I know today would typically be a WIAW post, but since I haven’t really photographed or tracked all of my eats in one day in a while now, today’s post is going to be a bit different. Instead, I figured I’d share some of the things that I’ve been enjoying so far over the past couple of days.
Starting with THIS.
Oh my. Last night, we had our pals Brian & Mal over for dinner and Mal brought another one of her delicious desserts. Seriously…she’s incredible with this stuff. That beauty you see up there was a combination of crushed (mint) Oreos, a creamy minty frosting layer, topped with some creamy, minty chocolate. Oh. Em. Gee. (I don’t know what recipe she used, but I found this one that looked similar)
We all joked afterwards that we felt like we didn’t even need to brush our teeth with the amount of mint that was freshening up our mouths.
Don’t worry…I still brushed my teeth.
For dinner, I whipped up another batch of my Chicken Pot Pie Soup, which was just as tasty as I remembered it being the last time.
It’s so easy too. You really need to try it. Trust me.
For breakfasts, I’ve been back on the peanut butter cookie dough oatmeal kick.
Thank you, Julie, for fueling this obsession for me.
As for lunches, well they’re always a bit all over the place. But on Monday, I made myself a pretty sweet turkey and provolone sandwich…and as you can see, most definitely did not skimp out on the turkey. Mmmmhmmm.
Monday night Jay also took care of dinner (god, I love him) and made us a fabulous barbecue chicken pizza.
So yeah…there’s some of the goods that have been getting consumed over here these days. Needless to say, we haven’t been going hungry.
But TODAY you guys? Oh, today. I’ve been waiting for this day for almost a month. This morning, I slept in until 7:00am, fed Lucas and got him ready for the day, and then? He went off with daddy to get dropped off at daycare. Me? I have the entire day to myself.
I felt guilty for about 5 seconds when I decided I still wanted to send Lucas to daycare on my day off, but snapped out of that rather quickly because I just really need today. As a human being. It’s actually the first time since he’s been born that I will be having the whole day to myself (work doesn’t count, that’s not for myself) and while I’ll be more than ready to pick him up later this afternoon, I’m ready for some ME time.
So what am I doing? Well, as soon as I hit publish here, I’m out the door for a morning massage (ohhh, so excited!), and then I’m coming back home where I can do anything I want, as loud as I want. Most likely a workout, taking down the fall decorations, putting up the Christmas ones, maybe doing a little baking…maybe a nap?!? Who knows. The possibilities are endless!
But here I am running late, so it’s about time I say sayonara!
