i can't spare a square...

So. Yesterday I was shopping, yet again, and found myself getting pissed. Not just a little bit either. I was beginning to become irate. Wanna know why?........

Because being played on the muzak system at Macy's was "Let It Snow"! Hellloooooo....this is South Florida, for starters, it will never snow here, so don't get my hopes up. Secondly, it's really bothering me that the decorations have come out, the santas are out and now, the music is playing overhead. I bet tomorrow if I run to CVS, they'll have the Christmas crap on sale for 75% off and Valentine's Day cards will be out! It's ridiculous.

Have a couple of companies I want to plug here today - took the family for our Christmas card photo -

Got them taken at Kiddie Kandids - those places in Babies R Us stores - it was fantastic. I was in and out of there in an hour and it really is affordable!! Highly recommend. Also, went online to design our Christmas card (I'm just trying to have everything here and ready for me to get them sent out on December 1st). I normally order from Wal-Mart, but this year - shutterfly! Awesome designs. You can change and customize the greetings and the fonts. They're way cool and only a few cents more than Wal-Mart.

Oh, and in case you're wondering....I had a Seinfeld moment today in a public bathroom, as evidenced by my title. The poor woman next to me couldn't get the TP out of the holder-thingy. So of course, she and I both are quoting Seinfeld in the bathroom. Too funny. Geez, I miss that show.

Oh - and the recipe for the leftover turkey - yummy.
2 cups (or so) of chopped turkey (I used jennie-o sundried tomato seasoned turkey)
8 oz of pasta (macaroni or penne - I used rice penne b/c my hubcaps is allergic to wheat), cooked.
Saute onions and bell peppers (and celery, but again, allergy so I eliminated) in 2T of olive oil.
Then add:
one can of cream of chicken soup (or whatever kind you want, really)
1/3 cup of sour cream
you're supposed to put like 1/3 of a cup of milk, but I was out
CHEESE - I used handfuls of: sharp cheddar, monterey jack and mozzarella
(the recipe called for cheddar, mozz, gouda so you could be super creative here)
I salted and peppered it and then added 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
Mix those ingredients together until it is gooey, then add your noodles and tuna to it.
pour it all in a lightly greased 9x13 pan and top with more cheese
Bake at 350 until golden (mine only took about 20 minutes - I think because I didn't add the milk, so it wasn't too liquidy)
ALSO, the recipe called for 4 ounces of frozen broccoli - didn't have that either....hope this recipe makes sense. It was delish!!!!
Have a fantabulous weekend!!
