I feel like I've been lacking in the recipe posts lately. I'd love to try to make at least one new thing each week. The cookbooks I checked out at the library are slightly overwhelming, since we don't always stock fresh herbs or buy fancy cheeses.

I think I've just been too busy with our "staple" meals, which are super easy, require no recipe directions, and always turn out delicious.

Here's what we usually eat: spaghetti, pancakes and eggs, grilled cheese and soup, fried rice and pot stickers, and bean burritos with homemade salsa (plus all the fix-ins)...

I guess they're not the healthiest of meals, but I'm trying to get better at eating more of the veggies than the main course.

Now pass me those chips...
Listening to: this song by Cookie Monster. Seriously, listen to the lyrics. It's so cute and Cookie Monster singing it is THE BEST.
Decided: to try painting. I need to hang some art in my house, and unfortunately for my house, this is the cheapest way to go.
Absolutely delighted: that this inexpensive pizza oven alternative exists. I don't have to wait for William to build me an actual brick oven. Now to find me the perfect pizza dough recipe...
Cracking up: at this face and hair--

Love my girl.


  1. I've been wanting to paint something too...I love art but I can't afford it right now in my life. If you're into abstract art you should try this:

    I've been meaning to follow this tutorial for awhile now. (I'm just a little intimidated.) I'm excited to see your art project!

  2. So... I found your blog thru Mandyface and I love it... your little girl is adorable! Can you tell me how you make the potstickers? I'm looking for a good chicken potsticker recipe and there arent' many online. Aaaand if you can tell me, can you email me? I might miss it if it's just on this comment thread :-) I WILL be following though, I love AZ too :-D pagetraveler[at]gmail[dot]com
