2 new recipes from this past weekend at the boat.
Corn Salad with Avocados
This was partially a recipe that I came up with and one that I got from the lady that works at the farm market. I couldn’t even tell you how much of each ingredient that I put in the bowl (oops…mom taught me well). The ingredients included corn, onion, oil, pepper, cucumbers, and avocados. I was going to put tomatoes in it too but I completely forgot about it. I am ok with that. It was really good the way it was.
Blueberry Lime Salsa This was one from my brother and he found it here. This one was awesome! We couldn’t believe how good this one was and it is a definite keeper.
Today has been an interesting day. We spent the day at home since Sean had a outpatient procedure done yesterday, it has been lots of rest and relaxation for him today! I worked most of the day (thank goodness I can do that from my computer).
We might have found another series to add to our list to watch now, Mad Men. We are currently also watching House of Cards. Both on now on the addicting list!
Today is actually my momma’s birthday!
This was two years ago when I got to fix her birthday cake for her. (This cake was otherwise known as Crumbles and Fudge by my brothers!) I always have a hard time when I don’t get to be with mom on her birthday but I know that Dad will do something special and she has gifts to open from us that got there yesterday! It wasn’t anything super exciting this year but that is ok. I hope she enjoys them!
Today is also Pi Day, ya know as in 3.14159 (sorry that is all I know!). I always get excited when I am at school because we have a teacher in the Middle School that always has a party for her students. I normally get to go participate which is always lots of fun! Since I wasn’t there today I made a pie of our own!
I also should mention that I tried something new tonight and they were super awesome! I made homemade potato chips. Sooooo much better then what comes in the bag! I could get used to making them more often!
Lots of different flavors too, Old Bay, Jerk, and Salt and Pepper.
For the day that it was it was a pretty good day! Let’s just hope the mister keeps healing properly and doesn’t have too much pain!
When Sean and I were in college, one of our drunk go to foods was pizza. We both loved it and there was something oh so good about a pizza at 2am. Our favorite place to get pizza from was Mad Mushroom. Everyone would typically go for their cheesy bread as it was cheep and a great option. We enjoyed it but we quickly found we had a new favorite. They were gourmet pizzas that had toppings like pesto, potatoes, and other no so typically toppings for pizza. Neither of us cared because the pizzas were outstanding.
I think that we may have tried this one other time but it was time again to take a chance and see if we could make the Basil PotatoHead pizza. This pizza was regular crust, a layer of pesto, cooked potatoes, onions, and lots of cheese. I can’t say that it was a Mad Mushroom pizza but it was pretty good. It was super easy too!
I think we still may have to make a visit back to Purdue and go to Mad Mushroom just to get a gourmet pizza because they really were that good!
