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? πŸ˜‰

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! πŸ˜‰ )

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. πŸ™‚

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. πŸ™‚

Office mini-golf? I seriously need to suggest that to my co-workers. Pretty sure they’d look at me like I grew a second head though.

SO ready for Friday.

Your office is SO FUN. The one office I worked in was not that cool, not that cool at all.

I love office golf! We had a ton of golf games at our house (rediculous gifts are given when you decide to take up golf in one summer) and I brought them to the office. We play Tic-Tac-Putt regularly. I really should talk to my boss about prizes…

You really need a warning on your video:
“Caution. The video you are about to watch may cause viewer to develop severe crush on this person’s adorable fabulosity. Viewer discretion advised.”

I promise I’m not a crazy stalker though so it’s all good.

PS.. I am not sure I ever commented here before because I get intimidated on the ..ahem…what did that magazine call you…the magnificent four or some crap…LOL. anyway. Love to love ya!

Office mini golf? Sounds fun! Especially if prizes are involved. πŸ™‚

The addition of molasses sounds interesting! If I ever actually buy molasses, I think I’ll try it! πŸ˜‰

Looks like office mini-golf is fun -and- has the potential to be quite profitable, lol!

22 Lacey @ Lake Life November 12, 2010 at 7:53 pm

You have confirmed my suspicions that I need to find a new job! We’re not allowed to wear sleeveless shirts OR open-toed shoes in my office, and we get in trouble for laughing, let alone playing putt-putt πŸ™
