Two Lives, One Lifestyle

MMMing through dinner by Katie

When I was a little kid, I used to hum while I ate.  Like every single time I chewed food: “mmmmm.”  I did it completely subconsciously and my parents and siblings always reminded me to please stop!!! As I got older and wanted to make friends at school, I really tried to focus on not humming.  I couldn’t tell you why I did this, maybe I just really enjoyed my food??  Well, I THOUGHT I had completely outgrown this habit until a few months ago while eating with John.  I made a comment about how delicious my food was and he responds, “I know, I could tell, you were humming. You do that sometimes. Especially if you’re drunk.”  Ohhh wow, so embarrassing!!  Anyway, I now catch myself every once in awhile and tonight was one of them.

My dinner was so simple but clearly delicious as I “mmmmm”-ed my way through the first few bites.  I was not hungry for the longest time but then it hit me fast so dinner took literally 3 minutes to make.  I made a salad with Romaine, cuke, tomato, sprouts, mushrooms, and topped with a sliced up Gardenburger. I microwaved a Gardenburger Black Bean Chipotle Burger and I think I liked it better than when I cook it in the pan.  I topped this with Annie’s Goddess Dressing, another new product. This I LOVED and will be coming back for more.

I think I found better lighting (in my living room) to take pics while I still have to use my BlackBerry camera. Thoughts?

Before I went to the gym, I had a Kind bar.  These are also a favorite of mine and were on sale at WF. I meant to eat half before and half after but I absentmindedly ate the whole thing on the way to the gym while jamming out to Ke$ha… I guess this post is just full of embarrassing facts!

I decided to start tackling my New Year’s Resolution about running.  I haven’t run more than a mile or two in probably over a month so I wanted to just see what would happen.  As soon as I stepped on the treadmill, the Alabama-Texas game started and it was a great distraction for a whole hour!  Well I only ran for 30 minutes of the hour (3.1 miles exactly), and walked hills the rest of it.  Jenna on Eat, Live, Run had a post all about this game today and I would have never though to watch it if not for the treadmill timing + her blog post combo.  I like football but usually just watch when I’m with friends or John.  Bucknell did NOT have a football team worth watching.  Our basketball team made it to March Madness a few times though and that was tons of fun :)!

After dinner, I had another glass of the wine I opened last night and I tiny bite of chocolate. I think I might have lost my sweet tooth, I’m just not craving ’em.

What’s your favorite quick and easy dinner?

‘Night world!

Haha, my husband hums when he brushes his teeth. I keep telling him that he does it but he thinks I’m making it up!

LOVE Annie’s Goddess Dressing…and that flavor of Kind bar.
