This beautiful pink thing is going to change my life:
Isn’t that the cutest humidifier you’ve ever seen? I think it’s going to change my life. I can’t believe we made it over 5 months in Colorado without it! I literally wake up multiple times during the night with my mouth so dry that I think I’m going to die. But I forget about it during the day – the time when normal people buy things.
This is the Crane Drop Shape Cool Mist Humidifier. Kevin was nice, and let me choose pink, but they also have some other inferior colors. It’d probably make a great Valentine’s gift for someone in your life with dry skin.
I was the nice one at lunch today, and let Kevin have the good leftovers. It’s all about the give & take in marriage. I had whatever else I could find around the kitchen, and it actually ended up being fairly nutritious! I’m loving the frozen broccoli I bought at Whole Foods. The bag is SO much bigger, and the broccoli pieces are perfectly bite-sized. I don’t like stems or big chunks. Haha. Picky little princess, I know. But at least I’m eating vegetables.
The highlight of my afternoon was definitely when I found a wayward Hershey’s kiss hiding behind the F7 key. That made me so happy!
I finally got a decent workout in today at the gym. 4.06 miles of stairs + 4.07 miles on the treadmill for a total over just 8 miles today. That felt good! I didn’t go too hard on the run. The 4 miles on the stairmill had me sweating like crazy, and I had Jeopardy! to watch.
I was so pumped to come home for this dinner.
Buffalo Chicken Soup (via How Sweet Eats)
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 8-10 oz), cooked and shredded
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 sweet onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon flour
32 ounces low-sodium chicken stock
1/3-1/2 cup buffalo wing sauce
1/3 cup freshly grated cheddar cheese
1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
sliced green onions, crumbled gorgonzola and cilantro for topping
Heat a large pot over medium heat and add olive oil. Add onions with a sprinkle of salt to the pot, stirring to coat, then cook for about 5 minutes until soft. Add in garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes more. Sprinkle in flour and stir for another 1-2 minutes. Add in stock, buffalo sauce, chicken and grated cheeses, stirring constantly. Bring to a boil, then reduce and let simmer for 10-15 minutes, stirring every so often.
Serve soup and top with toasted baguettes, cilantro, green onions and gorgonzola.
We added little itty bitty noodles. Because we are carb happy. And we want the soup to stretch out for leftovers!
Served with some leftover homemade bread.
This picture is for you if you ever get confused by this blog into thinking I’m good at life because I make cookies every week or I run a lot or any of my slightly redeeming qualities:
That’s what I call my curly fry hair, guys. I know I’ve confessed before about how much I loathe washing my hair during the winter. And how it’s been noticeably tanglier since moving to Denver. So my hair just starts to get curled & crunched into place… after a few days. If I have to choose between washing my hair and eating diner 5 minutes sooner, you can guess which one wins.
And, yes, that is marshmallow creme you see prominently displayed on my lower lip.
The good news is that my skin is not that color. It’s just weird bathroom lighting. Lol.
Do you wash your hair every day? Just asking. I used to wash it every day when I lived in the DR. If the utilities were on that day. But it was always warm there, and my hair would air dry on a walk to the colmado!
What’s your favorite buffalo flavored thing? I also really love buffalo on pizza and sandwiches. And pretzel crisps. And I believe I’ve seen some recipes for buffalo mac ‘n’ cheese which I would obviously love. Don’t say wings. I don’t like yucky bones. Haha.
Have you had any Valentine’s candy yet? Several Hershey’s Kisses. But I miss the Christmas Special Edition mint ones. I wish they did a good special edition for Valentines. I only saw raspberry. That looked gross.
