Mario Mania

Even though this is a food blog, I ain’t talking about this Mario. I’ve spent waaaay too much time kicking it with Super Mario Galaxy on the Wii. Sad, isn’t it? I blame my sister’s bf, for reminding me of how much fun the game is, therefore prompting me to pull out my Wii and find me some stars   I think all the Mario games have to be my favourite. What’s your favourite video game, old school or new?

Fortunately, I was able to tear myself away from the TV to make some lunch. And by make, I mean assemble leftovers on a plate and reheat.

I brought out the broccoli polenta, wild mushroom gravy, and cheddar cheese. Instead of stacks, I made more of a “polenta nacho”. I’m sort of reaching with the nacho description, but let’s just go with it.

Each polenta square was topped with wild mushroom gravy, heated up, then crowned with some shredded cheddar, nacho style.

I was outside with my plate to take photos, and thought it needed a pop of green, so I broke into the chive plant again. It seems to be my go to fresh herb these days.

I considered going to cardio kickboxing with my sister this afternoon, but my hips aren’t feeling so great today. When she came home and said she wasn’t going, that made up my mind for me – no kickboxing today. I think I’ll hit up the gym after dinner instead, and do some things that won’t aggravate my hips instead. Plus it will keep me away from the Mario games 😉

Time to watch the news and help prep dinner

    Oh so get this. You of all people will appreciate… our Wii broke. We sent it in. We got back A NEW WII and all our saves were gone! 60 hours of Animal Crossing. 2 COMPLETED galaxy saves… le sigh.

    Favorite game: Animal Crossing. no doubt. Oh and Peggle 🙂

    I want that lunch, plain and simple. I’m HORRIBLE at video games – no coordination skills what so ever! However, Frogger is probably my fav!

    I’m not much into video games at all, but I do like the “active” Wii games. Once winter rolls around I’ll play it more.

    That polenta still looks rockin! 😉
