She’s Back

by jenna on December 17, 2008

Hi guys! happy HUMPDAY! =)

I am feeling like a totally new person today. 150 times better than yesterday, that’s for sure–thanks to tylonel pm and 8 hours of sleep yesterday! This morning I had a new oatmeal creation—reminiscent of figgy pudding ;)

The combo was 1/2 cup multigrain cereal made with 1/2 cup silk and 1/2 cup water, 1 sliced banana, 1 spoonful hazelnut butter and topped with two dried figs! I discovered yesterday that I LOVE dried figs! Adam was making bread pudding with them at work yesterday and I snagged a few. The texture and the “crunch” is addicting. I swear.

Midmorning I had my favorite—

And for lunch I had my favorite Amy’s pocket sandwich, which has been in the freezer at work for a few days and had to be eaten!

Along with a honeycrisp apple:

I’m always in awe because these pocket sandwiches are pretty low in calories (260 to be exact) yet are SO filling! Maybe its the fact that it is a hot sandwich and the filling is just sooo tasty….

I left work in a rush to make it to my hair appointment and snacked on a larabar on the way

I didn’t end up getting home until 6:30 and Christie had a Thai feast waiting….

While I was having my hair done, she went and picked up Sumo House takeout for us! We split the Basil Tofu (the same thing I had the other night but tonight she requested steamed tofu not fried in the dish), steamed dumplings and miso soup. It was delicious!!

I ate two and she ate two :)

My portion of yummy tofu

I “made” us dessert—Amy’s chocolate cake with a little coconut milk ice cream:

Here I am enjoying my Thai!

I got bangs! Wooh wooh!

Work today was incredibly busy………I was bad about taking pictures because I had to much to do and didn’t even have time for a lunch break, let alone a photo shoot :(. Please forgive me; here is some chocolate mousse

And some new SWEET potato focaccia!

I’m off to take a bath and maybe watch a movie with Christie. Tomorrow is Thursday! I move home so soon!!!!!! Christie has some 11 mile bike ride planned for us when I get off work….we will see if that really happens though. Haha ;)

Have a great night everyone!

Polly,

I actually don’t HAVE a blogroll because I have way too much stuff going on on the right side of my blog. I wish I did. Hopefully I can have one in the future and when I do I will definitely add you!

Thanks for the sweet hair comments! I love your blog!

That Thai food looks delicious! So does the sweet potato focaccia, yum!

Your hair looks good! I almost got bangs last time I went to get mine done but I chickened out.

At first I thought that was bacon on your oatmeal…which, come to think of it, would probably taste yummy!

Holy yum oatmeal combination!! **I declared my love for dried figs as well in my current post (see first video)!! :-)

Cute bangs. Love figs! I always add them to my homemade granola. A nice change from raisins or dried cranberries.

Hey Jenna! I have that same FEED bag, bought it at Whole Foods. Great cause. Also, I totally agree with you about how almost all Amy’s meals are so filling(and tasty!), yet so low in calories! Most are pretty high in fiber too! Good stuff.

caroline December 17, 2008 at 8:46 pm

Hi! I’m finally delurking to say that I love your blog!

Cute bangs! You just reminded me that I should schedule my own hair appointment – it’s been far too long.

Also, that Thai food looks delicious! What else do you recommend ordering? We have a few Thai restaurants here that I’ve been curious to try out.

I’ve never bought the Amy’s pockets because they don’t look filling at all. Glad to hear differently, and now I’ll give them a try.
