Dinner tonight was served at 5:00 sharp so that Matt’s dad and Cheryl could get back on the road to Spartanburg at a reasonable hour. It was fun to eat early! We ate when I’d normally need a snack, so it worked out well. And the whole kitchen was cleaned by 6:30PM so I had the whole night to get things done.
We enjoyed a few cocktails with our guests –
I had 2 small glasses, 1 before and 1 with dinner.
We made my mom’s Homemade Tomato Sauce with a ground beef addition
With whole wheat penne –
The sauce was delicious, per usual. Go sherry!
And Matt’s Great Harvest Virginia Rolls, which I had never had but OMG!!!!!! They are potato rolls and were the most delicious dinner rolls ever.
A dab of butter –
Pull-apart dough (mom, you would have loved them!!)
After we said goodbye, I worked for 3 straight hours. One metabolism Powerpoint assignment and one Oatmeal Buffet Real Food Consultation Report + Meal Plan later…. I’m pooped! Again!
Wanted to lounge with Gossip Girl, but I think I’ll just head up to read in bed now.
5 Minute Showtime
- I DO have class, but only one of them at 2PM
- Matt will be brewing beer all day (= busy at our house)
- But I will be working hard all day to knock more assignments off my list (coffee shop? Library?)
- I am taking a day off of exercise because 1) I need it and 2) I am getting a MET (Metabolism) test on Tuesday administered by Victoria, who works at the YMCA. It should tell me what my BMR is, so I can’t do anything to spike my metabolism tomorrow. I might start the day with yoga, but nothing strenuous.
