I Missed You & You & You & You

by Meghann on December 9, 2009

Home Sweet Home!

Boy did I miss this face. ๐Ÿ™‚

I missed this face too.

But I don’t get to see that face until Friday. Not too much longer now!

I headed straight from the airport to my parents as soon as I landed this morning to retrieve my little bundle of joy. ๐Ÿ™‚

After 3 days of meals out, raiding my parent’s fridge for lunch was a welcomed change of pace.

Baked sweet potato topped with black beans, mushrooms, avocado, and a sprinkle of cheese.

My eyes were a bit bigger then my stomach and I only finished about 3/4 of the dish. Still it was just what I needed. ๐Ÿ™‚

After lounging around my parents for a bit, I finally headed back to my apartment. Oh Apartment, how I missed thee.

I missed my yogurt too.

I spent my afternoon working from home and catching up with life. You should be happy to hear I finally brought the boxes to the dumpster. Go Me!

Dinner was randomly thrown together.

I knew I wanted tofu and I knew I wanted green.

I sauteed a mix of kale and spinach with tofu, mushrooms, beets, and onions and steamed some rutabaga on the side.

Caitlin had discovered the elusive Peppermint Ice Cream at her Publix the other week (she knows me so well) and since Edy’s was buy one get one free I picked up the Egg Nog flavor to try as well.

Samples of each were required fresh from the carton.

Egg nog is one of those things that I enjoy the taste of, but don’t actually like drinking. The milk texture of the drink throws me off! However, the ice cream was fabulous.

I had a small scoop of each flavor as my dessert.

Yay for peppermint ice cream! It feels great to have you back in my life. ๐Ÿ˜‰

An early morning run is in the books for tomorrow. This trip threw off my training schedule and I’m more than ready to get back on track.

Good Night!!

I recently took advantage of that Edy’s buy one get one free deal as well! Tart Mango for me!

Brrrrr! I am just shivering looking at your dessert!

Peppermint ice cream is perhaps my favorite part of Christmas. Try it with dark chocolate chips!

4 Alison December 9, 2009 at 10:01 pm

Welcome back!
I have both of those ice cream flavors in my freezer, too. We like the peppermint with Trader Joe’s chocolate sauce and the egg nog with crumbled gingersnaps on top. Yum.

Ooo la la, yummy ice cream.

that loaded baked sweet potato looks awesome! I always miss my pets sooo much when I’m away from them.

What an adorable tree! I wrote a post awhile back on business travel, check it out if you ever want some tips on staying healthy AND being understanding with yourself when you get off track. It happens!

8 Lindsay December 9, 2009 at 10:35 pm

Eggnog anything has to be my favourite food of the holidays!

9 kbwood December 9, 2009 at 10:51 pm

14 Erin December 10, 2009 at 12:45 am

It’s always nice to get home after being away. Both of those ice cream flavors looks delicious — definitely need to get on the hunt! ๐Ÿ˜€

Peppermint ice cream is one of my favorite treats this time of year!!!

17 meyergirl December 10, 2009 at 8:57 am

I”ll have to get the husband some peppermint ice cream (it’s his favorite) to replace the vanilla he drunkenly put in the fridge last night. ๐Ÿ˜‰

18 Kristie Lynn December 10, 2009 at 9:09 am

At first I thought the steamed rutabaga was mango chunks! Glad you are back home and enjoying all the comforts it comes with ๐Ÿ™‚

19 rungirlrunn December 10, 2009 at 9:13 am

The peppermint is my absolute favorite ice cream!!

20 Pen December 10, 2009 at 9:18 am

i discovered the SLOW CHURNED LIGHT eggnog last week. I think last year I only ever saw the full-fat version. I promptly bought 3 containers of it. ๐Ÿ™‚ I have 1.5 containers left. ๐Ÿ™‚

21 Jenna December 10, 2009 at 9:19 am

i am so glad to hear you got your peppermint ice cream back in your life ๐Ÿ™‚

Mmmmm that peppermint ice cream looks yummy! Not so much on the Eggnog one.. bleh, not a fan of eggnog.
In Canada our big chain of grocery stores has its own brand and they sell an ice cream with candy cane pieces and chocolate chunks… it’s SOOO good. ๐Ÿ™‚

23 Deb December 10, 2009 at 9:32 am

Maddie just can’t help herself, she’s so cute!

24 Brandi December 10, 2009 at 9:36 am

glad you got home safely! I’ve got to find that peppermint ice cream!

25 Sarah (from See Sarah Eat) December 10, 2009 at 10:01 am

Maddie is so cute, I bet she was very happy to see you ๐Ÿ™‚ And Derek will be too, I’m sure, ha ha.

26 tangerinesandmarmalade December 10, 2009 at 10:25 am

My mama and I just had a phone convo about how clutch peppermint ice cream is now! She and I plan on splitting a celebratory gallon when I come home from finals!

27 Karla December 10, 2009 at 10:34 am

I haven’t tried the peppermint Edy’s yet but my roommate got the egg nog one and I tried a spoonful. It was really good!

Pumpkin one is still my favorite!

28 Morgan @ Life After Bagels December 10, 2009 at 12:20 pm

I always get home sick when I’m away, I don’t even like to sleep away from my house for one night – it’s just not the same.

29 Ali December 10, 2009 at 1:52 pm

It must be goof to be back!!! I love eggnog too! I will HAVE to try that flavor! yummmm!

30 karla December 10, 2009 at 4:39 pm
