Today Is In The Bag

It is a cold day in Iowa today, but I didn't start my day with a warm bowl of oatmeal. Breakfast was a fiber-tast mix of Fiber One Honey Clusters and Fiber One with a splash of Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze.

I had a very busy morning, but still found time for my mid-morning snack.

Cottage cheese and applesauce with a little bit of cinnamon.

It may look suspect, but it is a yummy and filling snack. Trust me! Don't knock it until you try it.

One day at work, my coworker was cleaning out our fridge and threw away my cottage cheese and applesauce concoction because she thought it looked like spoiled food. I found it in the garbage! Hilarious!

We had a meeting over the noon hour today, so we ordered lunch from a local place called In The Bag.

I ordered a #49: the Chicken Caesar Salad.

They even include a fortune!

After the meeting, I had roll, mint and a brownie left over.

The brownie didn't last long after I got back to my desk. It kept calling my name, so it was promptly devoured.

In The Bag describes their brownies as "luscious" and they weren't exaggerating! It was delicious.

Unfortunately, my chocolate craving wasn't 100% satisfied, so I had a Fiber One Chocolate and Peanut Butter bar later this afternoon.

It had a couple more ingredients than my Cherry Pie Larabar.

At least over 25 more ingredients to be more specific! Oye!

I also just realized that I eat a lot of Fiber One foods. I should definitely be getting my 35 grams of fiber a day!

I taught my kickboxing class at 4:30 and then came home for mini-comfort food meal, which was some ground hamburger and ketchup on a piece of bread.

This was one of my favorite meals as a child, which we called "scrambled" hamburger sandwiches. I didn't know that most people it browned hamburger instead of "scrambled" hamburger! I don't really care though, I like my scrambled hamburger sandwiches!

Husband is at a basketball game tonight, so I am curling up on the couch with The September Issue.

I think Anna Wintour is fascinating!

Do you have a different/special name for something from your childhood?


  1. I totally want to see that movie! Redbox doesn't have it. Boo! And I can't think of anything from childhood that my mom named for us. BUT, I can't eat a grilled cheese unless it's cut into triangles

  2. I wish I loved cottage seems healthy and goes well with fruity sides! I only have examples of things from my childhood in Greek. my mom taught us some words for food in her dialect (Cypriot) and when I grew up and went to Greek restaurants I'd be like..wait, what? that's not what it's called!

  3. Mel, The September Issue was fun to watch. It might be worth a rental at Blockbuster!

    Andrea, I didn't like cottage cheese until I was about 22. It might be worth trying again - especially when it is mixed with delicious fruity goodness!
