Move It

by Meghann on June 3, 2009

t’s amazing how great it felt to come home and go for a great walk today after work. I did one lap around the complex with Abbie, then grabbed New Moon and did another. Walking really loosened them up. I am not sure I will be able for a run tomorrow, but I see the elliptical in my near future.


I actually tried to spend the least amount of time possible at my desk this afternoon as well. Whenever provided the chance I would walk to a co-worker’s desk instead of sending an e-mail and I printed documents one by one right when I thought to print them, instead of saving them all for one trip at the end. Can you tell I am dying to move around?

During this time I also munched on one of my sample bags of Peanut Butter Puffins.


Such a great convenient little snack!


After my walk I decided to try cooking up a new find from Whole Foods.


The pre-seasoned peanut & ginger tofu was a simple time saver. I baked as normal, but did not have to spend 30 minutes to an hour pressing it as I would regular tofu.


The peanut and ginger bits were actually mixed right into the tofu, instead of just flavored on the outside. I could really taste the ginger, but not so much the peanut. It was really tasty though. 🙂


With the tofu, I had a sweet potato that was dying to be made into something yummy.


I can’t remember the last time I had sweet potato fries. I baked the slices right up with the tofu and they were amazing.. especially dipped in the country bob’s all purpose sauce.


I also had a red cabbage that had been in my fridge longer then I could remember. After a quick google search I discovered for to make Sweet and Sour Red Cabbage all you needed was some vinegar, a little bit of sugar and an onion thrown in for good measure.


I didn’t really follow a recipe here I just added as much vinegar to the pan with the red cabbage that seemed appropriate and sprinkled it with sugar until it tasted right. It really was not that bad. I didn’t cook it long enough so it was still a bit crispy, but I think I prefer it that way. 😉


I just realized there is no green on my plate. Oh well.


For dessert I pulled out a Turtle Mountain Raspberry Sorbet Bar.


These are sweetened with agave nectar instead of sugar. I was expecting something hard like a fruit bar, but instead it was mushy and melted instantly in my mouth. Yum!


Unfortunately my Mac is still giving me trouble. I have decided to blame my Ecto program failing on my Mac being slow in general. I purchased Apple Care with the laptop, so I have an appointment with the Apple Store’s Genius Bar on Friday. Cross your fingers they can figure out what’s slowing it down!


New Phone

June 3, 2009

My new phone came in the mail today! I ordered it last night and it made to my desk before lunch time, got to love those overnight shipping promises. 🙂 I had been planning on getting a new phone anyways, the death of my previous one just prompted me to get one that much sooner. more »

Sorry about totally bailing on blogging last night! My blog software is still acting up on my mac, so I decided soaking in the bath tub and catching up on the TV was a MUCH better idea then arguing with my laptop. 😉 Oh yes…. much better idea. 😉 I was pleasantly surprised how quickly more »
