Lost :(

23 May

I can’t believe Lost is over for good tonight. Since there is stuff on from 7P to Midnight, I had to take a two-hour nap this afternoon so I could stay awake—no way I am missing this! 

A pretty boring wknd all in all. Payday isn’t until Friday so I am kinda waiting on that since I paid more than I normally do on my credit card. I hate having all this time to do stuff but no money–sucks. 

I started yesterday with eggs in a hole with yellow apple slices on the side. 



I was pretty bored plus it was overcast out so I decided to go into work to catch up from being off on Friday and of course, get some OT pay 🙂  Anywho, I knocked out all of my emails from Friday plus a bunch of stuff I needed to review. I even applied for some other jobs and it felt good to be caught up. I will definitely be catching the late bus tomorrow since I won’t be going to bed until 1A or so. Ay Chihuahua. 

Yes, that would be Lincoln napping in my arms like a baby.

But happy times were soon near—the hippies were out! I didn’t have a lot of cash on me so only got a few things. 


I had a late lunch –I brought a California Pizza Kitchen Personal Size Margherita Pizza. 



I got home and pretty much just lounged around the rest of the night. 

I was reading The Auspicious Squirrel and saw that she made Pasta Primavera a few wks ago and  been wanting to make it (or a variation) ever since. I usually make tacos or asian stir fry with all my fresh veggies but never really thought to do it Italian style. 

I made mine with Farfalle Pasta, Chicken, Homemade Pesto, Zucchini, Tomato, Mushrooms, Onions topped with a dallop of Greek Yogurt and Feta Cheese. 





FANTASTIC! I loved this and was nice to have a cold pasta for a change. 

 I fell asleep at 9P because I’m lame then woke up, cleaned the kitchen, did laundry and watched some tv. I had dessert of Skinny Cow Chocolate Fudge Brownie single portion 



This morning, I was gearing up to go on a walk and possibly a run and made a waffle and egg breakfast sandwich using Nature’s Path Original Flax Plus Waffles. 




I went for a two-mile walk  which was frustrating. Both my knee and ankle were killing me so I had to stop after that but wanted to do more. I tried running a little but my body did not want to roll with that. Why is my body acting against me now? For years, I was lazy, ate horribly and just a mess and now I want to be active, be healthier, etc. and I keep having this issues. Annoying to say the least. 

I went to the pool for two hours and caught up with some friends there and by the time I got back in, I was starving! I made black bean quesadillas topped with avocado for lunch. 



I saw that Naomi made these SuperCharge Me Cookies the other day and noticed I had the ingredient list in my kitchen and have been itching to make them! I used whole wheat flour and didn’t have any coconut on me but threw in some extra raisins in there instead. It took less than five minutes to mix and made 12 big cookies. 



 Try this cookie recipe now! It was awesome, moist  and flavorful. I put in a few extra dashes of cinnamon and really enjoyed the flavor of that along with the vanilla, raisins and chocolate.  My shadow was by my side also waiting for a taste 


After that I took my nap, I grabbed a Diet Mountain Dew so I could jolt my system to wake up for Lost. 


Dinner time was nearing and I had one of my favorite meals for a night of one of my favorite shows. I made Trader Joe’s Mandarin Orange Chicken with bok choy, mushrooms, onions and snap peas. 



And that’s it. I am absolutely loving this Lost Flashback of all the moments in Lost history. I cannot wait to see what happens tonight!!

    Enjoy your little marathon of Lost- I’m seriously one of those people who has absolutely no clue about what ever went on with that show. Ever. I feel kind of out of the loop now! ha ha

    And you’re a better person that I for going into work on the weekend. For reals.

    omg. our tv station kept cutting out during lost. wtf??? they are going to re-air it next saturday. um. ok. i finally just went to sleep.
    i also wanted to watch the apprentice, but the tv was acting up with that also. so needless to say, i found out who won from listening to the radio on my drive in to work this AM. damn.
    happy monday! kudos to you for going in on the weekend. gosh, i wish i had your drive. we dont get paid OT, so there is absolutely NO incentive!

    enjoy your week!

    I loved the note that said I never understood Trekkies until I because a Lostie…makes so much sense now!

    Cheer up girl. When I got my stress fracture thing a couple of months ago I was UBER depressed…My body was hurting but I didn’t listen to it..you are LISTENING to it. On the plus side..no money=tons of yumminess in your kitchen. Thought of you when I saw those skinny cow icecreams at the store the other day..unfort. they didn’t have the flavor I wanted. 😦

    Thanks so much for the link-back! I’m so glad to have inspired you, I often wonder if anyone makes my recipes or if I’ve inspired anyone to make something similar… thanks so much for making my day!

    Lincoln is absolutely adorable sleeping in your arms! 🙂

    […] with the crockpot buffalo chicken, my mind naturally wondered to quesadillas. I’ve made the traditional quesadillas and even pizza quesadillas but I never thought to make buffalo chicken quesadillas. Once I thought […]
