Goodies For The Sick One

by Courtney on October 28, 2010

I’m feeling rather lazy this evening…anyone else with me??

I’m gonna try to make tonight’s post a quick one, since I still have some dishes to wash, some laundry to do, and a sick hubby to take care of. Yes, poor hubby has come down with a crappy cold. He’s trying to blame it on me, but I told him no way. ;)

After work today, I decided it felt like more of a “mall day” rather than a “gym day.” So I actually skipped the gym, was totally ok with it, and did a little damage at the mall. I had an Old Navy coupon that expired today…couldn’t let that go to waste! While I was at the mall, I also picked up a little bag-o-goodies for “the sick one” to try to cheer him up.


I think it helped. :) (Hopefully he’ll share with me…most of his favorites are my favorites too!) :shock:


Today’s breakfast probably looks similar to Tuesday’s:


2 slices of cinnamon swirl bread, topped with some White Chocolate Wonderful PB, pumpkin butter, & banana slices.


Forgive me for the lack of variety, but so far I’m the only one tackling this loaf of Trader Joe’s cinnamon raisin swirl bread, and that just cannot go to waste!

I also enjoyed some Pumpkin Spice coffee…x2. ;)




Leftover soup is the best!


To go along with my leftover Minestrone Soup, I had an amazingly yummy, cheese-filed wrap. I simply spread one wedge of The Laughing Cow Light Mozzarella Sun-Dried Tomato & Basil cheese inside of a Tomato Basil LaTortilla Factory wrap. Then, since I apparently was feelin’ a little “cheesy,” I added another thin slice of some reduced-fat provolone. Total yum. :-P



Can’t forget about the delish “golden delish” apple! ;)


Immediately upon entering the mall this afternoon, I passed by a Starbucks, and thoughts of Pumpkin Spice Lattes started dancing around like sugarplums in my head. Getting one was absolutely necessary.


So I sipped it while browsing around through Kirklands. They were having some awesome sales…I think I may need to head back this weekend! :shock:


Suuuuuuper lazy tonight…


I attempted to make some turkey + provolone rolls, however, the turkey that we have (while totally delicious) is not exactly of “rolling quality.”


So they ended up being a little more like “stacks,” which I also filled with a little honey mustard.


I ended up using a lot more turkey than I really needed…bad gauge on that one! I probably ate about 3/4 of the turkey on the plate…but I did eat ALL of this guy!


me crazy, but does this sweet tater not look a little like a pumpkin???

Just like last night, I topped it with a little butter, cinnamon, & pumpkin butter. It was just as good the second time around. :)

And now, I definitely foresee some pumpkin chip cookies on my radar!

Question for the Evening:

What makes you feel better when you’re sick?

Ok, so I just tried the white chocolate wonderful peanut butter… and ate in the entire jar in like… 5 days?! It’s the best!

I am so cranky when I’m sick… so I sleep! And chug liquids…

Movies, blankets and a foot massage make me feel better-my poor husband! Good for you to skip the gym and go to the mall….I am thinking I might have to try that one!

I absolutely, positively need crappy tv to feel better :) I dont really watch much of it when I’m alive and kicking so recoop time gets lots of reruns and – of course – soup!

Laying on the couch reading trashy magazines, watching the cooking channel and lots of sleep.

Yeah for coupons! I need to try pumpkin butter on my sweet potato!

Going shopping can be a total workout – you’re lifting heavy bags, speeding around to catch things on sale, fighting off other sho-, hahaha..

I’m sorry your hubs isn’t feeling well! When I’m sick I try to drink lots of fluids. I generally end up sulking on the couch with 3520624 movies and my kitten.

It’s nice that you’re taking care of the hubby! And that sweet potato looks delish–it’s been far too long since I’ve eaten one!
