Tony and I had a great weekend – Monday mornings seem to come too soon, I could really use another day off.

Most of this post will be in pictures – Tony made me a delicious breakfast on Saturday, I ate everything but the bagel because it had started to turn moldy – while it didn’t have any mold on it, it tasted moldy – but the spicy eggs and bacon were amaze balls.

One of my former co-workers who lives by me just got out of the hospital – she and her husband have three boys under the age of six, so I got Bizzy in My Kitchen and cooked up some food for them.

I made about 30 tacos – just made an assembly line and cooked them on my rectangle skillet so I was about to pan fry them 9 at a time.

I also made 18 banana muffins.  My MIL taught me the secret to great banana bread or muffins was to let your bananas get almost rotten before you use them.

I used this recipe for the muffins – the only thing I did differently was to add an oat and brown sugar topping.

And then I made a big casserole of macaroni and cheese.

I dropped the food off Sunday and spent an hour catching up with her – it was great to see her, but I miss her at my office. Sad smile

Tony picked up this tiny speaker, but the sound is not tiny at all.  I think it was $20 and we can hook up our phones and listen to Pandora when we sit outside and grill.

We grilled a beef brisket on Saturday night – unfortunately I put too many coals in there so the heat was higher than we wanted and we ended up overcooking it. Sad smile  However, I tried broccolini for the first time and loved it!  We also enjoyed a bottle of this – so light and refreshing!

Yesterday afternoon when I got back from my friends house, Tony and I ran some errands and then went out to eat.  I put this menu on Facebook with the question, “which one would you get?”  I went with the spicy giardinera burger.


It was no shock when I got a lot of comments “you mean you didn’t get the french onion burger?”  The food was good – both Tony and I could only eat half of our burger, but the service sucked ass.  We saw our server when she took our order and when we asked the bus person to find our server so we could get the check.


Then we came home – I still needed to clean the bathroom and kitchen.  But what I really wanted to do was take a nap.  In my younger days I was the Queen of the naps – it was always me who took a nap on holiday’s – I would just sneak off and take a nap.  It was only for a half hour or so but it was so nice – I typically think I need to keep doing something, so it was nice just to relax.

We redeemed ourselves with a grilled pork roast last night – cooked perfectly.  I think I’ll make pulled bbq pork sandwiches for later in the week for dinner.  I made a quick horseradish sauce for the pork – it was 1 tablespoon light sour cream, 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard and 1 teaspoon fresh horseradish – yum!

So it’s my weekly WI – while I didn’t exercise as much as I wanted last week, I have good news!

I am down 1.2 from last week!  I’ll take a pound a week!

Gotta run and put my food together for the day – I have a new breakfast muffin recipe for you tomorrow, but here is a sneak preview:
