Well fed and well rested

This morning musing is coming to you a little late. After a whole week of not sleeping very well I finally crashed out last night and slept in this morning. I feel so much more alert now!

Brefkast of a nanner topped with Justin’s chocolate almond butter. I can never bring myself to buy a whole jar of Justin’s nut butter. I mean it’s really good, but I’m not sure if it’s $10 good. And yet I’m sure with how many of these little packets I’ve bought I could have spent less on a jar for the same amount.

I’ve been shaking things up with dinner lately. For the past few months I’ve been kind of uninspired to make new dinners so we’ve been having a lot of the same stuff every week.

Last night I made a pork tenderloin with garlicky smashed yukon gold potatoes and a sour cream and mushroom sauce.

Pork tenderloin w/ potatoes and mushroom sauce

So good.

I’ve found the best way to cook a pork tenderloin is to season it and sear it in a pan with olive oil then wrap it in an aluminum foil packet and bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. I then let it rest for 5 minutes before slicing it up.

The mushroom sauce is easy too. I just saute the shrooms with some scallions in the same pan I cooked the pork in. Then I add salt, pepper, and the leftover juices from inside the foil packet that the pork cooked in. When it’s all cooked down and saucy, I stir in a little dollop of sour cream to make it creamy.

I also threw a few garlic cloves in with the pork while it was cooking so that I could use them to smash into the potatoes. Good stuff.

We both crashed out with one of these afterwards…

New Ale Yeah! growler

Decatur is now allowing the sale of growlers, which is practically the best news I’ve heard all year. :)

We picked up a growler full of Fuller’s Pale Ale from Ale Yeah!, a local craft beer purveyor, and chilled out with Netflix.

This weekend stands to be pretty chill.


Bread and cheese

So, so tired this morning! I haven’t gotten a good night of sleep even once this week, mainly because Liam has been wired at night and screams his head off outside our door at 3am. If you are ever thinking of adopting a Burmese just know that they are extremely needy and grow very attached to their human companions. I swear they’re like puppies.

No dainty bowl of fruit and yogurt for me this morning. Only bread and cheese would do.

Bagel breakfast

Maybe you read Janetha‘s post about what she would eat if health were not a concern. My comment was that I would eat an everything bagel with cream cheese for breakfast every day of my life if it wouldn’t eventually kill me. Seriously, I could live on those :)

Washed it down with a hot cup of tea…

Trees in my teas

It makes me so happy that Jeff makes me a cup of tea every morning without even being asked. He’s a good husband, that one.

It is gloomy and rainy out today, and yet will still manage to get up to 92 degrees. I am terrified of how hot it’s likely going to get here in August. And when I’m too hot at night, I can’t sleep….

What are your weekend plans?



Strawberries and cream

Last night’s blogger dinner was fantastic! I was so uncomfortably full when I got home last night that I just had to pass out immediately. I’ll fill you in on the whole thing later today, I got tons of great pictures of the mountains of delicious vegetarian food we tasted.

This morning, since my belly is still aching from how much I managed to stuff in it last night, I opted for a very small and light breakfast. Strawberries are getting sweet here in the heat of Georgia and they made for a refreshing and light yogurt bowl.

I topped them with this orange passion fruit yogurt. I really like the thin consistency of Wallaby yogurts, really good for drizzling over fresh berries!

I know that’s not a lot of food, but I need to go get ready for a chiro appointment so I’ll get more to eat when I get back.

My camera is dead or I would show you my other cat Lucas being cute and curling himself all over my keyboard. There is no way I’m ever gonna eat all the biscuits he’s making! :)

I’ll show you the blogger dinner after lunch, It would make you too hungry if I did it before and I’m just not that mean. 😉 Well, I guess I could tease you with this…

See you after lunch!
