Kitchen Staples and Friday Happy dance

Dinner wasn’t eaten until 9:10 p.m.  I know.  Who am I? How did I let this happen?  We usually eat WAY earlier than that in order for me to be in bed by 9:30.  Well it was an interesting day……let’s just say those side stitches have not gone away and it is driving me insane.

I wasn’t craving anything in particular when I got home (except for hot chocolate) so I just pulled together a bunch of ingredients and it turned out really good.

Tortilla with melted cheese, spinach, avocado, grilled tilapia, mas queso and sour cream.

I may have almost gotten into the car to go to the store in my pj’s and face mask on to get salsa.   I LOVE salsa and I put it on my salads all of the time.  It hurt my heart a little to be without it but tomorrow is a new day and I am going to have to sneak into my mom’s food storage to steal some more of her freshly canned salsa.

The night ended very well……Rocky Road ice cream with M&M’s eaten out of my favorite purple mug while watching The Bachelor.

It is FRIDAY people.  One, Two, Three……do your happy dance….here is mine:)   I washed my hair today and my hair rejected the shampoo and made it look greasier than ever.

3 miles on the treadmill……My coach switched my long runs to Saturday’s so now I will be getting up and going long before spin!!!

—————————————————————————

Who do you predict Brad (from The Bachelor) is going to CHOOSE?

-Emily 100%……he is whooped over her.  Who wants to skype while watching the last two episodes so that we can analyze every little detail and talk about everything?!?!

Do you ever eat food out of a mug?

-I love eating ice cream out of a mug but Billy thinks it is strange……..do you ever eat out of a mug?

What are 5 staples that you HAVE to have stocked at your house at all times?

-I already listed salsa so that doesn’t count.  Broccoli, Spinach, Eggs, Candy, Bananas…….okay, just a few more.  Yogurt, Bananas, Chocolate Chips, Costco Whole Wheat Bread and Tuna.

What time do you eat dinner?

-Usually between 6 & 7, I felt like I was in college again eating way too late at night.

I love eating out of a mug! Ice cream, chili, soup, cereal…pretty much anything that you would eat with a spoon.

My kitchen staples are a lot like yours but I also always have apples, beans, frozen veggies, and buffalo sauce!

Reply

I really LOVE your random creation :) & I think Brad is going to pick Chantel & then Emily is going to be the new Bachelorette!! I swear they have set it up this way. She is such a beautiful woman- at least seems to be :) – on the inside & out.
YAY for Friday! Soooooo happy!!

Reply

Lets skype during the finale! or gchat or fb chat or somethin! I love emily the most but I don't think he's going to pick her…he is too "comfortable" with Chantal I think!!! Seriously. Chat.

yay for happy dance!!!!!

i have big mugs bc i love big teas. so i eat my oatmeal and cereal and icecream and soup out of them!
my kitchen staples include: jalepenoes, eggs, spinach, and some kind of fruit.

I think things taste better out of a mug – I like cereal, oatmeal, soup, ice cream, etc out of a mug. My bf eats his ice cream with a fork – now that is weird!!

My kitchen staples that I always have and buy no matter what every week are apples, bananas, baby carrots, spinach, broccoli, tofu, greek yogurt, eggs and milk. I also have a special snack drawer that's filled with other necessities, like sour patch kids, swedish fish, m&ms, stacey's cinnamon sugar pita chips!! :)

i try to eat dinner as early as possible, but my bf and i both work so late/have lots going on during the week so prob half the time we eat at 8:30 or 9, which is so late.

have you ever scrambled your eggs with salsa? before cooking them add a bunch of salsa and then scramble – it looks a little weird but is soo good!

Reply

He is totally going to choose Emily!! Unless he gets freaked out last minute over her little girl…but I don't think he will. Can't believe we need to wait another week and a half to find out!! Want to come to Boston and watch the Bachelor and eat pizza?? hehe. I totally eat icecream out of a mug too – tastes better that way! Have a great Friday!

Reply

Your dinner looks so good! I am leaning towards Brad picking Chantel…although I love Emily!

Reply

Omgggg girl of course I will skype!! Slash I love her, she is gorg and he is totally bonkers over her, it is almost impossible to top dead nascar husband.

Slash I did a happy friday dance too! Friday's are the best because you can eat everythingggg:) And i'm going out to din din tonight!

Double slash I eat basically everything out of a mug, except for veggies, those I eat out of giant salad serving bowls:)

Reply

Pre-bedtime cereal out of a mug, Yes Please! I also put ice cream in my mugs because it helps control the portion size! I hope Bremily happens but I've got a sneaking suspicion it won't :(

I would not have made it to 9 to eat dinner…I would've been chewing on the furniture at that point! I like to eat at 6 typically, any later than that and I am a monster!

I only like soup out of a mug, so comforting :)

Reply

Your Happy Dance is scaring me!!!!!! HA

Reply

Long run and then spin!? You are a beast girl! I have to have yogurt, spinach, carrots, nut butter of sorts and eggs…. plus nooch, craisins and bananas. Have a great weekend!

Reply

Ok so i have a question for you.. Influenced by YOU, I bought my first fresh head of broccoli last night. My mom never made anything with broccoli when I was younger so have never bought it! Crazy I know. Anyway, I want this broccoli to be AMAZING. So, what is your favorite way to eat broccoli. Steamed? Roasted? I just dont know how to cook/season it for it to taste amazing. And also to appeal to my anti-veggie husband. Thanks!!

Reply

I might be interested in the skype date. I just learned how to use skype yesterday! hahaha

Staples:
Yogurt, chocolate bar, granola bars, crackers, peanut butter

I hate to break it to you, but Brad is going to pick Chantal. He isn't ready for kids yet. I think he WANTS to be ready, but he isn't. I nthe end he's going to go with the gal that lets her cleavage hang all out.

I eat ice cream out of a mug. I don't know why, but it makes me feel good. Also, I have big bowls and if I put the ice cream in there I know I will overdo it and scoop more than I need.

Reply

I Only eat ice cream from a mug, it just makes it taste better!

My staples: Yogurt, spinach, milk, eggs, PB, apples, bananas, bread, oh wait that's more than 5
We usually eat dinner between 7 and 7:30 it just depends on what all we have going on that day.

My hubby is all about ice cream in a mug and last night he used my favorite coffee mug :(

That bandage better not be from giving blood. You shouldn't give blood when training for a race!!! (I mean, if you're a serious runner like yourself, I doubt it would hurt me a smidge!)

Reply

I usually eat dinner closer to 7:30-8 since I am at work till 7 most days. I wish I ate earlier so I didn't go to bed as full! I am also rooting for Emily. Don't read realitysteve.com, it'll spoil all the fun!!

Reply

Emily all the way, but is Brad good enough for her?!

Staples: oatmeal, bananas, spinach, greek yougurt, salmon, ice cream, and stuff to make grilled cheese.

Dinner: 5:30-6:30 because little boys get hungry, need baths, and then bed.

Reply

oh and yes, I have a green mug (I think it is suppose to be a huge latte cup) and it is my bowl for everything. I am in trouble if it ever breaks.

Reply

Dinner is usually at 6pm Otherwise I would go crazy from starvation! I have only watched last weeks Bachelor so I am kind of out of the loop.

Reply

1. i wish wasn't a poor college girl and so i could have a television and keep up with the bachelor :(
2. saturdays are my long run days too, so i will now have new motivation knowing that you are somewhere in utah running twice as far and twice as fast as me! :)
3. rocky road ice cream is the food of the gods. rocky road and peanut butter.

Reply

We usually eat dinner around 8 or 9. I work a late shift a couple of days a week and we've gotten in the habit of eating later. My kitchen staples are carrots, spinach, apples, cheese, and bread. Oh and chocolate! But that's a necessity.

Reply

I have a rainbow of Salsas in my fridge…I eat it EVERYDAY! and I always eat soup out of a mug :)Happy Friday!

Reply

Skype date, yes please! I know Brad is going to pick Emily. You can totally tell he loves her. Plus, who wouldn't love a girl who is as charming and poised as her. Plus she's from Charlotte, NC and I live about 2 hours from there, so I feel like her and I are bff's.

I love eating ice cream and yogurt out of mugs! It makes it seem like it is never ending :-)

Reply

Not only is it Friday, but it is the Friday before spring break!! WOO-HOO! Unfortunately, I am not going anywhere because my kids don't have break until next week. But I can get in more training next week since I am not teaching…yay!

I ALWAYS eat my ice cream out of a mug!! I love it because it is the perfect size. A bowl is too big, and the ice cream slides around too much in there.

Staples in my house: coffee!!, eggs, peanut butter, yogurt, and carrots!

Reply

I have to eat ice cream out of a mug, too. It just tastes better that way.
My 5 Staples: Eggs, Bell Peppers (I love peppers like you love broccoli), cauliflower, brussels sprouts and carrots.

I think he'll pick Emily, too. And I like to eat about 7:30PM. I have a couple of favorite mugs for late night cereal snacks. We always have bananas, peanut butter, spinach, canned black beans and chickpeas (for hummus!) and apples.

I always eat ice cream out of a mug, but so does my whole family so it must be weird genetics. I recently started eating cereal out of a mug or steamless wine glasses if I'm feeling fancy. We do have bowls, I swear.

Your questions are so fun! I have really enjoyed reading your blog…you're so funny!

I looooove Emily, but I feel like he's going to choose Chauntel. I hope I'm wrong though…
I eat my icecream and soup from a mug! You're not weird…unless I'm just weird too ;)
My 5 staples are; eggs, greek yogurt, salsa, cheese, almond butter…romaine lettuce too. I never eat dinner at the same time.

GROUP BACHELOR SKYPE CHAT?!? Heck yes!

I can not live without: bread products (we're going to just lump english muffins, bread, cereal, bagels and tortillas into one item so I can list a few others), frozen fruit and yogurt for smoothies, PEANUT BUTTER (and obviously honey, and mulitple kinds of jam/jelly), cheese (of the goat, mozzerella, feta, parmesan and cheddar, and etc… varieties) and spinach.

That was five, right?

Have a blast on your long run tomorrow!!

What is the green thing on your arm?

I eat cereal and ice cream out of mugs! It's great that way!!

UG…eating that late is no bueno…out of a mug or no.

I snack on dry cereal out of a mug….way better then the box :)

I always have to have salsa in the house as well as cheese, tortillas, pepperchinis, and feta!!

We usually eat around 630 or 7. Then i may or may not have a snack right before bed at 930 (BAD!!)

Reply

I want him to pick Emily, it looks like SHE is the one he does love but I think he will end up with the other one and that it will not end up with a wedding. boo

I am eating out of a mug right now. every morning I eat cereals out of the same mug. my kids think it is very weird.

I eat at 6

5 staples: milk, graham crackers, celery, lettuce, pita chips

Reply

oh and eating at 9:10 is a big no no missy.
we got a puckie this week…congrats??? I guess!

Reply

I will eat anything out of a mug. I love those HUGE one that are basically bowls with a handle. :)

I MUST have some sort of berry in the house. Yum. :)THAT gets expensive. Stupid produce prices….

Reply

I love eating out of a mug…or a bowl…really anything besides a plate for that matter. The best ice cream mugs are those Latte style ones because they are HUGE…basically a bowl haha. In my family eating ice cream out of a mug was not only normal, but expected.

And as for the Bachelor, we all know Brad is going to pick Emily. I'm not even sure why Chantal is there honestly. haha

Reply

As much as I want Brad to pick Emily I think he will pick Chantal O….it is safer for him!
As for eating out of a mug….perfectly sane thing to do.
5 staples I will always have are Baby Spinach, Eggs 9In some form), Unsweetened Almond Milk, Oats and Greek Yogurt!
My Husband to be has just found out how amazing Greek Yogurt is (Damn it) So I no longer have this all to myself!
Have a great Friday!

Reply

Emily all the way!
and the staples include: broccoli, apples, spinach, eggs, and goat yogurt. i promise, goat yogurt is delicious. i can't have any milk products except it and i DEVOUR it :) Happy friday!

Reply

I've never eaten out of a mug but it sounds like a great idea, especially for ice cream. I have a favorite mug that I got at a race instead of a finisher's medal… I think it just became my new ice cream dish. Thanks for the idea!

Peanut butter, choc. chips, bananas, milk, tortillas and because I can't count… cheese

Reply

I eat my oatmeal out of a mug.

Reply

I eat out of a mug, but usually only because all my bowls are dirty and I'm too lazy to wash them. My BF gets kinda irritated when I do it though haha. Or if I just want a little snack and don't wanna dirty a whole bowl.

Are your side stitches from running? I used to get side stitches pretty bad when I ran. I found that if I changed my breathing so that if I was breathing in when my left foot struck the ground/out when right foot struck, I switched it to the opposite. That worked. Or if it's pain not from running, I got that too, I didn't know it was also considered a side stitch though. I checked that out with my doctor, and he said it was most likely stress related. causing cartilage to rub in my bones. Nothing too serious – but if yours is stress related, take it a little easier on yourself! You're so awesome – no need for stress :)

I think that Ashley was the best match for Brad but I think he's a bonehead for picking a fight with her. I like Emily but I think Brad might be a "bad boy" and therefore might not be a good fit for her. I still can't believe she's only 24. She would have gotten pregnant with Ricky at 18, ouch. I couldn't figure out how to mail off my car insurance at that age.

Anyhoo, great blog! I envy the fact that you can go days without washing your hair. I would frighten a lot of people if I tried that. I'm the oil queen!

Reply

I will do a happy dance tomorrow at 5pm when i finish my last midterm and officially on Spring Break!!!

Because of my school schedule I don't get home till about 8pm so dinner is typically shortly after.

I always have yogurt, bran cereal, bananas, tuna, and whole wheat pasta in my house!

Reply

I always eat cereal, applesauce, pretzels, ice cream and basically anything that can fit in there out of a mug. I also refill multiple times, justifying that it because the mug is "small".

Staples: Carrots, apples, soda, sandwich thins, mozzerella cheese and cereal

Reply

Your dinner looks fantastic! What seasonings do you use on your fish?
It sounds like it's time to find someone to trade spin days with. You'll have to let us know how that works out! Of course you are wonder woman and can do amazing things!
Yogurt, eggs, nuts, broccoli, and chips. Sad but true.

Reply

I REALLY hope he picks Emily. She is the cutest thing on the planet. Unfortunatly, I won't be able to Skype…my friends and I get together on Monday nights to watch it. Wanna come over? :)
I usually eat dinner around 6PM and am in bed before 9PM. Granny style.

Chili should definitely be eaten out of a mug. I must say your ice cream looked "awesome sauce" in a mug, so I may have to try that now :-)

Reply

Hooray for a happy dance. :)
I dont eat out of mugs ususally but I use them to cook things in the microwave (eg peaches) before adding them to other things.

Reply

i never ate ice cream out of a mug. im going to try that this weekend!

My kitchen staples are definitely pb butter, yogurt, bananas, apples, tea, tuna, ketchup, hot chocolate, chocolate in general, oats, brussel sprouts, broccoli, my mom,…ok I'll stop now. Have a great Friday, Janae!

Cereal in a mug is BOMB.

Reply

I always eat my late night snack out of a coffee cup – and the Husband always eats ice cream out of a coffee cup. I used to think it was weird.

I always eat dinner at 6:00 – always.

Reply

Who do you predict Brad (from The Bachelor) is going to CHOOSE? – Could not agree with you more!! I LOOOVE Emily, she is gorgeous and it is so unfair that she could have throw up in her hair and still look attractive.

Do you ever eat food out of a mug?
I love eating cereal and ice cream outta a mug, or sometimes even a wine glass! Im off my rocker!

What are 5 staples that you HAVE to have stocked at your house at all times?
Eggs, some kind of fruit, Kashi cereal, smart one desserts, and cheeeese

I just watched the Bachelor last night too. I really hope it's Emily. Seriously, have you seen anyone as sweet as she is? I won't lie though, I always look up who the winner is on reality steve, i know super lame haha. He had the final 2 right but he has changed who the winner is so I actually have no clue who is going to win! It could be either! But I hope you start feeling better! Have a great weekend!

Reply

I eat cereal out of mugs ALL the time! Ice cream I just go out of the carton ;)

Reply

I always eat any snack out of a measuring cup. I have no idea why because I always fill it 3-4 times but I have always done this.

Kitchen Staples: Cottage cheese, string cheese, yogurt, granola bars, and ranch.

Reply

My supper was pretty plain last night. I bought my very first box of Panko crumbs and forgot to season the chicken. Oops. All white supper: panko covered chicken, mashed 'taters, cauliflower. Ehhh.

Also? I too am "training" my hair. It's week 3. I hate it. But I need to keep it up. I'm doing so well. I also washed my hair today, first time since Tuesday, heeeeck yea. My shampoo TOO REJECTED MY HAIR. I look like a disgusting grease head. :(

Reply

I love your cup!

Reply

I am of the belief EVERYTHING is better in a mug. I eat soup, drink wine & mixed drinks, and even milk out of mugs.

Reply

I don't know what to think about the bachelor!! He is totally WAY in love with Emily (and I don't blame him), but I kind of think she might break his heart. I don't know, she seems to kind of not be 100% in it. And they keep doing sneak-peaks that make it look like he is upset about something. Emily started out as my fav but Chantalle has been growing on me–I actually kind of hope he picks her now (crazy, I know!). I can't wait for the finale…I am not a huge fan of the reunion show (or whatever it's called).

I haven't had ice cream in a mug, but I eat just about everything else out of one! I have a giant soup mug I keep out of work that I eat everything out of (cereal/oatmeal for breakfast, salad/soup/noodles/etc for lunch).

Kitchen staples, hmm…eggs/yogurt/cottage cheese/apples/bananas/strawberries (if they're in season)/bread/CHOCOLATE/PEANUT BUTTER:). Okay, that was more than five but you cheated first;).

Dinner time is usually sometime between 5:30 and 7:30. I can NOT eat later than that or I will literally die from severe hunger pains:).

Reply

I've eaten oatmeal and scrambled eggs out of a mug. (not at the same time though) Ice cream sounds like a good idea! I have to do that next. :D

Reply

Happy Friday!
Here are my "must have" staples:
1)Nuts (I like almonds, but will eat any of them in a pinch)
2) Greek yogurt
3) Apples
4) Edamame. Seriously. Can't live without it. I get it at Costco in those individual serving bags & eat it at work. YUM.
5)Cottage cheese. Love it on its own, or as a salad topper instead of dressing.

I found out who won on the bachelor. Don't worry I won't tell. And I finally washed my hair today too. It had been at least 4 days. EEK!

I think I'm addicted to reading your blog. :)

Totally agree w/ you on Emily for Brad. She seems like a quality gal too.

Staples: coffee, milk, fiber one cereal, dreyer's french silk ice cream, and frozen broccoli.

I LOVE eating ice cream out of a mug!! Sooooo much better than a plain old bowl.

Reply

I can tell Brad is head-over-heels for Emily, but I think the fact that Emily has a daughter scares him, so Chantal would be a safer option–plus Chantal's family has a lot of money, and he could sell cars if he wanted to. What is it that he does now anyway? Have I just missed what his occupation is?

Reply

I have never had food out of a mug… I drink a lot of tea out of mugs though! Mmmm tea! We usually have dinner in our house as soon as possible after we both get home from work. Usually this is between 6-7pm. We typically are half-starved by the time we get home. I have no idea why. We probably need to eat more snacks :)

Reply

I have big latte mugs that I always eat my smoothies out of!

Reply

So, what is with the green band around your arm?!! :) HAPPY FRIDAY–watching the Bachelor tonight as my reward for the week!! It has to be Emily, doesn't it?!! How early are you going to get up to run?!?! You teach spin early don't you?!!

I love that you have a coach now–even though you hold yourself accountable, this means you are all the more likely to perform at your best!!

A mug keeps me from spilling ice cream on myself–bowls are so tricky! :)

Have a great run tomorrow gorgeous Janae!

Reply

What are 5 staples that you HAVE to have stocked at your house at all times?

-toilet paper
-nothing else matters.

Reply

Yeah, what's going on with your green band? Did you get blood drawn? First of all, I LOVE to eat everything out of a mug. It is a necessity. Second, I too buy all of my groceries at Costco and they usually involve spinach, broccoli, asparagus, bananas, pink lady apples, salsa (which also goes on everything!), and multigrain english muffins. Third of all, I WISH he would choose Emily, isn't she the sweetest cutest girl in the world? But I think he's going to choose the other one, I forget her name. I also don't really like Brad, he seems so fake and insincere all the time, so I kind of think Emily can do better. :-) Finally, can you tell us more about what your coach tells you to do? As a mediocre runner I do not need a coach but would love to learn about training vicariously through you! :-)

Reply

I love eating out of mugs. I have this huge latte mug and I eat soup and ice cream out of it. YUM!!! :) HAPPY FRIDAY!!!!!

DId you have your blood taken? I don't watch the Bachelor but you make me want to!!! I want to buy a treadmill so I can watch the Bachelor on my laptop as I run.

Yes I totally agree! I think he'll pick Emily, she's just so darn cute :) I love eating cereal/ice cream/soup/mashed potatoes/anything out of mugs! It's just so practical — it has a handle! My staples: spinach, OJ, chips+ salsa, Veggie brats, and Celestial Seasonings tea :)

100% Chantel. He likes Emily but cant handle not being #1 in relationship. That all changes when you have a little in the house. BTW – I eat my icecream out a mug too. perfect portion size.

I usually eat dinner at 6, but I have to wait until past 8 on nights that I work. I didn't eat a real dinner yesterday, unless you count half a box of cereal at midnight!

Reply

mmmm food….

staples: coffee, unsweetened carob chips, meat of somekind, yogurt, spinach.

dinner: much too late! I usually get home at 8pm, eat, and am in bed by 9pm (because I get up at 3 or 4am 6 days a week.) i wish I didn't have to do this, but it is the only option. :( your dinnner looks delicious! :)

Reply

I love eating out of a mug, yogurt and cereal is my fave :)
5 staples hmmmm
1. Peanut butter
2. Diet Coke (I know horrible and thinking about giving it up for lent)
3. Sugar free gum
4. Yogurt
5. Oats
Basically I feel like I am on a little kid's schedule all day, lunch at 12 snack at 3 dinner at 6 bedtime at 9. Pathetic but keeping on my schedule helps me do my best during my morning workouts at 4am!

The Bachelor, Emily fo sho!
I eat oatmeal out of a mug quite a bit…ice cream straight from the carton, but it looks so cute in a mug, I think I'll try it!

I LOVE eating ice cream out of a mug. I don't know what makes it so much more enjoyable, but it definitely is!

I've read the Reality Steve spoilers so I know who he picks, so I can't answer :/ I can tell you who I LIKE better though…I adore Emily!! And seriously, a mass chat during the Bachelor finale would be PERFECT!!

I eat between 5-6 so I can be in bed by 9 to keep my title of Grandma Hollie.

I always keep greek yogurt, chocolate syrup, coffee, milk and pears at my house.

Um, skype party to watch the bachelor=amazing idea. Bachelor is my guilty pleasure. I love Emily…what a Southern Belle. Can't believe she's only 24! I think it's gonna be a close call though.

Now I am SO bummed how behind I got on blogs, because I would have absolutely loved to Skype with you for Bachelor. Next season of the Bachelorette it is!
