[EOTW] Fumble

DSC_1801

I wish that my final football food related post could be titled ‘touchdown!’ but unfortunately I had to land on fumble instead. I didn’t even come up with anything creative to make for the Super Bowl, but somehow it all went wrong. So wrong that I didn’t even take pictures of what I made! I also didn’t really eat much of it. I tried to make the classic wings, pizza rolls, and mozzarella stick combo from scratch, which I’ve done before with great results. Things just weren’t going my way this time. My wings were just OK, I overcooked the pizza rolls, and just totally failed on the mozz sticks. If only I had been blogging here last year when I put effort into making team themed food (New England and Manhattan style clam chowder)!

Anyway, the rest of the week was also pretty lackluster. I relied a lot on quick pasta dishes because I had classes a couple nights this week. I also became utterly obsessed with these fudge stripe cookies. Not very sophisticated, I know. I had them for the first time when we were stranded in the basement and now I can’t get enough. Oh, and how could I forget – There was a possible kitchen mouse sighting that put me in too much fear to enter the kitchen for two days. And when I say possible sighting I mean possibly imaginary. Heh.

[EOTW] Eating Sawdust

DSC_1464

It’s been an unusual week. There has been absolutely NO cooking. Why? Well, as you can see below, the kitchen is trapped behind sheets of plastic. Some of the floors are getting a makeover and some rooms are ditching the carpet to match. No cooking, but lots of noise, sawdust and takeout! We haven’t been able to leave the basement much so we created a stash of fruit, cookies, and crackers nearby. The floors look really nice though! Should be back to cooking again soon…although it might be hard to get back into the swing of things!

PS Nutella & Go! is the best packaged snack ever. And a perfect airport companion.
