In keeping with the spirit of eating everything in sight during the holiday season, I came away a huge winner this weekend, and in no particular order, I give you, drumroll please...
Things I ate today:
butter (for the pancakes)
BTW, I place a piece of bacon in the fold of the buttered chocolate-chip pancake and then eat it like a taco.
muddy buddies (which are chocolate-peanut-butter coated chex mix with powered sugar)
mint magic cookies (which are chocolate cookies with a mint Hershey kiss hidden inside--and yes, I did make them, and I can post the recipe if you want).
macaroni and cheese
about 8 chicken nuggets with BBQ sauce
pumpkin cheesecake bread
1/2 bbq chicken sandwich
I think that's about it, but I can't be sure.
Things I haven't done today:
Things I wanted to do today but didn't:
Go for a run
Wash my face
(you know what)
Things I want to do after I'm off the computer:
(you know what again)
Things I will think about doing after I get off the computer:
How gross I am today
Getting my book published someday
(same thing as above)
Things I did do today:
Stay in my PJs all day
Clean the kitchen about a hundred times
Feed a bunch of people about a hundred times
Here are some pictures I'd like to share to show you I've been in a festive mood lately and am no longer grappled in depression. I give you the view from our upstairs, looking down at our tree (which, I love to tell everyone I got for $25 the day after Christmas at Target one year, and also, if you'll note, the color theme happens to be of a patriotic nature -- all we had was red, white and blue strands!
And here is the snowman we made. He's really big, but now kinda melty:
And then, lastly, if you're still searching for THE perfect gift for those loved ones who are Professional Alcohol Consumers (aka PACs), you simply cannot go wrong with this gift. And I'll tell you, no one ever, will ever, ever be able to top this gift that I gave to my parents. Not only is it a conversation piece, a wonderful accoutrement to the kitchen decor, it is also extremely functional and fun! Merry Christmas Mom and Dad!
