Hey, hey, hey! Thursday’s here! The end of the week’s in sight 😀 I had a niiiice, relaxing night last night. After getting home from the gym and promptly showering and reading blogs, I got started on a lazy dinner. When I say lazy dinner, I mean one that started like this:
Then four minutes on high later, looked like this:
I picked up this dinner a while ago, because I love, love, love me some Indian. This resembled Chicken Tikka Masala, so I picked ‘er up. The verdict? Meh. It didn’t really have enough flavor for me. I wouldn’t buy it again. It did the job and made me full, though. Plus, I made it a little more interesting with a glass of Chardonnay on side:
I ate this “TV dinner” while catching up on Gossip Girl. Regina really grinds my gears!!
Anywho, then I got to baking because guess what! We’re having yet another food day at work? Seriously when will this stop. It’s just getting ridiculous. But…I played my part and baked something yummy to share. And it is boss’s day… even though the boss that will be eating it isn’t really my boss anymore, but that’s a whole other story. Since it was already 8, I knew I wanted to make something easy peasy. I found just what I was looking for on Tina’s blog and made a:
Chocolate Pumpkin Loaf
I made it because A. I had all the required ingredients, and B. there were only 3 instructions!
Combine everything in a bowl and mix well. Check.
Then ya just pour it in a loaf pan and bake on 325º for 45 minutes! See? Easy peasy!!
Oh, then sprinkle on powdered sugar if desired. I did indeed desire. I most likely won’t have any – I’m bringing my own food today.
On a side note, see the pumpkin in that mixing bowl? Well, that pumpkin came from this Libby’s Pure Pumpkin can:
Did you know Libby’s farm where they grow all those pumpkins is only 20 minutes from where I live?? Remember my 10K last month? Well that was in this town (Morton) and the name of that race was “Libby’s Pumpkin Festival 10K.” In fact, Morton declares itself the pumpkin capital of the world! Cool, huh?
Well I must go finish getting ready for work before I’m late! I hope you all have a fantastic Thursday!
Does anywhere near where you live deemed the _____ of the world? Or at least of the country or state?
