The Big Bag

by Meghann on August 11, 2010

I’m not what one would call a ‘light packer.’

Had to break out the big bag for my 4 day trip out west.


Umm… yeah – I need help.

I guess I could have squeezed everything in the small suitcase, but then where would all the swag have gone? And trust me – there will be swag! 😉

All I can say is thank goodness for Southwest and their free checked bag policy. That policy alone has made me a customer for life. Three cheers for Southwest!

There is ZERO food in my house and I was just too lazy to cook anything tonight. I debated stopping at a sub shop on the way home from errands this afternoon, but then i remembered these frozen Indian meals the Tandoor Chef team had sent me.


Out of the box and into the microwave it went!


I bulked the frozen meal up with some spinach, plain yogurt, and the last quarter of an avocado I had in the fridge.


The Chicken Tikka Masala was delicious! It was full of flavor and spice that paired perfectly with the cool and refreshing avocado and yogurt.


I’m actually excited to try the other frozen meals I have in the freezer. I’m not the biggest fan of frozen meals, but the indian dishes always tend to wine me over. Probably because no matter how much i try I can never exactly replicate that flavor at home. I think this is about as close as I am going to get without driving to an Indian restaurant and ordering straight from the menu. :)

For dessert a serving of vanilla ice cream with granola and dark chocolate covered edamame.


Earlier I snacked on some carrots and the last of a container of hummus.


Munch, Munch, Munch

Admit it – how many of you fell for this hoax yesterday? (In case you’ve never seen this before I would suggest checking out the full story here. Hoax or not the concept is pretty hilarious.) And for those of you who were unaware, yes it was a hoax. (Full story here) The girl was more »

A Stressed Meghann is a Speedier Meghann

August 11, 2010

I’m not sure I’ve ever woken up more ready to get up and run then I did this morning. There is something about pounding the pavement that is just so soothing. It gives me an hour to myself where I am detached from everything. It’s an hour where I can decompress, think through problems, and more »
