Ho, Ho, Ho!

T-minus six hours until Christymisty!

Last night before work I had a date with PB. It looks a little ominous out there by its lonesome.

Last night at work, I ordered a bowl of black bean soup (sorry for the horrible picture):

I also got some shrimp dumplings, which are pretty much invisible due to the glare. Sorry!

I had some blackberries when I got home.

This morning we woke up very early and got breakfast before the clock struck 8. Who am I and what have I done with Katie?

Bagel with lox... I probably ate about 1/20 of that cream cheese.

It was a morning for pie! Pecan pie is Ari's favorite... I'm not such a fan so I didn't have any.

A couple hours later I took Megan's suggestion and heated up this Clif bar. Very good! Ari had a bite, but the top was too "white and creamy" for him.

I hauled tail back to Manhatty and was greated by this lovely rum cake. My babysitter, who is from Jamaica, used to make this for me when I was little. So. Good. I felt like Proust and tasted my childhood as soon as I had a bite!

I had a little sliver, which I spread out to look like teeth. Santa has to chew his cookies with something!

We got Chinese food for lunch, which I've been craving. Bad choice. This place used to be delicious, but it was so bad. No flavor at all.

They were shelling a lot of beans... I discretely (although my idea of "discretion" has been greatly blurred since I became a blogger) snapped a photo...

I ordered a lunch special that started with a bowl of miso soup (thick and gluey):

A greasy spring roll:

Mushroom tofu and brown rice. I literally had one bite and lost my appetite, but I may not be able to blame that all on the food. I brought it home, so maybe I'll eat it later.

The tea was good! I had almost that whole pot to myself.

Off to find some holiday cheer, and make some gingerbread cookies with the fam. Have a great and magical night!

I'll have to try heating my Clif bars. I bought a few pumpkin ones when they first came out and really didn't care for them. Maybe I'll like them hot.

Enjoy your holiday!
