Christmas countdown!

December 1, 2008 at 9:14 pm 9 comments

Tonight I am starting my official countdown to the holidays.  I have about a million different projects to do and only 24 days including today to do them all.  Can I get it all done??  We shall see.

In the interest of time I am going to make this a somewhat short post.  I was looking over my pictures and my accidental deletion from my camera wiped out all but 4 pictures from Thanksgiving, so it’s really not worth posting about.  It was a fantastic dinner though and I’m a little sad I can’t share it with all of you.  😦

I wanted to do something quick for dinner so I made a fast easy meal… Cali burgers, hot peas and salad.  I used my Ener-G Foods white rice hamburger bun and I have to say I was really disappointed.  Perhaps I toasted it too long??  It sort of had the consistency of cardboard and was impossible to bite into!  I am going to give these another shot though is hopes it was just my toasting that messed it up.IMG_2108 IMG_2110

I topped my bun with a generous amount of spinach, sliced plum tomato, Dijon mustard, ketchup and of course a Dr. Praeger’s California burger.  Yummies!IMG_2107 IMG_2112

I had a small spinach and tomato salad on the side tossed with some oil and vinegar.  I wanted to make butternut squash fries, but was sad to see that my butternut squash had started to rot.  Boo!!  In their place I had some canned sweet peas heated and tossed with salt + pepper.  I am in love with peas, so this wasn’t a total loss in my opinion.  Can’t tell you what I’m working on just yet, but I got to get to it!!  🙂    Goodnight lovies!

    For some reason your picture is making me really crave peas, and I don’t have any at home. Looks great 🙂

    Those buns were gross to me too! I tried just warming them, toasting them and eating with a ton of toppings with no goodness to come from them!
