Cooking Time!

I have been inspired! I finally bought The Tex-Mex Cookbook by Robb Walsh!

Let me tell you it's amazing! All the recipes sound simply delicious! I'm making Chile Rellenos first tomorrow night. I'm crossing my fingers they are as amazing as they sound.

I also bought Robin Millers Quick Fix Meals - She is a host on Food Network that will make one thing during the weekend and her family can vary from that one thing the rest of the week. I'm hoping that with all this working I've been doing I can cook big on Saturday and not have to do much during the week when I'm dead tired and pooped.

I'm also going to try my hand at a recipe I found online for Outback Steakhouse's Honey Wheat bread. It contains instant coffee and cocoa powder so I'm not holding my breath but we'll see....

I have not forgotten about this blog! I swear it! Between working five days a week now, the fire department having an arsonist on the loose and tornado watching (I set off the tornado siren for the town!!) I haven't had time for anything really.

I did however, set up a small vegetable garden this weekend. I bought a bell pepper plant, strawberries, and jalapenos. I'll also be getting okra and big jim peppers for chile rellenos. Yummy!

Pics to come soon! I do have some great baseball, softball, and fire shots up on the flickr. Link to the side or click here

Zaza Gallery - Photo on Canvas

So I joined Twitter. You know, the social networking place where you "tweet" what you are doing to no one and everyone at the same time (that's from a hilarious parody video, btw). Haha, anyways it was there that I ran into ZAZA gallery. I found out that Hughe puts your photos onto canvas! His prices are really the best I've researched out ($25 for an 8X10!). Today was the day I recieved mine and I couldn't rip that box open fast enough. I literally gasped when I saw my canvas. I think the colors are 10X more vibrant than in my original photo!

I'm so impressed! I wish everyone could see it in person, my pictures are really not doing it any justice. I'll definitely, definitely, be ordering other photos for gifts and such. These are just too great to pass up! I can see a wall full of flowers on canvas now... Thanks Zaza Gallery!
