We’re here! There’s ice on the trees, but I think the forecast is for mild temps tomorrow. I had a great night with my family!
It wasn’t a bad trip – only about 2 hours. I got some of my cultural foods work done (thanks to the husband for driving!). I had 2/3 a LaraBar and the very last of our veggies for a snack around 4:00 (the husband had 1/3 of the bar)
I started the night with a glass of wine around 6:30. The rest of the group started at 5 but I knew if I waited having a first drink out a little I’d be happier and not feel icky in the morning. We opened a Spanish red blend – it was great! We’re working on a jigzaw puzzle and have a fire going!
Around 7:15 I started to get REALLY hungry but dinner wasn’t quite ready, so I had a couple almonds I packed from home. Perfect solution to tide hunger – (eww my fingers look gross and wrinkled!)
The husband and I volunteered to do dinner – whole wheat pasta with grilled eggplant and zucchini and Al Fresco brand chicken sausage (there’s a nice gas grill here), homemade tomato sauce (made at home and brought in a tupperware) and Parmesan cheese. Sourdough bread on the side!
I eyeballed a cup of pasta, about 1/4 cup veggies (wish I could have had more!), 1/3 a whole chicken sausage, 1/2 a cup of homemade sause and 1/2 tbsp cheese:
Plus about 1 oz of sourdough on the side -
And another 2-3 oz wine!
We made No Pudge Brownies! I’ve had this mix on hand for a while now and was glad to finally make them (I’ve had these before though and liked them in the past). Tonight’s were GREAT (I think they were mentioned in the comments a few days ago). They are fudgey and moist and the only addition to the mix is vanilla yogurt. I had twice as much as I had hoped to have (basically 2 instead of 1) but they were GOOD, especially the end pieces
Plus a cup of caffeine free orange tea while the brownies cooked -
Tomorrow’s the big ski day! I’m not a great skier, so I’m kind of nervous. I’ve been a few times, but not enough to be comfortable. And like many adults, I feel like I get worse at everything as I get older. We’re doing a full day, so I probably won’t be blogging until after dinner.
See you tomorrow night
