Friday was such a FUN day at work. We all revert to being kids again by dressing up, decorating our offices and hosting contests/prizes for the best dressed and decorated. In the midst of all that, we managed to get some work done and then finish the day with a DESSERT LUCK. The dessert luck is all about making your favorite spookie scary or fun Halloween treat. It totally makes the day fly by and I LOVE it. This year before our dessert luck, a group of my co-workers did a skit
“The Princess and The PASTA Shell”. It was so HILARIOUS!
Ok ~ I guess I should back track a little to the start of my day and work up to the desserts :D I had a breakfast repeat of Almond Butter Apricot Toast with creamy vanilla decaf Organic Fair Trade Coffee. MMMM ~ even the skeleton hand (that MOVES) wanted some of it!
My Co-worker and I were chatting about FOOD ( a topic that seems to ALWAYS appear in my life 🙂 and we both had one word come to mind ~ TACOS!!! So, I traded in my leftover Smokey Black Bean Salsa Chili for this.
Chips & Salsa at TR2 ~ aka Taqueria Rosita 2.
We were chatting along when I looked up to see this FREAKY spider above me. – LOVE the light covers ~ hate the nasty spider.
I ordered two of my FAVORITE Chicken Tacos Mexican style (with cheese, hot sauce, cabbage and AVOCADO!!) I added more salsa too – I LOVE these!
We worked a bit more before the festivities started. Here a few highlights of the baked goods. My co-worker made this NASTY Kitty Litter Cake!
Being the sick person I am, I HAD to try it. I picked up the scooper and their was “POOH!” stuck on it.
But, that didn’t stop me from digging in. I actually got in trouble for scooping the pooh from the middle of the cake versus cutting it – oops!
My curly pooh was melted tootsie roll ~ genius! It’s actually two cakes mixed with pudding and topped with crushed cookies. I had a bite of each out of curiosity. And NO, on any ordinary day I would NOT eat pooh if you asked me too for those wondering :D
My other talented co-worker made this FANTASTIC Pumpkin Cake. I totally think she deserves the best decorated cake award.
It was a Red VELVET cake made orange for Halloween ~ so creative!
Funky bloody eyeballs!
There was a ton of other stuff too but I wasn’t feeling desserts (shocker!). I had one of my Carrot Pumpkin Cupcakes with Whipped Frosting and shared the bites of the other things with 2 of my co-workers.
When I got home, I had a super cool package waiting for me from Kristina! We had agreed to do a goodie swap ~ I sent her TJ’s gooides and she sent me fun stuff from where she lives. She put so much thought into everything and wrote the sweetest letter. There is a bunch of organic stuff and all the bars have great stats too. Thanks girlie – I LOVE it all and can’t wait to dig in.
Oh wait ~ I DID dig into this Gorge Delights Just Fruit Bar. 100% DELICIOUS! Do you all know if they sell these anywhere in California? I MUST find them!
Fantastic stats ~ LOVE that it is just that – FRUIT only, nothing added. It’s a BIG size bar too.
The Husband had to work late so I lounged around and made myself scared by watching My Super Sweet Psycho 16. I told him I wasn’t cooking tonight since I wasn’t hungry and would probably have cereal or a salad. He decided to surprise me by bringing home Mary’s Pizza Shack! I had a small salad with their housemade Italian Dressing.
Then, stole a little salad plates worth of his spaghetti with meatballs. It was awesome!
I am off to the Farmer’s Market, then shopping and errands today. I think we are staying low key tonight (avoiding our friends parties since we are not dressing up 😀 and staying in to watch scary movies and
eat hand out candy and Annie’s Bunny Friends!
