See Stephanie use leftovers... (o:


Had a fun time with dinner tonight. What's in the fridge? Hmm... chicken that needs used up, sausage that needs used up and a whole bunch of delicious (but need to be used asap!) homegrown tomatoes from my beautiful and wonderful sister in law April. Sadly but successfully, I used them all up.


Thanks for the tomatoes Apey!







Dan says it was good (he rated it 4 out of 5 stars), but I should keep it to just sausage or just chicken next time. Never thought I'd hear him tell me to limit the meats! (o:


The funny thing about using leftovers.... you tend to end up with even more leftovers when you're done! Now I need to figure out how to use up all the rest of that bow tie pasta! (o:



Alfredo, anyone???

Autumn Awesomeness

September is here... and so is my craving for all things autumn!!!

I love fall:
1. Cool, crisp air
2. Yummy fall produce (apples, pumpkins, squash!)
3. Football season
4. My birthday! (duh!)
5. Oranges and reds and yellows
6. A fresh change of seasons and the smell of new school supplies

So I know it technically is still summer, but I had to do something to hold myself over. Therefore I promptly lit my pumpkin spice candle and got busy making a yummy apple pie! Here's the final result:

















This fall I will be insanely busy. On Sept. 21st I'll begin my masters degree online. I know just about as much as you do about how that will go- I'm kinda nervous about taking classes, let alone an entire degree program online! Good thing there is a five-week trial period for me to try it out cost-free. I will also be working at least 25 hours a week at the daycare (just started two weeks ago!) and we'll see if I can handle my normal 10 hours a week at the YMCA on top of that! Prayers and cookie care packages are appreciated. Hehe.

I have officially been sick for forever now. I cannot stop coughing and I'm very tired since I can't sleep easily at night (coughing!). Its sometimes hard to breathe easily too (coughing!) and I find myself wheezing. My abs have gotten a workout though (coughing!) so at least that's a sort-of good thing. I'm ready for this to be done!

Good news for today though - my apartment gives the appearance of being clean! (And some of it really IS clean - just need to get to the spaces not visible to the unobservant eye). (o: AND... I have a delicious pie to eat.

Where Am I ????!!!!

Life has been very busy lately! I PROMISE you all that I will start blogging again soon! I just need to:

A: Get over this awful cold
B: Figure out how to juggle two jobs and an impending masters degree
C: Organize my stuff (its everywhere!) since I just bought a new desk
D: All of the Above!

If you haven't guessed it.... D is the correct answer! Sorry I haven't been able to catch you up on my new job and such. That will come soon I hope. But for now, I leave you with a cute picture of me and my brand new "nephew," Caesar.
