Hello! Time for another visit this week. I have been trying to survive this cold stormy weather in Dallas….(which people tell me is very unseasonable for this area). I can’t wait to return to the warmth of Arizona in a few months! I have clearly lost my ability to tolerate winter weather haha! Hope you all are staying warm inside if you are dealing with this nasty blast of winter weather. Now onto a look at some of the meals I have created this week.
I had a craving for strawberries the other day when I saw them on sale at Costco. I picked up the fresh ones and they were ok but kinda disappointing and tough. I grabbed a bag of frozen berries a couple days later and have been adding them to my breakfast and lunch.
Coffee and tea while snuggled on the couch under a blanket with a side of magazines and netflix and Amazon Prime. Have you guys seen the new series Bosch on Amazon Prime? I just finished binge watching it and was completely hooked by the end of it. I haven’t read any of the books but am a fan of the Law & Order tv genre. I highly recommend checking it out if you like those types of shows.
I am still trying to find a dinner meal routine/ideas that work with this new work schedule for the next few months. I work the afternoon/evening shift Mon-Fri so I need to pack a supper each day. I was browsing The Fresh Market and spotted this frozen roasted veggie pizza. I decided to give it a try and added some sun dried tomatoes before cooking it. It was quite good. It had a thin multi-grain crust which didn’t taste overly fake and there were large pieces of vegetables on it. It was a an easy meal to take to work for 2 days.
This weekend I stocked up on some salmon and baked a fillet on Sunday night. I was craving some fish and this ended up cooking perfectly. I can sometimes…(often) accidentally overcook salmon but this was just right. I added on some of the Mom’s Gourmet Wow-a Chihuahua seasoning blend that was awesome. Costco had a great deal on asparagus so I quick boiled a bunch to go on the side.
I popped up a bowl of this new popcorn to snack on after supper. The kernels pop up a lot smaller than usual but it still tastes the same.
Hope you all stay warm and spring weather can hopefully start to appear.
Have any of you been to Shreveport LA? I just found out it isn’t a far drive and have been wondering if it is worth a visit over a weekend?
I am planning a weekend trip to Austin soon…any tips or suggestions are welcomed.
Are you a Netflix or Amazon Prime viewer? Any recent favs? I am looking forward to season 3 of House of Cards!
I have been a long time reader of Jenn’s WIAW series and have really enjoyed her hosting the linkup each week. Over the past few weeks the linkup has a had to be moderated and put on hold due to too many unrelated off topic posts being linked up. It is a shame and I hope at some point the link up can return and its original intention and everyone can just ‘play by the rules’.
