Friday Five

Happy Friday the 13th! My Friday would be a lot happier if Kevin didn’t have to work Saturday and Sunday, just like he did last weekend. Boo!

I’m trying to refrain from giving his boss a piece of my mind. Who makes someone work 19 long days in a row??? Beware of crazy prego hormones!

Anywhooo… time to focus on other things, like these Five for Friday.

1. Kabocha squash. I think I finally tried it, but I’m not sure. I scooped this baby up at a flea market last weekend for $2. The outside and shape are kabocha-ish, but the inside was more like an acorn squash. Hybrid? Either way – I’m not going to complain about any squash that’s less than 99-cents per pound.

squash2. Sandwich thins. We have a love/hate relationship. What’s with the crumb things on top? They don’t add flavor or significant texture. They’re just messy. Really messy.

egg3. The whole job situation has finally hit me. At first it just felt like a bad dream – like I was just going to wake up and go in to work. Well… I’m not. I’ve found myself moping around pathetically, and I’ve gotta cut.it.out.

cut-it-out4. I successfully made a blackberry cobbler. I tried to healthify one in the past and totally failed. This time, I went all-out… or at least mostly out. It turned out much better, which is good since this one isn’t for me!

cobbler5. I just heard back about a freelance article I pitched. Woohoo! I mean, it’s not published yet, so I shouldn’t get pumped. I’m just happy someone wrote me back with possible interest.

happyBTW: Designer Whey winners, I’m sorry you haven’t received the goodies yet. I just found out that the company expects to ship them out soon. Please forgive the delay!

  1. Hmm, I think that looks like kabocha squash? I’m not sure! But I’m jealous you potentially managed to find it! I haven’t seen it in stores/markets yet and I’m seriously craving it!

    Sorry about the job situation girl – I know it must be hard. But that’s great news about interest in your freelance article! Who knows, that could lead to a whole new path for you!

  2. That’s awesome about your article!! Good work!! My fingers are crossed that it gets published! :)

  3. My husband read me a quote last night that made me think of you… Here it is: “You might be facing an end today, but a beginning is just around the corner. It’s never too late to become what you might have become.” Stay positive girl! ;)

  4. I love the Thomas Everything Bagel Thins!

  5. Bummer Kevin has to work again this weekend! That’s got to be so tough. Sandwich thins are so awesome. In fact, I kind of forgot about them. Thanks for the reminder! I’ve got to pick some up this weekend.

  6. I’m excited it’s squash season! I think butternut is my favorite. I’ve never had Kabocha, guess i’ll have to try it.

  7. Lisa says:

    Ohh, that’s a weird looking kabocha. I can’t tell if it is one or isn’t. I think you’ll know when you taste it…if it’s delicious it is – if not it isn’t one ;)
    I totally know what you mean about the job situation. It can be hard to focus on the positives, but try to remember how much better it feels to feel good about the situation versus feeling bad about it. I bet something great will come from this!

  8. congrats on your article!! thats awesome! and way to take control back after being laid off, you’ll be just fine :) and that blackberry cobbler looks AMAZING!! happy weekend :)

  9. The job situation totally sucks but a successful blackberry cobbler and potential freelance article are two awesome things so try to find the sunshine :) Hoping you have a wonderful weekend friend. Keep your head up and bake more ;)

  10. Fingers crossed for the article!! Keep us posted :)

  11. So cool that you cooked with Kabocha – I’m planning my first this weekend. :) And YAY on the article – so exciting!!!

  12. I kind of wish I was laid off! Work has been owning me lately.

  13. That’s such great news about the freelance response!!! Everything happens for a reason… maybe you were meant to go another path!

  14. Dang 19 straight days of work?! What does he do?

  15. Fingers crossed for your article- that is great news!
    Blackberry cobbler sounds good (is that like a crumble? I am not sure we have that in England!)- I picked some blackberries this week and had some this morning cooked with some apple and cinnamon on pancakes- so delicious.

  16. Very exciting news about the freelance article! Looking forward to reading it once it’s published :)

  17. Nikki says:

    Best wishes with the article :) Yum to that cobbler!

  18. I think the crumbly things are just for aesthetics, and possibly a little bran/nutrients. They are messy though! That’s great about your article, I hope it gets published!
