There’s no calories on Halloween, right?

Oh my goodness, as soon as I saw the pulled pork in a crockpot, I knew it wasn’t going to be good!  All in all I think I did okay, no dessert for me at least!

Lunch:

  • pulled pork sandwich
  • the cheeziest wagon wheel mac n cheese
  • hashbrown potato casserole
  • a spicy meatball (it was a jar of jalapeno jelly mixed with cocktail sauce and store bought meatballs – very good!)
  • broccoli slaw salad

What I didn’t take a picture of was the second spoonful of mac n cheese!

It’s fun because we have to dress up for work and we have a costume contest – my friend W and I won for funniest!  I won’t put up a picture, because you wouldn’t get it – its an office inside joke.  I let her have the prize:

It's a candy holder - its filled with hershey bars!

Hopefully we’ll get a few trick or treaters tonight!  See you at dinner!

Happy Halloween!

It almost felt balmy out this morning for our walk, it was already 50 degrees at 6:45 am!  We walked a new path again – this time it was a horse trail!

a path of leaves!

Once we got to the top of this hill, we could have walked forever!

Breakfast:

  • 1 Thomas’ whole grain english muffin
  • 1.5 ounce sliced apple
  • 1 ounce swiss cheese
Yum!

Yum!

We are having a Halloween pot luck at work today, which may be a challenge!  Sloppy Joes are the main entree – maybe I’ll have some without the bun for less carbs.  Not sure what else there will be, but hopefully there will be some healthy choices!

Good thing I am diabetic, because there are BOWLS AND BOWLS of Halloween candy – the good stuff too – snickers, kit kats, HEATH BARS which are my favorite!

See you at lunch!

Party Pizza Thursday?!

What’s up with that?!  Well, Hannah and I don’t like meatloaf, so we had plan B.  Luckily I had leftover pizza dough, so that was a quick decision for us!

The dough gets a special chewy/crispy texture when it sits in the fridge for any length of time.  It was so good!

Simple – a few slices of pepperoni, sliced banana peppers from my mom’s garden, and mine was a 4 ounce pizza dough.

multi-tasking in the oven! There's Tony's meatloaf on the left!

Here is mine out of the oven!

Don’t be surprised if you see Pizza Party Friday tomorrow. . . Just Don’t Tell Tony!

I have my secret ingredient recipe all set – I’ll be making it tomorrow night.  It sounds amazing in my head, so we’ll see!

See you at breakfast!
