THANK GOD IT’S FRIDAY!
This week was…. interesting. I’m alive. I spent a lot of time on school work, so that’s kind of all I remember. I had 2 exams and I think one went rather well. The other… however… I do believe I scored my first “F”. I wish I was exaggerating, but y’all I studied all the wrong things! The test was far from what I was expecting. I’m embarrassed to start the semester off like that, but I’m impressed that I’m not crying like I would have a few years ago. I feel strongly I will recover, but that was a humbling experience.
Want to move on to some fun things? I think I do.
I got busy with some cake balls: Once again, I screwed up a box cake mix. This time I tried to make a bundt cake but didn’t grease the pan well enough. Oops. So I took the cake remains, crumbled them up in my blender, added some chocolate icing, and blended away. Made little balls, then I rolled them in sprinkles, since they were for our youth group Superbowl viewing and sprinkles are festive. These were probably the only thing that softened the blow for Terry.
Honestly they were a tad too rich for me, but they were easy and fun!
-I’m really excited for our Valentine’s Day Dinner. This year, instead of going out, we will be dining in. I’m excited to cook somethings I’ve never cooked before.
On the menu:
Steak (wish me lots of luck)
Cheddar scalloped potatoes
Ice cream cake (using this cake and probably strawberry ice cream)
I will recap it next week!
–Excellent eats from this past week:
*A Wendy’s frosty craving CRUSHED….
*Fudgy dark chocolate brownie bites via Mindful Eats & Treat…
I subbed half a banana for half the honey and they turned out so yummy!
*Cheesy buffalo chicken spaghetti squash via Peas & Crayons
This left Terry and I both speechless. It was so good.
*Oh, and shout out to this random purchase. I freaking loved them!
Things I read & liked:
–Crockpot French Onion Soup: I’ve never made french onion soup, but love how easy this one looks. And the recipe is vegetarian, if that’s your thing! It is going on next week’s meal plan.
–The Ultimate Snack Guide: For all us snack-y fools who can use more ideas!
–Science says lasting relationships come down to 2 basic traits: Interesting read sent to me by friend Rachel.
–The Nine Ennegram Personality Types: If you’re a personality-test junkie like me, you should take this. It’s somewhat like the Myers-Briggs, but it puts you into a “type” rather than four different types to make one type. I’m a type 1 and Terry’s a type 2. They even have a way to look at how relationships might work between two different types. The way it described a relationship between a 1 & 2 was oddly accurate. I think I’m going to do a post on it soon, because I find it so fascinating.
New Book From The Wizarding World Coming This Summer: Okay, so I FLIPPED when I saw this on my friend’s facebook. I feel that same anxious anticipation I used to feel before the next installment would come out. I honestly thought it was done, so I’m having all the feels over this!
Lastly, here’s a quote I’m sharing as a part of a challenge from Stephanie:
So, I want to hear from you:
Do you have Valentine’s day plans?
Are you fan of the Wendy’s frosty? I was a huge fan as a kid, but now I just get random cravings once in a blue moon.
What’s a fun recipe you tried this week?
