Month: May 2014

For some reason I wasn’t that hungry for breakfast yesterday morning.  Just one of my Nature Valley copycat granola bars and a cup of coffee did the trick.   This batch I added 2 teaspoons of Giradelli cocoa powder, and they stuck together really well.

Working a double yesterday, I skip the lunch time workout since I know I’ll be walking and on my feet for 6-7 hours.  That meant garage sales!  I actually only went to one – an estate sale.  You could tell that these two older gentlemen who were running it were liquidating their Mom’s house.  Turns out she collected PIGS and ANGELS!

And check out this pair – $150 for both – have you ever seen these before??

I sent this picture to my Mom, since she collects angels too.  Um, let’s just say my Mom’s collection is a bit more tasteful.

I ended up getting a snowman soup bowl, and two gallon size bags of pens for $1.  I don’t know how it happens, but I’ll start out a shift at the restaurant with 7 pens and I come home with 3.  After sorting through them, these are the ones that worked.

And they had this old brand of sewing machine, Mom, have you heard of this brand before?  My Mom was a Singer sewing machine gal.

It was close to 1:15 and all of a sudden I was hangry.  I went to one of Tony’s favorite places.  He LOVES their steak and cheese on garlic bread.  When I told him I got an Oven Grinder (basically a heated up Italian sub) and kept saying “why didn’t you get the steak and cheese on garlic bread??!”

I got that sandwich and a diet coke – and it came to $9.03!  Ah, now I remember why I don’t go there so often, but it is oh so good.  I could only eat half, and I wrapped up the other half to have later for my dinner.

I got this picture from Joe later in the afternoon – I love these damn dogs!

Work started out really slow.  My boss and her husband and son came in though, so that was nice.  I was supposed to have a 6 top and an 8 top – one starting at 7:30 and one starting at 8:00.  7:30 came and went, and my 8 top finally sat down at 8:30.  And my 6 top finally called to cancel.  Rats.

We did have a great shared entrée – a 32 ounce Tomahawk steak with a 1 pound lobster tail!  It’s only $90 (ha!)

And we sold a couple seafood towers – this is one pound of split king crab, jumbo shrimp, raw clams, oysters, smoked salmon and lobster meat.  The large one sells for $105.

I finally got out of work at 11:00 – only made $105 with 4 tables it was that slow and with my cancellation.  Oh well!  It’s better than a poke in the eye!

Remember the other half of sandwich I was going to eat for dinner?  Well, that would be difficult to eat because I left it in my office fridge.  So I ordered a pizza from work (I get 50% discount) and a several squares when I got home.  With a glass of wine.  Momma’s puppies were tired!

I got my steps in, even without a lunch time workout – I only had 2,500 steps going into work, and ended up with:

It’s gorgeous out today – I wish I didn’t have to work tonight, but oh well.  Not sure what’s on tap today – maybe a trip to bed bath & beyond to get a generic filter for the coffee maker – I tried to use the old one I had in the new machine, and it only spit out a 1/4 cup of coffee – I think the holes are too small.

Hope you have a great weekend!  See you Monday!
