Grooveshark and Soup

in All Posts

Evening!  First things first:  Have you used Grooveshark yet?  It’s the best on-demand FREE music station ever.  Try it! 


While jamming to some Snow Patrol, I heated up leftovers:  


The best way to freeze soup is to put in a big Ziploc bag and freeze it flat.  :)  It’s so space-efficient!  Kath taught me that trick.  🙂


I reheated some homemade Butternut Squash and Carrot Soup (three ingredients:  butternut squash, carrots, and veggie broth, blended).  Delish!


Plus, a shot of wheatgrass.  The secret is to mix it with apple juice (as I did here) or rice milk.  🙂


And an egg behind two Arnold Sandwich Thins.


My dinner was so light because I TOTALLY spoiled my appetite. 


I watched old episodes of The Office this evening and snacked on Stacy’s Chips and salsa (my friend Harry had hummus).   Harry and I killed the entire bag (that’s 8 servings behind the two of us!).  I think running 11.25 miles made me very hangry today!  🙂


And an Oh She Glows bar!  My dad sent me some randomly.. isn’t that nice?  I love the idea of my Dad emailing Angela.  :)  I had the Classic flavor.  Yum!


I’m going to crash so early tonight…. Yawn!

    I love that soup idea. My boyfriend just made a HUGE pot of lentil soup. I’m going to make some baggies right now.

    i had almost the same thing for dinner. i love egg sandwiches and have to have them weekly. that was so sweet of your dad to send you those bars!i could kill a bag of stacy’s chips and i didn’t run 11.25 miles 🙂

  • Jessica @ How Sweet It Is December 2, 2009, 8:48 pm

    Thanks for filling me in on what Grooveshark is. I had no idea!

  • Lindsay December 2, 2009, 8:48 pm

    Oh well, sometimes spoiling your dinner appetite with snacks is fun 🙂 Enjoy your Glo bars!

  • Karla December 2, 2009, 8:50 pm

  • Katie December 2, 2009, 9:12 pm

    I’m a sucker for pita chips. They don’t last fast.

    First giveaway and workout music on my blog!

  • Brittney December 2, 2009, 9:14 pm

    Your soup sounds so good and easy to make.

    And I have to agree that pita chips are addicting. I haven’t had them in ages and I think I may have to consider buying some 🙂

  • candice December 2, 2009, 9:15 pm

    Those pita chips are SO addicting. I need to try one of these famous glo bars, seriously! Your dad was nice to send you such a big case 😀

  • Shannon (The Daily Balance) December 2, 2009, 9:18 pm

    great safe-saving tip with soup!

    Stacy’s Pita Chips are the best! SO addicting!

  • Anne P December 2, 2009, 9:19 pm

    Wow. Can your dad give my dad some tips!?! 😉

  • Joelle (The Pancake Girl) December 2, 2009, 9:23 pm

    Yum, I love pita chips and egg sammies!

  • Ashley December 2, 2009, 9:26 pm

    Thanks! I LOVE Grooveshark! I will definitely use it tons.

  • Jenny December 2, 2009, 9:27 pm

    loove the pita chips — try them in the cinnamon and sugar flavor, it’s an even worse/better addiction

  • Lizzy December 2, 2009, 9:32 pm

    me and stacy’s pita chips are best friends. seriously just after one chip i’m completely addicted! 🙂

  • lauren @ Eater not a runner December 2, 2009, 9:37 pm

    Is it better than Pandora? I might have to check that out!

  • Anne Marie@New Weigh of Life December 2, 2009, 9:39 pm

    Cool trick-I love it!

  • maria December 2, 2009, 9:39 pm

    Just started listening to Grooveshark yesterday. I’m in LOOOVE!

  • Kath December 2, 2009, 9:49 pm

    We share lots of tips 🙂

  • Jessie (Vegan-minded) December 2, 2009, 9:59 pm

    Those Stacy’s bags are rigged! No way there 8 servings in there, it is way to easy to tear through a bag in one sitting! I share your addiction. 🙂

  • Lee December 2, 2009, 10:01 pm

    I think the nutritional facts must be wrong, it has two servings in it at most! Same with the hummus for that matter.

  • Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg December 2, 2009, 10:04 pm

    Awww…that’s awesome that your dad sent you glo bars!

  • Britt (Runnerbelle) December 2, 2009, 10:05 pm

    Ziplock bags rock, I freeze all kinds of stuff in them… soup, mashed potatoes, veggies, etc.

    What a great dad!!

  • Carolyn December 2, 2009, 10:08 pm

    I can’t listed to streaming audio on my computer at work so instead I stream Pandora on my G1. I just have to make sure to keep it plugged in or it will die too quickly.

  • Estela @ Weekly Bite December 2, 2009, 10:14 pm

    Stacy’s pita chips are ADDICTING!!

  • Diana (Mymarblerye) December 2, 2009, 10:20 pm

    your dad sending you globars???? WHAT? can he adopt me?

  • emily December 2, 2009, 10:24 pm

    I haven’t had Stacy’s since I lived in FL but I remember them being very addicting! 🙂

  • Sam (Merit to the Carrot) December 2, 2009, 10:29 pm

    Snow Patrol is one of my favs!
    Your soup looks fantastic, even reheated! Your dad definitely knows what an amazing early Xmas present is…

  • Kristie Lynn December 2, 2009, 10:45 pm

    How sweet of your Dad! Between the Stacey’s chips and Food Should Taste Good chips, I think I’m ready to start a war on portion sizes 😉

  • Debbie December 2, 2009, 10:49 pm

    Just curious why are so many bloggers promoting Grooveshark at the moment?Is it a paid thing?
    Thanks for your time.
    Enjoy your site.

    • Caitlin December 3, 2009, 6:37 am

      no! i would tell you if it was (i always say if its a sample or a freebie). we’re just all obsessed with it. LOL

  • Angela (Oh She Glows) December 2, 2009, 11:10 pm

    omg I was so excited when your DAD emailed me!!!!!! SO sweet of him 🙂

  • Jolene ( December 2, 2009, 11:45 pm

    Your dad is awesome!!! Totally awesome!!!

  • Sammi December 2, 2009, 11:52 pm

    That is awesome that your dad got you glo bars! They taste amazing don’t they? What’s your favorite flavor? Mine has to be present! So fresh tasting!

    must get off your blog now before the pictures make me go downstairs to grab a snack right before bed.

    • Caitlin December 3, 2009, 6:37 am

      i havent tried present yet but i really like revive.

      • Sammi December 3, 2009, 8:07 am

        revive is really good as well 🙂 probably my second favorite. I’m sure you’ll LOVE present though!

  • MelissaNibbles December 3, 2009, 4:51 am

    I respectfully disagree. Hip Hop Throwbacks is the best OnDemand music channel. Where else are you going to hear “I Wanna Sex You Up”, “I Wanna B Rich”, and “Aint 2 Proud 2 Beg”?

  • Stacey December 3, 2009, 6:23 am

    I love the arnold sandwich thins! They are so light and I don’t fill up on the bread part of my sandwich 🙂 Glad you had a good day!

  • Paige @ Running Around Normal December 3, 2009, 6:44 am

    I’d never even heard of Grooveshark. Thanks for the introduction 😉 How awesome is your dad for sending you Glo Bars!?

  • Sarah @ See Sarah Eat December 3, 2009, 9:34 am

    Aww, your dad is awesome! I’m going to have to check out Grooveshark, is it better than Pandora?

  • Lindsay December 3, 2009, 10:08 am

    wheatgrass in chocolate silk is my favorite way to do the shot!

  • alli December 3, 2009, 10:45 am

    i havent heard of grooveshark. i use
    i do the same thing with my soup and tomato puree i use to add to soup later. a trick i learned from my MIL is to make a lot of rice, (like the whole bag) let it cool, and freeze in ziplocs. it’s so convient and quick when you dont have 40 minutes to make rice!

  • Amanda December 3, 2009, 11:59 am

    This might be total TMI, but when I was breastfeeding my son I would freeze my milk like that and organize it by date. Its so space efficient and convienent.

  • Jenna December 3, 2009, 1:44 pm

    awww that was SO nice of your dad!
