Turbo Mode

I have been in Turbo Mode this week.   Between working full time, single parenting many days of the month because Scott travels for his work, and just getting my errands ran, my blog tended to, food made, clothes washed, butts wiped, and finding time for a great meetup with a wonderful friend, I have been rushing around in fifth gear all week.  Not something new, though.

Yesterday I went to

Trader Joe’s

regular grocery store

picked up a prescription

tanned (in preparation for our impromptu vacation that’s coming up)




got in a 3 mile run and a 20 minute at home workout

and then I still had to go to my paid work. 

So pretty much I just sat around on the couch eating peanut butter caramel chocolate chip cookies (vegan, GF).  Kidding. Sleep?  What’s that?

I have been making food on the fly like salads with fresh veggies

Dressed with homemade Vegan Slaw Dressing

I’ve wanted to make up some Salsa & Cheezey Baked Beans & Vegetables too

Makes a decent quantity so I have planned leftovers for future meals which saves me precious time!

Desserts are always in order.  Even when in turbo mode.

Something easy, one bowl, no baking required, not a lot of dishes.  And Chocolaty.

From my last post, Easter Baskets and Celebrating, it was interesting to hear your thoughts on Easter and religious holidays and what holidays, if any, you celebrate and identify with.

And what fun memories many of you shared about your childhood Easter baskets.   To everyone who’s celebrating Easter or Passover, I hope your holidays are happy and fun-filled!


1. Have you been running around in Turbo Mode at all lately?   If so, what have you been turbo’ing through?

I like to take time to smell the roses.  Or the hibiscus flowers. This week just hasn’t been that kind of week.   Oh well, soon enough I’ll be on a little vacation but up until then, duty calls.

I got 5 hours of sleep.  But not all strung together.  Better than 4 though.

Changing the sheets on my bed.

No Bake Nutter Butter Special K Bars with Chocolate Frosting

Not sure they are my favorite of all time, but peanut butter, peanut butter cookies, brown sugar, vanilla, topped with chocolate makes me incredibly happy.  This week at least.

Enjoy your almost Friday!

  3. I’m impressed by this.

  4. Catching up on your blog after being at the paintball field through the weekend.
    I was in turbo mode all of last week: paid job, paintball field prep, food prep, groceries, etc.

    The best thing that happened to me today is: hugs from my husband & a ride to work
    The chore I’m putting off: vacuum the carpets and change the bed sheets
    My favourite dessert of all time: Raw Vegan Chocolate Coconut Snowballs – just made a batch on Sunday
