Sunday I made a double batch of baked Mac no cheese, just because I knew everyone would devour the leftovers. BS and I were chatting about how his Dad really isn’t a fan of Mac n cheese, and we’ve decided he’s wrong. And perhaps not human.
My sprouts are done and they are glorious! It made a TON, and my eldest is already stuffing wraps with them and the homemade hummus. Love to see them eat good and healthy stuff. To be honest, my eldest is the best at that 🙂
Last night was red beans and rice. Super easy recipe that’s literally from the Better Homes and Garden New Cook Book that I think my mom got in the 1960’s. I’ve adapted mine for the slow cooker and it is always perfect. This is the first time I used onion powder instead of onions though. My guy hates onions – but likes the flavor. And since SO many of my recipes are onion dependent, I’m working on tweaking some for future reference. I also used a new-to-me vegan sausage. I usually get Tofurkey, but they didn’t have any. And the Field Sausage flavors weren’t ones I wanted. So I got this, diced, pan fried, and then added to the crock about 30 minutes before serving. Dished over brown rice and a some cabbage (LOVE crunch – and need to add green foods to my meals).
Today was simple – coffee and banana for breakfast and Thai for lunch. Not hungry for dinner.
On a silly note, inadvertently my boyfriend and I have near-identical meal plans this week. Though I did burgers on Sunday and he’s doing them tomorrow – we both did red beans and rice yesterday, Taco Tuesday (of course), and even have Indian planned (for me Thursday, tomorrow is BBQ tofu, mushroom risotto, and salads).
Two runs since my last post. Contemplating going in the morning – but I’m not sure. Mornings and I are just starting to get along (ish), and I’m not sure I’m willing to push it….
I mean, it’s only been two days, so not TOO much could have gone on. Been spending the past two days catching up at work after being out of the office for the better part of 2 weeks. And school of course (I actually have class at 8pm tonight).
I wasn’t planning to stay up on Sunday for Game of Thrones – though I got hit with some insomnia and was up anyway. Oh well. I did watch it Monday though, so I’m caught up. Thank goodness my guy has cable! Kuma had fun snuggling me while watching.
So something new I noticed yesterday. I’m an AT&T subscriber for my cell phone, and this started. I’m a fan! I miss the days where the do-not-call-list actually worked. Saying “death to telemarketers” is way to dramatic, so here’s hoping they all find meaningful employment instead and stop being the bane of existence for the rest of us.
Otherwise, been a typical early week of work and school. Tomorrow I’m going to figure out how to use my pressure washer and depollenate my back deck and lawn furniture.
