I had a yummy bowl of microwave oats this morning!
This bowl contained oats, pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, a tsp of pancake syrup, and topped with peanut butter and chocolate chips. Perfect.
I ran out of regular coffee at home (still have decaf) but I had recently bought some Stash chai green tea, so I had that instead of coffee. I used to do this a lot more in the past so I think I’ll get back to it.
I got the Monterey Veggie wrap (with no feta) with a pickle and some chips. It was yummy and filling!
After lunch, we went with my parents and grandmother to a local theatre to see this very amazing and touching locally-produced movie called “The Perfect Gift” which was the perfect movie for me to see going into this holiday season.
As a Christian, this movie meant a lot to me, but I also think that regardless of your beliefs, it would be a good movie to see because the overall message is that we need to put the love back in Christmas. So go check it out if you are in the area.
During the movie, I ate some Twizzlers
It took me forever to settle down and finally make dinner. Since I was so indecisive, I snacked on a carrot + hummus while I pondered.
Eventually, I got started on making Mama Pea’s black bean burgers, substituting a few ingredients based on what I had on hand.
I also cut the recipe in half to make 2 burgers since I’m the only one eating them (I saved the other one for lunch this week).
The last of my couscous It’s okay though, I bought a ginormous bag of brown rice this weekend!
I also had some salad with hummus aka the perfect salad dressing.
After dinner, I had my second viewing of “Food, Inc” so I’ll be doing a post on that soon. I swear, I could watch that movie over and over and get something different out of it every time.
For a snack, I had my last 1.5 pieces of cinnamon chip bread with peanut butter and chocolate chips.
Hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was pretty perfect. But I’m ready to start a new week! It’s a short one too, only two days of work, woo hoo!
What are your plans for Thanksgiving? Is it at your house, nearby or do you have to travel out of town?
I’m so glad we’ll be staying in town this year, having dinner with my in-laws. We’ve been together for 10 years, married for 4, and this will be the first holiday we’ve celebrated with them on the actual day.
