One Week Later

December 2, 2010

Who’s ready for lunch!?

Rarr.

I’m being lazy today. I did change from PJs to workout clothes, but I have yet to work anything out but my brain. Been busy working on odds and ends – a bakery conf. call, Travel + 2010 Highlights posts, writing project admin.

Hunger came on fast + furious at 1:30 and I was sitting down to lunch at 2.

Enjoyed a lovely, colorful Hugh Jass salad with the last of the Thanksgiving Day leftovers – one week later!

Afternoon plans include more of the same, plus a body workout at the gym (and some biking!) followed by another dinner with Karen and a UVA event!

Looks delicious! I have to say, I LOVE all the bowls you’ve been using lately! Do you actually have multiple ones of each or just one or two of each to keep photos interesting? I like switching it up but I feel kinda weird just buying 1 bowl or plate on its own!

I have 1-2 of most – except for our standard white Pottery Barn wedding set.

Salad sounds great! I need to throw a bit of honey on my salads. I always forget it’s in the pantry!

I can’t believe Thanksgiving was a week ago! It strangely seems like so much longer.

I am not going to tell you how long it took me to figure out what “Hugh Jass” means… ’cause its just embarassing. :)

Have you run across any lavendar honey? It is really good with lavendar seasalt and melty blue cheese on crostini!

28 Marisa @ Loser for Life December 2, 2010 at 3:36 pm

I’m not sick of Thanksgiving leftovers yet! We finished off the last of it for dinner and now I’m wishing for more :)

29 Kate (What Kate is Cooking) December 2, 2010 at 3:46 pm

I wish I had still had leftovers! The only thing that remains in my fridge are some mashed potatoes. Not that I’m complaining, I do love them :)

I had one of those days yesterday. I literally wore my workout clothes from 6am-5pm and I never made it to the gym. Oh well! I think wearing the clothes burns calories, right? :)

I used up the last of my T-day turkey today too…topped this brown rice salad with it instead of my usual go-to chicken: http://eating-made-easy.com/2010/12/02/brown-rice-salad-with-chicken-apples-and-pomegranate-arils/

Yum! p.s. love the use of “Hugh Jass”

I love your leftover salad!! So much flavor in one big bowl. :D

49 Jenn from Much to My Delight December 2, 2010 at 8:41 pm

Can’t believe how creative you got with your leftovers! Stuffing in a salad–unheard of? And I’m so intrigued by your lavender salt. I’ve never heard of that, but I bet it tastes wonderful.

Reply

50 J3nn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) December 2, 2010 at 8:46 pm

Glad I’m not the only one still eating leftover turkey! We had a 20 lb one for 3 people; I’ve eaten turkey everyday for a week, LOL.

I want to eat more veggies now……you’re inspiring! That salad is to die for I’m sure. Somehow I end up eating loads of carrots and onions and forget about other things. haha
