Dun dun dunnnnnnn:


The journey has begun!! Hilary brought over the first two seasons and we are now four episodes in. Faith and Tate joined us as well – none of us had ever seen an episode! (Except for Hilary, of course). I knew I would love LOST when I first started hearing about it years ago, and I already love it. But it’s so SCARY!! I didn’t know it was such a thriller! I also can’t believe that we have like 1,000 hour-long episodes to watch. This is gonna be fun!


To go with the “movie,” I made Caitlin’s Mexican Lasagna, except I made it more in tostada form than lasagna form. This recipe was awesome, however, and with 4 ingredients and 15 minutes of cooking, I can’t wait to make it again.


Ohhhhhhhhhhh yeaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh cheese!!!


Faith made a beautiful salad to go alongside



I love refried beans!


And guac and sour cream.


For dessert, we played “Pass The Cookie Bag” and nearly polished off my Mason Jar batch! Even frozen, those cookies were so soft and chewy. I’m going to have to buy another jar!

Watch out for wild boars tonight…

I watched the first 2 episodes a few years ago (we could borrow them for free at Duke). I had to stop because a) I had schoolwork and b) I was scuuuured! My brother owns the whole series, so I need to borrow them from him.


2 Maggie @ Say Yes to Salad January 20, 2012 at 10:32 pm

I never watched this show! My hubby did back in college tho and it seemed addicting.

Guac is so good – and healthy to boot :)


3 kathleen @ the daily crumb January 20, 2012 at 10:32 pm

oh dear… i got sucked into lost a few years ago!! i predict you’ll be through those 2 seasons by the end of the month. it’s insanely addiction.

the tostada bake looks fab!


4 Greta @ Staying Lost January 20, 2012 at 10:45 pm

Really need recipe idea! I’ve never seen Lost- you should let us know if you enjoy it. :)


5 Lynn @ the actor's diet January 20, 2012 at 10:46 pm

Happy cheese lovers day!!!


6 Valerie Griffin January 20, 2012 at 10:48 pm

LOST is soooo good! My hubs & I watched them all this summer! ENJOY! :)

p.s. I’m now addicted to Whole Woods Wheat Waffle cereal. A bowl full+lots of fruit is my new favorite breakfast. Mmmm mmm THANK YOU :)


7 Olivia January 20, 2012 at 10:50 pm

Lost is amazing. Welcome to the cult.


8 Allison K January 21, 2012 at 1:13 pm

It is a cult. Seeing this post made me want to rewatch it all!


9 Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga January 20, 2012 at 11:02 pm

Glad you enjoyed the cookies enough to buy another jar…that’s high praise b/c normally when I am done with something, it’s on to the next. Usually don’t re-purchase unless it’s super special and floored me.

Those pizzas with the guac and sour cream…yum!

Enjoy your weekend!


10 Emily @ The Swallow Flies January 20, 2012 at 11:02 pm

I watched the first couple seasons of Lost and then just…got busy. I need to finish the series – I absolutely loved it! On another note, that salad looks gorgeous! I think my body is needing some veggies because whoa – I’m drooling over lettuce! When does that ever happen?!


11 Liz @ Tip Top Shape January 20, 2012 at 11:03 pm

I used to love Lost when it originally aired but then I had something every week when it aired. And with that show–you miss one episode and you are confused for a year. It’s all on Netflix instant, though, so I’m really tempted to start up again.


12 Molly January 20, 2012 at 11:16 pm

they look like chalupas! YUM!


13 Kelly @ Vegolosophy January 20, 2012 at 11:26 pm

I haven’t watched that show yet, but I have heard great things about it! Enjoy! :)


14 Angel7 January 20, 2012 at 11:45 pm

Quick fix meals are the best!



15 Jodi @ Jodeexi Writes January 20, 2012 at 11:55 pm

that’s such a cute meal idea! Have to try it out sometime. I won’t let myself get sucked into Lost, but I’m sure it’s great!


16 Mary January 20, 2012 at 11:55 pm

I’ll keep my eyes open for the boars :-). I’m relatively new to your blog and I don’t often comment.I just wanted you to know how much I enjoy your blog. You’ve created a great place to visit and I always enjoy the time I spend here. I hope you have a great day. Blessings…Mary


17 KathEats January 21, 2012 at 10:00 am

Thanks so much Mary! Welcome!


18 Ashley @ My Food 'N' Fitness Diaries January 21, 2012 at 12:33 am

oh my goodness, you will love LOST! my husband and i powered through all the seasons on Netflix within just a couple months. the last couple seasons aren’t as great in my opinion, but the first three are so awesome and suspenseful! you’ll never want to stop watching them!


19 Khushboo January 21, 2012 at 12:36 am

I’m still yet to watch Lost- I am scared I would never leave my tv’s side!


20 Blessing @ Working Mom Journal January 21, 2012 at 12:51 am

I have never watched ‘Lost”. I just assumes that it was hideous and scary. But it seems everyone that took the time to watch it had something good to say, I might give it a try


21 Lexi @ Cura Personalis Foodie January 21, 2012 at 12:55 am

Ooooh I saw the title of this post and was terrified that you actually lost something !


22 JessicaE January 21, 2012 at 1:34 am

My husband and I LOVED Lost!! I remember being very very sad when it was over :)


23 maria @ Chasing the Now January 21, 2012 at 2:01 am

Jeremy and I are on the 5th season and we are SUCKERED in… it’s hard to watch just one episode so we try to watch when we have bigger blocks of time. SO GOOD. Will be sad when we are finished.


24 Jay January 21, 2012 at 3:33 am
25 KathEats January 21, 2012 at 10:00 am

I did – thanks for sharing! Seems like we have the same policy regarding crappy comments.


26 Haleigh January 21, 2012 at 4:44 am

Lost was the first show that my husband and I watched together :)


27 Maria @ Sinfully Nutritious January 21, 2012 at 5:38 am

Those tostadas look so yummy. I think it will me Mexican for lunch today. It is snowing here in PA so, maybe it will be just what we need to cure the cold.


28 Lauren @ What Lauren Likes January 21, 2012 at 7:49 am

I never got into Lost really…looks like a great night :)


29 Kristen @ Change of Pace January 21, 2012 at 8:10 am

My sister just finished lost and said it was wonderful! I wish I had the time for that. I am so doing those little pizzas/lasagna!


30 Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin January 21, 2012 at 8:15 am

I was SO hooked on Lost, but then I never got a chance to watch the 6th season. I need to watch it soon because I’m dying for some answers about all the crazy things that happened on the show!!!


31 Hillary January 21, 2012 at 8:35 am

Before the fourth season of Lost began, my best friends in college and I watched every single episode from the first three seasons in about two and a half weeks. It was exhausting and so freaking awesome. You are going to LOVE it!


32 Allison January 21, 2012 at 8:58 am

Mmm, beans! Beans, beans, the magical fruit 😀 Both Caitlin’s and your mini Mexican toastadas look delic!


33 Rebecca @ Naturally Healthy and Gorgeous January 21, 2012 at 8:58 am

I love simple dinners!


34 Cait's Plate January 21, 2012 at 9:00 am

I had Mexican last night too! Such a perfect Friday comfort meal.

Enjoy LOST! I watched the first 3 seasons in 2 months!!


35 marie January 21, 2012 at 9:00 am

Guys, Where Are We?


36 Lindsay @ Running the Windy City January 21, 2012 at 9:04 am

Ah LOST is my all-time favorite show! Enjoy :)


37 Tabitha (From Single to Married) January 21, 2012 at 9:16 am

Fantastic looking dish! Hope you had fun watching Lost. I was so, ummm, Lost, when I tried watching it. Maybe the DVDs would help so I could hit rewind and try to pick up what I missed?



38 Susan H. @ The Food Allergy Chronicles January 21, 2012 at 9:17 am

Tostadas look so cheesy and gooey and yummy all rolled up in one…sounds like a great evening with friends.


39 Angie January 21, 2012 at 9:32 am

We watched the first 3 seasons of Lost the summer between the 4th and 5th seasons. We were so addicted that we asked for a Blu-Ray player and a special router to stream videos for Christmas that year so that we could get the 4th season as soon as it came out! It is definitely better to watch it in chunks. Someday I will own the whole series and watch it again…


40 Gina @ Running to the Kitchen January 21, 2012 at 9:47 am

I can’t wait for you to finish the series, I’ll be super interested to hear your thoughts on the whole thing! It’s one heck of a mind game ride! Enjoy :)


41 Ilana January 21, 2012 at 10:08 am

ugh I used to be addicted (ADDICTED) to Lost but … eh, you’ll see. The first three seasons are INCREDIBLE and strong so enjoy!!


42 Susan D. January 21, 2012 at 9:47 pm

Yes, so true! My husband and I started watching it last year (we bought all of the seasons super cheap at half price books store) and got through season five, maybe. We were so addicted to it in the beginning, but then it just got too strange.


43 Lea @ Healthy Coconut January 21, 2012 at 10:45 am

I guess that it’s good you are getting into it now, because you have all the episodes readily available.

When I used to follow the show, we had to wait for the next season to find out about cliffhangers and it just drove us nuts. I want to re-watch it all over again.


44 Michelle M January 21, 2012 at 10:57 am

Dinner looks great! My husband and I also loved Lost. We watched the first three seasons just before season 4 started. We’d have Lost marathons and finally drag ourselves into bed around 2 in the morning. It is such a great show. My husband actually proposed to me while we were watching one episode. Yeah, it was that much a part of our lives.


45 Emily January 21, 2012 at 1:12 pm

I just started lost too!!!!!!! Just starting season 4, once you get into the thick of it you can’t stop! too good.


46 Angela @ Happy Fit Mama January 21, 2012 at 1:16 pm

We were so wrapped up in Lost for the first 3 seasons. I think they were the best because there were so many hidden secrets. We would DVR it and play it back over and over to see what we had missed the first time around.


47 RachelSD January 21, 2012 at 3:56 pm

So envious that you get to start this series fresh (and all at one time)! I LOVED that show… before the days of us getting a DVR, I would come home early from book club to make sure I caught it! :) Now, that’s love! Enjoy. :)


48 Tee @ She Writes, Bites, and Window Shops January 21, 2012 at 4:19 pm

LOVE Lost! You will get so addicted! And yes, it is scary. Every episode would stress me out because I was so scared!


49 Candace January 21, 2012 at 8:05 pm

I am such a girly-girl and usually can’t sit still for anything longer than my favorite sitcoms. But two summers ago, my husband and I watched the entire Lost series. AMAZING! Such a great show, definitely some scary episodes! The Jacob’s Cabin episode is terrifying. Once you’re a good way in, you’ll have to confess whether you’re a Jack or Sawyer girl!


50 Sarah January 21, 2012 at 10:00 pm

I’ve recently gotten hooked on The Wire–nothing like a great tv show and a little bedtime snack with the significant other to lighten the weeknight workload, right?!


51 Katie @ Talk Less, Say More January 22, 2012 at 9:30 am

I started watching Lost right after the series finished and didn’t know anything about it besides the basic plot. …I got HOOKED! I also got sick a couple times while watching but didn’t care because it meant I could just spend the day sleeping or watching more Lost. SO good! ENJOY! :)


52 Kate @ Stripes and Polka Dots January 22, 2012 at 6:04 pm

Those Mexican pizzas look AMAZING! I love Lost! It’s one of my all time favorites! Enjoy :)


53 Emily January 22, 2012 at 6:32 pm

My husband has watched the entire show and loved it. I have seen a few episodes here and there (including the final one, since we had a party for it!) he wants me to watch it now with the DVDs that we have but I fall asleep every time he turns it on. I guess its not meant to be?


54 robin January 23, 2012 at 6:29 am

Ive noticed your dinners and most of your meals seem on the small side. Do you agree? Is this something you ve always done or do to maintain your desired weight?


55 KathEats January 23, 2012 at 8:49 am

They don’t seem small to me? That was a big dinner plate


56 ~Christy January 23, 2012 at 1:54 pm

love love love mexican food — looking at those pics makes me hungry! YUM! 😀


57 Janna Lauver January 24, 2012 at 12:16 pm

Hi again from Montana – It’s been a long winter already but we were thinking about you & Matt when we pulled out the snow shoes. One year ago you were trekking across that frozen lake! :)

In lieu of LOST on DVD: I highly recommend using Netflix streaming for $7.99 a month. We got set up last month and guess what? All six season of LOST online. I started again from beginning last Tuesday!

Hope all is well in C-ville. Maybe the two of us (plus baby Peyton) will make a trip out to see your store?


58 KathEats January 24, 2012 at 5:25 pm

Glad to know they are all online!!!

The problem is watching TV on my tiny computer screen is no fun – the big couch is much better! I think I found a friend who has the whole series!

You three should def. come visit us!
