What Are You Curious About?


Good morning – happy Monday! :mrgreen:

I’m certain that Iowa will no longer be considered a land locked state after this week is over. The rain will not stop! My Mom and I had to navigate around the lakes and rivers that have consumed the sidewalks and roads on our walking route this morning. 8O

The good news is that the wildlife around here seem to love it, and they were out in full force this morning. If we were bird enthusiasts, we would have been extra pleased to spot plenty of cardinal and yellow finch during our walk (and the biggest worm I have EVER seen – nauseating…!!)

In other news I’m packin’ 3 piecers today! Breakfast:


1. Crunchy Roasted Flaxseed Almond Butter


Getting down to the bottom of this jar!!


2. Pink Lady Apple


To be sliced, dipped and enjoyed at work. :)


3. Cultural Revolution Raspberry Yogurt


Ok, I’m happy to report that I liked the raspberry flavor WAY more than the blueberry. The blueberry was oddly sour and tangy – even more so than Greek yogurt. Perhaps I got a bad container? Ew. At any rate, raspberry =  ace.


 Lunch’s 3 piecer is super fresh.


1. Mixed Spinach Salad


In the mix:

  • Baby spinach
  • Mixed Greens
  • Carrots
  • Dried cranberries
  • Sliced almonds


I also picked up a new jar of Annie’s Lite Raspberry Vinaigrette which I’ll be using for dressing. I keep a bottle at work so I don’t have to bring a separate container everyday. Oh also – I’ve found that Annie’s dressings are the cheapest at my local Super Target vs grocery stores!


2. Pepper Jack Cheese Stick. Loooove me some pepper jack cheese!!!


 3. CHERRIES!!!!!


Fresh cherries are one of my very favorite things, and they were on sale for $2.99/lb vs the usual $5.99/lb at the grocery store, so I pounced! Do you like cherries?


All together now! :)


In other, other news, last night I was watching a special on the Discovery Channel celebrating their 25th year of being on air. It’s no secret that I am a huge nerd when it comes to history, geology and the world in general, so I was particularly pumped to see an hour featuring their “best of” and behind the scenes footage.

Part of the special involved interviewing people about what they’re curious about, as curiosity leads to discovery. One guy said he was curious to know how his remote control works, while another said he was curious to know what the future looks like. One kid said he was curious about EVERYTHING!!

I want to know – what are you curious about?

Have a great, and curious, day!!


I want to know how the HECK a computer works. How? HOW?!

The Salad Bar that Keeps on Giving


Breakfast was outstanding this morning! Cheese in a ‘loupe!
