UPDATE: I did not make it to the next round – but thanks to everyone who voted for me! 😀
I find out if I made it to the next round of Project Food Buzz – a big thank you to everyone who voted for me! 😀
If I make it to the next round, you have to make a luxurious dinner – what is the most luxurious dinner you’ve had?
I worked at a restaurant that had the best lobster bisque – they sold it for $7 a cup, and for another $7 dollars you could add lump lobster meat, and for another $3 dollars, a small shot of sherry to pour into the soup to kick it up another notch – I cannot tell you how many $17 cups of soup I sold when I described to the customers how much better the soup was with lobster meat and sherry! (okay, I may not have told them exactly how much “enhancing” their soup would cost!)
As I was driving to work yesterday, I realized that I had put together my lunch, but not a thing for my breakfast! I stopped at Panera and got their “power” breakfast sandwich on multi-grain bread.
First off, since it was off the panini press and put in a bag, by the time I got to work, my bread was a bit soggy. So I put it in our toaster oven at work for a couple minutes which worked wonders.
The verdict? Eh, it was okay. Caloriecount gives it a C- grade for being high in cholesterol. I wasn’t sure it was going to be filling, but it was. But for $4 bucks, I wished I would have made mine at home!
I ended up doing the elliptical for 45 minutes during lunch – although since its so nice today, I think I may need to walk at lunch!
I cannot stress how much I love having a full kitchen at work! Yesterday I kicked up my leftover beef and broccoli take out from the night before. I added red, yellow and orange peppers, more broccoli and some noodles:
The package said to put in boiling water for three minutes and then add to your favorite stir fry. I did that exactly, but somehow the noodles kind of clumped together once I put them in my stir fry – maybe I didn’t cook them long enough?
I can’t find my cell phone. I swear, in the last couple years I’ve lost my keys, my wallet, and now my cell phone! Um, I may have even lost Hannah at Whole Foods when she was little (although at the time I told her she did a great job at hide and seek!!) Luckily I found her! 😀
I called the cell phone place and I can get a new phone under contract next month – but Hannah was eligible for a new phone. She went yesterday afternoon and I just had to meet her after work to sign the paperwork. She got a blackberry “snap” and I couldn’t even figure out how to make a phone call and she scrolling through it in about 10 minutes showing me all the features.
I have such a basic phone – think one step up from the Jitterbug!
I had burgers and fries on the menu last night – the fries usually take the longest, but I decided to try something different. I baked the potatoes first in the microwave. While the deep fryer was getting to temperature, I put the baked potatoes from the microwave to the freezer so they would be easier to slice.
Then I cooked the burgers – I made these patties really flat, but they always plump up on me – I have no idea why?!
My favorite though (besides the fries!) was my ketchup and mustard 😀
And guess what? We are ordering pizza tonight! We both have a taste for deep dish – still trying to figure out what kind of crust Tony likes so I can try to recreate it.
Question of the Day – what pizza would you choose if you had to pick just one: Thin crust or deep dish?
