Wednesday night

Hi All –

I guess I’m nearly caught up now. I worked late tonight – so my running / workout schedule is totally messed up for this week! Hopefully I will get back on track tomorrow.

For dinner tonight I decided to make a salad.  The salad consisted of spinach, broccoli (my favorite!), cherry tomatoes, carrots, and tuna.  I added croutons and my favorite Newman’s Own Lighten Up Low Fat Sesame Ginger Dressing (I like this dressing soooo much).

Here is a photo of my Tupperware after I traded cookies with my colleagues. Now I have to figure out what to do with a container full of cookies in my house! Hopefully I will not end up eating all of them.

Besides enjoying our salads for dinner tonight – I spent a good deal of time in the kitchen this morning making two loaves of Amish Friendship Bread because my starter was ten days old. I now have four bags of starter… three to give away.  Well blog readers – if any of you would like a starter, just let me know! There are three up for grabs 🙂

I just tasted the bread – and it is very good! Of course I added more spices than my original recipe called for – but it totally made the bread even better! I added cinnamon, ginger, and pumpkin spices! Yum!

Well – I’m going to sign off for now. Hope you all had a great hump day!
