A couple of weeks ago, I blogged about a menu item at one of our local restaurants. It was a Peanut Butter Burger. A hamburger patty with hickory smoked bacon, cheddar cheese, tomato, lettuce, onion, mayo and, of course, peanut butter.
I was intrigued when I read that but immediately discarded it from my choices. But as the day went on, and the days turned into weeks, I kept thinking about the dang peanut butter burger!
So...DH and I headed to the Ram for dinner tonight and I ordered that darn burger! And I ate it!! The whole darn thing! And it was tasty! I'm glad I ate it. Now it no longer has it's hold on me!
The good news is that I don't have to eat it again. It was okay, but not habit forming. Now on to Super Bowl food!

Holy moly! This week is taking forever. And I'm not the only one who feels this way. All week, it has seemed like the week should be over, or almost over, and it hasn't been!
It is finally Friday Eve! And I still feel like the week should have ended long ago! Does anyone have a time machine? I'd like it to be tomorrow at this time....now!

For lunch today, I went with some co-workers to a restaurant called "The Ram." It is one of those restaurants that I don't go to with my family because DS can't eat anything there, DD won't eat anything there and DH isn't interested. Whatever.
As I was reading the menu, I saw that they had a burger called "The Peanut Butter Burger." Here is the description.
Peanute butter, cheddar, hickory smoked bacon, sliced tomato, lettuce and mayo 9.99
BTW...they spelled peanut with the extra "e" on their website. I just copied and pasted!
Okay, so I like peanut butter. I really like peanut butter. And I'm a fan of the cheddar and the bacon and the tomato and the lettuce. Not so much on the mayo. But...put it all together? I'm not sure about that! I ordered a grilled chicken sandwich with monterey jack cheese, no sauce, and fries. (Fries were VERY salty so I only ate a few). I was satisfied and pleased and pretty darn proud of myself for ordering a fairly healthy meal.
But now I want to try that PB Burger! Dang it! It is on my mind and it is haunting my taste buds and it is luring me back to that restaurant. Gosh darn it!! Maybe I can order a sampler? Or make my own?

I have a magazine (Woman's World) that I read. It is a weekly periodical and every week they have new ways to keep your hair shiny or your nails perfectly manicured or whatever. (BTW...I'm about six months behind, so this was a June issue)
The week that I'm reading has the headline "Kitchen Cures for Gorgeous Skin." Now, I know what they mean. They are going to give us great hints on using items that we already have in our kitchens to make our skin gorgeous.
But that's not what it says. It says they are going to *cure* our gorgeous skin with stuff from the kitchen. I don't have gorgeous skin, so I don't need to cure it. But if I did...I still wouldn't want to cure it! LOL!
Okay...done with semantics and whatever else this is called. Just wondering if anyone else sees stuff like this and wonders if magazines hire proof readers any more.

I have decided that I need to restart my lifting routine. Lifting upper body, for me, is easy. By that, I mean that I know lots of different exercises for each muscle group. I can vary the routine fairly easily using free weights, machines or a combination. No problem!
However, lower body is another story. I won't use the inner/outer thigh machine. Too likely to cause an injury. The leg press is the wrong exercise for my body type (my booty is the size it needs to be, thank you!). I've done lunges, both standing and walking, and I'm currently doing squats. I also do calf raises. That's it. Not very much variety. And because of that, I get bored with my lower body routine very quickly.
Does anyone have any a ideas? I do my workout at a gym, so there are machines, weights, resistance bands, etc. available. However, no PC or video player so videos aren't an option. I think I will add some plyometrics, but would like ideas there as well. I'm open for suggestions. Flood me!
