How was the weekend? Mine was pretty quiet and quite nice. We had pizza and saw American Hustle, got in some workouts (after a two-week break!) and spent lots of time in the kitchen. I’m so ready and excited for Christmas!
This daily eats is what a standard Sunday looks like around here…
coffee/breakfast: I don’t usually eat breakfast on the weekends, and after an indulgent meal the night before (wine, crab legs, eggnog and too many brown butter snickerdoodles) I definitely wasn’t hungry this morning. I enjoyed my coffee (and 1/2 & 1/2!) with a side of RHOBH and some blog/learnist work.
workout: 6ish mile hike to, up and back from Runyon canyon. I love being able to get a good hike, right from our house. I didn’t take a picture today, but this is what it looks like:
I also decided that as of today, I’m always wearing a hat when we go for hikes. No wrinkles for me!
snack: when we returned home, I was (of course) hungry so I dug into some Rosemary & Olive Oil Triscuits. I don’t buy these crackers often because I eat them in three sittings…every time I bring them home.
lunch: I wanted to go out, but we had a Packer game on the DVR and little desire to “get ready” so lunch was random. Leftover pizza (from Stella Barra – yum!) + some frozen chicken & kale dumplings that we had made a few weeks (months?) ago + a cookie for dessert.
wine: I sipped some wine while making mushroom lasagna – béchamel and all!
snack: saltine crackers, a bit of pickled herring and another splash of wine
dinner: Sadly, the mushroom lasagna wasn’t for us…it smelled SO good. But it did put me in the mood for pasta, so I swapped out the planned sweet potato fries for mac & cheese. Chicken legs + mac & cheese + green beans…and a cookie, of course! (I buy organic chicken legs from Costco, they are tasty and pretty inexpensive.)
I hope you have a very, Merry Christmas! (What’s on the menu?)
