I am in a FOUL MOOD. We just came home to a message on our machine that the range is NOT being delivered tomorrow morning from 8-10am when it was promised but from 3:45-5:45pm – when we’ll be at a holiday symphony performance. This means we will most likely not be able to cook for Gran Bett (which we have been planning for 3 months to do) and will have to wait until Sunday – or later – to have this damn stove installed. I am SO MAD. I’ve been so patient and nice to everyone and this is just getting ridiculous. Apparently “the machine” scheduled our delivery based on zip code and “the machine” does not have the capability to reschedule anything. UGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG.
(I realize it’s not that big of a deal to not have a stove for one more day in the grand scheme of things, but I am so frustrated with this company’s delivery procedures. Sears is moving down and down on my list of nice companies. I hope their PR folks read this 👿 )
In other news, I cleaned my whole house this afternoon and sat down to read my book for 30 minutes while enjoying a mug of hot chocolate (made with 1% milk and Nesquik) around 4:30pm next to a Christmas candle and my space heater before I had to leave again to take my car to the shop.
The husband picked me up at the car place and we joined Gran Bett at Karen’s for a delicious dinner –
I had a little vino before dinner –
And a cracker with brie because I was hungry –
Karen cooked this vegan loaf that she LOVES from EarthFare. It comes pre-made and is a base of wheat gluten coated in puff pastry and stuffed with a sausage-like mixture of hazelnuts and spices. You just bake it for 45 minutes or so until it browns on the outside (no recipe b/c it was pre-made).
I ate 1.25 slices –
We also had collard greens with bacon, dates and blue cheese! My fav –
And some brown rice on the side – (I had wine pour #2 with dinner)
More wine – I probably had a full 6 oz glass in 3 aloquots
Karen caught us!!! 😳
I also had a few bites of Gran Bett’s yummy banana bread straight from the loaf.
The husband is very nice and is helping me with my deep breaths so I must go and rest now.
