Snapshot from Along the Broken Road: 2016 - Week 8

Checking in for the week of February 21 through February 27.

The Dark Tower (Stephen King) - Just over 300 pages to go. Jury duty on Monday. I can see the light at the end of this month long tunnel.
The Ambassador's Daughter (Pam Jenoff) - I've been squeezing bits of reading on my lunch break. Really looking forward to actually digging into this one soon!

Sunday, we did up some sausage burgers and topped them with provolone and roasted peppers. We balanced that, on Monday, with some tilapia, wild rice, and zucchini. Tuesday, I did up some Turkey Pot Pie Soup, using up the frozen turkey leftovers from Christmas dinner. Wednesday needed to be quick since the Lent service starts at 6:30; grilled cheese worked perfectly. We tried out a new recipe, Bacon Scallops with Garlic Butter Sauce, on Thursday; we served it with some angel hair, to catch every drop of that sauce and found it really tasty! We had a Steak 'n Shake date on Friday, because I just had to get that black raspberry chocolate chip amazingly delicious.

Hollyberry (YC)
Snowflake Cookie (YC) - I'm really not sure how this one is any different from the classic Christmas Cookie scent, but it's vanilla and smells like cookies, so I'm not going to complain.
Hazelnut Coffee (YC) - Makes the house smell super yummy.

The new scallops recipe plated up rather pretty!

Every bit as delicious as I had hoped.

Date night!

Finally well enough to indulge in that homemade hot chocolate I've been wanting.

Now I want a milkshake from Steak and Shake. And one of their delicious greasy burgers. Yum!!!

Do you guys have them up there, Krystyn? (I really want another one of those shakes. Black raspberry ice cream does not get nearly enough attention down here. Not like it did up in New England!)

Yes we have S&'s about 15 minutes away and we don't go often, but they are oh so good. I kinda want to ditch Spin and Yoga tonight to go eat there....yikes. But I won't...maybe we will have to stop over the weekend though.

We don't go often either. Maybe once or twice a year? It's a good little splurge every now and then though.

I just love these peeks into your daily life 🙂

Lots of delicious sounding and looking food! You know the food posts (and photos) are my favorite! I *SO* wish we had a Steak n Shake here. The closest one is about 3-4 hours away. Sigh. That shake looks awesome, you definitely need to go back and get another one if it's a limited time only thing :)

I've very nearly gotten out of my candle phase. I tend to burn them only 3-4 months a year, when it's colder. I'm very sad to say that we are rapidly warming up here. 70's this week and 80's forecast next week, so spring is definitely around the corner if not already here. Sigh. I miss our not-as-hot time of year already! :) I know you can relate!

Glad you are feeling better! Take care :)

Stacy: The one thing that keeps me burning candles all year long is that, when the house is closed up tight for the warm months, it starts to smell stale after a while. I like fresh, clean scents, or bright, fruity scents when it's warm out!
