As I type this, I’m on hold with Customer Service, because I ordered some Christmas gifts from a website and accidentally didn’t change the shipping address to my parent’s house (where I will be starting the 22nd!)
I try my hardest to avoid going to stores (other than local businesses) because I hate the crowds, but apparently calling Customer Service is just as bad! I’ve been sitting on the phone for close to 20 minutes now!
On to the post! I thought I’d do another WIAW, this time the right way (I documented yesterday’s eats)!
After the oatmeal debacle of last week, I’ve been back to eating eggs for breakfast:
..plus a piece of sausage and half of a whole-wheat bagel with neufchatel. I really think that the Kroger brand 100% whole wheat bagels are the best. Have you had them?
Lunch yesterday was so so good. I had some manager’s special Brussels Sprouts in my fridge that needed to be cooked, so I sauteed them and half a sweet potato in some oil. I put it on top of some leftover rice from our taco night the other night, and squirted a ton of Sriracha all over it:
It was a huge, delicious and healthy lunch! Win! I followed it up with a Kind of Healthy cookie! This lunch really powered me through the afternoon. I usually get a huge case of the 3 pm munchies, but I was pretty satisfied all afternoon. I did munch on an apple around 4:30, because Zach had a haircut after work and I knew dinner would be a little later.
We had burger night for dinner! It’s one of my favorite nights (I think Zach agrees). We always have baked french fries, because we love them. I tried a new veggie burger recipe last night. I had some already cooked lentils in the fridge, so I just ground them up in the food processor, added egg, Parmesan cheese, spices and breadcrumbs. It made a very dense burger:
…with roasted Brussels a beer on the side! We watched some Christmas movies last night — two of my favorites: Love Actually (soooo good!) and Bad Santa (hilarious!) Zach’s sister Courtney and her boyfriend Justin came over, and their brought their Doberman “puppy”, Margot!
I wish this picture weren’t so dark, but we had the mood lighting going. Having Margot at our apartment is kind of like having a bull in a china shop. She’s still a puppy, but she’s as big as a full grown dog, so she just bounces around like crazy and it’s pretty funny. My cats aren’t very dog-friendly (I’m hoping this will change when we get a small puppy and it’s around all the time), so we put up a baby gate to restrict Margot to the living room. She brings a toy, and she wants you to chase her, so when we watch a movie, she spends most of her time bringing her toy to each individual person and setting it on them. As soon as you try to grab it, she takes it back and runs. If you really ignore her, she will place the toy in your hand to really try to get the game going. It’s adorable.
So, all in all it was a good night.
Question of the Day:
What’s your favorite Christmas movie!?
