Another Rainy Day

Hubby graciously cooked breakfast this morning, giving me the luxury of sleeping in. I hogged all the pillows and blankets, made myself a nice little nest right in the middle of the bed, and proceeded to just reveled in the twenty or so minutes of pure bliss. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz....

I finally rolled out of bed and attempted to become active. Didn't work very well, what can I say, I'm solar powered. These cold, rainy days put me in a state of hibernation that would put a grizzly to shame. I wasn't very hungry so munched on an apple and a lemon blueberry muffin...


...before spending the morning doing website updates for a client.

Lunch was leftover roast and salad:


The roast was a thousand times better shredded and soaked in the pot liquor-must remember this for next time. For supper Hubby requested something porky so I pulled a package of pork chops from the freezer to defrost before convincing Munchkin she really needed a nap. I'll spare you the horrific details but there was much screaming and dramatic sobbing. At least I know she'll always have an acting career to fall back on.

For supper I seared the pork chops...


...then finished them in the oven.


I whipped up a cheese sauce with heavy cream, cream cheese, cheddar, and Gruyere, poured it over frozen broccoli, then slid it into the oven next to the chops. Hubby loves cheese, and cheesy veggies, and I wanted to make him a favorite dish. See? A couple extra minutes sleep make this Mama a happy camper.

Here's supper:


Afterwards I enjoyed an ounce of Theo's Organic 70% Mint Dark Chocolate while catching up on Castle. Nathan Fillion is dreamy *swoon*.
