Tonight I’m in mega-cleaning mode.  We have company coming tomorrow, and then more coming later this weekend.   Between that and packing to move into our first house next week, there’s much that still needs to be done. Good thing I’ve had all week off. 🙂

After shoveling both our cars out AGAIN this afternoon, dinner was half leftover and half new.  We warmed up some buffalo chicken pizza that I made the other night to use up our non-Super Bowl dip ingredients (well, Spike warmed his up–I prefer mine cold).

Before and after…


This was really simple–3 chicken breasts, shredded, mixed with a bottle of Frank’s buffalo wing sauce and topped with part-skim mozzarella.  Yes, I used the entire bottle and it was a HUGE mistake.  It was way too spicy, even for us.  The dough came from Wegmans (where else?).

I wanted to use up the rest of the sweet potatoes, along with some brussels sprouts we picked up yesterday, so we roasted both in some olive oil and seasonings.

Going in…

Ready to eat!

Some of the outsides peeled off to make crunchy little brussels chips! Yum.

Good night!



The snow has started falling, and I already got the alert that work is closed tomorrow.  For the 4th day in a row!

This morning we ventured out to the grocery store, and as expected, it was pretty picked over.  We got what we needed, though, and while we were out running errands we picked up lunch.

Jimmy John’s! I got this sandwich–the beach club, no mayo–a bunch of times last year while I was in grad school.  The best parts are the avocado spread and the sprouts.

I did some work this afternoon, and a quick 40 minutes on the elliptical, and before I knew it, it was dinnertime! I picked up some sweet potatoes at the grocery store this morning just for this:

Kath’s sweet potato fries! I was so psyched to try these.  I sprinkled these with montreal steak seasoning, baked for 20-ish minutes, and they came out perfect!

Also on the menu was a Dr. Praeger’s California veggie burger.  I like these a lot–the flavor is excellent, and I like that there are actual chunks of veggies visible in it.  The only drawback is that it doesn’t hold up well when I cook it on the Foreman grill.  It gets kind of mushy and falls apart.  But it’s still delicious!

Almost time for LOST…gotta run! Good night!
