Mornin’!

Well, I’m a wee bit exhausted this morning :( I woke up at 3:30 with a wicked allergy attack – sneezing, wheezing – the whole 9 yards. I didn’t get back to sleep until 5:30ish and before I knew it, I HAD to get up for work! Oh, life…

I popped some mad Benadryl + allergy medication and am definitely feeling better, I just hope that I don’t pass out at my desk today!!

I needed something rejuvenating for breakfast after my less than stellar night, and knew the best thing would be a tall, cold, Green Monster!

I used one of my handy dandy banana packets I made this weekend, and I was enjoying my GM in minutes :)

For lunch today, I packed some Chicken Chili.

Chili is definitely better the second day, and even BETTER the third day! This shall be a great little lunch :)

Oh, I didn’t share last night because I was too hungry to wait for it to finish baking – but I made corn bread – chili’s perfect sidekick :) This was the first time I’ve used this Krusteaz mix – big fan…BIG fan.

This cornbread was super soft, sweet, moist and perfectly “corny” if you will. Heavenly

For 26 years of my life I’ve eaten the King of Cornbread mixes – Jiffy – but I just found out this year that it has partially hydrogenated lard in the mix. RATS. I’m not saying I’ll never it again – because let’s be honest, it’s $.50 and delicious – but when given the option, I’ll obviously go for the healthier choice.

Oh, I forgot to say THANK YOU to all the generous souls who offered to ship me almond butter in light of my unfortunate seal debacle. THANK YOU!

Enjoy your day buddies!
