Wow, it certainly has been a busy day over here today! Between the traffic, the mall, the cooking, the walk, the manicure and pedicure I gave myself….hahaha 😉 I’m ready for a long winters nap! Actually, the mall wasn’t as painful as I would have thought today and I knocked everything out in about 2 hours, which was pretty good considering the fact that its the day before Christmas Eve.
When I got home I took Mikan out for an hour long walk!! It was awesome…I didn’t intend on walking that long but the weather was gorgeous and Mikan was happy 🙂
I snacked on a yogurt with a little honey to tide me over until dinner…
I made the creme anglaise for my honey thyme ice cream (which tasted AWESOME) and set it in the fridge to cool overnight. Tomorrow morning I’ll crank it in the ice cream maker then freeze it again until dessert time.
And for dinner we just had leftovers….blueberry chicken from last night, salad (with blue cheese crumbles, sliced almonds, dried cranberries and homemade dressing) and toasted olive bread with a smear of butter.
I had two of my favorite cookies EVER for dessert 😉
And watched a little Ratatouille with the folks. Tomorrow I’m waking up early to get going on my walnut cake as well as another secret baking project I can’t unveil yet (because everyone I know reads this blog!). I was really wanted to get to a noon hot yoga flow tomorrow but I already know there will be no time, so my mom and I are going to do a Yoga to the People class via my laptop in the living room 🙂 Keeps the holiday stresses at ease, people, keeps it at ease. No tension no worries, as my Bikram instructor, Thom, likes to repeat over and over to us in class.
I am SO tired! Must be all that walking I did earlier. I’ll see you in the morning for a Christmas Eve breakfast!
