Can you stand those EYES?? And when he smiles.... Ahh!!
Caught in the middle of his "excited face", though it's more of a grimace here... Ha!
And one more shot, with his beloved Mai, who was lost but is now found. I love that these shots keep happening. I wonder how long this faded green blankie toy will be his constant companion. For a long time yet, I hope... :)
And this trio is snuggled at home today, waiting out the Big Storm of 2011... Joe is home from UMSL (hooray, snow days!), and we are happy to watch too many movies, eat when we feel the urge, stay in cozy clothes, and watch the white, icy, cold precipitation unfold outside out windows. We'll likely be here tomorrow, too.
Meanwhile, I have been diagnosed with gestational diabetes, (ugh), so all the things I crave making/eating on a snowy day at home are OFF LIMITS (i.e. hot cocoa, warm cookies, banana bread, cream of wheat with lots of brown sugar, bread pudding... Mm...). So we're working on switching this mindset as I transition to a better, low-carb diet. Joe, for example, whipped up some homemade chili without a recipe today--- SO good, so comforting, so filling, and perfect for this GD diet. And last night, we recreated a favorite taco salad Joe's sister Mary has made for us on multiple occasions.... And that's the recipe I'm gonna share with you today... For no other reason than I made myself jot it down as we bluffed our way through it last night, and now I won't lose it!!
(It's not very wintry... but it IS good!)
