Egg Pizza

in All Posts

Update:  I am raffling off this AMAZING Breville Juicer for the Livestrong Foundation tomorrow.  Tickets are just $5; check back tomorrow for details. Just a heads up! πŸ™‚

 

Afternoon!  :)  The Husband took off work today, so we’re hanging out in the office together.  He’s studying for board exam #3 now.    Husband says hello!

I made use an egg-tastic lunch:

I love egg pizza!  It reminded me of a breakfast burrito, but it’s even better because the egg becomes a little crunchy in the oven.

 

Plus, I load it up with vegetables!

IMG_7694

To make the pizza, I cooked mushrooms and onions in a wok, put them aside, and then cooked the eggs (I used 3 and split between the Husband and I).  I smothered a whole wheat pita with pasta sauce, and then I added the veggies, eggs, diced tomatoes, and Cheddar cheese to the top.

 

After baking at 350 for 17 minutes… Yum!

Plus, a Green Monster.  I’m slowly working my way through a 2.5 bag of spinach!

IMG_7685

My GM contained: 1 banana, 2 cups raw spinach, and 1 cup vanilla almond milk.

 

Two things:  You have until 1 PM EST to enter the MBT.com β€˜anti-shoe’ raffle!  Will contact the winners later.  Good luck.  :)   And for an interesting discussion about Exercise Compulsion, check out Heather’s most recent post.  My thoughts are in comment #26!

    You know you are a food blogger when you can spend 3+ hours in a grocery store and the sight of Caramel Oikos earns a loud squeal… that then earns you some unusual looks πŸ˜€

    The breakfast pizza looks AWESOME!! That just may be my dinner tonight…

    • Molly @thevegandorm March 4, 2010, 5:41 pm

      I saw coconut milk Kefir at my local grocery store yesterday and literally had a meltdown. People definitely thought I was insane haha.

      • Erin March 4, 2010, 7:01 pm

        OMG the coconut milk Kefir is soooo good…so good that I had to go online to their website and tell them I was in love πŸ™‚

  • Paige (Running Around Normal) March 4, 2010, 12:47 pm

    That breakfast pizza looks delicious!
    I’ve totally done the chair thing, and had my husband totally worried I’d fall off LOL.
    You know you’re a food blogger when you act like grocery shopping is a chore to your husband, but secretly, it’s one of your favorite forms of shopping!

  • Allison (Eat Clean Live Green) March 4, 2010, 12:47 pm

    You know you’re a food blogger when you admire other’s placemats and food staging πŸ™‚

  • Kalli@fitandfortysomething March 4, 2010, 12:48 pm

    I love the egg pizza….you are so creative! Got to try it!

    You know you are a food blogger when you friends EXPECT no INSIST that you take pics of your food and of them…….and they can’t wait to see it on your blog!

    Hee hee love it and love my friends!

  • Allie (Live Laugh Eat) March 4, 2010, 12:48 pm

    Haha I’ve done 2 ‘You know you’re…’ posts. They are so fun. You know you’re a food blogger when you spend 4x longer cooking, plating, and photographing your meal than you do eating it!

  • Angela (Oh She Glows) March 4, 2010, 12:48 pm

    bahaha I always stand on my chairs…glad Im not the only one. πŸ™‚

    • Angela (Oh She Glows) March 4, 2010, 12:51 pm

      U know you’re a food blogger when…

      your partner can rattle off the names of each blog and food blogger because you talk about it so much.

      • Angela (Oh She Glows) March 4, 2010, 1:27 pm

        Just thought of another…when one of your parents knows who KERF is. bahaha

        • Ashley March 4, 2010, 1:34 pm

          hahaha yes!

        • Abby March 4, 2010, 4:26 pm

          That is so funny! When I talk about blogger my husband and mom ask for their “blogging” name. I tell them and they nod in recognition. Oh my.

        • alexe @ soyaetchocolat March 4, 2010, 5:55 pm

          lol! I’m relieved to see that I’m not the only one with the “I saw on a blog that…” problem. My friends and family started understanding the concept better now that I have my blog but it’s still really new in Quebec so I still get the weird looks… πŸ˜›

        • Sammi March 4, 2010, 6:09 pm

          haha my dad knows who caitlin, angela, and skinnyrunner are. πŸ™‚ You know you’re a food blogger when… your regular running conversation is about the lives of other bloggers. (and the person you’re talking to isn’t a blogger but can keep up with the convo since you talk about them so much! lol)

        • Caitlin March 4, 2010, 6:39 pm

          That’s really cute πŸ™‚ I do this too!

        • Angela (Oh She Glows) March 4, 2010, 6:45 pm

          We need to all decide on a city and move there, clearly! πŸ˜‰

  • Jessica @ How Sweet March 4, 2010, 12:49 pm

    Never made an egg pizza, but ti sounds really good!

  • Carrie H March 4, 2010, 12:50 pm

    You are so lucky you have your husband around to treat you! πŸ™‚

    And, I have that book too — it is great, but I think you have to be REALLY dedicated to make it work, as in, if you have to pee at 4 a.m., you have to take your temperature before getting out of bed to determine your ovulation time period, because your accurate temp can change in just that short amount of time out of bed … But I am very seriously considering going off birth control pills (which I’ve been on consistently for 10 years, eeek!) after I run my first marathon in May. We don’t want babies for a couple years, so I think that might be an interesting next physical challenge for myself! πŸ˜‰

  • Tonyne @ Unlikely Success Story March 4, 2010, 12:51 pm

    You know your a food blogger when you decide not to cook a dish because it doesn’t photograph well. πŸ™‚

  • Christie @ Honoring Health March 4, 2010, 12:51 pm

    You go to the Geek Squad Guys because you’ve lost your pictures and when he finds them he says “I found them. um. I think they are of pancakes”.

    • Freya @ Brit Chick Runs March 4, 2010, 1:04 pm

      Haha!! Loves it πŸ˜€

    • Danielle March 4, 2010, 1:07 pm

      That is too funny, love it!

    • Stina @ Girl Can March 4, 2010, 2:12 pm

      That’s too funny – especially since my boyfriend is one of those Geek Squad guys. πŸ™‚

    • Lizz (leadingthegoodlife) March 4, 2010, 4:37 pm

      That’s hilarious! πŸ™‚

    • kate March 4, 2010, 6:43 pm

      hahah!

  • Katie@ Two Lives, One Lifestyle March 4, 2010, 12:52 pm

    You know your a food blogger when your friends and family are always asking “are you going to take a picture of my food too?!” (the ones that think it’s cool) or “Hurry up and take a picture I want to eat” (the ones that don’t quite get why I have a blog).

    • Ashley March 4, 2010, 1:33 pm

      LOL this is SOO true!

  • Bronwyn March 4, 2010, 12:52 pm

    You know you’re a food blogger when you move your food to various areas of your house to find the best light for photographing in.

    • Caitlin March 4, 2010, 12:53 pm

      i took photographs of my dinner in my bathroom the other night. LOL

      • Raya March 4, 2010, 12:54 pm

        HAHA. I’ve done that before too!!

      • Shellybean March 4, 2010, 12:59 pm

        I put pizza dough in front of the space heater in my bathroom b/c it wasn’t rising fast enough…

      • Anna March 4, 2010, 1:02 pm

        when i lived in a dorm room, i always photographed my breakfasts on my suite’s bathroom counter so i wouldn’t wake my roommates. hah.

        • Bronwyn March 4, 2010, 1:12 pm

          Hahaha!

          That’s awesome. I’ll have to remember that one. I can’t say I’ve taken food to my bathroom yet… :p

        • Molly @thevegandorm March 4, 2010, 5:40 pm

          I do that too!!!

  • Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday March 4, 2010, 12:53 pm

    you know you’re a food blogger when you put pumpkin in your oats.

  • Raya March 4, 2010, 12:53 pm

    You know you’re a food blogger when you HAVE to eat your dinner before it gets dark so you can photograph it in natural light. Haha.

  • Lauren @ Eater not a runner March 4, 2010, 12:55 pm

    You know you are a food blogger when you have an extra cookie (or two) and your boyfriend says “don’t forget to put those on the blog too!” πŸ˜‰

  • Raya March 4, 2010, 12:55 pm

    Or…You know you’re a food blogger when you only buy one set of dishes/silverware/place settings instead of the traditional 4 to 6…

  • Heather (Heather's Dish) March 4, 2010, 12:55 pm

    you know you’re a food blogger when you dream (literally, while you’re sleeping) about what you’re going to write in your next post and start talking in blogger language. or when you talk about your blogger friends that you’ve never met to your spouse and they are completely lost πŸ™‚

    • Morgan March 4, 2010, 2:05 pm

      I don’t have a food blog (anymore), but I talk about the bloggers all the time to the spouse. Drives him crazy.

  • Kelly (Local Foodie Fight) March 4, 2010, 12:58 pm

    You know you’re a food blogger when you can read all the food bloggers’ tweet-convo’s because you are following ALL of them πŸ™‚

  • Astrid March 4, 2010, 12:58 pm

    Thanks for posting the link to the exercise compulsion post. I enjoyed reading it. I love how bright and green that monster is! I also love them, but don’t have them too often.

  • Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg March 4, 2010, 12:59 pm

    Aw…there is a man who does not want to be pictured on a blog, lol πŸ™‚ Can’t say I blame him πŸ™‚

    • Caitlin March 4, 2010, 1:00 pm

      husband is picture shy AND neither one of us has showered. hehe he has bed hair.

  • Carolyn March 4, 2010, 1:00 pm

    I’m definitely going to have to try egg pizza. I have leftover pizza dough from last night’s Buffalo Chicken Pizza success. Hmmm…

  • Shellybean March 4, 2010, 1:00 pm

    You know you’re a food blogger when your significant other stops you from diving into your delicious dinner, hands you the camera and says “You know you’re gonna want to blog about this.”

  • Freya @ Brit Chick Runs March 4, 2010, 1:02 pm

    You know you’re a food blogger when you take 20 photos of the same plate of food from 10 different angles, to get that ‘perfect shot’ – then use just one!

  • Estela @ Weekly Bite March 4, 2010, 1:02 pm

    Ditto to what all the previous commenter’s said!!

    Love the egg pizza idea!

  • Teacherwoman March 4, 2010, 1:03 pm

    The pizza sounds wonderful… and I have yet to try a GM… this weekend, I will do it

  • Anna March 4, 2010, 1:05 pm

    you know you’re a food blogger when… you know the intimate details of the lives of people you’ve never met before.

    • Anna March 4, 2010, 1:07 pm

      Although I suppose this isn’t food-specific, but I think food blogges put more of their personal lives into their posts than just about any other blogger. Just goes to show how ingrained food really is into our daily existence.

      • Theodora March 4, 2010, 9:32 pm

        so true!!

    • Caitlin March 4, 2010, 1:10 pm

      i agree πŸ˜‰

  • Sarah @ THE FOODIE DIARIES March 4, 2010, 1:05 pm

    haha im dying at all these comments. oh, and at the egg pizza. that’s pretty brilliant. i weirdly dont like pasta sauce but i imagine hummus would work wonderfully mmmmm

  • Kelly March 4, 2010, 1:06 pm

    You know you’re a food blogger when you tell your boyfriend lunch/dinner is ready 20 minutes after it actually is so you have enough time to get a good picture before he destroys it.

    • kate March 4, 2010, 6:46 pm

      amen!

  • Meredith March 4, 2010, 1:12 pm

    You know you’re a food blogger when your fiance runs out to the car after ordering because he notices you forgot to bring your camera in the restaurant. He’s a keeper πŸ™‚

  • Shannon (The Daily Balance) March 4, 2010, 1:17 pm

    oooo yum!

    my fave way to make egg pizza: top crust with olive oil and turkey bacon — cook about 10 minutes (until crust is SLIGHTLY brown) – then crack an eggs on top and let cook until egg is cooked to desired done-ness.

    looooveee the runny yolk with the bacon – so tasty!

  • brandi March 4, 2010, 1:18 pm

    i love egg pizzas! try it for breakfast sometime πŸ™‚

    …when you pick meals to make specifically because of the colors, how they’ll photograph.

    …you take pictures of your food on your bathroom counter when you have no natural light.

    …almost every picture you have stored on your computer is of food: not family, friends, pets, etc. Just food.

  • jen trinque March 4, 2010, 1:19 pm

    Mmmmm second time this week I’ve seen pizzas with eggs on them…must try soon. I do some blogging on food, but I’d say in general you know you’re a (food) blogger when you’re already planning your next (meal for the next) post.

  • Jenny March 4, 2010, 1:20 pm

    You know you’re a food blogger when your first thought when seeing a celebrity at a restaurant is not, “HOLY COW- I want an autograph!” but “I wonder what he’s eating! I want a picture! “

  • Andrea of Care to Eat March 4, 2010, 1:24 pm

    ….when you yell at your husband to get out of your shot. I did that last night and he responded, “bad food blogger!”

    • kate March 4, 2010, 6:47 pm

      haha! my boyfriend will pick up a sandwich i just made and plated and threaten to take bites of it! i cant have biten food on my blog!!

  • katherine March 4, 2010, 1:26 pm

    You know you’re a food blogger when you legitimately believe it’s normal to add 15 different toppings to your morning oatmeal, or to add spinach to your smoothie and you don’t understand why no one else in your life agrees!

    • liane March 4, 2010, 4:41 pm

      Ok, I’m not a food blogger, but I can’t understand why no one else in my life puts spinach in their smoothies, or for that matter, even understands what a “green monster” is.
      πŸ˜‰

  • Tracey @ TropicalHappiness March 4, 2010, 1:26 pm

    These comments are toooooo funny. *Not a food blogger* but I actually laughed out loud when I thought of you standing on your chair to take a picture of your lunch. It makes perfect sense… the thought of it just made me giggle!

  • Ashley March 4, 2010, 1:29 pm

    You know you’re a food blogger when…

    …Your favorite gifts are mismatched plates + bowls + mugs
    …You feel like a body part is missing when you forget your camera
    …Your family really starts wondering if you’re in some GREENS loving cult

    <3 BEST game evaaaar <3

  • Graze With Me March 4, 2010, 1:34 pm

    You know you’re a food blogger when…

    …you mentally rehearse your future posts in your head – then take notes down because you don’t want to forget any of it.

    …you have to reheat your meal before eating because you took too long taking a photo.

    …you arrange the food on everyone else’s plates so they look more appealing.

  • Ashley March 4, 2010, 1:35 pm

    when…you apologize to the blog world for bad lighting and blurry photos

  • Andrea @ Run, Eat, Date, Sleep March 4, 2010, 1:37 pm

    Hilarious twitter post!

    Are those your new placements from Crate and Barrel? Love them!

    • Caitlin March 4, 2010, 1:39 pm

      yes! arent they pretty? love them.

  • Katie @ Health for the Whole Self March 4, 2010, 1:38 pm

    You know you’re a food blogger when…

    …your idea of a perfect afternoon is shopping for new dishes!

  • Shellybean March 4, 2010, 1:39 pm

    You know you’re a food blogger when your fiance’s latest tweet is “Mmm, turkey & chedda & fresh sliced Louisiana strawberries toasted on a sandwich thin. Hah! @shellybean isn’t the only one with weird food.”

  • megan March 4, 2010, 1:51 pm

    when your white tablecloth “background” stays on the tiny table by the window (natural light) instead of the big table where you eat.

  • Ambre March 4, 2010, 1:55 pm

    How much was the 2.5lb bag of spinach from Costco, if you don’t mind me asking? I was going to get some Spinach from Sam’s last night, but it didn’t happen.. πŸ™‚

    http://www.the3day.org/goto/ambre701

    • Caitlin March 4, 2010, 1:56 pm

      $8!

      • Ambre March 4, 2010, 2:02 pm

        WOW!!! That’s amazing! I need to get to Sams or Costco PRONTO! πŸ˜‰ LOL I bought a 6oz bag from Target last night for $2.99 and it’s pretty much almost gone after salad for dinner and a GM smoothie. πŸ™ Goes by too quickly!!! Is it lasting a long time?

        • Caitlin March 4, 2010, 2:04 pm

          we got it on sunday and its not soggy yet!

        • Jolene (www.everydayfoodie.ca) March 4, 2010, 11:45 pm

          At the Costco in Regina it is only $2.99 πŸ™‚

  • Heather @ Side of Sneakers March 4, 2010, 1:57 pm

    Oh my gosh I love these. I could have listed all of them. Except my bathroom has worse light than the kitchen (is it sad I know that?). You know you’re a food blogger when you take pictures of your food before heating it up so the steam doesn’t fog the camera lens. πŸ™‚

  • Carrie H March 4, 2010, 1:58 pm

    how about … you know you’re a food blog *stalker* when you say to your husband, “My friend in Florida just ran a marathon!” and he says, “You don’t know anyone in Florida.” … does that count? πŸ˜‰

    • Lizz (leadingthegoodlife) March 4, 2010, 4:45 pm

      I’ve started way too many conversations with, “You know those blog girls I always talk about?…”

      • kate March 4, 2010, 6:48 pm

        haha that cracks me up! my boyfriend and i drove to florida from iowa and i was constantly like oh fitnessista live in valdosta, heab lives in nashville, jenna grew up in vero beach – he thinks im a creep πŸ™

  • Steph March 4, 2010, 1:59 pm

    Hi Caitlin!

    I’m a lurker who never comments. Your abundance of green monsters lately has me craving one. (Or maybe it’s the fact that I’m 33 weeks pregnant?)
    Anyways, I’m wondering what you use to make them. Just a regular blender? If so, don’t you find it a hassle to wash after every use? I want to start drinking them, but maybe I’m just too lazy to wash my blender. =/

    • Caitlin March 4, 2010, 2:06 pm

      i use a regular blender and just rinse it out everytime. i dont bust out the soap everytime.

      congrats on being pregnant!

  • Joanna March 4, 2010, 2:03 pm

    First of all, I LOVE reading your blog! It’s incredibly motivating. I’ve just start blogging more frequently over at http://www.steamedbroccoli.blogspot.com. I’m training for a half marathon and am wondering what you eat the night before your long runs or races? I have a 12 mile run planned for Saturday morning and I know I need carbs but I’d love some suggestions!

    • Caitlin March 4, 2010, 2:07 pm

      i would just eat something stabalizing that i know will sit in my stomach and that i won’t have trouble pooping out πŸ™‚ and something NOT spicy.

      thank you for reading πŸ™‚ and gl with your half!

  • Joanie @ Lovinglife29.blogspot.com March 4, 2010, 2:06 pm

    You know you’re a food blogger when you have dreams that you meet the bloggers you read every day!!

  • Heather (The Single Dish) March 4, 2010, 2:10 pm

    You know you are a food blogger when you certain dishes, place mats and silverware for the blog- and no one else is allowed to use it!

  • Janna (Just Flourishing) March 4, 2010, 2:16 pm

    You know you’re a food blogger when…

    …You have 5 different kinds of nut butter

    … The majority of emails you get from friends/family are recipes/ideas for the blog

    … Your boyfriend acts like he doesn’t know you when you take 1000 pictures of your food/his food in public

    I really liked “You arrange the food on everyone else’s plates so they look more appealing.” ha!

  • brookem March 4, 2010, 2:19 pm

    hello! i just found your blog through google reader as a “suggested site” i should check out! and im so glad i did! i have a regular ole blog and a running blog, and im psyched to have found your site. im from boston and love chatting with other people across the country who are also into healthy living and everything that comes with it! (even those martinis with the girls on a random tuesday night, or a bottle of wine while cooking with your boyfriend on a friday.)

    glad i found your blog!

  • Julie @SavvyEats March 4, 2010, 2:28 pm

    You know you are a food blogger when… you keep the ‘prettiest’ plate of food for yourself because it will photograph better.

  • Meg @ Be Fit Be Full March 4, 2010, 2:30 pm

    You know you’re a food blogge when your husband always says “why doesn’t my plate look as nice as yours goes?!?”

  • Karen W March 4, 2010, 2:32 pm

    You know you are a food blogger when the temperature of the food when you eat it is not nearly as important as getting the best possible photo of it. That pizza does look great! I loved that you hubby did the cupping thing. You have your own personal doctor. Very cool! I have been swimming since I was little and shoulder issues are kind of part of it. It may be you just are using it much more than you are used to normally. It helps that you are trying to learn good form as that can lead to more serious injuries (even though you wouldn’t think swimming could possibly hurt you).

  • Meg @ Be Fit Be Full March 4, 2010, 2:32 pm

    Ok – let me try that again – too many spelling errors because I was rushing! oops..

    You know you’re a food blogger when your husband always says β€œwhy doesn’t my plate look as nice as yours does?!?”

  • Laura@FindingAHealthyBalance....after a 100+ Pound weight loss!!! March 4, 2010, 2:37 pm

    AMAZING LOOKING PIZZA! I never would of thought of “egg pizza” before! =O

    You know you’re a food blogger when you receive strange looks from others in restaurants as you are taking a photo of your meal!

  • Joanne March 4, 2010, 2:39 pm

    Egg pizza sounds delish.

    Is that standing on a chair at home or in a restaurant? πŸ™‚

  • Erin @ Cooking and the City March 4, 2010, 2:55 pm

    Wow! I’ve eaten a breakfast pizza in restaurants before but never thought to make it on my own – looks sooo good.

    Anyway, I think you know when you’re a food blogger when you eat most of your meals lukewarm/cold because you were taking pictures of it while it was still hot. πŸ™‚

    A green monster question – I have never had one but after hearing all of the benefits (glowing skin!), I think I need to start incorporating them into my diet – is there any specific ingredient list? Or does it just have to contain spinach?

  • Penny March 4, 2010, 2:57 pm

    Egg pizza!! Love that. Must try it soon.

    You know you’re a food blooger when you become obsessed with buying cute bowls, silverware, plates, etc.

    You know you’re a food blogger when you have acquired an insane amount of cute bowls, silverware, plates, etc.

    Love your new placemats πŸ™‚ I am also enjoying the “you know you’re a food blogger when… ” Those are hilarious even to a non blogger.

  • Matt March 4, 2010, 4:03 pm

    Looks DELICIOUS.

    I don’t think I am food blogger πŸ™

  • katerina March 4, 2010, 4:10 pm

    … you pack a tripod for a weekend away, and only use it to photograph food.

  • Corinne March 4, 2010, 4:13 pm

    Random Green Monster Question…how do you keep your spinach fresh when you buy in bulk? My bag says to use within 2 days.

    • Caitlin March 4, 2010, 4:21 pm

      i think the key is putting a paper towel on the bottom and rotating the mix everyday – otherwise the spinach packed at the bottom gets squishy.

  • Lisa (bakebikeblog) March 4, 2010, 4:22 pm

    ooooh that egg pizza looks great! What a wonerful lunch indeed πŸ™‚

  • Nicole, RD March 4, 2010, 4:40 pm

    You know you’re a food blogger when you let your food get cold because it takes you forever to get the perfect picture!

  • Susan March 4, 2010, 4:45 pm

    I tweeted this back to you today but…

    You know you’re a food blogger when you refuse to eat in at dimly lit restaurants.

    You know you’re a food blogger when you have to have to regularly scrub bits of food off your camera.

  • Diana @ frontyardfoodie March 4, 2010, 4:50 pm

    You know you’re a food blogger when you’re late to work because you couldn’t get the right light to photo your breakfast.

  • liane March 4, 2010, 4:51 pm

    I have a blog, but I’m not a food blogger, however, I read most of these posts and nodded along. clearly, I’ve been missing my true calling by not taking food pictures!

    I do however have 6 different kinds of nut butters, 4 different types of almond milk, a bulk bag of chia seeds and 2 costco sized bags of spinach in my cupboards/fridge. Does that make me a food blogger wannabe or stalker? πŸ˜‰

    • Caitlin March 4, 2010, 4:53 pm

      that makes you awesome!

  • Melissa (It's a Veggieful Life) March 4, 2010, 4:54 pm

    You know you’re a food blogger when you make something look pretty on your plate JUST so you can get a good picture, not because you’re trying to impress your significant other. (BTW, those egg pizzas look yummy.)

  • Allison K March 4, 2010, 5:05 pm

    I’m not a food blogger…cause it stresses me out, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE your placemat!

  • Nicci March 4, 2010, 5:12 pm

    You know your a food blogger…when you panick that you’ve left your camera at home, and your out to eat. You were charging it before you left the house.

  • Ellen Collis March 4, 2010, 5:14 pm

    S’up, hub! hehe πŸ™‚ Eggs and pizza are two of my fave foods, but I have never thought of putting them together! I’m doing it!

  • Erin (Travel, Eat, Repeat) March 4, 2010, 5:43 pm

    You know you’re a food blogger when you meet new people at a meal and awkwardly whip out your camera a few minutes later to photograph the appetizer. πŸ˜‰

  • Erin March 4, 2010, 5:52 pm

    I made the egg pizza today, it was so good! I used 2 egg whites, spinach, marinara sauce w/ artichokes, 1/2 link grilled turkey sausage, and goat cheese. perfect fuel after a 9 mile run πŸ™‚ thanks for the idea!

  • Jenn @ Livewellfit March 4, 2010, 5:53 pm

    Egg pizza YUMMINESS! πŸ™‚

    Yesterday was a day that went down in the books for me: I inhaled an entire 1lb bag of spinach over the course of 2 green monsters. Yeah…I might have a problem. πŸ™‚

  • heather March 4, 2010, 6:32 pm

    I go through those Costco bags of spinach in two days. Yes, 2.5 pounds in two days. Nuts!

  • Mara @ What's For Dinner? March 4, 2010, 6:45 pm

    Ha, when your husband calls your blog friends the “boogers” or “blΓΌgers” and when I say I’m going out with them, I have to say EatingBender Jenn or Banana Caroline…

  • kate March 4, 2010, 6:52 pm

    you know youre a food blogger when you drive miles/hours out of the way to stop at a trader joes or a whole foods

  • Laura @ Backstage Pass to Health & Happiness March 4, 2010, 7:19 pm

    You know you’re a food blogger when your boss starts asking you “NOW which company sent you a product to review?”
    I’ve gotten packages pretty frequently lately, and have to have them delivered to work! I don’t think everyone else minds because I usually share… πŸ™‚

  • susan (stepping off the coaster) March 4, 2010, 7:31 pm

    i looooove making breakfast pizza! flat outs work well for crust too b/c they get really crispy.

    i’m trying a recipe tonight i found for egg/spinach/asparagus pizza, only it says you pour the egg over the top, rather than cooking it ahead of time like i usually do… i think it’s gonna be TASTYYYY

  • susan (stepping off the coaster) March 4, 2010, 7:34 pm

    OH, and you know you’re a food blogger when someone reaches for the food on the table and your partner puts the block on them and says, NOT UNTIL SHE TAKES A PICTURE

  • manda March 4, 2010, 8:10 pm

    cute place mats!!! is the juicer raffle open to canadians???

    • Caitlin March 4, 2010, 8:17 pm

      i will ask!

  • Mae @ OhhMay March 4, 2010, 8:44 pm

    Hahaha This is so awesome! I just read all the comments- too funny!
    You know you’re a food blogger when you can live without flash on you $700 camera for 3 months because 1. you can’t give up your camera for even a day, and 2. you never use flash anyway!

    You know you’re a food blogger when out of your family, you have the only white plate.

    πŸ˜€

  • Samantha March 4, 2010, 8:59 pm

    haha love your husbands hello! Precious!

  • Hangry Pants March 4, 2010, 10:40 pm

    … when a little girl turns to her mommy in the supermarket and says, “Mommy, why is that lady taking pictures of the bread?”

  • LindsayRuns March 4, 2010, 10:52 pm

    You know you’re a food blogger when your husband goes through your photo archives on the computer looking for a picture of the dog and finds hundreds of smoothies, dinners, and bowls of oatmeal saved by date. Apparently, I’m weird πŸ˜‰

  • Jolene (www.everydayfoodie.ca) March 4, 2010, 11:48 pm

    You know you are a food blogger when you are planning a trip to New York for the first time and the first thing you look up is where the trader joes and whole foods stores are located because you have never been and seriously NEED to go. Tonight my hubby asked if the only reason we are going to New York is for nut butter. I said no. I lied.

    Hehe.

    • Caitlin March 5, 2010, 8:29 am

      hahah this comment cracked me up.

    • Laura March 5, 2010, 2:13 pm

      Urrr, how about having to restrain yourself hard from begging your sister, who is going on an busy work trip to NY from the U.K. to buy an extra bag and go shopping in Whole Foods/Trader Joes for all the things I see on blogs and simply. cannot. find. in. Blighty. And pay extra baggage allowance. Caitlin, is the Husband looking forward to the World Cup? Rooooney!

      • Caitlin March 5, 2010, 2:16 pm

        we are both really excited!

  • Sami March 5, 2010, 8:59 am

    …when you go out to dinner and get more upset that you locked your camera in your car than the fact that you locked your keys in your car.

    …when one of your greatest aspirations is to someday live near a Trader Joe’s or a Whole Foods.

    …when you call canned pumpkin a comfort food.

    …when you could get lost in a grocery store for hours.

    Happy Friday, Cait! πŸ™‚
