WIAW Other Than Cookies

December 14, 2011

By now, with all the cookies I’ve been posting, you’re probably all assuming I’ve gone off the deep end and have been crumbling them over everything I eat. Or you now, just plain eating cookies for every meal.

I swear I’m not.

And what better way to prove it to you than with a WIAW post?


Multigrain bagel half, peanut butter, banana, dried fruit mix & “Nog-Spiked Nut Butter Sauce”

I swear that nut butter recipe is coming!

No December morning is complete without some Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride.

Pumpkin Mac and Cheese.
“Cheezey” Kale
Brussel sprouts. <— I promise they’re in there somewhere.

Guys, it’s official. Mac and cheese is my favorite food. And this pumpkin version is amazing! Good thing the recipe makes an entire 9 x 13 in. pan-full.
Totally satisfying lunch, even if it was at work.

Heaping handful (or two) or almonds.


Chili Verde via Giada de Laurentis

I love finding new styles of chili. This one was really good, although Joey said he would have liked it to have more heat.
Who knew hominy was so good? Or even knew what hominy was. I’m glad I explained it to Joey before he left for the store.
The night was concluded with some holiday episodes of Glee and The New Girl. Let’s just say I was more than excited to see a performance by Rory and that The New Girl had Joey and I in hysterics, per usual. Then we popped in my very favorite Christmas movie, Love Actually (tied with Scrooged, of course), and got some present wrapping done.
Oh and some dessert might have snuck in.

Hot chocolate and a Gingerbread man.

Don’t worry, that post is coming, too!

I’m not eating cookies for every meal, but they have to find their way in at some point during the day 🙂
Happy Wednesday and as always, thanks to Jenn of Peas and Crayons for hosting the WIAW party!
What’s your favorite holiday movie?

What’s your all-time favorite food?

Do you watch The New Girl? If not, you need to start ASAP!

    I’m jealous of your sugar cookie tea. They don’t sell it anywhere around here. Oh and I love the new little snowflakes up there!

    I can’t wait for that cookie recipe! Sooo cute! And YES I checked with Celestial Seasonings and the Sugar Cookie flavour is not available in Canada 😦 – when I next go over the border to the US I’ll get some. How do you drink it? Plain or with milk etc? So excited to try it!

      Make sure to stock up! I drink it plain, but adding some milk sounds excellent!

    All time favorite food? How could I possibly choose! To name a few: pizza, Mexi enchilada, mac’n’cheese, pumpkin pie

    Your gingerbread man is too cute!

    Love Actually is one of my all time favorite movies, not just favorite Christmas movies. Love it! I just learned a few days ago what homimy was too, never knew! I’ve been loving polenta lately which is quite similar I believe. What a delicious day of food especially that lunch mmmm.
