Eggplant Fries

That's right. I said Eggplant.

As David and I did our routine grocery shopping trip we passed by these puppies and I couldn't help but be intrigued. I have NEVER had eggplant before and couln't even comprehend what it tasted like. There was something so captivating about these pretty vegetables I decided to purchase a few. 

I'm embarrassed to say that unfortunately like most of our fresh veggies, they sat forgotten, at the bottom of our fridge for a few days. 

Tonight as I rummaged for something tasty to eat, we once again became reunited and they found their way into our bellies. This is the recipe I used.

Eggplant Fries

3 baby eggplants

3/4 cup flous

2 tsp. garlic powder

1 tsp. dried oregano

1 tsp. dried parsley

1Tbls. salt

1/2 tsp pepper

olive oil 

You can find the rest of the recipe here. They were super yummmy and very easy to make.

babies on the mind.....

Am I the only one who feels like everyone and their dog is getting knocked up slash having babies right now?? Yeah, it might be just me. If you haven't noticed my uterus is craving some company. Babies have been a constant conversation topic between hubby and I for awhile now. We've both concluded that now is not the right time...but still, its sucks. I've have to keep reminding myself that David and I are in a totally and completely different stages in our lives and when the timing is right we will know...

BLAH sorry this is just turning into a venting session...

I guess in the meantime i'm off to dream about cherub-cheeked, blue eyed little Olsen offspring.

"una mujer sin joyas es como una noche sin estrellas"

Translation: "A woman with out jewels is like a night without stars" - Bumpa Stout

My bumpa used to tell me this all the time growing up. And let me tell you, it stuck! Some would say, "poor david" haha he has learned what makes this woman happy. Take a gander at my Valentines/Anniversary gift this year. I've been drooling over it and can't help but show it off. 

I should be a hand model.

For our anniversary, I had one of my coworkers paint this.

She is amazingly talented and you can view/purchase her work here
