I wanted to write a nice blog post for you guys, but I caught a cold somewhere between Tuesday and Wednesday.
Since then, my brain has pretty much rejected all logic, reason, and pleasure.
For real, it takes me like 3 hours and some NyQuil to fall asleep.
I’m trying to think of good content. I really am.
But my nostrils are on fire and I’m about as fun as Ben Stein narrating a documentary about pigeons.
So I figure I’ll go with whatever I got and edit it for flow later.
In short, this is going to be somewhat of a fluff post.
I’ll put as many helpful tidbits and outbound links as I can without making this spammy crap.
But I must warn you…that Ben Stein joke is pretty much the best I can do right now…
You can click away now, if you want to…
Or stick around and read about my vegan (and semi-congested) Thanksgiving.

The Night Before…
Oh, here we go…
I’m writing this as I sniffle on snot the night before. Body aches, itchy soft palate, snotty nose…
My dad made a comment that I was getting “snarky”. At first, I thought he was being a smartass, but he meant that I sounded stuffier than this morning.
All I did was sleep today. I hope it means I’ll be better for tomorrow.
Anyway, I’m blathering.
I’m getting this started tonight so I can take some pics tomorrow. If you’re like me and suck at preparation (and are also sick), you’ll be able to relate.
I’ll log things as I go. (It’ll also spread the work out so I can “work” on Thanksgiving without working on Thanksgiving. See what I did there? Sounds pretty clever to me.)
In the meantime, I’ve taken some ibuprofen and NyQuil to get through the night. Stashed some in-case DayQuil in my purse for tomorrow.
I got into peanut butter toast sometime in high school, and I LOVE it. The best meal for lazy people trying to be healthy. Especially if you’ve got a hearty bread like Ezekiel to work with.
It’s also great because I am NOT a morning person.
And the earlier I have to wake up, the lazier I get with my breakfast. So I toast some bread and slap some Skippy Peanut Butter on top. Done.
I add the dates for easy calories. Have you ever looked at the nutrition facts of dates? They’re like 33 calories each. 2-3 dates is 110.
So I cut 6 of those suckers in half and stick 3 on each slice of toast. (Yes, I eat 2 pieces of toast for a meal. Ezekiel bread comes in slices a little smaller than conventional bread. Even if it didn’t…no shame.)
