Dead Serious

I have not been able to blog because...
1.  I have been working a lot.
2.  I have become addicted to Sookie Stackhouse and her crazy-assed supernatural life. The books, not the show.

Whose Cous?

It was on sale at work, so I bought it. Cous cous! I made a pot up and then said "What do I do with it now?" I added some Greek seasoning, canned black olives (they don't bother my stomach like Kalamata ones do), sun dried tomatoes, and feta. And a dash or two of lemon juice. It's pretty good. 

 I haven't eaten bananas in ages, maybe a year. But I've been buying them for Kerry. Last week, he said  not to buy them anymore. I had just bought a bunch. So this week, they became muffins, and mini loaves and one big loaf. And I ate one, and I'm pretty sure I should not have. 

But I can drink this! And do I ever! One can every evening, thanks to my parents making a trip to Omak.  We also got bags of M&Ms. Dark chocolate mint, peanut butter, regular ones, egg shaped ones, and the best ones this season...Carrot Cake! Last season's best ones were the white chocolate mint ones, in case you were wondering.
This is what procrastination looks like today.

February Was...

My friend from the Jinky retreat, Amelia Chiew, and I are documenting our months in photos. Then we will blog about the month.  Since I seem to be blogging on a monthly basis, I thought this was a great idea. 
Our month consisted of a trip downtown for a walk that ended in a very expensive waffle. But at least now Kerry and Emily can say they had a food truck wafel experience.
I should also note, I did not edit any of these photos. 

 The toppings were $1 each! I think Kerry makes better waffles.
 Because someone got a new camera, and someone else got new wheels, we decided to go low keyed with the Valentine's gifts. Kerry made me sugar cookies.

 I made everyone cinnamon heart popcorn.
 Michele G moved to Edmonton so we had a going away party for her. I made sushi.
 We finally cut down the walnut tree. I was sick and tired of Linus eating walnuts every time I took him outside. The tree made a mess. 
We had dad come and cut it down for us. He chopped it into more manageable pieces. Then Kerry cut up the rest and took 2 trips to the dump. We gave some to the lady from the Benvoulin Craft sale that makes the Japanese dolls. 

 Dad made a chainsaw.
Linda  send me some Bazzills to emboss for her, and in return she sent some Trader Joe's chocolate. I love the caramel with black sea salt one! 
 Emily found a recipe for Red Velvet crepes, so her and Kerry picked up the ingredients while I was shopping for cute clothes with mom. They were pretty good.
