Cool Mom

Mel over at A Taste of Life has dubbed me a “cool mom!”  She and her significant other “J” sent me a package of yummies!

How did they know I like spicy food??!!

 And then they gave me seasoned peanuts – I opened the lime and salt ones immediately – SO GOOD!


Thanks Mel and J!

So at Aldi yesterday, I wondered over to the cheeses, and I found this interesting one:


So I knew that somehow this would make it into my breakfast this morning.  I sliced up 2 ounces of my homemade bread last night, and then sliced a granny smith apple really thin and used 1 ounce of the pesto cheese.  The result?  Perfect balance of sweet and savory!  The dog kept looking at me to give him a bit and I was like “no way, this is all mine!”

So today is another cooking day – yea to be me!  I am making Italian Sunday Gravy – I’ll be interested in what my mother-in-law has to say about this recipe and see if its similar to anything she’s made before.

Then there’s my superbowl recipe I need to make so I can submit it to Cathy’s contest.   Off to do a quick clean sweep as I think my sister in law is coming over to visit Tony today.  See you later!!
