i'm dreaming of a white christmas

Happy Christmas Eve blogland! I'm so excited to give my gifts to the very special people in my life and spend the next few days surrounded by them. And the baking, my gosh, I can't get enough! Isn't this just the most wonderful time of the year? But let's get down to business :)... it's been almost 12 hours since my last post. Definitely time to catch up!
My health-nut grandma and her favorite store on earth. We only got to catching up for only about an hour before we couldn't wait any longer ;) and headed down the street from her house to the health food store, Mrs. Greens.
I mean, do ya blame us?! Just look! They don't mess around.
After about an hour of browsing and purchasing some new products so that my grandmother could spoil her granddaughter a bit we made it back home to enjoy our take-out. She made her own meal from the salad bar, complete with greens, bean salad, shredded carrots taboulleh, rice, baked tofu, and a spring roll. They really have a great selection there.
I, on the other hand, went to the hot counter and ordered a Chicken Fajita wrap. Inside was organic white chicken, peppers, brown rice, salsa, and spicy monterey jack cheese. I also got some extra salsa for the side... which seeped into the picture and probably looks like oily fat, it's not ;). It had the perfect amount of kick and was oh so satisfying.
This morning I awoke bright and early and very ready to take on the 24th of December :). I ran downstairs to make a bowl of my PB Pumpkin Banana Oatmeal with my new steel-cut oats that my grandma bought for me yesterday. They were delicious, as expected, and eaten alongside the daily Green Tea. I took my time enjoying breakfast, checked my favorite blogs, and then got ready to go to my French tutor... ce que'est un bon matin, non?
Gosh, the French language is so beautiful, I cannot believe I'll be practicing it firsthand so soon! Anyway, I ran a few Xmas day errands after tutoring so by the time I got back I home I was s-t-a-r-v-ing. I quickly went into my pantry and pulled out one of my favorite Amy's soups, Lentil Vegetable. These are so convenient, so very delicious, and perfect for a complete lunch in just a few minutes!
Then, I proceeded to eat the contents of the entire can, hehe, and two clementines for dessert. Yum, yum, such a good lunch! I've got to go wrap my presents, I obviously like waiting until the last-minute like Sagan :), and then go to my cousins house for some celebrating and our midnight gift exchange. It's a Mexican tradition, and as far as I know, Latin American as well. I probably won't be blogging until tomorrow evening, after the Christmas party with my mom's family, so I'd like to wish everyone a very very happy holiday! I hope it's filled with good people, good conversation, and, as always, good food! ;) Love to all!
