Trip Down Memory Lane

by Meghann on December 9, 2008

Tonight I had for dinner what I like to call Pancakes Kicked Up A Notch. I’ve seen Spaghetti Squash Pancakes several places before so I know its not an original idea, but I still am in loved with this recipe. Its been a while since I last made them and I forgot how good they are.

There are several ways to make them, but here was tonight’s variation

  • 1/2 Spaghetti Squash, shredded
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/3 cup Egg Whites
  • 1/4 cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • Shredded Carrot
  • Onion
  • Salt & Pepper

Mix all of the ingredients together and cook as if you were heating up a pancakes. This recipe makes 2 servings.

Some other variations of the recipe could included other veggies, black beans, cheese, etc.

I topped mine tonight with Salsa & Fat Free Plain Yogurt. They were delish.

For dessert I had my last Snowflake Cupcake.

I realize I have been a little heavy on dessert lately, but there are just so many yummy options in my kitchen right now. I do need to work at it though. I’m not saying I want to give up dessert (I could never do that! ) I just need to not let them be so heavy. I need to get back on the track of having fruit for dessert instead of cake. That’s my new goal. :)

Can I just say how having all of my pictures back in my hands is such an eye opening experience. I took for granted all of them being there, that I never really took the time to look through them as much as I should. When I got home I started going through the old photos on here and they made me smile. I got my first digital camera for my 19th birthday in 2004 and have my life documented through photo files ever since.

Here are a couple of my favorite ones I had completely forgot about that were on here.

This a group shot of me and my freshmen roommates. This was in a folder dated 4-23-2004! I look so young here! I miss these girls. I actually lived with Erin (the one with the crimped hair) for the rest of college and still consider her one of my best friends even though she now lives two hours away.

Haha gotta love college and the multiple bottles. :) My apartment complex had a free tanning bed for residents so as you can see we were a little obsessed with tanning at this point. You may recognize Emily from my College Reunion post. This folder was dated 4-9-2005100_3782.JPG

And this is the night I gave up sweet wine. I drank that whole bottle basically by myself, no glass needed. THere are pictures on this album, that are not appropriate for blog world. My stomach turns just thinking about that night and all the sweet drinks I had. White wine is very, very bad. This album is marked 12-10-2005

Going with the Europe theme here’s Ireland in March of 2008. My Ex was irish and his cousin was getting married so we flew over for the week to attend the wedding. SO BEAUTIFUL over there!

Here’s Abbie as a puppy! This was in September of 2007, taken right after we got her. She looks like little Miss Attitude here, doesn’t she? :)

I think I have a few thousand pictures on here and each one holds its own wonderful memory. I can remember what I was thinking and the happiness I felt when each picture was taken. I only wish I had my high school pictures to go through as well. I will have to dig some up next time I’m at my parents.

Do your pictures hold special memories to you? Which picture do you treasure the most?

Lunch & Learn

December 9, 2008

I was invited to a Lunch & Learn today sponsored by one of our company’s vendor. It was a free meal so I went and tried to learn, but in general I’m not the biggest fan of the Lunch and Learn concept. Granted I love anything where food is involved, but when the food came more »

Early Christmas

December 9, 2008

I am always excited when I check my mail box and there’s a little key inside waiting for me. That little key gives me access to a larger mail box that holds packages too large to fit in my little cubby. So Little Key = Big Package = Excited Meghann! When I saw the key more »
