Too Many Meetings

by Meghann on January 27, 2009

Today has been crazy at work. I was in non-stop meetings and had projects of my own to work on in between. We have an important meeting to prepare for the week I return from Colorado, so I am trying to get all of the stuff I need for that done before I leave.

I am sorry about the lack of lunch updates and e-mail responses, but hopefully my week will calm down soon. I am ready for vacation!

I really despise not having a camera. ๐Ÿ™ Luckily Caitlin is letting me borrow her old camera until I get mine fixed. I am picking it from her tomorrow, so bare with me until then!

Between meetings this morning I thankfully had time for a quick snack. I don’t know what it is about meetings that make me so hungry? I did enjoy a Pumpkin Pie Kashi Granola Bar… sooooo good!.

Lunch was one of those fun hodge podge combinations that involves all of the different foods I was dreaming about at work. Again my photos are courtesy of PhotoBooth. Which, Melissa, is the web camera photo program on Macs. ๐Ÿ™‚

I toasted an Arnolds Thin, coated the two halves with Cashew Butter and topped with Apple Slices. On the side I had the remaining Apple Slices, Broccoli, and 3 squares of Jalepeno Cheese.

Sounds like an odd combination, but I really enjoyed it. Would you believe me if I told you the jalepeno cheese went great on the cashew butter/ apple combo? Trust me it did!

Again, more meetings, more projects and more documents I had to piece together in the afternoon. Before my 4:00 meeting (which lasted until 5:45 :-/ ) I had a serving size of Harvest Whole Wheat Crackers.

I had plans on taking Blue a for spin after work, but since the meeting ran so long I didn’t have time. Bummer.

I got home starving and seriously spent the whole last half of my meeting dreaming about dinner. Ideas flew through my head on how I could use up my veggies before I fly out this weekend and I came up with a simple veggie salad to go a long with another thing that was on my mind… a Flat Out Calzone!

I cooked up a Turkey Italian Sausage and added some Marinara Sauce. I covered half of a Flat Out Spinach wrap with the saucy mixture and topped with about a 1/4 cup of Mozzarella Cheese. I then folded it over like a Calzone and baked at 350 for 5 minutes. It was great!

On the side I shredded some Carrot and Zucchini, which I mixed with Tomato, Green Onion, Garlic Salt, Oregano, Thyme, Balsalmic Vinegar, & EVOO. It was a very flavorful, unique veggie salad.

Then of course for dessert I had a small Brownie and a bite sized Chocolate Chip Ricotta Cookie. Yum!

Keep up the great work Ladies (and Gentlemen)! We are now up to a total of $1,125.96 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society!! WOO HOO!!

I Needed to Run

Thank you all of your support in my post last night. I wrote it in a very passionate state and re-reading it realized I may have been a little harsh to the Geek Squad people. I realize they were just doing their job and probably deal with upset girls on a regular basis. Thanks for more ยป
