Sweet & Salty

Has anyone else tried this chocolate?

I’m kind of in love. The salty-sweet thing is right up my alley… salted chocolate, salted caramel, kettle corn…

Last night I was a good girl and went to bed early (11- early for me) only to wake up at 4am with the worst toothache EVER. It was awful. I was up for an hour scrounging around for painkillers and googling tooth pain. This happened a couple years ago and I went in to the dentist thinking that I needed a root canal. Um, no. It was from sinus pressure. I think this might be the same because I took a Sudafed today and the tooth hasn’t hurt since. Isn’t that weird?

Now that I’ve overshared my my dental issues, let’s move on to the food, shall we?

Seven a.m. came REAL early. Breakfast was a bowl of plain yogurt with blueberries, frozen cherries, honey drizzle, walnuts and Cinnamon Cheerios.

We had a neighborhood playgroup this morning at Kira & Luna’s house. It was a tad stressful because most of the babies were still in that sweet, immobile stage… while Jack has progressed to the awkward, lumbering, “Get out of my way or I’ll step on you, teeny-tiny baby!” phase. He’s like a cute Godzilla. Once he started trying to pull down Kira’s fireplace screen, we got out of there. Sigh.

I opened the fridge this morning to find this.

So apparently these eggs are hard-boiled? Good thing Brian wrote that 45 times on the carton. I may have missed it.

I snagged a couple to make a quick sandwich: Sliced eggs, spinach, pickles, tomatoes and mayo on whole grain, along with leftover couscous from last night’s dinner.

This afternoon Jack, Chloe, Piper and I all took a nap, which made me feel a million times better. It’s amazing what a little extra sleep can do for your mood (and how terrible lack of sleep can make you feel). Jack was down for 3 hours, so I even had time to prep dinner after my nap.

We had chicken foil packs again. You really can’t beat it in terms of convenience- just toss in whatever veggies you have on hand, sliced chicken breasts, worcestershire/soy sauce/vinaigrette/teriyaki/whathaveyou, wrap in foil and bake at 400 for about 45 minutes or so.

I used onions, carrots, red pepper, broccoli and mushrooms, and drizzled with Worcestershire and Italian dressing.

It’s really best over rice… but I was craving a baked potato…

Alright, folding laundry then heading to bed. Let’s hope tonight is less eventful than last night.

    That same toothache/sinus thing happened to me this week! I thought for sure I had 5 cavities or gum disease or something awful, but it went away when the sinus pressure went away! I thought it was so strange!

    Girl, you don’t know how lucky you are. We’ve been married 30 years and I am SURE hubby does not have a clue how to boil an egg. among other things.
