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.

What exactly is a tagalong? It looks tasty, but I can’t quite figure out what’s in it.

Love the look of the PB easter egg πŸ˜€

11 runsarah March 26, 2009 at 8:51 pm

The smell of popcorn is almost as good as it’s taste.

Those tagalongs look so good!

12 Meg March 26, 2009 at 9:03 pm

The mock tag a longs look so good!!!!! Lucky lady getting to taste so much!

13 Brandi March 26, 2009 at 9:04 pm

homemade tagalongs? I’m going to have to win, like, everything in the next bake sale.

14 Adi ( - now repaired!) March 26, 2009 at 9:09 pm

I’m scared to make popcorn at work for fear of burning it, and having everyone try and hunt me down for the awful smell….!

Your treats to taste test sure look good.

15 Meg March 26, 2009 at 9:16 pm

That mock tagalong looks delicious.

16 Victoria March 26, 2009 at 9:18 pm

Those treats look great! Are Tag Alongs the Peanut Butter Patties? Apparently parts of the midwest have different names for some of the cookies.

17 Derek March 26, 2009 at 9:28 pm

So you’ve got me hooked on netflix and I just got done watching “super size me”. I’m not sure there is a word in any language dictionary that can describe that movie.

On a lighter note, I had big salad for dinner and I’m stuffed. The eggplant looks great for pita dipping. Sleep tight! =)

18 Danica March 26, 2009 at 9:38 pm

Yeah ~ You got the package!! I am sooo glad it arrived and in good condition for the most part too – woohoo!

Ok – so I am thinking I just might have to include more than one item in my bake sale package. Off to brain storm and put it all together tonight to send over.

Enjoy your goodies although I am sure they made it to the freezer by now for easy grabbing πŸ™‚

It sounds like you had a great night out!

19 Emily March 26, 2009 at 9:43 pm

You are so fabulous for doing another bake sale! I’m sorry I can’t contribute.

20 biz319 March 26, 2009 at 9:48 pm

Blue Moon is one of my favorite “summer” beers – with a big slice or orange! Great to have an impromptu happy hour!

21 Sara March 26, 2009 at 10:48 pm

Those sweet treats look amazing!!!

22 Marissa March 26, 2009 at 11:14 pm

So true! There is something about popcorn that fills an office like nothing else

23 wholefoodswholeme March 27, 2009 at 3:18 am

24 Leanne March 27, 2009 at 6:30 am

As soon as you mentioned the choices for what Danica would be baking, I was like MOCK TAGALONGS for sure!!! lol I love those things…

25 Sarah W. March 27, 2009 at 7:14 am

those tag alongs sound soooo good!!!! I found a recipe for them online, I think they might be added to my “baking list” eventually and make the hubby happy!!!

26 Kate March 27, 2009 at 7:41 am

Thanks for posting the link for her recipe!!!

27 Lee March 27, 2009 at 7:54 am

I’ve been thinking about your waffle egg sandwich since you posted it and finally made one for myself this morning. Yum.

28 ksgoodeats March 27, 2009 at 8:39 am

YUM to that mock tag along!! That looks fabulous!

Beer and friends sounds like a pretty good walk to me, too πŸ˜‰

29 runnerskitchen March 27, 2009 at 9:29 am

I have been reading your blog for months now and I just want to commend you on all of your healthy (and creative!) eating choices. When you’re training for a marathon and working a full-time job, it’s tough to find the time to put together balanced meals. Keep up the good work πŸ™‚

30 Diana (Soap & Chocolate) March 27, 2009 at 9:56 am

OMG AMAZING baked goods. I want I need.

31 lauren (athlEAT) March 27, 2009 at 12:40 pm
