Let me first say this, I have never been much for cooking. I can follow a recipe, but it's not something I really enjoy. Eating is a necessity, I love to eat good food, I just like it better when somebody else makes it! Anyways, I got brave today and tried cooking some new and nutritious items! Yes, I was feeling brave!
The first new thing I tried was using a rice cooker. We got one from our wedding and it has sat in the garage for the last 8 1/2 years collecting dust. Tonight was the first time I ever opened the box! I made some tasty brown rice in that thinga-ma-jigga! It was even easy! Just takes longer....I'll definitely do it again!
The next one will come as a big shock to any of you who know me....I actually bought AND made asparagus! AND I ate it and LIKED it!!!!! Yes everyone, get out your sleds and snowboards, Hell has frozen over!
This was such a big event in my life. Last year I cooked the Thanksgiving turkey, and now I'm cooking new and healthy foods on a regular basis. Dottie and my mommy will be so proud of me!
You know you're a photographer when you have thousands of pictures, and you're NOT in ANY of them!
McGyver meets the Nutty Professor!
This is my man, my main squeeze. He can make a marble shooter out of a weed whacker engine!
My baby's in 1st grade already! And luckily he loves it! He likes recess and math the best. He even likes hot lunch and has shocked us all by actually EATING his lunch! This smart cookie likes Bionicles, Magnetix and Transformers. This kid makes us laugh, and he is a great big brother
This adorable child keeps us on our toes. He loves Transformers, and playing with his big brother and his friends. He's quick to smile and laugh, and he always tells you what he is thinking. He is a good helper and an all around jolley guy to hang out with
Our pyscho cat. We are seriously looking into Kitty Prozac for her!
Yep, this is our lazy lion wannabe! He only weighs 17lbs!
Here's our rats, Tiger and Jr. They are snuggly, and for some reason, they always pee on me, (but nobody else!)
Corneata and Zack
We tried raising chickens this year, and I was surprised at how social and fun to watch they are. I loved the way they walk! Our poor chickens met with disaster though, the nieghbors dogs ate them. I guess having a fence, or even a proper chicken coop is neccessary. Who knew?
