The Cold Returns

Not only are we getting more snow, I started getting another head cold yesterday :(

As the day went on, it was harder to breathe and my head just felt stopped up. I really hope it’s just a fluke day-long thing, because that last cold I had lasted for almost 2 weeks!

Between feeling bad last night and having some computer issues, I never got back on to blog.

But my snack + dinner were good!


I snacked on a honey Oikos with some of my new favorite trail mix yesterday afternoon while working, and dinner was easy.


We heated up the potato + broccoli leftovers and had that with some whole wheat naan from Trader Joe’s that we slathered in hummus :)


I love those naan breads – we always eat them so fast. I should just buy more than 1 package when I go next time. Does anyone know if they freeze well?

I went to bed before Burn Notice came on…I just couldn’t stay up any longer. I couldn’t breathe well and my head was just throbbing. I was so out last night that I never even knew when Nick came to bed! Good thing I got some extra rest.

And thank goodness it’s Friday!

I woke up with my throat hurting a little, but it doesn’t seem too bad yet.

At least I was excited for breakfast!


This is my new favorite trail mix from TJ’s. It has all kinds of good stuff:

  • dried apples
  • almonds
  • sunflower seeds
  • peanuts
  • raisins
  • craisins
  • chocolate covered raisins
  • chocolate chips
  • etc


I made some banana oatmeal and added a full 1/4 cup of the trail mix.

  • 1/2 cup oats, 1 cup water, pinch salt
  • 1/2 banana, sliced
  • cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup trail mix


Whenever I use trail mix in my oatmeal, I always mix in about 1/2 of what I’m using and save the rest for the top. Especially if there’s chocolate in the mix because I want all that melty chocolate on top :)

Coffee is being brewed!


Gotta jet!


What’s your favorite trail mix? Do you make your own mix?


  1. I freeze the naan I buy from TJ’s and it comes out great! Buy 2 next time. ;)

  2. I feel ya on being sick. It seems like this year, everyone is getting sick more times than usual. I wonder if it’s the crazy weather? I hope you feel better and that it is a fluke!

  3. Trader Joe’s trail mixes are the best! I love the salty sweet one with little bits of toffee and candied nuts…so delish in yogurt too!

  4. I never thought to add trail mix to my oats. Good idea. I like different trail mixes but chocolate is a must!

  5. Oh no, hope the cold doesn’t stick around. Feel better!

  6. That is the coolest coffee thing!!!

  7. Sorry you’re sick again! Get lots of rest this weekend.

    I make my own trail mix with roasted almonds, prunes, apricots, dried cherries, and dark chocolate chips. Mmm!

  8. That water “thingy” (what is it exactly?) looks so cool! I hope you are feeling better.

  9. That coffee brewer is so cool! I love Trader Joe’s :) I’ve never tried naan breads, ill have to check them out next time I go!
    My favorite type of trail mix is just making my own, throwing all different types of nuts,seeds,raisins,goji berries. Or if im in the mood to bake ill grind up the trail mix and make bars :)

    Hope you feel better! Have a great weekend!
    If you have a chance im new to blogging, check out my blog. :)

  10. I don’t normally buy trail mix. I just throw together a combination of whatever dried fruit and nuts (and sometimes chocolate chips) we have.

  11. Love that coffee gadget :)

  12. Sorry you’re not feeling well :( I can’t believe the wind right now!

  13. noooo. dont get sick! feel better! i love that freaking coffee maker. i have to put one on my registry! haha. where did you get it again? i make my own trail mix because most that you can buy have raisins and i hate those!

    happy weekend~ get some R&R! xoxo

  14. I love leftovers for dinner when we actually have them. That means if Hunni didn’t eat them.

    I don’t buy trail mix. I like to mix my own mixes if I’m going to eat it.

  15. dang chica, you just can’t catch a break! so sorry about the cold. Reason #43848938903 why us bloggies should all just move to Florida :)

  16. Hope you feel better and I pray that it was just a little fluke. I’m battling a week long cold myself. First it was a sinus infection, now it’s more of an allergy thing. It’s the worst and just won’t go away! :( Yuck!

    Take care hun. Rest tonight!

  17. Hope you’re feeling better!!

    I’m in love with the variety of Archer Mills trail mixes from Target. Currently I like their Cashew, Almond, and Dried Cranberry blend. Mmmm mmmm :)

  18. That’s one of my favorite trail mixes actually!! I have it at school with me right now and loooove it with oatmeal or if i’m feeling snacky–mixed with a bowl of pretzels too :)
