Good News / Bad News

It’s been one of those days. You know, the kind where you start something with the best of intentions and something else gets in the way; or you get distracted. In my case, it was less of the first and more of the latter. I’ll give you examples.

Good News – I decided to tackle my freezer; it needed to be reorganized.

Yes, that’s vodka in the top drawer. For penne. Don’t judge.

Bad New – I got distracted by what I found.

Good News – I am now infusing old frozen vanilla beans in the vodka for the win AND I found a bag of frozen dinner rolls that make the perfect winter coat for the Pumpkin Spice Kisses Megan sent me.

Kisses in frozen rolls = dessert in a pinch, literally.

Once the dough rises around the kisses, I’ll pinch them shut, bake them off, and smother them in a caramel glaze. Yes way!

Bad News – If The Complete Package doesn’t pitch in to help eat these, I’m going to be in trouble. Serious trouble. Which brings me to the…

Good News – It’s sweat pants season! Wahoo!

Cheer Sweats by Nike; love the ‘Hook ‘Em Horns’ orange

Bad News – I never finished organizing the freezer because I found the end of a bag of frozen shredded hashbrown potatoes way in the back.

Good News – I decided hashbrowns with soft-fried eggs smothered in Texas Brew Salsa was absolutely essential for today’s lunch. It was a good call.

Bad News – It was gone way too quickly, just like our Texas Brew Salsa Giveaway this week.

Good News – You still have time to enter! Comments close at 9:00pm CST Friday, October 5th so click here and leave a comment. You could win a big box of Texas Brew Salsa of your very own. And that’s always good news.

Texas Brew Salsa – it’s *that* good!

  1. Hashbrowns, salsa, and impromptu treats–sounds like all good news to me! Forgoing housework in favor of food is always a good thing. Love the way your mind works!

  2. How much fun are you!? I feel like I’m in good company, as getting side-tracked is my norm…Sounds like a very productive side-tracking though, which isn’t always my case. :)
    YUMMMMY is the only other thing I have to say. Love all your creative ideas in the kitch!
    aloha friend, from crisp and sunny Washington State.

    • Aloha, Monica! Sounds like you and your boys are enjoying your vacation in Washington state. I’m loving the photos you’ve posted on your blog. Gig Harbor is gorgeous!

  3. I don’t know what I love more; I’m a freak for eggs with salsa, and a sucker for anything with caramel.

    • How about….. both! My eggs & salsa lunch rocked. Unfortunately, the kisses in rolls didn’t turn out as I’d hoped. I’m afraid that bag of rolls was forgotten for too long. After 4 hours in a sunny window, they were the same size they were when frozen. I think the yeast died and went to hot roll heaven months ago. It’s a shame, but it happens.

  4. love the hash browns and eggs…lol…you are making me hungry….easy and simple…way to go and thanks so much for all the salsa love :) Brenda
