Far to the West.

You know how, there is just that one day where you feel like sitting outside and just let the world/time pass you by? Yeah? Well that's how i feel, on this warm, yet breezy, Thursday evening. The sun is far to west that it sits right behind the tree that i sit in front of. I sit in the shade of my neighbors tree, trying to hide from the harmful rays of this hot yellow beast. The trees sway from side to side, as the wind blows, making the leaves show there pale green bottoms. Birds swooping low beside me, one bird in particular that keeps landing on the same spot for worms. The thought of ants crawling up my shirt and down my pants, in my socks and on my skin; gives me the shivers. The sight of those invisible flies, that you can only see in the sun. Grass that gets lit from a deep green, to a 'Hello Sunshine' green. The sound of the wind when it brushes against my ears, the chimes ringing from across the street, children laughter from behind the big house, and the sound of birds chirping there songs of the day. Sounds like a perfect day for blogging and relaxing.

BLT Sunday

"Bacon WHAT? Lettuce WHAT? Tomatoes WHAT?" That's all I Heard as I was making BLT's for my family. Although the title of this blog is, 'BLT Sunday', I am blogging on a Monday. Well, I don't really know what to talk (write) about. Maybe . . . how good they were. Oh My Gosh! Delicious. A triple decker, no cheese, egg whites, onions cut thinly, mayo, lettuce (the greenest ones are the best,to me.) & Perfection! My Sunday was pretty hectic after the BLT. Walmart, Walgreens and the whole 9. lolol Blogging can be challenging when there is absolutely nothing to talk about. So I will just leave now,and maybe something will pop into my mind later.

A Snap of Expression . . .

Besides cooking, I love . . . LOVE photography. If I see something 'Epic' I will be taking a photo of it. If I want to have a memory locked into my computer hard drive, my camera will capture it. Photography, to me, is like my way of expressing my self; but by using no words, just color and objects. Things that maybe, you would find boring, I find interesting. Like a rock with a worm sitting atop. I would place it in the grass and snap at least 2-5 pictures. Up until I'm satisfied.

Battle of the Pizza !

So, my dad *thinks* he can beat me at a pizza 'Throw-Down'. Psh! Its on. Ever since I've gotten more serious about cooking its been a battle between us both. From mac & cheese, to pizza, to homemade bread. That's right, bread. I've made Ciabatta bread about 2 times, going for my third time. Each time I make it, the bread comes out better. Ciabatta bread, to me, is so tasty. I love the way the yeast makes the dough smell; the scent of beer, which brings back memories of my grandpa. I'm planning on making a Buffalo Chicken Pizza with a type of spinach 'pesto' instead of sauce, & knowing my dad it might be a veggie pizza. :) What fun. These battles me and my dad have, yes I will admit it, makes me a better chef; but at the same times gives me the feeling like we are on a Food Network TV show.

Pizza Time !
