Samples Rule

by Meghann on August 10, 2009

I <3 Free Samples!! Especially yummy ones! ;)

This morning I dug into my treasure cove of free samples from yesterday’s swag-a-palooza and brought out this Chocolate Envirokidz Crispy Rice Bar to snack on this afternoon.

The bar was the perfect mid-afternoon treat. It was gooey and crispy at the same time. Yum! Too bad I only grabbed one!

Sadly dinner contained no free samples, but it still tasted great. :)

A Spaghetti Squash has been staring me down on the counter for a couple of weeks now, so I finally decided to put it out of it’s misery and build my meal around it tonight.

I halved and baked the squash for 30 minutes at 375 before I tore away at the inside with a knife. While the squash was baking I sauteed 1/3 of a block of tofu, onion, garlic, kale, okra, & red pepper flakes on the stove top.

The meal came out great. I really needed some veggies and this definitely did the trick.

Monday Alarms are the Devil

August 10, 2009

When my alarm went off this morning, I did not want to believe it was Monday! Mondays always tend to be the hardest when getting out of bed. I pulled myself together and ran 4 miles at a 9:15 pace. When I returned back to the condo I completed level 3 of the 30 day more »
