Who Doesn’t Love A Make-Over Or A Give-Away?

Posted on September 28, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Hey all!  Thanks for the kind comments on my frumpy mama pics.  You make me feel so darn good.

How was your weekend?  Mine began here.

What? You don’t spend your Friday nights in the lab…you’re such a nerd.  Actually, I look like a nerd with my hoodie all zipped up.  But, it is always so cold in there!  I have a BIG exam Monday, so wish me luck!!

After freezing my bum off, I wanted something warm and comforting.  So, I opened my freezer…and brought out some veggie soup that I had made months ago.

I wish I could remember where I got the recipe that I based this from!  I started with organic chicken stock and added carrots, celery, cauliflower, thyme, oregeno, garlic, s and p.  Once all the veggies are tender, I puree half the cauliflower.  The reason I keep it so “light” is that I freeze it and add whatever I have on hand when I defrost it.  Sometimes, I add brown rice, lentils, beans, chick’n…

Do you freeze meals to heat and assemble as needed?

On to Saturday!

Whole Wheat with Crofter’s Asia Superfruit Spread that I won on Julie’s Blog!   I won this weeks ago and I wish I would have opened it sooner.  It was awesome!  The Asia Superfruit Spread is made of Raspberries and Yumberries.  Crofter’s makes 4 different spreads using “super fruits” and they are all organic!

Snuffy had a cookie from Starbizzle to fuel her fro grocery shopping.

She only ate about 1/4 of this cookie because it was GINORMOUS.  But, have no fear, I stepped up to help her out :)

Starbucks’ baked goods are actually made with real ingredients.  So, I don’t worry about Snuffy and I treating ourselves to their delicias once in a while.

…and since I was already at Starbizzle

I brought home my favorite drink in my reusable (sp?) cup.  Notice a pattern?  Do I wear pink hoodies everyday?  Apparently, I do.  I realize as I type this that I own at least 4 that I can think of.

 

Grocery shopping day!  I picked up the usuals and a few new items. 

I am going to see what Snuffy thinks of these.

I will post her full review when she gets around to trying them.  (She has a very demanding schedule, you know ;) )

Some Emergen-C for me too

IMG_0162

My first job after moving to Ohio was at a natural food store.  Our boss would give us Emergen-C if we showed the slightest sign of illness.  I love the original flavor!

What is your first action of defense when you start to feel sick?

 

Of course Saturday needed more nut butter.  I have  been loving PB and Co’s Cinnamon Raisin Spread lately.

I think it has brown sugar added to it.  That’s probably why I love it.  But, it is amazing none the less.  This particular spread of Cinnamon Raisin PB had Naturally More underneath.  The crunch of the flaxseed in the Naturally More and the chewiness of the raisins made for a fantastic texture combination.  Yes, I have  a nut butter obsession.  But, I am not the only one.  In fact I know of two ladies right off-hand that share my love! Oh wait and a third!

 

We snacked on some fruit as well.

Celery and PB was one of my childhood faves! So, AB with celery has become my “grown up version”.

Do you still enjoy any of you childhood favorites on a regular basis?

I know, I know I said giveaway…

You may or may not know that I have been working with a fellow blogger and fantastic cook to make my blog a better place to hang out.

Well, it’s finally ready for readers!
