Big + Mini Purchases = Combat the Sunday Blues

Another Sunday…

Another day of football and delicious snacks!

Sometimes I wonder what it is that I do with myself on Sunday’s when it’s not football season? ;)

Today’s football festivities brought Jay and I over to my parents’ house for some good laughs and good eats. Of course, they had the Jets gear out and ready to go!

HOORAYYYY for a Jets win today!! :-D

Mom made one of my favorite “snackies” of hers today…Garbage Bread!

I go NUTS over the peppers + onions + sausage combo! She also makes a pretty mean pepperoni bread, but I’m pretty partial to my peppers and onions. I had to restrain myself from dominating the entire bread. :oops:

Luckily, I knew there was some delicious dessert waiting to be had…

My Apple Crisp!! I’m still shocked that I never ended up breaking into it yesterday after baking it…but it was soooo well worth the wait!

I topped off each of our portions with a little slow-churned french vanilla ice cream + a drizzling of caramel. My spoon may or may not have accidentally fallen back into the pan once or twice more after eating my portion…I cannot tell a lie. ;)

I’m going to have the recipe coming your way tomorrow, I promise! :)

After enjoying a good few hours with my parents, Jay and I set out on a mission, which I must say, was accomplished rather smoothly and I am beyond excited…

WE FINALLY BOUGHT A TREADMILL!!!

We’re going to pick it up tomorrow, and I can.not.wait. It will be so nice to be able to get a run in in the morning now (since, a- I don’t like to run outside when it’s cold, and b- I don’t like to run outside when it’s dark). WOO HOO!!

So I guess between our new big purchase, and my mini purchase here…

I’d say I’ve done a pretty good job of battling the Sunday Blues.

Time to go relax with some Real Simple and my boys…hope you all had a GREAT weekend!!

I’ll Order the Omelet, Please

Can you believe that I have been up since 6:30 this morning?? :shock:

And that’s without an alarm!

I mean, I know we got our extra hour of sleep last night and all, but waking up that early, without an alarm, is practically unheard of for me! So rather than attempting to force myself back to sleep, I rolled out of bed and took advantage of the early morning hours by catching up on some housework and paying some bills. I was quite productive, and all before 8am. ;)

After brewing up some coffee and lounging on the couch with my mug-o-joe and catching up on some magazine reading, the morning got even BETTER when hubby asked if I’d like him to cook breakfast…

Seriously? Who kidnapped my husband and sent you here??

;)

Actually, breakfast is the one thing thing that Jay doesn’t mind cooking…especially omelets. He is one heck of an omelet-maker! I think he must secretly be watching me when I prep in the kitchen, because I was rather impressed with I saw his prep station:

Who knew?!? :)

I “ordered” a 1 egg + 2 egg white veggie omelet, complete with a side of whole wheat toast.

IMG_6140

The toast was from the loaf that I picked up yesterday at the Farmer’s Market. It’s delish with a little raspberry jam. :-P

IMG_6141

My omelet included a mix of green peppers, onions, and tomatoes, along with a little provolone cheese.

IMG_6142

One advantage to enjoying omelets at home is that you get to control the amount of cheese! I really do enjoy having cheese in my omelets, but I never order it when I go out. There’s something about the 37 slices worth that they usually seem to put in at restaurants that turns my stomach. BLEH! :shock:

But not today! This baby was perfection. Thanks, Jay! :-D

Since hubby cooked up a delicious breakfast, I offered to take care of the clean up. Nice idea, right?

Wrong…

IMG_6144

Grrrrrr!! My damn porcelain sink! I can’t tell you how many dishes I’ve broken in this thing. I was not a happy camper…

but luckily I had this guy right around the corner that quickly lifted my spirits. :)

Cody wanted me to tell you all that he says “Good Meowwworning” and that he hopes you have a fantastic Sunday!

Questions for the Day:

Do you ever feel a difference with Daylight Savings Time?

What you rather do: The cooking or the cleaning? ;)
