Foodie Blogroll

Yippeeeee!!!  Not too long ago, I applied to be a part of the Foodie Blogroll.  This is an online community for people who have a food blog.  It is one of the many website I often go to in order to search for some new recipe inspiration!  I wasn't sure I would meet the criteria based on the fact that I have had this blog for so long, and it has only been a food blog for a short time. of last night, I have officially been accepted!  It is an awesome website FULL of some really amazing blogs, I'm super excited to be a part of it!

Right now I am on a meal planning hiatus due to the fact that I had family over the past week.  We mostly went out to eat, but over the weekend I cooked for 13 people...that is a personal record for me!  Pasta, garlic bread, and salad...the easiest thing I could think of for such a large group!  We were a little smooshed in our apartment, but we made it work and everyone seemed to have enjoyed it!!!  This is a blurry picture of one satisfied looking bunch of people....I promise!
I was originally planning on making the zucchini risotto for my parents on Monday night, but I forgot to take the chicken out of the freezer, and it was a little late when we got home.  We ended up having....left over pasta (shocking)!  Apparently 3 lbs. of penne is WAY too much for 13 people...lesson learned!  I'm looking forward to getting back into "meal planning mode", and also getting back to a normal routine now that summer vacation is over (sad face), family visits are over for now (more sad faces), and I have to burn off all these excess calories I have consumed over the past week!!!  Tonight I made egg salad for dinner in order to use up all of the eggs from the giant breakfast that I never had a chance to make while everyone was in town!
