dinner, dessert and a growing pup

apple crisp.
j had said he really wanted one but i was nervous to make it because i’m terrified of knives.
always have, always will be. my nana can peel a piece of fruit and slice it right into her mouth and i just sit there in awe knowing i could never do something like that! but after a good hour of peeling six medium granny smith apples i finally had enough to cover my pan.
me mixing the apple crisp topping…ignore my messy kitchen. no matter how hard i try, it always seems to be the dumping ground for, well, absolutely everything!
ta-da! so yummy!
i got j’s approval too!

after i finished the apple crisp i got started on making taquitos for dinner.
we usually buy the frozen ones but lord only knows what’s in them and i’m a big fan of fresh things.
they were pretty easy to make too!
ta-da again!
(the glowing white blob is sour cream…the camera on my phone is terrible!)

i’m very proud of how far i’ve come in the kitchen. a couple years ago i ruined ramen noodles. is that even possible you ask?! yes. i lit the spoon on fire and burnt the noodles. needless to say, making both a dinner and dessert is a huge step!
hope you had a good weekend.
i’m not liking this daylight savings crap. i was up at 7am! way too early!

ps…here’s a picture of leo. he’s 8 months old now!

lately on instagram...
it is most certainly puppy love ❤ just be here with me. 
signed: the moon. the stars. your still-hot-cup-of-coffee. your daughter. your son. your spouse. your heart. the green grass. the wild flowers. the waters you long to swim in. the color yellow. the color blue. your favorite poem. your favorite blanket. the wind in your hair. the waves on the ocean. the mountain air. your dad. your mom. the rain. the ice-cream cone. the butter sizzling with garlic in the frying pan. the grocery clerk with the sad, kind eyes. postcards waiting to be sent. the city squirrel. the county squirrel. jupiter. the photo album. your grandma's rosary. your favorite song. ink and paper. your best friend. the money in your wallet. the fork in your hand. brushes and paint. downward facing dog. the color turquoise. the almost invisible shade of pink. god. the skyline. the earth beneath your feet. a hammock. the shade of a giant tree. this moment, right here, now. your bones. your belly laugh. your breath. your breath. your breath. (quote from pinterest) a short list of things i love: america, cocktails, red lips, my chalkboard, grilled food but most importantly long weekends spent with my loved ones. happy birthday america! thanks for giving us the day off to celebrate 🍻
