photo failure

Today was not the best photo day for me.  I relied on my iphone a bit too much, but I did snag this shot of our Friday afternoon snacks at the office while my boss was away from the table.  


I had 6 crackers and probably 1-1.5 oz of yummy smoked gouda.  And a small glass of wine.  Look at that knife!!!  Haha, we really need to work on our tools for these little events.  🙂  I didn’t eat my Clif Nectar for a snack because I was anticipating the wine/cheese Friday tradition.  However, in hindsight the bar might not have been a bad idea because I wouldn’t have been tempted to eat quite as many crackers…  Oh well.  It was tasty!  🙂

When we got home we had a package waiting on our doorstep.  If any of you have younger siblings you will be familiar with this scenario.  A month or so ago we got an email from Brian’s mom explaining that Bri’s little bro was having a fundraiser at school.  We had a catalog of things to choose from, and wound up ordering some wrapping paper and these little beauties.


Considering that we paid $15 for 10 little 1″ x 1″ toffee squares I couldn’t resist eating one of them, but I’m happy to let Brian finish off the box cause they are calorie heavy.

And now for the real photo tragedy.  I was so rushed taking my dinner pictures that I didn’t realize that my memory card was not in my camera.  😦  So sad.  I’ll tell you about dinner, but you’ll have to picture its loveliness in your head.

Dinner:  Chicken tenders a la coffee talk with sauteed garlicky collard greens and roasted parmesan cauliflower.  The tenders were good, I did half the batch with honey mustard dressing and the other half with bbq sauce.  I baked the tenders for about 20 minutes, smeared them with sauce, then broiled them for about 3 minutes on each side.  Watch closely though, every oven’s different and they could burn quickly! The collards were great as always…love me some greens.  And the cauliflower was okay.  Brian really liked it, but I thought maybe I put a bit too much parmesan on it, it was a little rich for me.  I only ate about a 1/2 cup.

I realized my camera mistake by the time I fished some dessert out of the fridge: Kozy Shack rice pudding with frozen blueberries again.  This was the one photo I could have done without since it looks exactly like last night’s dessert!  


Tomorrow is a big day!

  1. I am making our grocery list for Thanksgiving!!!  We’re going to pick up the non-veggies tomorrow during our normal grocery shopping trip, then pick up the veggies Tuesday or Wednesday.  I am so excited for Thanksgiving, I’ll give details tomorrow of our plans. 
  2. I figured out my BSI recipe tonight!  I’m going to try it out tomorrow, but I need to pick up a couple of things at the store…
  3. Week #4 of the training program!  Saturday is long run day…our long run is up to 1.75 miles, we’re slowly creeping up there!  Because it is going to be so cold tomorrow at 8am when the group meets, Brian and I decided to wait and go on our own at noon.  It will be a balmy 37* then so I’m sure we’ll be out on the road in shorts and tank tops…. Kidding.  🙂

Do any of you have big weekend plans?
