Tasty fixings

DSCF4596 Not too long ago I shared with you about my oldest daughter Amber and her cooking. She made turkey burgers the other night when she accidentally dropped the French fries. (No, I didn’t giggle again!) Last night she made chicken lasagna, which is for dinner tonight and I can’t wait to taste it. Amber had some for her breakfast/lunch today and she said it was tasty!

100_2805 I’m so proud of her skills in the kitchen and with her in general. She just left here about 30 minutes ago on the way to take a test in her summer course. Calculus, I think. That girl is smart, I tell you. Now that she’s almost 19, I can’t take complete credit for how wonderful she is. Although I think I’ve taught her a lot and have been there every single step of the way, she has grown into an independent, strong, mature, skilled,  beautiful, intelligent young woman who is going to do great things with her life and for others.

Funny how this post, which is supposed to be about food, got me to thinking about how proud and in love I am with my baby. Yup, I still call her that.

DSCF4590 Last week Amber made crepes for the first time… Neither of us had ever had them. They were very good. It wasn’t our favorite dessert because we’re not fans of the actual crepe, but from what I know it was absolutely perfect. Filled with tasty apple filling, spiked with whipped topping and sprinkled with cinnamon. I thought you’d like to see a shot of that.

I don’t think I’ve fixed anything special lately. Well, I did make a tasty tuna sandwich for lunch. Does that count? What tasty dishes have you had lately?



  1. Oh, sure ... on the day we're having a late dinner, you're posting pictures of food! LOL

    We're having meatballs (from the freezer to the slow cooker) and pasta tonight. But tomorrow I plan to make Superchicken (Buffalo-style chicken cutlets) and buttermilk-banana bread. After I work out, of course. :)

  2. Oh but you can take credit, you certainly can. Chicken lasagna sounds good, and Melissa's buttermilk banana bread. See, this is why I always have to be the last one to order in a restaurant. The power of suggestion where food is concerned is a force indeed for me!

  3. You have so many reasons to be proud of Amber! Cooking is a real life-skill, and looks like she does a GREAT job in the kitchen. You did a good job raising her, that's for sure! :-)

  4. Petula! How dare you and your daughter tease me with a wonderful looking Chicken Lasagna, when you know that Lasagna is my favorite dish. *sigh* I cannot wait til lunch tomorrow and order the same meal from Olive Garden.

    Your daughter appears to have learned well and become an extension of her mother. Good deal.

  5. That looks delicious.

    Oh check my blog in 30 minutes. I'll have a book giveaway posted.

  6. What a great job you've done, mom! You are truly blessed.

    Although my 18-year-old baby girl (and yup, I still call her that as well!) cannot yet count culinary skills among her talents, each of our children has wonderful gifts worth celebrating, don't they?

    Good luck to your daughter on her Calculus test!

  7. Thanks for the lovely comments over at Moth Design. If you did live down the street I'd have tea waiting! xo Erica

  8. MMM that lasagna looks so good! I know my daughter will want to cook dinner when she's a bit older too, I can't wait! Your daughter looks beautiful, how proud you must be of her!

  9. Your daughter is beautiful! And that food looks SO GOOD!!!

    I am having a Pampered Chef party this morning and the representative is preparing some odd (by the ingredients) looking pizza. Hopefully it will be delicious.

    Have a wonderful day!


What's up men & women of my world! I am all a-giggle that you decided to comment. You're what make this world go 'round... ya know? This "world." I love you! Smooches. :-)
