How Annoying. Foodgarbl is all personal now.

What is with Foodgarbl posting like cwazy all of a sudden?! I’ll tell you. I realized a goldmine was sitting here laying idle and I needed to unleash the proverbial beast. Oh and I’m hoping it will inspire me to lead a more active, entertaining lifestyle.  Right now the biggest kick I get out of my free time is returning something to Kohl’s.  So I’m just hoping to set some goals and finally reach them through talking about my attempt at doing so each day.  For example, I’ve always wanted to run a half marathon.  Jason and I started to train for one but we took a break when it got to be 105 degrees everyday and never got back in it.  Although we did dominate the Turkey Trot with a solid 8 miles.  I plan on picking a half marathon in the upcoming months and start training for it again.  I will garbl about my runs and eating habits to make sure I stay on target to finish 13.1 miles in under 12 hours.  I’ve also always wanted to be a good cook.  That’s a work in progress.  We scored big time at Christmas and are now the proud owners of a Kitchenaid mixer, Cuisinart food processor, Vitamix blender and rounded spatulas so we have no reason why we shouldn’t be whipping up some stellar meals.

Let’s talk about lunch today!  My whoa-di’s wanted to eat quick because we have so much to do at work so we walked over to La Madeleine in Chase Tower.  I had a cup of tomato basil soup and a chicken salad sandwich with a side of fruit.

The substitution of fruit was like $8.75.  My meal was $11 plus tax with no drink.  AWESOME!  The soup is delicious but from what I understand it is extremely high in calories.  Prolly didn’t help that my sandwich was served on a buttered croissant.  Or that I ate a ton of bread because it was free and I was trying to get my money’s worth.  Good thing I ran tonight.  Everything at Le Madeleine tastes rich and it is all overpriced.  If it had been up to me I wouldn’t have eaten there but I make giant sacrifices in life and that was one of them.

Tonight I had a maple peanut butter and strawberry preserves sandwich on Orowheat Wheat Sandwich Thins.  The peanut butter is SO DANG GOOD and I am obsessed with the sandwich thins because they taste so light, healthy and oh so delicious.  Along with my sammich I had some leftover lentils with sweet potatoes.  It was a totally random meal but I had to eat quick in order to go for a run tonight.  On the way home from our run we kind of ran into a pack of coyotes.  We first thought it was a cow but soon realized we were only about 20 yards from a bunch of howling wild animals.  And our dogs were off the leash.  Nice parenting.

Time for a Jillian Michaels punishment followed by a green tea latte before bed.  And I wonder why I can’t sleep.  YAY FOR WORK TOMORROW!!!  I leave you with a picture of the most adorable dogs in the world:

I also enjoyed the White Chocolate Peanut Butter and the Dark Chocolae Peanut Butter of this same variety. Very tasty and useful when making special dessert items to be announced soon to readers of Foodgarbl!
