Happy Thursday!

August 28, 2008

This has been a busy, but productive night!

I got home around 5:15 and looked at the internet a little. I snacked on some (too many!) honey roasted nuts. I put laundry in before running some errands – shoes to the shoemaker, dry cleaning to pick up, groceries to get. I had decided not to run, because it was dark and cold out. But after getting back from the mall, I really felt like it! I did 35 minutes on the treadmill at the gym in my building. It’s the first time that I have used the gym here and it was good – enjoyable to watch Food Network while running and I was the only one there.

I had debated on dinner – really wanted pancakes. But, since I have the day off tomorrow, I thought I’d save that for breakfast or lunch. Here is dinner:

Graham is out with friends, so it’s just me! Before eating dinner, I put some muffins in the oven. Tina at Carrots n Cake makes great looking muffins all the time and I’ve been meaning to try them. I made Pumpkin-Peanut Butter-Chocolate Muffins. Yum! My only complaint is that I under-cooked them. Ah well, they’re still very good. Enjoying my muffins and tea, while watching tennis…

On an unrelated note to food… I have started reading Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. It is so good! I have read about 60 pages so far and can’t wait to sit down with it tonight. If you’ve not heard about the series, I highly recommend getting into it!

I’ll be sure to post whatever my special, day off breakfast is tomorrow morning. Good night!

Spinning wheel…

August 27, 2008

Ahh, this is nice! Watching tennis, fixing up my blog… freshly baked muffins! I had a great day today – busy but good – until I started getting antsy around 4:15. Good thing I had spinning today! The class was great and I really felt it, being away for three weeks.

Came home and we didn’t know what to make for dinner. Pasta is always fast, and so is shrimp, so we made up a pasta. Piccata Pasta!

My dinner

I used up the last of the muffin mix, which gave me three muffins! I might eat one now, or I might have a peach. The night is still young, so I will have a snack in awhile. I feel very thirsty (have for about the past two weeks) so I do need more water! I’m parched! See you tomorrow 🙂
