From warm to icy

What another nasty day in terms of the weather. Before we left the house, I had to move my car out of the driveway and scrape off all of the many layers of snow and ice. It is not fair to transition from Florida’s warmth to this crap! That is especially true because it was unseasonably warm while we were gone. I swear that always happens when we are on vacation.

Breakfast was coffee, honey nut cheerios and toast.

The burial was nice and had to be quick because it was so cold and snowy out. We’ll have to go back to the grave site and visit Grandma and Craig’s Grandpa when we can see their headstone.

We then went out to eat at the Cheesecake Factory. For once, there wasn’t much of a budget because the funeral money had been set aside for a meal and the meal we were supposed to have yesterday had to be canceled due to the weather.

So, with not much of a budget, we all indulged a bit. I had a Pomegranate frozen Margarita.

My husband had a yummy berry (non-alcoholic) smoothie.

My lunch was half of this plate. The rest can be my lunch at work tomorrow.
It was Evelyn’s Favorite Pasta and was penne tossed with Broccoli, Oven-Dried Tomato, Roasted Eggplant, Peppers, Artichoke, Kalamata Olives, Garlic and Pine Nuts. Totally my kind of meal!

The eggplant tasted so good. I really need to cook with it more often. I forgot how much I like it.

We all ordered cheesecake slices to go. When we got home, I had a few bites of my Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake.

My husband Craig should have ordered his namesake off of the menu, “Craig’s Crazy Carrot Cake Cheesecake,” but doesn’t like carrot cake, so he got Snickers instead.

Well, time to get back to my work e-mails, of which I worked on for the last hour and then took a little break from to blog. Then I need to scrape off my car some more and get to the gym. A long workout is in order to burn off that big lunch!

Hope your Monday has been swell!
