Bottomless Pit

10 Mar

I feel like a bottomless pit today and cannot stop eating. I hate days like this but thankfully they are few and far between. I made the Red Pepper and Almond Hummus from Eat, Drink and Be Vegan. Does anyone else sing this to the tune of Dave Matthews Band “Tripping Billies”? No? I’m weird, I know 🙂

It turned out a bit chunky since my food processor is so small but great regardless!!

I paired it with Trader Joe’s Mini Toasts

And created a great snack!

I can’t wait to try it on a wrap or as pizza sauce!

So…… an Anna Nicole Smith opera is coming out?? Really? I guess it’s a dramatic story, which is good for the opera but I would have never bet money on an Anna Nicole Smith opera. I wonder if there will be a song called “TrimSpa Baby!”?

I have mad leftovers in my fridge so dinner was turkey kielbasa with sauerkraut, onions, mushrooms and yummy pierogies I made the other day. Fabulous and quick!

Got stuff to do-hope everyone is having a happy hump day!

Just call me Ferris Bueller

10 Mar

Because it’s my day off!

 Unfortunately no joy riding in a Ferrari while wearing a beret (more like a Toyota sans hat)

Or singing on a float in a St Patricks Day Parade (more like singing to the Killers while driving in said Toyota a week before St Patricks Day)

But a day off nonetheless!

Speaking of 80’s movies, there is a Karate Kid remake coming out??

WTF? Sorry Jaden and Jackie, you are no Ralph and Pat and never will be.

Some things should just not me remade. And don’t get me started on the Footloose remake…….

Anyways, I called into work since I am in serious need of a mental health day 🙂 I slept in until 9A, took a nice shower (before they turned the water off) and made a big breakfast. I wish I could lounge around with my Turby Twist, pajamas and robe on every morning and take my time eating and drinking my coffee.

Breakfast was egg scramble with two eggs, Morningstar Veggie crumbles and shredded cheese with a side of toast with Trader Joe’s Superfruit spread.

And of course, coffee (from one of my favorite mugs)

Wonderful way to start the day!

If you like Dunkin Donuts coffee, click here for a free sample of their Dunkin Turbo—don’t know what it is but any caffeinated product with “Turbo” in it is good in my book!!

Also, click here to win a fun package of goodies such as tea, dates, udon and other fun stuff!

I had this while watching Kelly and Regis with Ludacris hosting andperforming and I thought of this song–which I completely forgot about it.

This was my jam in college! Must download today, great workout song!

Then I got a text from one of my friends telling me Corey Haim passed away 😦

RIP Corey-Lucas will always be one of my favorite movies.

I ran some errands, first stop was the Verizon Store to see if they could fix my blackberry. Whenever I get a text, the person’s contact information isn’t coming up which is getting really annoying. Instead of fixing that, they decided to clear out my ENTIRE contact list. Grrrrrr. So I am going through all my texts and calls to see if I can figure out who those contacts were but it just sucks since I have contacts from college, living in Arizona and here on my phone. Thankfully I keep in touch with a majority of people on Facebook but still-annoying.

While I was waiting for my phone to be “fixed”, I decided to check out a new frozen yogurt place in my neighborhood—Tasty Yo.

Their stuff is all natural, they take many green initiatives and  the stats aren’t bad at all 4 oz=

*90 Calories

*20 g Carbs

*3 g Protein

*13 g Sugar

*60 mg sodium

I got the flavor of the day-Peach Mango with shredded coconut and kiwi drzzled with honey and got a complimentary green tea wafer stick

They have a cute sitting area with couches and magazines so I decided to stay and catch up on some reading

 I’m so happy I checked this place out–it was fantastic! The yogurt didn’t leave a bad aftertaste in my mouth how some places do. And they offer a punch card which I am all about! I will definitely be visiting Tasty-Yo again 🙂

I stopped by Trader Joe’s to pick up a few things yet oddly enough ended up with more than a few things. I was amazed at how many people who were there at 1P on a Wednesday afternoon. Who are all these people and why aren’t they working?? But then again, they may be asking that about me lol

I don’t know what I’m more excited about:

New Product—Greek Style Feta Dressing

Or the bag of avocados for $2.99

Who cares–I’m excited for both!!

I stopped by the library and they had a good sales on old books and magazines–I got this Cooking Light from this past December for $.25—score!

I’ve been craving greasy chinese take out lately so I finally gave in to it.

I got Spicy Beef and Broccoli from the local chinese take out place–they have killer lunch specials.

Hello lover………….

I was a good girl and put half of it in a container to save for another time because I could seriously down this whole meal but didn’t need that much food.

Just what I needed—talking about the chinese food and this day. I heart not working!!
