Lately... {5.9.12}

...I've been loving this cookbook.  Current favorite.  It's one of those I checked out from the library and then immediately ordered from Amazon. hold on this book finally came through at the library.  I need to finish it and two that follow before the other two movies come out.  My son read them when they first came out.  I wish I'd followed suit sooner.

...the whole family saw this movie over opening weekend.  Loved it - it was so fun!  Finally a good Hulk.

...I bawled my eyes out while my heart broke for Channing Tatum's character in this movie.  And why is Rachel McAdams so stinking cute?

...I'm eating avocado fries dipped in anything I can get my hands on.  Yup. Still using and enjoying this cookbook.

  1. Just ordered that cookbook - looking forward to it. Still on hold for The Hunger Games ebook, and I work in a library...

  2. Wait! Did you steal my cat and snap a photo of him? Fun learning more about the woman behind the delicious food.

  3. Do we have twin kitties!? LOL. That's my Moses.

  4. Ha! Do you have to wait for everybody else to be done reading before you are allowed to bring something home? =(

  5.'ve got to share the recipes as you try them from that Back In The Day Bakery cookbook!! I'm already on a search for it at the library!! <3

    So nice to get to know you a little better, I knew you were superwoman...just didn't know it was your job title! So how many cookbooks do you have? Where to you keep them? Do you ever get rid of any? Just curious!:)

    Interesting post, thanks for sharing. I have to have it! :)

  8. Your avocado fries look amazing, I had bookmarked those in the book. Now I need to make them. My newest obsession is Minute Maid Light Lemonade. I'll have to look for the mango, sounds so good.

  9. Okay, it's getting dangerous visiting you! Every time I come here I end up buying another cookbook - my Amazon habit is getting so much worse :-) You have a great eye for them though - every one I've bought on your recommendation is one that I actually use. They never just sit on the shelf! So I'm thanking you, although my cookbook budget is not :-) Actually I'm not sure we even have a cookbook budget.... I enjoyed reading 'a little more about you' too!

  10. yes, I hear ya. Cookbook budget. What's that!? ;) Thanks so much. This one is really a keeper.

  11. Honestly, I'm not sure. Aside from several bookshelves, I have numerous plastic tubs lining the basement with "older" ones. One of these days I'll get them all out and organize and count them. Not sure which day that will be, but... I rarely get rid of a cookbook. I mean, the minute I do, I'll surely need it!

  12. Avocado THAT was is missing in my life!

  13. Avocado Fries? Can you make me one order without any calories? PRONTO!!!!

    It is dangerous visiting you! I need another cookbook like a hole in the head, I want avocado fries, and I'm still just smiling after reading this post. Now I can sleep well.

  15. That is a fun game. I might have to get in on that! I hate cleaning toilets too. By far the worst job.

  16. I caught the Day's on Martha and they were so sweet!! Love the Hunger Games book they rock! OMG that's exactly what I told hubby "finally a good hulk, LOL!" Oh don;t even get me started on the vow, swoon! Lately, unpacking,unpacking,unpacking hate it!!

  17. Ha! Do you have to wait for everybody else to be done reading before you are allowed to bring something home? =(
