Sesame Street Cheat

The day started out great, I mean, I had every thing in my To Do list checked off by noon, great! Even ran the self clean mode on the oven with the windows open because it was 50 degrees in VT today! Had some yummo Gumbo leftovers for lunch, and then things started happening and adding to my list. My 2:00 appointment with a propane company for an inspection was a big fat fail, and then someone I’ve been trying to help out for a month told me to stick it where the sun don’t shine. Really?
I still got all my items checked off by the end of the day and made it to my 5:00 showing early and my 6:30 right on time to see my friend T dance her pretty little buns across the street. If I hadn’t been talking on the phone when I saw her, I totally would have recorded it.
I didn’t get home till after 8 and discovered My Dudes were naughty and didn’t eat leftovers or make something new and delish. They got Chinese food. They got me a small sesame chicken. I ate less than half and decided I’d rather eat the leftover creme brûlée. In the dark.

Now it’s 11:15, my gut is in turmoil and I’m hungry again. Another cheat fail.

Sweatpants Sunday

I freaking hate the time change.  I think it should be outlawed.  I woke up at 8, but it was really 9 and then I was late.  I hate being late.  My Mom was coming to take Little Dude snowboarding and Dad was gonna hang out with me today.  Everything ended up fine and all on time, but man.  I hate that immediate feeling of doom because you’re late.

I think I ate half of this loaf of Paleo Banana Bread today.  I put in several handfuls of walnuts and some deep dark chocolate chips.  It was AMAZEBALLS!  And maybe I had a couple extra shots of espresso.  It was a good day.

Dad and I hung out, talked and watched some Archer and The Americans.  Both are stellar shows.  When he took a nap I made the Gumbo with 2 lbs of shrimp, andouille sausage and sweet Italian sausage, extra veggies, spinach, and the Cauliflower rice.  I also made a side of Paleo Garlic Bread.  I don’t know what I did wrong, but the consistency was all wrong and it was more like drop biscuits.  No worries, they were still delish.  I think I’m gonna try to make a pizza dough out of it this week sometime.  Maybe fill it like a calzone?

Oh, and since the creme brûlée wasn’t ready last night, I served it up tonight after the Gumbo.  I can’t post a recipe, cause I kinda mixed a couple different ones together, but it was solo good.  Actually, I’ll try to recreate the recipe this week sometime.  My bro and his GF are coming to visit.  If I nail it, I’ll post it.  Anyway, it was awesome.
