My co-workers really know me!

So because I was gone over the holidays, I left all my Christmas loot at work.  So happy to bring it all home tonight!  My friend “W” at work put her presents to me in this box – love it!

isn't this THE cutest box EVER!

 Then she put a bunch of cool stuff from Williams-Sonoma.  Lots of cookie cutters, recipes on making sugar cookies, a HUGE spatula, little “green man” whisk, cheese slicer, meat tenderizer, spoon rest, veggie peeler and omelet pan.  Thanks W!!  

along with my other loot - a snowman night light, snowman tray with Panera gift card, and a vegetarian cook book!

Turns out they know I like snowmen AND cooking!  Thanks guys! 

So I came home from lunch and brought home Jimmy John’s.  I ended up with the unwich and cut it up and made it into a salad.  I added chopped cucumbers and carrots to bulk it up.

Although by 3:00 I was starving!  So I reached into my back up drawer and heated up 1/2 package of Ramen noodles.


For dinner tonight I did a dry-rub boneless pork tenderloin.  This one is small, about 1.75 pounds.  Even though it has a “pop-up” button, Tony suggested that I use our probe and take it out at 160 degrees.  Good thing I did, because it never popped!


On the side I made mashed potatoes and garlic/parmesan green beans. 


So I am still playing around with my camera.  I know NOTHING about cameras, but since this new one has a TON of different settings including a cuisine button, I’ll just play it by ear.  Very fun so far though!

Off to do another load of laundry and relax – see you tomorrow!
