My Week, In Bullets

I’m soooo ready for bed, so let’s make this quick and efficient!

#1: Banana Peppers

  • Apparently I’ve just entered the wonderful world of Banana Peppers!  I think I’ve always thought they’d be too hot…not if you buy the mild ones genius! 
  • They add a nice kick of flavor to any sandwich…including this one:


  • Joseph’s Pita
  • Turkey
  • Ham
  • Dijon Mustard
  • Baby Spinach
  • Tomato
  • red onion
  • pickles
  • banana peppers!
  • carrot sticks and a few kettle chips


#2:  Icy Sweet Dreams

  • Hit the jackpot at the grocery store…oh no they didnt!
  • Yes they did…



  • Delicious, but still like the cookie on it’s own better.
  • Then there was Coconut Milk icecream, vanilla bean flavor…topped with a little PB melted in the microwave + a few choc. chips….INCREDIBLE.


#3 – Yogurt Hype

  • yes I’ve bought into all the blogging about this siggi’s yogurt lately, and bought one to try.


  • Verdict…LOVE it!  I usually prefer non-fruit on the bottom types of yogurt, so I didn’t know what to expect with this.  Well there WASN’T any fruit on the bottom…the fruit flavor is all blended in.
  • It’s thick and creamy like Greek yogurt but with more of a tart tang….this flavor was VERY tart, but I love tart :)

#4 - Salad leftovers: Part 1:


#5 - Spring Flowers

  • The weather lately has been GORGEOUS
  • and so are these flowers:

#6 – Set it and Forget it!


  • yes it’s true, we have a rotisserie…you know you used to watch the infomercials, don’t lie. 
  • It’s Brian’s; an old birthday present sent from his dad…and he loves the damn thing.
  • While grocery shopping I announced he could make me dinner one night haha. 
  • He saw the chickens and got really excited
  • He wanted to “Rotiserize”
  • The thing even comes with the big rubber gloves:


  • Funny boy.  Not a good way to test for doneness.


  • Removing Chicken.


  • Eventually onto my plate + roasted brussel sprouts and baby red potatoes.


  • Super moist and flavorful!!

#7 – Even Better the Next Day

  • Made one kick-ass salad the next day with the leftovers


  • baby spinach
  • cucumber
  • shredded carrots
  • red onion
  • bell peppers
  • radish
  • snap peas
  • tomatoes
  • leftover potatoes cut into chunks
  • leftover chicken
  • dressing:  olive oil, lemon juice, red wine vinegar
  • salt + pepper


Mega Awesome Salad!


  • Off to Providence for the day…I got tickets to the NCAA games down there tomorrow!!
  • Thanks to suggestions from the wonderful Sabrina, we will also be having a lovely dinner tomorrow night down there.


  1. Do you like your set it and forget it? It looked like it worked good.

  2. Those tulips are absolutely gorgeous!

    Enjoy your weekend Bridget :D

  3. Fun review! I want to try the Siggi's yogurt too. Love the flowers. I think I need to pick some up when I food shop today :) Enjoy the games- my husband is jealous!

  4. My most favorite Ice Cream ever!!!! I love that stuff!

    My husband said we should not have it in the house because I can polish off the entire container in a day. Love it!

  5. Ah, you sold me on going out and buying some banana peppers- I can imagine how awesome they'd taste in a sammich. thanks!! :)

  6. ice cream looks amazing!!! I really love ice cream and I will try stuff you topped. Also, Siggi's yogurt is one of the best yogurt that I have ever had. Siggi’s is really thick and creamy, no fake sugar, gelatin :)
