Fired Up
Monday, October 09, 2006
This past week, I have been really inspired by Alicat at Something So Clever. She has the most luscious photos of food on her website - known in many blogging circles as "food porn," and they always make me want to cook.

Those of you that know me can stop laughing now. Thanks for that, by the way.

So this weekend, I got it into my thick noggin that I was going to make not 1, but 4 new dishes. I actually purchased 8 lbs. of ground beef at the grocery store, much to the entertainment of the cashier. I believe her exact reaction was, "I done never seen such a tiny person buy so much meat all at one time."

Thank you, thank you, I'll be here all week.

In reality it was mortifying. But I managed to make 2 of the 4 recipes - burrito pie, and my favorite slow-cooker chili. I don't think I need to clarify that Mexican food is my favorite of all time, OF EVER. And in true fashion, the dishes that I made were really good, but didn't photograph very well.

Next up in the batting order: Sweet Potato/Onion/Almond Roast, and Amish Casserole (thanks, Alicat!).
