Another busy, busy day!
Thanksgiving was all about bread. It seems (so far) that Christmas is all about specialty sweets and big boxes to bring to parties and friends!
I worked until 1pm, with minimal snacking except for a slice of Spinach Feta at 11am because my stomach was growling. This is a pretty active job, so I’m not doing formal workouts this week (my legs would give out!) but I am walking to and from the bakery everyday (about 3 miles) and on my feet for lots of hours!
Lunch today was leftover salad, enhanced with sandwich veggies and some hummus and served with a slice of Cville Crunch topped with our Curried Tuna
For dessert I tasted the Cranberry Orange muffin and the Ginger Cookie!
The boss says I better get back to work!
Krissy @ Shiawase Life says
The curried tuna looks wonderful! I am jealous that you have such an active job and live in a walkable area. I hope to one day at least have the walkable part, but hope to do a ton with social media for a career so the computer-friendly job may leave me with an inactive work environment. I love my group fitness class sweat sessions, but to be able to get my activity in while I’m on my way to/from and at work would be a great time saver.
Kinley @ Better Off Barefoot says
Oh I love ginger cookies at this time of year!!
[email protected] for the Soul says
Mmmm those baked goods look yummy!~~I think your active lifestyle philosophy is awesome, Kath!! It’s not just about working out, but just moving around a lot is part of that lifestyle as well. It’s hard to do that in socal because if we walked to places, we’d never get anything done, haha 😛
That’s a good lookin’ tomato for December. I’m generally afraid of them this time of year.
They’re actually local hydroponic tomatoes! They’re not summery, but they’re not bad either
I was just about to comment on this as well! They look pretty awesome for December!
Not bad looking at all. I was just thinking how I miss those delectable summertime tomatoes. It seems like ages ago since I’ve dared to go near one.

your salad looks so delicious and refreshing!! yum!
The Mrs @ Success Along the Weigh says
GINGER COOKIES!!!! Love. Them.
Hope @ With A Side Of Hope says
Cranberry orange muffin sounds delicious! I bet your bakery is smelling heavenly right now. Yum! 🙂
Johanna B says
Ginger cookies are one of my favorites. This year I found a good GF recipe so I can have them again. Good lookin’ salad BTW.
I love that your husband is your boss;) Easy way to get a promotion/holiday bonus! 😉
Hannah @ eat, drink, and save money says
Working on your feet can totally be counted as a work out. I may have counted mall shopping and table decorating as a workout this week!
Susan H. @ the food allergy chronicles says
Your lunch does look ‘refreshing’ . Love curried tuna…used to have a lovely curried tuna at ‘Chez Piggy’ in Kingston, Ontario years ago…all because of the tuna rolls my mom would make, wrap in foil , freeze and then warm up in the oven…great for a crowd on New Year’s Day. Gosh, I haven’t made those in years…my hubbie loves them…need to write note to self. lol
Ashley @ Coffee Cake and Cardio says
what a mean boss 😉
Your lunch looks delicious, especially the curried tuna 🙂 I definitely wish I lived in a walkable area & could walk to my job. It would be great to be able to combine most of my exercise with my daily activities. However, I live in a fairly rural area and drive nearly an hour each way to my job… I’m hoping to move in the next year or two (away from the winter in Ohio!) & definitely will be attempting to live much closer to my job.
Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat says
Love the curried tuna (like the other commenters on this post so far!!) and I think it’s great that you get to be so active in your job! I know it probably isn’t as glamorous as it sounds in many ways, but I’d love to be able to walk around and be active for more of my day (outside of the gym of course!) Have a great afternoon!
Katie @ Peace Love & Oats says
haha you’ve got a tough boss there! I hope you’re enjoying the busy energy!
kathleen @ the daily crumb says
i love when life provides a built in workout!
so jealous of the delicious sweets surrounding you 🙂
Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga says
The muffin and the cookie..yum. You have the best desserts!
And I hope you’re not working too hard…even though the boss said get back to work 🙂
Cait's Plate says
That ginger cookie looks insane. And I’m still dying over the spinach and feta dough you used for the pizza last night! As a Greek girl, that is definitely my kinda bread 😉
I used to work over 40 hours a week at a cafe in high school and it’s definitely a workout!
Fran@ Broken Cookies Don't Count says
Salad with hummus is a great idea!
Lauren @ Oatmeal after Spinning says
Being around those beautiful loaves of Dakota bread all day… I don’t know how you can show such restraint! I guess maybe after a while it doesn’t seem “as” special anymore? Or maybe it does, and you just have superpowers not to devour a whole loaf. 🙂
Lisa (bakebikeblog) says
Best of luck for the busy period – although you guys look like you have it well under control!
My only form of exercise each day is one simple walk. No gym and no running at all. Just one walk. I hope that is enough, because it has to be for me.
I’ll take both the bread and the speciality treats!
Ah, different day, different name.
What do you mean Jen?
You and Lori share an IP address
Perhaps they are roomates?
No it was a misunderstanding. All cleared up!
sorry… but I’m confused for two reasons: What does ANY of this have to do with Kath’s post?
And how can posting as two different people from the same IP address be a “misunderstanding”? Creeps me out :/
Emily @ Life on Food says
Haha, of course Christmas is all about the sweet treats. Last weekend I had my first cinnamon chip scone. It was amazing. I am glad I only get to a Great Harvest once a month or so since it is such a long trip. Love the last photo.
Ah cute boss! Has he asked you out yet? 🙂
Gina @ Running to the Kitchen says
I’m usually not a huge ginger fan but that cookie looks scrumptious 🙂
Christine @ Oatmeal in my Bowl says
The curried tuna looks great. In fact, the whole lunch looks great as its on the light side. Much different than my work’s smorgasbord of continuous never ending goodies.
Andrea @ The Skinny Chronicles says
Ruh row. Busted by the boss 🙂 Happy holidays and happy baking! I’m off to bake the chocolate chip cookies I meant to get to two weeks ago…
Cat @Breakfast to Bed says
Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without pumpernickel bread and spinach dip!!! Yay for bread!!!
Yum! I want some more of that tuna salad!
Lexi @ A Spoonful of Sunshine says
“Salad with sandwich fixings” — perfectly paradoxical haha. Love it!
we got a great harvest basket at work and i thought of you!
Stacy @ Say It With Sprinkles says
Sweets & treats always make the holidays feel so cozy!
Kelly @ Foodie Fiasco says
Whoa, the lighting in the bakery is really cool. How did I not pick up on that before?
I think those are calamata olives on your salad. I absolutely love, love, love calamata olives!!! I could eat half a jar of them when we have them on-hand 🙂
Holiday season is like a trump card for sweets any time of the day :)!
