Happy Sunday everyone!
I am currently using an HP laptop to blog because my Mac is being retired due to old age. I will be blogging the details of our Disney World trip everyday and need to make sure I am comfortable with this other laptop! So far, so good!
Speaking of Disney World, WE ARE GOING TO BE THERE IN 8 DAYS!!!!!
Today I will be trying on all of my clothes and deciding what I want to wear. The average temperature in Orlando Florida this time of year is 23-25 degrees Celsius during the day and 12 degrees Celsius in the evening. FAR BETTER than the -15 degrees Celsius with snow we have these days! Sun dresses, here I come!
Our weekend began with a meal out with my mom and dad at Earl’s!
I had a mixed greens salad to start:
And a dynamite roll as my main!
It’s SO easy to overdo it when you go out to eat so my main piece advice for you is to check out the restaurant’s menu before hand! I knew what I was ordering by 9:00 am on Friday morning
We had a lovely visit with my folks about our upcoming trip and then it was home time for a Christmas movie (Home Alone) and some popcorn!
We also moved our Christmas tree so it’s in our living room INSTEAD OF OUR KITCHEN! That said, now we have a couch in our kitchen…Oh you have no idea how happy we will be to sell this house and move on to something with more space!
Yesterday morning we slept in (glorious!), sat and had a cup of tea and then I squeezed in a workout. I’ve had an incredible week of workouts, filled with cardio (Leslie Sansone is my hero) and yoga! My shoulders are still sore from my Wednesday night practice!
After my workout we got started on brunch! I whipped up some apple cinnamon waffle topping (I wasn’t feeling syrup) and some whole wheat waffles!
I will share with you my super easy waffle/pancake topping this coming up week! It was like eating healthy apple pie!
Yesterday afternoon we went shopping for clothes for Jefferson (for the trip), a few odds and ends items for our trip and groceries! Upon our return I whipped up a Fall Vegetable Curry dish (courtesy of Cooking Light!) with quinoa:
FULL DISCLOSURE: I am currently in the beginning stages of an intense love affair with chickpeas. HOLY SWEAR WORDS BATMAN.
FULL DISCLOSURE PART TWO: I am currently in the midst of a beautiful relationship with frozen fruit soft serve. I’ve eaten it for years but for some reason I can’t seem to get enough. Pineapple, frozen berries, mango OH MY!
Last night I blended (in my Nutribullet of course) 1 1/2 cups of frozen mango chunks with 1 cup of almond milk and a tablespoon of honey to get this:
There. Are. No. Words.
I don’t usually add honey or almond milk but I was feeling saucy yesterday
It’s the perfect dessert!
So that leads me to right now, where I am sitting on the couch with a Mike Wozowsky mug full of Cold 911 David’s Tea (preventative measure for our trip!)
I am going to watch Beauty and the Beast, perhaps make myself another apple cinnamon waffle, do some yoga, pack for our trip AND THEN I have plans for a lentil loaf for dinner that will surely knock your proverbial socks off!
Have a wonderful Sunday everyone!
