Check out the gingerbread cookie recipe if you haven’t already! I didn’t put nutritional info there because it really will depend on the size of the cookie and whether you use the protein powder or not.
I took last night off from blogging and the internet in general. Unplugging is a good thing at times! I had half a post written, but that will go to internet recycling. Sometimes I feel a pressure to post every night, but then I realize it’s okay not to do it! I just really enjoy it most times.
It was soooo cold when I got up this morning. 0 degrees F. I slept in since it’s my weekend!
All layered up! I love this sweater. John and I got up to put on the coffee pot and have a leisurely breakfast instead of me exercising:
There’s a layer of blueberry sauce on the bottom, too
I blew the snacking today. I gave in to some stress eating. Turns out we won’t be refinancing the rental property after all. I am pretty bummed, but it was a lack of detail reading on my part. Can’t refinance for 3 years on this house, not 2. Sigh….. So many phone calls later and dipping my hand into the honey roasted peanut jar while on hold and such. It’s okay, though. I was very upset for a little while, but it’s only money, right? There could be many, many worse things. We just need to hash out a new plan.
Even after eating nuts, I still wanted lunch 😀
Egg salad! This is one of my favorite sandwiches. I grew up thinking I hated egg salad, but what I really didn’t like was egg salad with pickles and soggy with too much mayo. My egg salad is a little more on the dry side.
We got a nice gift from one of our suppliers. Usually they send candy or nuts or chocolate or something scary, so we looked at the box with some trepidation. Well, this was inside! Nice scented things 😀
Will have to see what the other companies send. Fingers crossed they are more like this one!!
Included a little bit of this:
Hey, it’s my weekend, right?
Ornament of the day:
Another one I made this year. John says it looks like a spider, but it is supposed to be a snowflake!
I will give you dinner pictures and end this post – look what happens when I take a day off = epic post! Is anyone still here??
John’s football dinner that I was required to purchase included a side salad and we split a cheese stromboli.
It’s basically a calzone that is rolled up instead of folded over. I think there is less cheese this way? Although there was still enough 😆 I am so glad John splits these things with me!
On a side note, is anyone receiving RSS emails from my blog anymore? They stopped on the 11th and I am getting a feed error that I cannot get rid of for the life of me. I may have to reburn my feed, I don’t know. Can you believe I am thinking of taking some PTO just to get my blog cleaned up and organized?? 😆 Now that is a dedicated blogger!
Question: Do you fear food gifts?
