Silver & Gold

28 02 2010

In the end, Ryan Miller and the boys just couldn’t make it happen.

BUT a silver medal is nothing to balk at and the guys played their hearts out.  Canada skated unbelievably and it was a great game.  Wish the circumstances could have been different, but that’s the way the cookie crumbles.

And speaking of cookies, I may or may not have incorporated them into my afternoon snack :wink:

I’m holding them because I’m trying to show you that they’re small, but they look HUGE in this pic!  I swear, they were the two tiniest of the leftovers!  I scarfed them down with some Oikos Greek Strawberry yogurt. 

Are you guys into Greek yogurt yet?  I’m OBSESSED!  So good and so filling because of all that protein.  I was just reading, however, that you should alternate between Greek yogurt (great source of protein) with regular, low-fat or nonfat yogurt (more calcium).  Just figured I’d pass that along!  I’m going to start buying both at the store, I think.

Now let’s get onto the good stuff.  While the US was being awarded their silver medals, Mr. KD and I were getting ready to dig into something rich, creamy and GOLD: Crock Pot Baked Potato Soup!! 

Ohmygodohmygodohmygod!!!!!!!!!  THIS WAS SO GOOD!  I know I’m going to start saying that a lot on here, but I can’t help but get excited over delicious food and this deserves a YUMTASTIC AWARD.  It was OUTSTANDING :mrgreen:   Served with a dollop of light sour cream because that’s the best way to enjoy a soup like this!  Oh, and a small sprinkle of more cheese for garnish.  Obvi!

I was digging away at mine like this…….

And I looked over and saw this…..

Well, then, looks like Mr. KD was a fan.  Woudn’t you say?!?

As I stated earlier, my last trip to the grocery store was an epic fail and I have very little veggies left around the house.  I did, however, peruse my freezer to find some frozen spinach!  I know myself so well that I often buy extra frozen veggies just to save for nights like this!  I sauteed it up with some olive oil, minced garlic, parmesan cheese, salt and pepper.  Apparently, I was really into cheese tonight, huh? :wink:  

It was a great compliment to my soup!

I also meant to mention in my previous post that I made adjustments to this recipe.  They are as follows:

  • 2% cheddar cheese
  • 2% evaporated milk
  • center cut bacon

Well, my friends, I’m going to go hang out with Mr. KD and perhaps watch a movie to unwind before the hectic week begins!  Thanks again for reading!! :mrgreen:

Until we eat again…
