"getting things done" kind of day

Mr P and I made no hesitation in getting up and getting things done today.  It's been a while since we have had the opportunity to just do what used to be a "normal" Sunday.  We simply woke up, put on a pot of coffee, turned on some tunes, and got started!

Thanks to my company holiday party at the Chart House in Weehawken beginning at noon and after-party festivities ending early (compared to a normal night at the bars) we were well-rested for our productive day.

Mr P's typical eat-half-of-these-already-ridiculously-small-petit-fours-so-you-can-try-them-all-too

he knows me too well... Mr P got lots of whipped cream and 2 maraschino cherries for me, ice cream for him! 

delicious Never Summer ale at Cork City in Hoboken

Casually eating all day, we were blessed with Mr P's pizza-dough-turned-bread for breakfast toast, our usual weekend 44 North Coffee, eggs-about-to-expire-turned-deviled-eggs, and leftover-Thanksgiving-cranberries-turned-cranberry-sauce with plain yogurt.

there are few things better than melty peanut butter... especially on pizza-dough-turned-bread toast ( SUPER crunchy on the outside, super moist on the inside, just like pizza dough!)

Mr P's egg and swiss sammich

yum... coffee :D

surprised with deviled eggs after returning from the laundromat

a bit of cranberry sauce with plain Greek yogurt before heading back to finish laundry

After venturing into horrendous Wal-Mart and Target (I know, what were we THINKING going in there on the Sunday before Christmas???) and making a pit stop at our favorite Asian grocery, we returned to do 4 big loads of laundry, clean, and make salmon for dinner!

After dinner I decided to finish writing out the Christmas cards, ran out of stamps and envelopes, and dragged Mr P to Duane Reade to pick up some more.  He first made another PB sammich to go, and we headed out the door.  We got to the corner when he heard a woman cry out, he turned around, saw an elderly woman on the ground, threw his half-eaten sammich to the ground, and ran after her.  She tripped on the sidewalk and hit her knees (ouch! and her nose too...)  We helped her up and walked her to her destination to make sure she was ok. 

check out the MOUND of PB on the sammich that he only got halfway through before helping the lady!!  Yes, that is a bevel on the side... there's THAT much peanut butter on it. I suppose when there's no parents telling you how much to put on, you can put on as much as you like :P

It felt good to help someone out after we have had such amazing neighbors helping US out for the past week with our water situation...

Ahhh... productive, fun, good food.
Just... the way... a Sunday... SHOULD be :D

Cheers to a festive week ahead!

Every time I read your blog I gain weight. Enjoy it while you're young and treasure that you both are willing to be creative and open-minded so you can eat well while being mindful of the cost of food lately.

I am jealous of Mr. P's bread making skills, too, BTW. He makes bread. I make bricks.
