Writer's block

I have no idea what to blog about right now.  However, I'm trying really hard to push through these writers blocks.  What better to talk about then things I'm loving lately?  Good things are always worth talking about.

Things that we're loving lately:

Wine is  a given.  I mean, have I talked about that enough?  I figure we can take a day or two off of that.

Pineapple.  I wish I could tell you how much I love pineapple this time of year.  I buy one pretty much every time I go to the story.  And when you add chocolate, magic happens.

Counted cross stitch.  Yes, this officially makes me a 90 year old woman.  I'm fine with it.  This is the project I've been working on.  It's a coffee scene with a sign that says "Relax".  Very fitting, given the fact that I use cross stitching to relax.

Low-carb comfort foods.  I didn't know that this was possible, but it absolutely is.  I found a recipe online that suggested using kale instead of noodles.  We chose to go with collard greens, as they are a little sturdier when you cook them for a long time.  I par-boiled the collard greens, and then made my lasagna as usual, just substituting the noodles for greens.  Ammon said that it is better than regular lasagna.  It will be out new way of making our lasagna from here on out.

Downton Abbey.  Holy mother of awesome.  I am so incredibly obsessed.  I'm mid-way through the 2nd season so far, and I only watched my first episode on Monday.  So in love.  I am enthralled by Anna and Bates.  They are my favorite.  All time.


  1. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm pineapple and chocolate....

  2. bahahahaha. I love Downton too, but I'm waiting for the current season to get to Netflix so I can devour it. If counted cross stitch makes you an old lady, I'm right there with you for my knitting. I mean, how many 30 year olds do you know that routinely walk around in public in garments they've knit for themselves? Yea, just me. I don't know any other ones either. Have a great day!

    And pineapple is my FAVORITE.

  3. Okay do I really need to go watch Downton Abbey?

  4. ahhh I really want to start watching Downton Abbey! I'm dying to see why so many people are obsessed with it!

    your pineapple and chocolate idea sounds like a winner!

  5. My Mother in law will get Downton 3rd season DVD when it comes out and then I'll watch the whole thing - I've already seen the spoilers though...and I'm kind of ok with that.

    Pineapple is delicious.

  6. John makes awesome pineapple chicken fajitas. Now I'm craving them!

  7. #1 I love that you said, "holy mother of awesome" and I think my co-workers are thrilled too - they like it when I do that "HA!" from my cubicle...HA!
    #2 That cross-stitch thingamabob that you're making??? SWOON!
    #3 Um...don't have a number 3, but felt that I needed to write something...
    Love ya!

  8. Anna and Bates! YES! I love them!

    I am obsessed with that show!

  9. I'm so excited you're watching Downton!!!! Aren't Anna & Bates the best?!? Just wait till season three. Oh my gosh.

    Lasagna with zucchini instead of noodles is also really good!
