Today was totally one of “THOSE” days where you know you might just be better off if you just stay under the covers and don’t leave the house.
Last night, I remembered to set the alarm, but, I forgot one sort of important detail ~ to actually turn the alarm ON! I woke up luckily at (5:50 am) in a panic since The Husband had to go in today by 6 am. I felt so bad telling him you have to get up and go now. I rushed around getting him out the door then, the rest of my morning went like this:
* Quickly throw everything in the crock pot to make the planned Irish feast #1 Guinness Beer Pot Pie. Try not to get sick cutting up raw meat that early in the morning (so repulsive).
* Stuff the crockpot to the bring with everything, but, put a cookie sheet under it in case it “overflows”
* Throw random food in a bag to take for lunch (notice anything missing here)
* Fill up SIGG water bottle, knock it over while grabbing the lid, fill it again!
* Get ready and out the door to rush to Starbuck’s because The Husband asked if I could bring him one (guilt told me I had to since I didn’t exactly wake him up on time)
Wait forever and a day at Starbuck’s (because it always takes forever when you are in a hurry :)) Realize AFTER I order and stood there impatiently that I FORGOT to pack breakfast when I packed lunch *sigh* Hop back in line and have them think about helping the obviously cranky girl 🙁
Get paid back for begin grumpy while driving in and my latte spills all over my car ~ frickin’ frackin’!!!
I finally managed to make it into work late, gobbled down my breakfast then realized I FORGOT to take a flippin’ picture ~ AHHHH – it’s not even 8 am at this point. Luckily I’ve had the same breakfast before (other than my grande latte was HOT). Starbuck’s perfect oatmeal with the berry blend and brown sugar (no nuts) (9.5 pts and I don’t even care that my breakfast is high in points at this point.)
As I opened my email, my reminder pops up to tell me have a doctor’s appointment today AFTER I had already told my friend I’d go to lunch with her yesterday…call to cancel and reschedule for tomorrow. *sigh*
Luckily, I managed to be pretty normal with the rest of my morning although I was so not feeling the fact that I had to train people all morning and have my coworkers ALL ask me about my run, why I am limping and then, have my boss tell me I am crazy for running when I have a perfectly good car to drive LOL.
Lunch was the only thing leftover we had in the fridge ~ 2 slices of Veggie Pizza. Why is pizza so good the next day ~ probably because of the CHEESE in the crust!!!
Plus two cuties (1 pt) ~ I eat these seriously for those cute little stickers!
On my way to the doctor’s, The Husband calls me to let me know the crockpot is overflowing EVERYWHERE ~ really?! Ugh….Luckily he fixes it so I don’t have to come home to deal with that too.
After my doctor’s appointment, I pretty much decided at this point that FROYO would make my day BETTER. I got a little crazy packing my small cup because sometimes, you just NEED to go crazy and have FROYO for dinner. My cup was packed with strawberry, the Mystery Flavor (Blueberry) and vanilla with sprinkles and mini yogurt chips.
When I got home, I took a little nap and then finished dinner. I pulled out the Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Sheets that I received from FoodBuzz as part of the Tastemaker program awhile back. I was not sure how I was going to use them, but, this Guinness Beer Pot Pie sounded like the perfect thing.
I should’ve checked the ingredient list before I said I’d use them because they contain High Fructose Corn Syrup 🙁
The finished product!
I wasn’t hungry at all since I had froyo for dinner 😀 and I made this dish for The Husband. I had two bites of his dish and realized I LOVE puff pastry :D, but, I didn’t really like this dish. It’s super gravy like and bland even after I added extra spices and seasoning ~ we ended up tossing it….such a bummer.
I think I’ve come to the conclusion that Saveur magazine does not match my cooking style. I’ve tried two recipes now from them…the first you never saw (Cheesy Chicken Plantain Enchiladas) and both were complete FAILS. They look and sound good, but, the result is not so good to me.
Tomorrow the Corned Beef goes into the crockpot and now I am a little nervous that my “cooker” (as in me) may be broke. I NEED to make some delicious food again that we actually keep to redeem myself 🙂
I am off to indulge in some Biggest Loser!!! Tomorrow is going to be a BETTER day!
