Ohhh, Hello blog world! You are my stress relief for the day! I’ve done so much today-all while sitting on my couch. I didn’t go to the gym this morning because I woke up and it looked like this outside:
Ok, I lied. It didn’t look like that but it was close…no it wasn’t. Truth is I forgot to take a picture. We got around 6 inches and I definitely did not want to go outside at all.
So, I worked on finals all day. I’m not even exaggerating. I’ve been doing school work since 9:30 this morning. I have no idea where the day went!
Oh well, I was nice and cozy inside all day. 🙂 Did you get snow today too?
Anyway, the only interesting thing I have to report about is this aweseme mac & cheese I made the other night for dinner.
I got the recipe out of the September Issue of Cooking Light and made the following adjustments:
- I used a mix of Whole Wheat Penne and Whole Wheat Mini Shells for fun instead of just penne
- Iused 1 cup of shredded reduced fat Cabot cheddar and 1 cup of shredded part-skim mozzarella instead of sharp cheddar.
- I only added 1/4 tsp of salt
- I did not add bacon or onions (because I didn’t have any!!)
I loved it!! It was creamy and not overly cheesy. We had broccoli on the side.
I made enough so we would have leftovers but it was too cheesy for Jeff so I’m the only one eating them! What a shame! 😉
Other than that fantastic meal, my eats have been pretty boring. I had 2 1/2 bowls of cereal for dinner last night!!
I think I’m addicted to Newman’s Own Honey Flax Flakes. They’re so good. I’ve been eating it for snacks too!
I’ve also been devouring the cookies that Jeff and I made the other night.
I’m suffering from Uncommon Grounds withdrawal. I haven’t been there in about 2 weeks. Something must be done about this!
I have a rough draft to edit for my English class and a GenEd final on Friday and then I am DONE with school for the semester. Wish me luck!!
What are your plans for the holidays?
Have a great night!!
