One day down, 3 to go!
Work today was really busy. I learned to do some new reports today, and had tons of emails to go through, submission to process, letters to send, and reminders to get out.
I finally reached into my snack drawer at work around 4 this afternoon.
I forgot I had a few little bags of these 100-calorie cocoa-almonds! They’re leftover from our Honduras trip this summer, and I love them. It was the perfect little afternoon snack to hold me over.
I honestly wanted a bigger snack, but I knew dinner would be quick once we got home and I didn’t want to spoil my appetite.
We got home to a MESS by Maggie – her specialty these days :) She just has stuff everywhere when we get home, and I don’t blame her. I’m sad we’re not home with her during the day.
After washing the dishes and holding Maggie so Nick could sweep up the mess, I heated up some dinner.
I heated up the leftover chili, diced up some more red onion + avocado, and got the tortilla chips out of the cabinet.
I love how chili gets better as it sits. It tasted even better than it did last night.
And then dessert!
Before I got the chili ready, I put a dessert in the oven for us :)
I made a few changes to what I had one hand, and they were awesome.
- For sweetness, I used a total of 1/2 cup brown sugar, 2 Tbsp maple syrup, and 2 Tbsp agave
- I used 1/2 cup whole wheat flour and 1/2 cup regular
- I didn’t use any extracts or almond milk
I’m on my second one, and Nick’s already had 4! I’d say they’re tasty :)
Nick and I are watching a puppy training video and waiting for 10 pm. We saw a few episodes of this show “White Collar” this weekend and really liked it, so we’re hoping we can stay up long enough to watch the new episode.
Do you think we can do it?!? :)
I’m crossing my fingers…
