Hey guys –
So, Thursday was such a weird day!! I did not get around to posting a re-cap yesterday because when I got home from work and picking Ben up from work, I changed into my PJs and got right into bed at around 6:30 Thursday night!! I could not believe it – but I was 100% exhausted. Ben and I watched a couple of episodes of The West Wing (it is our favorite TV show ever) and I went to sleep really early.
But let me get back to how Thursday started! We went over to see our friends Eunice & Steve at Bread & Chocolate… I had a medium coffee with milk, and one of my favorite muffins – the Apple Sauce Cranberry muffin! The muffin was definitely a great treat. The picture of my favorite muffin looks really large, but it’s a close up. It really is not a large muffin at all – it is a perfect sized muffin! 🙂
This muffin got me through until my lunch time – which due to a super hectic day at work, was later than normal. I am not going to spend much time on the blog discussing the lunch I had on Thursday – because it was completely horrible. Just picture chicken salad, orzo, peas and mushrooms. It sounds “not bad” but some how the end result was fairly disgusting.
It’s sort of a long story – but I was running seriously behind Thursday morning and did not have time to pack my lunch or breakfast. Thus, I had to buy lunch at work. By the time I got to take lunch, there was not much selection in our caf. So I was stuck. The only thing I did consume was a few Wheat Thins and a Laughing Cow cheese wedge that I had grabbed in my mad rush out the door. Sigh.
I got back to my desk and I was still starving. (Honestly, I do not think crackers and cheese would hold over many of us… or maybe it is just me!) I was happy to see a Quaker True Delights bar in my lunch bag. This was the first time I tried the Honey Roasted Cashew Mixed Berry bar. It was really good! The berries and salty cashews really complimented each other perfectly. Take a look at all of the berries you can actually see in the bar!
I was planning on going for a run after work – but I think the lack of food paired with the really stressful and tiring day at work did me in. As I said, by the time I got home, I had no energy and opted for a good night’s sleep!
Thankfully it paid off for a pretty productive day on Friday… 🙂
