WIAW #24

Happy December Friends! Hope you all had a great holiday Thanksgiving weekend and are managing to keep warm if you aren’t in a warm location. I officially started my new job this week. It has been great to get started and meet my manager and coworkers.

After a month of being super busy I managed to take some time and relax this weekend. I read a few books and just chilled each afternoon. It was exactly what I needed. I finished Five Days Left by Julie Lawson Timmer and would recommend it if you like the Jodi Picoult type books. It was a really good read. Plus I couldn’t complain about my view (while reading messages from friends about the terrible storms at home)
IMG_1705I picked up a waffle maker at Macy’s over the weekend for only $8 and was excited to try making waffles out of the Kodiak Cakes mix. Unfortunately it was failure. I tried using it twice and even after greasing it with coconut oil the waffles stuck and didn’t seem to cook. I ended up returning it 😦

One of the bowls in the dinnerware set I bought developed a crack in it. I returned the set to Costco over the weekend and started looking for a replacement as they were out of the set I had bought. I ended up ordering a new set on Monday for a great deal directly from the manufacturer. The bad news is I am back to eating on my one plastic plate and paper plates till the new set arrives. After assembling this lunch I realized it looks like it is fit for a child! Almond Butter sandwich, banana, grape tomatoes, and some Trader Joe’s ginger cat cookies….Yum!
IMG_1711Dinner was a frozen turkey burger I picked up last week in a pita bread and topped with broccoli slaw. I also roasted up some more brussels sprouts, carrots, mushrooms, and green beans and topped them with some Hope Foods garlic lentil dip. I also enjoyed a beer from Wasatch Brewery in Salt Lake City.
IMG_1693I think I overcooked the burger a bit….I am always nervous about cooking poultry enough and end up making it ‘well done’.

IMG_1700I have been loving my nightly snack lately. I am still all about the diced apple with tons of cinnamon that I microwave and top with cherries. Some days I add some frozen yogurt but other days I eat it with out it. It is so good either way. Add a cup of tea and it has been a wonderful way to end my days.
IMG_1707This weekend I am participating in the Hot Chocolate 5k race. There is a 15k as well but I haven’t been able to run as much lately due to my hectic schedule so I just signed up for the 5k. There is supposed to be a great hoodie/jacket (the true reason I signed up haha!)

Hope you all have a great weekend…any plans?
Do you own a waffle maker? Have you had success with it?
Any favourite teas?  I have been enjoying Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride and Sleepytime by Celestial Seasonings lately.

    Is that your new home/community? I love food that takes me back to my childhood although I definitely eat more meals like the one you posted now than I did then – I was a terrible eater and had fast food all the time as a kid!
