Happy Fri-yay!!! 😉
I am camped on the couch right now, enjoying a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, and catching up on some cooking magazines. This makes me more happy than you can possibly imagine.
Yes, this is my Friday night.
And yes, I’m a total geek.
I am still struggling with finding the time to blog more in 2018 so bear with me as I get through the first three months here. My January, February, and March are ridiculous – and in reality, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m not complaining – I mean, travel to Atlanta, San Diego (SAN DIEGO!!!), and then Minneapolis? I’m in! But it definitely hinders my blogging fun. I will get there, I promise!
On an unrelated note, I mastered a 2nd Instant Pot recipe this week – macaroni and cheese! I think I’m starting to understand this whole pressure cooking thing. Plus bonus – I just found a stuffed peppers recipe for the Instant Pot that uses ground turkey! I am totally going to try it and let you know how it works.
And I baked brownies at 10 pm on Wednesday night and didn’t even eat a single brownie the next morning. Whaaaat? I know, my sister couldn’t believe it and probably thinks I have some superhuman willpower thing going on. Not true, I promise you. I think I just turned ‘crazy girl’ there for a brief moment, but it won’t happen again.
Another random thought … send Joe your positive vibes tomorrow as it’s the first round of his piano competition at the College of St. Benedict’s. If he does well, he could advance to the state competition. I promise I don’t care how it works out – I know he will do his best and he’s been working really hard on his song. He’s ready and whatever happens, happens. But – I hope for his sake, that he’s happy with how he does.
And finally … OMG, the Vikings are playing in the NFC Championship game on Sunday night!! I am trying to not to be too emotionally involved but at this point, I’m starting to bleed purple. Vikings fans know what this is all about … we want this so badly but are so deathly afraid of disappointment.
Here’s a video we put together at our office today — because I have the most fun coworkers on earth.
So there you have it … enjoy the weekend, my friends and remember – SKOL Vikings this weekend!
