I. Am. Tired.
In fact, I am so tired that keeping up with the blog this week has almost been a chore. I love writing, editing, cooking, photographing, and everything about this blog. This is my happy place. It really is.
YOU make this my happy place.
It amazes me when I get feedback from anyone other than my mother about my recipes. I just love that what I write and post touches other people by making life easier or inspires them to try something new.
I know I don’t say it enough but THANK YOU!
Despite my fatigue, which is the result of lots of stuff, when I started editing these photos I got all giddy inside. I had taken these pictures a couple weeks ago before my unfortunate meet up with the mother of all colds and hadn’t looked at them since.
They turned out rather fabulous, if I am to be perfectly honest. And I’m not at all trying to sound conceded. Photography is not exactly my forte so a “photo shoot” can actually be quite a chore when I’m not in the right frame of mind. It’s actually a lot like exercising for me…I feel the best and most accomplished when it’s over.
I don’t want my photography in any way to turn you off to the fact that these really are meals I make for my family either. In fact, as soon as I finished shooting these pics I moved the food from the floor right to our dinner table. The whole shoot took maybe 15 minutes from set up to final shot.
I haven’t been doing a lot of photography this week because I am still recovering from that cold I mentioned and, at the risk of this post turning into the “poop diaries” my kids have been suffering from less than favorable diapers. Which means lots of wrestling, Desitin everywhere, and more baths than I can count.
Not exactly the perfect prescription for cooking, baking, writing, photographing, etc.
I am definitely ready for the weekend. The weekend means relaxation. And this particular weekend means mr comes home to stay indefinitely until the next business trip at least.
All of these ramblings have little to do with food except for the fact that this is my kinda weekend meal. It requires very little work which is just what I need.
