So let’s just say that I sometimes get bored at work and find myself looking at Facebook, Pinterest, other people’s blogs…the list goes on. When I was reading said blogs yesterday, I found a lot of similarities between myself and these bloggers (i.e. potty mouth, mom, soon-to-be-wifey, cook, obsessed with healthy cooking, large amount of weight loss within the last few years….Ok, I was just reading MamaLaughlin; she’s pretty fun). Why shouldn’t I start a blog? I can post pictures of my food here instead of Facebook so people stop bitching! And I can talk about how I try my best (and don’t always succeed) to be a kickass mom, fiance, employee, cook, daughter, sister, and worker-outer? We all know I already love to talk! So let’s just pretend that we’re having a conversation and you’re totally interested….ok?
What’s going on in my life right now, you ask? Everything!
I’m planning a wedding:
I know it doesn’t look like much, but that is the base for a dish PattyCakes introduced me to: Chicken Paprika with Dumplings. Sounds fattening, right? WRONG! Whole wheat dumplings and zero fat sour cream lighten this recipe right up!
I got the recipe here: http://www.eatliverun.com/chicken-paprika-with-homemade-dumplings/ The above picture is from the add-sour-cream-and-flour part of the recipe. PattyCakes said it could have been thicker, so next time I will simmer this part for a bit longer, but other than that, he loved it! Score!
Tonight is steak night and it’s also Pi day! The bug (my son) and I are going to have some fun in the kitchen today! I promise there will be pictures!
Until next time,
