Step 1 – Make Dentist appointment – Check!

Step 2 – Go to Dentist appointment, sit in Dentist Chair and entertain myself with twitter and camera phone – Check!


Step 3 – Take x-rays and photos of teeth – Check!


Step 4 – Consult with dentist – Check!

Step 5 – Have teeth cleaned….. no check :/

I faced my fears today and sat in a dentist chair for the first time in 2 years! My heart was racing the whole time, but I survived!

I thought I was getting my teeth cleaned, but after 1.5 hours in said chair I learned that today was actually a ‘new patient consultation.’ Bummer. Looks like I’ll be back soon though. Once for the cleaning and another to fill a couple of cavities the x-rays revealed. Have I mentioned I have bad teeth? 🙁 I swear I floss and brush my teeth every night, but that never seems to be enough.

Oh well.

When I finally made it back to my office this afternoon it was close to 4:00 and I was ready for my afternoon snack.


The Mountain Mix Mojo Bar was the perfect fuel for the Hot Yoga Class I planned to meet Caitlin at after work.

Tonight’s session of hot yoga was once again, amazing. There is nothing like a good session of hot yoga to really push one’s body and mind to the limits.

I left class a hot, sweaty mess and headed straight to the kitchen.


Basically I just threw every vegetable I had in a pan on the stove top.

  • Radishes
  • Green Beans
  • Mushrooms
  • Zucchini
  • Yellow Squash
  • Sun Dried Tomato
  • Artichoke Hearts
  • Garlic
  • Cumin
  • Chili Powder

The veggies were topped with cous cous and a naked quorn cutlet then drizzled with some soy sauce.


The soy sauce drizzle really did a great job of bringing together the flavors of the vegetables with the cous cous and quorn cutlet. Without it I think the dish would really have been missing something.


Dessert was the final piece of my Dark Chocolate Easter Bunny.


I’m exhausted – time for bed!

Well… Glee first and then bed. 😉

Good Night!
