Happy Saturday bloggies! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful first 1/2 of your weekend…mine was super-productive. Sadly, the productivity did not include my training run. 😦 I’ve been bummed about it all day. The hubb and I had the alarm set to go, but my honey was feeling under the weather so we postponed our long run ’till tomorrow. I’m crossing my fingers that the ice they are predicting tonight will not happen so we won’t be deterred again, especially since the hubb is feeling much better tonight. 🙂
Breakfast: Instead of going for a run I made an indulgent breakfast, Eggnog French Toast with cranberry “ketchup”. Yummy! No butter or syrup, just cran ketchup and a sprinkle of powdered sugar.
This was easy, I just combined:
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup eggnog
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp vanilla
Whisk it all together, soak your bread in the mixture (I used whole wheat), and brown in a nonstick skillet until both sides are golden.
For those of you that would like the cranberry “ketchup” recipe, leave me a comment on this post *letting me know specifically that you want it* and I’ll email it to you. Its SO GOOD! You all will love it. Erin let me know that the recipe is straight from a cookbook so we can’t publish it because of copyright issues.
After breakfast I rushed off to a morning hair appointment then ran crazy errands all day. I think I visited nearly every single store in Charlottesville. The traffic and crowds were insane!!! I’m glad to have accomplished everything on my list today though so that I don’t have to go back out in the madness tomorrow…
Morning Snack: I grabbed this while standing in a check-out lane at Target. See what happens when you forget to pack your snacks…you wind up with overly-indulgent Chocolate Drizzled goodness. Its actually a tiny, one-portion bag…and I ate the whole thing.
Next time I’ll remember my larabar…
Lunch: I never expected my errands today to take 6+ hours, so come 2:30 I was STARVING! I stopped in my favorite gourmet specialty food store, Feast!, and grabbed a prepared sandwich. No picture, I inhaled it far too quickly. It consisted of local chevre, artichokes, arugula, sundried tomatoes and olive tapenade on a baguette. I assure you, it was tasty.
Afternoon Snack: When I FINALLY got home I grabbed a yogurt out of the fridge…I’m still in clean-out mode and want to finish all perishables before we leave town on Tuesday. I’m so very spoiled after discovering greek yogurt…this regular was way runnier than I like.
Dinner: We needed something quick and easy. The hubb ordered a pepperoni, onion and black olive pizza, of which I had two pieces minus the pepperoni and the crust. I also made a leftovers salad with napa cabbage, broccoli slaw, celery, hearts of palm, alfalfa sprouts, dried cranberries and light ranch dressing.
And a glass of cabernet.
Oh! While I was out and about today I found a few exciting things…
FINALLY! The holiday-flavor Clif Bars, PEANUT BUTTER COOKIE Larabars, and a Cashew Cookie Larabar!!! Yay! Now I feel like I’m part of the club! 🙂
The hubb and I have been busy this evening with Christmas prep as is typical these days. Here’s one of our activities…Homemade Marshmallows! They are going in gift boxes for friends and family. I’ll post more about them tomorrow when they are finished.
Have a fabulous Sunday!
