Good bye January, HELLO FEBRUARY!!!

Happy Monday everyone!  Where did the month go?  Seriously, I could have sworn it was just New Year's.  I have to say I'm in a rather chipper mood today.  I don't know if it's because it's chilly-willy outside or that my backyard is one step closer to being everything we want it to be.  The addition to the garden isn't quite there yet but holy moly is the the new BBQ area pretty groovy!  I can't wait to show you all our hard work but until then, you'll just have to take our word for it.  I think we have about 3 more hours of shovel duty until I can show the "fruits" of our labor!  :)

  I have to admit something, I didn't do the best job planning dinner this week.  I feel as if it's a bit redundant for some reason.  Oh well, let's see what we are eating:
  • Mon:  Slow Cooked Chicken*
  • Tues:  Burger Pizza*
  • Wed: Spaghetti*
  • Thur: Chicken Stir Fry
  • Fri:    Pulled pork sandwiches
  • Sat:   Eating out
  • Sun:  Taco Salad and the SUPERBOWL
* works for the things to do list (slow cooker and new recipe)
Yup... that's it.  Nothing fancy.  For food prep, I didn't do any.  I just made dinner (Turkey Meatloaf and my goodness was it DA BOMB! BEST EVER!!!!)  I just wasn't enthused.  I did my usual shopping at Trader Joe's and wasn't... inspired.  Usually browsing through the produce section gets me excited but not this time.  I think the only thing different I bought was sweet potato slices for the kupcake to eat this week.  I think next weekend I'll need to run by one of the farmer's markets in our area and hope to find something different. I need variety!  Come on spring veggies, start growing!!!

Onto this week's to do list:
  • EBay a few things
  • Start making a pile for garage sale. 
  • Clean media room
  • Finish moving dirt for the garden
  • Repot front pot 
  • Relax
  • RUN... i need to RUN RUN RUN!

  In other news, I'm become obsessed with my new skillet.  I'm in absolute love with it.  I even want to toss all my frying pans away and just run off with this one. I'm currently toying with cleaning out the pans (they are good but do I need them all?) we have and just owning a few key pieces.  Still undecided.  Is that wrong?  Do I really need frying pans when I have such an amazing skillet? What do you think?

Love my cast iron skillet. It depends on what I'm making which pan I use. I have a a great frying pan too. Also my cast iron is only 10" and sometimes I need those extra 2" of the frying pan!
