  1. Well you may have just talked me into seeing the movie again. I was so excited about it and counting down the days until it came out, was ready to actually go to the theater (last movie I saw was Orphan when I was pregnant with my 3 1/2 year old), but then interviews with J.J. Abrams came out and I just couldn't justify spending the money to see something that the director most likely ruined, but I may have to give it a shot. No matter what I would have seen it eventually because I have seen everything Star Trek. I actually think I may have converted my Star Wars is better, wouldn't even watch Star Trek hubby so us and my two girls all love it. TNG is a favorite for hubby, 6 year old and me whereas the youngest likes TOS best because she loves Spock and tribbles. Both girls asked me to use my ball shaped cake pan to make them a tribble cake for their birthdays this year and youngest takes her Star Trek book of opposites to bed with her every night.
  2. My girls love schar bread, its sold on the shelf at our store and nice and soft. Only problem is it has to be eaten fairly quick because there are no preservatives in it.
  3. I spent most of my day at the library with Clifford, Curious George and listening to a band singing math songs to classic rock songs (ex. Sweet Emotion by Aerosmith was Calculators) and then we took the girls for ice cream (soft serve blueberry...yum!!!). Anyway that meant a quick dinner of hot dogs on Udis buns with roasted garlic and sea salt chips and coleslaw (cabbage, carrots and apple with a honey mustard vinegarette).
  4. Another one having mac n cheese tonight. My 3 year old hasn't wanted to eat much of anything for the past 3 days and she asked for bunny mac n cheese (Annies) and buffalo chicken so I'm hoping that she will eat at least something.
  5. Tonight is double meat lasagna, salad and french bread. Possibly followed by Luigi's Italian ice.
  6. Thank you so much Irish! I did it! Plus I will be doing it again tomorrow since both girls have dance and hubby won't be home. Then it will be home to cook all the food for my neighbor's first birthday party and encores from tonight for dinner.
  7. Tonight I'm throwing a meatloaf in the oven just to be simple. I went to the grocery store for the first time in over a year today and didn't have a panic attack!!! Tonight I am going to try to go with my husband to take my daughter to dance, fingers crossed...it's a bit further and haven't been there in over 2 years.
  8. I started reading the Hannah Swensen series by Joanne Fluke and am loving it. Can't seem to put them down.
  9. Marinated steak (I just took a bunch of stuff out of my fridge and spice cabinet and threw it together), mashed potatoes, balsamic pan fried brussel sprouts and rosemary honey cornbread. I'm also making an egg free chocolate cinnamon cupcakes with a ganache topping. Fingers crossed they come out right, not using an established recipe, I'm just winging it.
  10. Tonight I'm trying another Mrs Leepers that my neighbor us, it's the chicken alfredo one. This is after I developed my own cookie recipe this morning and baked it up, I just keep finding stuff that I want to bake. Also planning my Easter dessert menu since that gives me an excuse to bake more and so far I have carrot cake cookies, cranberry bread pudding and possibly some browned sugar candy.

    Tuna Salad

    I won't touch any seafood with a 10 foot pole, but I make all my salads (chicken, turkey or egg) the same. I definitely have to have Hellmans mayo and Guldens spicy brown mustard, other then that I will put in other things that I have in the fridge because my oldest doesn't like the salads. I have used small cubed cheese, diced up petite kosher dill pickles, celery, onion and other veggies.
  12. Tonight is cabbage and noodles from the leftover corned beef and cabbage.

    Mama's & Cafe Baci - Hackettstown Nj

    So I finally tried Mama's, Heaven!!! I have a problem going out places so my husband went there and ordered it. All four of us had sandwiches. mine was a proscuitto melt and it was absolutely delicious. We also got the pierogis (since Easter is coming up and we wanted to try them beforehand) and mozzarella sticks and I too was amazed that it was gluten-free. My husband also treated me to a cannoli since that is one thing that I still really miss from gluten days.and it was absolutely amazing! There was also a sample of the risotto with champagne sauce and the 10% discount card. I was incredibly impressed and would definitely go back again.
  14. Happy Birthday Love2travel! Hope you have a great day. Tonight we are ordering in from someplace that has a great track record with gluten-free, and they have a huge menu. We are having sandwiches, mozzarella sticks, pierogies and my hubby is getting me a cannoli because that is probably the one thing that I never stopped missing.
