Saturday ~ You're Going to Think All I Do Is Eat

Oh you wonderful readers, you.
 
Yes, I'm laying it on so that you'll forgive me for  posting yet again about all the food that I eat. I promise that I do have a life beyond just sitting around all day and eating! Really. I promise. But food is the most exciting thing going on around here, so...
 
And come on, everybody likes food! One of the few things I really just can't bare to live without, ifyaknowwhatImean...
 

I had a dinner date with my freshly arrived Merlin last night.Oh and can we just take a moment to appreciate the food that inside of that bowl? Notice that it's not Mac & Cheese. Or a chicken-from-a-can sandwhich. Or take-out. Nope, it's an honest-to-goodness cooked-on-the-stove-top-and-inside-the-oven meal! Yes, please, high five's all round for Kellie, thankyouverymuch. 

 
Check out my two new cd's, yet two more finds at a thrift store. My Disney-lovin' heart has been satiated today with the soundtrack for The Hunchback of Notre Dame and my soft-inspirational-instrumental-lovin' soul is happy with Chris Rice's The Living Room Sessions.
 

For lunch this afternoon, not only did I actually eat my leftover teriyaki chicken and rice...but I added steamed broccoli to the ensambe. Let me say that again: I steamed broccoli. Something healthy. Something green. A veggie that actually took some {minor} preparation. Ah yes. I can just see my mother's tears of joy as she reads this.
 
*hi, mom!*

 
Well, that's my Friday night' dinner and Saturday's lunch for you! I'm going to try my absolute hardest to NOT post about the food that I eat tomorrow...but I'm making no promises.
 
Alright, I'm off to curl up with a bowl of ice-cream* and a movie. Just because it's Saturday and I can.
 
Have a fabulous Saturday, you wonderful readers, you!
And I really mean that.

  1. Well I happen to LOVE food. It was one of God's best ideas! ;)

    1. Thanks, Brea! I've really been working on getting my lighting better and trying to get that "white glow" in the pictures! My little home is actually blessed with some really good natural lighitng spots (ie. my room for the mornings, dining room & portions of the living room in the afternoon/evening) so I've been trying to really utilize that potential as much as possible!

  3. Wait...we're supposed to do things besides eat and watch geeky shows/romantic comedies? Gosh, you learn something new every day! ;-)

    I love Chris Rice! I was super sad when I thought he stopped recording, but he just went adult contemporary instead of straight Christian, his music is as good as ever though!

    1. Haha, KatySue, you crack me up! I think my dream work consists of food and movies all day long. ;)

      I've not listened to much Chris Rice, other than the usual top hits I hear (and of course, a few of those deliciously sappy ones!), but I LOVE hsi instrumental hymns cd, which is the one pictured above.

  8. Generally I like to cook. It's not a "passion" of mine but I don't mind it. Sometimes I am more excited about it than others though it's always exciting to try a new recipe. :)

    Sounds like you had a great dinner date, Kellie!

    1. When it comes down to baking vs. cooking, I have to say I like cooking better of the two! There's something more exciting about cooking with meats, sauces and spices than flour, sugar and baking powder! :)

    2. Oh, yes! My mother is BIG on using all kinds of herbs, spices and such in cooking. I am too however where she uses them more in excess, I go for the "less is more" mentality. :)

    3. Hehe! I like a strong flavor, but not at the cost of lots of little green herby things being all over my food! :D
