I had every intention of getting sous vide eggs from Starbuck’s thanks to a gift card from my friend Julianne (morning sunshine!). But when I walked into the lobby of my building, I completely forgot that it was a tenant breakfast hosted by the office of the building.
The smell of donuts slapped me in the face once I got in the lobby.
Chicago Peeps – if you need a caterer, check out this company – everything was fresh and delicious.
They had biscuits and gravy people! And sausage gravy at that. And bourbon syrup for the Belgian waffles . . . #swoon.
I prevailed though and got scrambled eggs, a bit of hash browns and fresh fruit – I counted this as 8 points because I am sure there is milk and/or cream in the eggs. So good though.
I also grabbed an overnight oat – to have for my lunch. Oats, milk, chia seeds, blueberries and a bit of chia seeds – so good! I counted this as 6 points. I was still full from breakfast and thought, do I need to have a giant lunch? The answer to that was nope!
I didn’t have to work late, so it was nice to leave on time. I saw Santa!
Hannah and Jacob went out to dinner. I defrosted some Certified Angus Beef ® brand ground sirloin I bought last week when I was at Meijer. I made black bean and beef tacos. So good. This was the first picture I was going to post. But because I know they were scalding hot, decided to play around with the layout a bit.
So I stood them up – that’s a bit better!
Lastly, I changed the angle and I LOVE how this last picture turned out. I took it in my shitty kitchen lighting, but used the portrait mode on my iphone and used “contour” lighting. Not sure what that does, but not a bad picture when it was pitch black outside.
The tacos were 7 points – 3 points for the tortillas, 3 for the beef, and 1 for the lite cheese. 5 ounces of Apothic Red (love) was 4 points.
Side note: I need to make these snowman pancakes.
I saw this meme yesterday and texted it to Hannah – so true! After a couple nights out in a row, it was nice to just relax last night and get to bed early.
Happy Friday! I have to get my Christmas act together this weekend – this month is going by too fast!
Make it a great day!
