Green, Green and Green

Look out! This is going to be a marathon post  :) 


Lunch today was a Meatloaf Sandwich (yum – sorry the picture doesn’t do it justice!)



Steamed green/yellow beans



and a really juicy orange



And….just because I’ve had this song stuck in my head all day, I thought I would share this video for you to enjoy  :)  My lunch was the reason this song came up – if you’ve never heard this, I hope you listen to it! I love these guys.


Work was work – only 2 more days this week! It’s been hectic without my supervisor here, so I’ll be happy when she’s back next week. It just seems like so many people decide to do strange things or ask way too many questions when she’s not here.


This afternoon, I had some plain ff yogurt topped with 1/2 cup of Kashi U. This was my first time trying it, and I really liked it! I loved the little blueberries in the cereal.





We decided not to go running tonight – Nick ended up having to stay a little later at the lab than he thought, so we’re going to run tomorrow. The weather should be nice enough for us to run outside, so I’m hoping it actually is! If not, we’ll probably have our stuff in case we have to go to the gym instead.


Dinner tonight came from Eating Well – I love this magazine! I’m going to have to look for the new one. I’ve made a lot of recipes out of it, which makes me glad I bought it – I’m getting my money’s worth!


Black Eyed Peas with Pork and Greens



This was really good – the smoked paprika gave it this amazing deep, smoky flavor. That smoked paprika is my new favorite thing – it’s awesome.


For my third green of the afternoon, I finally opened these


Thanks Mom!!!

Look how cute the little messages are on the m&ms!



Plan for the rest of the night:

  • Watch Hokie b-ball game until LOST comes on
  • Watch LOST
  • Try to stay up for the Top Chef finale….I can usually make it until the last 10 minutes – I seem to always miss the end!


  1. So much green goodness!! :-)


  2. LOL, I have to wear a hairnet at the hospital bakery and every time I put it on and want to start dancing and singing that song!

  3. Adam Sandler! LOL
    And love your eats. That is so cool with the green m&m’s messages!

    Love the sandwich tooooo!!!

  4. smoked paprika sounds wonderful! I’ll have to keep an eye out for it.
    have a great night!

  5. I know exactly what you mean about Top Chef! Somehow I always fall asleep watching it and just miss the winner/elimination part. Guess I’ll have to tough it out tonight because it’s the finale!
    Have a good night! :)

  6. Oooh, I love dinner! Thanks for posting the link.

    I have missed the end of Top Chef so many times due to exhaustion. I’m ready for tonight!!

  7. I also love Eating Well, I subscribe to it and got the newest issue yesterday! It is definitely worth the money! Mine always have food stains on them b/c I use them so much!
