I’ve only eaten two of those cranberry apple cookies so far today, so I’m pretty darn impressed. Especially considering the fact that were sitting a mere five feet away from me all day long (because there’s no way I could keep the whole batch at home!). Luckily, everyone seemed to like ‘em so I’m a happy
Starting with breakfast, today has actually been one of those days where everything I eat is just awesome. You know what I mean? I’m sure there’s days where I could eat exactly everything I’m about to show you and just think of it as ‘meh.’ But it all tasted wonderful today, so let me fill ya’ll in.
This morning, I prepped myself a nice big salad, filled with lots of goodies.
Romaine, cukes, grape tomatoes, baby carrots, roasted broccoli and cauliflower, goat cheese, and 2 leftover slices of turkey bacon from last night’s dinner. Nothing goes to waste, my friends. Nothing goes to waste.
I also enjoyed a golden delicious apple (my favorite) as well as som Pretzel Crisps. Last week when I was at the Christmas Tree Shop, I noticed that they had bags of them on sale for only $1.99, and seeing as though they’re usually $3.00+ at the grocery store, I had to snag some. I went with the “everything” flavor which is great.
After I got off of work tonight, I actually booked myself an amazing deep tissue massage. Now when I say amazing, I am really not kidding. The only kind of massage I’ve ever gotten is the typical Swedish massage, but the deep tissue felt great and hurt oh-so-good. I’m sure I’ll feel it tomorrow, but I don’t care. I needed it in a bad way!
Since I knew I probably wouldn’t be getting home until a little later, Jay and I decided ahead of time to use up the rest of our Balsamic Chicken leftovers from Sunday for tonight’s dinner.
We used some LaTortilla Factory wraps and filled them each with a wedge of The Laughing Cow Light Swiss Cheese and boatloads of balsamic chicken, tomatoes, and onions. They were a little messy, but worth every last dribble.
On the side, I reheated some more of my roasted veggies,
and ate the rest of my chicken leftovers plain since there was no way they were all fitting into that wrap without it ending up in my lap.
I love leftovers that are versatile enough to be used up in an entirely different way. So yummy!
I’d be naïve to say that another cookie (or two, who am I kidding – I did leave about half a dozen here) will end up being consumed this evening, so you can bank on that happening while I’m watching tonight’s episode of New Girl with my boys.
Question for the Evening:
Have you ever treated yourself to a massage? What type was it? Did you love it?
