Today was one of those days. The kind where I was in outfit #2 by 10am and never got around to taking a shower. But the meals were good and the little company was even better!
I made this glorious bowl of oatmeal for breakfast, and it kept me going until 1pm. Coach’s Oats with pumpkin and cottage cheese swirled in and sunbutter on top.
With two cups of decaf coffee, nice and toasty
Mazen is obsessed with his llama that Hannah Banana gave him. I’m guessing it’s the softness of his fur, but he loves to kiss lick the llama’s face, and this was the first time I caught them snuggling together. THE CUTENESS!
Lunch was leftover pizza + salad by the Christmas tree
Heated in our toaster oven for maximum crispiness
served with a plate of salad greens topped with olive oil, hummus, chopped veggies, avocado, marcona almonds and figs.
We made it out of the house late this afternoon. I had hoped for a run yesterday and again today, but it just wasn’t gonna happen. Maybe tomorrow. We did get a little walking in though, and we hit up the post office and Splendora’s where I picked up a decaf cappuccino as part of project urban
By the time Matt came home tonight, I had 3/4 of a gourmet dinner ready to go by candlelight.
Matt’s bonus grandmother Bonnie sent us some various meats for Christmas – perfect foodie + new parents gift! We decided to kick them off with the filet mignon. Sprinkled with lemon pepper salt and seared on both sides. To the right we had TJ’s braising greens sautéed in 1 tbsp lemon juice and 2 tbsp Dijon mustard. So simple but tons of flavor.
I also baked an acorn squash – 400* for 30 minutes – drizzled with coconut butter after the fact.
A little red wine rounded out our romantic dinner for two. Baby was sound asleep in his swing.
Baby just had his bath, and now I’m going to take mine!! With bubbles. And a magazine.
