the hubs and i did many home improvements this weekend which means we ate a lot of pizza and drank a lot of beer. i’ll be de-bloating this week in anticipation of an upcoming baby shower. you know, the kind where you are excited to see everyone but wish you looked like you did the last time they saw you ten years ago? so this week will be baked chicken and fruit. and tanning lotion if i feel ambitious. know any secrets on getting michelle obama arms in five days?

some nibbles until i see you next time

i took a cue from smitten kitchen’s blog and topped my frozen california pizza kitchen pizza with yellow squash and zucchini plus red and black pepper.

David Lebovitz’s Guinness–Milk Chocolate Ice Cream via this was the first show down between me and my $20 wal-mart ice cream maker. it won. or i lost? both? it didn’t freeze. i used table salt instead of rock salt. operator error? cheap contraption? oh well. i let it freeze in a bowl and scooped it up just fine. tasted like the best fudgsicle. but with raspberries!

what was left of my death row meal. one of them. i’m up to three. i hope i don’t have to make a choice one day. anyway, this recipe was given to me as a wedding present. only one other person has it (cough, bday, cough, joh) so i can’t share it here. let’s just say you mix mascarpone cheese, cream cheese, spinach and a few others and mound it on top of salmon (i also used a piece of basa here for the hubs). on top of THAT a breadcrumb butter parm mixture and bake. i subbed panko and it was crusty delish.

sigh….and now….suffrage

    The next time you send a coughcough toward this apartment, direct it at Jesse. He STILL hasn’t made it for me. I’ve only got 10 months left of being 25, here!!! :)

    I’m planning to e-mail NannyLady to get her Guinness Ice Cream recipe. I’ll try it in the Cuisinart Ice Cream maker and tell you how it is. Chocolate peppermint was/is OUTSTANDING.

    in all, this recipe is colossal yum. :) even the CPK frozen pizza. One of my vices.

    Ok with all this talk about ice cream between you and joh, I am probably going to have break down and buy an ice cream maker….sigh.
    P.S. Table salt should work the same as rock salt. It actually would lower the temp even more because its so much smaller and dissolves faster.
