This is my first time EVER doing a photo challenge but I've seen a lot of my blog friends doing it and I thought maybe I should jump in too and challenge myself on a daily basis. This week at I should be folding laundry, the them was "kitchen" in the You Capture challenge and so here's a glimpse into what went on here in my ca-razy kitchen this week :)
I am a recipe freak and I love to collect, save, try, and keep any recipe I get my hands on (if it's good of course).....this is my recipe folder.....umm....there's a reason why you don't see a section for desserts, I have a whole separate folder just for them!! They don't get lonely though, I'm always digging in it looking for something sweet to make, we all have a sweet tooth around here! :) Oh, and I'm also a recipe book hoarder as well....they're just so pretty!
For summer I love to make frozen grapes for a surprisingly yummy and refreshing snack when I'd rather be eating chocolate. It saves my rear end from getting even larger!
I LOVE grapefruit, YUM!
Here's a couple of activities we do in the kitchen all the time....I of course have to have my calendar, otherwise organization leads to complete chaos, and then we like to play the "number game"....Eli's getting really good at it! It helps pass the time while I'm making dinner so they don't maul me for food.
Sorry, for some reason I went on a vintage kick for all of these! I don't normally do that in my every day processing so I thought what the heck, have some fun!
And of course, I always have a hungry face with their hungry eyes watching my every move...saying "hurry up mom, I'm starving! "
Then, if Im really lucky I actually get to eat too! Yay!! After everything is made, children are getting fed and everyone is happy, I get to eat and my kitchen wouldn't be mine if it didn't have my trusty lemon vinagerette that I love to eat on my salads. I owe my insanely fit and gorgeous to-die-for mommy bod to this amazing stuff....and then I get to wash the dishes, yay for me!
