Ugly Christmas Sweater Party

8 Dec

 I attended the Yelp Elite Ugly Christmas Sweater Party last night and it was a super fabulous time! When I heard about the event back in November, I got off my butt and went to Value Village to find an ugly sweater. I could’ve asked my mom for an ugly sweater but then she would ask what it was for and I didn’t want to hurt her feelings. So I found an ugly Christmas sweater…..and an ugly Christmas moo moo.

I heart any soiree that requires drinking bracelets. Makes me feel like a young pup again!

The event was at Dressler’s and had tasty libations from sponsors New Belgium, Country Vintner & Palm Bay International plus a few complimentary appetizers like hot sausage and spinach and artichoke dip to nosh on while socializing.

 And some people wore the same sweaters!

Or as I like to call it a Christmas miracle!

Yours truly won 1st place in the Women’s Tacky Sweater Contest and won a nice swag bag 

Such a fabulous time, I can’t wait to attend another Ugly Christmas Sweater party and find something even tackier!

 And the winner of the Einstein’s Free Bagel coupons …..

I used to eat at Einsteins whenever I could… which wasn’t nearly as often as I wanted b/c they never seem to be close to me. Now there is one up the street and I haven’t visited because I’m a vegan now… figures. I know that, obviously, the schmear isn’t vegan… I wonder if the bagels are… oh cool, just looked up the ingredients, many of them are milk & egg free.

Favorite Christmas song… “Carol of the bells”, both with words or just instrumental.

I also like one (I don’t know what it’s called)… that’s instrumental also, and there are sounds of horses hooves and the cracking of a whip at specific spots in the song.

Least favorite… While I’d have to agree with the hippopatmus song being a non-fav… I really can’t stand “All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth”. Ugh.

Congrats Nic! Please email me your address so I can send them out to you 🙂 

 Thanks all for participating!!

Fun

6 Nov

So….it’s been an interesting week. The “fun” started on Wednesday when I got a flat tire on the way home from work….in the rain….with no AAA…..with barely any battery left on my cell phone. I frantically called one of my friends who lives near the gas station I was stuck at  and she came right over and dialed AAA for me. While waiting on them, we went to The Melting Pot to get a glass on wine so that made the whole ordeal go a little smoother but in the back on my head I was thinking about the extra expenses such as a new tire or two that I would soon be dealing with. Oh. I didn’t mention how work screwed up my paycheck last week due to me changing jobs did I? Yeah, my official start date was 10/18 but human resources didn’t have it until 11/1 so the check I received on 11/1 was still my old rate and I have to wait for a separate check to come with the difference plus a few days missed pay.That’s supposed to be in my checking account on Monday. We can view our paychecks three days in advance online and it’s not showing up right now so I’m a bit skeptical about it being in there. All I know is I can’ really roll with less than $90 in my checking account for over a week. That being said, I will be living ghetto this next week. I am using any Groupon I have to get some free meals, coupons and will be cooking a bunch. I think I may have a free sub at Harris Teeter as well so that will be two free meals for me. It just sucks feeling like I can’t due anything due to lack of money, I hate that feeling so much. If only I didn’t have the little thing called rent or mortgage getting in my way each month. I would love to be able to live free from that for a year and save it so I can feel like I have a solid savings.

When I got home after the flat tire situation, I wanted pizza. And not homemade or Papa Johns, I wanted the authentic stuff. I’ve heard great things about Luigi’s Pizza, a NY style pizza joint throughout Charlotte. When I was in NYC this summer, I never got a slice of pizza so the time was finally right to try NY style pizza….even if I am in Charlotte. This place is right near me but I’ve never stopped there because any time I drive by it, I can’t see inside and that kinda skeeves me out. Feeling great from the wine, I went over to Luigi’s and ordered a small pepperoni pizza to go.

That is what I’m talking about!! When I opened the box I couldn’t believe that was a small pizza but I was loving what was in front of me. It was huge for just one person so there was guaranteed to last me throughout the week! My only gripe was that it was *eek* $14. I never pay that much for a pizza and don’t remember pizza being that much but I kept repeating to myself that I was supporting a local business and it would last more than one meal so that made me feel better. The pizza was absolutely wonderful cheesy yummy deliciousness. When I took a bite, it melted right in my mouth and the sauce was traditional but with more oregano than anything. It was just the right amount of grease but not swimming it in but visible and I had to fold it in half to eat most of it and that’s exactly what I was looking for. I added some grated parm onto my slices and kept singing “Me So Parmy” to “Me So Horny”. That was Wednesday and that’s still in my head.

The next night I met up with some friends at Loco Lime. I say I could eat Mexican any day of the week but I really was feeling sushi that night so was in a bit of a toss-up. Once the chips and salsa came, everything was right in the world. The $2.50 Dos Equis didn’t hurt either (I didn’t know they had an Amber? I loved it!) One of my friends ordered the guacamole and said it was the best in Charlotte. It was good but not as good as Vida, which was smoother and creamier. Regardless, if it has avocado and sour cream in it, I’m going to eat it. I’m equal opportunity like that. I got the combination plate of barbaqoa tostada and flautas but by the time it rolled around, I was a bit full. I had the tostado and some of the rice and beans and got the rest to go. The tostado was interesting–it was served with a hard boiled egg on top along with avocado slices. It was good, I just wasn’t expecting to see a hard boiled egg. The barbaqoa was delicious and tender and when I tried the flautas they were crispy and tasty as well.

My friend ordered the Tres Leches Cake for dessert and I didn’t want to be rude and not have a bite. It was so cute and so tasty! We somehow got to eating it with our arms intertwined. I remember thinking of the idea but don’t know what brought it about and thought it was the funniest thing in the world….again $2.50 beers.

The leftovers were super the day after

I tried to make chili last night but it was a huge fail. Until this past year, I’ve only made chili in the crockpot but lately by the time I want it, it’s too late to put it in the crock so I’ve just been making on the stovetop. One of my co-workers had a surplus of peppers and gave me a huge bag to take home with me so figured I could use the variety of the peppers in the chili

I was getting excited about the chili with the scent of all the different peppers. But then the evil can opener made an appearance. I will buy a can opener and it’s fine but then it turns racist whenever I want to open a can of black beans and won’t open it. Then from there, it won’t open anything—wtf?? Seeing I wanted to add beans, tomato paste and diced tomatoes, this was no bueno. I kept getting a small opening in the can then repeat about 10 or 11 times then forced open the top with a knife. I was a bit frustrated. I wasn’t even going to eat the chili that night but wanted to use the peppers before they went bad. I bought a new can opener today so let’s cross our fingers and hope it’s all about the love.

I don’t know if I didn’t add enough stock or the setting was high but it was not looking good by the time it was done. I wouldn’t call it so much as chili but as chili dip. I put some of it into small containers for this week but think I will be scooping it up with pita chips or something instead of eating it soup like.

I was up at 6A to go get my tires checked out and was back by 9A. It was around 40 something and it felt super wonderful. I love this season so much but feel like we aren’t really going to get a fall and will have a few nice days then jump right into winter. It was sunny out though which with my Florida mentality, think that whenever it’s sunny, it’s warm which I really need to stop that school of thought. I headed to Freedom Park to go for a run/walk on the greenway. I usually go walk around the lake at Freedom Park but wanted to check out the greenway there. The greenway goes along a little stream next to the hospital and has a gorgeous view of the skyline. I walked but got some running in there also but the thing I loved the most was no one was out. I maybe passed by 5 or 6 people which was a breath of fresh air since the greenway by my old apartment consisted mostly of people with their out of control minions. I will definitely be going back for a run or a nice stroll soon.

Feeling good after my cookie success last week, I picked up a box of Sun Maid Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Mix at the supermarket this morning. It was only $1.50 and I had no plans tonight so why not?

 

Mmmmmmm….chewy and delicious.

Besides that, work has been a killer. And I’m still in training so wtf?? The last four years, I was in a set process with my job and sad to say, really didn’t use my brain too often. I had a set process every day and my work was very redundant so I’m not used to thinking anymore much less using analytical skills. The position I took it going to be a lot more work and they are changing their current process so current and new associates are all learning something new. I am just curious on how we are going to manag the amount of work we are getting. I’ve heard the current team is overwhelmed so we are there to take some of the work off of their hands but our group is supposed to get another 15,000 accounts within the next few months. Multi tasking is one of my biggest strengths so I should be fine with it but still, I get worried. Good news is that I got all the vacation I requested off. I am taking Monday off since I had an extra day to use then time off for my birthday in December (going to NYC!), time around Chrismtas (going to FL) and for New Years Eve.

 Fall back!

Da Bears

11 Oct

I’ve been in Charlotte for a little over four years but haven’t developed any loyalty to the teams here. I’ve tried–been to games, even bought a Panthers jersey to show my support and such but when it comes down to it-the teams here suck. The Panthers are 0-5 this season which is just pitiful and I don’t even consider the Bobcats to be a real NBA team. Which then leads me to thinking what is with the city of Charlotte and their obsession with cats? Panthers? Bobcats? CATS—the public transportation system? I guess Charlotte is pussy whipped.

One of my co-workers was selling his Panthers tickets for yesterdays game and asked if I knew of anyone who was interested. I asked him who they were playing and he answered with “The Bears”. I started freaking out right there since the Bears are my favorite NFL team. I was born and raised 30 minutes from Chicago so growing up, I rooted for all things Chicago. I remember playing the VHS of “The Super Bowl Shuffle” over and over again at home (sadly that is from 1985 and I don’t like dating myself).

I asked one of my friends if she was up for going although she is a Patriots fan and she said yes so with tickets in hand we were ready to go! And check out the seats! I texted my co-worker when we got there with “OMG these seats are amazing!” and told him to keep me in mind if he ever needs to get rid of them again.

Oh, I didn’t mention how it was 87 degrees did I? And yes, it’s October so a big WTF is in store. When I think of football, I think of cooler weather and layering it up but not at this game. We were shaded for the first half but then Mr. Sun decided to make an appearance right after the half and it was just miserable.

The Bears scored within the first two minutes—woo hoo! I can honestly say, I think I saw more Bears fans than Panthers fans. There was orange everywhere. And I am gonna put this out there, the male Bears fans were hotter than Panthers fans. Just saying, in my opinion men from north of the Mason Dixon line are hotter and have better dental hygiene.

So…….almost the end of the first quarter

And the third quarter….really Panthers really?

We left at the beginning of the fourth quarter since we had a feeling there wouldn’t be a lot going on after that. And we were right Bears won 23-6! Another win for them, another loss for the Panthers. Boo hoo.

I did get some nachos though so I was a happy gal.

Afterwards, I went home and took a much-needed long nap (five beers will do that to you) and found it was only appropriate to celebrate the Bears win  by having leftover chicken pad thai in a Bears bowl.

I also started a new book—this chick is kind of a tamer Chelsea Handler but funny nonetheless. I recommend so far!

And today….well today is fabulous since I have off. I love having Columbus Day off since no one else really does and I feel like I am a normal person out living and having fun. What’s not fun is when my Internet connection is so horrendously slow and I have to go to Panera to get a good connection. But it’s all good because they have free refills and now they have a My Panera rewards program. I don’t go to Panera too often because I find their food to be dull and overpriced but I do dig their coffee and free wi fi. Ok, I also the dig the pastries but it’s been forever and a day since I’ve have one from here. But I love any place that offers either punch cards or reward programs so Panera is ok in my book. Who knows what else the rest of the day will bring?

So the question for you all is….working or lounging today?

Quarter End

30 Sep

Yay my last quarter end I will have to go through again is over. Well, last one on my side at least. And in true quarter end fashion, I was there for a good 11 hours. Ugh. At least I got some over time which is great…..if they want to pay me time and a half bring it on! AND I just found out one of my best friends from college will be in Charlotte tomorrow since she is flying out Friday night. That means I can leave work early, meet up with her and catch up!

We had our team building outing at work yesterday. I was kinda hoping we would do the whole cross-your-arms-and-fall thing, you know the trust test? But no dice. We got to go bowling instead at the newer swanky Strike City.

Yeah, not your typical bowling alley. There were only a few people eating there and we were the only group bowling, which I thought was a little odd since it was lunch time and at the EpiCentre.  In a never-ending search to find the best nachos in Charlotte, I had to try theirs.

How could I not be a happy girl with a plate of nachos like that?? They were loaded and yummy. However I hate when they load up nachos with too much stuff that they get soggy and really don’t have a crunch. But on the other hand, I don’t want naked nachos. catch 22 I guess?Sadly I couldn’t finish them but with some beer and a nap after wards I could’ve!

I’m actually going to miss my team (excluding one person) when I leave, sigh. And wtf is up with my arm? I feel Carrie from “King of Queens” in that one episode where Deacon and Kelly get a portrait of Doug and Carrie painted and she has a monster arm and one puny arm.


I really need to invest in a good foundation. I shouldn’t be this shiny. But I am Italian and cursed with greasy skin so I guess it’s in my genes. Ulta is on my trip list!

Last night, I seriously did nothing. It was rainy and gross outside, which I love, so when I got home I changed into my comfy clothes. And once I change into comfy clothes, there’s no turning back for me. 99% chance I won’t get back into normal clothes and go out. Even though I was in comfy clothes, I ventured out to Chick Fil A to redeem a free combo meal coupon that’s been sitting in my wallet.

Oh Chick Fil A, you never fail me. And whenever I ask for something your employees always say “My pleasure” in a sincere way and you have flowers at your tables. I love you Chick Fil A.

I would love to say I had a really exciting Wednesday night but it consisted of me, Lincoln, the ABC Wednesday night line up and the couch. It was bliss. Very seldom do I unplug and just be but it was a nice change of pace. Lincoln got a belly rub for a full four hours so I think he was a happy camper as well.

And ok, it may consisted of a Cookies N Cream sundae as well

Maybe not the smartest idea at 10P but 100% worth it. And wtf is up with the tv this fall? I am loving every single show I watch, which is not a good thing. I really don’t need to be sitting at home tuning in each night but that’s what’s going on.

Since it was quarter end, we had lunch catered to us. We were supposed to have Carabba’s but our order somehow got “lost” (how an order for 60+ people gets “lost” beats me) so they ordered Jason’s Deli last-minute and it was a success. We all got to choose a sandwich with a pickle, chips, drink and dessert

Naturally, I chose a brownie and it was delectable

Mmmmm…..mmmmmm.mmmm….meaty!

After being at work for 11 hours, I needed one two of these bad boys

And a carbolicious meal

And yeah……that’s all I got. Life is pretty boring at this point and need to mix it up a bit. Any suggestions?

What’s Going On

11 Sep

I am hungover in a major way. So hungover, I woke up at 7A, played around for an hour (when I say played around I meant laid on the couch watching Saved By The Bell) then went back to bed. I never go back to bed once I’m up so that’s how I know it was going to be bad. But when I go somewhere that has $2.50 pints—all pints—that’s the price I have to pay.

I havent’ posted  since Tuesday and I am just going to be honest, I’ve had nothing to say. I haven’t been cooking too much, haven’t been exercising too much and pretty much have been doing nothing special whenever I get home from work each day. I’m checking out blogs but I am not going to do a fluff post when nothing is going on.

Some highlights of the wk:

Two Jars of home made salsa from my friends mother in law

Jalapeno Turkey Burgers topped with Laughing Cow and Salsa with Okra

A filling greek yogurt/granola breakfast that I haven’t had in forever-an oldie but goodie.

I received some blogger love yesterday from Amy. She posted a few weeks ago about making a big batch of cookies for one of her friends in Texas and I jokingly said “I would love some cookies” and she sent me some! So sweet 🙂 Literally. They were chocolate peanut butter toffee cookies. I think they also have angel dist in them since they were absolutely heavenly. I got these yesterday and yeah, they are gone. She even wrapped them so it was like opening up a gift of yummyness!

WVU-Marshall game was last night. If I am going to be decked out in WVU gear, so is my dog. I like to think he enjoys when I dress him up and how cute is he in his little hoodie? My friend and I went to Picasso’s to watch the game last night

I love that they have  Van Gogh pictures in there

After having their wings last time, I had to try them again and yep—still good!

I was sipping on Stella and Blue Moon all night then we started talking to the owner of the bar and he bought us a shot. I don’t know what it was called but it had Patron and kinda tasted like chocolate milk-who knew?

And with that-I needed grease today.

I had a leftover Philly Cheesesteak sub with chips for lunch and it hit the spot. Now I am contemplating what to do today. It’s a gorgeous, overcast day out and I love it. I love overcast days because I feel less guilty about doing absolutely nothing. But then big question is Greek Fest or Blues, Brews and BBQ tonight?

That’s What She Said

28 Aug

Thursday breakfast, I ate like a queen! I recently bought these Pops Mix It Strawberries flavored cereal. I am not much of a cereal person and if I do indulge, will have the healthy kind like Kashi Go Lean. Fruity Pebbles will forever be my favorite kind of sugary cereal —mostly because the milk gets a stained glass look afterwards and that’s just fun! But I never buy the Fruity Pebbles and only bought this kind since it was $1 for the bag.

 

It tasted good but didn’t keep me full at all.  When I got to work, I had plans to meet up with an old co-worker of mine for coffee. We went to Einsteins and when I got there I remembered that a coupon for free hash browns and free coffee when buying an order of Chicken Mini’s at Chick Fil A. If you don’t get their calendar and love the Chick Fil A, you need to get on that around Christmas time. It’s become tradition that my parents get me that every year and that’s fine with me b/c I am easy like that (that’s what she said). Tip—if you buy a $25 gift card, you get the calendar for free. The Chick Fil A near me takes expired coupons as well so I am still using some from last years calendar.

 

Chick Fil A was also the highlight of my lunch on Thursday with their fat free honey mustard dressing.

I love you Chick Fil A..

Has anyone out there heard about the Denny’s Fried Cheese Melt?

 source

I know this is a heart attack waiting to happen but I am going to try it. One of my sorority sisters will be in next wknd and she is crashing with me and we have made plans to make a late night trip to Denny’s (sober unfortunately) and have a go at it. We talked about splitting it but who knows if that will happen. All I know is I am so excited!!! And I am going to enjoy every last bite of it since I love all things cheese. The fact that it’s only $4 doesn’t hurt either.

Thursday night I made a Taco Casserole for dinner with macaroni, ground turkey, black beans, mushrooms, jalapenos, shredded cheddar, onions and sour cream. Wow, that’s a mouth full right there (that’s what she said). I’ve never made this before but it seemed like a really good recipe to try since I had all the items on hand and could mix everything all together and save for later.

I added some cayenne pepper, garlic and Tabasco to it for a little kick and kept me full for hours.

 

Pretty 

Dirty

 I made the mistake of watching Dexter Season 4 Thursday night. I was sleep deprived since the sugar from my adult drinks kept me the night before but needed to watch it.  I always tell myself I am going to only watch one or two episodes but five episodes later I was on the season finale and wow. That’s all I can say. Such an amazing show, I love the story lines, the dark humor and the character development.

I got up at 530A on Friday only to find I was out of coffee. No bueno. I need to jump on that asap b.c me in a house with no caffeine is just not right. At least was up with me…….well, kind of.

I made yet another egg and cheese sandwich topped with ketchup and green onions but got a little creative with the presentation

 

I am so happy I am a 30 yr old woman with the mentality of a 14 year old boy

I missed my bus but had Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang to keep me company. I just love her so, she is just so crass. My dream lunch (or happy hour) would be with her and Kathy Griffin, I just know we would be besties!!

Friday was unbearably slow. By 945A I was done with all my catch up work and had nothing to do. Thankfully, I remembered the hippies were outside and took a break to go read some more Chelsea and get some hippie loving.

 

All of this for $8. I love hippies long time. I got green tomatoes and of course am going to make fried green tomatoes. I’ve had them before and they were delish and can’t wait to make them this wknd! I asked how long they are going to be out this year because they usually go away in September but she said they are going to be there as long as they can with their winter produce available. That made me happy.

 

Lunch was leftover enchiladas, just as good the second time around!!

 

Then one of my co-workers brought me over a piece of her carrot cake she had from the night before. It was so yummy, I thought it was Cheesecake Factory quality but turns out it was Food Lion, go figure.

Does anyone remember the Pizzeria potato chips from the 90’s? They looked like Doritos and has different flavors like Pepperoni, Supreme, etc. These Wheat Thins taste so much like them its freaky!! I wish I could find Pizzeria’s on-line but don’t think they exists anyone, sadness.

I was itching to get out of work since I had happy hour plans after work and had a little overtime this week so I got to leave a little earlier than normal. I got out a little early and was waiting at the Charlotte Transportation Center (AKA Blvd of Broken Dreams) and I feel uneasy whenever I’m there. Someone is always smoking something, I get eyed like I’m a fried pork chop and I feel like a riot is about to break out. I was just sitting there with my ipod and big sunglasses not making eye contact with anyone and waiting for the bus to get there. The bus never showed up and I thought I was going crazy but turns out it was 15 minutes late which was cutting into my happy hour prep time. I don’t like that.

I started with some Abita Light. I never tried this beer before but love their Purple Haze so thought I would give it a go. It was a decent beer and kind of had a nutty flavor to it.

Then we went to Piccaso’s Sports Bar for drinks and grub. They claim to have the best wings in Charlotte so I had to give them a go. I got the Hot BBQ wings

Mmmmm, look how messy they look! I devoured these babies and they definitely lived up to the claim. I was still hungry afterwards and may have had some of my friends onion rings. Good times had by all.

Again, I woke up this morning with no coffee. But I did have food so I made a slammin cheese and green onion omelet topped with avocado and tomato

Hope everyones weekend is off to a great start!

Mmmmmm….Meaty

15 Aug

I had to get my car inspected yesterday morning—–at 7A. What fun. I grabbed a Kind bar and was on my way to the inspection place. After reading this post by Janaetha about fitting in workout moves into your every day life, I also grabbed my heart rate monitor so I could go on a walk while my car was being inspected. I figure I could sit on my booty reading some old magazines or play on my phone until the battery died since I forgot to charge the night before or I could get some cardio action in. I fit two miles in while my car was being inspected (I was hoping I would walk by Marshall Park b/c it would have been too freaky and fun seeing that’s Janaetha’s hubby’s name but no go).

I am a total Starbucks whore but at times, get a craving for Dunkin Donuts. I keep forgetting we one in my area and yesterday was the day I would hit it up after a hiatus. I got a medium strawberry Coolata and their new French Toast Bagel Twist

The bagel twist was super tasty….until I looked online and saw that it has 380 calories. It was good but I don’t want to waste that many calories on something so little. I finished half of the Coolata and kept the rest to enjoy later on an inevitable hot day.

 Saturday afternoon, some friends and I went to the Charlotte Summer Irish Festival

Hair sticking to my forehead is not hot

Ok, so I’ve been before but this year it was kind of lame. I went the first year when it wasn’t such more of a festival in a parking lot but in Connoly’s bar with bands playing, drinks a plenty and like a casino, you had no concept of what time it was since it was a dark and smoky bar. This year they had a lot of vendors, more family friendly stuff, dancers and such but it was outside in a barely covered parking lot and it was just dreadful outside. The one positive was that beers were only $3 but after being there for an hour, we were ready to head inside for some food and air conditioning!

Do you have a place in your city that you insist people go to when they visit? Well, I have a few of them and Mac’s Speedshop is at the top of my list. Mac’s is a bbq joint but also kind of a biker bar and anytime I have someone asking where they should go to eat when they are in Charlotte, Mac’s is my answer. They also have a patio area with picnic tables that’s great to kick back with some beers and bbq when it’s nice out but it was just too hot out this time.

 I got the Texas Beef Brisket Sandwich with grilled onions and a side of mac n cheese. This was MAJOR for me since the only thing I’ve ordered in the past has been the pulled pork sandwich (the Big Pig) and I have been so happy with it. I hate when I have an item I always order somewhere and I don’t want to stray away from it because what happens if I don’t like it as much?  But what if I try something new and it’s the new LOML? That’s love of my life folks.  This time I got the brisket and was not disappointed at all.

I didn’t mention how the brisket is served on Texas Toast huh? And this right here is one of the reasons I love Mac’s so much!

Come to momma!!!

My belly was so happy and full after this meal. The brisket was awesome and I didn’t even need a knife to cut it since it was so tender. I can’t believe it took me so long to try something different but I am sure happy I did. I was telling my friend that this restaurant is reason alone why I will never give up meat. Yeah, there is tempeh and tofu but I’m sorry it just doesn’t compared to some oink oink or moo moo.

That was kind of a linner meal going on so I wasn’t too hungry later on that evening. I made a peanut butter and jelly sandwich thin with Peanut Butter & Co. Cinnamon Raisin Swirl and Cranberry Preserve on a Arnold Whole Wheat Sandwich Thin.

Now I can see why people like the peanut butter so much. This was delicious!

This morning I brought back and oldie but goodie–eggs in a hole

with a side of fresh, sliced peaches

Just an fyi, eggs in a hole does not work with liquid egg whites. Now that I type that out, it’s a big obvious but when it’s 8A in the morning and I haven’t had coffee it didn’t seem so clear and obvious. Regardless, I love a hearty Sunday morning breakfast.

I don’t know what today will bring and I  really don’t have any plans until the evening. I think I am going to break out the  kettbell and maybe take Lincoln to the park for a walk since he seems bored lately.

Happy Sunday Funday!
