Keeping warm + guest post

by spiceaholic on February 10, 2010


I am ready for it to get warmer.  Really.  Even though we haven’t had any snow, minus a few errant flurries this morning, I’m still going to complain about how cold it was today.

I decided to chance it and go weigh in today since I don’t know how crazy my schedule will be the rest of the week.  No change.  Last week I was UP 1 pound.  I really shouldn’t be surprised, I haven’t been that great with my eating.

Since I was weighing in before work, I waited until I got to the office to eat.  The usual suspect:


Lunch was an impromptu lunch date with my friend Kelly. We used to work together at my first job in Atlanta and now we work within blocks of each other. There’s this pizza place near our old office called Vespucci’s that we liked to go to for lunch. We have discovered a pizza place near our current jobs that we call “Faux Vespucci’s” even though it’s not AS good as the real deal. Aren’t we so clever?

Both of these places serve huge NY-style pizza and there have been many times when we’ve each ordered 2 slices and eaten every bite. Today was not one of those days. One of today’s specials was Italian Wedding Soup and that sounded really good since it was so farking cold today. I got that and a slice of their buffalo chicken pizza. Mmmmm.

Truth be told, I was actually getting close to full when I was halfway through my slice, but I finished it anyway. I’m getting better about noticing when I’m full, but not doing such a good job of actually stopping when I am.

This lasted me a few hours. But as usual I got hungry late in the afternoon.

Greek yogurt to the rescue! This was another one of the Dannon Greek yogurts I bought last week. I added some Fiber One for some crunch. Not bad, but it seems like it has more stuff added to it than other Greek yogurts.

Dinner was quick and simple. I boiled up some angel hair pasta, nuked up the last of the nasty Trader Joe’s turkey meatballs for Mr. Spice, nuked up a Boca Savory Mushroom Mozzarella burger and spinach for me, added some pasta sauce, Parmesan cheese, and some spices, and dinner was done in 10 minutes.


I’m debating whether I want something before bed, but it’s almost 9:45 and I’m too lazy to go downstairs.

Don’t forget to check out my guest post on Eating Bender!  I had lots of fun doing it and hope you guys enjoy it too!

Your guest post recipe looks fantastic. Using slaws in Chinese style recipe is a clever idea. I enjoy reading your blog, spiceaholic!!
