Digging into the Easter treats

by Meghann on April 5, 2010

Is it really Monday already?

My weekend was full off too many good things, it’s a shame it has to come to an end so quickly.

In case you missed it:

After all that I didn’t take one nap the whole weekend!

Though I did get a chance to sleep in this morning.

I see the pool in my near future, so I took advantage of working out in the afternoon and gave myself an extra hour of sleep. It was lovely. 🙂

I could hardly wait to break into some of my Easter basket treats for breakfast.


Namely the currant scone and pumpkin nut bread.


Wowza! It was everything I had hoped for. Sunch a shame Sunshine Bakery isn’t down the road from me… of maybe that’s a good thing. 😉

With my bread items I made a bowl of yogurt and fruit.


  • Chobani Pomegranate Yogurt
  • Strawberries
  • Ground Flax
  • Chia Seeds



The countdown is on until the user group conference I’ve been planning over the past few months. T-minus 48 hours until we land in New Orleans and I still have so much to do!

Better get on it!

Oohh the pumpkin nut thing looks lovely! I want some 😀 I love scones too – my aunt makes brilliant ones. What an amazing breakfast…! Have a good day 🙂

I was considering breaking into my easter basket too! But it’s all chocolate, so I thought I’d wait for lunch 🙂

Scones I could do without, but that pumpkin bread looks tasty.

I had to stop reading your post once I got to the pig pics, but it sounds like you had a great Easter 🙂 It was just a little much for me!

Hi! I have been reading your blog for a while now but have never commented. I decided I needed to comment after reading all about your first ultra. You MUST MUST MUST read the book: “Born to Run” by Christopher McDougall. It is my favorite book in the entire world, and to make it even better, a good friend of mine is in it! Jenn Shelton is an ultramarathoner who worked with me as a lifeguard in Virginia Beach. I really think you would LOVE this book! If you decide to read it, please post about it! Keep up the amazing blogging girl 🙂

I’m forwarding the pig roast post to Ben. I might regret that because he will totally want to try that now though…

17 Jenna April 5, 2010 at 11:51 am

New Orleans is my favorite city -I am beyond jealous! 🙂

The bread looks delicious!!!! New Orleans, how FUN! I am super jealous of your life.

23 emeraldelegance0702 April 5, 2010 at 2:17 pm

That doggy you are holding up looks just like Wishbone!! I used to watch Wishbone on PBS after school back in the day…cute!

24 Rachel April 5, 2010 at 3:28 pm

Yummm! I love yogurt and fresh fruit. That pumpkin bread also looks moist and delicious, but I could do without the nut 😛 Hope you have a great day and that it isn’t too stressful with the build up to the conference!

25 runnerforever April 5, 2010 at 3:46 pm

Yes, it really is Monday…so sad huh. Pumpkin bread to start off the week isn’t half bad though!

26 Ali April 5, 2010 at 5:46 pm

Yum! I love chia seeds in everything!

27 Amanda @ Cakes and Ale April 6, 2010 at 8:30 am

Pumpkin nut bread… so good! I just made some pumpkin almond oat muffins for my breakfasts this week… I’m sad that it’s almost no longer pumpkin season! I guess maybe I should go to the store and see if I can stock up on some puree before it’s too late?!
