I had such a wonderful day today! I stopped by WIne Authorities (to pick up a bottle of rose, which is new style of wine for me to try; a 6-pack of Bell’s Oberon, my favorite beer; and a Mothership Wit, New Belgium organic wheat beer. While there Seth was so generous and placed some $ on my Enomatic Machine card for all the customers I try my best to send there way!! How cool is that!? I just love the vibe and friendliness of their shop.
Also, one of my co-worker’s brought me a decorative wooden meat tenderizer and mortal and pestle from a Mexican Festival she attended (so sweet), I was told I that I look like Charlize Theron
(which is always nice, whether I truly do or not), I received several nice and appreciative blog comments today, and when I came home I was welcomed by two birthday packages!! Since my birthday is a little later this week, I’m NOT going to open these quite yet. It’s more exciting to think about them for a few days anyway!
The Ditch Dog
Yep, a hot dog of your choice topped with a creamy mac-n-cheese of your choice! I don't think food could get much better than this.
- 2 feta and spinach chicken sausages, heated
- 2 hot dog buns or 4 small rolls, warmed
- 1/2 cup leftover mac-n-cheese, heated
Inspired by this recipe on Martha Stewart
At the grocery today, I found two huge bunches of tulips marked down for $1 a piece (which is yet another reason my day was so good)!!
Classic Coleslaw with Caraway
- 1/2 cup nonfat Greek-style yogurt, or 2/3 cup regular plain nonfat yogurt
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 (16-ounce) bag shredded coleslaw mix
- 2 teaspoons caraway seeds
If using regular yogurt, place it in a strainer lined with a paper towel and set the strainer over a bowl. Let the yogurt drain and thicken for 20 minutes.
In a large bowl whisk together the Greek or stained yogurt, mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper. Add coleslaw mix and caraway seeds and toss to coat.
The dogs “thought” they wanted some of the cabbage…don’t worry they didn’t one single bite of it.
