Focaccia Famine


Today is officially the 'Start of the School Year' here.

My Yoga Training doesn't start until next
Tuesday, so I have one more week of Summer.

Nice, except i'm all alone while everyone else is at work or school...


I thought I would share with you my favorite thing I ate this weekend...


Planet Organic makes a massive Focaccia Panini Sandwich!


BBQ Chicken with hummus, mozzarella and spinach on focaccia bread.


Although I planned to save some for later, I ended up eating the whole thing :)


It pays to try new things.


Since the whole day is mine to enjoy, i'm going to catch up on all your blogs.

Call me weird, but I would rather read your posts and indulge
 in our codependent relationship, than spend the day outside...
 
...plus it's raining too



Question: Are you back at
School or Work? How's it going?

I like days like that too sometimes, even when the weather is just beautiful. It's good to go with what you want to do, as long as there's variety to the days.

I'm on an extended vacation too, awaiting a trip to Florida with my sister, and have been busy on the job search.

I'm back at work and JEALOUS of you. :) It was a rude awakening when my alarm went off this morning. Thank God for snooze! :)

It's raining here today too. Ick. I love a good foccacia, yummy. Hope you enjoy your free day to yourself!

Nina said... [reply]

I like your nails polished because you always use pretty shades :) And your food porn posts...Do I have to say it again? Ok. I love them!

Mel said... [reply]

Oh my, the sammie looks divine! I don´t think I´ve ever had foccacia bread - must change this soon ;)
Fortunately I´m having one more month left until uni starts. I´m working as a designer from my "home office" aka Macbook &i Mac a lot, so it´s not really that stressful ATM ;)

Hope, you´re enjoying your day sweetheart!! xoxo Mel

Chelsea said... [reply]

Hehe whenever I plan on only eating half of something, I always end up eating the whole thing too. ;) But that sammie looks way too delicious to save half for later!

School doesn't start until next Monday for me, so I still have another week of freedom too. Woohoo!

I'm super jealous of that panini! Looks super awesome! Enjoy yourself while you have time on your hands. I'm sure you're going to be super busy once you start on your yoga training course - which I bet is going to be great! xoxo

Ellen@FirednFabulous said... [reply]

Ohh that sandwich looks YUM-MY. BBQ chicken and hummus..Mmmm..

TheHealthyApron said... [reply]

Looks like a super yum panini! one of my favorites to eat! I am back to work today and it's grueling. Thank goodness the day is flying by though!

Laury@TheFitnessDish said... [reply]

LOL, I love your comic! I am not "back to" work or school, been working, and hopefully work gets busier!

I also love your random fact about Sound of Music very cool!

Sarena Shasteen - The Non-Dairy Queen said... [reply]

Oh good grief that sandwich looks amazing! I love bread! We are working today, but that is at home so it is ok. I love our codependent relationship! Glad you are entertained today! Have a good one Kelsey!

Healthy. Happy. Well. said... [reply]

LOVE focaccia. So good. I picked up a jalapeno one at the farmer's market this weekend. I would rather spend a day reading blogs as well. Most people would think that's weird but I think its A ok. I start school today... lovely. Enjoy another week of blogs and good eats!

Tori said... [reply]

Wow! I wouldn't have been able to eat only half either! That looks freakin delicious! I'm such a bread addict though :)

I'm not going to school this semester, which is a downer, but I am working as usual, which is also a downer!

<3 Tori

I think the internet monster just ate my comment . . . but anyway, I'm just working as usual though my husband is starting Year #2 of his PhD in another week and a half.
That sandwich is calling my name--any way you could express it to my office? =)

Yuki said... [reply]

I'm going to camosun soon! ahh, so nervous :|

lequan@luvtoeat said... [reply]

Ooh, that sandwich DOES look good :-P. I'm impressed you finished the whole thing, my kinda gurl! I actually never knew there was a Planet Organic in Vancouver too. Enjoy your day off!

Annie :D said... [reply]

Heather (Heather's Dish) said... [reply]

Ali said... [reply]

Ugh, it is raining here too - thanks to tropical storm Hermine!

Enjoy your last week of summer - I'm at work and it's boring!! haha

Kristy Sayer said... [reply]

That sandwich looks a-maze-ing! :P
I'm actually just about to officially finish my final year of school (although I haven't been doing ANY school work since July...) Australia is weird. We finish school, but then have to go back to do our exams in october - I don't really understand, but hey! vacation time :P

*Naomi* said... [reply]

omg that is GINORMOUS!!! looks so good!!

tehsina said... [reply]

Mmm BBQ chicken and hummus!

I'm enjoying my last week before school starts. Haha, blog reading = a day well spent!

foodexerciseexpress said... [reply]

Your sandwich sounds and looks delicious. I am back in school after a few weeks off (online classes) and of course it sucks!

Nicole, RD said... [reply]

The only break I got from work this summer was when I moved 800 miles - yuck! Not a fun break!

I HATED focaccia until recently. Now...it's a trigger food! YUM! And that sammie looks delicious! If I weren't having a blast with my hubby yesterday, I would've totally crawled into bed with my lap top and caught up on blogs! :)

tatiannalives said... [reply]

Neither school nor job for me.. I just ended mine and moved back home! I'll admit, it's actually a little boring :P I had this urge to just get out and do something today to break free and I ended up raking all the grass on my lawn and wheel barrowing it away! Haha... I guess that's something productive?

Oh my gosh!!! I am so jealous of all your Planet Organic swag! That sammy looks so good :)
<3 Tat

Mary @ Bites and Bliss said... [reply]

Dannnggg that's a big panini!! I bet you enjoyed every bite. :)

I'm back at school..but then again, I never left. I spent the entire Summer at school so the start of Fall semester's actually a good thing in my eyes! All that's different is that it's closer to Falll!! :D

sleepeat said... [reply]

That panini is HUGE! But it sure looks good :)

I'm going back to school *sigh*. But, fortunatley I'm no longer a freshman!!

Lisa (bakebikeblog) said... [reply]

oooh I love the sprinkle of herbs on that focaccia!

ohonemorething said... [reply]

I'm back at school! I love it but I've got a lot of work. I'm taking a lot of classes (more than usual), and even the ones I thought I wouldn't have to do written work.. well I'm writing lol. Oh well, it's all interesting. I love being stimulated and around other intelligent people. It's a nice pace of life actually :)

By the way... I LOVE focaccia bread. I think it may be my favorite kind of bread... next to the German broetchen :) But once I made some homemade focaccia and it blew my mind + with some thick homemade vegan tomato bisque yumyumyum! you should look it up on my blog :)

XOXO

Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter said... [reply]

I'm at the awkward transition between summer and school. I'm packing and working half time. It's pretty weird.

Fashion Meets Food said... [reply]

love that comic and your sandwich looks amazing!

xo

Carrie said... [reply]

I started school today. It's fun but I'm sure it will get old soon. :) It feels like fall here too, cold and dreary.

Angela (the diet book junkie) said... [reply]

haha...that's happened to me SO many times! i plan to save some food for later and end up eating the whole thing:) don't blame you one bit though, that sandwiches looked yum-o.

yay for yoga school! how long is the program? what made you decide to study?

Erica said... [reply]

The bread on that sandwich looks awesome. Sometimes just sitting and reading blogs is wonderful :) I'm backkkk to work

simplyshaka said... [reply]

I'm weird like that-it can be a beautiful all day but I just want to sttay inside but then when it's gross out, I want to go enjoy the day. I don't fight it :)

Lucky girl, school starting so late for you and all. Work is work. Meh.

Jolene - EverydayFoodie said... [reply]

I went back to work last week, and tomorrow I have my first class of the semester in my masters program.

Jen said... [reply]

Oh my word!! That sandwich looks amazing!! I wish that there was a store like that here. As for me, I began my school year 4 weeks ago. Blegh!!

Emily said... [reply]

I'm back at school today..*sigh* ;) and that sandwich looks incredible! mouth watering for sure!

xoxo

40apples said... [reply]

I'm just back at work... ho hum. I envy those students out there. ;)

Aimee said... [reply]

Wow it's enormous. My Sandwiches are all about good bread. Kinda want to reach into my computer for it ha!
Thanks for coming by my blog Kels. I def plan to update it soon.

Evan @swEEts said... [reply]

I'd much rather be eating that sandwich and reading everyones blogs than sitting at work all day! And going to work when its raining is even worse :( Im jealous of yoga school.. that sounds like fun!

Jessica said... [reply]

This sounds delicious!

Alex @ I Eat Asphalt said... [reply]

First, I am in love with that nail polish color. Second, I agree with you about staying in doors and reading blogs on a rainy day. Not much is better. Cant wait to start hearing about your yoga classes!!

Samantha said... [reply]

I am well into the routine of school--summer already seems so long ago :)
I am really eager to hear about your yoga classes--thats so exciting!

Erica said... [reply]

I still have 2 and a half weeks until classes start. I feel like I've had the longest summer break ever! Yoga school sound like fun, I can't wait to hear about it!

Kris | iheartwellness.com said... [reply]

I heart Planet Organic! I was just there today!

You are going to have so much fun next week!

Girl, I work and run my own businesses from home, so I never had time off :) But I wouldn't trade it for anything.

I saw all the little kiddos walking to school today....remember those days?!

xxoo

Candice @ ChiaSeedMe said... [reply]

That sandwich is gigantic! I love foccacia bread.

Last year I was a teacher, but decided not to go back this year. Not going back to school with everyone was a little hard, but I'm loving what I'm doing now, so it's all good.

Is your yoga training all week long? Mine is this weekend all day Saturday and Sunday. I'm excited. Can't wait to hear about your experience!

Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) said... [reply]

cant wait to hear all about the yoga adventures!!! sooo much fun & excitement for you!!!

and glad you won the give away, cant wait to see what you think of their products!

xoox

Sara @ Nourish and Flourish said... [reply]

Your delicious looking sandwich makes me miss my panini press at home!

ENJOY the extra leisure time, lovely lady! :-) I'm excited that you're about to begin your journey to become a yogini!

Monet said... [reply]

I am back at school (grad school) and I'm having a hard time adjusting! I can't wait to hear about your yoga school...what a great experience! And can I please have a bite of that sandwich? Wow!

mariposai said... [reply]

I've started college wohoo! Hope your start goes well, and that is one awesome dude of a sandwich :-)

Karin said... [reply]

Paninis are fantastic! I'd never have the self control to save some for later ;).

Ugh it's raining over here too and I'm working.. though I've been back at work since two weeks. Oh life!

Sarah @ Gluten-free tries Vegan said... [reply]

You always make me chuckle :)

I'm back at school but by at school I mean on rotation. So I'm in the emergency department of our local hospital and loving it!

Thanks for your kind words about my IBS and advice. I'm going to try everything I possibly can :) xxx

sophia said... [reply]

Are you like me? Do you think a simple (or not) sandwich, esp grilled, is the PERFECT meal on earth? Ooh yes.

I'm back in school. It's freaking busy, but fun. :-)

Susan said... [reply]

I am a slut for good bread. And that looks off the chain!

I'm not in school or working right now. Dealing with some medical stuff. It feels like work though, ha!

Alex said... [reply]

damn that sammich looks good!!!

I'm not in school and never got a break from work :( sad day. lol!

Simply Life said... [reply]

that panini looks great! Sadly, with my work I don't get a summer vacation so I've always been "back" at work :)

Justine said... [reply]

No school for me- I have an 8-5 job. The only downside is not being able to enjoy some of the prettiest parts of the day, but that's really the only thing to complain about. Plus I get to work with family, which is always nice. :)

I can't wait to hear about your yoga training! One of my friends is also my yoga instructor and she loves it so much. I hope you do as well!

Krista said... [reply]

That sandwich looks mouth watering! Foccacia makes a mean pizza crust, too...

Kids are back to school, I had no break from work. Boo!! ;)

lacesandlattes said... [reply]

I totally understand the concept of wanting to save something and then before you know it..it's gone!! The sandwich DID look amazing.

I am headed back to university next week.

couchpotatoathlete said... [reply]

That panini looks glorious!!!

I am back at work and swamped with stuff from over the weekend. I'm avoiding it for now :)

As for me - I'm back to work after the long weekend. Twas a very long hard day. I want another long weekend now. lol

Morgan @ Life After Bagels said... [reply]

That comic pic is the funniest!

I wish I was going back to school . . . siggghhhhh

mybizzykitchen.com said... [reply]

That sandwich looks amazing! I would have eaten the whole thing too!

I haven't been back to school since before you were born probably - 23 years!

Madeline - Greens and Jeans said... [reply]

Holy moly, that looks SO good! This time of year always makes me nostalgic for college! Of course, in a few weeks when people start talking about midterms that all changes...

brittac said... [reply]

good luck at yoga training!

I am also off for another week or two - so I know how you feel...but I am sure not complaining :)

Beth @ DiningAndDishing said... [reply]

I wish I was headed back to work or school! Sadly I have to work year-round :). Summer break is dearly missed!!

Tina said... [reply]
