So yesterday I came home to see a package at my front door. I don’t know about you, but I love seeing brown paper packages tied up with string at my front door step. Sorry, Fraulein Maria moment. Inside the package was a cookbook I ordered a few days ago. The cookbook is called Power […]
Alright winter, you’re really starting to wear on me this week. Looks like I might need to whip out one of these babies for tonight’s meal. SO THERE. *This is frozen pesto, btw. You know, a memory of warmer, happier times.
If any of you happened to grow up with me, be my friend, be my sister, give birth to me, date me, or marry me (hi Aaron!) chances are you’ve eaten chicken dorito with me. It was a household staple in my mom’s kitchen and not a single soul was ever left hungry or unsatisfied. […]
A blanket of white covers the city. I still had to work, oh what a pity. The heater and fireplace will work on overdrive. A 1 million dollar heating bill just to survive. I’m really okay with the snow, as long as I’m inside. Put me behind the wheel and I’ll immediately go blind. I’m […]
Well hello, Old Man Winter. I see you’ve brought some snow our way. And I hear you’re not done just yet. And that’s fine, but while I have you, would you mind calling Triple A for me in the morning when my lil ole car won’t make it to work? Oh, and would you please […]
Did anyone else take advantage of the enormous Banana Republic sale over the holidays? Now, I’m not a frequent BR shopper, but this sale, THIS SALE. In some cities it was 50% off of 50% off. WHAT? I was 100% thrilled. See what I did there? All this to say, I can now mark […]
Is it too late to eat black-eyed peas? Have I missed the boat on good fortune for the year? Is it over and done with? Should I throw in the towel? Hold up a white flag of surrender? Stop asking questions? You see, I bought some black-eyed peas for the new year, but we, uh, […]
I always forget how much I appreciate a big salad for dinner. They tend to be a lunchtime staple for me, and so often the idea of coming home after a long day to a plate of lettuce leafs lacks a bit of satisfaction appeal. Plus, it’s winter. We are supposed to be craving starches […]
I know, I know. This is the week of wellness. But you guys, we had our dearest pearest friends in from Florida, so there is the slightest chance this might have happened. Now, these aren’t just any fries. They are Oklahoma Joe’s fries. I can feel the forgiveness pouring in. I promise, saladville is tomorrow.
Well, it’s all over. The tree has been put away, we’ve said our goodbyes to family and friends, we’ve eaten our weight in turkey and green bean casserole. In short, it was great! *taking a deep breath, and maybe burping* Time to move forward! Time to ramp up the whole grains, the power foods, the […]
