Test blog. Just set up my cell phone.


yes, monday. im not a big fan of mondays, and today was no exception. i think the only good thing about today was that rachel is back from vacation. i wasnt working alone today, trying to do my job and 2 others.

im pretty excited to post my first food pic tonight. i am so ready for a vacation, im tired and grumpy, and wanted something easy for dinner. we had bisquick chicken pot pie. it looked pretty, but i think it could have been better. i added some pepper, garlic and parsley to the batter, but it was still on the bland side. live and learn.

in other news... in 10 days i will be in my favorite place in the world: my grandparent's house. thanksgiving in maryland. and let me take the time now to state that i hate texas. i despise this entire state and i will run far away the first chance i get. for now, im stuck here and i feel like i will be here the rest of my life.

tomorrow i have another appt with the culinary instutite. im pretty sure i want to go to this school, and i think at this point im tring to be convinced thats its the better one. its so much closer. im ready for this. its taken me 10 years to be ready to go back to school. wish me luck!

sweet dreams!

today was visit #2 to school #2. i really cant decide which one i want to give all my money to. (ive been looking into culinary school, for those of you who dont talk to me daily). i prety much had my heart set on the art institute, but now i just dont know. i think the lenotre school could be just as good, maybe even better. and closer, which means less gas money. and lets face it, there is no additional income coming in during schooling. im going to sleep on it.

this morning started out pretty rough. started out mourning the loss of a great woman. my great aunt passed away today, and im taking it harder than i would have thought. i love her very much, but we werent as close as i am to some of the rest of my family. lately there has been quite a bit of death around me. i know it happens to everyone sooner or later, and its part of growing up. but it doesnt hurt an less. she was a fascinating woman. she traveled the world and was always willing to talk about anything. she had more stories and memories than anyone i know. then again, she may have been the oldest person i knew, somewhere in her 80's. it really makes me not want to take love for granted. let the ones you love know it, and show it often.

sweet dreams.

ok, so im starting a little premature here. i want a place to talk about food. i love food. lately i have been reading many blogs and i wanted one of my own. so here it is.

next month we (the hubs and i) will be leaving this dreadful apartment and upgrading to a whole house. a real house! where there will be no one living above us, and no one fighting over parking. and a real kitchen, and a yard! i think at the moment, those are my two favorie things. i am already planning my garden. and likewise, what i can make from home grown goodness. and that, my friends, is where this come from. cooking my garden. i want to live greener, and eat greener, and be healthly.

i look forward to hearing from all you... once youve discovered my little corner of the world. good night!
