Cereal Excuse


I’ve been waiting for an excuse for a cereal night. Mostly because I wanted to drizzle this all over my dinner:


That would be a Christmas gift from my sister. It reminds me of the Peanut Butter & Co peanut butter that my college roommate and I would just eat out of the jar with a spoon. Happy memories.

So this afternoon was my company’s Christmas New Year’s party. Things were really busy at the end of the year, so they just moved it to January. I kind of like the concept because I had forgotten all about it and was pleasantly surprised when I got to leave my desk at 3:30 and drink wine. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but they actually had a huge spread of food. I made a small plate of prime rib, baked beans, mac + cheese, goat cheese, and a great bacon-wrapped scallop. T’was a nice break in the day and a great way to mentally say goodbye to my workplace (although I’ll obviously be back all the time because Matt goes to school there!)

I had plans to meet a friend for a drink after work, so I went and enjoyed a beer and girl talk. I had a Fat Tire 1554 – a beer I had completely forgotten about and love! It’s a Belgian black ale, and it’s perfectly nutty and slightly sweet.

The late afternoon party made for the perfect cereal night. Cinnamon puffins, shredded squares, cinnamon pb, banana, and almond milk = my dream dinner.


We’re one day closer to a long weekend, my friends. Goodnight.

    I’ve definitely tried to devise methods to consume more peanut butter. I have one hanging out in the fridge that is just beyond. Short of gorging, slow and steady will have to win the race.

    I’ve seen that brand of PB a few times on different blogs and every time it makes my mouth water! I really need to make an investment for myself… Mixed with some cereal or oats for bfast, slathered between two pieces of bread with some jelly for lunch, or melted on top of some ice cream sounds like a great way to end the da [mmm] 😀
