The weather got pretty snarky in the DFW area. It drizzled on and off most of the day – then WHABAM!

I  just made my dinner (a scrumptious breakfast plate) and sat down to eat when the sirens started wailing.

My immediate thought was: “Don’t Panic.” For some reason, all I could visualize was Mike, running around – panicking.

The beau, always good for it, broke the tension by opening the patio door to take a step outside.
Him: “I don’t know what the big deal is. It’s not even windy. It’s calm.”
Me: “Yes, babe. That’s where the phrase ‘the calm before the storm’ comes from. Please get inside. “

[Our life. Seriously.]

We shuttled into the bathroom with a candle, lighter, flashlight and our phones/laptop. Our apartment rumbled a bit – mega creepy – and then, my tummy spoke up.
I left my avocado sandwich behind!

Hindsight: Shouldn’t have made the beau go out and save my sammich.

Life over limb situations should never go up against food. That’s just plain un-fair! Besides, I’m a foodie.
Food wins – Every. Single. Time.

Here we are, in the middle of a twister’s playland, when all I can think of is Helen Hunt handing out steaks. [I must have been hungrier than I thought]

Thinking about steaks…well, I started an image search and found this juicy piece of meat.

I’m hitting up this place in Ontario, as soon as I can! 😀
For now, I’ll roll up my tongue and move on to making healthier meals.
I started with cupcakes. Tomorrow, my pretties. Tomorrow.

Tonight – it’s late and time for bed.
Be ready and excited for my next post!

I’ve got a step-by-step tutorial for Making Your Own Pallet Garden! [we made ours last weekend]!

Also…molten chocolate cupcakes. Smack those lips!


Happy Noshing!
