If You Ask Me…

February 6, 2012

This is the funniest picture ever.

This was the best snack of the week.

Apple slices, peanut butter, granola and chocolate chips.

The grocery store is the last place I want to go for the rest of the week.

One trip Friday night and two trips on Saturday for party food and one trip today for food for the rest of the week.  I think I’ve seen enough of the grocery store for a while.

I need all of this for Valentine’s Day.

I swear it took 15 minutes to make my sandwich at the Whole Foods deli and that pile of chocolate and candy was looking better and better by the minute. 

I was hungry.

Whole Foods is kind of overrated.

Don’t get me wrong, I love what Whole Foods is all about, but sometimes when I grab a quick lunch there I feel like I’m paying a lot for food that isn’t that good.  And for the record, that baguette destroyed my mouth.

Fancy jello shots are a party necessity.

And they need to follow the party theme.  Which was 3 hours of expensive commercials, right?  I don’t recall watching any football yesterday.

Good thing the Patriots and the Giants have the same team colors, jello gets expensive.  Oh wait, it doesn’t.

And I won’t lie, this recipe was a little confusing and Joey had to rush to the store for more gelatin, but in the end it was worth it — everyone loved them!

Football is ….

Sorry but the whole football thing is kind of lost on me.  I don’t quite understand it and I’m fairly sure I don’t want to try.  I’m in it for the jello shots (see above).

The pizza I made was the best looking one at our Super Bowl party yesterday.

Want proof?

Foodie football art?  Yes please!

Madonna put on a great half time show.

Okay, say what you will about her, but everyone at our party seemed pretty entertained.  I thought her song selection was awesome and I was so excited when she shuffled with LMFAO.  

Just because it’s the Super Bowl and you’ll probably consume mass amounts of chips, dip, pizza, guacamole and may or may not take the bowl of puppy chow home with you when you leave the party, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t still celebrate Pancake Sunday.

Peanut butter pancakes, oh yes.

The commercials were pretty good.

Except that I only heard a few because our party was male dominated and they didn’t seem to care about the commercials so they talked over most of them.  Unless, of course, there was a hot woman in the commercial, then they all shut right up.  Typical.

Being left with a bunch of empty bowls and plates at the end of the night means it was a successful party.


Everything, from the mini corn bread muffins to the puppy chow turned out great! 

Overall,  it was a great weekend.  Here’s to a productive week!


Did you watch the Super Bowl?

    That is an excellent dog photo.

    What is your recipe for pb pancakes… is there pb in the batter?

    I studied all day yesterday, but I’m not really into the superbowl or sports, anyway.

    Truth: I think Whole Foods would taste better if I didn’t feel like they were eating my whole paycheck. haha

    Your pup is SO cute!

      I totally agree. And it would taste better if it wasn’t sitting out for hours. Even organic food gets gross looking after it sits out…

    It looks like you had a pretty delicious weekend! Those jello shots look amazing! And really hard to make…

      They were kind of a hassle but if I ever make them again I’ll be a pro.

    That was some super bowl awesomeness!! I totally loved the jello shots. I barely paid attentions to the game…a.k.a – reading a book at the same time, mainly because it wasn’t on of my usual teams I root for. Stellar party 🙂

    I actually didn’t watch the Super Bowl at ALL! Ha-ha, but I’ve heard the commercials were really good! 🙂

      I’m pretty sure I didn’t see any of the game either 😛
