Work held a “thanks for a great 2009” breakfast this morning for all staff at 9am so before I left for work at 7:30 I ate a small bowl of oats.
This was actually one packet of Quaker’s “plain” flavour with some Sahale snack mix sprinkled on top.
The breakfast itself was superb. I was totally thinking there would be potatoes and egg bakes…heavy stuff. Instead, they had a cooking instructor/caterer prepare the feast. There was yogurt;
Unpictured were egg burritos and bacon. I grabbed a chocolate chip muffin, 2 fruit kabobs and a burrito.
YUM! I ended up bringing the muffin home. DD has claimed it for her lunch tomorrow. :D There was also coffee/tea and juice, but I passed on those. It sure was a nice way to start the work day!
Anybody out there with dry, chapped hands this winter? Mine are awful, but I found a cream at WalMart a few weeks ago that has helped considerably. It called “Dr. Teal’s Chapped Hand Cream”. Here are a few “before” shots of my hands:
See how cracked and wrinkly they are? Gross. Here they are after a week of using the cream daily while at work:
Just ignore my ring lines!!! Much better, no???
No gym for me today. I had an embarrassing amount of laundry piled up that I started before work and went home to continue. When I did get home my Lululemon hoodie that I bought on ebay was there! Check it out…
I adore this. It’s so warm and comfy.
When I arrived home from work yesterday I was greeted by this:
What was inside, you ask? CHEESE! Allergo cheese to be exact. The company was more than generous with the samples they sent.
There’s Probio 7% soft cheese in the bottom left. Under that is 4% white cheese slices and to the right there is 4% herbs and spices and a block of 4% mozzarella. I’m eager to try all the different kinds and will be writing up a separate post in the near future with my thoughts and opinions. They even sent a booklet with some neat recipe ideas.
I had some time when I got home from work to get some baking in the oven. I made Mama Peas Vegan Almond Joy Cookie Bars.
I cut the batch into 16 pieces once cooled a bit. See end of post to find out what I thought!
I pulled out the George Foreman tonight to cook some pork chops. 6 minutes and the meat was ready to go! I also steamed some broccoli which we sprinkled with this new seasoning that I bought Monday night;
I ate one of the above bars for dessert and OMG! TO. DIE. FOR!!! Mama pea ROCKED this recipe! I couldn’t stop my hand from reaching over to the counter, grabbing a second one and shoving it in my face. So good! Then I had to leave the kitchen so I didn’t start “cleaning up the crumbs”. I guarantee you that these won’t last long in this house.
I’ll be leaving in 20 minutes to take the kids to swimming lessons…AKA…quiet time for me. *sigh* Two more days to the weekend!!!
Bye for now!!
