Hi there. Happy (day before) Christmas Eve!
For some reason I was extremely tired last night. I must have needed sleep since I slept in until 10:00am this morning. I got some laundry going and then made myself a bowl of bran.
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup organic oat bran
- 1/2 banana
- nutty granola
- splash of organic almond milk
I have been dying to try almond milk (perhaps I’ve had it before?), so yesterday I finally bought a carton at the store. It certainly added a nutty flavor. Now I’m anxious to add it to smoothies and such…
I crossed everything of my to-do list yesterday, including creating tomorrow night’s dinner menu. We are having my dad’s side of the family over for our traditional Christmas Eve dinner – there will be 10 of us total.
Christmas Eve 2009 Dinner Menu
Spirits: beer, wine & (non-alcoholic) pomegranate tonics
Appetizer: (unknown) courtesy of my aunt & uncle
- mixed greens, satsuma, pomegranate arils, red onion, walnuts, gorgonzola & pomegranate vinaigrette

Dessert: chocolate peppermint molten cakes & decaf coffee
– conquer laundry
– finish a gift
– organize picture files [they get crazy blogging every day]

I really should exercise today – no reason not to – so hopefully that will happen at some point…just not in the mood =/
Wishing you an extra-special holiday,
