Brunch and Beans

We enjoyed a nice, relaxing day.  It was filled with good food and good company and ended with a great movie.

Dustin made a late brunch with pancakes, eggs, and sausage!  Good ole American classic, but with controlled portion sizes.

Whole wheat pancakes, sunny-side up egg, and two slices of sausage 🙂


We had run out of agave nectar and maple syrup, so Dustin had to run to the store to pick some of this up:


It is so great living across the street from the grocery store, especially for last-minute people like us!

Thanks for the scrumptious breakfast, Dustin! 🙂

A few hours later we headed over to Lauren and Jay’s for dinner and a movie.

Lauren prepared this awesome spinach dip as a snack:

SO GOOD! We joked about it having MSG in it because we cleared two bowls of the dip.  Then we agreed that cheese is pretty much the equivalent of MSG, addictive-quality wise.

Next up was a chicken risotto dish with green beans prepared by Jay:


Everything was so flavorful and delicious! Mmmm.

I snacked on a spinach salad before we left because I knew it would force me to control my portions of cheesy goodness!

After eating we hit the couch/recliner to watch a classic Christmas movie:


Can you guess what movie it is?! 😉

How cozy does their apartment look?  And get this: almost everything in it was FREE.  Go Craigslist! The Christmas decorations, tree, lamps, end tables, coffee table, entertainment center, sofa, and recliner were all FREE!  I cannot say enough good things about utilizing Craigslist.  One person’s “junk” is for sure another person’s treasure.

OK, my friends, prepare yourself for some out-of-control cuteness.

Check out the kids, their “Peanut” gang:

Lucy, Linus, and Charlie…get it?! Adorable!

Thank you for having us over guys!  Always a good time with you!

Tomorrow will be a fun day filled with making goodies and getting ready to head out of town for Christmas festivities.

Goodnight, everyone! 🙂
