Tree’s Up!

Today was much the same as yesterday….staying in the house. I did get some Christmas decorations up but we’ll do breakfast first. I wasn’t really feeling a hot breakfast today so I finished up a couple boxes of cereal instead; 100_7442

This is about 1 cup of Nature’s Path gluten free maple cereal and the last bit of Nature’s Path ginger granola topped off with USVAB. Cereal must’ve been just what I was craving because this bowl hit the spot!

DD is feeling a bit better yet again, but not perfect. She spent most of the day watching TV; 100_7447

She’s always preferred lying on the floor. Weirdo! Pepper is enjoying her company, too!


Lunch snuck up on me today. The hours between 10-12 seem non-existent. I decided to use up some leftover sweet and sour sauce from Tuesday night’s pork chop dinner by using it as a pizza topping. I piled it on a flat out wrap then dotted it with goat’s milk brie; 100_7448

Then DD and I shared some fresh pineapple. 100_7449

Don’t worry…she had her own bowl!!!

Most of the afternoon was spent on the computer. I left at 3:30 to pick DS up from school and when we came home we put the tree up.


Don’t mind the cat. He figured he needed to get in on the fun! I assembled the tree and added the lights then the kids put the ornaments on. I also set out a few other things; 100_7446 100_7444 100_7445

I drank a hot chocolate peppermint stick soy to keep things festive;


Not long after the tree was up the FedEx man came to the door. I knew this could only mean something good! It was a package sent to me from Campbell’s with the new V8 Garden Blend soup and a few other goodies!!



Dinner tonight was my last Rachael Ray recipe of the week and it was the best one! 100_7456

I love how all her meals come together so fast. This was done in about 20 minutes. I also made some Jiffy corn bread to go along with it. Here’s my bowl with some grated marble cheese and neon Oikos! 100_7457

There was a bit of the yogurt left so I mixed in the last spoonful of pumpkin butter and had that as my sweet end. I didn’t take a picture though. I figure it’d be about as bright as it is above.

So, that’s all for me tonight. I’ll be watching CSI and Vampire Diaries tonight. Really hoping that they’re NOT repeats like last Thursday!!

Bye for now!!


  1. I hope your dd is feeling better soon! Poor thing! I like the floor too.. lol! I find it aligns my back nicely.. haha! When I was pregnant with my 1st I slept on the floor so much.. 'cause that way the only time my back didn't hurt!

  14. ahhh where did you find the oikos? DO you shop across the border?

  15. I just realized that's the same cookbook I got for Christmas. Did you get it at Costco by chance? ;)

    Sorry DD had the H1N1 - that does not sound like fun.
