Fried Friday

Thank goodness the weekend is here!

I felt like this week took forever to get through – every day just felt endless. At least the rain has cleared up a bit – it looks like we may have a pretty good weekend after all.

I think the slower-than-normal workdays have been kicking my snacking into overdrive.

Today, I brought some celery and carrots with some hummus and salsa.


Hummus + salsa is so good together!


And I am still not a big fan of raw carrots. I’ve tried them and tried them, but I guess it’s just not my thing.


I also added a small handful of pretzels for a little salt.

Even though today took forever to end, I did get a lot of stuff done and just have a few things left to finish on Monday before we head out of town.

I had some leftovers to work with tonight, but Nick and I decided to spend the last of our “spending money” for this month on a fun dinner out to one of our favorites. Thanks to the blog, I know how long it’s been since the last time we ate there  :)  We haven’t been in 2 months! 2 months to the day, actually.

It was definitely time to satisfy my onion ring craving.


I had my usual: Buffalo burger with lettuce, tomato, ketchup, mustard, and onion + onion rings.

Just as good as I remembered  :)

I’ve got a busy day tomorrow – lots of errands to get done to make sure we’re ready for this trip next week.

I hear my pajamas calling….and it’s almost time for What Not to Wear!

Oh, and Sarah? I saw this tonight in the grocery store and thought of you:


Is there something you’ve tried and tried but just don’t like?

I love cooked carrots, especially roasted, but I just do not like them raw for some reason! I also do not like any kind of applesauce. I can’t take the texture.


  1. That’s so funny – I love raw carrots and eat them everyday, but cooked ones just kind of gross me out. We’re opposites I guess. :)

  2. aw, poor applesauce! even chunky?

  3. Oh my gosh, I cannot STAND raw celery. I’ve tried to eat it, but the smell and texture and stringyness just grosses me out! I don’t mind it cooked in soups, though!

  4. I hate onions, but LOVE onion rings! :D

    That burger sounds good too!

  5. I just can’t take eggplant…why, I don’t know, but ugh.

  6. I felt the same way about this week.

    I need to try hummus and salsa – YUM!

  7. Raw celery! I have tried it a hundred ways and some ways have even been OK but not good enough to make me choose it again.

    Good luck getting everything done!

  8. I’m the opposite too! Love raw carrots but I have never liked them cooked.

  9. I’m not a huge fan of raw barrot either. But I do like to chop them up and put them in green smoothies! :-)

  10. I really, really want to like tomatoes, but there’s just something about them that I view as toxic to my salads and stuff. The weird thing is that I like them in things (salsa, sauces, etc.) but just not by themselves. Oh well.

    I do love raw baby carrots :) If you really want to eat them, smother them in hummus or Greek yogurt. Yum!

  11. I actually feel the exact same way about carrots! Raw=no thanks, but cooked,steamed,glazed,etc=I’m in!
