Dinners the last 2 nights, while yummy, have been less than blog-worthy. But in the name of mofo and being completely honest about what I eat (good or bad), here it is anyway. Tuesday Michael and I had big plans for dinner, but ended up procrastinating until it was too late to fool with. So we just made some beanie weenies. Scared Kitty Beanie Weenies!
mine's the soupy one on the left...boo.
Last night Dad was here and I was super exhausted and couldn't get up the gumption to cook, so we just drank beer and ordered pizza. Dad got a meaty cheesey pizza (which he said was good), and Michael and I got 2 of something a little different.
pineapple, onion, banana peppers
tomatoes, black olives, green peppers
You can tell which one we liked more, eh? Dad also stopped at a few farmers markets on his way here and brought us some total awesomeness! The best part? He said he only spent like $8. what!
butternut squash, pie pumpkin, delicatas, and carnivale squashes
He also got us some eggplants (wish me luck on those), tomatoes (green and red), and some asian pears. Yumm! I seriously can't wait to roast up some of those crazy squashes though. Thanks, Dad!
This is kind of a pathetic post, huh? Well, to fill it out, Sal from Alien on Toast tagged me for another meme! This one's all about my freezer. Now, my freezer is jam packed. It's not that big, though. That's probably why it looks like that. So here goes. First, my door:
In here we've got: corn, brussels sprouts, chopped spinach, a complete shitload of different colored bell peppers, yellow squash, artichokes, strawberries, and peas.
The first half of the inside:
Here we have: peaches, quinoa, cornmeal, raisins, blackberries, phyllo dough, more peppers, more squash, more brussels sprouts, more peas (!), boca burgers, twizzlers (that are 2 feet long), and some 'meat'balls.
Some of that stuff is in the first pic, so I'll only mention the new stuff: tots, 2 kinds of Rice Dream (vanilla gingersnap and vanilla swiss almond), chickn strips, ice, semi-sweet pastilles, and a pie crust.
We just went grocery shopping before these photos. All the peppers, peaches, blackberries, and squash are from the farmers market this summer. And there's also half a banana and a tub of some stew from months and months ago that you can't see in there. I know a bunch of people have already done this and can't remember who right now (I'm hurrying a bit because It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is about to come on!), so if you have not done this meme and wanna, do it and then I'll come over and comment about how awesome your freezer is.
Right now there is a big pot of some yummy soup on the stove, so get ready for a recipe tomorrow!
