Snow Day!Posted: January 30, 2010
Well hello there from the great white Baltimore!
We have made a few new friends today due to the lack of food.
Mr. and Mrs. C were among the many! Sissy is in heaven and even thought she could somehow make it through the glass window and get one. Yes, she may not be the brightest, but we love her.
So backing up to yesterday…
Salad of spinach, carrots, celery, tomatoes, avocado and balsamic with a big hunk of herb beer bread.
I didn’t have my snack until I got home, but a glass of wine joined it 🙂
Last night Nick and I couldn’t figure out what to do. I had to be at BARCS at 8:30 this morning for training, playing with kitties and escorting, so I didn’t want to make it a late night. We settled on Disc One of Mad Men and Wegman’s PYO (pick your own) dinners.
My dinner included:
Multigrain bagel with flax (Wegman’s has amazing bagels) toasted with almond butter and jelly. I also had a salad of mixed green, steamed broccoli, red peppers, tomatoes and a white bean pesto mix. I also had a store made chocolate dipped chocolate chip cookie.
I had to celebrate cookie Friday!
Mad Men was interesting. I mostly spent my time thinking about how my Dad grew up in the time this was going on and my grandfather worked! I think I am more interested in the history rather than the actual plot lines.
I was up early this morning to get into the city of training, and I was really close to just going with a bowl of cereal. I saved myself and had a lovely batch of french toast!
I dipped two pieces of Quinoa bread in 1 egg, skim, flax, cinnamon and almond extra (best part). I topped my toast with a heated mash of black berries and maple syrup. I also had some kefir with chia seeds, banana and almond butter.
This was delicious!
At BARCS today I adopted out my first cat! It was great, but no one else wanted to look at cats so I called 4 hours my time for the day. I finally got home around 1:00pm after deal with snow traffic, threw my clothes in the washer (Sissy cannot get sick from the other cats) and me in the shower.
I was more than ready for lunch!
Part 1: I made a little savory bread pudding with my leftover beer herb bread! I mixed together about 2 slices of bread with 1 egg, skim, hot sauce and poured 1/2 into my cute ramekin. Then I had a layer of spinach and tomato sauce. I finished it off the the rest of the bread and 2 pieces of Cabot cheddar. I cooked it in the mirco for one min to make sure the egg cooked then transferred it to a 425 toaster oven and cooked it for 10min.
For my dessert/lunch part two I had a delicious pear. I heated a pear with cinnamon for 1:30 then topped it with vanilla almond crunch granola. Wow this tasted just like a pear crisp! Next time; bowl and smaller pieces of pear.
Delicious DIFFERENT lunch. I always feel like I have to make my lunches at home different from anything I could bring to work.
Alright, I need to get to the cleaning I have been putting off all day and check out what the weather is going to do tonight.
Stay safe in the snow!
