Cooking stuff for the first time with Jed is always a lot of fun, lately we decided we wanted to try out a new recipe together once a week at least. I like doing it this way so that I can blame him if it doesn’t turn out, ha! This week we tried out another one of Divas Can Cook‘s awesome recipe, the pizza casserole! When I first typed this out I typoed that as Sasserole which I think is now my new favorite name for kick-ass casseroles, ha!
|Preparing the ingredients!|
|Chopping up the veggies!|
|Mmm….looking good already!|
|Into the oven you go!|
It turned out very delicious! I think next time we will add a bit more cheese and possibly a bit more ground beef & pasta. It was very good exactly as written, though! We ate it with a side of salad and then as leftovers the next day.
We also made her pizza quesadillas for the second time, these are super easy and very, very tasty!
As I mentioned in the last Magpie’s Musings, I’m still super excited about Sailor Moon Crystal! The second episode came out introducing Sailor Mercury! She’s always been my least favorite senshi (sorry, Mercury fans- I find her boring!) but I was still excited to watch it! I definitely can’t wait for Mars & Venus to get introduced!
I chatted with you guys about this on facebook, but Colbie Caillat came out with a really neat video because she was tired of being photoshopped. I think this is definitely a positive message overall and one that’s desperately needed, but I’m also torn. When it comes to hair & makeup, definitely, I think it’s 90% to look good for other people (at least for me, but I’m not a heavy makeup wearer).
But she also mentioned nails. While I do agree that maybe men notice things like a sexy red polish or a nice french manicure, I for one do not do my nails for anyone else to think they look good, let alone men! It’s pretty much all for me. I love looking at sparkly things. I love creating a mini work of art on my nails. Sure, it’s fun to show it off but that’s definitely not a reason that I do it. So, I can see what she’s saying, and honestly it’s probably more referring to women who feel they need to get acrylics constantly, etc. But I got a little bit salty about that part!
Hmm…what else…oh, I really don’t wear makeup much especially these days since I rarely leave the house (#hermitlife) but I played around with it a bit the other day. It was fun, although I didn’t go anywhere, ha! I used mainly the Urban Decay Smoked Palette and the Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette.
I also got some super fun mail from a friend! I found out that she’d never tried KBShimmer (I KNOW, gasp!!!) so I sent her one that I had a duplicate of and she sent me this awesome package back!!
So…that’s about it, nothing too much went on this week. Did you guys do anything fun?
