Mashed Potatoes

Thursday, December 26, 2013

I ate so much mashed potato yesterday that I believe my insides are now 100% mash. I had requested my mother make me mashed potatoes and green bean casserole for Christmas and I ate the whole pot yesterday. It was 4 bowls total. It was everything I wanted and more. My mashed potato heaven. I won't be getting any until next Thanksgiving though which makes me sad. emoticon It's worth the wait.

Christmas is over and I have the reality of the weigh in this Saturday morning. I haven't stepped on a scale since last Saturday which I consider an epic achievement. I was one of those people that weighed in several times a day. This week, however, I just straight up didn't care. I enjoyed myself to the fullest extent the law allows me to and I regret nothing. I also didn't exercise at all this week. I feel pudgy. There's only one more party to get through for New Years and then I'm done. January brings back a routine and I have all this cool new kitchen stuff to try out.

Today's lunch is leftover minestrone and a hummus sandwich on whole wheat. Very, very, very filling. I couldn't even finish the minestrone because the sandwich was filling enough for me.

I've also been getting some crazy ideas about making my own sushi again. I can never get the darn rice to taste correctly. One of my presents was an insulated bento box and a steamer. 2014 will be the year of cooking!

    Its good to hear that you enjoyed the holidays!
A few days of having a good time without exercise will not hurt. Its when you do months of no exercise. I hope this small break helps make you happy.

And YAY to a year of awesome cooking on the horizon!

    So glad to hear you ate what you wanted AND enjoyed every bit of it. I did the same and I don't feel guilty at all.

I love hummus on sandwiches. I love hummus period, it's so good. My favorite is jalapeno-cilantro hummus...YUM.

I have made sushi several times, and I used special sushi rice, cooked it in a Japanese rice cooker, and then it gets a sprinkle of a sugar-vinegar, and possibly salt mix. I don't remember the proportions, if I can find the recipe I'll let you know what it is. I think that is what gives the rice its flavor.

    When I was vegan one of my favorite things was a hummus and sprout sandwhich. Yummy. I wish hummus wasn't so high in carbs though, I miss it!

I can't wait to here more about this kitchen stuff! I know there are several gadgets I have had my eye on (mostly a mandolin slicer).

Glad you enjoyed your food! It seems like your holiday was a good one!

Have a great day!
