A random weekend
Is it really Monday again?
Friday was a triumphant day. I got the office 100% done. I don't ever remember it looking that good since we transformed it from a guest room to an office. I thought everything just levitated, there's apparently a floor under there. The Mr almost pooped himself. We just kept occasionally looking in there and smiling or sitting in the chair. I know, sad.
Saturday I had to make a test batch of the mac and cheese I'm making for Easter. It's Hominy Grill in Charleston's recipe. For our batch, I used whole wheat pasta, used 2% milk and cut the salt in half to see how it would taste. See, my family likes everything from chain restaurants and therefore full of salt. Our tastebuds can't quite handle that anymore. It turned out good...
I used mild and sharp cheddar and havarti. I think for Easter, I'll do all sharp and either stick with havarti or use fontina and I'll have to use all of the salt because while it's good for our tastes, my family would leave that shizz in the bowl. Sigh. So I'll just have a little bit. I'm making it because otherwise I'd be having a ham slice and a cheeseball and cracker. My aunt makes these cheesy potatoes that everyone loves but I don't because she uses a buttload of sour cream. (Remember, I hate tang...hence no yogurt straight up or sour cream) I suspect I will have wished I just made the Velveeta Shells and cheese and be done with it.
I rarely have to try the latest holiday fad but being a life long Cadbury Egg fan (though I feel I'm about done with them...they don't taste quite right), we grabbed some of these Creme Egg Cookies.
I did not fall for this crap.
I guess the egg nog people are trying to figure out how to market it for other holidays. Though I sense had it been the light version, the Mr would've been all over it.
This was the best thing I've seen in a long time.
I thought it was funny as I was looking for a stainless steel funnel to replace my plastic one, Amazon showed me this...
Sunday we had our usual jazzy brunch, chilled a bit, went into the office and laid on the floor...because we can now. Then after a peek on Old Navy.com, I saw some shirts that might be good for summer vacay so we headed to the store so I could try them on. I got a nice little haul for $50.
The Mr tried on some shirts in the store and the ones we liked we bought online so we could buy them in the tall section since they don't sell those in store.
We stopped by the grocery and when we got home we got to our lower body workout. It was later than we'd hoped and we still had a lot of crap ahead of us. I made dinner and got this together while the Mr made his lunch, switched out dishes and cut my veggies for the week.
Whew! Now I'm ready to collapse!
What did you guys do this weekend?
