Our building manager and the HVAC guy are currently having a seriously in depth discussion of Dancing with the Stars in his office.  Apparently, HVAC guy's wife and he have been taking some ballroom classes, and she's got him hooked on the show now.  I am amused, and a bit confused as to how they reached the topic.  When I headed downstairs they were talking about new contracts for something to do with the ventilation system.

I got a diet Dr. Pepper as a treat with lunch, because I've been sick all week and am finally feeling better and I deserve it dangit.

It is almost entirely flat, and therefore kinda gross.  Major letdown.

Going to the Ocean Spray plant outside of Plymouth, MA was fun when I was a kid.

That would be interesting.

Being close to Wisconsin we went to the cheese manufacturing places quite often.  I don't mean sliced stuff in plastic.  I mean luscious slabs of deliciousness.

The free samples were the best bit! 

Cheese curds!

You know, I enjoy whiskey, and I honestly didn't realize that a whiskey-specific decanter was a thing.  They are pretty though...


Really, I'm just looking for one with a lid. If there are whiskey specific ones...they're likely out of the realm of spending that we're in.

But who is he?  Don Draper? 

Ha!  Indeed.

There are some really pretty ones on Amazon, though, the the actual crystal ones are insanely expensive...  Then all he needs is an ice bucket and those cute little tongs...

The big gift this year will be for E's mom.  Now that she's in her apartment, we want to get her a new KitchenAid stand mixer.  She left hers in PA, and it's something she mentioned to E that she really misses and wishes she brought with her.

Leftover rolls made into sandwiches with cranberry relish, turkey and stuffing and a small drizzle of gravy over the stuffing layer.

That is how you do lunch the day after Thanksgiving.

Yes, to all but the cranberry relish.  I forgot to get rolls to make with dinner.  I'll need to pick up some tonight, I guess.

Why you no like cranberries?

I like cranberries, I dislike gel-like substances.  It's really a texture thing for me.  I've only ever had the canned kind, and found it disgustingly jello-like.

I will make extra stuffing just so I can have it for breakfast over the next few days.  Sooo good!  E loves stuffing too, so I'm probably going to have to make a double batch anyway.  That guy can eat, and I'll be terribly upset if there aren't leftovers.

I know I'll be getting turkey at Christmas, since that's what my dad prefers... My mom usually makes a turkey and a ham or something like that.

I figure we'll still be making the mashed potatoes, stuffing, roasted veggies, etc, so it'll still be Thanksgiving in the ways that matter.  My favorite part is the stuffing anyway.

We hung our Christmas lights last night...but they won't be turned on until the 1st most likely.  I'll want to buy a tree first week in December if possible.

I adore Christmas time.

Me too :)  We'll be putting up our tree this weekend, after Thanksgiving, probably :)

Incidentally, turkeys are expensive here this year!  We ended up going with a chicken instead.  I didn't see a single turkey for less than $30.  Even a turkey breast alone was $15-20...  I like turkey, but I don't like it that much.

At least you recognize where the bad habits are :)  That's a big step in the right direction.  You can catch it before it really becomes an issue...

Exactly.  We've been letting ourselves slip too much into "well... neither of us really feels like cooking, let's just order something."  Can't keep doing that.

Besides, there's no excuse for that kind of laziness.  I mean, I'm a decent cook, and dude's a chef.  Seriously, we shouldn't have any issue with quick, easy food prep.

I've been picking up too many bad habits lately. Grrrr. 

 

My bank statement doesn't lie. 

Totally know what that's like.  E and I had a super quiet one this past weekend, mostly because we talked about how we need to do a better job of watching our money.  We're trying to save some, and Christmas and all that is coming.  We really want to get his mom a KitchenAid stand mixer for Christmas, since she's mentioned several times that she really misses her old one.  She forgot to pack it when she left for TX.

I'm just so confused by his logic. "I need cash so I'm going to sell these tickets that might cost me my job that pays really well!"

I once worked with a guy that got fired for "pilfering".

He thought those 5 gallon Poland Springs water jugs would make a great change receptacle.

At one of my old jobs, they had a group that was in charge of the "green" initiatives for the organization.  In their wisdom, they thought we should stop using the water coolers with the 5 gallon jugs because of all of the waste when the jugs were thrown out.  Instead, they thought we could install more drinking fountains (hugely expensive and not very practical in the building).  I mentioned that we didn't actually throw out the jugs, the water company came back, picked up the empties and recycled them...  I found out they'd wasted weeks worth of meetings discussing this initiative.

Even funnier they've apparently been circulating articles about "being grateful" and managers are requiring their teams to read them. Wonder if the guy who bought the $500k parking spot had to read it.

Ha!  Because telling people to be grateful for whatever you're giving them always works.

Allergy Remedies
Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
