Productivity was the name of the game today!
After mailing out my cookies this morning and making a few other quick pit stops, I came home and got right to work…on studying, that is.
I finished the entire book a couple of weeks ago and have since been spending my time going back and re-examining the material that had been covered a while ago. I was so in the zone that I didn’t end up breaking for lunch until about 1:30.
Oddly enough, I wasn’t really that hungry (which, indeed, is very odd) so I put together a quick yogurt bowl.
I slowly ate through today’s lunch while watching a bunch of my NASM videos and I was totally thrilled with the fact that I got in a solid 4 hours of studying today with
no minimal Cody interruptions, and total peace and quiet.
I also managed to sneak in a couple handfuls of Christmas themed Pretzel M&M’s.
I’m such a sucker for the themed ones. I just can’t resist ‘em!
When Jay got home from work a little after 5:00, I deemed my study time over for the day and got to work on putting something together for dinner. We were both pretty hungry, we wanted something quick, but we really didn’t feel like more Thanksgiving leftovers. Then, it hit me…
Chili-topped sweet potatoes. Oh god, yes. I can’t believe I haven’t done this sooner. I mean, seriously…this dinner is legit. Not only is it delicious, but it’s super filling, too.
I topped my baked sweet potato (which I prepared our favorite way) with about half of a can of Trader Joe’s Turkey Chili with Beans.
On the side we had some (more) leftover cornbread and shared a bag of steamed mixed veggies.
Considering the fact that tonight’s combo received two thumbs up from Jay too, you can bet your bottom dollar that you’ll be seeing this again. I just have to get myself over to TJ’s for some more of that chili.
I think I’m sensing a Trader Joe’s road trip…who wants in?
Questions for the Evening:
What are your favorite baked potato toppings? Ever tried chili?
Do you ever fall victim to the holiday-themed foods like me? (i.e., Christmas Oreos, m&m’s, etc…)
