Good Evening My Loverrrrzzzzz ...

I'm a complete and total SPAZ right now. First, I'd like to tell you all I had a great day! The second of two "get out of work an hour early-free" cards was used today. Hoooraaaahhh! The bf and I are catching him up on the seasons of Grey's before next season starts. He's watched the latest with me and we are now moving quite swiftly through season 2.

Let us just get right down to brass tacks - I'm too excited to wait any longer. Thank you SO much to HEAB for showcasing how to make an omelet in THIS POST. Bee tee dubs -- I'd how it's supposed to be spelled and it comes in both ways I guess. At least they both produce the same exact three definitions. Omelet, Omelette ... um, yeah, moving on.

A Festive Feast Really

  • 1 egg/2 egg whites
  • 2 slices Smart Deli Ham
  • 1 slice Sargento, Reduced Fat Provolone
  • Low Sugar GRAPE JELLY schmashed and schmeeaared on top!
Usual Suspect

Oh, I'm goooood! I'm REAL good!

For the record, wait - someone is keeping a record - omelets can come by for dinner ANYTIME!

So tonight, of course, you see it up there ... the Usual Suspect... but it's not usually donning THIS!

Never again. I will eat this up and use it for it's original intent -- to savor the bottle when I start making and bottling my own dressings, which will be the minute this runs out. I may try it as a tofu marinade? Certainly it can't be worse than it was on the salad?! Anyone tried this before? Am I crazy nuts for not loving it?

Pretty much starved to death by the time I made it by Target to pick up the "baby away", I browsed the bar bins to see what I could see. Too heavy in all nutritionally related areas for me to consume on the daily, but this thang was dead tasty! Scrumpch!

Off I go for more Grey's kids. Peace out!!

1. What are some of your fave items to throw into an omelet, omelette?
I can imagine the redic possibilities. I kept saying "OMG, my life has changed forever" once I took my first bite. My dear over HERE inspired me to throw jelly on it!

2. What's your fave bar?
Love my Luna's but I should probably branch out!

Lazy DinDin, Blog Stalkin' & Hemp Protein

Good Evening Foodies!

How is your week goin' so far? Mine? Hmmmmmmm. It's goin' and I had a "get out of work one hour early-free" card for not one, but TWO days this week when I arrived! That's me, best job ever girl. Lol~ No, but anywhoooo, I skipped out at 3:30 p.m. today and will be doing the same tomorrow. *happy sighs* Please don't take this to mean that I have been productive since coming home. I absolutely haven't been. I have a list of things to do and then I'm going to bed! Early. 'Nuff said.

My mind is so busy lately. I can't quiet my thoughts! There's SO much floating around up there, so much I want to do, so much needs to get done, wants, needs, tasks .... AAAAHHHHHH!! I can't figure out if I need a vacation or if I need to address this issue in typical, 10th grade English paper style and make an "outline" first. It's all very exciting things, for the most part -- so that is....well, EXCITING!

Dearest peeps, I NEED YOUR HELP! I bought and have been using the Vanilla Hemp Protein Powder. I get a SERIOUS case of the jitters and weirdness when I consume it. Is this normal? Has ANYONE ever experienced this? Does it go away? I tried only using half a portion this morning and still got the same reaction. I want to do protein and was really amped about the Hemp vs. any others and am now thinking it may not work. ?? I also want to try the Amazing Grass Amazing Meal but it's protein sources are Hemp and Rice proteins. Also, the Manitoba Harvest site's FAQ page says there is no way to fail a drug test by consuming their products, however, I'm wondering if that holds true even if I plan to include this in my daily or several times a week regimen. This is, of course, if the strangeness I get from it goes away, otherwise I'm going to look into the Bio-Chems. Seriously, any helpful words would be greatly appreciated!!

Dinner was served for me, by me this evening promptly at 5:36 p.m. Yes, that's early, even for MOI! I like to have plenty o' digestion time before hopping in bed. As mentioned above, it's early to bed for me tonight. Annnnnddddddd ...... *DRUM ROLL PLEASE*

I GOT OUT MY POINT AND SHOOT!!!!! No iPhone photos on tonight's dinner "menu".

Usual Suspect Salad

BTW - I should mention this gorgeous display of sweet, succulent perfection was supposed to be eaten LAST NIGHT. Nobody told me that it takes about a day and a half to make a baked sweet potato in the oven. Rookie mistake. I usually use the pre readied, plastic wrapped, "stick this sucka in the micro for 7 minutes and listen to it sing" variety. I must say, hands down, no comparison, I'll be getting these and doing it the right way from now on. SOOOO Good!!

My salad looks appetizing with the use of my Canon ELPH!

Inside of my non impressive, but highly tasty and FAST "pretendwich"... I had some ketchup to dip this in too -- it made it to dinner late and therefore, was not pictured.

I'm outta here kids!

1. What protein do you use and why? Why do you like it? What purpose does it serve with your dietary needs/daily regimen?
I am trying the Manitoba Harvest and as I stated, it may not be working. :( Major case of the sads if that stays true. I want it for sustenance. I'm not trying to bulk up or gain weight -- opposite actually, but just intended to use it in the GMs or Breakfast Cookies to hold me tight until lunch.

2. Do you ever feel overwhelmed with the thoughts spinning in your head? What quiets this for you?
I try to read and blog and read blogs and then get bogged down with the fact that I know I want to do these things. Also, my mind will go a million directions on me and then I am chasing my thoughts around all day making sure I don't forget anything. Anytime I gear up for a life change this happens. That, and, I need a cleaning lady and I need to de-clutter EVERYTHING; house, life, computer files ... EVERYTHING!
