Get out of that same ol’ recipe rut and try one of these delicious and easy recipes this week! This week I highly recommend making the Best Ever Pork and Sauerkraut and the Pittsburgh Steak Wedgie!
Happy Sunday and Merry Christmas TKW Family! So this is an odd posting today. So like since like forever I’ve been posting a weekly menu every Sunday. However today is a special Sunday as it’s also Christmas. So do I like post my normal menu? Do I skip it and post a personal Christmas one? Do I join them together? Or do both and give you 2 posts in one day?
Today you’re getting 2 posts as while I can chit chat all day in this one, I can keep the other one more personal.
So it’s Christmas! Wow, time sure snuck up on us didn’t it? I was hoping for white Christmas as it has been years since we had one here in Pittsburgh however tis not the case. I think that’ll be the hardest thing to get used to once we move – no snow at Christmas, no change in the leaves but that’s okay; life is about change and honestly as long as you have Christmas in you heart, you don’t need the snow, right?
This past week was cray-cray for me! I was home all week and while you’d have thought I would be baking up a storm, you’d be so wrong. I was so super busy around the house with Mr. Fantabulous putting down the tile flooring in the bar/kitchenette downstairs. Seriously I’m so over Lowes, Home Depot and anything home improvement. Last week Mr. Fantabulous said he was going to be gone almost all day as his best friend wanted to go to the range and the hang out for the day. Now I was over the moon about this as while I love that man dearly even I need some ‘me’ time. I figured I’d get some cookies baked, stuff done around the house, work done on my site (I’m doing a COMPLETE redesign right now – I can’t wait for you to see it!!!) and then have almost the whole day to myself. So we both left the house at 9:30 heading in the same direction – kind of like where I live, there’s one way in/one way out essentially if you want civilization. We both stopped and got gas, kissed one another good bye and went our separate ways.
Now I know what you’re thinking “Lowes or Home Depot Lor?” – yeah.. so all I had to do was return a lightbulb we just bought 2 nights prior (you know since I was there 4 days in a row) that burnt out. And since it was one of the hood lights I needed it. So he swears up and down he bought it at Lowes… I go in annnnnnnnnnnnd yeah no, wrong store. Twas not happy. After that I stopped at my other stores I had to go to eventually hitting up Home Depot to swap the lights. It’s sad when they recognize you as you walk in and then ask where you other half is. Seriously, so over home improvement! LOL Anyway, after that I took myself to lunch.. yep all by myself. It’s funny as I have some friends that would neeeeeeeeeeever go to lunch by themselves. Why? You have to eat? It’s like they are afraid people are going to think they are unloved or what not. Hell for me it’s an absolute treat! It’s quiet time and I don’t have to do the dishes! Anyway, remember my saying I left the house at 9:30am???? Yeah… my butt didn’t get home until 4:30! Yes 4 friggen 30! All day! How in the hell was I gone all day? Funny part was for as mad as I was about it, I had no one to blame but myself. Though okay I did text Mr. Fantabulous and sorta blame him and those “damn stores” LOL He just laughed as asked if I still needed help carrying all of the stuff out of my trunk.
Yeah… I bought A LOT.
After that I made myself some dinner and chilled out on the recliner for the rest of the night. Talk about heaven! Though yes I did miss him; always do when he’s not here. Anyway, I should get going and get some stuff done.
Merry Christmas TKW Family! Love you!
