Tasty Tidbits

Last weekend we saw Mary Poppins! It really was amazing. I've been singing the songs all week.

It wasn't exactly like the movie, but pretty close. Some of the scenes were switched around or altered to be more stage friendly. I loved how the characters were so true to the roles that I was used to from the movie.

We stopped for dessert before the show at Mixies, a new frozen yogurt bar in Hershey. They had a great selection of flavors & toppings for such a small shop. It was yummy!

We're still getting ready for Christmas around here. So much to do! We're taking the weekend off to spend away from all the craziness though.

Our living room ceiling is still a work in progress. The Bup works on it any chance he gets, but that's not as often as we'd like. He has about 1/3 of the insulation up. Since it got colder, you really notice a difference when you walk into the room. The other night we were huddled under a blanket when I felt a breeze & noticed the curtain moving. Frigid air from outside was actually creeping into the room from between the wall & ceiling. Brrrr! I can't wait to have it all insulated & cozy.

In crazy thoughts this week, we've decided that if it's all true, & aliens come to abduct us on 12/21/12, we'll be rescued by some pretty cool ones. My rescue alien's name is Bangles, a little purple alien covered in stars. The Bup's rescue alien is blue & his name is Thor. They'll be dressed in all silver & so happy to see us! :-)

Here's what we've been eating in the last week:




  • Cooking Light's Mushroom Lentil Burgers on homemade whole wheat-spelt buns - We loved the flavors in these burgers! They were a little softer than I like my veggie burgers, so next time I may try added more breadcrumbs. I ended up making 6 burgers instead of the 4 the recipe called for & they were still nice-sized burgers. I froze 3 for future eating. Next time I'll make a double batch to save time & dirty dishes.
