It’s all I can do to keep myself from playing Christmas music. I have a rule that proclaims the following: “No Christmas music shalt be played before Thanksgiving, whither thou wantest or not.”
I’m having a hard time following the rules. I could blame the red Starbucks cups. I could blame my mom for already having her gifts not only purchased, but wrapped. I could blame Matty B for constantly humming “Up on the Housetop”.
Whatever it is, the holiday season is in me! My meals and snacks today are proof as my unintentional theme was red and green.
Breakfast: spinach oats, with banana, mango, pomegranate and coconut. My family ate Cheerios and looked at me warily.
Snack 1: super cold, super crunchy grapes. Love ’em. Add these to the list of fruits J Man won’t touch. Matty B made him eat one yesterday and he chewed and chewed and chewed and finally said, “I can’t swallow!” He’s missing out.
Lunch: 1/2 veggie wrap and side salad from the cafe. They had a vegan chickpea salad that was so good, I didn’t even need dressing for the greens. Who knew cafeteria food could taste so delicious?
Snack 2: I stress ate a pomegranate. The sweet crunch of the arils is absolutely addictive! If you’re keeping track, this is yet another fruit that J Man doesn’t like. I made him eat one little aril. “Mmm!” he said. Excitedly I asked, “Do you want more?” He refused.
Dinner: brown rice, broccoli, zucchini, asparagus, mushrooms and Mama Pea’s Yumm Sauce. I’d share the link, but it’s gone, as she isn’t blogging anymore!
I didn’t have anything red for dessert to continue on with my pattern, but I’m desperate for some peppermint ice cream. Does So Delicious make a peppermint flavor? Is it too soon?
The countdown is on…
