Breaking Up The Work

by Courtney on October 31, 2010

Spending four hours of my Sunday doing all of the grading the I procrastinated doing during the week = total bummer. Ughh. :oops: One of these days I’ll learn!

At least I was able to break up the work with some football & a couple trick-or-treaters. And I must say, I was quite proud of the fact that I only stole one piece of candy from the candy bowl! :shock:


Then a little while later, I figured hey, a little wine never hurts either…


Oh yeah, and dinner’s a pretty good way to break up the work too. ;)


Jay and I decided a quick and simple dinner was in order, so we cooked up the package of ravioli that I got last weekend at Trader Joe’s.


I topped my ravioli off with some sautéed onions and broccoli (which were generously coated in some Garlic Gold seasoning), marinara sauce, and some fat-free Mediterranean feta crumbles.



To be perfectly honest, I wasn’t a huge fan of the ravioli. :( I didn’t really love the flavor of them…must have been the mushrooms? Luckily, I had cooked up a boat-load of broccoli, so I didn’t feel deprived.

But even though I wasn’t huge fan of the ravioli, here’s a couple things I am a fan of:


Watching Cody fall asleep in the funniest positions EVER.


AND, the fact that I have this huge bowl of candy sitting in my house…


with no more trick-or-treaters in sight.

Yeah…hubby was nervous we wouldn’t have enough candy after the 4th trick-or-treater came, so he went out to get some more.

That was about 2 hours ago, and we haven’t seen one since. Looks like it’s gonna be time to get creative in the kitchen!! ;)

Question for the Evening:

What do you do with your leftover Halloween candy?

There would never be leftover candy in this house.

Keep it hidden in a cabinet, but to make sure I enjoy a couple of pieces once in a while. :) You can’t deprive yourself of the things you love. Life is too short to not have candy (mainly chocolate)! HA! Happy Halloween!

We have lots of leftover candy, too. It’s all going to work with my hubby this week for the office to enjoy. P.S.Cody’s a cutie pie.

That was the ONE piece of candy I stole too :D Skittles are the BEST, purple of course ;)
Aww Cody is too stinkin’ cute- I love how he crosses his feet & hands. What a cutie.

Cody is so cute!

I would have a secret stash somewhere for whenever you have a sweet craving and then bring some to work :) We don’t buy Halloween candy (for trick-or-treaters anyway haha) because I never have any trick-or-treaters where I live.

I love Trader Joe’s but I’m not a big fan of their ravioli either. Whenever I have extra candy or cookies, I bring it to work! My co-workers appreciate it, and I’m not tempted to eat them all by myself ;)

Last year I hit a major sale on Halloween candy and made a million batches of snickers/hershey blondies. Soooo good…

Haha – i love watching my cat fall asleep. He is so cute when he curls up in a little ball when he sleeps. Sometimes he puts one paw over his eyes and I can’t help but squeeze him.


10 Darcy Pogue October 31, 2010 at 9:05 pm

Yep, I bought Halloween candy that I don’t like, so it will not be eaten by me, but I will be bringing it into work………..


11 Shanna October 31, 2010 at 10:31 pm

Put in the freezer or take it to work. Outta sight (sorta) out of mind ;)


12 babs October 31, 2010 at 10:51 pm

Bowl of candy with no eating = willpower of steal!


13 janae jacobs October 31, 2010 at 11:44 pm

Freeze it!! Good job on only eating one thing, I wish I had your self-control. I am a teacher too and I get so mad at myself when I have to bring work home over the weekend, but we will never learn to just finish it all during the week:)


14 leashieloo October 31, 2010 at 11:55 pm

Omg, that is the cutest cat ever! I end eating all of the candy and peddling it on other people :)


15 CaSaundra November 1, 2010 at 8:02 am

I am really picky about ravioli..I usually like to make my own and then freeze it for emergencies! :-)


16 Gabriela @ Une Vie Saine November 1, 2010 at 8:05 am

Break them up and use them instead of of chocolate chips in recipes!! Or bring them as special treats for your students in a few months :) Hope you have a great Monday!!


17 Kristen D November 1, 2010 at 11:10 am

Haha I bring my leftover candy to work with me too – our lucky colleagues ;) A lot of the time though it just gets stuffed in a drawer and forgotten until its too stale to enjoy, whoops.

Awww Cody is so cute! Haha I just stash away my leftover candy until the next Halloween- it doesn’t go off for years! :P
