Shiratake, Inception and Hummus To-Go

Oh finally it is the weekend. Thank goodness. I was starting to feel like the workday would never end. :-( I’m so glad to be home! I have an exciting weekend coming up!

But lets rewind a bit to Thursday. Last night I came home from work to make a quick and easy dinner. I had previously picked up some Tofu Shiratake Noodles to try! Hungry Girl raves about these because they are so low calorie and apparently a great substitute for pasta, so I wanted to see what the big fuss was about.

I was shocked to find the whole bag of noodles was only 40 calories. That made me a happy girl! I decided to just warm them up in the microwave after draining and rinsing them and using the noodles like I would spaghetti. I just threw the last of the roasted red pepper bruschetta and some Parmesan cheese onto them.

The noodles themselves didn’t have much flavor, and were kind of chewy since they’re tofu, but they didn’t taste too bad! I ate the whole bowl because I was starving and I love the bruschetta. ;-)  I would buy these noodles again since they are so guilt-free!

After dinner, I had to get ready because Chris and I had some extremely late night plans that evening…we were going to the midnight showing of Inception at the Spectrum Theater!

I have been waiting months for this movie to come out! It was pretty interesting because I wasn’t really sure what is about, all I knew is that the preview looked awesome and I love all of the actors in it. It was SO worth seeing at midnight because it was incredible! I’m not going to talk much about it because I don’t want to give away the plot, but it will definitely make you think and stare in awe at the special effects! I love movies like that. :-)

Needless to say, I didn’t get to sleep last night until 3:00AM and had to get up at 7:00AM for work…which had me running on four hours of sleep all day. That that equals an unhappy person at work. :-(

Lunch today was sort of unplanned, so I got something quick at my Department’s cafeteria. The one healthy choice in the whole entire lunchroom. Sabra Hummus and pretzels! Have you ever seen a package like this?

The only downside: I ran out of pretzels! I had to go get some more from my co-worker so I could eat the rest of the yummy hummus. :-)

But I’m so glad to be home now…I just ran three miles on the treadmill in 31 minutes and 40 seconds and it felt really good, despite not getting much sleep last night. I’m about to go finish up my laundry, which I’ve been neglecting for days, and then start baking some superfood cookies for tomorrow’s Blogger Brunch Meet-Up! :-D

  1. I’m scared of those noodles but I might give them a try this week.

    I love those Sabra individuals. I end up using my finger to finish it off :-)

  2. Can’t wait till tomorrow! Do you have the Hungry Girl book? I have it but I hate her– do you want it? HAHA
