It's cold. And I'm sick of the cold. I'm ready for spring.

Just a quick check in. Getting excited about restaurant week at the end of the month! Stay tuned for that!

Zucchini Fritters

Hello again. I can't believe I've got another post up so soon! I love the Blogger app on my phone!

Just wanted to share a recipe I made this evening for dinner. I wasn't overly hungry and decided to make something easy.

I grabbed my cookbook, called Vegetarian, by Metro Books. 

It has some awesome vegan and vegetarian recipes in it. I decided to make some zucchini fritters.

I did play around with the recipe a bit and I baked them instead of frying. I also didn't make the jam. They turned out awesome!! And they were so awesome that I forgot to take a pic. Dang it! It's a tried and liked recipe so I've got it marked to make for Stephen. 

Anyway, it's been super busy at work. The holidays are upon us and people are piling into the grocery store to hunker down on their staples. I'm actually ready for it to be over so it can go back to business as usual.

Have a great week!

Thanksgiving Vacation

I've been on vacation since Sunday, November 29 and it's been wonderful. I spent Thanksgiving day with my family in GB and then headed to OKC on Saturday night to spend my week of vacation with Stephen.

I have been cooking for him all week and taking his lunches to him at work. I baked about 7 dozen cookies for him and the workers at the base. I've done some cleaning and lots of relaxing.

Tomorrow is our Thanksgiving meal. We are having turkey breast, mashed potatoes, roasted vegetables and deviled eggs. Stephen will have lots of good leftovers for next week at work.

I'm kind of bummed because my schedule will be super hectic once I get back due to the holiday. It was soooo busy and chaotic before the Thanksgiving holiday.

I bought a planner to help keep my life organized. I'm a huge list maker... Lol. So the planner works great! I've loved putting to-do's and daily notes in there. 

Anyway, I wanted to do a quick update and will try to post more when I am done with vaca. I've got two more days and it's back to work on Monday. Hope you have had a great week!

Oh my.  I can't believe how much time has passed.  It's been so long since I posted, yet not much has changed.  Isn't that weird?  I just wanted to check in and let you know I am still here.  Life is just happening and it's been a struggle to update.  I keep forgetting about the blogger app on my phone.  I guess I could be blogging daily if I just used the app!

Anyway, I scored some great cookbooks from B&N this evening.  I scoured the shelves for about an hour and decided on three.  Here they are!

Jamie Oliver's Everyday Super Food.  I love all things Jamie Oliver and absolutely loved his show on the Food Network.  He's an amazing chef and advocate for health and nutrition.  I can't wait to try some of the recipes!

I also got Vedge, by Rich Landau and Kate Jocoby.  I loved the look and feel of the cookbook.  The recipes were simple and I love pictures.  I hate getting a cookbook and there are no pictures of the food!  People eat with their eyes first.

Lastly, I also purchased Easy Vegetarian.  Again, I like the simplicity of the book and the pictures. This is the one I will probably cook out of when going to Oklahoma.  Stephen has challenged me to find more vegetarian recipes since he is wanting to move toward that healthy lifestyle.  I am on board with that!

I can't wait to start cooking!  I think I will try my first recipe this week.

Hope you are all doing well.  I can't believe Thanksgiving is next week.

Good Morning

It has been awhile since my last post. I've been pretty busy at work, travelling back and forth from OKC and just enjoying each day.

I have made it to several football games back home. I have even gone to a few away games.

This year I am trying to be more actively involved with my home town. I became a booster and have been actively supporting the football team this year.

Let's see, I have not done much blogging. I have been watching a lot of Vlogs. I have about four of them that I watch on a regular basis.

I think it would be pretty cool to have one, but I don't know when I would have the time. I barely have enough time to update my blog.

So, I will check in here from time to time. But I can't guarantee that I will be up to date on my reading.

Hope you all have a great weekend!
