Some of my favorite days are spent being lazy around the house. Yesterday we did exactly that to celebrate our second anniversary! This year, we're saving money (meaning no NYLO hotel) and we didn't take off work (meaning no staying out late), so we decided to make the best of our Tuesday anniversary by remaking our wedding dinner and dine living-room-picnic-style.
I made waffles with a hint of pumpkin spice and topped them with little Reeses, just like our wedding waffle bar. We drank hot chocolate in our Disney wedding gift mugs from my friend Veronica!
I cooked..well, "unfroze" a package of breakfast sausage, potatoes and peppers. Added in some eggs and they made a great instant breakfast taco mixture.
Of course, we had to have our Whataburger breakfasts of choice for dinner too (Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit for me and Sausage Egg and Cheese Biscuit for him)! When we got married, Whataburger was kind enough to make us fresh breakfast for our guests, despite not serving it in restaurants after 11 a.m. Yesterday, I had to improvise a bit.
I bought our breakfast biscuits around 7:45 a.m., right before I got to work. I stored them in our office fridge until I left for home. Once there, I kept them refrigerated until right before dinner was served. Taking a part each piece of the sandwiches, I warmed everything up individually in the microwave. I'm sure there's a better was to do it in the oven, but I didn't want to chance me burning them!
They turned out just as delicious as ever, as did everything else! We were so full when we were done eating, we actually took a nap. A nap! At 7:00 at night.
To top off the meal, I made some funfetti cupcakes...which we didn't eat until much later in the night. They definitely didn't taste anything like the wonderful homemade cake that my friend Lupita's mom made for our wedding, but it was a nice bit of nostalgia to add to the other foods.
We set up our futon mattress on the living room floor and picnicked right in front of our couch. Nothing spilled, but having mugs of hot chocolate, cups of milk and plates full of food (and syrup) was not the easiest thing to do!
We had such a great evening together! Before dinner, we dusted off our wedding exit clothes and snapped a few pictures. I love my "groom" and some of the silly traditions we're creating together.
