If my husband HAD to go ahead and lock himself out of the house, at least this came out of it.

Things I Made and Ate and What I Thought Of Them

Salt & vinegar roasted potatoes - As an avid love of all things S&V, yes. A bit more involved than your everyday roasted potato because of the soak, but these were great especially doused in more malt vinegar after baking.

Homemade mayo - If you shudder at the thought of mayonnaise, give scratch mayo a legit try. The jar is a different animal. I used Mister Mustard (best) and some grated garlic in mine. Be prepared for a really sore whisking arm.

Crock pot baja chicken tacos - I have literally nothing to complain about with these. So easy and a big payoff. I used chicken thighs since I had them and I only used purple cabbage in the slaw since I didn’t feel like peeling a carrot. It was a long day.

Peasant pasta - If you’re new here maybe you don’t know, but this is our go-to, make-in-my-sleep, too-tired-must-eat-now dinner. It’s comforting and flavorful and done in 20 minutes.

Monday’s being a regular ol’ c u next Tuesday

  • I put a BB&B coupon in my purse, but it was not there when I went to check out and shopping there without using a coupon is like ouch man.
  • On a much more serious note, I was invited to a huge-deal party for a close friend and there’s absolutely no way I can go on the date that was apparently decided without any discussion. I’ll just miss a major life event of hers no big deal BURN IT DOWN.

VAN EYCK

I lost it at the end.

Okay, I had to check out the Van Eyck thing. I was a bit in denial because, come on, every single person can’t look like President Putin!

There are no words to describe how wrong I was.

art history major approved.

Fancy mac - Can’t sing its praises enough. I love this recipe so much. As I’ve said many, many times before, you can shortcut the cheeses; I rarely ever use what’s called for instead going with regular swiss, parm/pecorino, and the chevre to save dolla dolla bills. You won’t miss $15 of gruyere and fontina. 

Caesar salad - A dream if you love lemon/acid. It’s really zingy and refreshing and amazing to eat when it’s uh-thousand degrees outside. 

Bbq chicken chopped salad - I thought I might die standing up from so much prepping and chopping and grilling, but when I sat down to eat it was all worth it. I left the corn raw because I weirdly like raw corn and it saved me a step. Grilled scallions, who knew??? So good. 

Cajun shrimp po boy salad - This is a weird salad. Fried shrimp and oven fries that happen to be on some lettuce, etc. I liked it, but it’s a weird concept. Strangest of all is that I thought the dressing was disgusting. All things I like enthusiastically, yet together? Gross. I don’t even know. I threw it out and used bottled ranch dressing instead.

Soft pretzel rolls - Soft pretzels is like my family. I did the regular ol’ baking soda bath because while I don’t doubt lye works better I didn’t feel like getting chemical burns on a Tuesday night. My reading comprehension was also poor and I used active dry yeast without seeing the note at the bottom and didn’t let it sit first, so my pretzels were likely flatter than they should have been, but still excellent. ESPECIALLY as a vehicle for char-grilled brats and chipotle mustard (it’s Guy Fieri/I’m sorry).

Kale caesar salad - A repeat for a reason. We have dino kale growing in the yard (“yard”…) so I skipped the massage and went with thin ribbons instead of tearing it into pieces.

Nancy’s chopped salad - Alternatively titled How I Learned My Husband Hates Radicchio. I liked this, though the amount of salt called for is actually insane. Dial that shit back. My personal preference next time would be more lettuce and/or less meat.

A while back I bought a pile of drugstore mascara in protest of expensive ones and in hopes there was no actual point in spending $28 on one tube when you can get 5 for the same. 
First up in my experiment? Maybelline Mega Plush
I feel like mascaras don’t really hit their stride until a week in but the fresh tube is pretty serviceable! A bit difficult to get all the way to the base of the lashes (I like to REALLY get in there) because the brush is so fluffy and bendy but somehow plush is exactly what I feel my lashes look like. Good job Maybelline marketing team.
A couple of months later, I still like this mascara. Great length and I’m a fan of the soft fluffy effect. More volume would be nice. My biggest complaint is that I suspect it’s one that has fibers in it. I can’t see them, but every so often I’d feel something drop directly into my eye and I’m thinking that’s what.
You’re good, Mega Plush, but I think we can do better.
Grade: B
