Hey, hey, hey….look who went MIA yesterday! By the time I actually sat down last night it was pushing 10pm and I was BEAT. I’ll do my best to keep this 2 day post short and sweet!
My lovely Friday breakfast…
-1/2 cup water/USVAB
I realize it looks like a puddle of goo, but it was so good that I didn’t want it to end!
Work went by at a nice pace for a Friday. I spent part of the day calling people for interviews which isn’t a normal job function for payroll, but I welcomed the change! I broke at 11am for a Clif Mojo Mountain Mix bar;
I’m almost out of these. Thankfully I have a road trip to Buffalo planned for mid-November!
I was not feeling the gym, but didn’t want to miss it seeing as I didn’t make it there on Tuesday or Thursday so I bargained with myself. I went all out on the treadmill for a half hour and then beat it home for a bit of downtime. Yes, I live that close to the office! :)

I had packed a Fage and muesli for lunch but when I went to the staff kitchen there was lasagna, bread and salad leftover form a meeting. Pasta and bread do nothing for me, but I did forego my yogurt for a big bowl of salad with some tasty balsamic vinaigrette.
I massacred it while peeling it. I have a real problem with the pith and kept picking at it even after I took the picture, but the orange itself was worth the work!
My hubby had plans with my uncle last night so I ate a quick dinner of a grilled turkey cutlet with Ted Readers peach bourbon sauce and the last of the sweet potato fries with some honey mustard for dipping;
I swear, these taste just like frozen pudding! :D
Straight after eating I trucked the kids across town to DS’s coach’s house to pick up his warm up gear and track suit that had come in. They needed them for the game this morning, so that was a must. Then we went to the mall to buy a present for a party DS had this afternoon and to the dollar store to buy supplies to make POM POM’s for the season opener. We even checked out a Halloween store that opened up and tried some masks on. Check it out!
My hubby, the jokester, says that this is what I look like in the morning! :D Lastly, I felt I deserved a tall NF pumpkin spice misto!
We started on the POM POM making festivities as soon as we got home. It took us an hour to make 4 of them. Now, I’m not very creative, but I think we did OK! I used toilet paper rolls, streamers in the team colours and some silver tinsel for flare! Here’s DD modelling them!
We did use them at the game and they were a HIT!
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup kamut flakes
- chocolate PB2
- maple flakes
- hemp seeds
- splash of USVAB
We left for DS’s game at 10am. Thankfully most of his home games are Saturday’s at 11am. They lost 4-2, but put out a great effort. The team they were up against is in their second year of this league and were expected to win by much more. All the parents were quite impressed with our little players!
We rushed home, got some lunch in DS and then I turned around and drove him over to a bowling birthday party. With one kid down, I vacuumed, cleaned cat litter and the laundry room and had some lunch. I baked up the last of my butternut squash fries and dipped them into Dijonnaise;
Later on in the afternoon I made another batch of homemade marinara sauce. I mixed 3 cups of it with 2 cans drained tuna to make a pasta sauce. I served mine over a pack of Shiritaki noodles, feta and steamed butternut squash;
As soon as super was done I got busy making Veggie Girl’s Banana Butternut Pecan Bread;
Sorry about the flash…it’s been getting dark here at the un-Godly hour of 7:30pm! Ugh…Back to the bread! I had to make a couple changes due to what I had on hand. Pecans were replaced by almonds with pistachio’s on top and I used a 1/4 cup of butter as I’m out of oil. This is cooling right now, but I’m looking forward to trying a piece later on.
In other blog news…Zesty Cook put up a very exciting post today about a great challenge that he’s part of with Quaker and goobite.com. Go on over for a visit to see what it’s all about and vote, vote, vote for him!!! Good luck, Zesty!
That’s it for now. Bet you’re all breathing a sigh of relief! :D I hope the weekend has been going great so far for all of you…
Bye for now!!
