Random Foods

Hi Friends!  How was your Monday?   Mine went by super fast I can’t believe it’s almost over already.  I’m hoping the rest of the week goes quickly as well.  I had project management training all day which took me away from my desk, it made the day fly by, and I’m hoping I’ll be so busy tomorrow catching up on things that I should have been doing today that tomorrow is going to be another fast one.

I started off the day with Vanilla Chobani and another Luna bar mixed in, just like last week.  This time however it was the chocolate peppermint stick bar.  What a great combo of flavors.

My camera was acting kind of funny today as you can see, it’s like in soft focus or something.

Lunch was something I’ve been craving for a while.  Every time I open my freezer it was staring me in the face.

Picture 063

So delicious!  Amy’s burritos are awesome and this one was fantastic!

Picture 065

Definitely not an attractive lunch but delicious none the less.  I also had a peach on the side.

Picture 066

I think I have one more peach left, I’m definitely going to have to stock up they are so delicious!

Later I had a Granny Smith Apple for a snack.

Picture 069

Once I got home from work I snacked on a pickle while trying to decide what to make for dinner.

Picture 070

It was actually sunny out!  I’m almost out of pickles too, seems like I need to go shopping again.

For dinner I didn’t really have a clear idea of what I wanted, I knew I wanted broccoli, and definitely green beans, but couldn’t decide what else to have.  So I decided to make a quick box of rice pilaf and just mix the veggies in.

Picture 076

Kind of random but it’s just what I wanted.  And of course all that fiber filled me right up. 

I was still in a snacky mood so I decided to break out the watermelon!  Oh I was so excited to have my first piece of the season!

Picture 079

It was so juicy and delicious, it made me want the hot weather even more.  I hear this weird weather might only last 7-10 more days and then we might actually have  summer weather soon.   On the news they were talking about this June vs. June 2008.  The average temp last year for the first half of June was 85, this year it’s 72!  In 2008 we had 4 days that were over 90, and this year we had 4 days UNDER 60!  Does not sound like summer weather to me!  I’m hoping these weathermen are right, I need to get some beach days in!

I hope you are all having a great night!

180 Degrees

I don’t know if it was the whole “fake it until you make it” from yesterday, or if  I’m finally back to my normal eating routine, or if it’s the fact that it’s my Friday, but I am in a much better mood today.  I don’t know if I come across this way on the blog, but I am usually a very happy-go-lucky person, especially around friends and families.  It’s kind of impossible to have a serious conversation with me because I’m always joking around, and today I finally feel like I’m getting back to that.  Again I have to credit you guys because of your kind words.  Andrew was reading through my comments from the past few posts today and kept saying how nice everyone was, and how supportive you guys really are.  He didn’t have to tell me that though I’ve known that since day one.

I had another successful eating day!  Planning ahead has definitely helped, tomorrow will be the real test though because I’ll be home all day.  I feel like when I am forced to eat at work on schedule I do much better, it’s definitely something I need to work on for the weekends.  For the most part my choices are healthy but my eating is sporadic, my goal for the weekend is to eat on my normal schedule from during the week and see how that works for me.

For breakfast I relied on my favorite go-to food.  Chobani of course.  I had a vanilla chobani with Kashi Vanilla mini wheats.

Picture 020

Picture 021

Such a delicious combo.  I’m absolutely in love with this cereal.

Lunch was a pretty great, and I was looking forward to one component of it pretty much right after I finished my breakfast.  While shopping the other night I bought some sliced deli chicken, I put 2 slices (it’s pretty thick) and spicy brown mustard on a “Deli Flat”.

Picture 022

See the slight green in the upper right corner.  That was the part I was looking forward to, it was of course another one of my favorite pickles.

Picture 023

I will never get tired of those pickles. Oh and Laura that pen is totally the swag (stuff we all get) from the bridal show last week, new favorite pen, peace out purple advair pen.

Picture 024

Such a simple but perfect lunch.

And for a snack around 3 I had a braeburn apple.  God I missed these, and they were on sale the other day so you know I picked up a few.

Picture 025

Ok for all of you in the Northeast, what is up with this weather?  I’m so sick of fog, rain, and cold.  It’s almost the middle of June where’s my sunshine and 80 degree temps?  Ugh.  This weather is making me crave some serious comfort food, so I decided to have a quick bowl of angel hair pasta. 

Picture 028

I was going to make a salad but really wasn’t feeling it, so instead I just chopped up a green pepper and some cucumber on the side for some crunch and green.

Picture 029

Yum yum yum.

All together:

Picture 030

This looks like I ate around 9:30 because of the lighting but it’s just so dark here, I ate around 6:30 but you’d never guess.

After dinner I drank some unpictured coffee, and watched some trash tv.  I have a lot to catch up on.  Who else watched this week’s Real Housewives of NJ?  Ok for real, how is next week already the finale?  I’m sad but at the same time I’m so looking forward to the episode!  I also watched Kathy Griffin’s Life on the D List, am I the only maniac in blogland who absolutely loves this show?  I laugh until I cry and rewind parts over and over again, that Kathy is a very funny lady.  If I could fly out to LA and be her assistant I’d be the happiest girl in the world. 

What is your guilty pleasure tv show?

Well I’m off to watch other shows I have DVRed and haven’t had time to watch, I hope you all have a great night, and I’m hoping all your Friday’s go by quickly.

Positive Spin

I decided to take a couple more days to regroup and think about everything.  After reading Tina’s post this morning about having a positive attitude, and “fake it until you make it”  I realized that it’s something I need to give a try.  My life is fabulous, I have an amazing family, and a fantastic fiancé (that feels so weird to type, and even weirder to say, after 4 and ½ years of calling him my boyfriend it feels weird calling Andrew anything else), and such a great group of friends.   So what if I skipped some meals last week, like so many of you said in the comments, it’s okay to mess up, as long as you realize it and move on.  I beat myself up and you guys helped me move past it.
Yesterday  Rose left a comment and invited me to email her to chat more about everything.  After just a couple emails back and forth I felt better.  She gave me such obvious advice I felt stupid for not thinking of it on my own.  It’s still amazes me that the blogging community is so supportive, I get comments that make me smile, and make me think.  Rose did not have to offer to talk to me through email but she did, and put a lot of things into perspective for me.  So thank you Rose for all your help yesterday and this morning!
I finally restocked my fridge and pantry, also thanks to Rose.  I won her contest a little over a month ago and she sent me $50 dollars in gift cards to Shop Rite.  I bought so much fresh produce and other essentials and wound up only spending $17 of my own money!!

For breakfast today I had a vanilla Chobani with a crushed up Luna bar.  I am going to try to refrain from eating to many bars for now, because I’m eating them way to much.  But I have to say this combo was fantastic, like a cookies and cream Ice cream cup.  Yum.
Picture 010 Picture 011

Here’s the bar all crumbled in:
Picture 012 

And all Mixed up:
Picture 013 

For lunch I had an easy but favorite meal.  I was looking for my Arnold’s sandwich thins last night at the store, but they didn’t have any instead I found Pepperidge Farms “Deli Flats”  pretty much the same thing, and dare I say I liked them a little better?  I’ll need to do a side by side comparison in the future.  I had an open faced pb sandwich with apple slices on top.  This might taste better to me then a banana and pb sandwich. 
Picture 015

Around 3 my tummy started to growl so I had a peach.  My first one of the season!  It wasn’t quite ripe enough yet but it definitely was delicious!

Picture 016

I came home from work and got changed to go out to dinner with my family and Andrew.  My sister graduated yesterday!!!!  I’m so happy and excited for her, and I definitely shed a few tears at the graduation yesterday, I’m so proud of my little sister!  Before I left I just had to break out the pickles I bought yesterday.  They’re Baaaack!

Picture 018

My mom wanted us all to go out to dinner and I offered to pay since my parents have taken us out so much lately.  We decided to hit up Applebees.  I got the Fiesta Lime Chicken but apparently I had a little trouble reading the menu.  It said:

Grilled chicken drizzled with zesty lime sauce, topped with Mexi-ranch and Jack-cheddar, and served with crisp tortilla strips, seasoned rice, and pico de gallo.

For some reason I completely didn’t see the Mexi-Ranch in the description and thought it was just going to have fresh squeezed lime juice on it.  It tasted pretty good, although I am not at all a fan of ranch dressing of any kind.  This totally skewed what I would have estimated the calorie count at.  I ate just a few of the tortilla strips, ate about 1/2 the chicken and 1/2 the rice.  It was tasty but definitely something I would completely modify if I got again, sub in some steamed broccoli for the rice, and tell them to leave off the mexi-ranch and cheese.

Picture 019

Thanks again for all the support these past few weeks!  I hope you all have a fabulous night!

I’m Back!

Thanks for all the comments about my mom.  She came home Sunday and is healing and recovering perfectly.  Her appendix hadn’t ruptured so the surgery was pretty simple and not really invasive, here’s a little blurb I found online about the type of surgery she got:

The laparoscopic (minimally invasive) surgical technique involves making several tiny cuts in the abdomen and inserting a miniature camera and surgical instruments. As many as three or four incisions are made. The surgeon then removes the appendix with the instruments, so there is usually no need to make a large incision in the abdomen. The camera projects a magnified image of the area onto a television monitor which helps guide the surgeons as they remove the appendix.

They actually sent her home with pictures of her appendix before they removed it.  It’s so weird.  She’s happy to be home and was touched by your comments, thoughts, and prayers.  

I really missed blogging but to be honest my meals were far from “blog worthy”, too much convenience food for sure.  I stepped on the scale positive I gained a pound but luckily I stayed the same.  Time to kick my butt into gear.  I feel like I’m stuck in a rut, and plan to correct that soon.  I am pulling out some cookbooks and looking for some fun new recipes to try out because I feel like every week I’m eating the same thing and I’m getting bored with it.  I really need to refocus on eating better and exercising more often, the weather has been nice in the mornings when I’m leaving for work and I think I need to get out of bed early and get a run or walk in bright and early so I don’t have any excuses, I just need to make myself a morning person.

For breakfast this morning I had the usual Chobani and a Heart Thrive Energy Bar

Picture 003

Picture 002

I picked that package up (the flavor was Raisin Spice) when I was at the hospital Sunday afternoon and absolutely loved it, unfortunately that’s the only place I’ve ever seen them so I might be sneaking into the hospital coffee shop to pick them up every so often.  The flavor was perfect and they are very dense.

The nutrition facts are pretty great!

RaisinHTNutr 

INGREDIENTS

OATS, BROWN RICE SYRUP, RAISINS, BROWN RICE FLOUR, SOY PROTEIN CONCENTRATE, SOY FLOUR, RICE BRAN, INULIN (CHICORY ROOT EXTRACT), NATURAL FRUIT JUICE, DRIED PLUMS, DRIED APPLES, DRIED PEARS, CALCIUM CITRATE, CINNAMON, NUTMEG.

Lunch today was pretty boring I had a sandwich Thin, this is a recycled picture, I forgot to take a picture of my lunch, I did not have an orange but a Mcintosh apple that a co-worker gave to me.  He brought a whole bag in and put it in our fridge and told us to help ourselves, so I of course did, I wound up cutting a few slices of apple and placing it one of the halves.  I wish I had some granola to sprinkle on, but I’m all out.

Picture 001

This did not stick with me long by 2 I was hungry luckily I started to put bars in my purse for those more snacky days.  Something I should have been doing all along but oh well.

Picture 006

Favorite bar ever!  I need to restock because I’m pretty sure that was my last one.

Dinner tonight was an easy one, I had plans to go on a walk with my friend Jessica, so I wanted something fast.  I used my last piece of ww naan and made a pineapple, meatless meatball pizza.  A flavor combo I’ll never get sick of.

Picture 009

Picture 007 

Naan bread is the perfect size for a personal pizza.

In fun news I just bought a new phone Sunday night.  I’m officially addicted to my blackberry.

blackberry-curve-8830-pink

I couldn’t get a good picture of it, but this is the exact one I got.  Look familiar?  Rose just got the same one as well. I don’t know how I ever functioned without it. 

Well I’m off to snuggle and watch tv, see you tomorrow!

Where Did the Sun Go?

Today I woke up to a beautiful sunny day, then I walked outside and “brrr” it was cold, and unfortunately the sun didn’t stick around long and by 9 it was look more like winter then like the sunny spring days we’ve been having.  I’m thisclose to packing up my things and heading south.

At work today I realized that I have training for the next 4 work days, meaning with Friday off the next time I’ll be sitting at my desk will be Wednesday.  Today was crazy busy trying to get everything done so that I won’t be bothered during training.  I’m so looking forward to my first Friday off.   I have moved past the point of panic and have decided to just relax and enjoy the long weekends.  Obviously if I need the money I’ll pick something up but I have a feeling I’ll be okay for a while. 

I still have a lot of blog reading and commenting to do so let’s get into today’s eats.

For breakfast this morning I had overnight oats.  I was going to attempt to eat it cold as I’ve seen some bloggers do.  Totally not my cup of tea, the picture is from before I heated it up but after a couple bites I marched my behind to the microwave and nuked it.

Picture 001

It doesn’t even look good does it?

For lunch today I revisited a meal I really enjoyed a few weeks ago, a pb and apple sandwich.

Picture 002

Picture 003

I can’t believe it took me 24 years to try this sandwich but it’s definitely one of my favorites.

While hurrying to get my work done I snacked on some grapes around 3:30.

Picture 004

They are totally on their last leg.

After work I came home and did all the dishes in the sink while contemplating what I wanted for dinner.  I had no clue what-so-ever, I think mentally I’m so ready to be eating meat again that nothing sounds good unless it’s got chicken in it.  I still hadn’t figured it out a while later but decided to have some tacos using MorningStar veggie crumbles.

Picture 005

While heating up the crumbles I also added from frozen corn kernels and then mixed in the taco seasoning.  I had it on a ww wrap with less then an ounce of cheese, and some romaine lettuce.  I loved the crunch the corn added to the taco.  I plan on adding corn more often.

Well like I said I still have some catching up to do with my Google reader, so I will “see” you all tomorrow evening.

I’m forgetful

For the first time in the 3 years I have worked at this job, I walked out of there leaving my cell phone right on my desk.  I didn’t realize until I got home and by then it was almost 6 and I did not feel like going back to work to get it.  I don’t have a landline at home so I feel so disconnected for the first time in years I’m using my AIM.  Anyone else using AIM and feel like chatting? Send me your screenname and we’ll chat maybe then I’ll feel more connected to the outside world.

Before I get into to today’s eats let me just direct you to Meghann’s fabulous blogger bake sale.  Seriously I’m drooling over all the goodies!  My Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Bread is up for auction so please go over there and check it out.  She’s raising money for such a good cause,  so not only are you getting an amazing baked good from anyone of the fantastic bloggers but you’re also making a difference!

Onto the eats!

It was so dreary this morning and I was having really weird dreams so getting out of bed was hard this morning, not to mention I thought the alarm on my cell phone was text messages and I kept trying to read them even though there was nothing to read.  Can you tell I need to get into bed earlier?  Tonight I’m in bed by 9:30 not a minute later!  So for breakfast I grabbed a clif bar because I thought I had yogurt left so I didn’t get anything ready and didn’t feel like preparing oats. 

Picture 001

Usually these do a great job of holding me over till lunch, but today my tummy was rumbling.  I had some leftover spaghetti squash from last night.  Here’s a crappy picture of it:

Picture 003

Leftover spaghetti squash is not very photogenic. 

I also had an apple a little later but completely forgot to take a picture so here’s a photo from last week.

Picture 008

Once I came home and emptied my purse looking for my cell phone, trying to contact my boss to see if I still had 24 hour access to the building in case I wanted to go back and get it, it wasn’t until 7:00 that I started to think about eating.  I went with a quick and delicious dinner.  Grilled cheese and yam fries.

Picture 011

Picture 014

I had no cheese in the house except string cheese so that’s 1 part skim polly-o string cheese in the sandwich.

Picture 016

Those fries are from one half of the garnet yam I ate last week, I can’t believe how many fries I got out of just one 1/2. 

Well I have a lot of blog reading and commenting to do, I feel so behind with my google reader this weekend I have a feeling it’s going to be awhile before I completely catch up, so if I haven’t commented you in a couple days I will be soon!

Another Year Older…

Well my 24th birthday is almost over!  It was a great birthday all around and I am so thankful for every warm birthday wish I received from you guys!  I’m exhausted after such a long day so please excuse the rushed post.

We need to do some serious food shopping and I plan to after work tomorrow, so my breakfast consisted of a pear and apple strudel bar, I don’t like replacing meals with bars but I was in a rush this morning so I just grabbed one.  It is extremely filling though and kept me satisfied until lunch.

0323090849

These pictures are from my cell phone so excuse the poor quality.

For lunch I had to get really creative, I had a sandwich on an Arnold Sandwich Thin with peanut butter, a sliced up McIntosh apple, and some peak protein granola, strange combo but really really delicious.

0323091204

After lunch I came back to a decorated cube and a cake with candles, I didn’t get to take a picture of the whole cake, but even though I don’t eat cake, I felt rude refusing a piece that was there especially for me, so I had a super tiny slice and actually enjoyed it, it’s not something I would eat often or would ever crave, but it wasn’t like I hated it.

0323091406a

I left work a couple hours early for my birthday and rushed home to get ready to go out to eat and to grab my camera for dinner.  I went out with my family and Andrew to our usual birthday spot, Yesterdays.  My dad and I decided to split a carafe of Zinfandel, I think was my first time having wine this year.

Picture 059

I was starving so I immediately hit up the salad bar.

Picture 061

And the rolls were hot out of then oven so I had a couple.

Picture 062

Last time I went to Yesterday’s I decided I was going to let myself splurge on my birthday, with my very favorite dish, Chicken Parm.  But since I had given up meat I decided to go with the standby, eggplant parm.  It was very good, but honestly I like it better when I make it without any breading, I felt like mostly I was tasting the fried breadcrumbs. 

Picture 065

I ate 2 pieces and have 2 left for tomorrow’s lunch.  Penne came on the side but I only ate a couple bites and that will also be tomorrow’s lunch.  I apparently didn’t take a picture of that though.  Too much vino maybe?

After dinner my family and I headed home, after digesting for a little while, we broke out the ice cream cake.

Picture 068

Andrew and I did our usual splitting of cake where he got my chocolate and I got his vanilla.

Picture 072

What a mess, i didn’t finish all my cake, I was way too full.

So for presents I really did well this year, from my sister I received 2 shirts, and from my parents I got Jillian Michaels’ Burn Fat Boost Metabolism DVD.

Picture 084

I also got an arm band for my Ipod.

Picture 081

And the Polar F6 hear rate monitor I wanted!

Picture 076

In a very pretty pink.

Picture 080

I can’t wait to get to the gym tomorrow and give it a try.  I also got some unpictured steak knives that we definitely needed in our apartment. 

Between the wine and the excitement of the day I am extremely tired. Thanks again for all your wonderful wishes!  I’m sad my birthday is over but I’m excited to get back into eating my normal healthy meals.  No more using my birthday as an excuse to indulge.  Although I don’t feel guilty about my splurging, it was my birthday and I enjoyed my favorite things but it’s time to get back to normal. 

Hope you all have a great night!!

Weekend Recap

I am a bad weekend blogger.  Wish I could say it was because I was so busy with friends and having fun.  Unfortunately I didn’t do much this weekend, Friday night I crashed early and yesterday I was feeling really sick so I skipped a friends birthday dinner and night out for some time in bed.  Not a productive weekend but definitely needed.  I’m hoping that with all my rest I should feel great this week, I’m also hoping this week flies by as quickly as last week did.    It’s sad the weekend’s over but I’m ready to get this last week of February over and done with.  I can’t believe it’s almost March!  Springtime is just around the corner.  And March is my favorite month, I might be a little biased because my birthday is in March. 

So clearly I have a lot to cover since I have not written anything since Thursday.  So let’s get onto the eats.

Friday for breakfast I had a bowl of oats, I decided to finish off my canister used the 3/4 heart healthy portion.  That was really good but super filling.

Picture 002

With cranberries and PB.  So delicious!

This was seriously stick to your ribs good.  3/4 of a cup is great, but it definitely kept me full for hours.  By lunch I was barely even hungry so I just snacked on a cut up gala apple, 2 clementines, some blueberries, kashi crackers, and about 1 tablespoon of pb.

 Picture 009

I didn’t eat that z bar until about 3:30.

For dinner that night we made a stir-fry of sorts.  I used black beans, green peppers, onions, baby corn, and salsa.  It was a really yummy combo.

Picture 022

After this we headed to the gym, it felt soooooooo good to be back.  I definitely didn’t have my best workout but it was really good.  I was just happy to be back to working out.

I woke up Saturday morning and had some puffins for breakfast.

Picture 025

I ate about 3/4 of this before I was full.  After breakfast I hit up Costco with my dad, I didn’t buy much just some socks, bananas, a new scale, and some seasonings. 

For lunch later on I was craving some of that Panera LF chicken tortilla soup, so I ran out and bought some and ate it at my parents while I waited for Andrew to be done with work for the day.

I got the soup:

Picture 030

And their Classic Garden Salad:

Picture 034

I also ate a piece of the whole wheat baguette, but somehow I didn’t get a picture of it.

After Andrew got out of work we headed to the gym.  I felt like complete crap, I got horribly out of breath barely doing anything and my head was pounding we only wound up staying about 45 minutes before I finally couldn’t take it anymore.  We left and came home.  We had a birthday for a friend to go to, we were supposed to go out to dinner and then out to a bar, but I knew I just needed to stay home.  I made myself a comforting dinner, while Andrew headed out for the birthday festivities.

I had 2.5 ounces of whole wheat Angel Hair pasta, with 1/4 cup of spaghetti sauce.

Picture 035

I ate this and then moped around the house, frustrated that I was missing out, especially because a friend I rarely see was there.  I took a hot shower, took some medicine and laid down, after about 45 minutes I felt super sick and nauseous.  Unfortunately that spaghetti dinner didn’t stay down very long after that, sorry I know that’s TMI.

I fell fast asleep by 9:15 and only briefly woke up when Andrew got home later that night, other then that I slept right up until this morning.  I felt much better but didn’t have any appetite until close to 12.  I decided to have scrambled eggs with green pepper and 3 turkey sausages. 

Picture 043

Because we ate so late in the day I didn’t wind up eating any lunch.  We went to the gym and the girl I was sad I didn’t get to see last night was actually there, after she gave me some grief for not going out last night we worked out together.  She works at the gym as a trainer (not mine though) so I did 20 minutes on the bike while I waited for her to finish up, then she showed me some new arm exercises to do.  She worked me out hard we were both dripping sweat by the end.  Then we did a quick 15 minutes on the elliptical.  I was so surprised by how much I did the elliptical, I’m not a fan of it, but I might have fallen in love with it today.  I was drenched in sweat when we left.

After the gym we ran to the food store to pick up a few items for the week, sorry I didn’t take any pictures of our purchases.  We made tacos tonight with lean ground beef.

I had 2 tacos on a whole wheat toritilla with lettuce, green peppers, salsa, and mexican blend cheese.

Picture 051

Well I’m off to finish my taxes.  Keep your fingers crossed for a big return!

Creature of Habit

Hey bloggies!  I am in such a better mood then I have been the past few days.  This weather today was just ridiculous.  Hard to believe last week we had 6 inches of snow here and now it was close to 70 today!  Oh my gosh it was gorgeous, I wish I wasn’t at work the whole day but I know that weather like that for everyday life is just around the corner.  Tomorrow it’s supposed to be colder and rainy but now that I have a taste of springtime weather I can’t wait for it!!!

I’m glad so many of you have a favorite color M&M you like to eat.  I typically get made fun of if someone is eating M&M’s and I ask for an orange one, good to know that many of you have a color preference.

Thank Goodness for the nice weather because my eats were seriously bland and boring today.  I really need to mix things up soon.

Breakfast was my “old reliable” vanilla Chobani, with Bear Naked Granola, and dried cranberries.

Picture 001

Big Surprise right?

Well get ready for some real excitement, I had another ww bagel with pb today, but it wasn’t toasted like yesterdays.  Just trying to mix it up.   I’m in lunch time rut.  I also had 2 clementines today.  So at least there’s some color there.

Picture 005 Picture 004

 Picture 006

Later in the afternoon I had a braeburn apple.

Picture 007

I was starving when I got home, I couldn’t wait for dinner to cook, so I had a string cheese while I got everything ready.

Picture 010

For dinner we had grilled chicken, with brown rice, broccoli, and a side salad.

I ate all the chicken, all the broccoli, and most of the salad and rice. 

Picture 011 Picture 012

Picture 013 Picture 015

Picture 014

I need to redeem myself tomorrow.  I already made lunch for tomorrow and it’s not a bagel but it’s nothing exciting either.  After dinner we went to the gym another good session but my arms are already sore, I can’t imagine what they are going to be like tomorrow!

So Valentine’s day is coming up this Saturday, we’re really late making plans but I believe we’re going to go to Baltimore for the night to hit up the aquarium, does anyone live in or near Inner Harbor Baltimore and have a good suggestion for some great places to eat? 

Well I’m off to read and go to sleep, if it was warm where you are today I hope you enjoyed the weather!

If You Seek Amy’s Dinner

Thank you for all “feel better” wishes.  I woke up feeling a whole lot better this morning.  And although the sinus pressure is still there atleast today was bearable.  I’ll have to see what happens when the temperature shoots up to 60 tomorrow.

  I finally found blueberry Chobani at my local food store, typically they only carry, plain, vanilla, and occasionally peach.  This time they were all in stock.  I mixed in a 1/4 cup of Bear Naked Fruit & Nut Granola.  It was so delicious, although I think peach is still my favorite fruit flavor.

Picture 004

Before lunch I got hungry but wanted something chocolatey if you know me at all that’s a big surprise, it is so rare that I crave anything chocolate.  I know I don’t have it often so I have no problem indulging in chocolate when I do want it.  Luckily my boss is a chocolate fiend and always has some for me to steal when the mood strikes.

Orange M&M’s are my favorite, I know I know they all taste the same, but oh well, I’d pick an orange over any other color.  : )

Lunch was a bagel with pb.  I’m in a serious lunch time rut.  I need to have something different but I just love this combo.  I’m going to try to think of something different to have tomorrow.

On the side I also had a gala apple.

For dinner tonight I didn’t feel like coming home to an empty house again, while Andrew was at work until 9 at the pharmacy, so I called my mom to see what they were having for dinner.  They were having left over stuffed peppers and there was only enough for my parents.  So I stopped off at the store and grabbed some much needed produce, and an Amy’s Shepherd Pie.  Thus the corny name of this post.

Can Amy’s do anything wrong?!  This was as delicious as everything else of the brand, that I have tried.

They may not look appetizing, but seriously it was delicious!

On the side I had a blurry romaine salad.

Any my mom’s a real weirdo and like stuffed peppers but doesn’t like to eat the peppers.  So I happily took her empty pepper and ate it myself.

Well it seems that I’m posting later and later these days.  I’m going to lay down and read my Shape magazine that I bought today.  Hope you all have a great night and thanks again for the sweet and wonderful comments yesterday, you guys are all so sweet!
