My New Favorite Pic

One of the benefits of being a crazy weirdo who keeps the camera in the kitchen at all times is being able to capture moments like this:

This is now my absolute new favorite picture.  I was mixing some corn bread mix for lunch, handed Ina a measuring cup, and my heart melted when she smiled.  

Oh Ina, there aren't many things I want to force upon you, but I sure hope you share my love for cooking.  Or at least love to hang out in the kitchen when I cook, so we can spend some quality time together.  

The cornbread was a side for the chicken chili that I took out of the freezer a few days ago.

I feel like I was missing out on the biggest secret in the world not knowing that things like chili could be frozen until you want to eat them.  

I think I need a bigger freezer.

Breakfast - overnight oats with walnuts, blueberries, and a little strawberry jam.

Dinner was slow cooker balsmic beef (following *this recipe*with baked potatoes

and Blue Bell for dessert.  

It looks like someone needs to go to the store, because my pictures are missing the color green.

G (my mom's name for grandma) came over for a little visit and held Ina during dinner.

It was so nice to have her sitting at the table with us.  Something else that is nice?  I put Ina to bed in her crib at 9 PM.  I woke up in a panic at 5:45 AM thinking someone must have stole my baby, but when I went to check on her she was sleeping soundly.  I don't want to jinx it, but it seems the transition from our room to the crib is going smoothly.  

Yesterday was a rest day, and boy did I need it after Wednesday's JM video.

Thought for the day


  1. Serious cuteness overload! She is absolutely adorable. :)

  2. She's getting so big! I didn't think of freezing chili either. Is it best to freeze it in a plastic baggie or a tupperware?

  3. Ina is such a doll. There is something about her smile. But I think I figured it out - she smiles all the time in photos like you do! Have a fabulous weekend, Racheal! Cheers to you.

  4. Ina is SO cute! Freezing chili and soup is wonderful. Especially because I can eat it all year, and my husband refuses to eat things like that in the summer. So I can make it when he isn't home and freeze portions to last me a while.
