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
