Semi-Homemade

by Meghann on November 24, 2009

Only one more day until Thanksgiving! Yippeee!!

I’ve been watching Thanksgiving specials on the tv all evening and it has really put me in the Thanksgiving spirit. I am now officially craving Pumpkin Pie, Cranberry Sauce, Green Bean Casserole, and Turkey. Can’t wait!

Before I can start celebrating the holiday I still need to get through half a day of work tomorrow, but then I’m free!

Work today was a tad slow which is to be expected with the impending holiday. My afternoon was filled with competitive research analysis and this fabulous afternoon snack.

Blueberry Oikos + Pumpkin Granola + Pom

I really enjoyed the pom in this combination. They gave each bit a nice, refreshing crunch. πŸ™‚

After work I was able to hit up Target and find an acceptable white shirt for Thanksgiving. Also, I may or may not have picked up an outfit to wear tomorrow as well. πŸ˜‰

Now I am just trying to decide how I should wear my hair for pictures tomorrow – straight or curly?

What do you think?

Dinner tonight was semi- homemade.

I started by heating up some onion, okra, & broccoli on the stove top.

I then added this package of TJ’s Indian Fare that had been the pantry a while.

The semi-homemade combination of bulking up a prepackaged meal with veggies allowed me to finally try an item in my pantry while aiding to the mission of emptying my fridge. It was a win-win.

I paired the combination with a little cous cous and raisins.

And a Flat Out Wrap on the side for dipping. ;./

Dessert was a bit of Foodbuzz Festival Swag courtesy of Frog Hollow Farms.

I was a bit worried of the cherry element of these cookies as I am not a fan of dried cherries or cherry flavored things, but these cookies were great. They reminded me of Famous Amos cookies and no cherry flavoring could be detected. πŸ™‚

Yum!

Now, I need to finish packing, finish putting clothes away, and empt the dishwasher.

Good Night!!

Gaining Back Speed

November 24, 2009

I am running a half marathon on Sunday…..I keep forgetting that. Maybe its the fact that the race takes place the Sunday after Thanksgiving or the fact that I have been focusing on my marathon training goals, but the race keeps slipping my mind. Which is a shame because I am actually very excited for more Β»
