‘Twas a busy day, but a good one. And I just realized I haven’t checked in on any of my internet friends today!
I pack two snacks on days when I have class through the evening. Packing a dinner takes the fun out of the meal and since I don’t have to pack one (I would if I were getting home in the 9:00 hour), I’d rather snack and come home hungry in the 8:00 hour for a comfy meal on the couch.
Snack #1 was intended for ~4:30 and I ate it at 3:30 ’cause I was hangry from my workout! The sculpt class left me with that overall warm body feeling that seems to suggest a boost in metabolism. Perhaps the class worked me harder than I thought.
Snack #2 was consumed at 5:30 (two hours later) during MNT. Clif Nectar are one of my favorite bars, and I think I heard a rumor they are being discontinued!?
2 hours later, I was still in class and getting REALLY hungry.
So you can imagine how delicious this looked when I walked in the door –
I’ve asked Matt to cook one meal a week for me since I have my double night classes. So far he has only impressed me with deliciousness! Although I usually pick out the recipes, he sure cooks them well. These were by far the BEST BAKED BEANS EVER!!!! Instead of the traditional watery brownish brown sugar sauce, they were in a sherry tomato sauce with bacon (and brown sugar). They reminded me of my mom’s homemade tomato sauce, which is drenched in sherry. I love sherry in food!
The inspiration recipe was from Country Living magazine: Honey-Baked Beans.
And because Matt loves you all so much, he left a list of the ingredients he used on the dry erase board and I turned them into a recipe page (this one is worth saving!): Bacon Baked Beans.
With my beans I had a big salad – romaine in vinegar + oil, mushroom, pepper, zucchini + gorgonzola.
Served on a tray with a dose of Gossip Girl!
I’m sleepy and off to read a little before I close my eyeballs.
