I was extremely relieved to see such positive feedback on this afternoon’s post. I was a bit worried about getting called a hypocrite, but am happy that all the comments were (not surprisingly) supportive. Plus I loved all the little/big sausage jokes
When I got home from the gym this afternoon, I came home excited to carve the pumpkins that Shane and I picked up this past weekend!
Did we do a good job??
Totally kidding. It’s ceramic if you can’t tell My parents actually got it for us last year for our anniversary!
What actually happened was 20 minutes of relaxing on the couch reading my new book while Shane watched some car show (choppers something?) With each passing minute, we lost motivation to carve. Another night? we both agreed that’d be fine.
The “lazies” were in full effect. I’m lucky I could muster up some motivation to cook dinner tonight!
Roasted butternut squash sprinkled in cinnamon, baked tofu in my usual marinade, and green beans with butter. For Shane, I subbed out the tofu for oven “fried” chicken – chicken that’s coated in egg wash and then an herbed breadcrumbs mixture.
It was deliciously satisfying and I was pleasantly full when finished I actually love that “a bit too full” feeling after meals. You know what I’m talking about – just to the point where you have to unbutton the jeans for extra room.
However, in this house you can never be too full for dessert!
Since the oven was already going full blast, I popped in a batch of my soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies in to join the party.
The perfect cookie!
The “too full feeling” – do you enjoy it or find it uncomfortable? There’s a fine line between absolutely stuffed and a bit too full, but I love the content feeling of the latter
