The UPS truck stopped in our cul-de-sac today. Of course I assumed it wasn’t for me, but he started coming toward our door with a big box!!
Turns out my grandmother send a box full of goodies – linens galore and some fun antique dishes (hint hint, to use on the blog!)
I unwrapped each item eager to see what was inside. Here are some of the dishes and linens.
My grandmother reads the blog – hi Gram!!
All ready for Easter too –
Of course I had to eat my snack on a plate and chose the blue one (I should know the name for this kind of china but I forget – Blue Willow maybe? My mom has a ton too so I think I remember that name).
I had the tiniest banana, sliced very thin, with a half serving of tiny crackers, each dabbed with a tiny bit of almond butter. I actually wasn’t that hungry but I knew I couldn’t wait 2 hours for dinner so I chose something small but fun. I drizzled a little honey on the leftover banana. All served with a tiny fork!
I also had a cup of tea. Here’s my snack with my grandmother’s initial linens. I believe she said HER grandmother made these!?
Change of Plans
It’s been a long day, and the husband and I weren’t in the mood to make rice and cabbage, so we ate what we were craving: sweet potato and brussels sprouts. The planned dinner got bumped to Friday 🙂
The part that didn’t change was TJ’s Salmon Patties. We baked them and topped with half a slice of muenster cheese! I also sprinkled on some dill – my favorite herb!
The sweet potato fries turned into sweet potato chips because we cut the discs so thin. Some of them burned too. Whoops! The smoke alarm went nuts. I had some ketchup on the side.
Plus frozen, thawed, and baked brussels sprouts – with some spicy dijon mustard and dill –
All together with more tea (Good Earth this time)
Dinner tonight was about 470 kcal, 10 grams fiber and 27 grams protein.
I munched on two ginger cookies for dessert. I LOVE how crispy these are!
Do any of you have an “oh my gosh this is A.MAZING” pasta salad recipe?? I got a craving for some today so I’d like to plan one for my lunch this weekend or next week.
My right hand’s thumb connection is killing me – I think from too much computer use. I’m off to take a bath and read in bed. I need to do some studying, but there’s no use trying to get anything productive done tonight. I’ve checked out mentally. But I plan to get up early tomorrow and get cranking on the work I haven’t done the past two days from the start, so see you bright and early!
