Day Vs Night

Look at the difference a day makes! hehe Also I really need to windex the mirror...


A couple of weeks back Derek and I enjoyed a date night at the bowling alley.  (They have yummy pizza there!)  :) We were both horrible the first game.  He kicked my butt the second.  Only because I'm pregnant tho, I'm sure of it.  We'll have to try a rematch after the baby is born. 


In other news...

Buffalo Popcorn

On Sunday when I was home alone not watching the Superbowl I decided I wanted some popcorn.  But I wanted to do something different with it.  I thought some how making buffalo sauce on popcorn would be delicious.  I browsed the web but there aren't too many options.  I did however find a recipe that I followed mostly.  They added chips and peanuts but I only had popcorn.

Buffalo Popcorn and Strawberry Blueberry Smoothie

Buffalo Popcorn     

3 quarts popped Popcorn
2 cups Corn Chips, slightly broken
1 cup Peanuts
1/4 cup Butter or Margarine
2 Tbsp. Louisiana-Style Hot Sauce
1 tsp. Celery Seed

Combine remaining popcorn with corn chips and peanuts. In small saucepan, melt butter or margarine with hot sauce, celery seed and salt. Pour over popcorn mixture, tossing gently to coat. Spread on l5x10-inch baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes. Remove from baking sheet to large serving bowl. Toss with remaining 2 cups popped corn. Serve immediately or store in airtight container.

Here is where I found the recipe. Lots of other yummy looking popcorn recipes here too.

Oh as suggested in another version of buffalo popcorn I found I left out a couple of cups of popcorn so it could be plain.  I think this helped especially since I didn't add the chips or peanuts.  Also I didn't add any celery seed.

So basically it was just popcorn, butter, franks red hot, and a little salt.  It was delicious.  I sprinkled most of it on the popcorn that wasnt set aside and mixed it all up.  Then I baked it.  Then I combined the unbuffaloed popcorn with the popcorn from the oven which crisped back  up after being soaked in buffalo sauce.  I sprinkled a little more buff sauce on top of it all and then ate up! Yum yum! :)

Chili & Smoothies!

So we had some steak in the fridge that needed to be cooked  so I whipped up a small pot of chili.  Turned out delicious! :)  Just cut up, browned and seasoned the meat.  (seasoned with garlic pepper, cayenne pepper , salt & pepper and a little taco seasoning) Then added 1/2 an onion, red kidney beans, chopped tomatoes.  Let it simmer for about 2 hours and voila!! Yummy! :)  We had little cups of it and saving the rest for dinner tomorrow!

Quick Steak Chili

After that I made a delicious strawberry blueberry smoothie.  Derek watched a documentary on Netflix about food so he got the urge to buy a juicer and tons of fruits and veggies.  He hasn't juiced anything yet but I've blended some of the fruit into yummy smoothies! :)
