Nap Time

by Meghann on November 21, 2010

It didn’t hit me just how exhausted I was from last night’s adventures until I hit publish on this afternoon’s post, laid my head on the couch’s arm rest, and proceeded to nap for 2 hours.

Sleep is good.

Lazy Sundays are good.

I napped.

Made lunch.

Picked Maddie up from the kennel. (Apparently she’s very protective of her doggie playmates and when it’s time for of them to leave she gets defensive. Poor thing.)

Watched football. Watched Derek watch football while I read a magazine. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Made dinner.

The cornbread recipe came from the back of the bag of Publix Cornmeal.

The 15 bean soup was easy.

I soaked two cups of the 15 Bean mix (found in the Whole Foods bulk bins) for 2 hours. Brought a big pot to medium heat and adde a yellow onion, 2 carrots, and left over ham steak. Once everything was heated through I added the soaked beans, two cups of vegetable broth, one cup of water, cumin, salt, and pepper. Let that cook on low-medium heat for 2 hours. Popped in a batch of chopped kale, cooked for another half hour, and serve.

I’ve been on a soup kick lately and now have a freezer full of it! I need to cut back and eat what I already half first. ๐Ÿ™‚

Ate the last of my Ghiradelli Chocolate Bar for dessert.

Christmas commercials were out in full force today. Now, I’m not sure which I’m more excited about – eating turkey and pie on Thanksgiving or taking advantage of the Black Friday deals the day after Thanksgiving. Mama does love a good deal. ๐Ÿ˜‰

T-minus 5 days until I shop til I drop!

I mean…

T-minus 4 days before I give thanks with my family. ๐Ÿ˜‰

And this my friends is how you celebrate a 21st birthday. Obnoxiously large alcoholic drink? Check! A gathering of 18 of your closest family and friends? Check! Generous rounds of shots all night? Check! A dueling piano / karaokee bar? Check! A hotel room you can safely stumble to at the end of the night? more ยป
