I went down to Bakersfield this  weekend for my 10 year high school reunion.  It was fun but I over-indulged and had a 2 day hangover!!!  You know you’re getting old when your hung over for 2 days.


Lisa and I have been friends since 7th grade!

I woke up at 5:30 this morning but there was no way I could workout.  I felt like I was going to toss my cookies (again) so I took it easy today but will be back at it tomorrow.

I made a great dinner tonight!  Quick and easy and the whole family enjoyed it.  I took 2 salmon filets and put lemon juice, salt and pepper on them and baked them in a 450* oven for ~20 minutes.  I made whole wheat orso and chopped up some marinated artichoke hearts, capers, lemon juice, spinach, s+p, and parmesean (YUM).  And then I just blanched some brocolini.  It took me 20 minutes to makeand was delish!

After dinner I got a whole chicken with parsnips, potatoes, carrots, and onions ready for the crockpot tomorrow.  The chicken has a spice rub on it overnight and then I’ll stick it in the crockpot in the morning.  I’m very excited to use the temperature probe function in my crockpot to insure that I will not come home to overcooked chicken-SO COOL!

Here’s what today’s food looked like:

B: Jamba Juice (small) Mega Mango

S: Oatmeal with banana on top

L: Soba with fish broth and chicken breast

S: An apple with peanut butter sample from Whole Paycheck and a peice of dark chocolate

D: Described above


Tomorrow’s food:

B: Larabar

S: Protein Shake

L: Leftovers from tonight’s dinner

S: Apple an nuts

D: Crockpot chicken and veggies


Do you see a theme?  I’ve been OBSESSED with popcorn.  I started making it on the stove again, just like my Mom used to do and it is A.MAZE.ING!

But, my aunt gave me some funny popcorn this weekend.  It’s a popcorn still on the cob.  It looks like this:


You put it in a paper bag (I don’t have any of those paper bags that I used to take to school everyday so I just cut the top off of a grocery bag and put it in there:


Fold the top over on the bag and stick it in the microwave:


5 minutes on the microwave, start it, and then listen. When there is 3 seconds or more between pops, stop the microwave. You get this:


The best part? The kernals that didn’t quite pop off the cob-they’re really thick and just yummy:


I like the pan made popcorn better but this was fun!
