Okay - here’s a glimpse into what I’m usually like (my friends and family can vouch for this).
I turned on my computer to start blogging dinner and wanted to check my email so I clicked my Firefox icon.
When the internet browser popped up, it said I had no connection! Of course, I start getting antsy thinking that the connection is down because of the weather here or that our router is acting up/unplugged…I close Firefox and try reopening 5 times before realizing that my wireless switch on my computer was just flipped off.
I may have book smarts, but I have always been a little lacking in the “common sense” department. :) At least I have funny stories!
I loved hearing your goals! I’ve read a lot of yours already, but it’s always nice to just write them down or say them again. Plus it’s fun seeing how many different goals people have for this coming year.
Lunch today was boring + leftovers: Nick and I each had some of the leftover couscous and chicken, and I ate the rest of the green beans from the other night. And a clementine to finish out lunch.
I was pretty excited for dinner, though!
Easy + Cheesy.
I made us some Annie’s Mac’n’Cheese tonight and mixed these two boxes together so we could have some leftovers and/or lunches.
To pump up the macaroni, I sliced up 2 artichoke/garlic chicken sausages and crisped them up in the pan while the water was boiling.
Then once the pasta was almost done cooking, I added 4-5 cups of broccoli to the pasta water and 1 bag of mixed veggies (corn, green beans, carrots, peas) to cook the veggies.
Drain the pasta + veggie mix and then add the cheese sauce and sausage!
Couldn’t be easier :)
I topped mine with a little crushed red pepper, garlic, and salt.
Even after Nick and I ate our bowls and had one more scoop, we have plenty leftover for lunches or another dinner this week.
We’ve been playing with Maggie – she’s doing great with “sit” now! –and trying to see if her and Roxy can be friends :\ That’s not going so well yet…I just hope they can kind of get along once Maggie is out of the “puppy phase”.
And now for dessert – I was hungry tonight, and no wonder! I sort of totaled up the calories for today in my head just to see where I was, and I needed more food.
For some reason, I just haven’t been hungry lately for afternoon snacks, and that’s messing me up. I didn’t really have any snacks when we were out of town for vacation so I got out of my normal routine.
Luckily, I had just enough ice cream left in the freezer for a little mug of dessert :)
The last scoop of the german chocolate ice cream, a couple of crushed pretzels, and a few chocolate chips.
Salty, sweet, creamy. I’m sad there was only 1 scoop!
See you for a giveaway tomorrow ;)
