The solstice was yesterday, Hannukah is in process (I think -- correct me if I'm wrong, please!), Christmas is days away, and I'm all used up! I had a moment at work the other day when I realized I was maxed out on the holidays -- I didn't want to listen to any more Christmas music, be in a busy noisy store, deal with the commercialism, etc. The theme for my holiday this year seems to be "too much crap" -- too many people, too much noise, too much stuff, too much junk food. I'm actually looking forward to being on my own on Christmas day -- my plan is to stay in my pajamas as long as humanly possible, chain-watch movies until I can't take it any longer, and then maybe get dressed and take a walk. (Especially because I have to work the 24th and the 26th!)
I shouldn't really complain this much, because, after all, it did snow (finally) yesterday! I love the snow. :) Everyone was complaining about how bad the roads were; my reply was a shrug and, "well, I take the bus, and the bus just keeps plugging along, so I LOVE SNOW!"
So, I wish you all a Merry What Have You, (if even all you are celebrating is a day off of work,) and leave you with two food photos, because that's all that I've cooked that's been blog-worthy since I posted last!
broiled zucchini with extra-virgin olive oil and a sprinkle of romano cheese (everyone should own a Microplane, if you don't already! Get the one without the handle -- it works the best.)
Vanilla-Cinnamon waffles with bananas, pecans, and maple syrup. Breakfast this morning rocks. :)
(Oh yeah -- I did make scrambled tofu and hash browns, with a side of grapefruit for Dan and I for dinner last night, but since I've taken so many pictures of scrambled tofu already, I decided to spare you.) :) (The funniest part was, Dan was most excited about the grapefruit, I think -- he practically licked his entire plate clean, but kept talking about how much he loves grapefruit. Silly boys.)
