Day 16 and counting

So far so good.  We did go out to eat, but we had a gift card.  What was so sad is that we did not enjoy the meal.  We wanted to go to Bella Luna at Bradly Fair, but they were closed for remodeling.  We had to stay at Bradley Fair so we thought okay On the Border.  I don't think we will be going back.  The food was similar to Chili's and so was the menu.  I tried their new items using Hatch Chilies, they were tasteless.  Our waiter was great and the service was fine, but the food was not worth the money.  We will not be returning.....

So this weekend I have been cooking.  I have made Free Style Nachos for 15 Teenagers Friday night.  Scrambled eggs (from our chicken's) Sat. morning, leftover chili for lunch....home made Clam Chowder for dinner and a home made yellow cake.  Today I made Swiss Steak with mashed potatoes for lunch.  It was good.  Tonight I am making The Pioneer Woman's Chicken Tortilla Soup.  With all this snow still on the ground it looks colder than it really feels.  Recipes to follow.

I have seen a lot more money in the ole' bank account and a lot less of it walking away.  So much so that I went and got my nails done at Mani Pedi.  Kelly has been doing my nails on and off for the last year.  I started out with fake ones, but was not happy with the fact that they only looked great for one week.  Now they have a new thing called shellac and it is great.  My nails are all real and they look so good.  With a little care this will last 4 weeks easy. I love the way my hands look now.  I feel pretty!


  1. Oh, her tortilla soup was really good. I think I may have substitued a few things and think I will a little chipotle powder next time, but it so good!

  2. They look amazing! Especially for a Head Cook and Bottlewasher...who's hands are probably in lots of water and make it pretty difficult to keep them so nice on your own! :)
