I must be crazy!

It's -29C (-42C with the wind) and I'm going out in it! Walking 0.9km to the big gym by my house to run on the treadmill (or the track, but I don't like running in circles). Egad.

Brunch with my fave peeps, S & L and my S at 1130. I need to bake L some more cookies since the Cookie Monster mysteriously broke into my house and ate the last ones! L is my biggest fan when it comes to cookies (gingersnaps, especially). I can get pretty much whatever I want if there are cookies involved. =P

Did a HUGE grocery shop last night and $403 later...I have a fridge and freezer full of food. Overnight I made a chicken taco soup in the crock pot (onion, celery, red pepper, drained and rinsed black beans & red kidney beans, 1 TB chili powder, 1 TB Epicure Taco Seasoning, 1 can kernel corn, 1 skinless bone-in chicken breast and a 28 oz can of diced tomatoes with a sploosh of chicken broth). My house smells soooooo good, I need to get out of here! I'll take the chicken off the bone and shred it when I get home from my run.

After brunch, I'm going to make another vat of pasta sauce to use in veggie lasagna (I'm going to use sliced zucchini instead of noodles) and a batch of meatballs. I also bought the ingredients for corn chowdah (I may add a can of crab, too). I've got a crazy week ahead of me: 6 shifts in a row (I usually only do 4) AND a short shift (evenings to days) right smack in the middle. I've also got a bunch of people coming over on Monday night for our work Christmas party. EGAD!

Must run now...I'll let you know how it goes. Keep warm, wherever you are!
