Can't Sleep

Every once in awhile I get a night like this... doesn't happen very often, luckily. Sure makes the next morning hard!
Sandie Kittie got up with me and is purring away, lying in her usual spot between me and the computer keeping me company. Here's a snapshot of Dennis and Sandie Kittie being scary monsters!Scared? (say yes, it will make them happy.)
I have not exercised at all since my update on Sunday. I haven't made the time, I guess. The days are going by so fast and they are filled to the brim with all kinds of things.
I made a weight watcher dinner tonight that Trish put together from a couple of cookbooks. It's a Keeper! It was for Flank Steak and Chimichurri Sauce, a Roasted Broccoli with Cumin-Chipotle Butter, and a fresh fruit dessert. Click HERE for all the details. I had to use Rib-eye steak (darn it all) instead of Flank Steak, but other than that I did it just like the recipe. I even made the Chimichurri sauce.
I started eating before I thought about pictures, Oops!, you can see the chimichurri sauce clinging to my fork, lol. My mouth was so SO happy with all the different tastes going on in this meal. My tongue was definitely NOT bored.
So good!

See my new "bun pan"? It's part of a birthday present to me. Trish gave me a gift card to a kitchen wonderland called Orson Gygi and this is one of the items I picked. I also got a plastic cover for it and nifty liners that fit right in. I LOVE it. Many more uses I'm sure. It's the size of a 1/4 sheetcake. I was originally thinking I would use the bun pan for cinnamon rolls, but this purpose fits my current goals better, right? Oh, and I got another cookbook holder, because I am impulsive and just had to see if I like this one better than my other one. I actually used them both tonight. I am glad I'm impulsive, I like them both, lol. Thank you for my presents!! The shopping trip was awesome, and I'm very happy with my new bun pan and cookbook holder!! Perfect Present!
Well, I shall try to get some rest before morning. I'm feeling like I might actually sleep now.

I've been meaning to ask you if you went to Orson Gygi yet. It's kitchen nirvana just like I said, huh? LOL
I'm so glad you had fun with it and got some things you love.
Sorry you can't sleep. :( If you feel another bout of insomnia coming on I'll let you borrow Jaxon for the day. That should solve it. I know I could just about go to sleep any time of the day or night. I had to take the van in for a flat repair yesterday and nearly fell asleep in the waiting area.
I stopped for some cold caffeine AKA:Diet Coke on my way home so I could get through dinner and the birthday party. LOL
Your dinner looks as yummy as I remember. Chimichurri sauce is divine.

I had a couple of nights like that last weekend. Than I couldn't sleep Sunday night so Monday was definately a Monday at work.

Your dinner look really delicious.

YES!! Dennis and Sandie Kitty look very scary!

Trish - Yep, just like you said, kitchen nirvana! Thanks again, it was fun. I'm glad I can nap if I need to and don't need to worry about my toddler tonight!
Amy _ Lol, today felt like a Monday. I think I'm getting sick! Home by 5:30 tonight and probably going to snuggle and take more medicine. My throat is sore and I'm getting body aches to go with my headache. Yuck!

The big plunge...
