I was having this really weird dream through the night that I was having back surgery that I was AWAKE for and when I woke up my back was killing me. How strange is that?? Sheesh!
-1 cup water
-1/3 cup Windy Hill flax seed porridge
I’m so glad I brought bananas back into my life. I’m hoping to have a bit of time to bake with them this week, too.
I took one look at our schedule for the evenings this week and knew right away that the gym was out for today. I really need to get my ass into gear and get some Christmas shopping done so I hoofed it up to the mall. Along the way I ate a vegan energy bar to give me some strength to endure the crowd.
And boy was it busy for a Monday at noon! I ended up having to abandon my place in line at one store so that I could make it back to work on time. I didn’t even get a chance to grab a treat at Starbuck’s! The horror! :D Let me tell you though how easily a person can drop $250.00 in less than a half hour! Yikes!
Lunch was easy peasy today. I made some broccoli soup in the Magic Bullet this morning. Into the cup went 2 cups leftover steamed broccoli, 1 cup chicken stock, a LC cheese wedge, cumin, chili powder, salt & pepper. It blended up beautifully!
On the side were a few Triscuit crackers;
And lunch dessert was this pint of blueberries!
They were on sale 3/$5 on the weekend so I took advantage.
The afternoon dragged on a bit but that was just because I was super excited for my dinner plans! It was our annual Christmas dinner at my supervisor’s house and she is one fantastic cook! Last year’s dinner had an Asian flair to it. You can see what we ate right here. Tonight’s menu was fabulous! We started out with some raspberry walnut brie and crackers;
I was definitely full after this meal! D lives about 45 minutes away and this is the first in 4 years that we’ve made the drive in good weather. Usually it’s freezing and snowing. One year it was so bad that she brought all the food to work and we had a luncheon at the office instead! I heard on the news today that the last time we had no snow in November was 1937. WOW!
Anyways, it’s quite late now so I must sign off and get my booty to bed! It’s December tomorrow!
Bye for now!!
