Sorry for my disappearing act last night but I didn’t get back until really late and figured a morning post would be better than a tired zombie blog post! 😉
Had fun at the party though…I have a love affair with the Kendall-Jackson Wine Center…
I’ve said this many times before, but my approach to holiday parties is eating something light beforehand so you won’t be tempted to eat (and drink!) everything in sight. I always like to be prepared because my worst nightmare is being starving so before I left I had a bowl of this soup—
With a quarter cup of black beans, hot curry powder, sea salt and cayenne (had to spice it up a bit!) plus a Trader Joe’s chicken burger with spicy apple mustard and hot sauce and a pear:
I really was NOT impressed by this soup at all. In fact, it was rather gross. I wouldn’t buy it again but it did the trick and filled me up for a few hours.
We stayed at the party for only about 30 minutes then I headed back to Adam and Rocky’s house so we could all go in one car to the Top Chef party. Plus, it was a chance to make some hot chocolate!
I don’t know if y’all know this, but I REALLY love marshmallows!!!!!!!
Rocky made some sort of sausage creation!
Some things never change….except for the fact that their house is a WHOLE lot cleaner now than it was when I lived on the futon. 😉
Well, what did y’all think about the finale??!? As you might have guessed, I was a big Kevin fan but I know he is destined for truly great things regardless. It was fun to watch the show with a big group of friends….drank some delicious Cambria pinot and laughed a bunch. I’m pretty excited because we are all planning a big Tahoe trip in a few weeks….now I have never really skied or snowboarded in my life so I’m a little nervous… but excited to see SNOW!!!
Taking a rest day from the gym today because I’m pretty sore from all those crazy leaping squats I did yesterday. I also did combined lunges and bicep curls, hamstring curls on the stability ball, shoulder press, tricep kickbacks and seated row…plus a 40 minute walk (to and from the gym).
Off to get ready for work—have a wonderful day! I just ate an Ezekiel muffin with almond butter and jam with a couple egg whites to get going….I’m sleepy today!
