Alan has white knighted (yeah, I’m looking at YOU, stupid car battery) it 3 times in the last 6 days. That’s a pretty high standard he’s setting for himself 🙂 I also got a new garbage disposal, AND, he cleaned the kitchen for me last night. It needed to be cleaned because I spend a ridiculous amount of time in there cooking super awesome foods. Remember that one time a looooong time ago (my last post) that I talked about trying the sausage spaghetti squash? Yeah, it was amazing. I made it again last night with some tweaks, obviously, and it was still just as awesome. I also tried a different blackberry cobbler. Strangely, after using loads of sugar this time, neither of the kids would touch it. Which makes me part proud and part horrified. It’s sugar!! Ah well.
This past weekend we finally got out to our happy hour sushi place. I don’t know that I’d ever want to eat there during non-happy hour prices. Geez. Thankfully, it’s stupid good so I just ignore it. You know, until the credit card bill comes. Then I cringe. Sunday was spent being lazy and watching the Cowboys actually win. Well, I was lazy. Alan was being heroic and installing the disposal. I had a twinge of feeling guilty for staying home to watch the whole game before heading down to get the boys, and then saw mom post pictures of the boys at a Cat in the Hat play. That immediately squashed (mmmm, squash) the guilt and I had another beer.
Speaking of beer, I should stop drinking that. And eating the chips. And donuts. And get back in the gym for real. Stupid Halloween candy… I may be carting some of that up to Alan’s work today to get it out of my house. Which means I should get off here and get ready for that whole gym thing. And getting Colin to school. That’s a lot of “and.”
You are brave… doing spaghetti squash more than once! I tried it a zillion years ago, and found it to be one of my lesser triumphs. Maybe it is the fact that the word “squash” sends Donny into spasms of the ewewewies.
My latest actual triumph has been lamb chops on the grill. Marinated in red wine vinegar, fresh rosemary, garlic, salt, pepper and a bit of olive oil… YUM. If you aren’t a fan of lamb, you might not even notice…
Have a great week!
I was a bit tentative about the squash too, but it actually came out somewhere between spaghetti noodles (hence the name…) and sauerkraut (texture-wise). No real flavor of its own, but the dishes were reaally tasty!
