with your sister!

    This weekend I’m (supposedly) going on a trail run with a friend, a brunch party on Saturday, birthday party for BF’s dad on Sunday, plus the usual laundry, grocery shopping, etc. Can’t wait!

    Hope you get to spend a lot of time outdoors…that’s my goal for the whole summer! Get out and enjoy it 🙂

    Sooo jealous of your bbq plan 🙂 that’s my favorite thing about summer, and something that’s hard to come by in NYC!

    I love brinner, and those bagels look great! I love COSTCO and always go when we’re at the in-laws house.

    i love pizza bianco 😀 and yes, shared food and free food always taste better!!

    brinner reminds me so much of boarding school… once a week we would be served eggs/sausage/baked beans (typical brit greas-on-a-plate!!) for dinner and we would pass on “it’s breakfast for dinner” along the queue, haha!

  • 10. Lesley Borger  |  April 16, 2009 at 10:12 am

    Haha, yes, it’s VERY possible it tastes better because it’s free!! 😉

    p.s. I think your cement colored smoothie sounds delicious!!!

  • 11. Erica  |  April 16, 2009 at 1:22 pm

    Yummy bagel sammy! I haven’t had a bagel in forever- you’re reminding me how delicious they are!

  • 12. ellie  |  April 17, 2009 at 4:46 am

    free food always tastes better 😛 ENJOY your Friday-hope you are having better weather than we are in Scotland!

    i actually want a sip of your cement smoothie! i’m so thirsty right now — I’m in the airport, but I don’t want to buy a water, haha.

    your bagel sandwich is such a star 🙂
