AAAAHHHH Loving right now. As I type at my kitchen table that my Granddaddy built for me, all I have to do to see what I am lovin right now is look towards my right into my kitchen.
I bought a new skillet the other day. I am one gal who can flat wear out a skillet in a matter of months. Mom says it may be because of cooking at too high a temperature :) or maybe it's just because I use them every single morning and clean them afterwards. I have always had Teflon skillets and I'm pretty sure we digested some Teflon before I got rid of my last ones! Shaun and I were in the skillet aisle at WalMart and he pointed out the ceramic ones. I read about one or two and decided to give one a whirl. So far I adore it! Nothing has stuck. I've made sausage, bacon, gravy, browned deer meat. It's actually 12 inches and I have browned sausage and fried eggs at the same time! If you are in the market for a new skillet yourself, I absolutely urge you to give a ceramic one a try.
Ah my rye bread, seeded. I love caraway seeds and actually am going to grow some on the herb wall this summer. When I bake my own bread using caraway it transforms the smell and feel of my home in a beautiful way. I really like having Pepperidge Farms Jewish Rye on hand too. I like it plain (and by plain I mean I stand at the counter and eat a piece with nothing on it!) or toasted with lettuces and tuna salad or toasted and used for sopping up tomato sauce.
I am utterly hooked on avocados right now. Just plain old, peeled and sliced avocado. And they are so good for you too. I made a black bean soup last Monday and had diced avocado on the side. YUM!
True story.... Saturday morning I did about 40 minutes worth of yoga and then felt the urge to take it to the treadmill in the basement for a gentle walk. Between practices and during my walk all I could think about were these chips. Devil on the left shoulder saying "Laurie.... some of those jalapeno chips would sure be good right now". the whole time. So.. what did I do as soon as my workout was over? Finished off the open bag of chips. Yeah... I'm really gonna last through the 108 day yoga program... NOT! I am too weak. Especially with a bag of these chips around. The label says that they are "HOT!" but I have a soft spot when it comes to hot and these don't rate real high on my hot rating. Addictive rating... now that's a different story!
