Yes my friends – for you all of you that are now out of the office on your way home or close to being off, I would like to say “Congratulations” you made it to the weekend! I just beam on Fridays, I feel everyone is happier and it is my treat day so Fridays are always swell.
I love waking up early on Fridays and racing down to the gym, for some reason I have an easier time getting up on the F-day. My InTouch mag kept me amused on the mill for about 30 and now I can safely say I am caught up on all the Tiger Gossip and can now follow along while everyone talks about it. Its so sad I have been out of the loop with my busy schedule that I have not even been to people.com! But I am back on that gossip horse now with my mind mush magazine
Like I said it is Treat Day and for my treat this morning I drove over to ‘Bucks and got myself a grande Red Cup of Joy and savored every sip as I wandered through the mall and watched everyone hustle and bustle around. It was great!
After the mall wander it was time to “Get back to work Kris” so into the office I went with my lunch and enjoyed chatting with everyone online and on Facebook! You should all add me as a friend on Facebook or join my Facebook Fan Page - I would love to have you
Breakfast was a Green Smoothie- 2 scoops of Vanilla Chai Vega, 1/2 organic apple, 1/2 organic banana, 3 tbsp chia seeds, 1 cup almond milk, 2 cups water, 2 cups greens.
For the Green part of my breakfast I used 1/2 kale and 1/2 spinach. I love Kale and was upset to find out I didn’t have any freshly washed, and I was too hungry to wait I used some spinach. Not too shabby!
Lunch today was the same as yesterday – Wilted Spinach, Carrots and Avocado with a tad sprinkle of Sea Salt, however I did step it up a notch and also ate some Baked Sweet Tatters!!!
I love baked sweet tatters when they get all brown around the edges.
Well, of course some truffles and cookies Lots of Water and Tea!
Stuffed Baked Squash
I baked acorn squash in the oven @ 350 for 40-45 min
Then I cooked some Mung Beans with sea salt, pepper, and Mrs. Dash – I simmered these on the stove top for about 30 minutes and then added fresh tomatoes and spinach
When these were both done – I stuff the squash!
Well with only 1 week to go to the big day! 6 days for me, as we celebrate on Christmas Eve and have all the fam over for dinner and then gifts and desserts after. This has always been our tradition and I would not have it any other way. Having the celebration in the evening is so wonderful when the candles are lit you have a good glass of wine and just sit and listen to laughter and music. Can you tell this is my favorite time of year?
As you all know this year Ryan and I will be vegan for the holidays. We said at the end of October after our detox was complete that we will go vegan (even though I was eating vegan long before, really.) for 3 full months. Ryan wanted to experiment with his energy levels and working out on 100% clean vegan diet. We are very dedicated that the “worst” thing we are eating right now is Mary’s Crackers and they aren’t bad! Anywhoozle, this means no traditional christmas dinner for us.
I decided to make a few dishes to bring along to dinner and I can’t wait to try this one out. I asked for a few recipes the other day and I decided I will be making the Sweet Potato Casserole from OhSheGlows.
I will also be making some other glorious dishes to come along
My mom always makes the best food and luckily for me it is always healthy and clean so I know there will be lots for us to eat!
Desserts are more my forte so I will be bringing lots of those with me We have to have something to leave for Santa!
A Dogs Life……..
Bath Time!! Yes as soon as I said these word, Hudson was under that dinning room table! Well it was a struggle and I grabbed him and in the tub he went. Isn’t it funny that when you lift your pooch out of the tub they move there “arms” in a slow moving dog paddle….and they are out of the water! So Cute!
**EDIT – Since writing this post – Hudson decided to rip open the garbage bag and get all in there so he has had 2 bath time’s today!
What do you like better in your Green Smoothie – Kale or Spinach???
