So things have been lazy around the ole MR homestead. Two snow storms, a car accident, syllabizing for the three classes I am teaching this upcoming semester and just hanging out with my baby girls. It sounds busy, but it has been a slow and steady (even lazy sometimes) pace.
I did get in a car accident but I am okay. Grateful because it could have been much worse than it was. We have spent most days trying to figure out if our car is worth repair or if I am due a new one. But sounds like it is worth more fixed and then we will do a trade in. I dread a car payment again, but I am taking the accident, the multiple small car issues as a sign it is probably just time for something a little more reliable given my drive to work.
So MJ and I went to the movie last night. I am such a sucker for Judd Apatow and his movies. I love Paul Rudd and Melissa McCarthy and these two kill it in this movie. I laughed so hard my stomach hurt. The outtakes at the end of the movie were so worth sticking around for. MJ and I laughed most of the way home courtesy of MM. So anyway…Here is the trailer. I wish I could say I couldn’t relate but I so can. There are parts of this I am quite sure came from my marriage.
And this is Melissa McCarthy Clip…another movie MJ and I giggle about still.
And the girls and I want to go see Parental Guidance with Billy Crystal and Bette Midler. We have made our way to the movies a bit more since I got a job. Although, we have a a movie theatre in the little town by us that is cheap. That is kinda nice!
Today on Food Network there is what Pioneer Woman dubbed a PW block. A short mini marathon I call it. The breakfast episode has me hungry and googling her recipes. The first was her iced coffee. And you know what MJ makes a stellar iced coffee. I don’t drink it all that often but whenever I am at her house I kindly ask for it. And PW’s Eggs Benedict.Something I know I would just love, but I have never made. I may just have to try it soon! And her breakfast burritos to go. NOM NOM! I don’t make all that many recipe’s of PW, but she certainly inspires me to cook which my family enjoys.
And lastly, my favorite potato soup recipe is this one. I was thinking of it cause my mother in law was asking me about it. And because I cannot stand to leave anything alone I change it. I do not throw everything together while the potatoes boil. I saute onion and celery in butter and add then after the potatoes boil I add them to stock and cream cheese stuff. Sot it is more a base. I also don’t add red pepper. Mostly cause my family wouldn’t touch it then.
