Hello- I’m back from my quick Thanksgiving vacation and inadvertent blogging break.
Ian and I got back to Chicago around 9 pm last night and had a quick dinner of Thanksgiving leftovers.
Brussel sprouts, tofurkey, sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, and stuffing.
We also had some pie from Sweet Mandy B’s that Ian’s mom sent back with us. Dare I say best apple pie ever? Of course it escaped the camera though- I was way too busy eating!
My alarm went off way too early this morning, but by 6 am I was swimming laps in the pool and everything felt wonderful. Honestly one of my favorite parts of swimming is that it doesn’t feel like a workout, its relaxing (and you get a great post-workout high!) I swam 2,000 yards straight, no intervals or anything. It felt great to stretch my body after being stuck in a car for five hours yesterday.
Breakfast was quick because I had to leave earlier than usual this morning. Also, we have yet to go grocery shopping so it was slim pickins in our kitchen!
I had an english muffin, half with pumpkin cream cheese and half with cream cheese and the apple pie preserves from the Franklin Cider Mill. I also had a thawed banana with a little bit of peanut butter.
All together with my coffee and eggnog and of course my laptop in the background
My day was crazy. I was out the door by 7:45, had class from 9-11, worked from 11-2, grabbed a quick lunch, had class from 2-5:30 and had to give a presentation, and then raced home.
I had a quick snack after walking in the door. Greek yogurt, a tiny spoonful of apple pie preserves, and some granola
We had leftovers again for dinner. Ian and I will definitely thank our parents for sending us home with sooo much food. I think this is four meals in a row (not counting breakfast) that I’ve had leftovers.
Tofurkey, mashed sweet potatoes, stuffing, roasted veggies, and tofurkey stuffing.
And this will definitely be dessert again
Yum, seriously.. just look at that pie.
Honestly, I’m a little sweeted out but due to the two pies we currently have sitting in our kitchen and that fact that I know both are tasty and good quality, I refuse to waste them.
I’m off to do some homework. Finals are this week and next week so I will be a busy bee the next two weeks.
Have a great night
