This is one of my favourite fall flavours, hands down. The Tim Horton’s by where I work put theirs out a bit early….they weren’t suppose to stock it until October 1, but I’m sure glad they did. I also tried out this Earl Grey tea this morning;
I also ate on of these before bed last night with some cinnamon honey spread on top. Yum…
As I mentioned, DD had another cross country meet today. She did SO well! She placed 34th. Not sure how many girls there were, but I know for certain that she was in the first half to cross the line. Here are the 3 pictures I snapped….at the start line, half way through and coming across the finish line…
I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a bit concerned when she finished. Her breathing was quite laboured and she said it felt like her throat was clogged. I (slowly) walked her back to her school’s area and sat her down with her water bottle and talked to her for a bit. She was OK by the time I left. She doesn’t have allergies, but something irritated her!
When I got back to the office I ate my soup that I had quickly whipped up last night. I used a ½ cup of marinara leftover from the meatballs, mixed it with 1 cup of chicken stock and a ½ cup of chickpeas. Voila…lunch is served;
A friend at work directed me to Dr. Oz’s website today. She challenged me to take the “real age” test that’s offered there. You bet I was all over that! After about 5 minutes of answering questions ranging from my weight, how many miles I will be traveling in a vehicle in the next 12 months, how many servings of veggies/fruit/grains I eat in a week, etc, my REAL AGE was calculated and given to me. Seeing as I have no problem disclosing my years, I will share with you that my calendar year is 35.5. According to the test, my real age is 30.4. Yep, I did a jig after reading that. Now, I don’t know how much stock I take in this….I truly don’t think of myself as “35”….but it was fun to do and see the result. I challenge you all to go here and take the test yourself. Leave me a comment letting me know how many years younger/older the test put you at and what you though of your results (you certainly DO NOT have to tell me your age…just the difference). Have fun!!
Seeing as DS had ANOTHER hockey game tonight, dinner was quick. At least the game was in town so we didn’t have to leave the house until 5:15 as opposed to last night’s 4:30. I baked a store bought pizza for the fam and some butternut squash fries for me;
Oh, my…these were amazing!! I had some honey mustard for dipping.
I’m being stubborn right now in saying that I refuse to buy take out whenever DS has a game over the dinner hour. That’s a money trap I do not want to fall in to. Here’s where I need YOUR help! Please let me know what your fast, somewhat healthy meals are for nights where you’re on the run. Keep in mind that they should be portable as we will be eating in the vehicle at times. THANKS!!
Miss multi tasker here tonight! Anywho, this has turned into quite the long post so I’ll sign off here…
Bye for now!!
