My first Amigurumi crochet project...very rough draft...this was a bit harder than I thought!!! Another cake job under my belt. I thought this was a fun and cute cake for a 13 year old Birthday!! I joined Aspen to start working out, so far so good. Oh and Blogger is really starting to annoy me with all this layout mishaps... why won't my pics go to the center!! Too tired tonight to try to fix it.

Hello Comfort Food

This morning I started my day off right with a 3 shot Americano (3 espresso shots, hot water, splash of milk, 1 splenda and splash of sugar free vanilla syrup). It was great...and I didn't even need any coffee at work.

Last night I prepped my Real Simple Chicken Pot Pie and did everything except add my pie crust top. When I got home tonight from work, put on the crust and popped it in the oven. The result...delish!! And other than the crust I think it was pretty healthy. I used skim milk, veggies and boiled chicken breast. If you look at the recipe, I did change a few things. Instead of dry white wine I used chicken broth and changed the veggies a bit. I served it with flakey buscuits...ahhh so good. Perfect for tonights chilly weather.

Here are my "grown up" plate. I packed up my old chipped college plates and put my new beautiful plates on the shelf. These are the large dinner plate, I have raincheck for the smaller salad plates. I got 12 plates and 8 more green ramekins from World Market for $21!! Rediculous!!! That was with my 25% off coupon but still, $19.99 is the normal price, you can't beat that. The 12 salads plates are only $16.99. They are so simple, perfect for me.

Oh and FYI

As you can see in my last post I have issues with spacing and format (all the time) in Blogger so I have a Wordpress site I am working on getting going for the new year. I know thats a few months away. But I can't fix the spacing in my last me I have tried about 5 times. And it DRIVES ME CRAZY, call it OCD, call it control issues, whatever it is...drives me nuts! So come January...Hello Wordpress!!!
