“Ginger cats?!?!”




Now the bucket is gone.  Sorry, puppies.  No more Ginger Cats for you or me.


This afternoon involved lots of working and a little walking with Nicole.

She was wearing Vibrams (barefoot running non-shoes).  So cool!


Pre-walk little snack:


And dinner:

That’s leftover tofu and rice from last night’s Thai + roasted broccoli and potatoes with BBQ sauce.


Snacking on some chocolate and watching loads of trashy TV.  Tear us awayyyy!

    I love trashy tv, there is no shame in that! 🙂

    My husband wears Vibrams every day and he loves them! I haven’t jumped on that bandwagon yet.

  • Whitney September 23, 2010, 8:40 pm

    haha I’m doing the same thing…except with popcorn instead of chocolate! Poor doggies…no more ginger cats 🙁

  • Katherine @ Left Coast Contessa September 23, 2010, 8:41 pm

    three cheers for trashy tv! What are you watching? Tonight I’m watching Grey’s Anatomy and Jersey Shore.

    • Caitlin September 23, 2010, 8:42 pm

      Gossip Girl and Greys!

  • Janelle September 23, 2010, 8:44 pm

    I made your baked tofu recipe tonight (and roasted broccoli, and rice – our plates looked amazingly the same) and while the flavor was spot on, the tofu was still…mushy. Yours looks like it has a more firm texture – suggestions?
    Enjoy trashy TV!

  • Chelsea at Striking Balance September 23, 2010, 8:46 pm

    Yay for Grey’s Anatomy being back tonight 🙂 Enjoy!

  • Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) September 23, 2010, 8:46 pm

    Oh no…no more ginger cats! Dinner looks delicious! Enjoy your evening!

  • Maria @ Oh Healthy Day September 23, 2010, 8:47 pm

    How could you possibly say no to those cute puppy eyes? I heart Maggie and James.
    The new The Office is on tonight, so I’ll be glued to the TV as well.

  • Nicole September 23, 2010, 8:48 pm

    No mention of the Pitt/Miami game? I’m watching it now and thought of you!

    • Caitlin September 23, 2010, 8:52 pm

      I am watching that as well! Go Miami!

  • Lauren September 23, 2010, 8:49 pm

    Haha, I must get the cats next time. I’m still working on my tub of alphabet cookies. Try those next!! 🙂

  • ashleigh September 23, 2010, 8:53 pm

    Hahah I think thats hilarious the dogs like ginger cats too. My friend bought me the TJ’s chocolate cats and I ate those in like 3 days.. they were so good!

  • Erin September 23, 2010, 8:54 pm

    I love ginger cats — they have just the right amount of spice, especially with a cuppa tea. Yum! 😀

  • Cynthia (It All Changes) September 23, 2010, 8:54 pm

    Awww sweet puppies who love to eat kitties 🙂

  • Chelsea @ Strawberry Sweat September 23, 2010, 8:56 pm

    I’m all for trashy tv! I am currently watching last season’s Grey’s Anatomy, and I can’t tear myself away 🙂

  • Michelle (The Runner's Plate) September 23, 2010, 8:56 pm

    I need to get my hands on some of these Ginger Cats! They sound right up my alley–sweet and crunchy!

  • eri September 23, 2010, 9:01 pm

    one of these days i’ve really got to try your tofu recipe!

    i’m loving your tweets right now about chuck bass =)

  • yummiee cupcake September 23, 2010, 9:08 pm

    i want your dinner! i had pizza for lunch and dinner! can’t wait to eat veggies tomorrow!

  • Krystina September 23, 2010, 9:14 pm

    I wish ginger cats were vegan!

  • Erin September 23, 2010, 9:17 pm

    tonight is a great night for trashy TV! Between the NBC line-up, Project Runway, and It’s Always Sunny I need to do some crunches between shows with how long i’ll be sitting on the couch 😉

  • maria @ Chasing the Now September 23, 2010, 9:19 pm

    I’m too scared to jump on the Vibram/barefoot running wagon since my foot’s stress fracture. I feel like it probably needs as much cushioning as I can give it.

  • chelsey @ clean eating chelsey September 23, 2010, 9:19 pm

    I am ADDICTED to grey’s anatomy – I cannot tear yself away from TV in the fall. It’s bad.

  • Exercise and Eat September 23, 2010, 9:22 pm

    You are the BBQ sauce queen!

  • Karen @ Not Just Celery September 23, 2010, 9:26 pm

    That picture of Maggie & James is soooooo adorable!

  • Jessica @ The Process of Healing September 23, 2010, 9:29 pm

    Woohoo for Grey’s!!!!!!

  • sarah k. @ the pajama chef September 23, 2010, 9:32 pm

    i really want to try out vibrams! i’m just afraid that once i get them i won’t ever wanna wear “real” running shoes again… sigh…

  • Kelly September 23, 2010, 9:37 pm

    Aww I love James and Maggie pics!

  • Susan@MomSwimBikeRun September 23, 2010, 9:50 pm

    I definitely want to try Vibrams…. can’t remember. Have you tried them or wouldn’t that be good for your knee?

  • Bee Goes Bananas September 23, 2010, 9:51 pm

    I wonder how those shoes work? I’ve never tried them before, but I’d like to!

    The dogs are so adorable!

  • Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat September 23, 2010, 10:18 pm

    I’ve read about the benefits of barefoot running and I think it would be a really cool to try Vibrams. They still look a little weird to me though! Have a great night 🙂

  • Wei-Wei September 23, 2010, 10:20 pm

    I just love that you use barbecue sauce with everything – I could use Korean barbecue sauce with everything. So spicy and delicious.

  • Sarah September 23, 2010, 10:21 pm

    Caitlin! Have you seen this YouTube video? It’s so inspirational!

    “I don’t have to have a model’s body to be a role model.” Love it!!

  • Paige @Running Around Normal September 23, 2010, 10:52 pm

    ahhh I love your dogs. Even if they are ginger cat deprived:( – ha!

  • Sarah for Real September 23, 2010, 11:02 pm

    Your dogs are too cute! I love trashy tv and am watching some myself. I had trouble getting into gossip girl (these are supposed to be high schoolers??? I mean, a few seasons back) but I love the Bravo lineup.

  • Bridget September 23, 2010, 11:18 pm

    I totally had a trash tv night too! Sometimes ya just gotta get your fix ;)Unfortunalety I had no chocolate 🙁 That would’ve made it complete

  • Annie@stronghealthyfit September 23, 2010, 11:23 pm

    Good for you- sometimes choco and trash tv is just what you need 🙂

  • Amber K September 23, 2010, 11:42 pm

    It was totally a trashy TV day today.

  • alli September 24, 2010, 12:09 am

    oh my heck, i love those ginger cats! occassionally i will melt a square of bakers unsweetned chocolate and mix it with agave or almond/peanut butter…or both. then spread it onto the back side of those cats, pop em in the freezer…then pop em in my mouth! i can’t do that too often though, they are too good to say no to!

  • Heather (Heather's Dish) September 24, 2010, 12:28 am

    it’s been too long since i had roasted broccoli…totally started drooling at your dinner plate!

  • Camille September 24, 2010, 12:28 am

    I have been wanting to try Vibrams but can’t quite get myself to splurge on them. Someday!

  • Peggy September 24, 2010, 12:35 am

    No more ginger cats, tragic! Maggie and James are adorable. I’d like to try vibrams for hiking or trail walking, I think, but using them on pavement–or concrete, eek!–scares me. Primitive man may not have had shoes, but he didn’t have sidewalks either…

  • Kim September 24, 2010, 12:44 am

    My husband has run two marathons with his Vibrams (Rome and Athens!) and has done a triathalon in them, as well. He won’t wear anything else.

    I don’t run too much, but I’m still going to get a pair. I try to go barefoot as much as possible now and love it!

  • Maura September 24, 2010, 1:50 am

    I know you didn’t just call Grey’s trashy TV!

  • maricel September 24, 2010, 2:44 am

    Looks like a tasty dinner..and healthy too!

  • Laurie September 24, 2010, 6:48 am

    oh did I watch trashy tv last night… rot the brain much?

  • Vicky @ eat live spin September 24, 2010, 7:07 am

    James’ face in the first picture is priceless, are you holding the cookie to the side of the camera? Looks like he’s staring it down!

    One day I will try a pair of Vibrams on to see how they feel. I can’t wear anything super flexible because my feet are prone to stress fractures. I am still getting used to how they look… some people in NYC are wearing them as everyday walking shoes… looks strange when people have brightly colored feet.

  • whitney September 24, 2010, 8:37 am

    I love those damn ginger cats! They kill me. I can go through a bucket in like 3 days especially when I’m stressed and studying haha.

  • Jen September 24, 2010, 9:02 am

    Hey Caitlin – I recently saw this gadget on a blog and thought you might be interested since you’re a fellow tofu-loving veggie: I just got mine in the mail and can’t wait to try it! Have a great weekend!

  • Brittney September 24, 2010, 11:08 am

    I love that first pic of the dogs! So CUTE!!

  • jassy September 25, 2010, 12:42 pm

    funny dogs! so nice 🙂 this is the first time i’ve seen vibrams…how is that possible…better consult mr. google 🙂

  • Keri September 25, 2010, 9:22 pm

    My husband and I wear Vibrams and love them! He is in the military and runs a lot, and he says he is never going back to regular running shoes. In the past, he suffered from knee and lower back issues which have vanished since running with Vibrams. They take a little getting used to, mostly because your calf muscles BURN (you use those muscles more with barefoot running than with conventional shoes).
