Slow Cooker Black Beans
Finally, it’s over.
I feel like I’ve missed out on the rest of the conversational world for two weeks, all because of the Olympics.
For two weeks, I’ve been riveted. Absolutely glued to the television at night. I haven’t watched my normal dose of Matt Lauer in the morning, fearing an up-to-date report of Olympic results.
I haven’t listened to the radio, pulled up MSN.com, or watched the evening news, all because I don’t want to see what happened in Sochi before I get to see it myself at night.
Roasted Brussels Sprouts
I know. I know…I KNOW!
What I have to tell you next is even more disturbing.
You see, I’ve been living with a terrible secret, and now I cannot hide it anymore. It’s been bothering me, and I feel that before we go any further, I must come clean.
Best Buttermilk Waffles – The Salty Kitchen
Here in Houston, we don’t get many snow days, if any. The last time we got a day off for weather was three years ago. So to say I was thrilled we were off on Friday, is an understatement.
The city doesn’t handle ice and cold weather well at all. Before noon, there were over 500 car accidents, if you can believe it. But since school was called off, we got to have a day to sleep in, stay inside, and do nothing but watch Disney Junior was perfect, to say the least.
As a side note, I was pretty done with “Sofia the First” by noon. Why is her head so BIG in relation to the other characters? Just sayin’.
But since the kids and I had all morning to decide on breakfast, this was at the top of our list. Why not gorge on carbs today?
Sally’s Cake Batter Chocolate Chip Cookies – The Salty Kitchen
I am so sorry if you were coming here for a healthy, get-back-on-track, keep up your New Year’s resolution recipe.
I’m not helping out, and I know it.
I’m so sorry.
But not really.
Because, you see, I would type more about this recipe, but I somehow keep having a hand in the cookie jar eating these cookies.
Make these this weekend, okay? Weekend calories don’t count.
Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup – The Salty Kitchen
This is an updated photo of a recipe I originally posted last year. We love it so much at our house, I make it quite frequently, and after I saw my original photo…well, not that these are much better, but….they are a little better! I was hoping to give it more justice!
It’s almost that time of year again. That time of year is when parents with young children scratch their heads with ideas of how to get kids to sleep before 9pm. The daylight hours were fantastic for us when we were young and wild. Now, though, as Nick Mom so poetically put it, “you kind of love it when they go to sleep.”
Yes, yes we do.
