Two Yolks?

Good evening! Sorry for my disappearance, I've been enjoying my weekend so far. Anywho, let me start off with my weird/awesome observation yesterday morning:

Two yolks in one egg! Have you ever seen this happen before? Ralph said he has, and he also says it means that the chicken who laid the egg must have been very healthy since the egg laying process is so energy intensive. Awesome!
Another smiley face? A smiley face with sunglasses.

After bfast, I went for another swim. I really didn't want to go for some reason, but I pushed myself and it was good. But it left me hungry again:
 I made myself wait until noon to eat my guacamole sandwich though:
 And was still hungry around 2 so I had a kind bar:
It was actually really good. I liked how it was soft and gooey!
Matzo with buttah when I got home. Yes, I still had an unopened box of matzo from Passover and as I'm not (really) one to waste, I've been slowly going through it. I find it a very good alternative to chips for dipping into anything things like hummus, guacamole, etc.

For dinner, I really wanted to make a BIG pasta dish that would last all weekend. I wish I took pics of the whole thing because it filled a big baking dish (and we have already eaten 3/4 of it since last night. NO JOKE Ralph has eaten about half the dish although I don't think he will admit it.)
This was a "Lasagna Style Baked Ziti" based off of this one. We made a bunch of changes (added lots of good things) so I'll post that later.
This dish X2. Ralph's was approx mine x3.5-4 - which is totally cool- that's why I wanted to make it. Whenever I cook for the two of us, I tend to make less because I'm afraid of having too many leftovers, not being able to freeze it, then seeing the food go bad. Luckily, I never have this problem when Ralph's around!

After dinner, I convinced Ralph to go on a short bike ride with me. It was so much fun!

That's all for last night's meals. Stay tuned for today's recap! 


  1. Seems like you have been creating some nice dishes again....the pasta looks great!
    Have you any idea how much distance you are swimming each time that you are in the pool? Just curious....

  2. Thanks! Check out my newest post- we cooked a LOT yesterday!

    I do try to keep track of the distance. On tuesday I figure I swam about 800 meters, on friday I counted 900 meters. The next time I go
    swimming, I'm going to try to give myself a little more time to swim, so hopefully I can log over 1000 meters!
