Spending four hours of my Sunday doing all of the grading the I procrastinated doing during the week = total bummer. Ughh. One of these days I’ll learn!
At least I was able to break up the work with some football & a couple trick-or-treaters. And I must say, I was quite proud of the fact that I only stole one piece of candy from the candy bowl!
Then a little while later, I figured hey, a little wine never hurts either…
Oh yeah, and dinner’s a pretty good way to break up the work too.
Jay and I decided a quick and simple dinner was in order, so we cooked up the package of ravioli that I got last weekend at Trader Joe’s.
I topped my ravioli off with some sautéed onions and broccoli (which were generously coated in some Garlic Gold seasoning), marinara sauce, and some fat-free Mediterranean feta crumbles.
To be perfectly honest, I wasn’t a huge fan of the ravioli. I didn’t really love the flavor of them…must have been the mushrooms? Luckily, I had cooked up a boat-load of broccoli, so I didn’t feel deprived.
But even though I wasn’t huge fan of the ravioli, here’s a couple things I am a fan of:
Watching Cody fall asleep in the funniest positions EVER.
AND, the fact that I have this huge bowl of candy sitting in my house…
with no more trick-or-treaters in sight.
Yeah…hubby was nervous we wouldn’t have enough candy after the 4th trick-or-treater came, so he went out to get some more.
That was about 2 hours ago, and we haven’t seen one since. Looks like it’s gonna be time to get creative in the kitchen!!
Question for the Evening:
What do you do with your leftover Halloween candy?
