Another week of limited boozing, albeit with a bit of Super Bowl and finished-a-ton-of-projects indulgence on Sunday. On a related note, I made some progress on the long-term project of drastically reducing the number of open whiskey bottles that had accumulated over the previous year. Hooray, me! Although I may have opened two others…oops. At least I took a pretty picture
We made a couple of The Missus’ tried and loved recipes this week, both of which came together nicely.
One-Skillet Mac and Cheese with Sausage and Bell Peppers (sorry, no photo)
In addition, we experimented with a new recipe, BLT grilled cheese, and were quite satisfied with the outcome.
I also made my famous-among-friends oatmeal raisin cookies for a work thing but somehow forgot to document any of it. I’m a failure as a food blogger, essentially. Guess I’ll have to make more.
Evidently, I can’t do three straight days of hard workouts combined with a lot of time on my feet and come away feeling refreshed. Who knew?
Yes, this was a week to remind me that I’m human. I actually heeded my body’s advice this time and kept to easy efforts until I felt ready for a real workout. To my utter amazement, the world kept turning, and I didn’t suddenly get fat! Rest may go against my very nature, but it’s not actually a bad thing.
As alluded to above, huge headway on the honey-do list.
- Refinish our cabinet? Check!
- Hang the crates that The Missus stained? Check!
- Caulk in new doorway? Check!
- Install bike rack? Check!
- Hang decorative lights? Yeah, that too, and all over the weekend!
