The title makes it seem like I just ate cream cheese frosting all day. Close. I started the day off with a double shot of espresso with a tiny bit of sugar from our Nespresso machine. I completely skipped breakfast and ate a cupcake instead. Quality control.
Our housekeeper was gone for a few months jet setting across Asia and today was her first day back. Saying I missed her would be the understatement of the year. She’s amazing with my kids, keeps my house looking fantastic and lets me run to the store for necessities. Like trash bags. Who doesn’t have trash bags? Me. For two days. I also bought a bunch of fruit, gobbled down a couple pluots and had a mystery Vitamin C drink.
I’m not sure why, but I buy this Korean drink every time I check out. It claims to have as much Vitamin C as 35 apples, 9 tangerines, and 7 lemons. I doubt it, but whatever. It was 36 cents.
We had leftover spinach and sage lasagna for lunch. I truly believe lasagna is better the next day. It was yummy. It has 3 cups of spinach, ground turkey, and no shredded cheese on the inside. I topped it with slices of brie. Not because I’m fancy. It was the only cheese we had left.
Between baby naps and “quiet time”, I whipped up a batch of my famous “Gas Station Sangria”. Yup. You read that right. Four ingredients and tasty. All those years of bartending and waiting table to pay my way through college has resulted in me making sangria from gas station ingredients. I’m sure all those winery reps I worked with would be real proud.
I had a glass of sangria at 3 in the afternoon. Again, quality control.
I was so happy to hear that the mister was coming home a little earlier than usual. He went to the store to grab diapers and came home with beef. Lots of it. He was intent on eating red meat for dinner, until I told him we were having…..
Lasagna! We needed to get rid of it. I guarantee that we will NOT be eating lasagna for a very long time.
Ended the night with a tall glass of water (I wanted sangria), then busted my sewing machine out to get my craft on. Sewing under the influence is not recommended. Sangria will have to wait.
For those of you who don’t know, my little one just turned three. I threw her a rainbow paint party. Part of our birthday traditions around here is having red velvet cake on your birthday. My husband is part Canadian and all the Canucks in his family do red velvet cake as well. They have a thing for red & white. Thank goodness their tradition isn’t poutine.
What birthday traditions do you have?
