    I awoke this morning feeling

    so satisfied and revitalized from the night before that I made my baby some breakfast in bed! Bacon, eggs, hash browns, toast with apple butter, a cup of fruit salad and chocolate chip banana nut muffins for a little something sweet! Aww love!

    Our dinner--B/L S/L chicken thighs marinated in

    olive oil, lemon juice, Rosemary, sage, and garlic; barley salad with cucumber, feta and mint; yellow squash and onions sautéed with garlic, olive oil and red pepper flakes. Soooo delish!

    I really love cooking.

    Not only does it relax me after work, it's creative, technical and a chance to learn about other cultures. Plus, there's always something new to learn.

    But I am absolutely awful at it.

    I made a apple pie today and burnt the side parts. Annnnnd I made cookies today which guess what? I burnt those too :P. But it's fun (and frustrating) to cook and/or bake.

    My Moment Of Pride

    Meatloaf, buttered rice,
