By Sunday I was feeling a little sluggish because I hadn’t worked out since Thursday. I started the morning again with my standard food and set out for a run. I ended up doing 6 1/2 miles at a 9ish mile pace. I still had a very big head cold going and this was the perfect way to clean out my sinuses.When I got back my Dad and I decided to make some beef jerky!! We marinated the meat over night in a soy and teriyaki mixture and put it in the dehydrator for around 6-7 hours. Some of the pieces of meat were thicker than others so we took things out as they were done. The beef jerky came out awesome!!! The next culinary feat of the day was making some mulled wine. It was actually really easy, we used spiced wine, a cinnamon stick, and a few cloves. My Mom and I finished off the mulled wine and played some backgammon. My Mom has been DESTROYING me in this game all week. Our tally right now is Megan 1, Mom about 11. Patheticcccc.
Dinner was AWESOME. My Dad made a bake ham and cut off some for me to just eat up in a pan. The glaze he uses is made out of Dr.Pepper so I wanted to pass on it. He made the BESTTTTT baked sweet potato. I basically melted into the potato. He also knows I have been eating a lot of kale lately so he made some kale with almond slivers, yummm. I inhaled this meal in about 3 minutes.Next up is Christmas Eve!!!!

Mmm … mulled wine is so good! I would have made some, but alcohol in any form hasn’t appealed to me since returning from Hawaii!
Yea I doubt I will want anything to do with booze once I return to the real world from my parents.
