Afternoon Putting

by Meghann on November 11, 2010

Know how to sneak in a mini work out in the middle of the afternoon?

Play office mini golf! What a rush!


A couple of years ago my office started a Quarterly Mini Golf Tournament that has evolved into a competitive, team bonding, bi-weekly tradition of golf, good sports, and good time.


Each quarter the game changes slightly and this quarter’s game was a crazy race against the clock. My teammate and I took turns making our way to two separate ‘holes’ around the building. Our goal was to beat our opponent in both time and swings.

We were successful in the time department (hence the rush), but not so lucky in the swing department. We lost by TEN! Booo!!!

Luckily, our other team members had won the week before and since this was considered the ‘semi-finals’ we still walked away with a nice prize.


$25 AmEX GIft Card and $10 cash for participating. Sweet! If we had won this round we would have been guaranteed a prize of at least $50 each and the possibility of $100! Isn’t office mini golf fun? 😉

I drown my golfing sorrows (though secretly celebrating that I still got a prize) with a Frog Hollow Pear. (I told you I came home with a bag full! 😉 )


Dinner tonight featured another Foodbuzz Festival goodie.


This Brown Sugar Pork Rub came straight from the swag bag.


Pork? Baked tofu? Same thing, right?


I used the rub on some tofu and baked it at 420 for 20 minutes, flipped it, and baked for 20 before. I topped finished it with a little BBQ sauce.


The rub was not as sweet or strong as I was expecting. Next time I would make a paste of it with some water and let the tofu soak in that instead of going with a tofu rub. Besides that it was great.


The rub was also used to season my mashed sweet potatoes.


However, I didn’t add enough to taste it. Again, I was assuming it was going to be stronger than it actually was. :)


I steamed a handful of green beans on the side.


And reheated a Jalapeno Corn Muffin.


My final Foodbuzz Swag Bag item of the night: Ghiradelli Chocolate Squares and Dark Chocolate Edamame (not actually from the swag bag).


Chocolate makes the world go round. :)

Have you seen my video yet? Check it out. Have a laugh. Leave a comment. No pressure. 😉

Whose ready for Friday?! ME! ME! ME!


Waiting and Waiting

November 11, 2010

This is what happens when you cook one thing for lunch and fill the plate while waiting: you end up with a little bit of everything. It all started with an ‘egg in a basket’ that took deceivingly long too cook. I made a salad with spinach, tomato, mushrooms, blue cheese, and honey mustard dressing. more »

Do these shoes make me look fast?

November 11, 2010

Confession: I’m not the best runner when it comes to purchasing new running shoes. It has been months since I purchased my last pair (on July 5th to be exact) and I could definitely feel the need for a new pair. My Brooks Glycerin 8s were as great of shoes as any runner could hope more »
