I had a doozy of a day, how about you?
To tell you the truth, my day was extremely frustrating. I had a hard time with Maggie this afternoon and work was pretty busy…it’s just been too long of a day, know what I mean?
But – I’m letting it go.
Work is over, Maggie is doing great now, dinner was good, and I got some fun mail today that totally turned my mood around (and thankfully, that happened before Nick got home to a crabby and cranky Brandi!)
Our dinners the past two nights were both from the Dollars to Donuts cookbook, using the leftover pork from the roast recipe I made last weekend.
Last night, I made the Pork, Currant & Pine nut Pasta for our friends, and it was great! I would have never thought to put those ingredients together, but they made a delicious pasta sauce.
Tonight’s dinner also utilized the pork – the last of it, actually – and Nick and I both LOVED this dinner.
I served mine on a slice of Nature’s Pride Honey Wheat bread with some broccoli on the side.
Another winner from this cookbook!
The package I got today was from my mom.
She mailed us the candy and little gifts that had been in our Christmas stockings at their house – it was so fun to see Christmas candy wrappers and open a few small gifts today.
Nick and I both got some candy, and I got Julie & Julia (the DVD), a little I Love Lucy calendar for my purse :) and, as always, Jelly Bellys. I love Jelly Bellys – probably my favorite candy.
I’m pretty sure this candy will be dessert tonight. AND there’s an all new How I Met Your Mother!!! One more hour – it’s gonna be legen…wait for it… ;)
See you tomorrow – I have another fun giveaway planned!
Let’s focus on the positive: What were the best parts of your day today?
- opening up these little gifts and candy
- talking to my mom on the phone
- finding out some exciting family news
- Maggie sleeping by my side while I worked this morning
- Nick complementing our dinner tonight
