This morning I ran about 1.5 miles to the gym for a strength session. It was pretty empty so I had all the weights to myself. I like that.20121121 064345 800x600 thumb Holiday Oatmeal Bowl

I walked back home reading blogs on my phoner. Since I’m on Pacific time I get to see what everyone else had for breakfast for inspiration wlEmoticon smile12 Holiday Oatmeal Bowl

But, I went with the usual – pumpkin oatmeal and eggs. IMG 9371 800x533 thumb Holiday Oatmeal Bowl

I did switch it up a bit and cook up some TJ’s stuffing mix into my eggs. I am in love with these veggies and herbs!image thumb31 Holiday Oatmeal Bowl

Question: Do you have special holiday tableware?

I really would love a special set of dishes for Thanksgiving and Christmas one day.

    Ooh that stuffing starter looks great! I need easy ways to add veggies to my diet since I’m lazy and live alone. I can’t even remember the last vegetable I’ve eaten since I lost my job right before Sandy. I wish I were kidding.

    Does your TJ tend to have long lines? I’ve heard the ones in NYC do.

    The stuffing mix is interesting. Where do u get that? I’m in a little podunk town and have no trader joes, no whole foods, costco is 2 hours away…I only have a walmart!!! Ugh

    We have my great-grandmother’s china that is teal, white and gold-plated. Pretty hideous combo if you ask me, but it’s tradition and we always say if someone breaks one, g-grandma is gonna haunt you forever. I think in my 30+ years on this earth, we have been very careful to not break a single dish.

    We have a set of silverware that we inherited from hubby’s grandma that we use on holidays. We don’t have special dishes though….in fact, hubby has to buy us a new set of dishes today because we just realized we are down to only 4 (mismatched) plates and Turkey Day is at our house tomorrow!

    Nah we keep it simple. For easy clean up- Chinet all the way baby! I would say Styrofoam- but then I’d be admitting to harming the Earth due to it’s almost never break down process in a landfill.. I can’t thnk of the term just yet..

    Oh I was gonna add to your post from yesterday- I got a horrific email yesterday telling me that there is now WOOD PULP in our food.. WTF?! I guess we should just start eating trees.. ugh.. loved the post!

    I have special Christmas dishes and we usually start using them on December 1st. If there are just a few of us for Thanksgiving (like there will be this year), I’ll use my wedding china.

    My mom brings out hers for the Chinese New Year reunion dinners – all matchy matchy – but these past couple of years we spent dinner with my brother in another state or have it at a restaurant.

    Stuffing starter is a great way to add veggies!! we don’t have TJ’s but I’ve seen something similar at Kroger. I soooooo wish we had a TJ’s!!
