Hot Roast Beef Sandwiches

29 Dec

Have you ever woken up in the morning and realized you were having one hell of a strange dream? I have, in fact, I did this morning. I think my weird dream was partly due to how much Star Wars: The Old Republic I’ve been playing the past few days, and the rest is due to my vivid and wild imagination… lol Bear with me if you don’t know much about Star Wars.

So basically I was following TJ around in a dream as he was trying to find information about targets he had to kill {remember, he’s a Bounty Hunter in SWTOR, so he was having to hunt down people and kill them in the game}. So I followed him to this giant aquarium thing that was above ground. The aquarium thing had pretty much everything the ocean would have, but it was on land… and it was freaking huge. Like, seriously huge. He ended up going inside the tank, but we had to be very careful because there was a shark inside. But, not just any shark. This shark was 5x larger than a Blue Whale. Maybe even bigger. We had to swim around and look for what he was after, but quickly get up to the top of the water and onto some rocks before the shark came near us so we wouldn’t get eaten.

Bizarre, right? Sad thing is, that’s not even in the top 10 of my “weirdest dreams” I’ve ever had list. {no, I don’t really have a list lol}

To top of the strange slumber, I got to wake up and go to the dentist to get my permanent crown put on. So exciting!!!


It was quick and painless though. The only sucky thing is that my mouth has to adjust to this new foreign object in it. And my tongue won’t leave the crown alone because it’s all like “What’s this??? It’s all smooth and different and new and I must touch it constantly!!”. I swear, my tongue has a mind of it’s own.

Bella drinking some water and her sister Penny munching on some food pellets.

So last night, as TJ was feeding my guinea pigs for me, he saw Bella {the brown one drinking from the water bottle in the picture} being a lazy butt. I’ve never seen her drinking water while laying down but with her butt in the air!! It was too cute for me not to take a picture of it.

Bella again, drinking from a different water bottle this time.

Isn’t she so cute?!

For dinner last night we, once again, had Hot Roast Beef Sandwiches. Talk about some serious yumminess! Since I’ve showed you all a picture of it, I realized I should share the recipe.

This is a great way to use up any leftover beef, mashed potatoes, and gravy you may have, and it really is delicious!

I hope you all enjoy this simple recipe that I learned from my momma!

Christmas Vacation in Full Swing

27 Dec

My Christmas vacation is finally in full swing! The past two days I’ve spent exactly how I’ve been waiting all semester to spend… staying up late, sleeping in late, and lots and lots of gaming!

TJ is here until January 2nd, when he has a late evening flight back up to Northern Cali so he can get back to work on January 3rd. But until then, it’s just he and I and the animals at the house because my Dad left early this morning to visit my sister and her fam in Texas.

It’s so nice to be able to spend a lot of time with him, and it’s made me realize how much I miss waking up next to him in the mornings. Unfortunately, we’re both crammed into my twin-size bed… and he’s 6’2″!! Poor guy haha

Yesterday TJ and I managed to get to 27 {my toon} and 26 {for his toon}. I play a Twi’lek Sith Sorcerer {Corruption spec… aka I’m a healer!} and TJ plays a Chiss Powertech {Advanced Prototype spec… aka he does uber deeps!}.

This is my Sith Sorcerer, Anira. Sorry the picture quality sucks, I had to take a picture of my computer screen with my camera =3

Today we have finally finished up quests on Nar Shadaa {with the exception of the bonus quests} and just got to Tatooine, the lovely desert planet.

Once again, sorry for the picture quality... =3

If you play video games/Star Wars, I really recommend playing Star Wars: The Old Republic. This game really pulls you in with the interactive cinematic stories, and helps you build a connection with your character with the light or dark side choices you can make with the quests.

So, other than playing video games, TJ and I have been eating leftovers from Christmas dinner. I decided to turn them into yummy Hot Roast Beef Sandwiches, just like my mom used to do with leftover roast beef, mashed potatoes, and gravy.

Sorry I’m not posting any recipes yet, but I do have some stuff waiting to be posted, but I’m saving them for the weekend ;) So you all will just have to be patient with me!

I hope you all are spending your Christmas/Winter breaks well!

β™₯ and harp strings,

How are you spending your Christmas/Winter break? What are you doing with your leftovers from Christmas dinner?
