Hey hi hello! I'm back!! 11:09 AM: I've been craving what Food 52 refers to as "Bodega Eggs," and what Smitten Kitchen has simply dubbed a "Lazy Egg Sandwich" - despite never actually having been to a bodega (oh, suburban life). This was super simple to throw together, delicious, and less messy than just piling scrambled eggs … Continue reading Sunday, April 15, 2018

Today was kind of a bummer of a day. I had a horrible allergic reaction to a new moisturizer I had used...my face broke out into hives and my eyes were so swollen it looked like I had been stung by 500 bees. These are the days I'm thankful working from home is an option...because … Continue reading Thursday, April 5, 2018

9:42 AM: The oatmeal was looking runny today, so I went for eggs...the fruit was looking pretty good though, so I made myself a little cup. 12:14 PM: Same lunch, different day. I DID eat my orange this time. 2:17 PM: Apparently I'm on a jerky kick...the reeeallllly chewy kind like the stuff they have … Continue reading Wednesday, April 4, 2018

I ate a lot of candy again today...oops. No worries, the majority of what was left has been whisked off to the office to provide sugar highs to my co-workers for the next several weeks! Onward! 10:58 AM: I finally remembered to buy American cheese!! Note to self: avocado doesn't really go with processed cheese … Continue reading Monday, April 2, 2018

Happy Easter!! I hope everyone had a fun, relaxing day with loved ones. I...ate a bunch of candy and worked from home. Such is life. 9:33 AM: About half an hour into my workday, Jeff came upstairs and delivered me this Easter basket in bed. Since we're not religious and don't have any kids, Easter's … Continue reading Sunday, April 1, 2018

Since I work this coming weekend, I had a rare Monday off (which means I'll have next Monday off as well). As much as I love working a normal Monday - Friday schedule, I'll always miss having Mondays off a little - it's always nice to have a day all to myself, and I love … Continue reading Monday, March 26, 2018

11:45 AM: I've really gotten myself hooked on fried egg sammies...I always forget how quick and easy they are to slap together. Let's take a moment to talk about cheese, because this was weird. My first choice for an egg sammie is always going to be American...that's just how it should be. Unfortunately, I rarely … Continue reading Sunday, March 25, 2018

9:48 AM: Yogurt today! 12:09 PM: Today was our monthly-ish catered lunch (our VP hosts an informal lunch for his org every month or so), so I had a little of everything. Our office has surprisingly good in-house catering, so these lunches are always a treat. I actually had a second helping of broccoli, because … Continue reading Thursday, March 22, 2018

Black Bean, Corn, & Poblano Tacos with Honey Chipotle Cream

Why do some of the best meals come from the situations where you're low on everything, but can't be bothered to leave the house for a grocery run? These tacos were definitely one of those cases - canned black beans, frozen corn, and a leftover pepper turned into one of the tastiest meals we'd had … Continue reading Black Bean, Corn, & Poblano Tacos with Honey Chipotle Cream

Snow day! Hopefully the last of the year! 11:16 AM: I made it downstairs shortly after 11 (as you may recall, I work from bed as long as humanly possible on work from home days), and decided to treat myself to a latte instead of my normal coffee (I guess a latte seems more indulgent … Continue reading Wednesday, March 21, 2018
