Sneaking out of work for lunch + blogging

I feel so naughty right now. I’m blogging on my lunch break FROM HOME! Did I mention that our new condo is a block away from my work? I don’t think this will ever get old. I just finished a delicious lunch in my peaceful apartment and now I get to blog (but very quickly because I do need to get back to work). So so cool 😎

Thank you all again for your happy birthday wishes to Adam. He skimmed through my last post and went straight to the comments section and was shocked to see that everyone was wishing him a happy birthday. Did you tell them it was my birthday? he asked.  Hehe, that will teach him not reading my posts in great detail 😉 Anyways, he loved it so thank you! I ended up taking him out to KO Prime – a modern steakhouse. I’m not much of a steakhouse person and Adam loves them but since I’m never really in the mood for one, it usually ends up being a treat for him on his birthday. This dinner was great, but I’ll have to do a separate post for it. My camera battery actually decided to die on me right at the beginning of dinner and I almost freaked out, but it held up enough to take 1 picture at a time, and completely died after a quick photo of dessert. Phew! :)

Here are the rest of yesterday’s eats…

Breakfast: 2 Nature’s Path buckwheat blueberry waffles with Barney Butter and Maine blueberries + iced coffee


I really liked these waffles! They did not taste cardboard-y like many whole wheat/healthy waffles taste to me, and the wildberries made the house smell amazing when I was toasting them. I think they are going to replace my previously beloved Kashi Heart 2 Heart waffles due to great taste and a superior ingredients list. :) The Maine blueberries were so tiny and cute. Loved them! :mrgreen:

Mid-morning snack: strawberry chobani (the last one from my old stash. I’m sticking to organic dairy going forward)

Lunch was with a friend at b.good. I ordered my favorite salad – the southwestern chicken: mesclun, avocado, corn, tomatoes, black beans, toasted corn, chipotle balsamic dressing

The toasted corn is the best part! So crunchy and delicious!!! I need to find a way to replicate it at home 😀

And then I decided to stop by the house to wish Adam a happy birthday in person (he was still sleeping when I left for work)… he took the day off to relax and do a little more unpacking. His parents ended up popping in at the same time and brought him a birthday cake. Sweet! 😀

I had a slice of this delicious strawberry cheesecake. This piece was tiny so I went back for seconds 😉

I’m so happy at this new place! Hopefully work will settle down in a few days. I need to get a lot done because I’m going away this weekend for 5 days… will share my plans with you soon! 😛 How is your week going? Mine is flying by!

  • Ah, so glad to hear your move went smoothly! And I am awfully jealous of your commute :)

  • Kate G.

    I am still a student but i have a part time job that is only a mile from my apartment, i LOVE leaving for work five minutes before my shift starts :)

    Glad to hear you are enjoying your new place!

  • The week is going well but not fast enough. Still begging for photos of your new digs.

  • sister inna

    ohhh that cheesecake looks divine!
    and i am SO JEALOUS i wish i could have lunch at home every day.

  • A block away?? I’m so jealous!!

  • What a great commute!

    I haven’t had frozen waffles in a dog’s age but those look so good I might have to change that fact. :)

  • K

    Kashi’s Heart 2 Heart are my ultimate fav. waffle so I may have to try this one!

    Oh man, that cheesecake! Looks delicious!!

  • sue

    i really hate the texture of kashi waffles, so if you say these are better i’ll have to try them. i’m looking forward to seeing your ko prime post- glad your camera made it to dessert :)

  • What a beautiful cake! Looks delish!

  • I have a rather technical question! :( Haha, sorry, I’m just amazed you posted so quickly. Who do you host through, publish through? I go right through WordPress, I think it might be slowing me down. Writing and getting through a post takes me forever!!

  • Ahh–you’re in the new place! Congrats! And belated birthday wishes to Adam. That is awesome that you are so close to work!! I see lots of blogging potential 😉

  • haha, i do that too 😉 (going home in the middle of the work day–except i usually wind up staying too long!) have a great trip elina!!!

  • Getting to go home for lunch is wonderful! Getting to go home for lunch and find that cheesecake is being delivered at the same time….there are no words! That looked amazing!

  • Elina

    Kelly, it’s not ready for public yet. I’ll share some pics soon. I promise :)

    Courtney, I use wordpress too but I resize the pictures before uploading to 500 px first. The pictures are still good quality and it significantly cuts down on upload time. I also recently added a pluggin to be able to upload multiple pictures at the same time, but it’s kind of broken so I wouldn’t necessarily recommend it (yet). My goal is to learn how to use Ecto asap. I think it will really save me a lot of time in the future!

  • Yum! Love the blueberry topped blueberry waffles. How bout that Barney Butter/PB2 swap?? Maybe when I get back? That cheesecake looks bomb and I don’t even like cheesecake haha.

  • […] I’m adding the “b.good burger” to my rotation at b.good (current other favorites: southwestern chicken salad and the turkey el […]
