I'm a Winner!

I am soooooo glad it’s Thursday and that the day is almost over. Today has been so long at work, more emails keep coming in – ah – it’s nonstop!!! I’m ready for a weekend.

The Hokie game last night went into double over time, so Nick and I missed most of LOST last night. I’m so glad ABC has the full episodes online! We watched it at lunch today- no eating outside since it’s cloudy/rainy today  :(

Lunch was pretty good! Some more chicken barley chili


A wrap with some fat free cheese and hot sauce!


Some celery with a little ranch for dipping


and some cantaloupe / strawberries


This batch of strawberries I got the other night are awesome!  They’re perfectly ripe and red inside  :)

I found out today that I tied for 3rd place in the Great Peanut Butter Exhibition #5!!!


Since the contest is over, I guess I can reveal the recipe I sent in! Man, was it good  :)

Cinna-Spiced Chicken PB Wrap

pbwrapNow, I did use leftover chicken for this, but you could definitely do this any day of the week!

  • Wrap/tortilla of choice
  • crunchy peanut butter
  • about 1/4 – 1/2 cup mashed sweet potato
  • cinnamon
  • cayenne
  • salt
  • bbq chicken (or tofu, or just regular chicken and use bbq sauce, too)
  • sliced apple

Spread a healthy amount (i.e., however much you want) of peanut butter on wrap.

Spread sweet potato on top of pb.

Sprinkle with salt, cinnamon and cayenne.

Top with chicken/tofu/whatever protein you want. I used leftover grilled bbq chicken.

Top with some thin apple slices.

Wrap, heat, and eat!

Thanks so much Peanut Butter Boy for a great contest! I can’t wait to try some of the other recipes that were entered in the contest  :)


Thanks to everyone for your comments and support for my mom. I talked to her at lunch and they’ve done the stress test, so they’re just waiting for the results. She was watching Barefoot Contessa and eating a not-so-yummy hospital lunch. All your comments meant a lot to me!

Enjoy your day!

Just 2 more hours, 2 more hours….
