We have a range!

Hello all!

Our new range was installed on Friday and it is beautiful! I was cooking up a storm! I made Shepard's Pie for dinner and cupcakes for dessert Saturday night. I made this breakfast casserole (and added sliced scallions) for breakfast on Sunday. For the big game, I made some Touchdown Taco Dip and spicy wing dings. OMG, I'm still stuffed but it was all so good!

It was so nice to be able to be back in the kitchen again. I've got to get back to my meal planning and stick to it since we leaned a little much on dinners out and delivery for the past couple of weeks. The problem is now that I can make whatever I want, I can't think of what to make. Ugh!

What's on your menu this week?

Is it summer yet? I'm so ready for winter to be over. I need my car show fix!

These are some pictures from the car show in Marshfield last year.

*Drool* I want one.

Hello out there!

I'm on day 8 of this no smoking thing and it's going pretty well. I have had a couple of minor slip ups, but have otherwise I've been doing really well.

We didn't really get anything done on the kitchen this past weekend since we couldn't get the plumber out to disconnect anything. I don't really know that I was thinking. It wasn't an emergency so why would they come out on a Saturday? Duh. Anyway, they came yesterday and took out the ovens and capped the pipes. We'll be cutting the counter to make room for the new range tonight. Our electrician is coming tomorrow night to put in the new plug and the plumber is coming back on Friday to hook the range up. I can hardly wait!

Since I'll be able to cook, I'm trying to decide what to make for Superbowl Sunday. I usually do a chili for football games, but I really want to do something in the oven since I'll have it back after all these months. Maybe I'll try some type of wings and a baked dip. Since I'm not a buffalo wing girl, maybe I'll make these. I've made them before for dinner and they were yummy. I think I'll try them with the little wings and drums that you can buy in the freezer section. Hmmm, I must check out Recipezaar for some other goodies.

That's all I have for today. What are you making this weekend?
