I’m truly pathetic.
Last evening, Mr. Prevention and I were catching up with the DVR. He’s over the moon that the show 24 is back…for now. For 12 hours vs. 24, but he’s still really pumped. I made it through the first hour, but during the second, I was passed out and snoring (so he says). It was 8:45pm. I didn’t wake-up until the show was over at 9:30 and promptly retreated to bed for the night. I read about 12 words on my Kindle before truly calling it quits for the day.
Pregnancy has been difficult for Mr. P — he claims my snoring is getting worse “by the day” and so after being woken up by him for the 71st time by 1:30am, I very begrudgingly sleep-walked my way to our guest bedroom…in the basement. Thankfully, 1:30am to 6:30am was a deep sleep and definitely what I needed. Except…I don’t want to sleep in the basement for the next 22 weeks.
As Mr. P and I met in the master bathroom to get ready for the day, I spewed off something along the lines of, “You get to drink, your clothes fit, you don’t snap, crackle, and pop like an old lady, and darn it, I am not going to be the one stuck in the basement indefinitely. I’M GROWING YOUR CHILD!”
Crickets, I tell you. He had no rebuttal to that rant and explanation of my RIGHTS!
What has my life come to?
Tonight? No motivation to cook, despite reeeally wanting something other than leftovers. However, leftovers are all the sweeter when someone else heats them up and serve them to you (thanks, hubz). Better yet, meals like Greek Nachos require no cooking or heating at all. Fact: these are now in a regular rotation in my kitchen. LOVE them.
- 45 pita chips
- ¾ cup hummus
- 2 Roma tomatoes, diced
- ½ English cucumber, peeled, seeds removed, diced
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 Tbsp red wine vinegar
- ¼ tsp salt and black pepper, to taste
- ¼ cup feta, crumbled
- Spread 1 scant teaspoon hummus on each pita chip and arrange in a single layer on a plate.
- In a medium bowl, combine the diced tomato and cucumber. Drizzle with olive oil and vinegar; toss well. Sprinkle in the salt, pepper, and feta; toss and distribute over the pita chips. Serve immediately.
This week is going pretty quickly and today? EIGHTY-TWO DEGREES!!! Overjoyed 🙂
