Today was full of good food!
And we’re all caught up on White Collar ;) I will say…Neil Caffrey is very easy on the eyes…
While working away this afternoon, I snacked on some of this cantaloupe – it was perfect for my first one of the season!
I was so happy when I was slicing this up last night. It is perfectly ripe and juicy and made the best snack today.
And then – dinner.
I was excited for this meal because of 3 words:
Have you seen this recipe yet? If not, please head over and see The Pioneer Woman and this recipe (if you don’t get sidetracked by everything else on her amazing blog).
Crispy. Creamy. Perfect.
I followed the recipe, adding a little smoked paprika on ours and some fresh parsley right before serving. We both loved them!
They’re the best things about baked potatoes and roasted potatoes, all in one dish.
We also had some roasted garlic and broccoli and the main dish:
Local flat iron steak from Shadowchase Farm (just a few miles away) along with grilled onions and peppers. Nick made his into a big cheesesteak sandwich on a Nature’s Pride bun, and he really enjoyed it!
We’ve finished eating, the dishes are done, and my lunch is packed.
I’m getting back to my new book:
I am obsessed with Ted Dekker after Nick’s dad let us borrow The Bride Collector. I bought another book of his (The Boneman’s Daughters), read that in 2 days, and bought this on Friday.
I started it right after work ended today, and I’ve got to get back to it.
They. are. addicting. Totally consuming.
And that is why I love reading.
Anyone have a job for me where I could just read all day long? I’m in and completely serious.
