We’re back up and running! But only temporarily. After spending 4 hours on the phone with Best Buy and Verizon this weekend, we have neither a refrigerator nor internet/TV–and won’t until March 19.  Unbelievable.  Needless to say, we will never buy anything from either again.  Period.

So after yesterday’s frustration, I had to visit my happy place–Wegmans! Ah, it makes everything better.  We stocked up on groceries for the week (not hard to do, given the lack of a fridge).  I bought a bunch of veggies and am trying to incorporate more into my lunches this week.

Lunch today was a huge salad with Sabra hummus and Wegmans’ mini pitas on the side.

In the salad:

– Baby spinach
– Carrots
– Celery
– Green beans
– Wegmans’ Organic balsamic vinegrette

These pitas are like little fluffy pillows! So soft and delicious…especially with Sabra.  This is the new(ish) lemon flavor.  I mixed a little into the salad too, and it was delicious.

We’re off to the movies to finally see Avatar (in 3D, but not Imax–sadly, we missed the boat on that one!).  Until next time…not sure when that will be exactly, but hopefully sooner rather than later!


Spike and I shopped up a storm today! We had really good luck finding all the pieces we needed for our new house at great holiday sales prices.  And everything will be delivered on the same day next week!

But first, breakfast…

I’m still feeling like a cold is coming on, so I’ve been chugging orange juice.

While we were out at the mall this afternoon, we picked up snacks…


His and hers ice cream from Maggie Moos.  His was pumpkin pie with heath bar, graham cracker and caramel, and hers was red velvet cake with brownie, almonds and pecans. Yum!


The future in-laws are visiting this weekend, so we met them for dinner at a new pizza place up the street from our new house–Coal Fire.  They got stuck in traffic, so while we were waiting Spike and I shared a calamari appetizer.


Spike also tried a new Sam Adams seasonal.  He liked it a lot and said it was a perfect lead-in to spring.


For our meal we split a grilled caesar salad (which the waiter warned us would be served warm).  It was really different.  I loved the grilled flavor of the romaine.  The bread on the side wasn’t bad, either. 😉


We also split a small pepperoni pizza.  Coal Fire’s ‘special’ sauce was slightly spicy and sweet, which went really well with the toppings.  And I love burnt pepperoni, so I was in heaven.

Sharing everything was a great plan–we got to try a lot of different flavors, but I definitely didn’t leave feeling too full.  We have a bunch of restaurant dinners coming up this week, so I’m trying to behave myself.

Happy early Valentine’s Day! Good night!
