More Food

Hey all! How has your Thursday been? I’ve had another busy one, but it’s all good! After posting last night I warmed up some chocolate peppermint stick soy milk as a bit of a snack. 100_7615

I started the day out with my usual oats; 100_7617

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup PC 5 grain cereal
  • cinnamon
  • almond butter
  • carob chips
  • pecans


I remembered soon after arriving at work that it was the day for our office potluck lunch. More food. *sigh* My work goes kinda nuts with food this time of year. Another great spread was put out, but I didn’t get any photos this time. Here is my plate, though! 100_7634

FRUIT! A mini pita with roasted red pepper hummus, 2 pinwheels, crackers and a bit of cheese, meatballs, shepherds pie and pasta. They brought out trays of cabbage rolls later on and I had one of those, too. Everything was very good. And I kept the sweet stuff to a minimum today. Check out my “dessert”. 100_7635 100_7630

And I enjoyed a coffee laced with eggnog: 100_7637

I did bring some treats home for for the kids, though. 100_7636

To keep myself from complete data entry boredom this afternoon, I amused myself by taking pictures of my necklace. 100_7629

I bet I had 15 on my camera by the time I was done!

Needless to say, I wasn’t very hungry for supper, certainly not for sausages which were on the meal plan for tonight! Instead, I went for a salad with pecans and raspberry walnut dressing and a toasted WW English muffin with a LC wedge and a 1/4 cup of egg whites. 100_7638

After dinner we all went to DS’s hockey practice and then up to the mall where I picked up a few more presents and a birthday present for a party DS is going to tomorrow night. I bought a GREAT pair of earrings which I will photograph and post tomorrow because the flash is not doing them justice. The best part? They were on sale for $4.99. SCORE!

I think I’m going to end this here and go grab a snack because I’m feeling hungry now and dinner was long ago. I’m thinking a bowl of cereal will do the trick. Hehe!

Bye for now!!


  1. Great necklace! I am thinking I need to pick up some carob chips ... they look way too yummy in your oats.

  2. chocolate peppermint stick soy milk sounds fabulous- especially heated! Your office puts on so many holiday events- love it. Cute necklace and can't wait to see the earrings (what a steal!). Enjoy your night:)

  3. Mmm chocolate peppermint stick soy milk! I love peppermint flavors during the holiday.

    Peppermint hot chocolate from starbucks is my favorite.

  4. looks like a delicious work lunch!

  5. choco peppermint soy milk?! that sounds delicious!

    there is SO much food everywhere at work! I work in a corporate fitness center so I try to not wander the building too much because there is legit food everywhere!!

    love those gingerbread men and rice crispies for the kiddies!

  6. Can't wait to see the earrings - sounds like a great deal! Those gingerbread men are decorated so nicely! I may be a baker but I'm NOT a decorator. A 5 year old could do better than me!

  7. Pretty necklace! Food is everywhere this year for me... I think it's because I've been so concious lately about what I eat.

  8. oh i love that necklace and i'm so excited to see the earrings!

  9. Bet the kids loved those cute little treats! I still haven't made gingerbread men this year, think I might run out of time unfortunately!

  10. Oh my goodness, I used to love chocolate icy squares! (I haven't seen them in forever though!) The gingerbread men are adorable!


I'd love to hear from you!! Please leave a comment!
