Momma Says “Red Meat and Chocolate!”

6 Mar

 

I may officially be turning into my mother. When we used to go on mini-vacations {every other month or so} our treat to each other would be red meat and chocolate… Tonight, that is exactly what I wanted! And, let me tell you, that is exactly what I got! Now, my mother and I differ on how we like our meat cooked. She will send a steak back if it even remotely “moo’s” at her … I on the other hand, like it to “moo” at me, I just don’t want it to run off the plate!

 

 

You’re viewing the best meal I’ve cooked in months!! Medium-Rare Filet {ok, the foodie bf grilled that for me}, creamed spinach, and garlic whipped potatoes. And, yes… I’m too lazy to wash wine glasses, so those are good ol’ juice glasses. Wine tastes the same no matter what glass it comes in!  And, further back is a nice basket of warm french bread. Who’s a good domestic goddess? Yes, that would be me! And, to top it all off .. I’ve got brownies baking in the oven with some Vanilla-Bean Ice Cream in the freezer waiting to be added to the bowl! Goodness… I deserve and award tonight! {ha ha}

 

Anyhow, I hope you all are enjoying your weekend. I have to tell you, it is so nice to relax and be lazy and enjoy this beautiful weather we are having right now. I can only hope that full-spring gets here soon, soon, soon! I’m ready to put the top down, put some big sunglasses on, turn the girly music up, and sing at the top of my lungs!! Night ya’ll

 

By the way … you can find recipes for the potatoes and spinach on my blog  HERE and HERE … Enjoy!

Grocery Pick-Up … Yes, Please!

10 Feb

 

Well, hello! I miss you blog. Honestly, it’s been days since I have cooked a meal. Tonight it’s nearly 12:30 and I just sat down to eat a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I’m craving some really good, belly filling, heart warming food. I’m going to have to break down tomorrow and schedule time to cook a dinner… my body needs something that isn’t from a fast food line, a jar, or plastic container.

 

I also found the most amazing amenity today… my grocery store will now allow you to order your groceries online, they will “shop them,” and will have them patiently waiting in a cooler for your arrival at the pick-up lane. Now, I’m not THAT busy that I can’t grocery shop. In fact, I love to grocery shop. But… just imagine the possibilities. And… you will never EVER believe how much this little service costs….

 

Come on, try to guess… work with me here. How much would you pay for a service like that?

 

Let me tell you, I thought I was reading it wrong… $4.95 .. ARE YOU KIDDING ME. I would pay $4.95 just to not have to park my car near the others and risk door-dings! $4.95 … I’m all over $4.95! And, the first time is FREE… FREE… FREE. You don’t have to tell me twice.

 

Tonight … in my exhausted stooper … I’m ordering groceries online! Wahoo.. I’ll let you know how this turns out! Night Ya’ll {And, I promise .. a dinner of some sort tomorrow!}

Bring Me the Buns!

26 Jan

 

I’m told that if I ask politely, the grocery store will order special things for me. If this is the truth, I’m so excited. You see, I have this problem … a few weeks ago, I told you about the most amazing hot dog buns ever invented {Snuggles} and today I was told the grocery store near my house was no longer carrying them. So, I headed 25 minutes to Publix {they always have them} where the lady in the bakery told me they are discontinued {there is no way this is possible} … Ugh. I know you are thinking, I’m out of my mind and that “it’s just a hot dog bun” but I’m telling you: they are amazing! I was so disappointed – tonight I was going to make chili cheese dogs with the leftover chili from last night {I know, I know. How domestic of me.} In the end, I settled for the regular hot dog buns, but  just don’t think they hold in the chili as well as the U-shaped Snuggles. And, since they are made with more of a pita texture they don’t burn when you try to toast them in the oven. The regular ones did ok though and I felt proud to actually use my leftovers for another purpose! {go me}

 

On a completely different note: I’m a cheese lover. While at Publix, I was able to snag some of my favorite cheese; Port Salut. I adore this as a snack on some warmed up French bread with some salami. Yum. If you haven’t tried it, I really suggest you do. It’s ah’mazing! {and will be in my belly for lunch tomorrow, if I can wait that long} … Night ya’ll!
