Soup Salad

by Meghann on November 5, 2009

I hate to be lame, but I need to make this quick. I have an early flight to catch in the morning and I need to get some sleep. My car service will be here at 5:15am to pick me up!

Mid-afternoon I snacked on a personal packet of Dried Apricots.

There wasn’t much in the fridge for dinner, but there was some spinach that needed to be eaten up. After pulling some Pumpkin & Black Bean Soup out of the freezer I debated having soup with salad on the side, but in the end decided to combine them.

My Soup Salad topped with Pumpkin Seeds Rocked!

On the side I had a VitaTop Corn Muffin.

This flavor is still not my favorite VitaTop and one I would definitely not want to purchase again.

Maddie met her distant cousin, Lucy, tonight at puppy class.

Isn’t she adorable?!?!

Turns out Lucy’s Mama recently picked Lucy up from the same breeder I found Maddie at. Which means Lucy is a distant cousin of sorts to Maddie.

Lucy is 11 weeks old and just a bundle of energy.

All she wanted to do was play. I don’t think Maddie is used to playing with dogs smaller than her.

Tonight was Maddie’s second to last puppy class. Next week they have a graduation and I’ve been told to bring my camera. 🙂

I arrived a little early to class and while browsing PetSmart I got a little chuckle when I discovered Christmas Dog Cookies.

Tons of evil ideas were running through my head with these cookies. Just think of all the people you can trick at your next office or family Christmas party. 😉

After class I dug into two Tag Along Cookies I had packed for my drive to my parents house.

The cookies, unfortunately, were badly freezer burned and not palletable at all. Oh well.

The drive to my parent’s was quick and uneventful. Maddie is staying here for the weekend and I am going to crash here for the night.

Its only a few more hours now until I am boarding a plane to San Fran! I will have access to wi-fi on my flight tomorrow, so please be sure to check back for blogging and twitter updates throughout the flight. 🙂

Thank You Bertolli

I would like to take this time to thank in advance the wonderful people at Bertolli for sponsoring my experience at the Foodbuzz Festival this weekend. Not only do they make great suaces, but they employ great people and I can’t wait to formally meet the whole gang tomorrow.

Return of my Appetite

November 5, 2009

This week has been a strange one in terms of my appetite. I’m not sure if it was the stress from work or excitement of my trip, but my appetite has been non-existent this week. An occurrence that is highly unusual for me. However; this morning I was happy to see my appetite return with more »

Are you a Foodie?

November 5, 2009

My Friday has finally come! This time tomorrow I will be on a plane heading to lovely San Francisco. I can’t wait! This morning I was happy to squeeze in one final 6 mile run before the craziness of the weekend begins. I completed my 6 mile loop at a 9:22 pace. The weather was sadly a more »
