We Don’t Need No Stinking Plates

We’ve been warned about inclement weather and woken up to 40+ degree days so many times this winter that lately when the forecast calls for snow, I just chuckle. 

Dear Weather Gods – I am so sorry I scoffed.  Please make it stop.

This morning I woke up to this –

I also woke up to this,

but that is beside the point.

Actually, I woke up to pitch black because when the husband left the house at 4:30 a.m. I got up with him.  Well, not got up necessarily, but woke up and pulled my laptop into bed with me.  I spent an hour or so doing computer work things, an hour or so doing computer fun things, and finally an hour or so finishing sleeping (we got in bed after midnight!).

When I woke up for good at 8:40 I took one look at the window and decided to skip the gym for the day.  Unfortunately, by the time I realized that I had to go outside and move my car it was too late to change into workout gear without getting a ticket.  But it was just as well in the end because when I drove past school the main road that leads to the gym was totally untouched by both snow plows and tire tracks.  Since I had to circle the block to repark my car I took a quick detour to Wegmans and came back with goodies.

I’ve had an intense craving for creamy drinks lately; my fingers are crossed that it’s not a sign that I’m getting sick!

Speaking of which, has anyone tried the International Delight Iced Coffee yet?

I’ve been obsessing over it for days but I can’t bring myself to shell out 5 bucks without knowing if it’s good.

Breakfast was waiting in the fridge for me at home.

What do you do with an almost empty jar of Biscoff?

Quietly weep until you buy more make overnight oats.

Last night I combined 1/3 cup oats, 1/3 cup skim milk, 1 Tbsp chia seeds, and 1 dash cinnamon with the last 1 Tbsp or so of Biscoff left in the jar.

Before serving this morning I stuck it in the microwave for 30 seconds and the Biscoff got all perfect and melty.

My drink was also served in a jar.

I chilled the coffee, then put it in a big jar with the So Delicious Vanilla Coconut Milk and 2 tsp of sugar, and shook shook shook.  Plus ice and a straw.

I’m thinking shaken coffee might be my “thing” until this creamy beverage craving is licked.

In another meal without a plate, lunch was consumed straight from my mini casserole dish.

Into the dish, baked at 450 degrees Farenheit for 30 minutes, went layers of –

  • 1 sliced zucchini
  • 1/2 cup marinara sauce
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese

It was similar to my cheesy eggplant bake, but this got a little bit watery.

Still good though.

I’m hoping to continue my productive streak with work on school stuff and my binders project, but with new episodes of Grey’s and Bones available we’ll see how it goes!
