kraut fondness

Cam: My dream for him is that one day, he’ll be on the Supreme Court.
Mitchell: Why Cam?
Cam: So at parties I can tell people my partner is one of the Supremes.

Does anyone else love Cam from “modern family” as much as i do?!?!?!

wow, that was a random intro…

hi everyone!!

pretty sure i’m on a sauerkraut high… i’m not sure why exactly, but i busted into a jar of sauerkraut a couple days ago, and have not stopped yet!

the other night for dinner i attempted to create a kraut centered dinner. i think i had reuben in my head, but went with homemade russian dressing???

i’m not gonna lie… it tasted about as bland and disturbing as it looks! the dave’s killer bread was KILLER (sidenote: if you haven’t discovered dave, do it!!), but the turkey was dry, the dressing was weird.

FAIL

but there was a silver lining…

YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

i have come to terms with the fact that i love sauerkraut… it took me a while (when i was young i pretended like i hated it b/c everyone else my age thought it was gross) but i am embracing my fondness for kraut!

a couple days after my fail, i was at one of my most favoritest places and saw that allie had properly created a healthy living appropriate reuben at home!!

omg it’s like she was speaking directly to me!!

so for dinner that night…

flat out reuben and salad!!

SO GOOD!

i’m not gonna lie, last night, after porter’s sisters beat up on him in puppy class…

i may have possibly might could likely ate…

oh, does that look familiar??

this morning i was thinking there’s probably a way to have kraut oats???
but i chillaxed and went with something basic, but delightful

i was actually running so far behind this morning, that i didn’t arrive at work with breakfast. so i popped into the newly remodeled little store in our building and figured given my procrastinating prowess, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to keep some oats in my drawer at work…

i took an early lunch so i could scoop up farley boy and take him to the dr. to be de-frankensteined…

we waited for the dr… and in true farley fashion…

he was totally obsessed with the fact that he could hear noises on the other side of the door, but could not get out there and see what was goin down!?!?!

the dr. removed all of farley’s staples (bye bye frankenstein) and was so impressed with how quickly he’s recovered (his pimp walk / limp is almost completely gone)… that he doesn’t have to go back for any followup appointments!

with the good news we jetted back home. i had to make something pretty quick for lunch, and anne was sending me incredibly subtle hints like, “you have time to make me one of those flat out reubens, right??”

so… welll…..

hey, i didn’t have the salad with it, so it was like a totally different meal!!

and the best part…

the jar is not empty yet!!

dinner was royalty… BAMBOO SUSHI… nikki and jr had a gift card AND a coupon.

things started like this…

and b/c nikki and jr were still stuck in traffic, i did this…

(it’s how they pour sake… they overflow it into the little box below… something about signifying abundance… ok ok whatever, just drink it!!)

then the rest of the dinner was pretty much like THIS

i came home to catch up on modern family since i missed it last night

and b/c i was really good and did not have dessert at the restaurant, i whipped up some impromptu magic bullet ice cream deliciousness

– almond milk
– POM juice
– banana
– splash of vanilla extract
– lots of ice

magic bulleted to perfection

then thrown into…

my almost empty sauerkraut jar… HA! kidding.

we’re not there… yet!

so tell the truth… do you like sauerkraut!?!? are there any foods you always liked, but were afraid to admit it b/c you knew people would think you were weird/gross… ????

p.s. speaking of foods i love… anne is giving away some new chobani for kids… cruise over… you too could be a CHAMPION!
