Is it the weekend yet? No, seriously. Is it?




My appetite confuses me sometimes.  I stuffed my face last night and woke up with a grumbling tummy.  My hearty bowl of oatmeal didn’t hold me over AT ALL, and my mid-morning snack didn’t even faze me.


I had a pear:


I was SO hungry for lunch that I ate at 11:30!  I made a North of Border Quesadilla.


Ingredients (for 1):


  • 1 large burrito
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese (like Cabot’s)
  • 1/2 cup alfalfa sprouts
  • 1/3 block tofu
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasonings
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • pepper to taste




  • Cut tofu into small silvers, place between two paper towels and press the water out for approximately 30 minutes.
  • Mix taco seasonings and water and coat tofu in marinade.  Let stand 15 minutes.
  • Bake tofu at 390 degrees for 30 minutes, flipping once.
  • Heat griddle and place burrito in the center.
  • Add cheese, sprouts, and baked tofu to one side and fold over the other side to create a quesadilla.  Add pepper.
  • Cook on Medium High until burrito crisps and cheese melts.
  • Cut into thirds and enjoy!


          So delish!


          Date Night


          Future Husband and I need some quality time together. 🙂 We’re going to my favorite restaurant in Orlando, Seasons 52, for dinner.  I made the reservation this AM as a surprise.  He’s never been, but I hope he likes it as much as I do!


          Our reservation isn’t until 10 PM (Future Husband is working late), so I’ve got to space my snacks and post-run fuel accordingly. 


          See you waaaay later tonight for a run report and some lovely dinner pictures!

            I have never been to Seasons 52! I hear it’s amazing though, and I’m sure FH will like it as much as you. Enjoy date night, they’re the best! Do you guys have date night rules, like no wedding talk, no work talk?

          • therunningaddict November 21, 2008, 11:02 am

            Oh the weekend has already started here, EU time!!
            Have fun during your date 🙂

          • Caitlin (see bride run) November 21, 2008, 11:07 am

            mrs lc – our only rule is no bickering 😉

          • November 21, 2008, 11:08 am

            Have a great time tonight! We ate at Seasons 52 a couple of years ago when we were in ORL. The food is amazing! I know why it’s your fav!!

          • Kristen November 21, 2008, 11:09 am

            Wish it was the weekend. The North of Border Quesadilla sounds great.
            A 10pm dinner…I will be asleep 2 hours by then 🙂 I couldn’t imagine eatting that late. Have a great time

          • tfh November 21, 2008, 11:11 am

            Have fun tonight! The restaurant looks great.

          • Adrienne November 21, 2008, 11:13 am

            Hey Caitlin,

            Your lunch looks tasty! But… I’m not sure I get the “north of the border” reference!! 🙂

          • jenngirl November 21, 2008, 11:14 am

            When I go to bed full, and wake up hungry, I imagine that my metabolism just went into overdrive in my sleep due to having lots of calories to work with…haha maybe?

            fun evening planned! I’m so jealous of that Seasons 52 restaurant you speak of, I’m determined to go. ONE DAY.

          • Meghann November 21, 2008, 11:18 am

            Have fun at Seasons 52 tonight!

            I woke up starving too! I blame the wine.

          • Caitlin (see bride run) November 21, 2008, 11:23 am

            adrienne – LOL well its not really a spanish quesadilla, with the tofu and the cheddar and the sprouts, so i thought it was a little “north of the border”!

          • fodie818 November 21, 2008, 12:11 pm

            hi caitlin!
            delicious lunch! i’m curious… my fiance and i sometimes have later dinners too because of work, school, etc. and i never really know how to adjust my eating. i find that if i don’t eat dinner, by 8 pm i am starving!! i know i can eat snacks, but i doubt that would hold me til so late (especially 10!) do you compensate with more snacks and then a smaller dinner, or what is your plan of attack?

          • Caitlin (see bride run) November 21, 2008, 12:16 pm

            fodie – i just try to space out my snacks a little longer. instead of eating every 2 hours, i’ll try to go 3. also, i try to fit in a long run because that will allow me to eat the “extra” calories i know i’ll need to last me to a late dinner. last, i won’t have the dessert or wine i normally would with a dinner out, because i probably will have to eat a 250 calorie snack around 7 or 8 anyways to hold me through.

          • Oh She Glows November 21, 2008, 12:37 pm

            Your lunch looks so yummy as always.

            Where do you think up all of your meal ideas? they are always so varied and different- very impressive!

            The hunger could be from the alcohol. I know on days after I’ve had a little much to drink I seem to have the munchies all day (not that you drank a lot last night, but since you said earlier you had a hangover before bed it made me think about this). Someone actually left me an article about it once but I can’t find it right now… it was something about the alcohol effecting your glucose levels and (obviously) liver function, which also explains those “drunk munchies” people get. 🙂

            If I can find the article I’ll pass it along!

            Ooooo that quesadilla looks so good! Have a blast on your date night! 😀

          • Mica November 21, 2008, 1:44 pm

            That is one tasty-looking quesadilla. Mmmmmm, I’m sitting here drooling on the library computers.

            Have a great date night! It’s almost the weekend!

          • seeleelive (for the love of peanut butter) November 21, 2008, 1:53 pm

            have an awesome time tonight, Caitlin! Sounds like a special night!

          • magpie November 21, 2008, 3:37 pm

            Awesome quesadilla! I haven’t had one of those in a long time and I definitely should bring one for lunch soon 😀

            Have a great time tonight!

          • carolinebee November 21, 2008, 5:34 pm

            Good tips for lasting until a late dinner! I have a crazy work schedule and sometimes have trouble spacing out snacks so I can make until dinnertime without calorie overload!
