Isn't It Time for Lunch?

I am craving a three-cheese Grilled Cheese sandwich with a dill pickle and a cold draft beer. And no pregnant jokes 'cause it ain't so.

And now for something completely different

I confess to having never made home made whipped cream, until tonight.

I was craving a chocolate cake with cream, just like Flaca makes. So, I bought the whipping cream, added the vanilla and sugar, and voile!

Sweet chocolate perfection.

Carbohydrates are my friend

Mmmmmm, loaded potatoes. Now, I love rib-eye or prime rib as much as the next person, but you just can't beat a gigantic Idaho twice-baked or skinned potato.

Dinner was delicious. Thank you, R.

For this reason, one of the favorite additions to our Christmas tables is a kind of punch better known as clericó, and loads of seasonal fruits.

Like Water for....

Chocolate...I am dying for chocolate, but as A once said when she was a wee little thing, "Mom, you only buy ingredients."

Sigh...I don't want to make anything, just consume.

Mmmmmm, I love veggie pizza

Mmmmmm, I love veggie pizza and a cold diet coke and crisp Romaine lettuce.

And guacamole with chips.

And fresh, hot, homemade cinnamon rolls with coffee and cream.

I love lying around reading 100 pages of a good book; napping at will; sitting outside with R and watching the girls ride their bikes; curling up and watching a movie together; night time snuggle talks with my babies.

I love do nothing days, and today was finally a do nothing day.

What's for dinner at your house?

Mmmmm, homemade pizza, a big salad, and a beer (no ale for the children, of course).

What are you having tonight?
