a little queasy

Happy Friday!  I hope you all had a great end to your week.  I’m still not feeling so great.  Its a good thing I piddled around with this post while at work today, otherwise you’d probably just see a series of photos with no explanation!  I came home from work and laid down for an hour, which helped, but I’m looking forward to going to bed shortly.  I’m sorry my eats have been a little blah these last couple of days…

For breakfast this morning the hubb and I met our good friend Amy for our Friday morning tradition at Blue Grass Grill.  I’ve raved about this Charlottesville spot before, and I’ll rave again.  They have the most amazing breakfast options, and this morning’s was my favorite.  Sadly, I have no pictures, so I’ll try to describe with the best of my foodie lingo.

Breakfast:  Imagine this…a bed of perfectly roasted potato hashbrowns topped with spinach, tomatoes, mushrooms, feta and mozzarella cheeses.  Stick the whole dish in the oven and broil until the cheese is perfectly melted, bubbly and browned in a couple of spots.  Oh. my. goodness.  I ate the whole thing.  I also ate 1/2 of the perfect honey wheat biscuit that comes as a side, with blackberry preserves.  It was definitely an indulgent breakfast.  There were healthier options, like the veggie egg white omelet without cheese that I had last time we were there, but I just could not say no to this skillet.

Luckily, lunch was nice and healthy.  Remember this spaghetti squash from last night?  I thought about using him in our Mexican Dip, but was vetoed by the hubb.  So instead, 1/2 the squash went into a pyrex container with a mish mash of other eats to make my lunch today.


Lunch:  Roasted spaghetti squash, steamed broccoli and leftover lentil salad (the last of it!).


Even though I had a big breakfast this morning, when the clock struck 12:30 my body was ready to eat. This is a big pyrex container, 8″ x 6″ x 2″.  That’s 1/2 a spaghetti squash, 1 cup of lentil salad and 1 broccoli floret.  Apparently I wasn’t as hungry as I thought because I only ate about 1/2 the contents. I thought about having the rest as an afternoon snack (or second lunch) but just wasn’t feeling it.  My tum’s been a bit iffy today, perhaps all of the cheese last night and this morning?  You’d think I’d learn…but I love my cheese too much.

Afternoon Snack:  Cashew Cookie Larabar.


This was my first experience with the cashew cookie flavor.  The taste was great, but it was drier than other Larabar flavors I’ve tried…more crumbly.  Has anybody else tried this bar?  Was mine a textural dud?  The peanut butter cookie flavor I had last week was SO much better, much softer and more cookie-like.

For dinner I was planning on making Tofu Veggie Masala, but the last thing I wanted to do when I got home was cook.  When I woke up from my nap, my hubb had ordered the perfect dinner to help my sore throat and queasy tummy…Egg Drop Soup.

Dinner:  Egg Drop Soup with some crunchy noodles and an Egg Roll.  It wasn’t my egg drop soup, but it still hit the spot.  🙂


I’m feeling better than I was earlier, but I’m going to head to bed so that I can get a good night’s sleep before my 5 MILE RUN tomorrow!!!  I can’t believe that tomorrow morning I will be at the halfway point in my 10-miler training!!!  WooHoo!!!

  1. Maybe you did get a fauly bar because the Cashew Cookie I know I so moist and just plain tasty!!

    But the PB one is better 😉

  2. I love the Cashew Cookie flavor! You may have gotten a dud, or maybe I just don’t notice that it’s drier….

    I hope you feel better for your run tomorrow!

  3. Cashew Cookie is my fav — and it is sort of dry, depending.

    Enjoy your run tomorrow!

  4. I think its egg night in the blog world, this is the third one I’ve seen! I can’t wait to see your tofu masala recipe, though.

    I hope you feel better soon, especially in time to rock that 5 miler in the morning!

  5. i love the cashew cookie lara! and i love spaghetti squash too.

  6. Those Larabars look amazing, I’m so jealous. We don’t have them in the UK

    Wishing you a fabulous run today, girl!!

  8. I love your bowls! They are so pretty.

    Yum, spaghetti squash!

    I hope you feel better!!

  9. “Has anyone else tried this bar?”

    Um, that’s like asking me if I’m still alive, haha 😉 I’ve tried every flavor, of course, since I eat Larabars everyday. I LOVE that flavor, but yes, it IS drier than the other ones (since it doesn’t have any fruit in it besides the dates; and because cashews have less oil than other nuts).


  10. mmmmm its been too long since i had egg drop soup – how yummy!

    hope you have a good saturday 🙂 good luck w/ your training!

  11. Boo – I’m sad the hubby vetoed the spaghetti squahs in the dip – I would have liked to have seen how it all turns out!

    Good luck on your 5 mile run! 🙂

  12. I’ve only been to Charlottesville a few times, but I absolutely love it there. I wish they had more federal jobs out that way! I’m trying to stay in the government right now since I’m single and like the stability it gives me, especially with the economy the way it is. I always search the job postings down there hoping something will pop up. 🙂

  13. Your breakfast description had my mouth watering!! Love the egg roll too 🙂

    Have a great Saturday!

  14. Yay for a 5-miler today!!!! Gluck with it!

    And cashew cookie is one of my fav flavors of Larabar. PM cookie is my absolute fav though!

  15. lunch looks fab! i’m going to have to experiement and make a lentil salad I think 🙂

  16. Oh my that breakfast sounds good. I agree about the Larabar – PB Cookie is far and away my favorite flavor.
