Breezy and Chilly

I did not get to watch Martha and Snoop last night because I ended up needing to record the later showing because two other things were recording. Instead I watched part of the Pens game and part of Dancing with the Stars (guilty pleasure and I adore it.) I’ll be honest, I feel a little empty missing Martha and Snoop and I’m not sure when I’ll get to watch the episode (sob). Brace yourselves because it’s holiday time and while I still plan on eating well and working out, I will be indulging in some fun food items.  Oh, I will fully share that with you but buckle up because I love the holidays and all the food that goes with it. Snacks were consumed last night, I had a small plate of ham, some Spanish cheeses from a TJ’s little variety pack, and some carrots with jalapeno and artichoke dip.  I also had some bourbon because Thanksgiving week.  That will be a theme so just roll with it. Ham, Cheese, Carrots, Dip Dessert was three mini dark chocolate peanut butter cups from TJ’s. Up this morning to an overcast, chilly, and windy day.  I went for a run before hitting the gym. Yogurt Bowl, Coffee Breakfast was a small yogurt bowl with:

  • 2% Fage
  • Homemade Granola
  • Chocolate Chips

Frothy coffee with a splash of So Delicious Nog (I’ll be talking more about this on Saturday). I did some chores around the house and worked on some Thanksgiving prep.  After the house was clean, it was time for lunch and I kept things easy. Brat, Green beans Green beans and a jalapeno cheddar brat by Continental Sausage (I love this sausage so much!).  I also made a smoothie but forgot to grab a pic because I was chatting with my mom. It had:

  • Water
  • Collagen Peptides
  • Spinach
  • Frozen Bananas
  • Frozen Blueberries

Once lunch was over and I was done chatting with my mom, and finished up the laundry, it was time to hit the couch with Scott to play the latest Gears of War game.  I was reading some previous Daily Eats posts of mine from 2009 and we were playing Gears of War 2 around this time!  Weird. I guess we like to play Gears during Thanksgiving week. We played for a bit and then it was time for dinner.  I heated up some leftover beef and veggie soup that I made on Sunday in the slow cooker. Beef veggie soup I used leftover beef roast, potatoes, carrots, cabbage, and diced tomatoes with a beef stock base.  It made for the perfect dinner on this chilly and windy day! Now it’s time to finish up Dancing with the Stars and kick back with a splash of red wine.  Hooray Holidays!
