• Step Away from the Computer

    January 1, 2011

    I spent ALL day sitting in front of my computer updating and creating new pages for Carrots ‘N’ Cake. I love that my new blog design allows me to do so much! :mrgreen:

    After spending more than 6 hours diligently working away, I’m happy to report that I’m about 75% finished. (I plan to finish the rest of the pages later this week.)

    Check out CNC’s new pages:

    Needless to say, my brain is mush after all of that hard work, so I’m going to whiz through today’s eats.

    Breakfast

    Creamy quinoa made with soy milk, mashed banana, and a big scoop of Teddie peanut butter.

    What a productive day! Love quinoa for breakfast. Don’t know why I don’t eat it more often!

    That quinoa looks delish! I have never thought about making in sweet instead of savory…. :)

    I think larabar should get in-touch with some frozen yogurt companies for dessert. Think of the possibilities of frozen banana yogurt with larabar pieces… coconut milk too? man my mind is working today

    Wow! You got a lot done on your page! Love it all! Don’t you just adore how blogging is like a black hole and can suck you in for HOURS!? hehe

    For New Years, I cleaned up after our NYE party, took down Christmas decor (finally), and watched Black Swan! I’m sad tomorrow is back to work!

    My new years was nice, except that I had to work from 7am to 2pm. But the hubs and I had a great dinner at the Horseshoe Grille in N Reading that night. :-)

    Those cheese sticks look amazing! When I was little, we’d visit my grandma and always get Little Caesar’s when the adults when out for dinner. I can smell them now!
