Tomorrow is Friday

by Meghann on January 21, 2010

As I was driving home from work this afternoon only one thought was going through my head – ‘Tomorrow is Friday!’ I’ve worked late every night this week and the weekend just can’t come fast enough!

This afternoon was a super busy one for me. I had a meeting that ran long and by the time I got out the only thing on my mind was the yogurt and granola waiting for me in the fridge.

Granola + yogurt = my lifesaver!

I think I polished the yogurt off in about 10 seconds flat. It was good and I needed the fuel. 🙂

There were a ton of left over cooked lentils in my fridge screaming to be made into something healthy and delicious. With a little help from a few fridge staples I was able to do just that.

Sloppy Joes!

Meghann’s Easy Lentil Sloppy Joes

  • Cooked Lentils
  • Carrot
  • Onion
  • Tomato
  • Ketchup
  • BBQ Sauce
  • Honey Mustard

In a skillet cook the onion, carrot and tomato until the carrots go soft. Then add the lentils and douse with bbq sauce, honey mustard, and ketchup until the flavor is right.

See, easy peasy!

When in a pinch honey mustard, bbq sauce, and ketchup are always my staple sauce ingredients. 🙂

While the sloppy joes were cooking on one side of the stove I had yuca steaming on the other.

I steam the yuca until it starts falling apart and then coat it with the tiniest bit of butter.

Delicious.

Chocolate for dessert, anyone? Yes, please!

Seriously needed these two pieces!

One big perk to my day was the new calendar I made in iPhoto that arrived this afternoon.

iPhoto produces the best calendars. They’re high quality, have great coloring, and look fabulous. After making one for a few relatives (and Derek) for Christmas, I had to make one for myself.

Its the perfect addition to my new space.

The quicker I get to sleep, the quicker tomorrow will come and the quicker the weekend will be here!

Good Night!

Double Dose of Bulgar

January 21, 2010

This morning I had what I would consider perfect running weather. Temps in the 60s, a slight breeze, and medium humidity. The great weather made my 6 miles feel like nothing. I maintained a 9:00 minute pace and returned to my apartment just a tad bit sweaty. Of course as soon as the sun rose more »
