a blog of many tales

14 Jul

Good Lord…its been a whole week since I last posted.
Well…what should we talk about?
I guess we can start with this weeks menu plan…that makes perfect sense…it being Thursday and all.
Oh my.

BBQ chicken sandwiches w/ cucumber salad This BBQ chicken sandwich is a winner…don’t skimp on the garlic butter spread…its what makes it special! I prob wont make this particular cucumber salad recipe again. Just didn’t do it for me.
Lasagna Soup This recipe gets a 10! I loved it. The next day most of the liquid had been absorbed and it was like eating a whole new meal…pasta w/ sauce!
Asparagus roll ups w/ greek salad Not a fan of the roll ups…they were kinda soggy. Love the salad!
Parmesan chicken & lemon creme w/ steamed broccoli Husb loved this meal…it is a keeper.
Spicy shredded pork to share with our neighborhood group. I’ve made this dish multiple times for large parties and it never fails! It is time consuming tho!

Also, I had my eye on two desserts this week.
Strawberry creamwiches and caramel popcorn.
The strawberry creamwiches about killed me.
Have we talked about this before?
My body thinking it can’t handle sugar.
And reacting like a big baby with instant headaches, dizziness and food coma like behavior.
So totally lame when you have a major sweet tooth.
So what do I do?
Decide to be a big girl and throw out the delicious strawberry icing so as to not be tempted…
then make a batch of caramel popcorn.
It makes sense if you think about it.
Not to worry…I didn’t have as hard of a time with the caramel popcorn.
Don’t ask me why…especially since it has brown sugar, corn syrup and sweetened condensed milk as the three main ingredients.
Both desserts were tasty by the way.

On a different note…I got some fun mail today!

I’m still a big TBTL  fan and have been waiting forever for some sort of decal!
They finally read my mind.
It’s totally nerdy but I love it.

And since it’s the 14th I guess it’s safe to show you what we did on the 4th of July.




We spent the day driving to South Lake Tahoe!
It’s about a 4 hour drive…but we do road trips well so it was peaceful and romantic.
Most romanic when my husband takes me to Sonic and gets me a large Vanilla Coke!
Love him!
And while I’m braggin on his sweet self…let me tell you…sitting on the shore of a lake in the sun for 5 hours is not his favorite thing to do.
He likes to explore.
But he sat on that sandy lake beach with me and didn’t complain about being bored a single time.
Although, I have to admit, 5 hours is a long time.
And it was a little boring.
Thank goodness for people watching…and there were some good ones.
And for a great fireworks show.
And most of all for a great husband who loves me.
I think I’ll keep him ;)

    I had a bag of caramel popcorn the other day. Not homemade but it was tasty! Your recipe looks good-sweetened condensed milk!!?

    Also, that was very sweet of your husband to take you to Tahoe! I love that place, although I might be a bit bias. Glad you guys had fun :)
