A Little Bit Obsessed....
Okay, here's the thing - I'm going to invite you into my crazy little world tonight. I want to explain to you how my mind works. I will warn you, it's a wacky place, never stagnant, and usually concentrated on one thing: food. The other night my in-laws were watching our kids. When we called [around 5:00 pm] to see if they were interested in pizza for dinner, guess what their response was? They said, "oh, we haven't even thought about dinner yet". I'm sorry, that's crazy talk. Seriously. Sometimes I wish I could be a little more like that, but really, I'm about as much a polar opposite from that position as I could be. I literally start thinking about food first thing in the morning and the trend continues through the day. I read on the Pioneer Woman this week that she finishes one meal and immediately starts thinking about the next one (not surprisingly, this was extremely vindicating).
Speaking of the Pioneer Woman: did you see her post on Caramelized Onion Pizza? Well, I read it around 4:45, and I was on a mission. The caramelized onions sparked a frenzy strong enough to send me into my kitchen to satisfy my need (!) for onions. Last fall I posted this recipe. Fortunately, I had all of the ingredients I needed. It was no caramelized onion pizza, but it was darn good. We also had this chicken, with baked potatoes and steamed peas.
In decidedly less embarrassing news, is this the cutest thing or what?
