In an effort to relieve my severe depression, Ben came home with an aquarium the other day. I told him it wasn’t going to work, and we agreed that the aquarium is mostly for him. But, I am going to play along as much as my sad, cat & dog-less self can. We went to the pet store and got three new friends.
Meet Banana Hammock, Ghost Face Killa and Chinchilla. Can you tell that we put a lot of time into these names and didn’t just go with the first three ridiculous ideas we could think of?
Banana Hammock is the one boy and Chinchilla and Ghost Face Killa are girls. B.H. is so named because we also picked up a banana holder today. I call them banana hammocks 🙂
I decided to have a real live plated lunch today. A sammie, chips and cole slaw.
I really had no choice but to make cole slaw since I have 20 pounds of cabbage! And I apologize to myself for putting a pic on the internet where I look like I have severe acne. Get some Mac Studio Fix Monica, seriously!I used lf mayo, vinegar, sugar, salt and mustard – mixed to taste, with apples, carrots and raisins.
Snacks included too many grapes that I should not keep on the counter and TJ’s PB filled pretzels.
I made that corn casserole Caitlin made recently for dinner. I actually make the OG version of this all the time in the Fall/Winter, but never thought to add broccoli or tofu. I added chickpeas instead of tofu for my protein of choice.
I ended up adding a little cheese on top since it needed salt and was a little dry. This is probably because I got the no salt added corn & the chickpeas sucked up the liquid.
Now I am trying to talk myself out of hitting up the ice cream again. Good luck with that Monica, good luck…
Ben’s Random Comment of the Day:
*I actually can’t put it because it is wildly inappropriate and may cause a fight between us. After a very funny conversation between the bathroom door I told him I was going to put what he said on the blog, he told me:
Ben: “You have broken the part of your brain that tells you what’s appropriate.”
