Another One Bites the Dust

Yes indeed this day has come to an end with no exercise and I am not in the best mood. So I will try to be brief. Bfast: Bowl of cereal with 1 cup Twigs, Flakes and Clusters, 3/4 cup Kashi Sunshine, 1.5 cup skim with 1/2 scoop protein powder in Vanilla, 1 shot blueberries, 1 small sliced banana, 1/2 shot sunflower seeds, 1/2 shot raisins and a smile on my face (this morning):
I had this bar (very tasty, but wolfed it down before really getting to enjoy it) for my mid morning snack:

This was my lunch I packed for work; 1 serving of TJ's Rice Mac and Cheese with a dash of cayenne, chili powder and pepper with a salad on the side of spring mix with raw broccoli, red bell, Persian cucumber and a dash of Goddess dressing:
At work I had another Green Tea Frappe (obsessed) and when I got home I had this Itty Bitty Apple:
Later when I found out Sean would be home in time for a late-ish dinner I had this Soy Joy bar in mango, my consensus: bad, like a stale cookie and the flavor was weak and almost rancid -ewwww!
Plus it didn't hold me at all, so I went to the fridge to have the rest if the Mac and Cheese. I felt better and full so I was not tempted to eat as I cooked and not tempted to eat all the Mashed potatoes I was making for Sean! No picture of the rice and cheese but it was just like lunches sans salad.
For dinner I wanted to make a nice meal with my tip money! So I bought some New York Strip Steaks, potatoes to mash (Sean's fave) and artichokes!
Here are the green flowers of the earth! I steamed them:
The meal turned out just ok. I was unhappy with how the steaks turned out. I am really no expert on cooking steak, I have only ever cooked them ONCE! Sean usually BBQ's or broils them. I tried to Pan Fry them. They were over cooked and tough and too much like the steak in Napoleon Dynamite- HAHA~!
We had a a glass of wine with dinner from our case of Mystery wine and some Red pepper hummus and Goddess for dipping (but neither of us ended up dipping). I ate all of my artichoke but only had a spoon cleaning's worth of mashed taters.
Here is my steak- boo not so pretty I know:
I ate 1/4 of it and then said "the heck with this" Sean ate all of his (good sport) I must be spoiled because I don't really like steak to begin with unless it is very good quality and perfectly cooked!
Oh well! The best part of dinner was the artichoke heart~!!!!!!!! I love these guys, difficult to get to but so worth it!
Well now I am still not in the best of moods. I am always better after a post! I will catch up with you all tomorrow for FRIDAY! Have a good night!


  1. Love the steak/arichoke combo. Sometimes a girl just needs a steak! Happy Friday!
    P.S. Have you bought a new camera yet? I remember you were in the market for one and lately I am producing horrible photos so I am shopping, too!

  2. What a yummy dinner!!! :) Im the kind of girl that loves a good steak!

    NO NO NO NO worrying about the exercise, or lack of yesterday hun! HUGS!!!!!!!!!

  3. sorry your not in the best of moods dear! Just remember tomorrow is another day...and that day just happens to be Friday, so its even better :)

  4. Deary, dear! I'm sorry to hear you're not feeling too great - I hope FRIDAY treats you better :)

    Question: how exactly do you eat an artichoke? I've only eaten the kind that have been deconstructed (for lack of better term). Thanks for giving me the foodie heads up ;)

    PS. Napoleon, don't be jealous I've been chatting online with hot babes all day

  5. Thinspired- I have not bought a new camera yet, my thoughts are as follows “the economy is doo doo and so I should prob save up for something like Coachella tickets and wait until my camera poops out completely” But let me know if you find a good one, I am always looking!

    Jen- Thanks dear you are sweet to give the comment avec hugs! Hugs back!

    Emilydh211- Thank you and yeah for Friday!

    Ksgoodeats- Thank you too and lets see how to eat an artichoke, well I steam mine then peel of leave by leave and eat the “meat” of the leaves. Once you get to the more delicate leaves I eat as much of those as I can chew, then the HEART. You get to the purple leaves and the really small leaves and then hit some “hair” I just cut out the “hair” with a pairing knife and eat the whole heart. This is not the best explanation so sorry; I will find a better one and post soon!

  6. Aw I'm sorry to hear you aren't in a great mood. But you were so adventurous and brave with your cooking! Good for you:)

    Tomorrow's another day sunshine!
