felt like sharing

i promise to post beach pictures later - by the time i got home last night from picking-up zoe (my sister's cat), it was late and i was tired... max doesn't seem to like her being there but i'm hoping they'll become the bestest of friends soon (they are cousins after all)... i DID get to pick blueberries though so i was happy to have them on my cereal this morning... yummy! :o)

since i had some downtime yesterday - i found some new/interesting things while surfing and thought i would share... :o)

—taco bell is giving out FREE samples of their new 'frutista freeze' from july 8–15
—lean cuisine has introduced seafood selections which includes tortilla crusted fish - yum!
—roni has launched her new blog --> http://ronisweigh.com
—welcome back, anne --> http://lapetiteviedeanne.blogspot.com
—since many of you have asked, here's a basic recipe for pesto - enjoy!

my department is having some sort of luncheon today, i have no idea why or what's being served but it will be here in the office and not at a restaurant... there will be some awkward conversation about "what are you doing this summer?" or "have any vacation plans?" and my guess is we'll be having the standard samich, chips, and fruit (unless they get all fancy on us but i doubt it)... i'm sure there will be a plate (or two) of cookies/brownies as well since this office just LOVES sugar... wish me luck!

happy tuesday...

update: and i was right - our lunch consisted of sammies, two kinds of salads, fruit, and a huge basket of sugar-like things... i had a nice portion of salad with raisins, apples, and walnuts, a tiny chicken samich on pumpernickel, a few slices of fruit, and yes - a small cheesecake thing (i know, i know!)... at least i didn't go back for seconds, so yay me! :o)

Your weekend at the beach sounded lovely. Good luck with the luncheon. Hope those kitties make friends soon.

Thanks for the recipe...looks simple enough. Even I might be able to muddle through without messing it up!

Stay string today at your luncheon! Keep away from the sweets!

Thanks for the links. Seafood selections...interesting, can't wait to check those out. Good luck at lunch today, my office get togethers are the same. Lots of sugar.

At least your office attempts to have somewhat healthy food with the two salads. It's rare when we get fed at school, but it's usually catered from a restaurant (Italian, BBQ, etc.). Then, the parents make homemade desserts and stand over the table, saying how much little Johnny loves my class, and wouldn't I like one of her homemade turtle brownies?
You have great will power!
