It’s July 5th (I hope everyone had a fun and safe 4th!), and I have a cold. Angel Baby is down for her nap, and the poor thing has a cold, too. This is not fun. Instead of being productive during her nap, I’ve chosen to stuff my face and indulge myself.
I’ve hunkered down in our bedroom where I should be sleeping, but the sun is streaming in around the window unit. It’s cool but bright in here. And I had a craving. Now I’m so full I am sick.
Nope, not on the list of foods we buy. Certainly nowhere near the list of foods we eat. But I want some, nonetheless. This is where enjoyment in culinary experiments helps out.
1 box Annie’s Homegrown Shells and Real Aged Cheddar made with organic pasta, prepared with unsweetened almond milk and Smart Balance nonGMO buttery spread
1/3 jar of Aldi’s Simply Nature marinara, stirred into shells and cheese. Serve while still hot.
I ate the whole thing. In one bowl. With a spoon.
And I’m not ashamed.
Lazy Bum Indulgence
There are a handful of Jolly Ranchers leftover from the “lost parrot egg” hunt at Angel Baby’s birthday party. What else can go with a full belly, some hard candy, and this attitude born of this cold? I KNOW!
I’m rereading the Harry Potter series.
Don’t judge; they’re brilliant. Disclaimer: I’m proud to be a Rabid Potterphile.
How’s your Sunday going?
