I was going to post my new Santa picture and realized I haven't posted anything since my last Santa picture...Nothing for an entire YEAR! (no wonder Aunt Ellen requested an update) why is that?... I am blaming facebook... and by extension, Sheriece and AD (love you both!).
I love reading and following other people's blogs. I start each morning by hitting a few of my favorites. It's the new coffee. I always come away inspired to make something or do something or BE something. While I am lacking in the usual creative, interesting traits required to be a great blogger, I would still love to be a blogger, if only for my own sake.
So, I am committing to blogging on a more regular basis. Therefore I am going to save my new Santa picture and do a 12 days of Christmas thing with all the pictures to date. Fun?... Sounds fun to me, I do love my Santa pictures.
So for tonight I am just gonna blog about....what I had for dinner! Although I am not looking to start a cooking blog. Mainly because I don't cook. Think I will use "What's for Dinner?" as default/filler posts... Tonight Shane made a scrumptious stew for another of our favorite blogs, Kalyn's Kitchen. She has a great cafe Rio recipe!...although I have nothing to compare it to. Never been to the real deal, but I hear great things about it! (btw, Sheriece, AD, that meal makes up for the facebook thing!) Anyway, Kalyn's pictures are much more appetizing than mine. I'll work on that...
Crockpot Recipe for Sausage, Peppers, and Cannellini Bean Stew
It is a South Beach recipe that I LOVE! Italian turkey sausage, YUM!. (Thanks, Shane! )We do the South Beach / low carb thing on occasion with much success and I am currently in need of some of that success. Holding out until after Christmas and then we will go back to phase one. Maybe this will be the year I finally shed all this baby weight I have been carrying around for twelve years now in varying degrees... Tonight though, I had my soup with saltines!
Oh, and here is a quick picture of Spencer. This is his early morning face. Somehow he looks sweeter in the mornings...maybe it's the bed head, a sign of a great night's sleep.
