Oreo Truffles

oreo trufflesI took pictures but it’s at home, so I’m going to post one I found online. I can’t remember the site, but feel free to ping me if it’s your photo. I’ll replace with my own sometime soon.

I brought these into work and everyone raved about it. I think I’ll recreate them at Christmas time.

Oreo Truffle Balls or Dirt Balls

8 ounces cream cheese, softened
16 ounces oreos, broken into quarters
Enough best quality white chocolate chopped to measure about 2 cups

In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese for a couple minutes to smooth out. Add in just over 1/2 of the broken oreos and mix until thoroughly combined. Add in the rest of the oreos and mix just until combined – some bigger pieces are ok.

Cover bowl and chill for at least 2-3 hours. Scoop out dough with a heaping teaspoon and roll into 50-60 balls. Cover and place back in the refrigerator to firm up.

Slowly melt the white chocolate in a double boiler, stirring occasionally, until most of the chunks are smooth. Remove and stir to melt the rest of the chocolate. Dip each truffle ball and set aside on a silpat or parchment paper. If the chocolate mixture starts to firm up, place back over the double boiler to slowly remelt, or gently rewarm in the microwave. Store in the refrigerator after all are dipped.

Movie Review

We saw Gone Baby Gone Saturday night. Highly recommend it, although it’s not something I would watch again due to the subject matter. I would have to commend Ben Affleck for his directorial skills. The movie is thought-proking in that it makes you think of what is actually right and wrong. There are certain scenes that you probably dont want to think of ever, but unfortunately stuff like that happens in real life and people need to be more aware of it. Definitely not for a child, so don’t bring them.

On a different note, I decided to wear one of my new boots. My foot is burning hot. I want to take them off, but I bet it’s been sweaty and now smelly. AHHHH, wish I had a spare pair of shoes.

Halloween

Now that we have a house…I’m excited about each and every holiday, because we get to not only decorate, but see trick or treaters. Unfortunately though, we may have to bypass this one. Reesey go bark crazy when the doorbell rings, in fact, she goes nuts when the doorbell rings on tv. So what do we do?? Turn off the lights? Go out to dinner that night? Leave Reesey in the backyard so we can pass out candy? Who knows, I wish she wasn’t so yappy some times. Oh well, just because we can’t pass out candy to annoying teenagers or cute kids doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy it. I bought two pumpkins the other day and Brian and I will be carving our first pumpkins together. Awwwww…..

Need Sleep

So Brian flew down to Austin for work last night which left me alone at home. Is this the first time I’m home alone in the new house? I can’t remember. Anyway, I couldn’t sleep. It felt like I wasn’t sleeping in my own bed just because Brian wasn’t home. I finally dozed off at 2am. Should’ve let Reesey sleep in the bed. At least she let me sleep in until my alarm went off, or maybe I just don’t hear her in the wee hours of the morning.

I have dinner in the crockpot, so once I get home, I’m gonna chill and possible sleep.

Tacky? I think not.

So I bought this wooden spoon and knife set at Hobby Lobby. You know the much debates ones from Everybody Loves Raymond. Brian thinks their hideous, but I think his view is skewed by that episode. Anyway, here is evidence that I’m not the only tacky person in this world. Her decor inspires me.

I’ve been searching for this type of clock everywhere.

To credit this person, here’s her nestie bio with more pictures:Bio

Need some OCD habits

I need some OCD in my life. Both of us are just lazy in general. But after doing 4 loads of laundry this past Sunday, I figured that’s the last thing I want to spend my weekend doing.

Soo…”everynight” when I cook dinner, I should also prepare lunch for the next day.

Dishwashers should be unloaded in the mornings, which means when the alarm goes out the first time, I should get my ass up.

Secondly, when brushing my teeth at night, I should straighten up the bathroom counter and wipe things down so we both can wake up to a clean bathroom counter.

We should start a load of laundry in the mornings when we wake up, and dry the clothes when we get home and do the folding while watching tv.

I always lose my watch and sometimes keys, we to keep those things in one spot.

Online BillPay is a Godsend, and Brian takes care of all the bills, I sure hope he’s not late with any of them, since I don’t know what the bills we are paying…

Workout bag should also be packed the night before because I’m always scrambling to get out the door the next morning.

I think if we at least attempt these things, morning routines wouldn’t feel so rushed, and Sunday afternoons aren’t all about laundry.

Sad

One day before shooting began, Mark Wahlberg stepped in to replace Ryan Gosling in “The Lovely Bones,” the Peter Jackson-directed adaptation of the Alice Sebold novel for DreamWorks. Gosling was miscasted anyway. He seems too young to be playing a father. Although Markie Mark isn’t so bad himself. We just saw “We Own the Night” on Saturday. The movie was ok…

I am determined to watch every movie Ryan Gosling has made.

I am lame.
