Day #72: Weirdest menu ever

Today I ate:

chocolate chip pancake
pork roast with potatoes

cheesy casserole with fried onions
chocolate peanut butter pie
starbucks double chocolate chip frappacino

chocolate ice cream with peanut butter cups
more pickles

I purchased the book "Julie and Julia" at Barnes and Noble and will read it by Thursday, as I have a book club meeting then!

Rereading this menu makes me laugh.

Read "Julie and Julia"
Go to church with Kassie
Make guacamole
Visit with Uncle Louie
Read more of "Julie and Julia"

Right now:

Day #71: Johnson dinner

The dinner was fantastic as usual, and my pie was great! I forgot to take a picture of it before people started eating it - it was made with an Oreo shell, a layer of vanilla pudding mixed with peanut butter and a layer of chocolate pudding, and drizzled atop the pie was carmel and chocolate syrup. Sugary goodness!

I didn't get too far in my songbook exercises, but I'll continue working on it tomorrow.

Also, tomorrow I'm planning on heading to Barnes & Noble to read Julie and Julia sometime during the day.

That's all!

Yeah....not so good... but my father made a pork roast that was just delicious!! I'm looking forward to making a pie for the large Johnson dinner on Friday afternoon. I'll post a picture of the pie when it's done!

Day #69: Veganlicious

I'm currently making some chocolate pudding with almond milk as opposed to cow's milk. I'll let you know how tasty it is.

I drank some in a glass and it's quite good! It's a bit like delicious nutty candy. Thicker than skim or 2% cow milk, not as "chalky" like soy milk.

Tomorrow I'm just going to hang around home and get creative stuff done. Woo!

Day #68: Happy Birthday, mother

I spent all evening with my mother, and it was fabulous! I brought home some steak from a local restaurant and we spent the time together by discussing Christmas and work and schedules, then we both fell asleep around 9pm.

I didn't get the song done... but I'll have plenty of time to do this weekend!

Day #67: Mmmmm, hummus!

Niki and I hung out at The Beirut on Monroe and now we're at Panera. Looks like it'll be closing soon - perhaps about in ten minutes. Had a great and busy day at work today and I'm looking for another day for the same effect tomorrow.

My to-do list for tomorrow:

Wish my mother a happy birthday (She's so cute!)
Think about Christmas presents for others (no, I won't be doing black friday)
Write a song (I hope to prepare it for recording soon after)

Panera is kicking us out. Goodnight!

Day #66: Cedar Creek

I attended Cedar Creek with Kassie. I enjoyed it, and want to return. The message was about the fifth and sixth beatitudes, concerning mercy and compassion. I have always felt that I do not have much compassion nor show mercy to others, but after digging deeper, I found that I do - not just as much as others.

After the service, I ate a delicious veggie sub! Kassie, Leo, Joe and I hung out at their house for an hour or two, then they went to Menards, and I went home.

I played with my phone and got all the contacts that I care about from my Palm Centro into my Env Touch. Didn't really do anything creative - ended up watching real films of WWII filed with horror and gore. Wasn't exactly what I wanted to watch. I really wanted to watch something lighthearted, but my mother wanted to watch WWII in HD on the History channel. It was a good show, but... sobering.

Tomorrow, I want to hang out with Niki and eat hummus! That's all I really want to do!
