Just Say No To Evening Coffee

19 Jun

Happy Friday all……well Happy Saturday if we want to get technical. But since I haven’t really gone to bed for the night, it’s still Friday in my world. I took a three-hour nap (yeah, hi) after dinner tonight and then had the genius idea to brew some coffee at 10P so I am going to be up for a while. I have been so tired lately that I thought it wouldn’t affect me so much but I can’t stop tapping my fingers, getting up to pick up little pieces of lint I spot on the floor and am so wired, feel like I am going to see this creepy baby any minute now.

And maybe from watching Trainspotting  too many times in my high school days, stems my whole no babies school of thought for me. Hmmmmm, not the right time to think that deeply though. Anyways, I will not be doing nighttime java again any time soon. And yes, I could buy decaf though but I just don’t believe in the D word.

I did have a yummy iced Mocha with Non Fat Milk (but extra whip it looks like) from McDonalds this morning. We have one near work and I really never go to it but I had a BOGO coupon so met up with a former co-worker of mine and got two to go.

It was delicious but a total dessert drink. I was annoying girl sitting in a quiet office slurping it down to the last drop. No one talks or anything and the only noise you really hear is either the phones or my Pandora (which today my cube totally sounded like a gay men’s nightclub going on as my co-worker eloquently pointed out) so why not bring some noise to the table?

I had Peach Chobani Greek Yogurt with blueberries, unsweetened coconut and Kashi Crunch for breakfast after that and was in a sweet, lactose heaven.

Lunch was eel sushi and spring rolls that I picked up at Reid’s yesterday. Did you all know today (well yesterday-June 18th) was International Sushi Day? I needed to celebrate it!

The spring rolls were absolutely terrific. Very fresh, crisp veggies inside and I loved the dipping sauce. The eel sushi, not so much. The rice was hard, didn’t taste too fresh and the eel didn’t have the normal eel taste nor the sauce.

I had a Suzy’s Skinny Cakes Carrot Cake Muffin afterwards (another buy from Reid’s–$.79!)

It was tasty but a bit moist for me. And I do not like too moist of muffins! On another note, if I ever open up a brothel, Moist Muffins will be the name. It’s a cute name and right to the point right? Right.  The muffin was tasty however Suzy needs to work on her packaging a little, since all the frosting came off when I took it out of the envelope

It was a slow afternoon so the new girl on our team walked over to Reid’s yet again to stock up. I am officially cutting myself off from hereon out since I think I am good on food for now and the entire month of July. I am really loving this whole taking a lunch break, taking breaks, having a co-worker who talks thing going on, it’s fabulous.

 The goods:

For dinner, I combined two of my favorite loves—–nachos and pizza. I saw this recipe for Nacho Pizza on Morgan’s site and have been meaning to try it.

I baked the crust for a few minutes to get it crispy then spread refried beans on the dough as the base.

Then topped with leftover grilled chicken, red peppers, onions, tomatoes and cheese

 Had some beer while that was cooking

Baked at 375 for 15 minutes b/c I like it crispy and soon enough it was done!

I had a little ramekin of Kraft Light Three Cheese Ranch for dipping purposes and this was an excellent recipe! I would have never thought to put refried beans as the base and always have leftover refried beans once I pop open the can so now I have something to do with it. Thanks Morgan for posting this recipe!

So, it’s now 1A. I need to find something to do. I packed some boxes tonight for the move, cleaned already and nothing’s on tv. It would really help if stuff stayed open later here b/c I could totally go out right now!

    That baby TOTALLY freaked me out!

    If I had a grocery store going out of business and everything was discounted, I don’t know if I’d be able to stop going to it! I’d be buying everything in sight!!!

    Your pizza looks AWESOME!! Definitely going to have to try that!

    OMG! You said “moist” too many times. It’s one word that just gives me the shivers! And brothels! Aahhhahaha! You are just too hilarious!

    Um, freaky baby. I’m gonna have nightmares.

    Ha ha… I had the opposite problem. I didn’t have my afternoon caffeine boost, so I found myself giving up to the urge to pass out by 10:30 on the sofa… oops!

    And one word I am not a fan of is “moist”. I have no idea why, but it totally creeps me out. A brothel would be a good place for that name…

    I like coffee after dinner if we are out at a restaurant especially if there’s dessert involved. I always ask for decaf because, even though I drink like 6 cups o joe every morning, the caffeine still affects me at night. Lastnight they didn’t have dacaf and I was a ball of energy until way too late. I’m with ya. No more regular at night. No decaf, no dice.

    Mexica pizza!!!! love it!
    I’ve recently had my fair share of sleepless nights, not because of caffeine but I just can’t fall asleep until about 4 in the morning! Boo!
