I am at work and I have a pear.  It is a very yummy pear. I am happy.

That is all.  :-)

What an odd question!  But I have to say, I love some weird stuff.  Sour cream and onion potato chips on my chicken or turkey sandwich.  Peanut butter, banana, and chips is also pretty good, despite how disgusting it sounds.  A croissant with a slice of cheese and onions is a good snack, lol. Hmmmm, I'm getting hungry now. 

Cooking

I have been a cooking fiend today!  I made a crab potato chowder, for lunches at work, and I currently have a meatloaf in the oven.  It is my very first attempt at a meatloaf, which I know is like the easiest thing in the world to make, but I was nervous.  My mom makes the absolute best meatloaf, so I followed her recipe, though I think I left the pepper out, damn.  

Oh, well.  It is currently cooking and smells good, so I'm not worried.  That will be dinner tonight and for when I get home from work.  I will make mashed potatoes probably tomorrow when I get home, as I will cheat and use the instant kind.  But ohhh, meatloaf!!!!

Also, I am making some raspberry crumble bars.  Hmmmmmmm.  Never made them before, but they seem to be coming along nicely.  Here's to hoping I don't poison myself with anything tonight!

I've found that I really like cooking, though for the longest time I was hopelessly useless at it and terrified of messing up.  Looking back, I have no idea why.  I mean, if it turned out horrible, then you just start over and know better next time.  I have no fear of changing a recipe now, and have found myself substituting things and adding seasoning.  I make a wicked chili and shepherd's pie!

I usually make a big pot of something during the weekend, since I'm at work 11 hours and don't really have the energy or time when I get home to make something.  I don't usually get home until 7:20pm, so by the time I heat something up it's pretty late.  Also, I have to be at work by 8, and honestly, I am so slow in the mornings I get up at 5:45 and am still sometimes late.  I like having a meal I can just throw in my lunchbox and then head out the door.  

Anyway, this boring post brought to you by the fact that it was 75F today, sunny, and my tummy didn't hurt!!!  I feel really good today, and I'm hoping that I can actually work the whole week without having to leave early or go home during the day to lay down for a few hours.  I worked an overtime shift on Thursday, and will do so again this Thursday, so hopefully that will be some extra money for me.  Yay!  How is everyone else doing?

My computer is still being a little bastard, so if I haven't commented, I'm sorry.  I'm still around and love you all.

Take care, and enjoy the rest of your weekends! 

((((HUGS Flist)))

Mmmmm...

Made potatoes with onions and sausage tonight.  Not the best thing to eat when you're trying to lose weight, but every now and then my Polish side breaks through and I have to eat something like that.  Hmmm, it was yummy.  Very bland, which was good because my tummy is still not great, but filling.  I had half a bowl and I'm stuffed.  

Don't know if I mentioned this, but my mom bought me several pieces of furniture at an estate sale.  I now have a coffee table, a dining room table, a dresser for the living room, and a desk for the hallway.  I have table cloths and place mats for the dining table and a runner for the desk. My apartment is really starting to look like some place an adult would live! 

Except for the Star Wars posters on the wall and my action figures dotted all about.  :P

Cake for breakfast.  It sounded like a good idea at the time?

Here is a picture of the giganto pop, as compared to a roll of paper towel.  Yes, I am easily amused.  It makes me a cheap date.

One of the few things that is almost always guaranteed to get rid of a headache is Chinese and caffeinated pop.  (I have a weird body, I know this.)  So I went and got take-out and ordered a large drink. I didn't realize I was getting the OMG-I-can-swim-in-that size.  I mean, seriously?  This this thing is huge!  Anyway, it did fit into my cup holder - barely.  And then the lid popped off.  As I was going 70.  Yeah, it was cold.  And I have a puddle on the floor of my car now.  

Still... The food did help the headache, and so did the pop, which I'm steadily drinking.  Though honestly, this thing could probably last me days, it's so large!  Sheesh.

Whoever invented chocolate chip cookie dough should be worshiped as one of the greatest inventors. I don't care if your not supposed to eat the stuff before you bake it. That's the best part of making cookies!

Ice cream cures everything. (Nods head wisely.) Especially mint chocolate chip.
