On the couch, that is. I woke up with a cold this morning so aside from DS’s hockey game, I’ve been parked at home. I shouldn’t be too surprised to have woken up with a stuffed nose and coated throat considering how energy sapped I felt Thursday and Friday. Blah. Despite that, I was hungry!
I scarfed that back which made my belly happy!
I had some time before the hockey game started so I whipped over to the grocery store next to the rink to buy some goat’s milk yogurt and kefir. I also found some lovely orange cauliflower in the “reduced to sell” area and a beautiful pork roast which was on for a great price. I made it back to the rink in time to buy a hot chocolate before the game got underway. And what a game! The boys won 5-0…this is their 3rd win in a row…..and the BEST part was that DS scored the 5th goal!! My excitement metre was off the charts. :) The boys didn’t fare so well during the regular season, but have won 3 out of 4 playoff games. There are 2 more games before the round robin ends. Then the 2 top teams will play a best 3 of out 5 for first place. So far, we are in 2nd.
I wasn’t sure what I wanted for lunch. I only knew that whatever it was, it had to be hot. I finally settled on a toasted Ezekiel English muffin with and egg white/egg beater mixture, goat’s milk brie and Sabra hummus. I also added some sour cream n’ onion rice cakes to my egg shaped, Easter bunny plate:
Much better for me and the cold of the carrots actually felt nice on my throat.
What a baby doll! I love all 3 of my kitty's, but because Pepper is so much younger than the other 2, he’s more fun.
I made a wonderful meal using the pork roast I bought today. I seasoned the meat with some salt and pepper and made a “sauce” for it. This consisted of 2/3 cup of water, 1/3 cup pomegranate preserves, 2 tbsp each of Dijon mustard and balsamic vinegar, 1 tbsp freshly grated ginger and 3 minced garlic cloves. I whisked it until combined and poured it over the meat, then I added potatoes and carrots. I baked it 1.5hrs covered and another 1/2 uncovered.
I also made a pot of brown/jasmine rice as a side. This is the brand that I use:
Oh, yes I did. And that was the last piece so you won’t have to see anymore of it for at least another year! :)
I’m going to disconnect now and curl up under a blanket with some magazines that need reading. Hope you’ve all had a great day!
Bye for now!!
