This Saturday

Today, I loved living in Chicago. Andrew and I went to brunch, drank mimosas then got on the bus and headed downtown.

Since September, Andrew has had weekends off, and it's been really awesome but we tend to sleep in late and sit around all day and do nothing. Which, don't get me wrong... IS awesome.

But, I thought its time we start doing something with our weekend days! So.. Today we did. We went to the Museum of Contemporary art! It was pretty empty in there but it was really great to be downtown and see a little art. After we left  we wandered into a few shops (i mean.. we WERE downtown)...we got back on the bus.... where I sat next to a real smelly homeless lady (not awesome). Then got off and stopped at the grocery store and bought fixings for dinner and then walked home....

So... Dinner... a few days ago I pinned on pinterest stuffed peppers...and I was going to make them last week when I had the girls over for girls night... (yay top chef!!! My guy is still in!!) - more on that in another post. ....

Got off track there... Stuffed peppers! I decided I needed to give them a practice round on my husband so we decided to make them tonight!  We used this recipe  from All - but used ground turkey and brown rice.

It was a real good Saturday ! The peppers are in the oven as I type and Andrew did most of the work so.... I can't really say I made them. Ha! I watched diligently with my glass of wine. That's something right?!?

Here are some photos of my day via my cell phone and my ole favorite instagram.  And of course they are out of order again because i am blogging from my phone.  dang!

Cut, washed and ready to go
When andrew took over....
My new game changer rice cooker *(thanks Margo and Heather)  and the meat.....
pre-cooked stuffed peppers - then we threw them in the oven!
at the MCA
At the MCA, they were setting up for a real fancy party..i asked one of the caterers.."how does one get invited to a party like this?" - He had no idea. .. the set up was amazing.
More Art
At brunch- all set for V-Day
Coffee, Mimosa, Bloody Mary... the essential breakfast.

So that's my day.. Hope your was good too!  I am sure the peppers will be good.. but they are STILL in the oven... ooops.. didn't realize they need to be in there an hour.  dang.

And tomorrow going to a friend's house for a super bowl party!  GO GIANTS!   Andrew's parents and sister and aunts and cousins are all at the game.  It's gonna be a good one.  And i am making deviled eggs that look like footballs!  Thanks Pinterest!...   i'll make sure to post them tomorrow.

Happy Weekend!
