November 21st, 2009: going and going

Hi gang!  Last night Scott and I finished a really bad Pens game.  Please lord let them get out of this slump soon.  Crikey!  Then I crashed out in bed.

I got up this morning and after taking care of Rocky made breakfast right away.

Coffee and oatbran

Pumpkin apple oatbran and some coffee.  I was one hungry A this morning.  After breakfast one of the most glorious things happened.  I got to go to Muay Thai!  After not working out for close to a week this was a much welcomed event.  I am very thankful for heavy bags and 14oz gloves.  I told my instructors it was nice to be able to hit something again. :p

After class is when the craziness started because we had so many errands to run.  Checking the mailbox, running here and there and everywhere.  I did get a surprise in the mail today, I won something!  I put my business card in for a drawing to win a Kikkoman cookbook while I was at the Foodbuzz Fest and I won it!  It’s actually really nicely done with huge pictures and recipes that were created by some restaurant chefs.  Score!

Then we hit up Sam’s where I found a 5lb box of oats for $4!  HELL YES!  And since it’s the holidays they have one of our favorite wines back in stock.  It’s a Riesling and the bottle is huge!  I’ll take a picture of it for you soon so you can see it in all it’s glory.

Naturally I had to hit the grocery store again because I forgot something yesterday, fresh herbs!  Can’t make stuffing and turkey without them. :D  Do you ever do that, forget to get something at the store?  I try to avoid it but it never fails that when I’m holiday shopping there is always something I forget to pick up.

When we finally got back home, Scott and I were starving!  I inhaled a piece of leftover pizza too quickly to take a picture.  Sorry guys!

Here’s my quickie lunch.

Smoothie and wrap

I took some of the leftover nacho topping and put that on a Whole Foods red chili tortilla with some guac and lettuce.  I ate that soft taco style. :D

And smoothie!

  • 1C Carrot juice
  • 2C Unsweetened cranberry juice
  • Spinach
  • Frozen banana
  • Frozen blueberries

After lunch, oh I wasn’t done with my chores yet!  I changed into my best goober clothes and headed outside to pull weeds and cleanup the landscaping for winter.  I probably did that for a little over an hour. :o

Then I showered and zonked out on the couch because I was one tired girl!  I watched The Goonies while playing on the laptop, very relaxing.  Mmmm  Then I made some dinner, easy peasy style.

Since we didn’t get a chance to have fish this week due to being invaded by Teh Sickies, I made that this evening. :)

Salmon Salmon!

  • Teriyaki sauce
  • Maple syrup
  • 2 green onions
  • Garlic powder
  • Chili powder
  • Red pepper flakes
  • Sea salt

Marinade for about 10 minutes and then into the oven at 400 for about five minutes.  Delicious!

Asparagus Roasted asparagus which we haven’t had in ages!

  • Olive oil
  • Soy sauce
  • Chili powder
  • Garlic powder

Roasted at 400 for about 5 minutes as well.

Salmon, asparagus, and rice With a bit of jasmine rice on the side.  Dinner was so good and now I’m really passing out tired. :p  I’m off to watch the Pens game and hopefully they have a better night!

Till tomorrow guys! :D
