Mailbox Goodies

by Meghann on February 25, 2009

I love midweek presents.

I was very happy to discover two packages when I checked my mailbox this afternoon.

The first was a Trio of Vegan Carrot Cake Whoopee Pies, Nicole was gracious enough to send me after I drooled over them on the Blogging Bake Sale.

It was so hard not to eat all three right when I opened the package.

The second was something I may have begged for over the weekend.

My dear friend Derek teased me this weekend when he sent me a photo of one of Jenna’s Pretzels from Greenwise. I was beyond jealous and decided I could not wait another week to have a pretzel.

Luckily, Derek is this amazing, great, wonderful guy who mailed me a Pretzel right away so I would not have to wait for the carby goodness. (Is that enough blog recognition? ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) Thank You Derek!!

Before I came home and discovered my goodies, I had 2 Multi-Grain Fig Newtons this afternoon.

I have been wanting to try Sarah’s Red Lentil and Peanut Soup for a while, but was unable to purchase red lentils until this past weekend. After work I got straight to work putting together this creative meal straight from her directions. It took a little extra time to make, but was well worth it. I highly suggest giving this recipe a try!

The soup was so wonderfully creamy, but not too heavy. I topped my bowl with some fresh green onion and had had a 1/4 of my giant Pretzel on the side.

It was a great dinner and followed by a great dessert.

I immediately dug into one of Nicole’s Vegan Carrot Cake Whoopee Pies as soon as I cleaned my bowl. It was just as I imagines, sweet and light. I LOVED it. Thank you Nicole for sending some of your extras my way! ๐Ÿ™‚

Alright, time to do some laundry so I will have some clean sports bras for this weekend. Good night everyone!

When I came to work this morning I had no clue what I was going to have for lunch. Then as the day went on and my hunger started to climb, I began daydreaming about what was in my fridge and how I could incorporate it all in to a wonderful, edible creation. As always more ยป

Gasparilla Goals

February 25, 2009

On my morning run I was contemplating goals for my races this weekend. Before each race I like to have set goals so I can feel accomplished in the end. For Gasparilla I have signed up to run both the 5k on Saturday and the Half Marathon on Sunday. With back to back races I more ยป
