Return of the Noodle Bowl

Would you believe I didn’t have pasta for lunch at all last week? What is this!? How could I neglect my beloved noodle bowls?

Well, I showed my favorite Carba Nada pasta some love again today.

Carba Nada Pasta

My noodle bowl returned in full force and included:

  • Carba Nada egg fettuccine pasta
  • Broccoli
  • Cauliflower
  • Portobello mushrooms
  • Tomato basil marinara sauce
  • Parmesan cheese

Parmesan Cheese Pleeeease

Tuesday's Lunch

Is it weird that I love marinara sauce cold, straight from the jar?

I also like Parmesan cheese shaken right outta the container into my mouth. The same goes for whipped cream squirted into my mouth right from the can. πŸ˜‰

Birthday Wish List

My family has been asking me what I want for my birthday at the end of the month.

I gave my sister some ideas yesterday and some of the items on my list made me feel like the lamest person on the planet:

  1. Glass Tupperware (because I don’t want to get cancer from reheating my plastic Tupperware)
  2. New cute tumbler for hot drinks
  3. Massage
  4. New running shoes
  5. Garmin Forerunner (Why is the Garmin 305 so hideous? To make you cough up $300 for the Garmin 405? Ugh.)

What’s the lamest thing you’ve ever asked for?

For me, it’s gotta be the Tupperware (above) or socks.

  1. Napkins and placemats were on my list this year πŸ˜‰ So exciting!

  2. new running sneakers were on my list…

    I just got the garmin FR60! it’s amazing! i love it…I can’t seem to workout without it now!

    I had carba nada noodles last night for dinner with eggplant and instead of parm. cheese i mixed in whipped cottage cheese with muir glen’s organic sauce! yum!!

  3. I asked for measuring cups and other cooking utensils for christmas… Luckily my mama got me some really cute ones!

  4. I actually just asked for the Garmin, too! The 305 (as ugly as it is) is on sale at amazon right now for $150! Free shipping too πŸ™‚

  5. I asked the hubs for a food scale and body fat scale for my bday this year. I also asked for a HR monitor from my parents, that wasn’t lame though – it totally rocks.

    p.s. food scale – totally worth it, body fat scale – not at all!

  6. Pajamas or a cake caddy is pretty lame…yet I love both of em’ πŸ™‚

  7. Where do you find those noodles? I clinked on your link, but it was just a site about the noodles- not where I can buy them…I’m guessing whole foods??

    And OMG- you can get cancer for re-heating plastic tupperware bowls? YIKES!

  8. Honestly, I prefer the Garmin 305 to my 405! My partner has the 305 and I have the 405 and find the bezel sooooooooooooo annoying sometimes! I literally get frustrated when I try to tap it to get it to switch screens and nothing happens. I’m sure there’s a way to fix this in the settings (maybe to a lighter tap?) but I am too technologically slow to figure it out.

  9. I would have to say that none of those requests are lame… I’ve asked for way worse. I surely hope someone gets you that Garmin. You’ll love it!

  10. I got the 405 for my birthday, but sadly the price tag meant that I didn’t get to ask for lame things such as Tupperware (which I’ve needed forever too, actually) and a blender. I’m also big into asking for books, which my brother has always made fun of me for!!

  11. Hehe, I asked for a food scale for Christmas! πŸ˜‰ LAME!!

  12. My dad got my mom a massage for her birthday and she LOVED it. I’m oh-so-jealous.
    I’ve asked for money to help with textbooks before…SO lame!

  13. Okay Keith would DIE if he knew I was publically announcing this but one year for Christmas he actually got me some A&M (that was the college I went to) house slippers! SERIOUSLY! That was the lamest gift I ever got…thankfully he snuck in some pearl earrings to make up for it! πŸ™‚ hehe…I am such a brat!

  14. That sounds like a pretty sweet list to me!

    For Christmas one year, I asked for the Oxford English Dictionary…NERD ALERT!!!

  15. I remember once when I was little I asked for new towels–apparently I thought the towels we had werent big and fluffy enough πŸ™‚

    my mom was more than happy to get me towels haha

  16. I asked my mom to get me a handheld cleaner that I could use on my stairs. So lame!

  17. I’m pretty sure I asked for a griddle for my bday. A GRIDDLE. That’s worse than Tupperware.

  18. the garmin 405cx is on my bday/graduation list too πŸ™‚

    and i totally LOVE marinara sauce cold too. i usually have a spoonful before it makes it onto my plate πŸ™‚

    i do the little snip snip on the ends too. i love my hair long so i dont really get a major cut that often. i go about every 6 weeks or so.

  19. Ahh that meal looks so delicious. But oh, wanting to drink marinara straight up is not weird at all–i’m the same way with pasta sauce…and salsa πŸ™‚

  20. I just received my first package(s) of carba nada pasta last week, right before I took off for vacation! All thanks to you, Julie! So many of my meals each week are so similar to yours, I ordered 4 bags. I figured if I love to eat everything else that you do, I’m sure to love carba nada, too!
    P.S. I do the same thing with marinara, too! haha

  21. Lamest gift? STICKERS! When I was eight, I was obsessed with them and told my parents, aunts, uncles, friends, brother etc that I didn’t want anything else for Christmas. Well, Christmas morning came and every single present I opened contained sheets and sheets of stickers. It was complete sticker overload and my obsession ended soon after. πŸ™‚

  22. girl you DO NOT want that Garmin 405…first off i worked full time at a specialty running store and still pinch hit from time to time, but have many runner friends who bought it….and then returned it.

    they SUCK.

  23. You should ask for a CONTIGO coffee thermos for your birthday! They’re so awesome – I can literally throw it in my purse and it won’t spill a drop. The lamest thing I have asked for was this past Christmas actually – fit ‘n’ fresh salad pods to make taking salads to work easier. Lame sauce!

  24. food! storage containers, more food- like salsa, tuna, and Amazing Grass Superfood, Holy Basil Tea etc. Supplements. Also a grocery gift card and gum! lol. too funny
    Happy early BIRTHDAY! I can’t wait to see the pictures. I have such admiration and respect for your family!
    Barbara
