Whirlwind Weekend—Back To Reality

Good evening lovlies!

If you haven’t already, check out “Jenna and Kath Do Chicago: The Movie” in my previous post. For some reason, I am unable it seems to post a video + a “normal post” all together so I have to do them separately. So check it out below!

It is 10:15 here and I just got home after a loooooong day of traveling. I can hardly even believe it was snowing when I left Chicago and quite warm here! Talk about a whirlwind. This afternoon I snacked on what I have been craving for months yet could not buy before for lack of a Whole Foods: A mojo bar!!!

While checking some bloggies in the airport πŸ™‚

While on the plane, I snacked on a honey crisp apple that I also got at Whole Foods and stashed away for later.

I thought it would be a little awkward snapping pictures of apples and granola bars while flying on an airplane (people do wonder a bit), but now I find it makes for interesting conversation!!!!! People are very “into” it and think what I do is cool. Sweet! I think I am going to make some actual business cards so I feel more professional about the whole thing.

My flight was late coming into atlanta (obvi), so I RACED down the concourses until I reached A. Running through the atlanta airport is quite the cardiovascular workout, I tell ya! The only thing I saw on my sprint was a Dunkin Donuts but I was actually excited because I’ve been very interested in trying their new egg white flatbreads!

I got one with turkey sausage and am incredibly impressed. It was delicious!!!! The flatbread itself was sort of a multigrain and it was filled with fluffy egg whites, veggies and turkey sausage with reduced fat cheese. Yummy!!

Well done Dunkin Donuts. Well done.

Later, on the plane I snacked on one of Anne’s AMAZING chocolate chip pumpkin bars (resting on a new book I cannot put down!).

Seriously Anne………so good. And I’m not just saying that to be nice. I taste tons of desserts everyday and this is a winner! Tell me its a little healthy?! Haha! I must have had such a heavenly expression while chowing down on it on the plane because the guy next to me was staring hungrily at it—- so I offered him one and he loved it too!! hehe! πŸ™‚

A preview for tomorrow:

    That’s really cool to hear that people think food blogging is interesting. I always feel like if someone were watching me take food pics on a daily basis they would think it was odd, but that is probably NOT the case. Go for those business cards!!

    Seriously, they should market airport workouts! One time my brother and I had to literally SPRINT through half of the LA airport carrying all our luggage! Talk about weight lifting and great cardio! Wanna join me on this untapped fitness niche? Lol.
    That chocolate chip pumpkin bar looks incredible

    Jenna-so glad you liked the chocolate chip pumpkin bars! It’s seriously all about the Martha Stewart recipe and copious amounts of chocolate chips. I have made them every fall for the last four years because the recipe is just that great. I have tried tweaking it a little, like with Splenda Baking Blend or reduced fat/less butter, and it always turns out okay, but not great. This year I discovered that Ghiradelli semisweet chocolate chips go amazingly well, even better than Nestle Tollhouse, and I used half regular flour, half whole wheat flour (which makes it totally healthy, right?!?) And so nice of you to share! You are feeding my pipe dream of opening a little bakery/dessert shop some day…

    Hey Jenna!

    I’m delurking πŸ™‚ (Love the blog, read it daily of course!)

    I just thought I’d link you to some free business cards (because we love free over here) the only warning is that once you get them you’ll hear from them a lot but I can get over it when I look at the 250 free cards I got πŸ˜›

    Thanks for the great blog πŸ™‚
    Beck

    P.S. When are you going to do a reader meet up in DC?!?!?

    Hello Jenna! I’m glad you got home safely. It looks like you had an amazing trip! Just a quick oatmeal question. Have you ever made regular oatmeal in the microwave? You know it has directions for both on the back. I live in a dorm room and was wondering how microwaved oats would be compared to stove top?

    Hey Jenna. It was so great meeting you in Chicago. I love the Turkey Sausage egg white flatbread sammie but didn’t really take to the veggie one (reviewed both on my blog too).

    butterjessfly,

    i really don’t since it tends to explode over the top of the bowl…..if you are in a dorm room, I suggest instant oats with little or no sugar as a good substitute. That way you won’t have to deal with a horrid and messy microwave (its happened to me countless times! yuck!)
