Phish Food

Howdy! Well it's Tuesday here (what day is it where you are?! lol that was stupid!) I'm glad you guys liked the method behind picking a winner, I was feeling lazy and didn't want to write all the names out, so I just ran in the bathroom and said, "Hey Liv- pick a number between 1 and 18!!!!" To which she said, "what?! Why?" I replied, "just do it!"
And there we have it folks. The most fair and impartial selection process in the history of blogworld.

So I decided to can my original post from the other day. It is no longer relevant I think.

My weekend round up is pretty quick.
1. Friday night: recover from staying out late on Thursday
2. get up early and workout before going to skating.
3. get the Peanut to go from this....

to this...

all with a little help from my friend Tim Horton..

It was a great workout! She is going for a 6 week session, and I get to skate with her at open skate for only 6 dollars! whoooooo! We will be joining a roller derby in no time!!!

The rest of the weekend was a blur of running around and sleeping. I do count quality time sleeping as being busy.... just so you know! I branched out and made something new over the weekend as well. A recipe "adapted" from my Clean Eating mag I used to make the cookies in the previous post.

2 single serving cans of tuna
1 cup of quinoa (I love this stuff!)
huge hunk of frozen spinach
chopped green pepper
canned green beans (I used about 3/4 of the can- washed the beans...)
dressing:dijon mustard, olive oil, parsley flakes, S&P, cracked red pepper, apple cider vineager

method: cook quinoa according to package directions; cook spinach, beans, and peppers in microwave for approx 3 minutes or until the peppers are semi-soft

then, using your big saute pan, mix everything including the dressing together and saute for 5 minutes.

It was pretty good! The dijon dressing had a little too much bite to it, I might have used honey instead of the apple cider to "sweeten" it up a little- but overall.. delish, and supereasy.
Yesterday I had jury duty, so I didn't have to go to work! It was a productive day after I was released from my civic duty.. you know, stumbling out of a dark room into the bright sunlight.. and you say to yourself, let's go buy a hoodie! and get an oil change! And so I did. : )

I also had dance class last night. OMG I LOVE DANCE CLASS. It's so fun! Scumbaggy guy was there, but he was respectfully quiet. Phew! What I love is that our teacher really pushes us to put our own spin on things, so we do all these stpes and then can kind of put a little oomph into it.. to make it ours! Good for me, because I don't like shaking my shoulders (I have big boobs.. who wants to see THAT?!) but I do throw in all the hip shaking lol.

For dinner to prep myself for dance, I had..... a salmon burger and sweet potato fries. YUM!

Now you know why the post titile is PHISH food. I love fish!!!

Rebeca over at All Vegged Out left me an award, but I am on lockdown at work. If I can't get to your site easily (if you have your own domain.. ) I just cant read during the day.. which makes me REALLY REALLY sad! So girl... I'll take a look when I get home tonight!!!! Bahhhhhh!!!! (thats me crying..)
Alright, I'm going to but a lotto ticket tonight so I don't have to work anymore.. after I win the lottery.. right?!
What are your lucky numbers????


  1. Woo go Liv! I used to LOVE roller skating when I was little. Bday parties at the rink were awesome and I killed at the limbo on skates and always won a push pop! hehe

    I love your tuna casserole quinoa style! Fish is yum! And super healthy w/ the omegas!

    Good idea for the lotto!! I love #4 and have always like #14 since I was little, too.

  2. Awwwwww glad the roller skating lesson went great and how cool you can skate too for 6 bux!! Woohoo!! Roller Skating is great exercise!!!

    Loved all your eats.
    And I totally agree with Liv´s choice beeing the most impartial and fair selective process on Earth. Hahahaha.
    Have a great night!
    Brazilian XOXO´s,

  4. thanks for posting the quinoa recipe! I had quinoa for the first time at a restaurant last week and it was a little bland, so disappointing! this recipe sounds like a winner!

  5. awwwwwwww how sweet!!!
    what a FUN weekend!
    ive never had quinoa! i need to tho-i heard it was a POWER food!

  6. I am the worst roller skater - ever! Looks like she's having a blast though!

    If you win the lotto, can you give me some so I can quit work?! :D

  7. what a steal on that roller skating! nice! maybe use honey mustard instead of dijon? has less of a bite :). so sad about not being able to view some blogs at work!!

  8. Good luck on your lotto ticket! I keep hoping...

    Anyway, I love quinoa. And Peanut looks like she's having a great time roller skating. I've only gone once and I ended up on my ass for most of the time. Oh, well.

  9. Peanut is soooo cute. Your dance class sounds awesome, too.
    Take care, dear!

  10. Ok I just have to comment on the fact that you drink Tim Hortons!!!!!!!! That's canadian you know :) I know they have them in the States (more and more anyways) but it's still weird to see it!! :D
