What’s your favorite thing to do with a Pomegranate?

Last night I made a lovely glaze out of some fresh pomegranate juice (pomegranates came from Panache Food), fresh orange juice, lemon juice, lemon zest,  Garces Trading Company pomegranate vinegar and a little brown sugar.  Then I drizzled it over top of some chicken – yum!

Verizon follow-up

So I spoke with a lady in the Escalations Department, and she’s going to help me out! Yay.  So we will not have to pay an Early Termination fee.  So glad this is taken care of and out of the way! :)

*tap tap* is this thing on?

wow. remember me? i haven’t updated this bad boy in ages. honestly, i didn’t even look at the date of my last post. it’s been that long! i’m a bad blogger, as i figured i would be.

but there’s been lots going on in the one curly fry household that has kept me busy. we put our house on the market and we’re moving (once it sells). holy stress, batman! i absolutely HATE selling a house. this is my first time, and i don’t recommend it.

we’re going to move from the ‘burbs into the big city, so we’re really excited. we’re just ready for the house to sell and to close this chapter of our lives. we’re ready to begin the new chapter.

so in the mean time, we’ve been selling stuff on craigslist (can’t wait til that’s over!) and i’ve been stocking up on groupon deals for different restaurants/food places/etc down in the city. we bought quite a few and can’t wait to use them once we move! click the link above to sign up for groupon – it’s so neat! they have some awesome deals. i know i’ve mentioned it before – and i’m saying it again! :p

hopefully the next time i update i can say that my house in under contract…*fingers crossed*
