9 +6 are similar so 2009 is kind of like 2006, which is like 26! So hopefully that means it’ll be a good year. Plus it’s the year I’ll spend most of my time at age 26! My whole life I have tried to find ways to connect things to the number 26. It’s just such a nice number
I am running so behind today because I got an illness mid-morning. I don’t know if it was the two cups of coffee, last night’s adventure and/or general dehydration (although I wasn’t thirsty), but I felt so nauseous around noon. I spent the morning unpacking our Xmas gifts and cleaning out one of our kitchen cabinets and by the time I finished I couldn’t stand to think about food. So I went upstairs and got in bed to try to take a nap, but I couldn’t fall asleep. Around 1:45 I just got back up and took a shower and started to feel better. Weird.
Since we still had no food in the with the egg-ception of a ton of eggs (Karen brought over a carton the night I was gone) the husband made us scrambled egg sandwiches.
Each sandwich was 1.5 eggs and some sauteed red bell pepper with dill, S+P and a laughing cow wedge on GH bread.
I ate mine with a knife and fork because I knew if I picked it up the egg would fall out!
We also shared an apple
And he tempted me by getting out a blondie for dessert, of which I had one bite. The baker is such a bad influence!
After lunch (at 3pm) we set out on a trek to Great Harvest to pick up some dough and to Trader Joe’s, which I was very sad to find closed. So we stopped at Fresh Market on the way back for vegetables. I was THRILLED to find Chobani at Fresh Market and a 32 oz tub of Fage! Trader Joe’s greek is still the cheapest, but I got a few peach Chobani’s to enjoy. And I’m glad I can find them close to home now. I also wanted to buy some of FM’s tempting coffees – Rum Cake and Caramel – but I talked myself out of spending the money since we have coffee at home Our whole bike adventure was 10 miles and took us almost and hour and a half including our stops.
When I was cleaning out our cabinets I found a bunch of Gnu bars that I’ve had for a while. I don’t really care for these anymore. Is anyone interested in a food swap who likes these? I’ll entertain any offers at KathEats at Gmail dot Com
I got a Barnes + Noble gift card for Christmas. What book should I buy??!!?
I’ve got a bunch of items simmering together on the stove – wheatberries, brown rice (extra servings) and tonight’s bean-y dinner! It pays off to simmer a bunch of things at once and then you’ll just have them on hand when you need them in a flash.
Speaking of dinner, I’m getting hungry! It might be time to get started and have an early meal tonight.
