Thursday Thoughts

1. SP finally got to use the snowblower we bought last February! And not just once but twice! He said it made clearing the driveway so much easier and faster. His step counter when he shovels snow shows a heck of a lot more steps than when he uses the snowblower. I suppose fewer steps = less exercise = not so great but the snowblower saved his hands and back from a lot of wear and tear and pain. He wasn't as sore or tired as usual.

2. This past week I read Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng. I'm not sure how I feel about it. It's very sad and depressing. It made me think about a lot of different issues. But none of the characters is especially likable so I just didn't care about them, I spent a lot of time being annoyed with them.

3. It's chicken noodle soup week. The last couple of pots we've made have been really tasty. We've been keeping the noodles separate and adding them on a per bowl basis. That way they don't absorb too much broth while sitting in the refrigerator and we can control the quantity of pasta in our soup (I like more, SP likes very little).

4. Justified is back! Love Raylan & Boyd but sad it's the last season.

5. The Americans is back, too.

6. Last Saturday night, after our show & dinner date, we cuddled up on the couch and discovered that we didn't have any TV to catch up on. We didn't want to start a new series so we decided to watch a mindless movie. Very mindless. The Expendables 2. Sadly, SP tried to use his mind and found all sorts of inconsistencies in the plot, the action, everything.

7. This weekend is the Super Bowl. I don't care about the game. We'll be watching for the commercials. I'm much more interested in what we'll make for game time (commercial time?) food. Pizza? Nachos? Tacos? Subs? Dip? Multiple dips? Breads? Cheeses? Cheese Dips? Cauliflower in cheese sauce? Mac & cheese? Fried cheese? Cheese on everything? Lately I've been craving salty and crunchy much more than sweet. It seems that everyday a new salty, fatty, unhealthy treat idea pops into my mind and I want them all. Last night I wanted Fritos dipped in cheese sauce. I had to settle for air popped popcorn with butter & salt.
