More Halloween Shenanigans...

Sunday, November 2, 2008

I don't know about you guys, but this was by far my favorite Halloween ever! We had so much fun. We had two of our best "couple" friends over for some pre-going out fun. We sat around and played cards, ate and drank pumpkin beer! Everybody's costumes looked so awesome.

Sorry for the blurry/awkwardly-colored pic. It was on a timer.

Kris's costume was my favorite. He was pretty much dressed as a 70s pornstar. It was hilarious.

We didn't end up going out to the bars until 11:30 or so, which was nice because it didn't give us alot of time before bar close to get drunk & stupid. Everybody was still walking straight by the end of the night, and we had a sober driver so it was all good.

The next day we all went out for lunch at Country Kitchen here in town. :-) I got the chicken bacon pepper melt with fries. I needed something a little greasy! Why is it that you just crave fried foods the day after drinking??! I only ate half of it though, and brought the rest home for later.

The day yesterday was spent lounging around watching college football, knitting and snacking on leftovers from Friday night's appetizer spread. By the time dinnertime rolled around, I wasn't all that hungry, so I just made a nice, light Greek Salad w/ feta cheese, olives, chicken and red onions. YUM.

Kris and I fell asleep on the couch watching Superbad on Starz. (That movie is HILARIOUS!). We woke up around midnight and finally made our way to the bedroom. I slept VERY good last night.

This morning Kris woke us up for church. He thought he was waking us up at 9:30, but it was actually 8:30 because we had forgotten to roll back our clocks. But that gave us time to make a nice breakfast before church. Our friends Paco & Stacia were telling us about these oatmeal pancakes that they make alot, so I decided to try them!!

I didn't exactly measure the ingredients... but all it is is oatmeal (I used about 2 cups) mixed with egg whites (just enough so that the 'batter' is the consistency of watery cooked oatmeal). I also added a tablespoon of peanut butter and tablespoon of apple butter to the batter.

Spoon them out onto a frying pan, cook a couple minutes on each side....

And, voila! Delicious, high-protein oatmeal pancakes.

I topped mine with sugar free maple syrup and bananas. YUM.

Okay, off to church! I love Sundays!
