Not much happened today so I’ll zip through the food quickly and get to a little fun at the end. Sound good?

Here’s breakfast! IMG_1205

  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup Quaker oats
  • cinnamon
  • hazelnut/PB butter
  • granola
  • kefir


Work was pretty much payroll clean up day. I didn’t go to the gym today because I had to take a skirt to the seamstress to be let out a bit. Apparently my butt has gotten a bit wider in the 3 years since I’ve worn it. DOH! I did have a light snack to get me through to 1pm, though…a homemade granola bar! IMG_1206

Lunch was a toasted Ezekiel English muffin with egg white, a LC cheese wedge and raspberry jam. IMG_1207

This is a great combo! The weather has been nice enough to go for walks at 3pm break and we just happen to pass a Tim Horton’s when we go. We usually don’t stop but my co worker and I were both feeling like a little something today so I got an iced coffee, easy on the ice.


This went down nice and smooth!

I put a roast in the crock pot for dinner tonight so when I got home I popped it in a bowl, used 2 forks to shred it and then added hickory flavoured BBQ sauce to it. We used Flatouts for the buns:


And served it with steamed, yet still crisp, broccoli. IMG_1210

GREAT meal! Dessert was a caramel Oikos: IMG_1211

It was my last one! BOO! DS and I played some faux baseball after dinner. Home was a goalie pad, we only had 2 bases and they were old shoes, our bat was plastic and we used a tennis ball. As if that wasn’t demented enough, DS changed the rules accordingly to ensure that he came out the winner. HA!

And now for some fun! Erin has bestowed upon me the Honesty Award!


What fun! So now I get to tell you 10 honest things about me. ENJOY!

1) Although purple is my favourite colour, I hate any purple or purple coloured food, with the exception of purple grapes. And I really do prefer green ones.
2) I spend more time watching TV than I would like to admit.
3) I currently own 3 cats, but would like another. Does that put me into “cat lady” status?
4) If I have a particular treat that I’ve been looking forward to eating, I’ll hide it from the kids so I don’t have to share. *blush*
5) My job pays well, but bores me to tears.
6) My son’s hockey try outs (which he’s currently going through) are making me nervous enough to *almost* be sick to my stomach. Obviously, I don’t handle any type of stress well!
7) I am the only person at the Krista’s Kraving’s household that can not swim or skate. I bet even my cats could swim. DOH!
8) I am seriously considering another tattoo. I want to get the letter “B” in a fancy font on my inner left wrist. Read here to see the reason for this particular letter. I’ve been hesitating because I haven’t been sure if it would be appropriate for work, but in a conversation with my boss in the gym this week she told me that she didn’t see an issue with it.
9) My work may bore me to tears, but I adore my boss! And not just because of #8, either. She’s truly one of a kind amazing. (She doesn’t read this, so I’m not butt kissing! ;)
10) Sometimes I allow my kids to play on the computer/gaming systems more than I should just to have some “quiet” time. With such a busy life I find that I treasure the silence more so than I ever have before.

So there you have it! I’d love to pass this along to the follow 10 bloggers!

  1. Loved reading the fun facts! Did you find those type of flat outs in Canada?

  2. #4 kind of made me giggle! But I think I understand! :o)

  3. Ice coffee is such a great treat for summer/spring days :) :) Dinner looks fabulous. I love the crock pot...makes dinner super easy. And how fun are the facts (thanks for passing it to me ;)), that would be so cool if you got a B tattoo! You must share it with us if you do. My job bores me to tears as well..blah!

  4. Yummy eats, Krista! Your bowl of oats has me drooling. I love iced coffee in the warmer weather too! Very refreshing! Congrats on your award!

  5. i love egg sandwiches with jam!! mmmm

  6. love the truths!!! sorry your job bores you tho!

  7. I love reading facts about fun!

  8. That would be a touching tribute to Braeden if it is what you want to do. You're lucky to have a likable boss. But from a personal rights standpoint it just irks me to think that work can dictate what we're "allowed" to do to our own bodies -- (not that I'm at ALL in favor of inappropriate tacky piercings/ginormous gaudy tattoos)!

  9. Really enjoyed this post Krista!

    I had no idea about your son Braeden. Very sorry to hear about what you went through. You are such a strong person!

  10. love reading your truths!!! so funny that #5 and #8 and I didn't know that you had a tatoo!!! Woooo!!! thanks for passing it to me, I have to think about what to say now ;)

  11. I loved reading your truths. I'm so sorry to hear about Braeden, but you have a wonderful perspective on everything you went through.

    I'm sill trying to find the caramel Oikos. It looks so good!

  12. Hahah I love the truths!! I definitely hide food from my family - if I have my mind set on eating something and someone gobbles it up before me, I'm not a happy camper! I hope you do get a tattoo. Tattoos that have a special meaning are more appropriate (in my opinion) than one that someone gets just because they want to, you know? Hope you have a great Friday!!

  13. Not much happened? I would say a lot of delicious food got consumed!

  14. Hey! Thanks for the award :) I put it up on my bloggie today...

    Question...what did you go through for in the job you are currently in the job you imagined for yourself? I'm always curious about how people got their jobs lol..

    Happy Weekend!
