Hey hey party people! I’m so glad you guys are excited about my Holiday Gift Giveaway. I love reading all of your comments about who you’d like to give one to…you guys are so thoughtful! Probably a whole lot more thoughtful than me; I think I’m in the group of you all who would like to keep it for yourself. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, of course! Christina’s work is too amazing to pass up.
I figured I’d fill ya in on lunch since I never got a chance to earlier. I’m warning you – today’s combo is a little random, thanks to my need to clear out as much space as possible in the fridge.
I used up the rest of last week’s roasted veggies, added some carrots, grape tomatoes, crabmeat, and a wedge of The Laughing Cow Light Swiss Cheese, and threw it all in the microwave for about 2 minutes. Like I said, the flavor combos were a little random, but the cheesy, creamy factor was a win…and I managed to clear out some space, which was my main goal.
So anyways, that whole reason for wanting to make some room in the fridge…
Yes folks, the Thanksgiving grocery shop took place this morning and our fridge and countertops are packed. It’s a good thing that Thanksgiving only comes once a year because man, it really adds up!
Then again, I felt much better when Jay estimated today’s bill to be around $225 and I was able to happily tell him it was closer to $100. His response? “That’s awesome, but I guess I’m not surprised. You probably had loads of coupons and found really good deals.”
Damn right I did, hubby.
I also made sure to stock up on the butter (hello, 2 for $5.00 – awesome deal) because ya know you can’t have Thanksgiving without it! Actually, now that I’m thinking of it, I should probably go back and load up some more – Christmas cookie baking is right around the corner, folks!
So since my main refrigerator goal for today was to clear out the fridge as much as possible, that left tonight’s dinner selection easy peasy: leftovers from Saturday night’s dinner.
Jay and I both still had a generous amount of leftovers, so we enjoyed those AND cleared out lots of space by getting rid of the two big Styrofoam containers.
Good news is that tonight’s leftovers tasted 10x more yummy than they did on Saturday. I blame it on the kettle corn. Bad news is that I’m pretty sure I forgot to take my Nexium this morning. Oooof.
Even still, Jay and I quickly found ourselves diving into dessert right after dinner…
A couple of days ago, I received a fun little package from Dylan’s Candy Bar.
I was given the opportunity to sample an item out of their Holiday Gift Guide, and as soon as I saw the Choc-A-Lot Gourmet Chocolate Pretzels, I knew there was no question on what I wanted to try.
The description said that the package contained 12 assorted gourmet Belgian chocolate pretzels covered with M&M’s, nonpareils, toffee bits, and white chocolate stripes. I was a little disappointed, however, when I opened up my box and only saw 10 pretzels. Bummer.
Luckily, the flavor of these pretzels were absolutely delicious, with the toffee bits one being my favorite. Man oh man were they good!
Now I just wonder where my other two pretzels are?
It’s Monday night, so you know what that means: cozies, couch, and How I Met Your Mother!
