Total Waste

Iiiiiit’s Wednesday! I really have no reason to be excited about it being Wednesday, but I’m gonna go ahead and use an ! anyways.

Hey, sometimes a little extra enthusiasm in the morning is a good thing, right?

So did anyone else watch the debate last night? Did you cringe just as much as I did? Ughh, good grief. Luckily, politics is not really a topic I care to ever discuss here in any sort of detail on the blog (it brings out the crazy in people, I swear) so that’s gonna be the extent of my discussion on THAT one. Moving on…

Shortly before the whole debate viewing (and watching The Voice) it was easy dinner time up in herrrrr.

I made up some chicken salad for the boy and a batch of sweet tuna salad for me. I wound up adding in quite a few veggies so it was voluminous enough for me to divide into two batches – hello, today’s lunch!

I served my sweet tuna salad on a big bed of fresh spinach, along with two slices of crumbled turkey bacon and a serving of Kashi crackers.

It was really, super good.

While we were eating dinner, we also decided to try out two of the new Oktoberfest beers that have been sitting in our fridge. While grocery shopping on Sunday, I discovered that our local Price Chopper added in a “make your own 6-pack” area, full of fun beers…I couldn’t resist.

I filled up my six pack with all Oktoberfest/Pumpkin beers and last night we decided to try these two.

The beers were good, but for whatever reason, neither Jay or I were in much of a mood to drink beer. Unfortunately, I only wound up drinking about half of my beer…total waste. Boooo.

Breakfast

This morning, I went straight for my hot mug of steamy coffee and sipped on that while preparing breakfast.

Seriously, what is it about a hot mug of coffee that is so comforting??

Today’s breakfast of choice was a good mix of lots of fun stuff…

One egg + 2 egg whites scrambled with broccoli and ketchup and half of a toasted pumpkin spice bagel topped with pumpkin and peanut butter.

Some protein, some carbs, some veggies, some caffeine…all sorts of awesomeness right there, I’ll tell ya! Winking smile

      haha I always always try to avoid those talks! Umm is that unpatriotic and sad of me? I’m just scared of people turning into scary animals when the P word comes out. lol.

      And Courtney, I agree that there’s nothing better than a balanced breakfast! I always feel content when I know my main meals contain all of the right amounts of nutrients. :D

        I don’t think it’s unpatriotic at all! It’s fine for all of us to have opinions, but there is something about vocalizing those opinions in political conversations that always creates tension. So, I just prefer to keep my opinions to myself and avoid all of the craziness. :)

    I watched the first hour of the debate (then I got too tired and went to bed!) and I totally agree with you.. Politics is definitely not something I feel the want or need to discuss on the blog! We all have the right to our own opinions, so let’s just keep the sanity and the peace! :) Have a great day!

    I usually only discuss politics with people that I know agree with me, otherwise it just turns into a shouting match. NEVER fun.

    To make the debate more interesting for me, though, since Obama and Romney kept getting in each other’s faces, I imagined they were fighting like they were in “West Side Story,” complete with snaps and girly jumps. My dad had no idea WHY I was giggling.

    Hi Courtney
    I love reading your blog, but was curious what job you have or our looking for. I don’t know if you didn’t want to discuss it just was wondering what is on the horizon …

    • Courtney says

      It’s not really something I’m looking to discuss right now, since I’m still working on figuring quite a few things out and it is sort a personal matter. As much as I do love sharing many aspects of my life on the blog, it’s important for me to keep some things private too, you know? I’m hoping that things will work out soon :)

  4. says

    Courtney, you put ketchup on your broccoli w eggs?? I’ve never seen that before! I usually add hot sauce or something but the ketchup def makes me laugh :)

    The tuna salad looks awesome esp. with turkey bacon. Have you heard about the supposed bacon shortage this year?? hah. I wonder just how true that is…

    Yes, the debate was very frustrating to watch…thankfully, it’ll be over after the election (and then another term begins!).
    :)

    Binders full of women. Four words that summed up that debate. Ahem.

    I’m Canadian but I’ve been following your election process very closely. It’s much more exciting than ours ever are:). I’m hoping for a great result in November!

      You know, I actually can’t get into the cinnamon in my coffee! I don’t like how I can’t seem to get it to blend in, and it creeps me out when it floats on top…I don’t know, I guess I’m weird like that ;)

  6. says

    Haha, I liked the added little pep in your step or rather, sentence :P My hubby and I tried a few different pumpkin beers last fall and were sadly disappointed and we weren’t big fans… I can’t remember which ones we tried but do you recommend any specific ones?!

      Hmmm…I think Sam Adams makes one that’s pretty good. Blue Point Brewery also makes a pumpkin ale that I love.
      We have a few more from our 6-pack to try out that are pumpkin, so I’ll be sure to share if they’re good ;)

  7. says

    Haha the debates are fun we like to mute it for a minute and add our own comments are to what they are really saying. It makes it much more entertaining!

    I don’t get the Voice sorry I just don’t. I’ve been diggin pumpkin beer for a month now I’ll be happy when they stop selling it so I stop drinking it…it’s so good when it hits your lips! :)

    Have a great day!

    Hi Courtney! I just wanted to tell you that I really enjoy reading your blog and that I have something for you to try that I think you will like. My friend told me about lining the rim of your pumpkin beer glass with a mixture of light brown sugar and cinnamon. I haven’t gotten a chance to try it but pumpkin beer, cinnamon, and brown sugar sound like an amazing combo to me : )

  9. says

    Coffee is indeed one of the most comforting things about the day in my opinion! I’m not sure what it is about it…maybe just the routine and warmth of it. I love it regardless! These days I’ve been adding pumpkin pie spice to my coffee and its just marvelous.

    I feel the same way about politics! I have my beliefs but I am not going to shove them down someones throat, mainly because I don’t want someone doing that to me. That being said…I seriously thought Romney and Obama were about to get into a straight up girl fight…hair pulling, scratching and all lol

    Lol- I feel the exact same way about politics, I refuse to bring it up on twitter or fbook because I don’t want to start any arguments. :)

    And coffee always has had a calming affect on me for whatever reason!
    Happy Wednwaday!

    Politics really does bring out the crazy, I can’t take it! I’m one of those people that are probably hated because it really just doesn’t interest me. I rarely know what’s going on and would much rather read blogs, a book or watch some trashy TV :)
