Quick Gift Idea

i realized last night that i haven't really been cooking much. poor E, i haven't felt like making dinner with all the cooking for clients and cookie baking. we had ramen for dinner last night. tonight, i have something better planned (i.e. healthier). i guess because of my lack of cooking i haven't been as good about posting. i'm working on that too.

i had a really good lunch today. it was super quick and easy too. i call it a mexican bowl. i basically threw in a bunch of stuff i had on hand into a bowl, popped it into the microwave and voila! lunch in a flash.

this bowl contained some leftover cooked brown basmati rice, black beans, some shredded rotisserie chicken, a couple of tablespoons of salsa, and some spices (cumin, chili powder, and garlic powder). it doesn't look very pretty but it was yummy!

for dessert i had 2 clementines and 1 italian wedding cookie. i figured i should have my cookie now before the gym so i can sweat it off.

i also have a good quick gift idea. package up some baked goods and have them on hand to give out as gifts. they are also great to have on hand in the instance that someone brings a gift for you and you didn't have one for them:)

i make a couple up with italian wedding cookies and spiced nuts. after i make my chocolate truffles and chocolate thin mints, i'll throw those in too. check out these cute chinese takeout boxes i found at michaels. i got some with snowmen, some with santas, and some that look like candy canes.
