Thursday Night Out

by Meghann on March 26, 2009

There is nothing better then a random weeknight out with the girls and a great beer to go with it.

After work I put Abbie on a leash and met up with Caitlin and our new friend Neely at Lake Eola for a walk around the park. We didn’t even make it a full lap around the lake when we decided to stop for the beer. Just the kind of walk I enjoy!

It was a great week night escape that had be itching for the weekend that is thankfully less then 24 hours away! πŸ™‚

We spent two full hours talking and wrestling with the dogs, that I didn’t even notice how hungry I was until I got home and noticed it was already after 8:00. Its times like these I’m glad I have random quick meals in my pantry.

Tonight I choose some Tasty Bites Indian Food.

90 seconds in the microwave and a Pita on the side, dinner was done.

And it was pretty tasty. Got to love the quick Indian meals. πŸ™‚

I was glad dinner was quick because I knew I had these goodies to sample afterwards.

Danica sent me a few of the items she was considering baking for the bake sale.

Of course I jumped on the chance to sample and be an unbiased judge. πŸ˜‰

Tonight I tried the Mock Tag Along, Pecan Bark, & Peanut Butter Easter Egg.

The Pecan Bark was really good, but sooo rich!

I could only handle this little bite!

I liked the Peanut Butter Easter Eggs!

They reminded me of a lighter version of my Mom’s Peanut Butter Balls.

My favorite were the Mock Tag Alongs that Danica made specifically with Dark Chocolate just for me!

They tasted JUST LIKE Girl Scout Tag Alongs!!! I VOTE FOR THESE!!! πŸ™‚

This afternoon I had my co-workers flocking to my desk after I popped a 100 Calorie bag of Kettle Popcorn.

Its always amusing how the smell attracts those far and wide. πŸ™‚

Tonight’s Baker Spotlight…

With an overwhelming amount of interest from our Northern friends, this time around I have been able to set up a special Canadian portion of my Blogging Bake Sale. That’s right on April 6th Canadian readers will have the chance to bid on some goods as well! Just as the other goodies will be open to U.S. Residents only, these goodies will be open to Canadians only.

I want to thank Karen from To Be the Whole Package for being my first Canadian friend to offer up her baking services. She has been a thrill to organize with and I can tell she is very excited to bake up something special for one of her fellow countrymen. Check out her write up of her upcoming participation in the Blogging Bake Sale at her blog here.

With the great success of Tempeh in my stir fry last night, today I wanted to try it in a sandwich form. I knew I wanted to use the last piece of my Pumpernickle bread, then upon digging in my fridge I decided Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce, Swiss Cheese & Tomato would make a more Β»

The Hardest Part About Running

March 26, 2009

I remember taking a poll somewhere one time where it asked What the Hardest part About Running is? Well, for me its walking out the door. I have no problem getting up or getting dressed, but for some reason walking out the door that early morning breeze is the killer. Once my Garmin has locked more Β»
