Then my fabulous hubby made me lunch! We had pasta salad with black beans, tomatoes, red onions, green pepper, hard-boiled egg and pepper-jack cheese. It was delicious! Then I threw dinner in the crockpot and got back to studying while Kendall and Maple took a fun walk around the State Capital.
I missed them, but I got a lot of good study time in and felt much more confident about the exam when they returned home.
Then I got down to business. After reading all the Superbowl recipes online all week, I was ready to have some! We wouldn't be watching the game on Sunday, so we had it a day early.
For dinner, I chopped up some celery and carrot sticks...
And I made my hot artichoke dip....
And I made slow-cooker buffalo chicken. It was so tender! And the sauce was nice and spicy! I had some red wine on the side.
Falling off the bone.
Then, since I had been couped in the house, Kendall and I went out for dessert. We had fried ice cream. I'll admit-- it's a sugar and fat bomb. But it's delicious. I had never tried it before. This photo isn't great, but it's a ball of vanilla ice cream that is coated in crushed corn flaked, sugar and cinnamon, fried, and then served with a butter praline sauce. Decadent and divine! Can't make this a habit though!
Sunday started with a bowl of oatmeal and water and coffee. Then we drove to have a visit with my parents. For lunch, sweet and sour chicken with rice and a nice salad. And then some ice cream. And apple juice. And more coffee.
We went out for dinner and I had a grilled chicken sandwich with fresh veggies on the side. It hit the spot!
We got home a bit late, and the drive was yucky! Rainy and dark...
We had a glass of wine and got to bed.
