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 chow.com. 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
