No bake baking

Hey! I went shopping today and this weeks meals should be awesome. I guess I am going through Ponzio withdraw because tonight for dinner I am making whole wheat pizza with spinach and broccoli. I am going all out and I am going to make homemade sauce too. I also got ingredients for the favorite black bean burgers. It should be a fun filled week with good eats. I also just made some larabar wannabes and some no bake p-nut butter cookies. Hopefully the cookies turn out I couldn’t find agave nectar so I used honey with a little bit of water.

Paying For It

I got to sleep in this morning. Yay!!! It felt so good. I didn’t even hear Sam getting ready and leave. So I got up and got ready to go on a run. I haven’t run in the past 3 days due to weather and just being plain old LAZY! I ran great heading towards the bridge which is .76 miles (maybe I ran a little too fast for me) but on the way back my calf’s were cramping and soooo tight. It hurt so bad to run and walk so I kinda hobbled back home. That’s what I get for being lazy. Yes, I did stretch before hand too. It was great running weather and if my calf’s didn’t hurt I felt like I could have run all day because it was so cool outside (69 degrees).

When I got home I stretched and sat out back with Bru and ate some watermelon. Do your calf’s ever get so tight they feel like they are going to explode?

Gonna miss you Charna!

So tonight we all went out to dinner, it is Charna’s last meal before she goes back to school at BU. I worked with Charna all summer and even on my days off she would come over the house to hang out and take breaks. Really going to miss SILLY. I guess that is why God made 2! She is in for a rough semester with her course load. I know she will do fine though and hopefully she will find a new partner in crime to make videos with. They are too funny and I can’t wait to see more. This is Charna goofing off at work. 0730091011a

sage

We went to dinner at this restaurant called Sage in Ventnor. (This is also where I had my Bridal shower) It was so good! To start we ordered the crispy artichoke hearts fried crisp paired with a garlic mayo dip. Sam and I both had a Caesar salad and the Capellini with garlic, tomatoes, basil and jumbo lump crab meat. MM MM GOOD!!! sage2

After dinner Sam and I went to get banana whip. Sam even let me take a picture of his food. I think he is getting used to me taking pictures now.

P.S.S. Check out Mary’s blog she is having her first giveaway of Larabars. Definitely want to get my hands on some of those.

Walk with the hubby and Bru

Last night I went to a wedding in North Jersey (Rutgers Campus) with Sam’s family. Sam didn’t go because he had a migraine due to the weather. We took a limo up which was nice and we watched the movie Hitch. I love that movie especially when he dances (the pizza, the q-tip…) Love it! The wedding was beautiful and the ceremony was short. The only down fall was that the hotel had a NO shot policy, until we found out the other bartender was giving out shots. Lets just say I had 2 shots and a lot of Vodka Gimlets. I was feeling pretty shitty on the ride home and everyone was nervous that I was going to hurl. Luckily I slept on the way home and I felt a tiny bit better. Once I got home I washed my face and took some Excedrin and hopped in bed. Woke up around 10:30- 11 and felt pretty dam good.

What a perfect couple!

What a perfect couple!

Since I got dropped off first last night Sam, Bru and I went on a 2.3 mile walk to his parents house to pick up my car keys and car. It felt great to do something today rather then just sit inside.

Also, I broke open the Naturally More peanut butter that Tim from Naturally More sent me and I must say it is the best p-nut butter I have ever tasted in my life. Sam loved the bits of peanuts and the natural oils and that it contains omegas and flax. This is precious stuff so I let Bru try a tiny bit. He is a HUGE p-nut butter fan. All 3 of us enjoyed it very much! Thanks Tim. 0830091438

Bad weather

The weather is really bad so I stayed in bed until 11 and then had breakfast. We have to leave at 3:30 for a wedding in North Jersey. Yay!!! I can’t wait should be a fun ride up with the fam. I will let you know all about it tonight or tomorrow morning. I’m sure there will be fun stories to share.

Surprise at my Front Door

I came home today and Sam told me there were 2 packages at the door. He didn’t know what they were so I asked if one had my name on it. One was for me with my name and the other was just Amazon (we get tons of amazon stuff). So I was dancing and running around my house looking for my phone. I finally found it, but Sam didn’t know why I couldn’t open it first. I had to document my first box.

REWIND:

A couple of days ago I contacted Natrurally More about there p-nut butter and almond butter. This is what I got back on my email.

Thank you for your email and interest in Naturally More peanut butter. Please email me your address and I will be happy to send you samples for your review. Please email me when you are done I will be interested to see what you think. Again thank you for your interest in Naturally More.

Regards,

Falling Behind

Where do I begin??? I was out last night so I am now checking all the blogs that I follow and I have to catch up. Still not done reading every ones yet…Bluh. So yesterday I left work early I rode the bike again so I rode between 9-10 miles. Also, I made a larabar wannabee and it was amazing!!! 0827091144

Homemade larabar

I left work early (around 2:30) went home to take a shower and then packed up the car to go to the EAGLES game. We tailgated before the game started so I ate a hot dog and a burger and there are no pictures because I was so hungry. The game was great and in the last like 7 minutes they pulled off a win. During half time I scored some dippin dots ice cream and got a nice shot of it.0827092048

We didn’t get back till about midnight so I went straight to bed. I woke up today late and made a green monster (I made Sam try it) and had some of my larabar concoction. Sam tried both and really enjoyed them and I was a bit shocked. Expecially when he wanted me to make more of the bars tonight. 0828090835

I didn’t eat the whole thing. Trust me those drinks are filling. I’m officially a green monster addict now; I only wish I had tried them sooner. I went to work today which was crazy because it was pouring rain and I got SOAKED. I walked in dripping and had to go to the bathroom to towel dry. So I waited around for 40 minutes and then decided I was not going to work today. It was Mary and my last day and Mary didn’t come in because she is going to see her grandmom who isn’t doing to well. You can check out her cool story here. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.  I came home and changed out of my wet clothes and decided today was so yucky it was going to be my rest day for the week. So I went to Sam’s work and we went to Ventura’s Offshore Cafe for lunch. This is what Sam and I both had:

PUEBLO GRILLED CHICKEN & MANGO QUESADILLA
A whole wheat tortilla stuffed with peppers, onions, cajun chicken & ripe Mexican mangos with cheddar & mozzarella cheeses served with a side of salsa & sour cream.

It was so AMAZING!!! No pictures of this, but next time I get it I will definitely take pictures. After lunch I decided to go shopping for new work out clothes. So I headed over to my favorite place TJ MAX. It was pretty busy since it was miserable outside.

Nicks mom gave me a blue knife that I love and use all the time so I found this pretty green one to add to my collection. The spatula is for my eggs since it can go up to high temps. For dinner I made pasta and asparagus and then after dinner Sam and I relaxed as the rain came down outside. We watched the first Ghost Busters (which I have never seen) and the first Karate Kid (also have never seen). So now I am going to go catch up on all the blogs and all the good stuff I have missed. Later
