Thanks for the comments on me and my sis! She is the older one, btw , but only by 14 months. Regarding yesterday’s run. I had planned on 6 miles, so that is why I went to the gym to finish up the run. I tend to be quite disciplined with my exercise (unlike my food), so I knew that if I wasn’t going to finish outside, I needed to go the gym. I would have been disappointed if I had stopped at 2 miles. That’s just me, though. The gym is only a couple miles from my house, and it was just opening up when I came back home, so it’s pretty easy to pop over there.
Sunday bagel day! We were up a little early (like that is new…) and headed out to Panera. The gingerbread bagel is gone, but one of my favorites is back! The trail mix bagel!
WooHoo. Full of nuts and bits of dried fruit. So tasty.
Since we were early, we could sit and chat for a while over 3 cups of coffee. Then we did a quick grocery trip for things we couldn’t get at BJs yesterday. Fastest shopping ever! And strawberries were in stock – although $3.99 a pound (still got some 😀 )
Lots of work to do today. I think some MTs are on vacation or sick, because there has been a backup of work, which is unusual for this time of year, so my workday started fast and furious. Lunch was some fresh cut pineapple and an open-face egg sammie!
That was the last of the corporate waffles, which we will never buy again (unless the wafflemaker breaks!).
Afternoon break of a latte!
No snack with it. I went waaaay overboard on chocolate last night while watching football, so today is definitely a lower calorie day. It wasn’t even the chocolate from the giant bag of chips, either. I go along so well, and then have a backslide from time to time. Sigh…….. Good thing I did 6 miles.
Our house smells so fabulous. We watched Good Eats last week and AB made some red beans and rice. They looked so, so good! So, we decided to make them today. Actually, John made because of me working. He followed the recipe except for using a smoked pork hock (from the smokehouse) instead of pickled pork and left out the celery, as it was bad. He also used less garlic 😀
It was very good! I didn’t want kidney beans, so we found a bag of small red beans. I was pretty okay with their texture. Served with brown rice and hot sauce, of course! We have enough of this to feed an army! Anyone want to stop by? 🙂 Hope it freezes well.
Dessert was strawberries drizzled with a bit of chocolate sauce (that John also made today.
Perfectly simple and fresh.
We’ve got snow a comin’ tonight! I like snow for the most part, but I have to say with the snow on the way and the red beans and rice for dinner, I am so looking forward to New Orleans in 2 weeks! Eeeeeeeeeeeee!!!
Question: Do you like snow?
