My tummy is pretty unhappy today and I’m pretty sure I know the culprit. My husband and I saw these yummy looking stuffed sausage balls on 30 Minute Meals a few weeks ago and I thought they’d be perfect for our low-key Superbowl evening.
They were easy enough to make. Divide 1 pound of hot Italian sausage into 6 equal parts and wrap each part around 1/2 an ounce of fresh mozzarella cheese. They smelled good. They looked good. They tasted fairly good. I knew these weren’t the healthiest things ever and that they were a bit of a splurge, but I had no idea they’d sit so heavy in my stomach. I ended up only being able to eat about 1/2 of the Annie’s Organic Macaroni and Cheese in the picture and about 3/4 of the side salad that’s not in the picture. My husband agreed that they were good, but sat heavy. I was disappointed that something we’d been looking forward to was a dud, but live and learn.
It felt good to get back to some real food for breakfast.
Peanut and I were supposed to go to our Mom and Baby group today, but it was 3 degrees and I just couldn’t justify dragging her out in the cold. I did some book reading and blog commenting instead while Peanut watched from her bouncey seat, laughing.
I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this before, but Peanut doesn’t nap much unless she’s being held. We’re working on it, but it’s a tedious rocess. We’ll get there, though. Today was an exception to the rule. She was content to lay in her crib and watch her mobile for about 20 minutes before the meltdown started. That was enough time for me to prepare and eat lunch.
~1 cup leftover Annie’s Macaroni and Cheese
~1/2 cup black beans
~1 cup steamed broccoli
~sprinkle of paprika
…all in my pretty pottery from Empty Bowls.
We’re off for Peanut’s 4 month checkup soon. If all goes well, you might see an extra place setting in my dinner pictures tonight. 🙂
How do you recover from a day of overindulgence?
