Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

What happens when it’s Friday night and you don’t feel like cooking, ordering pizza or going out and a bowl of cereal just won’t cut it? In our house when that happens we head straight to the garage and to the freezer.  There is where I try to keep microwavable meals and snacks specifically for those occasions and last Friday night it was Lean Pockets Pretzel Bread Sandwiches.

I am not a big proponent of frozen meals & snacks because of the excessive sodium some of them contain but these Lean Pockets brand sandwiches are only 250 calories with 650 mg of sodium which isn’t a lot compared to others that contain well over 1000 mg of sodium.

The Lean Pockets Sandwiches were filled with Spinach and 3  Cheeses, Fontina, Romano and reduced Fat Mozzarella.  I zapped one in the microwave for 2 minutes 30 seconds in the crisping sleeve then cut it in half.  It didn’t seem like it had a lot of filling and could have had more spinach, but to my surprise it was quite good and hit the spot. The soft pretzel bread encased a flavorful mix of spinach and cheeses that paired well with my glass of Friday night wine!

Speaking of wine, I want to reintroduce my “play cousin” Cook E doe Face.  She is a down to earth YouTube Vlogger who will have you in stitches as you watch her create some delicious dishes and “knock you on your butt cocktails”.

Cook E de Face is from Philly and I fell in love with her atty-tud (Philly slang) from the very first video I watched.  In today’s world it is so easy to get caught up in the negativity but you know me, I like to keep it light.  Cook E doe Face has me laughing out loud and reminds me of my own New York cousins.  If it were left up to me she would definitely have a show on the Food or OWN Network!

Check out this recipe for Flatline Cocktail.

 

Have a fantastical day – Smooches!

Hello Friends, I hope you are having a Thankful Tuesday.

First and foremost I would like to offer up prayers and condolences to those affected by yesterday’s bombing at the Boston Marathon.  Last night at the dinner table I once again emphasized the importance of being thankful, staying positive and living each day as if it were your last because tomorrow is not promised to any of us.  The senseless waste of time on negativity and hatred is time that any of us can ill afford – Stay Blessed my Bloggy friends!

Not just today but every day, we have so much to be thankful for starting with the glorious gifts from Mother Nature.  As much as I dread getting out of bed in the morning, once I’m up and out I feel truly thankful and blessed, how can I not be?
