A week away from home is a LONG time.
I missed a lot of things about my day-to-day life.
I missed my bed.
I missed my normal eating habits.
I missed BodyPump classes.
I missed watching Jeopardy on the couch with Ryan and shouting out the answers like we actually have a shot at winning.
I missed my typical blogging schedule.
It feels good to be back and I am reveling in the sloppy doggie kisses and full-on body slams that have been thrown my way today by Sadie.
Tonight’s dinner was good, but it was even better because it was homemade. Though I thoroughly enjoy eating out, I do get sick of it after a while. Tonight I was more than ready for some home cookin’.
After a much-needed trip to the grocery store, we prepared a quick dinner of organic white cheddar macaroni and cheese. I added a protein punch to the pasta dish by stirring in a can of chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans).
I actually make boxed macaroni and cheese in a very bare-bones way. I don’t add any milk or butter as the instructions on the back of the box say to do. I simply drain the pasta and immediately stir in the cheese mix while the noodles are still damp. I’ve always made mac and cheese this way and think it tastes thicker and cheesier when made without milk and butter.
Now I’m off to unpack a bit before hopping into bed. \
It feels good to be home.
