I got some new kicks! :D

I’ve always had good luck with Nike’s, and after asking for some advice on Twitter, someone pointed me to the Nike Pegasus shoes.

They are so comfy! Super squishy, yet sturdy. The guy at the store told me they’ll hold up for a long time and are good for longer runs. Done and done. I can’t wait to take them for a spin run. :)

While we were shopping, Ben and I pondered what to have for dinner. We decided on something warm and cheesy. :D Turkey Apricot Melts it was!

I started with some fresh ciabatta rolls that I picked up from the deli section at the grocery store today. Two for $.99 – can’t beat it!

To the rolls, I added low-sodium deli turkey,

and cheddar cheese.

The top of the buns were slathered with some apricot preserves – oh.yum!

Onto a foil-lined baking sheet…

and placed under the broiler until they reached crusty, melty perfection!

Oh yeah, baby. :)

What an easy and satisfying Saturday night dinner! The outsides of the rolls got nice and crunchy from the broiler, while the cheddar cheese oozed down over the insides. Un-be-liev-able!

The apricot jam was nice and sweet against the savory cheese and turkey.

On the side, for some crunch, some Kettle Cooked Sharp Cheddar Chips.

Normally, we’re a Poore Brothers Parmesan Garlic (now “Border Canyon” – don’t get me started) kind of couple, but the store was out! :( It ended up being kind of a good thing though, because these were awesome! Soooooo crunchy and flavorful.

Enjoyed with our feet up on the coffee table, college basketball playing in the background. :)

Oh yeah, with a Sam’l Smith Organic Raspberry Ale!

I haven’t had one of these since a happy hour I went to a loooooong time ago – I am dying to drink it! Do you like fruity beers?

Tonight is a battle of NCAA conference tournaments vs The Hurt Locker. Guess who wants what? ;)

Don’t forget to set your clocks forward tonight! We lose an hour :( but it’ll be light out for so.much.longer. now – wheeee!!! I can’t wait!

Have a great night!


Do you drink alcohol? What’s your favorite drink?

I don’t drink alcohol all that much anymore – maybe twice a month?  But my favorite drinks are Lindemans Framboise and Mojitos. Mojito, mojito, mojito!
