Lock Me Up

and throw away the key!

I had the In A Jiffy Curry Chickpea burgers for both lunch and dinner. And let’s not forget breakfast either. Like Miley, I cannot be tamed.

and they are just so darn healthy it hurts!

Eric gave his seal of approval and he doesn’t like curry, but says they aren’t too spicy.

We got in a great In A Jiffy inspired Brick workout today, despite this blistering heat!

Leg 1 = Run:

  • 2.10 miles in 19:20 mins

 

Leg 2 = Bike:

  • 3.25 miles in 21 mins

 

The bike ride was so much fun…we went through the trail again and I finished really strong (once I got over the cobwebs, new rocks, and major over-growth!).

Dinner was also In A Jiffy

That would be one of my ridiculous sized salads in a casserole dish. I cannot eat salads in salad bowls as they are much too small.

I am always asked, ‘Are you really going to eat all that salad?!’ and I grin and say ‘Yes, why yes I am.’

I remember a few weeks ago, I made a salad so big that I just couldn’t finish it all. I put it in the fridge and it got all mushy. That was a very sad day. I tried to pawn it off on Eric to eat and he looked at me like I had two heads.

This amazing salad contained: mixed greens (~5 cups), TJ’s lime salsa, sugar snap peas, shredded carrots (lol), 1 x-large In a Jiffy curry chickpea burger, 3 green onions, tomato, better than bottled balsamic vinaigrette.

It was bliss in a bowl casserole dish.

Now back to the pictures of pictures…

Firstly, Thank you for all of your wonderful suggestions and ideas!

Secondly, many of you were asking if I could put my prints in an Etsy store. I am definitely considering it. Does anyone know if it is possible to have an Etsy store automatically donate a percentage to charity? I would like to do that if possible.

We are pretty happy with this arrangement above, but perhaps it could be improved by re-arranging a couple pictures…any ideas?

It will be going on this wall:

IMG 2816 thumb   Lock Me Up

This was my inspiration (from Young House Love) I printed off the photo and brought it with me to the kitchen table!

IMG 2818 thumb   Lock Me Up

I would love if you could vote on your favourite arrangement below!

A)

IMG 2680 thumb1   Lock Me Up

B)

IMG 2820 thumb   Lock Me Up

C)

IMG 2823 thumb   Lock Me Up

D)

IMG 2824 thumb   Lock Me Up 

E)

IMG 2826 thumb   Lock Me Up 

F)

Note that this below is NOT included in the poll as it resembles a headless person!  First, carrot showgirls and now headless picture people, what next!?  :biggrin:

IMG 2825 thumb   Lock Me Up

Arrangement A, B, C, D, or E (or perhaps another??) will be going on this wall:

IMG 2687 thumb1   Lock Me Up

If you think of something else, please tell me what you would do instead!

See you tomorrow AM for tons of fun market goodies! I need to get back to my market prep…

Bye!

I like A and D… (I voted…)

I like things that are asymmetrical.

you and your trail runs… you are SO much braver than I… I CANNOT STAND cobwebs and I’m SO afraid of spiders!

Catie July 16, 2010

I vote c. I love this idea of your food pics on the walls.

Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday July 16, 2010

Agreed! C is best

Faith @ LovelyAsCharged July 16, 2010

I had a good laugh as I read about your casserole dish salad while I shoveled my own salad into my mouth from a 2 1/2 quart mixing bowl. The looks I get from people regarding the amount of food I eat always crack me up – heck, just because I eat very healthily doesn’t mean I can’t pack it away!

Kelly July 16, 2010

I voted for B b/c I like balance but not necessarily symmetry. I love love it that you eat salad out of casserole dishes. I usually don’t eat salads that large unless I’m at the Whole Foods or Earth Fare salad bar, but maybe I should do it at home as well. I always feel a little gluttonous when my dinner companion’s salad rings up $5 less than mine…but it is salad after all. :)

Jessica @ How Sweet It Is July 16, 2010

I really like C!

Reply

Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter July 16, 2010

A lot of people are liking A! I voted D, I like the asymmetry of it.

Bethany @ More Fruit Please July 16, 2010

I think B is a great layout that you could add more too later if you ever wanted to!

Rosey Rebecca July 16, 2010

I cannot thank you enough for leaving advice on my running dilemma post! You are so awesome!

I voted for A, as the majority of other voters have so far. I think it looks great like that.

I LOVE your casserole dish salad! And HATE when salad gets all mushy in the fridge. I just had a very weird image pop into my head a coffee pot filled with salad. Please do this and let me know how it turns out. Thanks. (ha!)

Have a beautiful night!

I also eat giant salads out of casserole dishes, otherwise there’s not enough room to mix everything together! I also almost always put shredded carrot in salads, even quicky thrown-together side salads. I just love their texture and sweetness. I’m also going to eat the same things for dinner that I had for lunch!

I like C the best, but I’m a fan of symmetry.

Your chickpea burgers look so delicious. I will have to make them soon.

Heather (Heather's Dish) July 16, 2010

i love ‘em all! ah! i can’t decide…it’s all so adorable :)

erica July 16, 2010

i voted for D, but now that i look at it….how about a slight variation on A…same clusters set further apart and at a diagonal instead of all side by side?

Reply

mary July 16, 2010

voted A ;)

Jessica @ Rawtumn July 16, 2010

Oooh that’s hard, I LOVE “C” but “D” is really unique as well.

Sarah July 16, 2010

I love all of the photos. C is my favorite arrangement!

Reply

Camille July 16, 2010

There’s nothing wrong with eating the same food when it looks so darn delicious!
If you put any of your prints on Etsy, I would for sure buy some!

Vivian July 16, 2010

I say “A”, too :)

Amy @ be.you.ti.fully, a.musing July 16, 2010

C all the way!

Mellissa July 16, 2010

I vote for C

Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat July 16, 2010

I’m on the fence between C and E, but I voted C. Love the cherry picture!

I too cannot eat my salad from regular-sized bowls. Go big or not at all is my motto! When you say TJ’s lime salsa, you mean Trader Joe’s right? Can you actually find that here or was it a blogger prezzie of some sort? I’m dying to get my hands on some TJ goodies!

It was from my friend Ash when she came to visit me :)

Dominika July 16, 2010

I think A looks too symmetrical. I vote B!

Lisa @ bakebikeblog July 16, 2010

oooooh looking good!!!!!

Anya @ Fitness & Sunshine July 16, 2010

I love option D. Asymmetrical and very modern. :)

I started a yeast diet a few days ago on the advice of an allergist (no sugar whatsoever, no yeast, no ‘moldy’ foods, no caffeine, and I threw in no dairy just because I might as well….I’m basically eating lots and lots of veggies, nuts, seeds, meats and a bit of plain grain for good measure) I’ve been eating ginormous salads for lunch everyday, and I’m with you – a casserole dish works perfectly! Seriously! how they expect people to get any nutrition from a salad bowl is beyond me!

Reply

Liz @ Tip Top Shape July 16, 2010

Wow, I cannot believe you eat an entire casserole dish of salad. I’m a bit jealous of your eating skills, haha.

Reply

Maria @ Oh Healthy Day July 16, 2010

C all the way! Its unexpected and eye catching!

It also allows you the potential to add even more photos to it, such as the example you used.

Reply

kelli July 16, 2010

hahahaa I eat huge salads like you also and people do say are you going to eat all that haha

Reply

Michelle July 16, 2010

You’re going to have to find your very own extra large bowl just for salad – there’s got to be a cute one out there somewhere!
I personally like E, I like the symmetry of it.

Reply

Diana @ VEGeneration July 16, 2010

I voted for C! And yes to huge salads — i always use a gigantic bowl for mine :D

Reply

MaryZ July 16, 2010

Love these pics! I like both C and D…voted for C.

Your casserole sized salad made me drool. Must try the jiffy burgers!!!

Annie D @ Annie's Simple Life July 16, 2010

I like A and C the best, but voted for C.

HOLY MASSIVE SALAD, BATMAN!!! Love it! :)

Mae July 16, 2010

I like B, and I think it would be even better if you switched the position of the asparagus with the picture above it.

Reply

Mae July 16, 2010

Oops, I meant E, but that’s basically like A, so A is my new answer. Can I change my answer?
