Lazy Dinner

by Meghann on January 12, 2010

Over the weekend I had a little present from Kashi waiting in my mailbox for my enjoyment.


The granola bar was from one of their nation wide free sample contains they conduct once a quarter. (Marketing geniuses I tell you!)

I’m sure the adorable box was meant to be opened in a very eloquent way that resulted in the ability to read the Kashi information waiting inside.

Unfortunately I am not that patient.


All I really cared about was the granola bar waiting for me inside anyways. πŸ˜‰



I’ve actually had the Trail mix bar before and it was nothing new. It was still the yummy and satisfying granola bar I have come to expect from the great people at Kashi. πŸ™‚

Thanks Kashi for putting on the wonderful campaigns that you do! Feel free to keep sending the nation free samples of your wonderful products!

After work I headed straight to my massage and enjoyed 50 minutes of pampered bliss. My masseuse was great at alleviating most of the tension from my shoulder and working out the kinks in my legs.

Apparently I wasn’t the first Disney marathoner to see her today and she said that my legs were ‘not bad’ for just having run a marathon. If my legs ‘aren’t bad’ then I would hate to be in the shoes of other marathoners out there recovering right now!

I had a few errands to run after the massage. I was tired and cranky when I finally started heading home. All I wanted was to enjoy dinner and a hot cup of tea on my couch.

Thank god Publix is a stone throw away from my apartment. I ran in an quickly grabbed some sushi to go.


Publix sushi was my life saver!


I had about 1/2 of this shoreline combo


And enjoyed every bite of the calamari salad.


This was my first time grabbing the calamari salad and I have to say I think its a new favorite of mine. It was salty, meaty and delicious.

Dessert was a serving of egg nog ice cream and a crumbled candy cane joe-joe on top.


Right now I am working on my race plan for the remaining part of the year. Can you believe I am already antsy to run another marathon?!?! Don’t worry I have some other goals in mind too. πŸ˜‰ Stay tuned tomorrow morning to see what I come up with!

Good night!

If I lived next to a publix or any grocery store, it’d be soo dangerous for my wallet lol

Easy dinners are sometimes the most satisfying! πŸ˜€

Can’t wait to see your race plan! πŸ™‚

Sushi is always my go to lazy dinner. Usually it would be after hitting the gym from 6-7pm. (The gym happens to be right next door to Stop ‘n Shop)

8 Heather January 12, 2010 at 11:12 pm

Grocery store sushi is the best idea ever. Can’t wait to hear your plans!!!

Race photos are up. I admit to being totally creepy, but i looked at all my favorite bloggers’ pics — you look gorgeous in your pics! Unfair! How do you look so good while you are running a freaking marathon? The posed picture with the medal is so amazing; you have to order it.

I hate when life intereferes with the bliss of a massage. If I were rich I would hire a masseuse to give me a massage at least once per day.

11 Jessica @ The Process of Healing January 12, 2010 at 11:21 pm

Marathons seem like they would be addicting.. I know i’m itching to run one or at least SOMETHING after seeing all of you amazing ladies do it! I’m excited for you!

Sushi is the best. And Kashi is really great, their products are usually top quality and fantastic tasting. Their granola bars are my favorites (next to Glo Bars πŸ˜‰ )

12 Erin January 12, 2010 at 11:21 pm

Smart move getting a well-deserved massage. πŸ˜€

13 Heather @ The Single Dish January 12, 2010 at 11:32 pm

You are a runner! You caught the bug…just signed up for my 1st half marathon, very excited!

14 Jayce January 12, 2010 at 11:37 pm

Congrats on the massage – you earned it! πŸ™‚

I lived in Orlando for 5 years during college, and it seems like every place I lived had a Publix right across the street. Loved it.

Love grocery store sushi for those lazy days!

16 Lisa (bakebikeblog) January 12, 2010 at 11:41 pm

ooooh I love sushi! Such a perfect dinner / lunch on the go thats for sure. The calamari salad looks great too πŸ™‚

17 Sarah January 12, 2010 at 11:53 pm

Be careful not to run too much, too soon! That’s an easy way to get injured!

18 Karla January 13, 2010 at 12:07 am

Yummy looking!

I must admit I love Publix sushi. I used to get it about once a week, but haven’t in a while. Now you’ve got me craving it!

20 Mandy January 13, 2010 at 12:40 am

Sushi isn’t my goto dinner, mostly because i can’t get it that close by, and normally there’s something at home i could make instead of making the trek if there’s little time. But it is my FAVOURITE dinner. I think i’ve had sushi every birthday for the past 5 or 6 years, and i still haven’t gotten bored of it.

21 Chelsea January 13, 2010 at 12:59 am

That sushi looks GOOD.

22 Heather @ The Joyful Kitchen January 13, 2010 at 1:14 am

you’re ready for another marathon?!?! that’s so awesome πŸ™‚

love the dessert, might be a bit jealous right now πŸ™‚

23 Hallie January 13, 2010 at 1:48 am

Are you on an email list or something so you know when Kashi is doing those samples? I swear I never hear about it until it’s too late πŸ™‚

24 Courtney January 13, 2010 at 3:15 am

You always have the nommiest ice cream. :]

25 zestycook January 13, 2010 at 8:28 am

Loving the easy dinner! That Kashi bar looks really good!

26 Shannon January 13, 2010 at 8:48 am

I’m glad you treated your legs to a massage. If a marathon doesn’t entitle a person to have a massage, I don’t know what does!

27 Matt January 13, 2010 at 9:02 am

I hope you go for NYC πŸ˜‰ Total blogger meet up there!

28 inmytummy January 13, 2010 at 9:28 am

You should run the ING Georgia marathon in the end of March!

I’ve never tried Publix’s calamari salad. I did try their seaweed salad once and it was gross.

29 runningaroundnormal January 13, 2010 at 9:48 am

Oooh, a massage sounds awesome right now! I just my book one this week, too. That sounds like a perfect quick dinner after a long day!

30 Beth January 13, 2010 at 3:24 pm

The calamari salad is my favorite too – it is perfect with the sushi! I might have to have that for dinner tonight πŸ™‚

31 jenngirl January 16, 2010 at 11:15 am

I agree, Kashi is a pretty awesome company, I can’t say that I’m ever disappointed with their products.

So jealous you have a Publix near you! One of my favorite parts about summer vacations in Florida is that we get to do all of our shopping at a Publix for a week! haha I know i’m pathetic πŸ˜‰
