I was on fire at work today! I got so much done and feel so accomplished about it now. I hope to continue the memento tomorrow because I’m off Friday and then again on Monday for Canadian Thanksgiving.
- 1 cup coffee
- 1/3 cup sunrise blend with quinoa
- carob chips
- chocolate honey
- almond butter
So, so good!
The other was eaten after lunch.
Can you believe that the part of Rach today that I was most excited about, the Hungry Girl segment, was the one that I missed? It was aired during the 15mins that I had to get cleaned up and back to my desk. Boohoo!

Lunch was pretty much the same as yesterday’s supper. I sandwiched an Yves burger between 2 corn cakes. I also added some chipotle mustard for some pizzazz;
Some of these babies were 2 biters! A co worker noticed them as she walked past my desk and thought that I was eating a bowl of plums! :D
When I got home from work I tidied the house up some and then got to work on some pear sauce. I took home a beautiful bag of pears from the farm on Sunday and used 8 big ones for the sauce. Here’s my method for the sauce;
- Peel and finely chop 8 large, ripe pears
- Put into a heavy bottomed sauce pan with 1 tbsp of cinnamon, 2 tbsp of agave, a 1/4 cup of dried currants (or raisins) and a splash of water
- bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for a 1/2 hour
- lightly mash pears until you get the consistency you want. We like our chunky
- remove from heat and let cool. It will thicken a bit as it cools off
I eat this straight up, mixed into yogurt or oats, as a muffin/loaf topping (or add in). My hubby enjoys it with a big glob of Cool Whip or over vanilla ice cream.
I was lucky to get this!! Out of the whole pie I ended up with 1.5 pieces. My boys LOVE pie so it doesn’t last long around here. I likely eat some of that pear sauce later on. Straight up….nothing added to change the flavour, me thinks.
I’ll be off now to read all your fabulous blogs! Have a fun night…
Bye for now!!
