Sister, Sister

by Meghann on January 26, 2012

We have a visitor!

And she brought beer!

Well, the beer was mine, but Kelly really is here! She’s in town in preparation for Ashley’s bachelorette party this weekend and we have plans to run 12 miles together in the morning. Yay for sister bonding time! We cracked open my bottle of Shipyard Smashed Pumpkin in celebration of her arrival. ๐Ÿ™‚

Before Kelly arrived, I had a granola bar snack.

And Derek and I split a bag of popcorn.

He wasn’t a big fan of the pop up bowl, so he dumped half in a regular bowl and I got to keep the rest. Party pooper.

P.S. La Croix is BOGO at Publix this week – stock up while you can!

Dinner was still up in air when Kelly arrived around 7:00pm. We rummaged around the fridge and came up with the idea for a quiche.

First – a layer of stale bread as the base for a crust.

Topped with a mix of:

  • 8 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 4 crumbled lentil ‘meatballs’
  • 1/4 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons spinach basil pesto
  • salt & pepper

Baked for 35 minutes at 375

Done!

My favorite bites were the ones with the crusty bread crust on the edge.

Served with brussels sprouts.

We broke out a jar of cookie mix that Derek received as a Christmas gift for dessert.

I had one hot out of the oven.

Yum.

Now Kelly and I are chillin’ in front of the tv watching No Strings Attached on Netflix instant play. We also just got done playing Glee Karaokee (I still haven’t convinced Derek to duet with me yet in that game!) and caught ourselves up on mutual friend gossip. I <3 my sister!

Can’t wait to run in the morning!

Good Night!

Sandwiched

January 26, 2012

If you were to look back and dissect my 3+ years worth of lunches on this blog, you would come to two conclusions. #1 – I eat a LOT of leftovers for lunch. Waste not, want not – right? #2 – my favorite way to eat those leftovers is in sandwich form. Particularly all grilled more ยป
