Chopped premier tonight.
You didn’t know?
I’m a Chopped fool.
. . . in honor of this say premier - listen to my little story.
. . . creepy smile for effect.
Tonight’s dinner was suppose to go a little something like this . .
Delicious Vodka Tomatoe Sauce - a major splurge at $6.95 a bottle.
Zuchinni and mushrooms.
anddd fresh parm.
Tonight’s dinner went a little something like this. . .
I need to start boiling water.
(10 minutes later).
I’m going to be starved if I don’t start boiling that water.
(water boiling, time for pasta).
Crap! No pasta?! I always have pasta! How did I miss that!?
Box of Mac and Cheese?
Boil noodles and call it good.
But I really wanted sphagetti and those Mac and Cheese noodles taste like chalkboard. Get over yourself.
Fine Mac and Cheese noodles it is.
(Gross noodles into boiling water - onto zucchini).
I wonder if I could eat this whole thing?
That would be a lot of zucchini. . .
ZUCCHINI NOODLES! I’ve totally seen that on Pintrest.
But what about my Mac and Cheese noodles?
I can’t just throw them away.
. . . and SO in honor of Chopped this gal used what was in her basket. Okay. Maybe I first went the easy route to the Mac and Cheese – chalkboard noodles. .
but I came around right?
. . . welcome to the mind of Kaelyn.
because last night this happened. . .
Vanilla rolled in sprinkles.
Gah. I love feeling like a little kid.
And yes, that little cone ends up in the trashcan but seriously – who wants to eat ice cream with a spoon?
I think I saw gf cones in the grocery store once.
Maybe I can bring my own?
Our favorite ice cream place is open all year round. Crazyyy.
We have been good and waited until Spring for our favorite treat . .
We were at a Wilderness, Wildness, and Biodiversity talk last night on campus and decided it was officially time to let ice cream season begin.
Big Dipper is right near campus and we had some surprise Easter money,
plus it was sunny and warm all day.
An equation for ice cream I think SO!
We waited in line behind 20 people. SHH counted.
. . . roughly a half an hour. This place is -the place- for ice cream.
. . . they were featuring maple bacon ice cream. . .Say WHAT?
And check out that full moon. . .
Go feel like a little kid and enjoy some vanilla ice cream,
rolled in sprinkles, on a sugar cone.
Oh HEY delicious corn bread numero tres.
(Find the frist one here and another one here)
This gals got a thing for cornbread.
This one is the best so far.
Third time is the charm?
I’m a chili and cornbread girl at heart.
Seriously. There is nothing better then a home with chili slowly cooking away during the day (crockpot) filling your home with complex aromas of tomatoes, chili spices, and the expectation of deliciousness to follow.
And lets just put this out there. . . you can’t have chili without cornbread.
Lucky you. I have landed on the mother of all gf skillet cornbread’s and the most delicious chili – to date. It’s SHH approved and full of all kinds of yummies.
Yesterday my big brother got engaged.
Does this time change mess with you as much as it messes with me?
…as I casually rolled out of bed at 9:30 this AM.
My body feels about an hour behind for the first week. It takes some adjusting.
What certainly doesn’t take adjusting is the fact that it is now light out until about 8:30? Or is it 7:30. . No I definitely think it’s 8:30.
Point being, last night SHH and I took a great walk after dinner – because it was STILL light out! Awesome.
The story gets better.
We saw this chick walking to the dumpster with a huge plant in her hands.
“Do you think she’s dumping that!?!”
I’m on this kick for living things in our house and since we can’t have a puppy, plants will do. We casually walked up our stairs, because we didn’t want this chick to be totally creeped out that we were running to the dumpster to steal the plant she apparently wanted to die . . . take that back . . .two plants she wanted to die.
