I’ve been alternating between wallowing in self-pity for various reasons and being super-crabby because I’m battling yet another sinus infection. Today however, I started feeling both emotionally and physically, even though I’m completely exhausted. Jay & the bambino picked me up and I saw this on our front porch:
Goodies from Rudi’s Organic Bakery!!! The folks at Rudi’s were kind enough to send me 3 kinds of breads to sample:
I’m lucky enough that we have a few Rudi’s products at my Hy-Vee, so when I was offered the chance for samples, I chose things that I haven’t seen here in Brookings. Like the Nut & Oat bread…Besides, how can you not like a bread that’s made with hazelnuts?
And I can’t wait to try this:
I’ve got some almond butter with these muffins‘ name on it! I can’t wait for breakfast! Thanks to the folks at Rudi’s Organic Bakery for the samples!!!
I eventually did get started on dinner…I tried to micro-thaw some ground beef. I decided at the last minute to make pseudo-burritos/soft tacos–But all we had was the ground beef, taco seasoning, tortillas, and some cheese.
When I say I tried micro-thawing the ground beef, I popped it in the microwave for the recommended time to defrost. It was still frozen when I took it out…And while I’m pretty sure this is a bad thing to do, I fried it up anyway. I cooked it longer than I normally would’ve just to try & be on the safe side. We were all hungry, and I wasn’t about to waste a pound of meat. I guess Jay & I will find out in the next 24-48 hours if somehow I didn’t cook it enough or something.
We have ice cream which I was planning on having for dessert, until I came across this in my cupboard:
I’d originally bought it to chop up and add to the cookies I made the other day. Since I had 2 bags of chocolate chips, I just used those, and I put the Chocolove in the cupboard. I’m glad I found it though…It made for a nice end to my day. It even came with a love poem inside:
