Game time

by Elizabeth on June 25, 2013

Hello and happy Tuesday! I hope your week is off to a good start! Yesterday I did a 7 mile easy run before Noah and I headed out to do some ridiculously unproductive errands?. as in going to SAMS only to find out our membership expired in April, then to Babies R Us to use a store credit that was also expired. Ah well, some days are just like that I guess. And it wasn’t TOTALLY unproductive. Thanks to a stop at my other favorite store: Big Lots.

My thinking was, “These will be perfect for Joe’s lunches!” But who are we kidding, they will be gone in a week and Joe will never even know I had them. I was pretty hungry when I got home (repeat picture) so I made a grilled turkey and cheese sandwich and some carrot sticks.


After Noah napped we played in his castle for a while. His favorite game is when we pretend he is king and I am the royal servant. I get him everything he wants? milk, popsicles, crackers, balls, and help him down the slide.

Oh wait, that isn’t a game. It’s real life.

For dinner I made some AMAZING meatballs! I used a pound of ground meat, two eggs, about a half of a cup of Italian bread crumbs along with seasoned salt, garlic salt, and red pepper. Served with alfredo rice and a salad with bleu cheese.


We finished our night with a walk and Russel Stover. Love that man almost as much as my other two ;-)

1. Are you more of a cupcake/cake, ice cream, cookie, or candy person?

I go through stages. Sometimes I am majorly a cake and cookie lover but recently I’m on a chocolate candy kick.

2. Do you make up or follow recipes?

I always make them up? I can’t even remember the last time I followed one!

Anything chocolate is what I love…except chocolate ice cream. Strange. I do like to cook and follow recipes! Sounds like y’all had a fun day! :0)

ICE CREAM!!!! I am a total and complete ice cream lover :)! I like to sometimes combine a couple of recipes and use the comments people say to add or take away ingredients :)…I am not a very good cook though….

Hahaha! Want to come play “royal servant” at my house? He is such a cutie, though, how could you NOT give him all he wants?

Ice cream x a bajillion. I just tried the Blue Bell cookie dough- yeaaaaah, it only lasted 3 days, whoops! Did you get picked for the marathon lottery?!

Cookie and candy- I don’t like frosting so no to cupcakes and cake.

I’m always jealous of seeing bloggers throw random things together to make dinner and it looks amazing. I’m a recipe follower 99% of the time.

Chocolate all the way!! Froyo is always good too

It depends on what I’m cooking. If I can make it up as I go, I’d prefer to do that.

I’m more of a brownie or cookie girl. Something chocolatey and gooey! And I usually follow a recipe and add my own stuff- so a little bit of both!

Your sandwich looks amazing… I was craving a sandwich earlier!

Those cosmic brownies remind me of childhood. I used to love them as a kid! I always picked the little colorful bits off and ate those first though.

Sorry your shopping trips didn’t go as planed with sams and babies r us :(. Big Lots is pretty awesome though, you never know what you’ll find there!

I’m more of a cookie CAKE person. I think cookie cake is literally the best dessert ever created.

Follow recipes for foods that I’ve never cooked. Once I know what I’m doing (or if I make something that I’ve grown up eating) , I never follow the recipe.

Chewy and gummy candy are my favorites! Gummy bears, Twizzlers, Swedish Fish, Mike & Ike’s are all my favorites!! I mean, I like it all but those are the sweets I am most drawn to.

As for recipes, I usually follow one the first couple times I make a dish but then I start mixing it up and adapting it to make it my own!!

Can I choose everything? I love pretty much anything of the dessert variety. ;)

Noah’s got you right where he wants you, and he’s a lucky little dude!

I will always pick ice cream over any other dessert! :-)

I am a sugar person, so I can’t decide between those choices! But if I had to, then I’d say ice cream (since its summer). On top of cake. With a cookie on the side. :)

I am an ice cream person for sure. Also I usually will find like 3 recipes and combine the parts I like best into my dish. So I kind of create my own but not really.

I agree I go through stages with desserts/sweets. One day it may be all about cookies, then next ice cream. But it is a slippery slope!

Happy Tuesday! I am a anything & everything dark chocolate gal, more often than not, straight chocolate does the trick. Sometimes, I like to have it in the form of a cookie or brownie. I like to make up recipes when it comes to entrees, but usually follow recipes for baked goods!

Girl, hide those Cosmic Brownies and don’t even think about sharing. Joe can’t miss what he never had ;).

Definitely a cookie girl… With frosting! Don’t like candy at all and don’t really like icecream either! And no I’m sorry I don’t think you will ever be able to change me on this one…. I will let you keep having all of the candy in the world… But feel free to send me all of your cookie cake and cake balls! :-)

I LOVE milkshakes.
I LOVE vanilla ice cream with wine drizzled on top.
I LOVE gooey cookies right out of the oven.

As for recipe’s, I usually look at one for an idea, grab the ingredients, disreguard the recipe, and make it my own way :)

I am currently in an ice cream/fro yo stage. It’s all I want! I tend to follow a recipe the first time I make something then wing it after that…and always regret not following the recipe each time lol
