Working From Home

by Meghann on October 5, 2009

The non-ac situation at my office building continued to worsen all morning. My computer began to act as a personal heater and I think I was starting to smell from sweat. Actually, the whole office was starting to smell. Ewww….

Luckily my boss saved the day and told me to go home and work from there. She didn’t have to tell me twice! I was out of there faster then you could say heat wave.

So now I am enjoying the cool AC of my apartment while I type away on my couch. The plus side to working at home is just how much work I’ve actually been able to get done. I feel like there are less distractions in my apartment then at my desk. Who knew?

At Whole Foods on Friday I was excited to see the return of the Spooky Smores Z-Bars. I immediately purchased one and had it today on my way back home.


The 2008 version of the Spooky Smores Z-bar tasted remarkably similar to the Honey Graham Z-Bar. However, this year’s edition distinctly tastes like a smore!


There was the honey graham base with a chocolate swirl topping and tiny marshmellows interspersed in the filling. Yum!

Has anyone else noticed the difference? If not pick one up and let me know!

I zoned out in front of my computer compiling some research when all of a sudden it was almost 1:00! Time for lunch. :)


I really had no idea what I wanted, so I started throwing random items in a bowl until I got something that looked edible.


In to the bowl went:

  • Broccoli Slaw
  • Tuna
  • Honey Mustard
  • Chevre Goat Cheese
  • Raisins
  • Basil
  • Spaghetti Squash Seeds
  • Banana Peppers
  • Tomato

Once you learn what flavors work well together, random bowls like these are very easy to throw together. I had no plan in mind at first, but once I finished I had no doubt this would be delicious and it was!


I really liked using the soft goat cheese as a mixer and as always the raisins added a sweet touch. I’ve really been on a raisin kick lately, but they seriously work in almost anything.

I had the last of a bag of Kashi Honey Crackers on the side for salad dipping.
