When I opened the door to take Murphy for his afternoon walk, I did not expect to see snow on the ground. Where did those come from? First flakes of the year! 😯
But, now, I think winter is “officially” here. Wicked bummer. But, I guess I could deal with a White Christmas!
Despite the wintery weather, the pug couldn’t wait to get outside and stretch his little doggie legs.
So, Mal and I headed out for a 45-minute walk with him around the neighborhood. I was chilly by the end, but it wasn’t that bad. Maybe I finally learned how to properly dress for winter? 😉
It was dinnertime when we returned, so I whipped up a very convenient meal. I’m not sure it gets any easier than this!
I made a box of rice pilaf on the stovetop.
Nuked some broccoli florets in the microwave. (Just add a splash of water, cover, and cook on high for 3 minutes.)
Added about a tablespoon of olive oil + two tablespoons of Wildtree Scampi Blend + 3/4 of pound of shrimp to a skillet.
Then, I tossed it all together with some spring mix.
Viola! Easiest meal ever!
Off to look for something sweet!
Tomorrow is (Cookie) FRIDAY!!!
