If you got eyes look at me now

A few interesting things have happened lately and by interesting I mean just mildly interesting and probably only to me. As you may or may not know, as part of my new job I work at Bingo on Sundays and Thursdays. Well on Thursday, homegirl comes in and buys 11 packs to play on. Each pack has 18 faces. Thus, homegirl was playing bingo on 198 different cards. Some of the people I see are fascinating enough that Tyler and I have decided to pitch the secret life of bingo goers as a tv show to A&E and TLC.  I'll keep you updated on our progress.

Anyhow, back to my cooking. The other night I made the most delicious dinner I've ever managed. Unfortunately, it was a salad so I don't really know if I get to take credit. I got these great salad choppers from pampered chef so thankfully I can chop my Green Bean Delivery greens much easier and I can buy bunches and full heads as opposed to chopped greens. So I put together a few types of lettuce and spinach with celery, onions and tomato basil almonds, cheese stuffed spinach tortellini and sun dried tomato vinaigrette dressing. The greatest meal I've ever had! Even Tyler agreed and he is not a salad eater. I also the day before made my own potato wedges which were equally as amazing and so easy! Just slice some potatoes and then throw them in a bag with EVOO (thank you Rachael Ray) and some seasonings, shake it up and bake for 30 min turning once halfway through. It's been fun so far to be able to just try things out and cook. It also gives me something else to look forward to when I get home which makes me love home even more. Speaking of home, I'm looking into buying this one. Eek! I'm not old enough yet!
