Report Pulling Day

by Meghann on March 27, 2009

Today is Report Pulling Day for me at work. Its one of the few days when I have to pull the headphones on at work and just completely zone out as I pull and edit report after report to send to my fellow co-workers. All the report pulling is no fun, but at least since I have the chance to zone out, the time seems to tick by a little quicker.

Its also days like these where I contemplate if I’m boredom snack or snacking for hunger?

Oh well, either way I immensely enjoyed the 5 minutes or so this Mini Cashew Cookie Larabar pulled me away from staring at my computer screen. 🙂

Lunch today was also another great escape from my computer. Oh how, I relish that hour.

I have been lusting after this can of Amy’s Thai Coconut Soup for a while now.

I was able to track it down last weekend and was just now able to incorporate into a meal.

The soup was pretty flavorful, but I would have loved if it had more chunks of veggies in it. It was a little too much broth for my taste and I am honestly not if I would but it again for that reason alone. BUT if you like soups that are all broth then this is for you!

With the soup I broiled up the last of my Tempeh, then sliced them up to create Tempeh Sticks that I dipped into some County Bob’s All Purpose Sauce.

The tempeh sticks were a great idea. Almost like having chicken tenders you dip in BBQ sauce. 🙂

And of course with a big container of yummy treats staring me down when I opened the fridge, I knew I had to sample one of Danica’s Moon Pies for dessert.

Honestly, I am not a fan of real Moon Pies (I don’t like marshmellow), but these looked much better then real moon pies so i gave it a shot. Boy was I glad I did. This taste nothing like a Moon Pie and that’s why I liked it. maybe it was the addition of the peanut butter that sent me over the edge? Either way this was good! 

And now its back to report pulling. I love my job, I love my job, I love my job…;)

Giveaway Update…

Remember my fabulous Gracies Gear Giveaway last month?

I wanted to share Lindsey’s review of her prize…

Just wanted to let you know that I received the sports bra yesterday (talk about quick turnaround!).  I’m so glad I got it because I tried it out at the gym this morning and it is AWESOME.  The material is very comfortable and kept me from feeling too icky and sweaty and the support is second to none.  I definitely plan on purchasing more and would recommend them to anyone.  Oh, and the bright yellow color is super cute too!

I’m telling you these sports bras are great! Its funny because I actually purchased the yellow one at the Gasparilla Expo. Lindsey and I can be running twins.

Be sure to check out Gracie’s website to purchase one of your own. 🙂

Baker Spotlight…

Sarah from This Tasty Life is a very special baker for my April 6th Blogging Bake Sale. She has a personal connection with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society that gives me faith my efforts with Team in Training are for the best possible cause.

I would like to quote Sarah from her blog..

I personally know the good this organization does.  My cousin Kurt was diagnosed with lymphoma at the age of 25.  After a four year battle and three sessions where doctors thought he was in remission my cousin passed away at the age of 29.  However this organization helped him and my family through such a difficult time.  Even if you do not bid on bake sale items please consider donating to Meghann’s fundraising goal.  No donation is to small and every dollar is one step closer.

Sarah you are inspiring! Thank you for reminding me the money I raise will make a difference in other’s lives.

I laughed when I read your mantra: I love my job, I love my job, I love my job….

I have to tell myself that too sometimes on the rough day 🙂

I know the confusion of whether you are hungry or bored…I go through that a lot at work!

MINI LARABAR!!! 😀

Good luck with the rest of work!!

6 Sharon March 27, 2009 at 1:02 pm

Oh wow, super yum!!!

7 Krista March 27, 2009 at 1:10 pm

I was looking to buy that soup last week! I wonder if you would have liked it better with the tempeh cut into pieces and put right in the soup? That may have given it the heft you were missing. Mmmm…that sounds tasty! I may buy it and beef it up with some rice or extra veg….

The day’s almost over!!!!

Oh yum – I will be on the lookout for that soup. Spinach and almond butter are surprisingly good together – I dare ya to try it!

11 Danielle March 27, 2009 at 2:24 pm

Hope your day is flying by!
A moon pie with pb? sounds awesome!

12 Susan March 27, 2009 at 2:24 pm

My roommate told me she didn’t like marshmallows the other day and I totally freaked out at her. They are SO YUMMY!!! But I will spare you the freak out 😛

13 Natalie March 27, 2009 at 3:18 pm

Wow…the moon pie looks amazing! It’s my 4:00 chocolate craving time 🙂

Happy weekend Meghann!
I would celebrate with an extra dessert sampling… hehe! 🙂

Haha, I love the “Devil Wears Prada” quote! I def. have moments of work when I stop teaching to do yoga breathing and mutter I love my job to myself!

Glad you liked the moon pie – That one is one of my favorites because of the PB and Marshmallow combo. I think I like the dark chocolate version better than the milk chocolate version.

Yummie lunch!

Have a great Friday!!!

I’ve been wanting to try that soup — looks delish!

Have a great weekend 😉

Just found your blog by way of Bobbi at NHerShoes! I have really enjoyed reading some of your posts! I have a freind who is also training with TNT for a half marathon and I think it’s a great cause! Looking forward to your bloggy bake sale! Just wanted to say hi:)

Oooh eating tempeh that way is so much fun! I felt the same way about that soup. It needs more chunks! Hope the last half of work flew by and you’re on to enjoying your Friday!

20 Meredith March 27, 2009 at 6:08 pm

I thought the same thing about the soup when I tried it a few weeks ago! It definitely needs to be buffed up with veggies and maybe some tofu/tempeh.
