As promised, I have this weekend's puzzle for you, and because I'm writing this post so late you're also going to find out what it was I chose to make for dinner. SO EXCITING.
I do realize how ... banal and ridiculous it is to think that any of you have an interest in what I have for dinner. But since we were just discussing it yesterday I figured you might be curious.
This same way I was curious to know what people are generally curious about - so I Googled it and found out that snails can take naps that last 3 years. It was listed under fun facts you could use to break the ice at a dinner party.
When last we met I was deciding between chili with all the fixin's or spaghetti & meatballs.
I got a macaroni and cheese craving. I made Martha Stewart's Macaroni & Cheese. And then I burned it under the broiler but it was still delicious.
Which means I handed Betty over a serving of chili, froze 2 portions and will also have macaroni & cheese leftovers for tomorrow night.
Plus it looks like we'll only get a couple of inches, not 6 or 8. I can't imagine this could have gone any better.
Have a good remainder of your weekend!
THE 25 PIECE PUZZLE
The easy one. Because a little fun is less filling than a lot of fun.
THE 100 PIECE PUZZLE
The hard one. Because why would I move? On a Sunday?? 🙄
Well... 2:04 and 18:49 respectively......... and now I'm hungry. lol Snow-wise my end of town got maybe an inch, but the Northern parts of the Chicago Metro got some appreciable snowfall.
I think it's turned into something more annoying - cold rain. ~ karen!
Oh good my name didn’t appear in email. It was kinda stalkerish. Loved your recipes yesterday. Couldn’t find how to comment then, sorry! Love your emails. And Phillip. Had 2 silver moyenne poodles, still in my heart daily. So all the ‘Lip photos you have, please share!
Tasty looking! You are spoiling me at this point. This is the second Sunday in a row that I've been able to sit with my coffee and complete a puzzle before starting my day. Glad you have bonus food stuff now that the expected snow didn't happen. Keep warm! Oh - and I want to add another like to the new format. Kudos.
Thanks Deb! I'll keep trying things out until I fall on a format or combination of formats I like. :) ~ karen!
Talk about a blue plate special - the most beautiful blue plate I've ever seen! Well worth a very complicated puzzle.
"Blue plate special", lol. That's great! ~ karen
That poor, sad, little piece of lettuce...
Yeah. She almost liquified as soon as she touched the hot chicken burger. ~ karen!
I love choices, especially when I can choose the 25 piece puzzle and feel so incredibly accomplished that I may go out and conquer the world! That 100 piece puzzle would've kept me here all day (not a bad thing) but at 2:25 record time, I feel like a bona fide CHAMP. Thank you, Karen! Then, not only did a photo of your Dog Balls pop up, one of the ads appeared with a set of hanging balls.... for my BICYCLE. It's gonna be a great day :)
That was a good little distraction. I'm having a bad day and I finished the puzzle in less than 3 minutes! Winner winner chicken dinner! ;) I printed your spaghetti sauce recipe - it's gonna get made this week sometime. We'll see if it's better than Bev's (sans the hamburger...)! https://www.food.com/recipe/bevs-spaghetti-sauce-26217
Can't finish the puzzle, there's a piece missing! Lol.
