Joys of technology




There is nothing sexier than a man with good taste. And my hubby has good taste. During our remodeling of the livingroom, you will recall that the TV was causing issues due to its rather large size and our desire to have not so deep shelves. Problem solved! After doing some research - asking brilliant people named Chris and Mike what to buy and checking the web - it was discovered that now (pre-Super Bowl Sunday)is the time to buy a great TV for a great price. So after picking my hubby up from his red-eye flight from California and feeding him breakfast, I suggested ("Since we're out here."{we live in the boonies}) that we pop into Circuit City and check out the deals. We dilligently compared TV, I asked more questions, boys whined they wanted to be elsewhere and with great speed (likely due to a tired hubby) we made a choice ! (see photo) A very technologically savvy shiny black SKINNY TV that does great things. And even with only a measly attenae (no cable!!!no thanks!) we are able to get a few extra stations and the others have never looked so good! All of this is madebetter by the on-sale-at-Target purchase that is old technology but works great!Life is good my friends! Even better when you have a talented, smart, good lookin' spouse who happens to have great taste!

It's a 26 inch - any bigger and it would have dwarfed the space. Any we have room available on the couch for the game - we were discussing the menu at dinner. So far we are having: mini franks, idiot dip, guacamole, chicken wings, taquitos and lime chips. Smirnoff Ice, beer and pop included. And we're just watching for the commercials!

I just checked my mail, and I don't see my invite!

Am so disappointed. I would have brought a bottle of Bailey's to join the 'party'...

there was a hilarious pre-superbowl commercial played in the indianapolis win but now i can't remember what it was...i'm sure it'll turn up in the big game...i'm sooooo curious...what's in idiot dip? i'm thinking the name is for people like me who can only make recipes 101 but it sounds good...maybe i'll have to try it!

p.s.-i made this superbowl cake one year i think your boys would love to do! maybe you too reasonenough... it was actually a football field and the players were rolos and the yard lines were white chocolate chips and the field goals i think were twizzlers and the frosting was green, etc...it was actually pretty cool :) oh here it is...Hershey's gridiron cake...yay for the Internet! http://www.cooksrecipes.com/recipe_holiday_pics/hershey's_gridiron_cake.jpg

@navilyn - bring chole and you can come anytime!
@sister k - idiot dip is spreading cream cheese in the bottom of a shallow dish, topping it with salsa, then shredded cheese (cheddar &or pepper jack), jalepenos(optional) and black olives(optional) and bake at 350 til it bubbles - serve with chips! And definately bring the cake!

Are taquitos a kind of chip?

Fraukow said...

taquitos are found in the frozen mexican section of your grocery store - they are torilla shells rolled around beef or chicken (we like chicken) and you bake them. they are crunchy and totally addictive!
