And the Award Goes To:


Three crazy fast days…work, work, working. And unfortunately, Parrish and I didn’t have time on Sunday to menu plan, so we decided to skip the grocery store and save the money. At the time, we thought it would be an awesome way to save some cash; especially since we’re getting married really, REALLY soon.

Bad idea.

For a gluten hater, planning is imperative. I really don’t know what I was thinking. So I’ve been relying heavily on my Tasty Bite goodies, and I’ll have more reviews for you guys soon. But yesterday I had a tiny window of time before work, so I decided to change it up.

Banana peppers from our garden, grape tomatoes, red onion, and mushrooms (that were too shy for the camera)

Yep, that is the extent of the veggies available in our fridge right now! We have NO spinach, NO carrots, NO squash…and for dairy…we have milk. NO CHEESE!! Not even a crumble for a mouse. 

So I scrambled :)

Breakfast for Lunch Sandwich:

Served on my beloved Udi’s Whole Grain Bread (BTW, if you still haven’t tried Udi’s yet, then I want you to email me and tell me one good reason why not. Then I will tell you FIVE good reasons to try it)

It was good…but it would have been better with a little mayo…or cheese! :)


Today I woke up at 5:30 AM and went to my little part time job. I was a smart girl and wore my running clothes and packed my work clothes. This seems to work for me. It forces me to go run.

After an AWESOME 3 miles, I went to work with SO MUCH MORE energy! If I can keep this up for two more weeks, I’m going to reward myself with a YMCA membership! I will have successfully gotten up and exercised and for two months. And in all honesty, if you follow me on twitter then you know that it’s becoming a bit addicting. FINALLY ;0)


For supper tonight, Parrish and I decided to do something SUPER QUICK. So quick and delicious, they deserve an award! And the award goes to: MELLOW MUSHROOM

Don’t worry, I’ll accept it on their behalf. “First and foremost, I would like to thank God, without you, none of this would be possible. And I can’t forget my friends and family, who have helped me ever step of the way. And of course, Mellow Mushroom, without whom I wouldn’t have been able to call in a take out order for gluten free pizza and pick it up 22 minutes later. Thank you so much. I love you.” smile and pose. What. A. Nerd.

Sigh. Love it. And ya’ll know what I ordered! Need a refresher?

OK. Off to bed! Tomorrow is the second to last day of the rug event and it’s going to be Cuh-RAZY.

My excuse for not yet trying Udi's is I can't get it!

I envy your sandwich bliss - keep it up!

And best wishes for your upcoming (quickly!) nupials; Our six month anniversary is on the 17th. I'm in Canada, he's in Durham hence the lack of Udi's :(
