Skype is awesome! Nick and I talked to my little sister and her husband (who are in Spain) for almost 3 hours tonight! It’s so cool to be able to talk to someone that far away – for free.
It was fun to catch up with them. They just took a 2 week trip over Christmas break to see London, Oxford, Glasgow, Edinburgh, and Dublin so we got to hear all their funny travel stories AND talk about our upcoming trip to visit them in February – I can’t wait!
Dinner was late tonight since we were talking with them, but Nick put some of the leftover strata in the oven to heat it up. I’m glad we had leftovers waiting for tonight – that made dinner super easy and let us talk with them a bit more.
The strata reheated beautifully in the oven. It kept the bread a little bit crisp, but the inside and the pieces with most of the egg/milk were still soft.
And I ended up having a donut this afternoon, right before I left work.
Nope, I didn’t need it – wasn’t even really hungry – but I took it as a sign that I should have it :) My coworker came around asking if anyone wanted the last one, and the flavor left was toasted coconut – one of my favorite donuts from Carol Lees.
So I had it. And every sugary bite was wonderful! Not the best afternoon snack, but I only have a donut every few months or so and I’m not worried about it. And considering my office has donuts every Friday and they’re from this awesome place in town, I’m surprised I don’t eat them more often.
Plus, it was fresh + local. That has to count for something, right?
Can’t wait for tomorrow morning! We have new coffee that we picked up from our local shop today and my sourdough is on the counter…just waiting to be made into pancakes ;)
