Why I don't lose weight

I love to cook. I love to eat. End of story. Here are a few of my recent dishes - I've been in a gourmet mood lately and the husband is loving it. He does think I'm certifiable, though, for taking pictures of my food. Who needs those stinking expensive restaurants!














This is stuffed pork loin in a red wine demiglace. MMMM, it was muy tasty!














These are crab cakes in a vodka tomato cream sauce accompanied by a small tenderloin steak and baked golden potato with chives, bacon and sour cream. Yeah, no calories in this dish.















This is a Crazydogmama fav - Penne pasta with chicken in a gorgonzola cream sauce topped with diced hazelnuts and parsely.















Alcoholic dessert anyone? This is a german red spiced wine - very cheap, but a 10 on the yum-yum scale. Just heat on the stove and serve with a cinnamon stick.


The wine in a pretty cup.

OK, enough with the white shit already....















I am looking painfully out of my work window at the big-ass snowflakes falling on the already frozen snow. It is not that bad here (yet), but we still have a good 6 to 8 inches where I live and I can just imagine how my commute home is going to go. *Sigh*

Gonna get just a few inches MY ASS!

Yeah, we got like a little over a FOOT of snow. It is 11pm and I just got home from WORK. Blah. The snow is fun now that I can torture the dogs in it, but driving in it, SUCKS ASS. Check out my flickr account for more cute dogs-in-the-snow.

A Post about the Kid

We had quite the little scare with the teenager a couple of days before Christmas. My step son decided that jumping onto a moving car would be a hoot. Not so much. His friends and him were goofing around and he jumped onto the trunk of his buddie's car, just as it was about to be gunned forward. My step son smacked his head on the pavement (literally). He actually cracked his skull and was bleeding out of his eardrum. His friends rushed him to the hospital, and my husband and I were the ones his friends decided to notify first. We flew out of the house and when we got there, they had him in a neck brace. Talk about having a panic attack...

It turned out that the neck brace was just a precaution, but they did do Xrays and later an MRI and a CTI Scan. They said he would be fine, but then the next day he started developing this weird face-thing. His eyes did not blink at the same time, and his smile was crooked. Face paralysis. GREAT. After seeing a specialist, they told us he got really lucky. He will be fine. Thank God. There was a funny part - he was wearing a T-shirt that said "I do my own stunts" the day of the accident. It was a little comical seeing it all bloodstained in the hospital.

Here is a picture of the delinquents - Bill (my step son) is the one in the back in white. They are all in drama club together.
