Tonight's dinner was one of those dinner where you are still hungry after you are done eating. We bought a rotisserie chicken from the store and it was a lot smaller than we expected after we got it home. It was practicaly cornish hen size so by the time we got the girls fed there wasn't much left for us.
Idk if it if was a smaller one than usual or if it was the same size as always and looked smaller since the girls have all grown and are bigger eaters. We haven't had one for a long time but there was a coupon in the ad that if you bought 10 rice packets for $10 you got a free chicken. I'm thinking I'm going to have to have some cheese and crackers after the girls go to bed. Tomorrow I'm making vegetable beef soup from leftover roast.
My sister gave DH some Pinot Noir red wine vinegar and Tuscan herb EVOO for his bday. I'm excited to use it. Might be good on a salad.
Tiffany...we use our google calendars on our phone all the time. DH and mine are synced together so it's nice for me to see if he has something going on and for him to see what's planned. I put anything in it that I don't want to forget and set an alert. It also comes in handy if you have to look back and see what you were doing on a specific day. Hope you find your phone.
My phone is lost in a snow bank in front of our house. I must have dropped it when i was switching to the drivers seat so DH could push the car up into our drive way. Then he must have shoveled it away. Anyway, he and the neighbors spent quite a bit of time looking for it. I think I had insurance on the phone or I will buy a used one... no big deal. So, it is not that I was forgetful... just must have fallen out of my pocket in the craziness that was this afternoon. We can tell from GPS about where it is... but the ringer is off because I turned it off at church today.
Dh made some awesome lasagnas a month ago and froze them. Had the last one tonight.
Bummer about your phone. As least you have an idea of where it is but I guess that doesn't help much when it's in a snow bank. DH thought he misplaced his pager today. He got paged and called the hospital back, then couldn't find his pager after we both looked all over so I paged it. When it went off, we found it clipped to his pants...duh!! He usually has it more in the front of his pants and this time it was on the side way back so he couldn't feel it. It was a dumb moment for the both of us.
I've been looking at different baking recipes to see if I want to try anything different. So far I haven't found anything. I already bake quite a bit so I really don't need more things to bake. I did find these little tart sized cookies where you press a PB cup in them. I think I've had them before so I may have to try them. I think I'm going to start baking next Monday. It is finally cold enough outside that I can put everything outside in a tote to keep them fresh.
I watched the show "Trophy Wives" on TLC last night and was completly disguisted by these women. Age difference doesn't bother me at all esp. since DH is 13 years older than me. But these women live in 15000 sq. feet houses, don't work and have a maid. Why does someone who doesn't work need a maid to make them their tea and toast? They also have 150 pairs of shoes that cost $1500 each. The ladies were 27-30 and they looked a lot older than me because of all their botox and fillers and I'm 30. One ladies step-son was 5 years older than her. They were for sure they were their husband's last wife even though they were wife #4. Idk why they think they are the lucky one after 3 prior wives.
Just so you know, I spent the last 10 years living in a part of Dallas with a lot of trophy wives. They know they could easily not be the last one, hell, their husbands even mention it. They have to work to stay skinny. Once some younger, cuter thing comes along they will be tossed out with the rest. It causes a lot of anxiety and other psychiatric issues. I won't watch the show. Being someone's second wife and being someone's trophy wife are not the same thing - especially in your case, Meg. And it is not an age difference thing. Also, you could support yourself entirely if you needed to - something not true about most trophy wives. It can lead to severe power-balance issues in relationships.
Also, google latitude is so good that I know my phone is on a certain side of our driveway within a few feet of it... its driving me nuts. I wish I could send a picture. But I really cannot dig it out myself. Today is supposed to be windy and very cold. Tomorrow is my half day and should be warmer. If we only had a metal detector.
P.S. My favorite winter cookie are soft ginger cookies with double the ginger... at least double... they're highly addictive. I really need to make that nut recipe that Margaret posted. Our neighbors were so helpful. They even blew us out this morning without asking. Not to mention shoveling last night to find my phone.
Finally got my step-mother's phone number, now I need to give her a call.... I have not spoke with her in 4 years. She wanted me to call when I was out for the funeral...
I can see how those trophy wives can have anxiety and other issues. It was just a disturbing show.
I'll have to check out google latitude. That's pretty neat it can find it within a few feet. I have the "find my iPhone" app on my phone and that just tells you where it is in a general location. So it could be in my house, but idk which room. It would work well if you left it somewhere though. I guess at this point it doesn't matter if you find it because it's probably toast by now. That's really nice of your neighbors to blow out your drive. One of our neighbors did our's once when we were on vacation. We were dreading having to park at the end of the drive to tromp through the snow and we pulled up and it was cleaned out so that was a nice surprise. Do you have a snow blower? I should probably figure out how to run ours just in case I need to do it for some reason.
I make a ginger molasses type of cookie. They are pretty yummy. I need to look for the raw almonds when I'm shopping in Des Moines on Wednesday. I've looked around here and can't find them. I really want to make those almonds because they sound so yummy and easy.
