Mondo This and That

by Holly on August 27, 2009

in dinner,lunch,Thai,this and that

Alright kids, hold onto your britches because we got a big one coming your way! Since there has been no “This and That” post this week, I am going to weave it into today’s.  So please, follow along (if you can).

First and foremost, I need to thank y’all for your “get out of a funk” suggestions yesterday.  Even though I’m not feeling completely out of the hunches yet, I just got back from a 3 mile run + yoga and am feeling lots better. Amazing what a lil’ endorphin rush can do, no?

Brekkie went unphotographed because I was inhaling my Barbara’s Vanilla Almond Shredded Oatmeal + skim milk plus a naner + AB as I was walking out the door.  Funny thing is, I wasn’t late for work.


Listen up peeps, this is how we do,
Delish dot com has some sammie ideas too.
I know y’all need some inspiration,
so pack up your lunch boxes for a meal celebration!

I was def a lil’ funkalicious throughout the day today, including splaying myself on the floor in our office.  Suddenly, our co-worker came barging in with a metal jousting helmet on and scared the bejeezus out of all of us.  Yes, a guy that works down the hall is a legit medieval times jouster.  No lie.

Lunchie was leftovers from last night’s Veggie Thai Red Curry


mmmm, mmmm good!

and some bluebs just for good measure

Miss Special K only treats us kind,
encouraging us to share yourself and mind.
Head on over to swap some goodies,
and share the love with all your fellow foodies!

After the red curry, I think the spiciness upset my tum-tum a bit so I dug into my snack a bit early…


Chocolate Brownie PURE Bar (smaller than a business card - fo reals)

I know, I really need to get over the size of these bars.  However, the flavor? AMAZING.


My snacky lil’ girl with the fabulous face,
is VegTastic and leaving her fave place.
She giving away some uber-awesome schtuff,
so head on over because Kailey’s off the cuff!

Later in the afternoon, I let my funk get the best of me, and I dived (or dove?) into a handful of these…


Milk fave candy eva.

A handful of Raisinets might have also entered my mouth. And I’ve been reminded, some sour watermelon slices.


My new fave blog has the biggest prize,
Jessie’s got a Vita-Mix – ain’t no lie.
Enter now for this magic machine,
smoothies, sauces and goods – you will gleen!

After gorging myself on sugar and on the verge of a fructose coma, I finished up the day and walked my buns home. Then I threw on my running gear, ran 1.5 miles to the gym, sweated out with a 75 minute yoga sesh (FULL of downward dogs + chaturangas = sore arms) and ran 1 mile home.

Then I devoured the most delicious bowl of yog eva!


Plain Chobani, mushed naner, buttloads of cinnamon, Vanilla Almond squares + raw AB

After dindin, I had a phone date with our fave Brit Angharad and now I gots to shower, clean this place up and hit the hay.


My bloggy changes are comin’ soon,
so don’t go leaving to rocket to the moon.
I promise the same stuff with a bit o’ sass,
peace out and much love from this g-ma lass!


Whoooooooo whooooooooo!

That’s only in the MORNING! You should be making breakfast or something anyway. It’s like an alarm!

Whoooo Whooooo!

(also, your dinner bowl looks bomb bomb bomb and leftover thai = jealousy)

Mia {runs and rests} August 27, 2009 at 10:50 pm

I just love reading your stuff! :D Can’t wait to check out new thingies.
Oh, I was talking about books with this girl and she mentioned she was reading a book about Cleopatra and her bizarre life. While she was talking, all I could think about was you and your grapes ! hahaha! :D

Andrea@WellnessNotes August 27, 2009 at 10:52 pm

Loved this post; you make me smile … :)

Christina August 27, 2009 at 11:07 pm

janetha August 27, 2009 at 11:39 pm

haha loved the intermingling of blogging and linking. way to multitask! ugh, that yogurt buttery bowl is so bomb to the dot com. um, that bar is too tiny for my liking! (TWSS) they need to take it up a notch in the size category.. cause yes, size does matter. milk duds! so good! i miss candy sometimes… LOVE TO YOU

WholeBodyLove August 28, 2009 at 12:08 am

I love yogurt messes! The nut butter really makes it divine.

Lainie August 28, 2009 at 12:44 am

You are hilarious! And I love milk duds too. I haven’t had them in ages, but man, now I was some BADLY.

insideiamdancing August 28, 2009 at 1:23 am

LOL… You crack me up :D

Raisenettes? Good call, chica. Yogurt bowl sounds awesome! Does raw almond butter taste much different from roasted?

RE medeival dude: I really want to go to one of those jousting events where you get medeival feast, watch fights, etc. Too cool (or nerdy?!)

Alison August 28, 2009 at 6:50 am

Yogurt mess, how I love thee? Let me count the ways.

Chomp, Chomp, Chomp, 1, 2. 3!

Loved the jousting story, I can totally picture it.

Sarah (Running to Slow Things Down) August 28, 2009 at 7:40 am

I’m in love with your yogurt mess…my oh my oh my. Total deliciousness!

Whit August 28, 2009 at 7:56 am

No one rhymes like you. Such a rhyming fool you are. I mean that with the highest regard.

brandi August 28, 2009 at 8:39 am

i love all the rhymes :)

and….is it strange that I also work with someone who does the medieval reenactments? i mean, teaching archery on the side, fencing…even a medieval wedding!

april August 28, 2009 at 8:54 am

You have the most yummy looking yogurt combos! Mmm!!

Emily (A Nutritionist Eats) August 28, 2009 at 9:48 am

Great Friday post!!

lowandbhold August 28, 2009 at 11:29 am

I’m glad you’re feeling better! This post certainly cheered me right on up!! :)

ksgoodeats August 28, 2009 at 12:07 pm

Hah – MONDO!! Milk Duds were a prominent feature of many Halloweens in my life! Those things are fantastic (although they rip my teeth out)! Oh, and those watermelon slices? Loved those too!

Delish din! Greek yogurt never gets old!! Hope you’re having a great Friday!

Evan Thomas August 28, 2009 at 12:14 pm

Tight rhymes, and those blueberries are making me jealous. I went to finish off the ones I picked last month and there was mold on them–no so good anymore

Kailey (SnackFace) August 28, 2009 at 12:30 pm

Gahhh I love the yogurt mess for dinner! I’ve totes done that before going out on the town. Perfect balance of protein+fat+carbs fo drankin! If only I could find a high-protein vegan yogurt… Blasted!

Um, thanks for the killa shout out! Yo rappin’ skillz be off da chain! Can you tell I listen to too much hip hop? Wait. There’s no such thing as too much.

This post just made my morning. Grazie. Have a fab Friday!

Faith August 28, 2009 at 12:44 pm

So funny! I can’t wait to see your bloggy changes! ;)

jenngirl August 28, 2009 at 1:08 pm

Loved it!! Glad a little endorphin boost helped your funk, hope it’s completely gone today!

Mmm I’m gunna have to start doing cereal messes for dinner, looks so joyous ;)

Katharina August 28, 2009 at 3:07 pm

Oh my goodness! At first I thought those were bananas or plantains in your veggie curry. I bet that would be awesome actually :D The thing I don’t like about Milk Duds is that they get stuck in every crevice of my teeth

I hope you have a fun-filled weekend and enjoy the rest of your day, love!

X’s and O’s!

Jenny August 28, 2009 at 3:51 pm

this one def. belongs in the “this and that” hall o’ fame.

have a great weekend sugarpie!

Mrs. Myers @ Eat Move Write August 28, 2009 at 7:07 pm

I have the same issue with the Pure bars. It’s a mental block for me. They’re SO small.

Michele | aka Raw Juice Girl August 28, 2009 at 8:37 pm

Oh, I LOVE blueberries! Do you ever eat ’em frozen? YUM!

I love Greek yogurt, too. I’ve never had Chobani, though–just Oikos.

(I followed over from Gena’s blog, by the way.) ;-)


glidingcalm August 29, 2009 at 8:20 pm

No way! I always adored Milk Duds too!!

I’ve only tried the Blueberry Pure Bar…..Brownie looks yummy though! But yeah……im not a fan of small things either! :(
