I am glad you are all as passionate as I am about the importance of getting the exact right Halloween candy so thank you for your help in my last post. I will be making my selection today at the store. The next thing that is stressing me out (I know, such a stressful life I lead) is what in the world the three of us are going to dress up as. Since it is Brooke’s first Halloween we have to start things off with a bang and train her to know that Halloween is kind of a big deal to me.
Have you ever eaten at Costco? If you answered no, change that today. If yes, have you ever tried their turkey sandwich? It is in my top 10 favorite sandwiches of all time and I decided to recreate it at home so that I didn’t have to wake Brooke up and go spend $5 on something we already had all of the ingredients for. We used sourdough bread, turkey, mozzarella cheese, tomatoes and PESTO (the key ingredient) and cooked it on the George Foreman.
We were on a pesto kick (pesto from Costco) and had it with penne noodles, shrimp and garlic bread. It may look like I didn’t eat any vegetables but I am convinced that pesto sauce is filled with veggies because it is green so therefore it is healthy.
The only chocolate in the house:
It needed to be made into cookies. We all know the real reason that we make cookies, the dough. Poor Brooke was opening her mouth so big for just a little taste.
I have yet to ever make anything without getting food all over myself. At dinner on Saturday my dad said, “I don’t know how you did this but you have a glob of cheese in your bangs.” I need a full body bib.
I just put in my retainer that I haven’t worn for hmm…… a REALLY long time and I feel like my teeth are going to fall out. How’s that for a random ending?
Did you have braces? A retainer? Do you still wear your retainer?
What should we make with the rest of our pesto sauce?
What do you think Brooke should be for Halloween? I need your ideas!!
Do you like the cookie dough better or the finished product better?
-I am all about the cookie dough.
