Recently Sean was craving buffalo wings but we had not gotten around to going out to get any. We compromised on this meal because I ended up making turkey meatballs and putting the sauce over the meatballs. I made meatballs the way that I normally do but instead of putting marinara on them I put Buffalo Sauce.
Sean loved them. He actually told me that I could fix them again! YAY! We had carrots and celery with a little ranch to go along with them.(Yummy! Yummy!)
It is pretty bad when your brother calls you and tells you that you aren’t posting enough on your blog. I guess that is probably because I have been working way more than normal (and probably more than what is healthy too!) and working out a lot more then what I used to as well (which I love!).
What have I really been up to in the last couple of months? What have I been cooking? I know that you are probably wondering more what we have been eating. Well, actually, we have changed what we are eating a little bit more. A lot less processed food and mainly shopping on the outer edges of the grocery store. That means a lot of veggies and fruit. We have also quite buying meat at the grocery store and gone super local. We buy all of our meat from the local butcher shop. It is awesome! All of the meat is raised locally and processed right there at the store.
Mister has spent some time out of town recently and I got to cook what I was feeling. One night was spaghetti squash with crushed red peppers. One night was grilled cheese on homemade bread and tomato, with a side of guacamole. It was lovely!
What have I been working on in the sewing area recently? Actually lots of baby blankets for a couple of co-workers. One did not find out the sex of the baby (which is awesome!) and so I made her a gray and yellow blanket with an elephant. The other blankets were for a set of twins that should be entering the wold any day now.
These were an experiment because I have never really done anything that is appliqued – ish but these were headed in that direction. I was pretty happy with how they turned out!
Oh and the last little thing is I keep trying to convince Sean that we need to adopt this little guy! (It’s not going so well!)
Yesterday as I was waking up, I noticed out the back windows that it was a little foggy. I got up and ran to the front windows while grabbing the camera. Sean was still really groggy and had no idea what I was doing but I am sure glad I did because it as beautiful. The only bad thing is I should have opened the windows to not get the reflections of some of the things in the room.
On our way home from Newark, where we went for dinner, the sunset was absolutely gorgeous. It was definitely a two for one day!
