Hot Balls.

Ok, that’s it, I need to follow Meghann’s lead and install more memory on this macbook. I am OVER the spinning beachball of DOOM!! I just have to convince myself I can do it!! It’s like a pull up!! (oh wait, I can’t do that either.) I can still do it. I am sure of it.

But how am I supposed to get any blogging work done on a day like today?!?! It’s going to be 55F and sunny. There are parks that need people to play in them, streets that need walked, crazy street dances that need danced. I realize I have superbowl recipes to test for you guys, a cake to drizzle with chocolate, eggs to poach for the captain, but I WANT TO RUN. There is only one possible solution. GET THEE MY JOGGING STROLLER!!! The captain will run or ride a bike beside us, it’s time to go.

The Cop just called me to inquire about his laundry and if I had a chance to hang it up. The arrogance! It’s like he’s at work and doesn’t realize how awesome it is outside or something. Silly husband. Bad cop-no chicken wings tonight. (yeah right, we all know I’m making them for YOU. You sexy kittens you.)

I did make another appetizer for you to appetize your party guests with. These are very homey and kitschy Midwestern via Brooklyn. Mealoaf Muffin Balls. You know you love your meat-and your balls-and your hot muffins. This achieves all three, making them the most awesome yumminess ever.

I would not make these with tofu.

What do you do when it’s warm in the middle of winter? Ferris Bueller it? Sit outside and do nothing? PLAY ON A JUNGLE GYM?!?!?
