Triple Tangent Tuesday!

Dang, I think I forgot about this little tradition, it has been a few weeks since I have shared three completely random things with you, or maybe it was because I had too much to say about the best salad I have ever eaten, funny stories, my blog definition on Tuesdays that I forgot to write TTT!

Let’s start it off with the most important tangent of the day.  If you are having a bad day today, go to your local grocery stores, buy nutella and a banana and go crazy.  If you are having a bad week make sure to have nutella on toast for the next 7 meals and you will forget all about your bad week.  And if you are having a great day/week/year, eat nutellla on bananas anyway because you will never eat anything better in your life.

Just store it in your bag/purse like I do and it will be there for you to get you through any rough day or great day.  PS Thanks mom for the bananas that I stole from your house yesterday, I really appreciate how you don’t care/notice if I grocery shop in your pantry.

—————————————————————————————

Going along from the previous tangent my bfast involved 2 bananas, one with pb and one with nutella.  As you know I EAT THE SAME BFAST AND LUNCH everyday at school.  Somhow I forgot to pack my greek yogurt and it made me mad.  I searched my lunch suitcase at least 4 times for my yogurt but gave up and will just have to eat an extra 3 bowls of cereal after school today to make up for the missed calcium.

It was these kiddos first day of school was yesterday! It was the little ones first day of KINDERGARTEN. I know they aren’t my kids but I may have teared up thinking about how fast she has grown up!  Billy if you make me move for law school I hope you know that they will be coming with us!

Those are their uniforms!

I love the caramel greek yogurt. I forget what brand it is, but it’s soo good!

And I’m a big Nutella fan, as well. I make brownies with Nutella and peanut butter … they are THE BEST! :)

Reply

tangent: I was in a totally funky mood yesterday – just woke up on the wrong side of the bed. I am pretty sure that nutella would have saved the day. Not sure why I didn’t think about it!!

Reply

Chobani strawberry Banana is the best! My baby is only 10 months old, but I’m sure I’ll have mixed feelings about when she goes to school. Good thing its like 4 years away!

Reply

I don’t have kids, nor am I even married, but I know the minute I send my future children to kindergarden I will be waterworks. Those kids are so adorable!

Reply

I like plain the best! Second favorite is honey. But then again up here we don’t have many flavors to choose from. I can’t wait to try new flavors when I head down south in 5 days!!

Reply

I love Lemon Greek Yogurt w/crushed Graham Cracker on top (anything to make it like a desert, lol). I also like Black Cherry!

My little bitty is in preschool and my big boy starts Pre-K in September. He is so excited! I can’t believe he will be in Kindergarten next year! CRAZY!

What is your favorite flavor of Greek Yogurt?
-surprisingly I think my favorite one is the Peach Chobani… but actually I love getting the plain or the vanilla and then adding my own fruit/toppings even more :) There’s something about mushy weird fruit at the bottom of my yogurt that just isn’t as appetizing…

LOL about the banana! Only, I did that once, and then forgot about the banana.. threw a bunch of books/other stuff in my purse and ended up with squished banana guts everywhere at the end of the day!!!!!!!!

Reply

I tend to store food EVERYWHERE…I have a mini fridge in my classroom stalked full of powerade zero, string cheese, apples, carrots, and protein bars. Look in my purse and I have dried fruit and nuts. In the glove department of my car, trail mix bars, more mixed nuts and fruit. Never know when my stomach might rumble.

Reply

I haven’t really fallin love with Greek yogurt maybe I need to try a different brand. I do luv Nutella, try dipping animal crackers in it. Yummm.
My kids went back to school two weeks ago and I am still bitter, it’s to early, i want more summer fun time.

Reply

I’m not a a mom, but I am a teacher and go back next week. I always feel sad about summer ending, but the feeling goes away after a few days back at work! I hate when I forget to bring a part of my lunch to school– especially when it’s a spoon and I brought soup!!! :)

Reply

I LOVE the pomegrante flavor of Chobani..but I really wish they would make a CHOCOLATE greek yogurt flavor! Or even better, NUTELLA greek yogurt! Nom nom nom

Reply

Tangent: During the winter, I literally eat a bowl of oatmeal EVERY SINGLE morning. It does not get old at all, but once the temps start rising, then I can’t take it anymore.

Love plain Greek yogurt! But I was wondering, do you like your bananas green (like in your pic) or ripe? I can’t stand unripe bananas :(

Reply

I’m a vanilla flavored Greek yogurt lover!

And Nutella and bananas…or Nutella with anything for that matter…HEAVEN!!

Reply

Oh my goodness yes. I’m convinced that nutella smeared on anything can cheer anyone up! I love the plain and vanilla Greek yogurt!

Reply

Fav: Chobani HONEY. Delish!

I’m not a Mom but I am super excited for the kids to go back to school so that I can sub! Come on, sick teachers! (kidding, kidding. totally kidding.)

Reply

I have a recipe for you that I know you’ll love based on that first picture, and its easy!
Banana Pops
Peel a banana and cut in half cross-wise. Stick a popsicle stick into each half. Microwave about 3-4 tablespoons of nutella in a bowl so that it’s melty and gooey. Smear nutella over the banana pop (or roll the banana in it), then roll it in granola (or crushed up cereal of your choice). Place “pops” on a piece of wax paper and stick in the freezer until the nutella hardens. Eat and enjoy!

Reply

This may be blasphemy, but I’m not a big fan of Nutella. But I love the idea of it so I usually get the Peanut Butter & Co.’s Dark Chocolate Dreams. It really is so dreamy.

Favorite flavor of yogurt? I usually get the plain so I can dress it up with granola, chocolate chips, fruit, honey or whatever I feel like throwing into the mix. Yum!

Reply

What is your favorite flavor of Greek Yogurt?

I love vanilla greek yogurt or honey flavored! Mmmmmm!

My most favorite thing is to have a yogurt mess: 1/3 cup oats, some dried cranberries, blueberries (or other fruit), sunflower seeds and greek yogurt all mixed up together… delish!

Reply

I LOVE the plain greek yogurt because i can dress it up with whatever my tummy wants that day (berries to make it tart, cereal for some crunch, honey to make it sweet, etc.) and I always add cinnamon!. But, my new discovery is to put a little bit of cocoa powder in it. It literally tastes like the beginning of a semi-sweet cheesecake to me. Delish!

Reply

I love the raspberry flavor of greek yogurt!! A tangent about me- I’m thinking about signing up for my first race ever- a 10k! I can’t decide haha

Reply

I am excited to send them back, but it seems that I am even more busy on the days they are gone trying to get everything done.. and I am not a fan of greek yogurt. :( But I have only tried plain. Also.. nutella, bananas, and toast should be it’s own food group!

Reply

I love the honey or vanilla flavoured greek yogurt. I haven’t tried any other flavours yet :)

Reply

Where did you get that cute lunchbox? I’m a teacher also, and have been looking for one big enough to fit my lunch/snacks for the whole day. It’s super cute!! :))

Reply

I have the same one. It’s from Target. :-)

Reply

Ha! Ok…we have the SAME lunch bag and about once a week people ask me why I have 2 purses.

Then when I tell them one is a lunch bag, they tell me that my lunch bag is really big. Um, I like to eat people and some little lunch box is NOT going to cut it. Glad to see I’m not the only one!

Reply

Blueberry greek yogurt is my fave! And we have the same lunchbox. Awesome.

Reply

CUTEST UNIFORMS EVAA! i had to wear a uniform in gradeschool and highschool and def not as cute as theirrrs!!!!

Reply

I went and suffered through the afternoon heat and ran after work…yay!

I woke up @ 4:45 am but was too scared to run in the dark!

I can’t figure out my own blog right now and am super frustrated…blog fail!

Reply

I am so addicted to bananas and nutella too!

Reply

Yes- banana with nutella, almond butter, peanut butter.. YUM.. What you NEED to try is a peanut butter (or almond butter) with nutella, banana AND fluff!!! Make that a sammich and have a fricken party.. for real- you will NOT be sorry…
I’m boring- I like straight up plain greek yogurt- though sometimes I like to add almond butter, maple syrup or honey along with my fruit :)

Reply

That’s totally the lunch box I was going to buy for the start of this new school year (in a different pattern though), and I thought, “yikes, people are going to stare at me because it’s gigantic…” I’m glad to see you have it! It just holds all of the food and containers I need! The other teacher’s are just jealous they didn’t think of it sooner…

Reply

I HEART NUTELLA…and crave it all the time. However, once it’s in the house it’s usually gone in two days. I love it with PB and marshmallow fluff…oh yeah…it’s quite awesome.

I like the strawberry greek yogurt…but have only tried three flavors too. Do you get yours from Costco (I feel like they’re cheaper there)?

Reply

I use to alternate between peach and blueberry chobani..now I go for raspberry with raw oats or vanilla with sliced bananas.

What did you end up making with your surplus of brown bananas? I could never get into liking the “banana soft serve” idea…

Reply

That lunchbag Is frickin adorable!

Reply

Why waste Nutella on a banana? That sounds way too healthy. I just do straight from jar to mouth.

Reply

My daughter started 7th grade last week…And I’m still in shock. I still have 3 1/2 years until my youngest starts Kindergarten. I will, most likely, cry and simultaneously have a panic attack. I may or may not also get knocked up again at that point out of angst that my babies are growing up too fast. Vicious cycles.

Reply

I love this post entirely because of the Nutella! In fact, I wrote a similar post last week about how Nutella can get you through ANYTHING!! I seriously swear by that stuff :) http://heatherpanadventures.blogspot.com/2011/08/when-was-last-time-you-werent-at-least.html

Reply

I totally just ate an apple and nutella as a reward for a good day : ) SOOO yummy.

Reply

I’ve never had greek yogurt, so I don’t know which one would be my favorite.

Today was the first day of preschool for both kids today and I made sure to take a lot of pictures and blogged about it.

Reply

I like the pineapple. I also like plain with honey and dried cranberries.

My hubs will be giving you a shout out on his blog later this week!

I just informed him that we will be going to YogurtLand when we get to California next week. Possibly multiple times. In each city that we stop in!

Reply

Vanilla chobani!

Tangent.. I can’t eat meals anymore. For some reason, all I can do is snack. I don’t know what the deal is.

Reply

I would be totally happy just spooning Nutella.

And, by spooning, I mean both cuddling and dipping a spoon into the jar 90 times.

Reply

i posted a whole bunch of tangents on my blog =)

My tangent for today is that I finished all the Make it or Break it episodes that netflix has and i need more!!! And that although I’m sure that the show wasn’t meant for a 30 year old I may have cried at it. :)

Reply

I love plain greek yogurt so I can put whatever I want in it. Honey, berries, banana, pb, cinnamon, tuna (tuna salad, ftw!) etccccc.

Those have to be the cutest little uniforms I’ve ever seen in my life.

Reply

Where did you get that ADORABLE Bag!?

I heart nutella too, on toast, with bananas. omg :)

Reply

Tangent 1- I have never had nutella… I’m a chocolate lover and for some odd reason I don’t have the desire to try it

Tangent 2- I’ve missed your ttt

Tangent 3- went to yogurtland today and my husband put no I repeat no toppings on his.. Weirdo! I kept thinking if I run into hungry runner girl here she would be so dissapointefd. Who does that.

I almost wish I was sending a kid to school I have 4 and none in school. But I’m enjoying then before they go for 13+ years…

Reply

I LOVE mango flavor!!! and pomegranate!! But lately I have loved blueberry anything and everything!!!

I am HOPING and PRAYING I will be back in school by November (when winter trimester starts) so I can actually finish my MBA!!! It looks like some of it will be online so no fancy first day of school outfit pics lol!!

Reply

i love lemon chobani and i sent my kids back to school the end of july and they’re already off track! (year round).

Reply

I have never tried Nutella! Sounds so good.

I CAN’T WAIT for the kids to go back to school! The summer went by fast, but it’s about right. Perfect timing.

My favorite icee flavor: grape/cola mixed. I worked at an icee shack when I was a teenager & got to try any flavor mixtures I wanted. That was a dream job!

Reply

Oh my goodness!! Your niece and nephew look so cute!! My daughter is starting preschool on Thursday and I am like so excited/sad. She is my first so it is gonna be hard to let her go… but I am so excited for her too, ya know.

On a side note, I’m doing my first ever spin class tomorrow (AHHHHHH!!!!!) any suggestions for a newbie??

Love your blog!!!

Reply

AHHH Did you already go to your spin class? How was it? My biggest tip is to talk to the instructor before class starts so that they can set you all up! Remember to take a break when you need the first few classes!! I only lasted 30 minutes of my first spin class!! Let me know how it went!!

Reply

I just got off the floor from doing the freaking class 2 days ago!!! It kicked my trash!!! haha jk no it was awesome, I only got sick twice but I finished out the class :) I will definitely go again. thanks for the advice!!

Reply

I love Nutella too girl!! I have to buy the double pack at Costco because eat it on anything and everything! My favorite is on bananas and graham crackers! Yummy!! My SIL went to France on her mission and brought some back, it is SOO much better than ours here! Maybe its the Glass bottle!

It was my nieces first day of 1st grade! I think I may have shed some tears too! She is getting way too big way too fast!! All day at school, where does the time go? She is so excited to take hot lunch (so gross) though and it is so cute!!

Love your blog… You are so fun!!

Reply

I DIDN’T KNOW THAT COSTCO had nutella……I will be buying it there from now on:) It was your nieces first day of first grade….I feel your pain:) Thanks so much Lindie and I hope you are having an amazing day!

Reply

Mmmm nutella is the jam….like actually! You gotta take it to the next level- plain greek yogurt mixed with a spoonful nutella, another spoonful peanut butter, sliced banana and some cereal on top for the crunch!

Reply

I have the same lunch bag!

Reply

i’m not a huge fan of yogurt, crazy i know, but i think if i had to choose i really like kiwi-strawberry. now i’ve never had the greek yogurt so i dunno if they make that flavor. :P

Reply

Favourite grrek yogurt flavour is Vanilla…which is incidentally my favourite anything flavour too, lol! :-P Love your patterned bag, it’s pretty! <3 I totally grocery shop in my Mums house too…this morning I ate some cute little dark chocolate bars I found and "borrowed" last time i was there…she always has loads of blueberries that I smuggle back too, becuase I can't afford the extra moolah to buy them for myself! :-) Luckily she's lovely about it and only pretends to be mad. I think ;-) Have a great day! <3 xyx

Reply

Your blog always makes me laugh!
I love nutella too, I ate so much of it when I was revising for my exams that I gained about 3 pounds :-P
My favourite flavour of greek yogurt is probably either coconut or vanilla :-)

Reply

I love strawberry greek yogurt the best. I just got Mike to switch to greek from regular.

I LOVE nutella. Our local ice cream place has nutella chip ice cream. It is the greatest thing I’ve ever tasted.

Reply

You HAVE to try the Lemon Chobani. OMG, amazin’. There are little bits and yum yums of lemon plump in the yogurt. Yea, for serious. Pick up some next time your out, love the combo of creamy and a bit tart!

Reply

Yum, Nutella really does make everything better. But I have to disagree about Greek yogurt. I just can’t get into that stuff!

Reply

I like plain greek yogurt with berries or peaches and honey!!

Reply

honest–favorite is plain! but if we are talking flavors, chobani pineapple and chobani mango are uh-mazing.

love your face.

Reply

tangent – i am the worst speller in the world – thank goodness for spell check or no one would be able to understand what i was typing…im that bad!

Reply

I love peanut butter and Nutella on bananas! One of my favorite snacks is a flat out (or a tortilla) smeared with pb on one side, Nutella on the other, and then a banana and roll it up. Yum! I love any flavored Greek yogurt, but I can’t stand plain!

Reply

Confession: I came home last night and used up the rest of my graham cracker stash on my Nutella. I just bought it on Sunday and its almost gone!! HELP ME!!!!!!!

Reply

DELICIOUS!!! Dang woman….wanna have a nutella and graham cracker party together?

Reply

I love plain Greek yogurt and sweetening it with a little stevia and a dash of cinnamon and mixing in some PB flour [PB yogurt], applesauce [apple pie filling] or pumpkin [pumpkin pie]! Okay… So I may like desserts a little too much :P

Reply

I just tried the nutella and banana combo…why have I waited so long?! Also, is the fanny pack brother-in-law your husband’s brother or married to your sister? I’m still trying to figure out your family. You need a JANAE FAMILY 101 tab!

Reply

Nutella is my “best” friend. I could eat that stuff with anything:)
As far as back to school, I am definitely feeling ready. i have 4 kiddos at home who are starting to get on each others nerves…plus I need a routine!

Reply

OMG…my oldest is starting high school. My youngest is 16 months…my middle child will be 10 yrs old! nice and spread out..

Greek Yogurt flavors…i’m kinda hooked on Chobani’s Lemon flavor. I dump a handful of blueberries or raspberries in!….but talking about Nutella has me wondering if getting plain yogurt and dumping a spoonful of Nutella in might not be super tasty???…

Reply

You might have a panic attack when I say this but… I have never tried Nutella. I know I know. I think it is b/c I don’t like hazelnuts and so I assume it will taste way too hazel-nutty (is that a word?) for me.

My fav Greek yogurt is Fage 2% with fresh berries mixed in. I had to give up dairy 3 months ago due to some digestive/bowel issues so now I am yogurt-less and have not found a good non dairy replacement! boo!

Reply

Black Cherry Chobani! You will not be disappointed!
