Do you ever have those days where the hamper seems to be filling itself back up after you take clothes out? I feel like I’m not making much progress even though I have 2 loads done already.
And I’m sure I could have done more laundry, but Nick, Maggie and I took a walk down to the river this afternoon.
It was 61 degrees! I’m not sure where this weather came from today, but it was beautiful – blue skies, slight breeze, sunshine. Nick played outside with Maggie while I got groceries and then we all took a 30 minute walk together around the neighborhood. I didn’t even need a jacket…so now it has me in the mood for spring. Too bad we may be having one more big, bad storm next week :\
My dinner plans tonight were actually my original plan for our superbowl night meal, but since that meal plan got moved, I decided we needed the sloppy joes tonight.
I wanted to make the same recipe I used last time, but I didn’t have all the ingredients, so I ended up just throwing things in the pan until it tasted right.
For tonight’s Buffalo Joes, I used:
- 1 lb. ground buffalo
- 1 can diced tomato
- 1/4 cup ketchup
- 1 tsp tomato paste
- 1 Tbsp mustard
- 1/4 cup Country Bob’s barbeque sauce
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
They were great! I love using buffalo instead of just ground beef, and it was great in these sloppy joes.
We had the sloppy joes on some whole wheat buns, along with a big serving of veggies: green beans with corn, carrots, and peas, and some roasted potatoes.
And we split a Pepsi :)
My head + body still feel like they’re catching up after the trip, and my time for sleeping and waking up still feels a little off. I’m hoping to get a good night’s rest tonight before work tomorrow.
The only plans for tonight?
More laundry, the Hokie basketball game/Olympic hockey game, and cuddling.
