food, drink, and other

I have done little in the past week. Today, I'm completely fatigued and, after a short nap, I need to force myself into a short workout. I had a rough day at the kennel yesterday, during which I was mauled by a fluffy white cat, and beat up by some sort of corgi-great dane hybrid! Today, I had the stress of a quarterly review at Trader Joe's. It went great, but it never keeps me from stressing! It's kind of gloomy, and Moxie is asleep next to me dreaming her little pug dreams and making silly noises...and making me want to nap with her.
In the meantime, I have done this:
I made a delicious English Cottage Pie one night last week for dinner. The leftovers were yummers, too, and lasted for a few days.
A couple nights ago, I made a homemade curried chicken. Also good. Over rice, of course.

Had a craving for a margarita...had A shot of tequila in the house,

from about 12 years ago, when it was given to me as a going away gift from the cook I worked with at my first restaurant job! I will NOT be eating that worm...EVER!

Hubby fixed my leaky tire on my 'new' bike. Next up, sanding and removing what rust I can. Then a new paint job. I'm toying with the idea of free-handing some pretty flowers or something silly like that.

I finally broke down and bought a package of Trader Joe's peanut butter Easter eggs. At 200 calories an egg, I savored every last bite! So Good!!

I'm hoping to be more productive once I catch up on my sleep!


  1. Awww Moxie.. My little pugs jiggle their legs when they dream. :)
    My fav trader joe products
    1. dark chocoate peanut butter cups
    2. that double churned brie.. YUM
    3. cilantro hummus

  2. Mmm...I need to go make dinner...
    Flowers on your bike would be adorable!
    Also, I'm always craving candy and sweets, but have decided to save that loveliness for Sunday, since Nate has the day off, so we'll be able to enjoy "Easter" together. Plus, if I'm eating junk around people, I'm less likely to binge! But, my oh my! That egg looks divine!

  3. yeah, Easter candy. ditto with what Renee said for me.
    I LOVE cottage pie, yummers.
    you should type "tequila worn" into MyFitnessPal and see how many calories. Tee hee.

  4. I love your blog posts, they always feel filled with fun and energy.

  5. I've had a bit too much easter chocolate myself!
