Not only is it 59* outside, I had an Easter egg for lunch
AND I AM CAVITY FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YIPPEE! I loooove my dentist. The office is filled with zen-like colors and music, and I never, ever have to wait. At my childhood dentist I used to have to wait 1-2 hours per appointment. I just thought that’s how dentists were until I found this one. My dentist is super cool too
After the dentist I played in our old neighborhood for a bit – running errands at the post office, Target and HT. I have some kashi coupons that Anne P. sent me before she left for Prague that expire next week so I used them on 4 boxes of Honey Sesame TLC crackers – which were 2/$5 at HT! I also have 3 $1 off Oikos coupons that expire next week but every store I went in was completely sold out!! I hope I can find some before New Years. My last stop was to Great Harvest to visit the husband, who barely had 10 seconds to say hi before he was back to baking. They are slammed until Christmas Eve with bread orders! I had a generous slice of bread at GH, which promptly pushed my lunch hunger back to 1pm. Even with the bread though, that Egg Noggin’ Candy Cane breakfast lasted me forever!
For lunch I used up more of our excess: eggs + bread. Hope you guys aren’t sick of eggs yet! We still have 1 carton that needs using up with about 4 eggs in it and 1 carton that will last a while longer.
Egg Salad with Mixed Greens on Dakota Bread
Egg salad was made with 1 hard boiled egg, 1 tbsp olive oil mayo, 1 tsp zesty mustard, 1 tsp fresh frozen dill and S+P. Too bad we’re all out of paprika, because I love that in egg salad like deviled eggs!
With my sandwich I had a big plate of crunch + Smucker’s PB. This lunch was so satisfying on the palate.
Plus Candy Cane Lane tea –
I want to read my book this afternoon (The Book of Eleanor by Pamela Kaufman) but I need to work on sending out our Christmas cards. Maybe I’ll just do a little of both.
