fnpn : week in review

Posted on Jan 14, 2011 in Food, Lifestyle

Pizza of the week:

Bacon, pineapple and feta on my whole wheat crust. Hands down our favorite pizza topping combination.

Best thing I ate or drank this week:

Prosciutto-wrapped bison burgers with blue cheese. Recipe to come this weekend.

Best workout of the week:

My marathon, two-hour session at the gym on Sunday. 3 mile run, 15 minutes rowing machine, 30 minutes walking, 30 minutes circuit training, 15 minutes stretching. I burned 1,044 calories.

Best deal of the week:

This hat. For $1.59, shipped. Please, please, please follow Money Saving Mom to get notified of deals like these. I scoop up so much awesome stuff because of her posts! And this hat is SO warm and SO cute.

Best of the Internet for the week:

This recipe from Paula Deen. I recommend reading the reviews for a good laugh.

Appropriately, I shared this with Mama Pea on Twitter and she was most appreciative.

Favorite blog post of the week:

Angela’s post over at Oh She Glows with a delicious-looking recipe for No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Chews. Um. Yum! Need to make these this weekend.


Favorite purchase of the week:

None, other than the aforementioned hat. I don’t think I bought anything other than that and groceries. Woohoo for goal #1!

Favorite photo of the week:

I love all the bright colors from the snow ice cream photoshoot.

Saddest moment of the week:

Probably the same for everyone—finding out about the shootings in Arizona.

Happiest moment of the week:

Snowwwwww daysssss!

Scariest moment of the week:

Climbing a tree.

Triumph of the week:

Organizing my utensil drawer. Seriously, this makes me SO happy. And I purged so many unused gadgets.

Warm and fuzzy moment of the week:

Seeing so many people react positively to this self-portrait by Babyface. Awesomesauce, right? I have a fantastically talented husband. And it makes me all giddy and proud to see him all giddy and proud.


  1. lol, I totally posted that Paula Deen recipe link in my LJ! The comments are just epic.

  2. Also, dammit, that site is enough to make me hop on the couponing bandwagon. She’s so organized with how she presents the deals! I signed up for a ton of them. After spending $80 at the grocery store tonight and feeling like I got very little, I have to do something.

    • I just follow her on Facebook and then her deals get published to my feed. I ignore the ones I don’t want and jump on the ones I do. :)

  3. Thanks for the great links in your blog…love the moneysavingmom site…like you, I’m looking to save a lot of money this year…and those cookie/candy chews…oh my!!!

    • I love Money Saving Mom! And I’m definitely making those chews this weekend.

  4. I’m almost speechless at that Paula Deen recipe, but not so much that I can’t laugh like crazy!
