Catch up

Hello there. It's time to get back on the wagon. I don't know how much you want to hear about. Do you want to see the jacked up hot dog I had at the airport on Tuesday? I'd like to forget it quite frankly but for the sake of the blog I'll post as many pics as I can to get all caught up.

Then it's bed for me. I'm going to Zumba tomorrow morning.

No excuses.

So here's Monday. It rained in Florida - and we ended up at the Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood. I started with the usual, had some onion rings and a chicken sandwich.

It seems we just missed Snooki's appearance.

You don't know how much that pains me. I should be ashamed - but am totally not - to admit how much I adore the Jersey Shore. As Kelly Ripa says "If loving the Jersey Shore is wrong. I don't want to be right."

Kelly and I go way back. I used to watch her on Dance Party USA.

I mean seriously 1986. What did you try and do to me?

Yes. I'm ancient. Deal with it.

Anyway....we had dinner at Mellow Mushroom.

Well. We had appetizers and a bottle of wine truthfully.

We had pita and hummus and garlic parmesan pretzels. Delish.

Tuesday. This petrified hot dog was pretty much all I ate all day.

Then I got home and made some pasta with meat sauce.

Wednesday. I stopped at TJ's after the doctors. I got some sweet chili sauce. I drizzled it with teriyaki on top of some chicken gyoza. Oh and broccoli.

Wednesday night I met my friend Steve for dinner. He was visiting from out of town. We started with quesadillas.

He had short ribs. I had crab cakes.

Ever notice how when I like something I order it ALL THE TIME???

Look. It's Thursday now. Time for...breakfast!!

Last night I cooked!! I made chicken using these two things.

With au gratin-y potatoes and a small salad on the side.


I think we're finally at Friday.


Lunch. Pretzel coated chicken (recipe soon!), spinach, sweet peppers, goat cheese, dijon balsamic.

Dinner w/mom and Jen at Dolcino.

I got the prix fix dinner that had an appetizer, entree and dessert.


Chicken Parm. I've got more than half leftover.


Dessert (w/peppermint tea).

Thanks for your patience with my blog slacking ways. I think I'm (finally!!) back in the swing now. Please send good thoughts that my dad will be out of the hospital and back to eating dinner with us soon. I miss him. :(


  1. Don't worry about Snooki - I'm sure she'll be around sometime for a bit. She's doing a ton of appearances here in Philly/Jersey and it doesn't seem like it's dying down at all.

    As for that ep. of DPUSA, I about died laughing. I thought all Dance Party vids were removed. Gotta love Marlon and yes, Kelly is quite proud of being a Jersey gal.

    Great blog - I'm sure I'll be here often :) And I hope your dad gets better soon!

  2. Hi Lys! Thanks so much for stopping by and the good thoughts. Looks like I got busted with my DPUSA clip!! That show was amazing - in the "I can't beleive I'm watching it way". :)

  3. Or maybe not!! I thought that it wouldn't play anymore. Do you remember how it was like a soap opera with Kelly and her boyfriend and how they would break up and get back together? lol!
