Snow, Glorious Snow

Yesterday was the perfect day to stay all bundled up inside.  Even today is the perfect day for that! It’s blustery cold and snowing.  After my workout yesterday, which was not running, but an exercise DVD, I took a lovely and looonnggg hot shower. Then it was time to refuel with some coffee and yogurt! You can bet your hiney that this week I made sure to have some granola on hand!

  • 2% Fage Greek Yogurt
  • Homemade granola
  • Chocolate chips
  • And for fun, shredded coconut (unsweetened)

Along with smooth delicious coffee!  I’m looking for holiday mugs that don’t cost a fortune, any suggestions on where to look?  I want something festive and fun!

I snuggled up on the couch with the good blanket, which is a warm fuzzy blanket that is also referred to as The Blanket of Sleeping, because the minute Rocky touches it, he falls asleep.  I did some blog work and watched it snow and blow outside.

The birdies are still coming around for food though, so I try and make sure that I get some out there.  Thanks to the squirrels, food dwindles at a very quick pace.

Eventually Scott got up, and I’m pretty sure the telemarketer who called yesterday morning was to blame.  Seriously, can we take a day off?!  We even get calls at 9pm at night.  Not cool!  We chatted for a while and I headed into the kitchen.  I got things prepped for dinner, made some more cranberry sauce, and got started on Sunday Breakfast.

Yum! Drizzled with the usual toppings:

  • Butter
  • Yogurt
  • Maple Syrup
  • Fresh cranberry sauce

I totally went back in for a third pancake!  Fresh fruit was pineapple that ended up being horrible.  It wasn’t sweet or juicy or tender, it was so icky! I’m guessing they are out of season.  No more till summer.  Booo! I had an apple later because I needed some fruit in my system stat!

We braved the elements and got Rocky walked.  It was chilly so he had to wear his big boy jacket which he totally pranced around in showing off.  Silly fella!  After that we found ourselves with a few spare hours that we could spend gaming.

Joy!

A little more Uncharted 2 to round out the day.  After some phone calls to family, it was time to get some supper in our bellies.

Monster veggie burgers! I loaded them up too:

  • Chickpeas
  • Walnuts
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Oats

With various veggies and spices.  They were delicious and totally hit the spot! I think chickpeas make the best burgers.  There was:

  • Lettuce
  • Tomato
  • Red Onion
  • Irish Cheddar
  • BBQ Sauce

On top which made this one messy burger! Heaven! I love messy food.

On the side was baked sweet potato puffs!

We watched a touch of Harry Potter while we ate.

Dinner over and the kitchen cleaned up, we kicked it with an old movie.

We watched House of Wax (Vincent Price version) and sipped on this new wine.  It was a blush Vinho Verde and it was amazing! Crisp, bubbly, and dry.  Some blushes can be sweet and this was not at all. Such a fun wine!

I nibbled on some mint M&Ms and then crashed out in bed by 10:30. I was exhausted do to two nights in a row of crappy sleep.

How was your weekend friends? Anything exciting happen?  Are you decorated for the holidays?

  1. I didn’t have any rest between returning from the honeymoon and starting work again so I used this past weekend to chill.

    I didn’t do much. And it was bliss. :)

    BTW – have you ever posted a recipe for your veggie burgers? They look good!

  2. sounds like a great Sunday :)

    We hung around the house since it was snowing and freezing outside. No decorating for us – we’re moving in less than a month!!!

    I too found your website through Fage on FB, and really enjoyed reading your latest post. Your veggie burger looks divine! I’ve never tried making my own, but you’re inspiring me to give it a try. Are you vegetarian?

    A quick glance through your site and I now see you aren’t vegetarian, although it sounds as though you cook lots of veg-friendly dishes. You’re a true omnivore! Huzzah!
