it took some muscle.

Dear can opener and can of Libby’s,

Next time I try to open a can of pumpkin, please cooperate. All I wanted was some fall-ness in my yogurt, is that so much to ask?

Love, Mindy

Seriously, all I wanted this morning was to have a pumpkin-y breakfast and I had the hardest time getting the can opener to cooperate! It took far longer than it should have, a solid few minutes. My BFF/roommate found it quite hilarious, in all honesty I did too, but really, I just wanted to eat my breakfast! It took some serious muscle and effort, but I finally got it open and was able to throw together a pumpkin yogurt mess to eat on the road.

My mess contained whatever was left in a container of plain Chobani (1/2ish cup), 1/2 cup canned pumpkin, 1/2 cup raw oats, a drizzle of honey, and a generous sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice.

I was traveling for work today. Traveling, being a generous word to say the least. But, the great thing is the university campus I was at has a dairy store with lots of great homemade goodies. My car may have somehow navigated it’s way to said dairy store before I had to head back to Grand Rapids. And, I may have felt so inclined to go in and get an ice cream cone.

Can I just say how much I love photo editing software? The ice cream looked super blue in that picture before I doctored it up.

Thanks, iPhoto.

Once I got back into town, I grabbed some take out for a late lunch from one of my favorite restaurants in the city, Marie Catrib’s. I got the same thing I always do at Marie’s: a sweet potato and quinoa burger with a side of seasoned potatoes. It is an epic combination.

I ended up eating half of each. Marie’s is definitely one of those places that the meal comes with so much than I can never eat the whole meal…but I love it just as much as leftovers, so that works in my favor.

The downfall? I have a dinner event to attend tonight…in like 45 minutes…and I’m still full. Such is life.

Do you always get the same thing at restaurants or do you mix it up?

depends on the restaurant… we have a couple that we love because the food is so good, so we always want to try something new…

our regular pub down the street that we probably visit once a week? we usually get the same things… 2 or 3 items that we always order 🙂

your lunch looks REALLY good ! 😀

I’m terrible at trying new stuff at restaurants, I always stick with the same ol’ thing. I need to learn how to branch out more 🙂

My problem, I think, is that I’m so frequently trying NEW restaurants that I don’t get to the same place very often!
