I got all the groceries bought and put away, found a few Christmas gifts I needed (with coupons!), and completed my fun blogger errand today :)
After singing along to a lot of Christmas music in the car…I got home around 1:45, and Nick and I were both ready for lunch.
I had a coupon for an Applegate Farms product, so I bought these chicken nuggets for us to try for lunch today.
They were great! They only took about 10 minutes to crisp up and they just tasted like really good chicken nuggets.
Nick mixed up some honey mustard for us, and we each had a salad and some bbq popchips!
Yup, I finally found Popchips, too. I had some coupons to get a free bag of them, but couldn’t find them anywhere. Finally, I found a few flavors at Target last week. The bbq ones are so tasty – kind of a sweet and spicy bbq flavor.
I’ve got to go switch some laundry and get my hummus/veggie platter ready for our potluck tonight! It should be fun.
I’m just happy it’s kind of chilly because I’m wearing my gray boots again today – they make me happy.
– Work was pretty good, and I had a good snack of veggies + hummus.
– I got the sweetest package from a great friend (and fellow blogger!) today that you’ll be seeing soon :)
– I MOVED today for the first time in months.
– Dinner was killer.
Let’s start with the movement.
So, the last time Nick and I went running was the week of Halloween!
November was kind of crazy with the Foodbuzz Festival and Thanksgiving, and it got cold + dark…which means we can’t run outside here anymore. We don’t belong to a gym, so for the past couple of months, I just haven’t done anything.
And I just needed to move today. So I did.
Once we got home this afternoon, I took the main part of our dinner out of the freezer to thaw and I did a little peanut butter flow, thanks to Polly :)
I did Polly’s 35 minute yoga video from her DVD, and it was just what I needed! Plus, it’s always fun to see her smiling face :)
And I think this will help get me going on my yoga goal – I’m still not sure if earlier in the day or later will work better for me most days, but I hope to try out some different times soon.
It felt so good to just stretch and breathe and twist.
After finishing my time with my mat, I came upstairs and got working on dinner.
As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program, I got a coupon for some Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry a few weeks ago.
I’m ready for a weekend, even though we’re supposed to have really cold one AND even though there’s only one college football game :( I am really sad that the regular season is over – I think all the bowl games will be good, but then it’s over for 8 months!
I guess there are more things to be upset about, right?
Lunch today was quick, thanks to easy-to-reheat leftovers.
I brought some leftover broccoli + creamy chicken cacciatore (the last of it) along with a clementine for lunch.
I don’t know why, but leftover pasta is the best!
Right before Nick came over to eat, I started putting together my grocery / meal list for this next week.
I have a few ideas that I didn’t get to make earlier this week, but then my mind just went blank! I looked at the Kroger sale sheet for this week and have a few more possibilities, but I’m going to have to finish my meal plan and grocery list tonight.
What do you do for meal planning / making grocery lists?
And what are you making next week? :) I need some more ideas!
