A celebration!

Today was my first day back at work.  It's always hard after a break but coming back from being sick is better than from vacation because you weren't having fun on your off days! Due to my medicine I had to break my breakfast into two parts.  First I had this wonderful yogurt.  It's new at my store.  It seems to have replaced Oikos.  It's just as tasty and they all have a buy two get one free coupon on top!  Score! 
Breakfast part two was Kashi Go Lean Waffles with Nutella.  Yummy!  I love Nutella.  I know it's not super healthy but a girl needs a bit of fun in her life!
Lunch was leftovers from last night's dinner.  Pork tenderloin that was cooked in the crockpot with Mrs. Dash, Cumin, black pepper, and cinnamon rub.  Brown and wild rice mixed with white corn.  Cheddar jack cheese and sour cream as a topping.  I brought Tupperwear container that I bought from my cousin Jess.  There is a removable segment for cold stuff (cheese and sour cream) and the rest you pop the lid on, pop up the vent, and microwave. 
My good friend Jessi has been on a quest to lower her blood pressure.  We had planned a celebration dinner for after her doctors appointment today.  Happily Jessi worked super hard and got her numbers down!  YAY Jessi!  To celebrate we went to Pies and Pints...I'm an addict.  I did decide to try something I've never tried before today.  I got the Rustica White pie.  It has ricotta, mozarella, salami, artichoke hearts, and kalamata olives.  Not as fabulous as my usual Grape or Cuban but mighty good!  Todd got the pineapple, bacon, and feta pizza.  Also delicious!  Now I have leftovers for lunch!
I'm so frustrated that I keep getting sick.  It seems like I eat healthier and exercise more than at least 80% of the people I know so I don't know why I can't stay well!  Also oddly enough the doctor told me to avoid eating things with Vitamin A.  I thought Vitamin A was good for immunity?  Sad because I have so many pumpkin and squash recipes I want to make...


  1. being sick is the pits! nutella is sooo soo good. it is def. a dangerous thing forme to have in the house :) i wish i lived there, that pizza always looks so good.

  2. Glad you were back to work! I'm gonna try to get Aaron to get some Pies & Pints tonight to eat while we :(

  3. Your eats look so good today!

    Just a note, do you touch your face, eyes, or nose during the day? That is the quickest way to get sick. My hubby touches his nose a lot and he gets sick a lot. I am pretty paranoid about that whne I am outside of the house.
