Hello, everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!
Now it’s time to move on to CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My parents and in-laws all ready have their trees and lights up. GF Guy and I don’t have any decorations of our own. This will be our first Christmas together with a home of our own. Hopefully, we will be able to pick up a few decorations tomorrow. For now, I am settling for a Home Sweet Home Yankee Christmas Candle and a mug of Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane Tea.
I spent the entire day deep cleaning the apartment. (By deep cleaning, I mean I took the stove apart and scoured the various components, scrubbed the floor… you get the picture) The apartment has been sorely neglected for the past few weeks. It feels good to have it back in proper order. All that cleaning left little time for kitchen experimentation.
My dinners the past 2 nights have been more “Me Meals”.
1) Spiralized Zucchini topped with steamed Brussels Sprouts, Asparagus, Broccoli, Sauteed Crimini Mushrooms, Bove’s Marinara Sauce (my FAVORITE pasta sauce EVER!), and Nutritional Yeast.
2) Half a baked New Jersey White Sweet Potato, steamed Brussels Sprouts, Carrots, Yellow Squash, diced Tomato, and diced Avocado. I also ate a little leftover turkey. My body was asking for the protein.
Here is what I am working on at the moment:
Crockpot Homemade Turkey Stock
I also have plans for the leftover Turkey. However, these plans will have to wait until Tuesday. Tomorrow, GF Guy and I have a day off together. We plan on making a “date day” of it! I am so excited!!! I just hope I feel okay. I don’t know whats wrong with me. I’ve been having dizzy spells and feelings of extreme dehydration for the past month. First, I blamed it on an electrolyte imbalance. Then, it was attributed to a flu. Now, there are no excuses left. Sigh… I’ll just have to break down and go see a doctor….
But enough unpleasantness! Let’s focus on the fact that Christmas is coming! I already have GF Guy’s gift and am SUPER excited about it! I would tell you all what it is, but GF Guy reads my blog! You will have to wait until Christmas to find out, just like him!
Are your Christmas decorations already up? When do you start decorating?
