My Mojo is GONE

This was the worst weekend of cooking for me ever!! On Friday, I made lasagna. BUT, I went against my instincts and used jarred spaghetti sauce - UGH. I have a very small kitchen right now, and got lazy. Because of this, my lasagna was so salty. On top of that, my oven was cooking super hot, so it was also dry. What a waste of ingredients. I was gonna say it was a waste of time, but I learned I need to trust my gut - and test my oven!!

Saturday it was all about Mac & Cheese. I do not know what happened. It was just awful. I cannot even explain how bad it was.

So, no pictures from the weekend. Believe me, you do not want to see them.

A New Favorite?

Look at this deliciousness I found from Kraft!! I cannot wait to make these. Maybe I will have to find myself invited to a dinner party soon and offer to bring the appetizers.

What a great vacation! I had 10 days with my guys and even got to take Justice back with me to KC. Unfortunately, I did not take any pictures. :-(

I had a "True Blood" Season 2 marathon and am super excited for Season 3!! It was fun hanging with Amanda. I also got to have lunch with Nikki & Amanda at Fricker's. You know I love the wings there.

Here's hoping that the house will sell and we will be living together soon. Being home was a blessing, but a curse. It made me realize what I am missing. If the house does not sell by the end of the year, I will be taking a close look at my job. Is it really worth it? I love what I do, but it has not been as fulfilling as I wanted.

I'm Back

Yep, it has been awhile since I posted. It is strange living alone and having no one to cook for. However, I was home for a week and did a lot of cooking!! Unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures.
