mmmm .... FOOD!
so most of you know that i am all about food. i mean really. some people have hobbies like golf, sewing, scrapbooking, blogging - mine is FOOD. and the preperation and cooking of it. i LOVE going to the markets and seeing all the veggies and fruit stacked on and on; the mushrooms, the zuchini, the little brussel sprouts, the fingerling potatoes -omg, aren't they just adorable? just being in a whole foods market almost sends me into a tizzey! you have no idea how much i miss grocery shopping....ugg!
i digress. so anyway, i've decided to occasionally post some of the dishes i've made in addition to the madness and nonsense that's in my head. ha!
so tonight, inspired by one of my fav blogs "closet cooking", i made a dish for dinner, and took some pic's of it, though nowhere near as nice as kevin's (closet cooking).
tonight i made a, hmm... i don't have a fancy name for it. ok, i made chicken breasts stuffed with honey ham (frome whole foods - yum!), gorgonzola cheese and apples and pears in a creamy marsala sauce along with a brown rice pilaf and sweet corn. - YEEEUUUMMMMEEEE!!!!
again, i still haven't figured out how to make my pictures look good and have captions and what not. still working on that...sorry. but can you see the cheese ooozing out? and the sweet ham? uuhh, the apples! i was half way through the meal when i realized that i had forgotten to put the sauce on the chicken! lol!! didn't matter, i still poured it all over what was left and finished it up. mmm! again, i didn't focus on the presentation becuase 1. we all weren't sitting down to dinner together tonight, juan was at the gym, then came home and whisked ladybug off to her bath that i had started , so he ate after he put her to bed 2. i didn't get this idea about posting an occassional meal 'til i sat down to eat myself.
i usually do what i can to make dinner look nice when we sit down to eat. and again, i'm trying to mae these pic's look nice too. like why are they not lined up? and how do you put a caption at the bottom of them? i'm working on it, i'm working on it!
be well...and strong
