It’s been a relaxed (but over-caffeinated day). I managed to do not a single piece of school work which means tomorrow will be pretty busy!
A and I woke up and made breakfast together. We sauteed leftover mushrooms and onion in a little bit of evoo and then beat 2 eggs and 1/4C of skim milk in a separate bowl and cooked them all together. We had some TJ’s sourdough toast with Smart Balance on the side. His and hers.
I topped my eggs with a bit of bella gravy. The coffee has 1/2C of eggnog in it which made me happy.
Then we spent the next hour or so packing up Christmas gifts. We used green (the color and the earth-concerned) packing peanuts and red stuffing to make them more festive.
The post office in our neighborhood is astonishingly slow so that ate up a good portion of the day. 😦
When we finally did head home we stopped and got pizza on the way home. I had an eggplant slice with a diet coke.
Look at that yummy eggplant.
I did my pizza crusts in soda, it’s my favorite thing about pizza. Does anyone else do this? I also really like pretzels dipped in diet cherry coke.
I ate some TJ’s mangosteen for dessert.
I also tried to eat some of this dried pomelo but one bitter bite left me with an awful taste in my mouth for the next hour, boo.
I spent a delightful day relaxing with A and for dinner we ate some “day after Turkey Day” leftovers. I let A eat the rest of the stuffing, but I supplemented my plate with some sauteed kale. We cooked it with a little evoo and I topped mine with a sprinkle of maple syrup and red pepper flakes.
My eyes were bigger than my stomach again, and I left about a 1/4 of this on the plate. The mug is eggnog’n tea with a little splash of real eggnog stirred in.
Moving on to my next warm, caffeinated beverage – we cracked open this coffee from Fresh Market.
I didn’t love the flavor of this, I think our Folgers is better than this, it was a little bitter. I had a cup while A and I played Scrabble!
I also had a bowl of Smart Balance popcorn during another game. And I took an unphotographed Huge bite of sunflower butter while I helped A make his game snack.
I was an English major, I have a bigger vocabulary than A, and A is a terrible speller, but he always kicks my ass at this game! I don’t think I’ve ever beaten him. We had a lot of fun though, we love board games. Some of our most fun nights in college (and we did got to Sunshine U so there were a lot of fun nights!) were spent playing board games with our roomates. What dorky trend are you rocking?
