Time to Unwind

by Meghann on March 27, 2009

Fridays are the best. I get to sleep in, leave work at a decent hour and go for a bike ride. Seriously what could be better? Well I’ll throw in some Twilight Commentary on DVD for a little icing on the cake. 🙂

Luckily the rest of my afternoon at work flew by and I was able to fuel up for my afternoon bike ride with some Jalapeno Cheese and Harvest Wheat Crackers.


Gotta love those Cheese and Crackers. 🙂

Unfortunately when I left work around 4:00 the lovely sunshine that had been bursting at the seams earlier was no now hidden by gray puffy clouds. Not cool! I debated not risking getting stuck on the trail in the rain, but the more I thought about, the more I realized the rain was not going to kill me.

I ended up enjoying 12 miles on my bike and the rain luckily never escaped from the scary clouds. 🙂

After got home from my bike ride around 7:00 I realized the great big experimental dinner I had plan was not going to happen. I was hungry and lazy. Instead I went with a quick ‘lunch’ like dinner that was tasty and ready in less then 20 minutes.


I have had cans of Tuna in my pantry forever so I put one to use in my wrap tonight with my version of a tuna salad.


For the Tuna Salad I combined:

  • 1 can of Tuna
  • A squeeze of Honey Mustard
  • A squeeze of Spicy Brown Mustard
  • Garlic
  • Banana Peppers
  • Tomatoes
  • Mushrooms
  • Blackened Seasoning
  • Mixed Sprouts

With the wrap I baked up some Rutabaga Fries.


I seasoned the Rutabaga with Blackened Seasoning & Salt then baked in the oven at 415 degrees for 20 minutes. I also had some Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce for dipping.

And a little pickle.


It was a great meal for lunch or dinner.

Dessert were 2 of Danica’s Mock Tag-A-Longs.


Mmmm…. it’s going to be hard to get tired of these. 🙂

Now I’m off to obsess about Twilight and hit the hay early for my 7:00am 15 mile run tomorrow. Is it sad that I look forward to having my Friday nights in so I can wake up super early on Saturday mornings for long runs? Is anyone else crazy like me?

Good Night!

Tonight’s Baker Spotlight…

I was very excited when Mara from What’s for Dinner contacted me to let me know she would like to participate in my Blogging Bake Sale. I admire her blog so much and her daily Facebook Status updates always make me smile.

Mara has been hard at work in her kitchen finding the perfect thing to put up for auction and I have to say I am even impressed with her entry on the lovely baked goods she decided on. Check the entry out here! AND if you want proof her loaves ship beautiful check out Hallie’s review at Healthy Twists, you won’t be disappointed. 🙂

Happy Friday! Don’t you love it when the week just flys by? I think the key to a fast week is to plan fun activities during the week night to keep you entertained and distracted before the weekend. This week I had a TnT Social on Monday, dinner with Kristen on Tuesday, a walk & more »
