Chicken, spinach, and Gouda sandwich bento

August 16, 2010

I decided it had been way too long since I used one of my collapsible sandwich bento boxes! The past few weeks I’ve been making sandwiches with “real” bread like sourdough and rye, as opposed to the “light” breads I usually eat.  There’s no denying the real stuff tastes better, but the calories do add […]

Bento, deconstructed

March 29, 2010

Thanks again everyone for your supportive words the other day, they were a great comfort to me.  I think I’m in one of those funks and whining about my weight is the easiest thing to dump it on.  It’s a constant struggle and I’m tired of fighting it.  Anyway, I’m sure I’ll talk about it […]

Salad, veggies, and restaurants, oh my!

January 27, 2010

Usually for me,  salad and veggies do not go in the same sentence as restaurants unless I’m saying “I don’t like to order salads and veggies at restaurants.”  But as you will see, there will be salads and veggies being eaten IN restaurants today. Day 3 of me getting up early to workout!  Yay! I […]

Yummy eats

January 26, 2010

I hope  I didn’t offend anybody yesterday when I was talking about my “cupcakes” yesterday!  🙂 Day 2 of getting up early to work out!  I did a different Walk Away the Pounds dvd (don’t ask how many I have) and then tried one of the workouts from the Biggest Loser – Cardio Max dvd.  […]

“Heart’s Desire” Bento

January 13, 2010

The running gag for my birthday is my love for Jacob on Twilight.  Especially since he’s barely 18 and I’m venturing into cougar-ville. You saw the poster I got and how happy I was along side it.  There were other pictures taken, but I am not about to embarrass myself any more. What you didn’t […]

Spice’s Bites — Jan. 11, 2010

January 12, 2010

Thanks again everyone for the birthday wishes!  🙂 I meant to post last night but I was just feeling crappy — headache, extra tired, etc. Since I’m supposed to be getting ready for work, I’ll make this quick. I woke up yesterday really really wanting a green monster smoothie.  Guess I really needed some fruits and […]

3rd Annual New Year’s Day Lunch

January 1, 2010

Well, we have survived yet another New Year’s Day Lunch! As usual, there are TONS of leftovers.   Not because the food sucked, but because I am my mother’s daughter and made way too much food for fear that I would run out of food. I wish I had remembered to take pictures of everything before […]

Rotis on the brain

December 19, 2009

Hope you’re having a good weekend so far!  Mine has been busy but good. Last night we went to my company’s holiday party — LOTS of excellent food and company.  Everyone got a number when they came in and later we drew for gifts.  So you went up according to your number and then drew […]

Lazy leftovers

November 8, 2009

I’m loving these lazy Sundays! Even though we’re trying to eat what we already have at home, I really did need to pick up some stuff at the store today.  I did pretty well about not going crazy and not stockpiling like I usually do.  A few treats did find their way into the cart.  […]

All My Eatin’

November 2, 2009

Yup, I actually managed to take pictures of my food today! Well, like 80% of it, but still! Let’s start the day off  .  .  . I usually don’t drink coffee, but Mr. Spice was actually up and he’d made some and it smelled good and it was freezing in the kitchen, so I stole […]
