What We're Doing. And Eating.

TGIF, my frinternets. Here's what's shaking at the White Hot house this week:

  • Henry sleeps in Fletcher's bed now during the day. What is cuter than a little cat man in a giant dog bed? Not much:

  • Fletcher is the cutest (most spoiled) dog who ever lived:

  • Passed my glucose screen with flying colors. Not so much on the hemoglobin check. Which explains why I have been craving red meat and spinach and ice (number one anemia craving, who knew?). So, in summary, it looks like we are just genetically predisposed to grow large babies, and I will now be popping iron supplements and giving myself free reign on the hamburger consumption:

  • All of our furniture for the nursery has arrived and is set up. It looks like a room for a sweet little baby girl, and I love it with my heart and soul. Now it's time for me to get on my project list, which includes: mobile, bunting, roman shades, pillow cover, matting prints, and painting the rug. In other words, I'll be busy this weekend. 
  • Hugh is a busy bee as always. Instead of being a whiner, I will continue to just feel that lucky that when he has one free hour a day, he wants to spend it with me.  Don't be jeal.

And these are a few things we have been eating:
  • Chicken Tinga Tacos - We actually made these in December, but I forgot to share the link with you. Which is a crying shame, because they were delicious. Make them for your next dinner party:

  • Barbecue Pork Quesadillas - File this under food that looks like a hot mess but tastes really good. Take some of your leftover pork and coleslaw from last week's menu, slap it between two flour tortillas with some pepper jack cheese, a pinto bean version of these, and a few sliced jalapenos (no, I have no idea why my heartburn is terrible all. the. time.), and heat until golden brown. 

  • Smoky Beef and Bean Chili - A solid slow cooker chili from February's Real Simple. I am a huge slow-cooker proponent, because, what's better than having dinner checked off your list and cooking away at 10am? This recipe isn't on their website yet because it's from the newest issue, so I'll have to come back and update with the link. 

  • Not pictured: Chick-fil-a Spicy Chicken Sandwich. Again, with the heartburn, Catherine. Also, a Wendy's Chocolate Frosty. It was the first frosty I have consumed in probably 8 years and, holy moly, who knew those things were so delicious?!

With that, I am off to take the pup on his chilly morning walk, do some work, and go to the doctor. I think I spend about as much time with my doctor these days as I do with my husband...

Hope your weekend is just lovely and you eat something delicious and you get at least one hour with your most favorite person. 

See you Monday!


  1. If you don't want to have to make a separate frosty trip, may I suggest the cookies and cream milkshake at Chicken-Fil-A?

    Also, do you feel like we should make malted milk ice cream and eat it all next week or what?

  2. This post is making me hungry! You are such a super cook/wife. And why am I up at 1:45am??
