The DVR Lives!

by Meghann on November 12, 2008

Exciting news! My DVR is ok!!!! I guess it just needed to sleep a little bit, unplugging the machine for a couple of minutes did the trick. I was even able to watch my shows that recorded last night!! By the way how sick are you of Vicky on The Biggest Loser? Forget Phil being annoying, I want her gone! Way to go to Amy for kicking Brady out the door! Sorry… sidetrack….anyways….

Dinner tonight was uneventful. I did, however, use up some great food from my freezer and pantry!

I heated up a frozen Apple Chicken Sausage and wrapped it up in half of a Flat Out Wrap with some yummy Sauerkraut.

I <3 Sauerkraut & Apple Chicken Sausage! If you haven’t tried it I would highly suggest using the Flat Out wrap in place of a bun. Half of the wrap is the perfect size and you don’t get the bulkiness that a regular hot dog bun offers.

On the side I had a Reduced Fat Cheese Stick (which I cut in pieces for more bites) and some Frozen Okra I heated up in the oven with a Cajun seasoning blend I had in my cabinet.

As I was preparing the meal I kept thinking it was missing something, like fries or chips, but as soon as I started eating it all of those thought faded away. This meal was great as is.

Dessert was something I did a while back and thought tonight would be the perfect time to recreate it. Of course my pictures were not nearly as good as before. ๐Ÿ™‚

I started with 9 mini Meringues

Which are of course great on their own, but even better dipped in melted chocolate.

Such a great dessert! I just relaxed in front of the TV dipping the yummy meringues. I always think how life without dessert just would not be very fun, would it?

To back up, I did have a snack this afternoon of a Kashi Pumpkin Granola Bar. ๐Ÿ™‚

I need to go pack, but I am just too lazy. I will probably end up packing as I rush to get out the door on Friday morning again. I’m the worst procrastinator ever!

Love apple chicken sausages!

I am sick of Vicky too! I was thinking about the annoying blue team on my bus ride home today, haha. I don’t care how annoying Phil was, Vicky was just straight up hateful! I was glad when Brady was voted off too.

Very glad your DVR is ok! That would have been terrible.

I’ve never had saurkraut at all or okra.

Glad to hear your DVR is better! I would be lost without mine, too…I’d have to actually watch commercials!!!
And I am a Vicky hater as well. And I was soooooooo happy last night when Amy voted Brady off! Hopefully Vicky will be next!

Mmm, meringues. I need to buy some more toffee ones. Those things were uh-mazing.

13 jess November 12, 2008 at 11:19 pm

Aw man, I haven’t had okra in so long! My grandma is from oklahoma and is a huge fan of okra (but only Very deep fried, not exactly my cup of tea). I was so happy to find it in the frozen section and experiment.

Yay for the phoenix dvr!!!

Glad the DVR is ok – I’ve had problems with mine before too and it’s no fun when shows get deleted! I’m glad yours were safe ๐Ÿ™‚

Love how you cut up the cheese stick! And that dessert sounds amazing – life definitely wouldn’t be as good without a sweet treat to end the evening!

I agree VICKY NEEDS TO GO! She is just so mean!

I LOVE sauerkraut so much I can practically eat it out of the can cold!

I love sauerkraut! It was a huge staple growing up although I didn’t like it then. Funny how that happens! Will have to try your combo!

17 catms916 November 13, 2008 at 12:59 pm

yay fot the DVR working!!! That was close…

Um agreed. Saurkraut = love. Especially since my last name happens to be Saur!

my TiVo (DVR) died a while back and it was a sad day…the hard drive went out on it, so we had to replace it. *sniffle*

anyway…i LOVE those pumpkin kashi crunchy granola bars. they’ve been my morning snack quite often lately!
