There are some days when I’m so tired that I can’t imagine mustering up enough creative thoughts to get me through the work day, let alone this blog. Then, there are other days where I’m so tired and work is so monotonous or overwhelming that I welcome the opportunity to break away for a few minutes and write about cupcakes, Wacky Food Combos, Sometimes Healthy Living and donuts. (Note: I’m not complaining about being tired – let’s be honest, it’s probably my fault that I’m this tired – I’m merely just stating that many days I find myself tired, as I’m sure most of us in the real world do.)
A recipe was promised and shall be delivered.
Yesterday was one of those days. After a rough night’s sleep on Sunday night, I thought I had no gas in the tank and didn’t think I had anything more to offer the Sometimes Healthy Living Blog. But then, I remembered I had promised to post some donut recipes from last Saturday’s tailgate…
And I always keep my word.
So, without further ado, let’s talk about those donuts that were so delicious a tipsy tailgater told me I should open a healthified donut shop… Continue reading
Help me readers – I’m sick.
I miss "wide open spaces" and big, spacious grocery aisles!
I’ve got this very rare “illness.” Usually get it about 3 – 4 times per year. It’s characterized with extensive periods of feeling sorry for myself, longing for country music and “wide open spaces,” dreaming of large grocery stores with diverse baking aisles and produce sections, wanting to turn the corner and run into someone that tells you to “have a good day” because they actually care and needing the comforting sight of chain restaurants and never-ending cornfields.
I call this illness “There is no place like Nebraska” syndrome. Time and draft beer are the only cure…but it never completely goes away.
I always say that I love New York but my heart belongs to Nebraska (cheesy, but true).
A balanced breakfast! Who AM I?
Well, I’m home again for a Nebraska football game (more on that later), and now I remember another large reason why I like it here so much: Home is where the HEALTH is.
Look who's cookin' good lookin
The week I was in Nebraska, I missed both the Bachelorette and MTV’s latest addictive train-wreck, The Challenge. In fact, I turned on the television once in 8 days as entertainment while I was doing situps. What does that mean? It means I was extremely busy back in the Big-O.
I know what you’re thinking: It’s Nebraska, how much could you possible have to do?
Well first off, shame on you for being so judgmental dear old Nebraska. Omaha is a very happening place. You should go there for vacation. Let me know when you plan the trip, and I’ll make some recommendations…
And secondly, between family, friends and reunion preparations, I had plenty to keep me busy…including a Sometimes Healthy Spaghetti Squash Faux Lasagna Family Dinner.
Well, sooner or later it had to end. All good things do. My Nebraska vacation is officially over, and today, I’m back to that alternative reality otherwise known as New York City.
Back to the alternate reality...and the land of no time to do my hair...
I enticed myself back into my morning workout routine by treating myself to a giant cinnamon iced coffee from Dunkin’ Donuts. This was also an attempt to remind me of all of the great things NYC has to offer, including a Dunkin’ Donuts on nearly every corner. Omaha doesn’t even have one DD! Take that, O-Town!
I missed you Dunkin!
If you can’t tell, I’m a bit homesick on this first day back in the big city. Continue reading
