Hi friends. Today was definitely a day where the "fog" was basically blinding at work. Kids these days.
Before I get to my 30 days challenge, I want to have a quick chat about healthy eating. I'm not a vegetarian (like I need any more food restrictions!), but I do eat probably 80% of the time as a vegetarian just because I like meals of veggies and carbs and I find it easier to cook without grocery shopping all the time.
Sunday I had a delicious vegetarian meal, made half by Eric and half by me :)
Eric made the stuffed mushrooms... yum :) These include mushrooms, stuffing mix, dried cranberries, onions, celery. It's held together by white wine and chicken stock, which actually makes them NOT vegetarian, but obviously you could make these with vegetable stock. These are a favorite of things my mom makes so Eric had to recreate them. I don't think Eric was impressed with the process of actually stuffing the mushrooms but he likes them enough he MAY volunteer to do it again.
I made the mashed potatoes. I didn't think stuffing and mashed potatoes would be enough for a meal, so I took used the Oh She Glows idea of adding navy beans to my mashed potatoes for some protein. I added them before mashing so they became part of the potatoes and they were very tasty.
This meal filled me up well, but left me enough room for my night time snack of ice cream or popcorn- or both.
What's your favorite "vegetarian" meal? (give or take some chicken broth)
Now on to Day 7 of the blogging challenge :) Favorite Movies. Those who know me know that I'm not a big movie person. I have a very short attention span so I prefer TV shows, or reading/surfing the internet. When I do watch movies, I like comedies and girly movies. Here are my top 4 favorite movies of all time...
Now and Then
Yes, I really wanted a secret code with my friends where we could flash light each other when we wanted to chat in the middle of the night. But alas, none of my friends lived quite that close.
Sandlot is kinda like the boy version of Now and Then + subtract a few years. I love me a good bonding moment.
Who needs bonding when you can have job trashing?
"What is it you'd say, you do here?"
Interestingly, the first time I saw this movie I didn't really like it. Too many story lines I guess. Now I've seen it several times (and seeing a movie more than once is big for me) and I loved it more every time. The kid pictured above is by far the best character.
What's your favorite movie?
