Food and Finds

I'm starving!!

Tonight for dinner we're having "throw all this crap in a skillet and make it a burrito". Sounds good doesn't? It smells pretty good cooking. Throw an onion in the skillet and everyone gets all excited around here. (I finished making it before I was done writing this, it actually turned out pretty yummy!)

Today is the first day all week that I have not come home and crashed out on the couch. Probably due to the fact I had a Starbucks Frapp on the way home (light of course). Oh and I went by the thrift store on the way home to see if I could find any fun stuff. 

Last week I went in there and spent $5 and got a Creative Memories Scrapbook (with blank black pages in it-yes some day I'll scrapbook again, it's only been a year), two audio books and a couple other things. One of which was this book. I paid .29 for it and sold it for $25 the next day on Amazon. Score! 

Today I didn't find anything really to sell but I found this cool book. It's a bit dated being from the 80's but I really like it!

All the places in here are within driving distance for the most part, if nothing else they will give us some ideas for little adventures. 

I like how they have how long the trail is

and a pretty detailed map.

The first entry in the book is Angel Island. I've never been there but I've heard about it. I think that would be more of just a day trip unless we were already in the city (San Francisco). It's $13-$18 a person just to take the ferry to get to the island. Unless you have your own boat that's the only way you can get there. Looks like a fun way to spend the day.

I also picked up a fairly recent Western Landscaping  book. I always like looking at those and the designs of yards and such in there. 

I spent $1.30 in the thrift store and got a couple more little books. Love that store!

Last night Scott and I went to the gym and we worked out in this one room I've never really been it. It has the weight machines that you add the actual weights to. I'm a bit sore today that's for sure! Tonight we are supposed to go out and run. Rusty will be happy. He was rather sad that we put our shoes on and didn't take him with us last night.

I've been pretty good with my eating all week (I pre-made my lunches on Sunday night) so hopefully I can get back down to my lowest number again soon. I'm sick of this up and down stuff!

Up and down stuff is my life!
If I ate what you made for dinner I would be 3lbs overnight. I can't eat all that starch or I pay the price. And I did the other day and am working on getting it off now! sucks.

I had a friend who I worked with . she would rush home from work, turn the oven on low, throw in an onion on a sheet and that gave her time. She would unwind in the tub with a glass of wine. The family came home and thought dinner was in the oven. It worked for awhile - they then caught on. It made me howl!!
