No Words.

December 2, 2009

The hardest part of blogging is coming up with the words. So many nights I want to let the photos do the talking, but then I feel the need to explain!!

Classes were all about presentations today. I must have listened to 15 different topics. Some were very interesting, some were not 😳

Mid-class snack consumed at 4:30

And a 5:30 orange because I was bored and just wanted the Christmas smell of citrus in the air :)

I arrived home not too hungry at 8:00 and heated up last night’s leftover soup along with some salted snow peas in the microwave. The peas cooked while the soup heated. Real Simple.

Plus Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride

At 9 I was ready to have that dessert I’d been craving all day. A half cup of TEMPT Coffee Biscotti topped with some Brownie Points Outsiders. These brownies are SOOO GOOD!! Totally fudgy!! I had another straight from the freezer bag. Go tell VeggieGirl you want some for your birthday :)

Got about 20 emails to answer> and then I’m off to read some Wicked.

Hehe, thank you for the shout-out, my friend 😀

I always tend to zone out during presentations. I know I shouldn’t, but it’s just something I tend to do. I always intend on paying attention, but that usually doesn’t last long :)

Your dessert looks divine!


3 Courtney (The Hungry Yogini) December 2, 2009 at 9:24 pm

I hear ya!! Have a good night. Enjoy Wicked!

Oooh, and where did you buy your Holiday Tea? I have been looking EVERYWHERE!!!


4 Kath December 2, 2009 at 9:25 pm

Harris Teeter!

I mini jar is such a cool way to carry granola


6 Lauren @ eater not a runner December 2, 2009 at 9:28 pm

Your dinner looks so good! Wish I could find that tea around here :-/


7 Heather @ Health, Happiness, and Hope December 2, 2009 at 9:29 pm

I have been wanting to try that Stonyfield flavor so bad, but I haven’t found it anywhere! Looks like a might have to wait until next year. :(

LOVE your dessert. Perfect way to end the evening!


8 coco December 2, 2009 at 9:30 pm

have a great night! 😀 No words, beautiful pictures! as always!


9 Estela @ Weekly Bite December 2, 2009 at 9:32 pm

I hear you on the words thing…

somedays they just don’t flow…

Your pictures do tell a story… they’re great pictures :)


10 Kristin @ Iowa Girl Eats December 2, 2009 at 9:32 pm

Mmm – it’s been FAR too long since I’ve had some ice cream! Thinking I need to pick up a carton :)


11 Anne [email protected] Weigh of Life December 2, 2009 at 9:33 pm

I completely agree with you-sometimes finding the words is very hard!


12 lauren December 2, 2009 at 9:39 pm

Confession: I spend too much time reading blogs. When my gas pump total hit $26.26 tonight, I instantly thought of you! Nuts.


13 Kath December 2, 2009 at 9:45 pm

Haha. I am corrupting you all!!


14 Jessica @ How Sweet It Is December 2, 2009 at 9:40 pm

Dessert looks delicious!


15 candice December 2, 2009 at 9:42 pm

I’d say you have at least 10,000 words per post… more if you count actual words 😉 I wouldn’t mind just gawking at your pictures, to be honest. They’re gorrrgeous.

Your dessert looks so yummy! The description of fudginess just killed me. Have a relaxing evening!


16 Kath December 2, 2009 at 9:45 pm

Aww thanks :) Took me a minute to get it :)


17 Shannon (The Daily Balance) December 2, 2009 at 9:47 pm

That lil veggiegirl is the BESTEST 😉

Enjoy Wicked! (I can’t remember — have you seen the musical?!)


18 Kath December 2, 2009 at 9:48 pm

No, but my mom might be getting me tickets for the show in May here!!


19 lynn (The Actors Diet) December 2, 2009 at 9:53 pm

my grocery store doesn’t carry pumpkin stonyfield OR sugar cookie tea, both of which i’ve been seeing all over the blogs!!! waaaah!


20 Hillary - Nutrition Nut on the Run December 2, 2009 at 10:01 pm

Dinner and dessert look great! I was wondering if you ever get tired/bored of blogging. You’re so consistent (which I love), but do you ever feel like not snapping a photo of your food or writing? I’m new to the whole blogging world, and as much as I love it, it seems as though it could get monotonous. Just curious! Keep it up : )


21 Kath December 3, 2009 at 8:45 am

I don’t really ever get bored of it, but sometimes I wish I could just go to bed!! As soon as I start posting though, I’m glad I did. Kinda like exercise :)


22 Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg December 2, 2009 at 10:02 pm

Love that salt on the snow peas! It looks like snow :-)


23 Carolyn December 2, 2009 at 10:04 pm

I did a no words post at halloween. I just loved the pictures SO much!!


24 Julia December 2, 2009 at 10:05 pm

That mini jar is such a good idea for carrying granola! Also, I finally found the Stonyfield pumpkin pie yogurt here in Nashville… I hope they keep it around for a while!


25 Lisa @bakebikeblog December 2, 2009 at 10:06 pm

ooooh what a yummy looking dessert!


26 Sam (Merit to the Carrot) December 2, 2009 at 10:21 pm

You could do an entire post of pictures alone and still get the same amount of readers, if not more. Your pictures are magazine quality, top notch! I mean, that dessert is mouthwatering!



27 Jordan Wandfluh December 2, 2009 at 10:35 pm

I love Stonyfield yogurt but never knew they had pumpkin pie. Is that seasonal? Or do you think the grocery stores near me just don’t carry it?


28 Cynthia (It All Changes) December 2, 2009 at 10:41 pm

When presentations are not interesting it is the worst. Opening the orange would have kept me awake with the smell.


29 Paula December 2, 2009 at 10:55 pm

I am more of a pictures kid anyways. I am discouraged when blogs have no pictures and way to much to read. Just pictures works to. :)


30 Meggilizz December 2, 2009 at 11:13 pm

Yep that is defo one thing about school that I don’t miss–listening to everyone else’s presentations!!!!! Dinner looks great on this grey rainy day!!! So does dessert for that matter!! 😀


31 Danielle December 2, 2009 at 11:33 pm

A picture is worth, most definitely, a thousand words. Glad you’re taking some time off to rest and enjoy some VG treats :)

P.S. I’m hosting my first giveaway! I have a feeling that you and the husband will be quite interested in what I have to offer 😉 check it out!


32 AnnQ December 2, 2009 at 11:49 pm

Ooooohhhh….I saw Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride Tea at WF tonight and thought about getting some. Think I might just pick some up next time!


33 Karla December 3, 2009 at 12:12 am

Pictures can say a lot :) Someday we all need a break from writing.


34 Sheila | Live Well 360° December 3, 2009 at 12:29 am

Sometimes… I just skim the pics… is that bad to say?? LOL. XO


35 Sheila | Live Well 360° December 3, 2009 at 12:30 am

…only when I’m in a hurry though. Haha…


36 Naomi (onefitfoodie) December 3, 2009 at 5:37 am

salted snow peas sound fantastic! i want to get the real simple mag subscription

coffee biscotti ice cream?!! perfection :)


37 Stacey December 3, 2009 at 6:20 am

I used the same Real Simple recipe on thanksgiving! Have a lovely night 😀


38 Mandy December 3, 2009 at 6:21 am

Kath…I am buying tickets for Wicked today. I am taking my daughter and her friend in February. Would you recommend the book for a very bright 15 year old? I have never seen the show and I do not know much about the story/content, but I thought the book might be a nice Christmas gift to tide her over until February.
Mandy (AKA Funky Lady)


39 Kath December 3, 2009 at 8:46 am

a very bright 15-year-old – definitely. (One who hates reading, no so much :) ) I think reading the book first would really enhance the musical (although I haven’t seen it yet!) It’s very slow at times, but I’m enjoying it more now (about 75% of the way through).



40 Mom December 3, 2009 at 6:24 am


The show’s plot is slightly tricky. Kath’s sister said reading the book helped, even though it may differ some from the musical (not sure about that part.)



41 Lauren December 3, 2009 at 6:25 am

I’ve been searching and searching for the Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride tea, but apparently it hasn’t yet graced the store shelves for the season here in Boston. I drank so much of it last year, I think I got hooked!


42 Amy December 3, 2009 at 7:06 am

If you ever have a chance to see Wicked on Broadway, do it! My favorite show ever!


43 Jessica December 3, 2009 at 7:41 am

The best tea EVER!!! I happened to find it and thought this would be interesting…

now, i cant find anymore to stock up on…


44 Paige(Running Around Normal) December 3, 2009 at 8:22 am

Ugh..presentations. At least you had snacks all throughout to keep you awake, right:)

That brownie sounds amazing! VeggieGirl is pretty awesome.


45 Lily @ Lily's Health Pad December 3, 2009 at 9:25 am

Sugar cookie sleigh ride is seriously my favorite right now! It tastes like a cookie-but in tea form!


46 Maggie December 3, 2009 at 9:47 am

Repeating what everyone has already said but it’s true: your pictures are gorgeous.

Love the mini-jar you used for your granola. So cute!


47 SP December 3, 2009 at 9:52 am

I love Wicked, one of my favorite books!! The musical was good, but completely different from the book – the musical is much more family-friendly and not nearly as dark. Enjoy the book!


48 emmy - eatventures December 3, 2009 at 10:28 am

Just FYI for the Wicked questions – I would recommend NOT reading the book first if you are seeing the show. The book is fabulous. The show is also fabulous. But they are fabulous in different ways. When my friends and I saw the show I was distracted by the differences from the book that I noticed, while my friends who had not read the book were able to just enjoy.


49 Megan December 3, 2009 at 1:21 pm

I read the Wicked book after seeing the musical, and I wouldn’t necessarily read it before seeing the musical. I ADORED the musical–probably the best I’ve seen on Broadway (ok, fine, probalby tied with Rent–wonderful in differnet ways!!). I didn’t love the book, and agree with the above poster who says reading the book first might be a distraction.


50 Jenna December 3, 2009 at 1:53 pm

wow! that dessert sure does look yummy :)


51 Funky Lady December 3, 2009 at 3:42 pm

Thanks all…not that you mentioin it, I think I will suggest she read the book after the show. She becomes very irritated when a movie deviates from the book (i.e. Harry Potter). She is probably up to her eyeballs in required reading until summertime anyways. I did buy my tickets today and I am now $200 poorer (not to mention the dinner/parking) but I am very excited to see the show…on March 7!!!
