MPM # 35

Ahhh... The second full week of the month. Last week, we all got sick. I got it Friday so I got to spend the majority of the weekend feeling 'unwell'. Thankfully, whatever it was is fast moving and we are all feeling much better.

I can tell you I was very disappointed in some of the new recipes I tried last week... The Southwestern Soup was a YUCK. I love soup - it's my 'thing' and I could not eat one bowl of that abomination. I'm very glad I halved the recipe. It wasn't beany enough, it had such a yucky acidic flavour (yes, I tried a little sugar and a little Worcestershire sauce) and it was just boring and bland. It won't be moved over to my Family Favourites, that is for sure! On the plus side, my toss together quesadillas were great. They were fab and were even great reheated the next day.

This week, I'm using tried and true recipes. No 'new' vegetables - it's winter and we've had a foot or three of snow (no kidding - it started snowing Friday afternoon and I think it's stopped now... We had so much snow, we built TroubleMaker a toboggan hill in our back yard. Although our Barbeque is buried under all the snow, I'm digging out our indoor grill to make a summertime favourite - it's just been too long since our last BBQ and we all need a fix!

Two hours of shoveling, some kitty litter and a big push and we finally extracted our car from the front street. The snow is thigh deep on me (I'm 5'-11" tall) and TroubleMaker fell into a snow bank today and he was up to his head!

I hope you have a great week - whether you're snowed in our enjoying the sun! Thanks for stopping by and we'll see you next week!
