It snowed big around here and I didn't take a single picture.
That's unlike me isn't it?
The reason I didn't take any pictures is because I had to do all of the shoveling and snow blowing while David was in New York for business.
Not only did I do all the shoveling and snow blowing, I also had to put more gas in the snowblower and play car tetris so that I could get all of the driveway reasonably clean.
Since I am too tired to write a cohesive narrative I will fill your blog bellies with some odds and ends.
I am still exercising and have lost six pounds. Pure craziness. Don't worry though- there is still chocolate in my life.
I've been doing a little junking this week. Check out the goods!
Love this vintage Santa candle holder!
This ceramic bowl is huge!
Red and white platter. What's not to love?
I should also let you know that I have a new love in my life.
Brussel sprouts. I have been preparing them with the following recipe and people, it is so stinking good. I can't get enough of them.
Pan roasted brussel sprouts with garlic and balsamic
whole mess of brussel sprouts, slice off bottom, then slice in half
4 tbsp olive oil
8 cloves of garlic, chopped
salt and pepper
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Heat olive oil on stove in oven safe skillet until it shimmers.
Add brussel sprouts cut side down.
Saute until bottoms are brown.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Toss sprouts so that they are coated with olive oil.
Put skillet in oven for about 30 minutes.
Take out once skins have caramelized and are browned.
Drizzle with balsamic vinegar to taste.
Gobble up and don't share with anyone.
That's it for today folks.
Not bad for something I just now threw together.
I probably deserve some chocolate just for posting....
