Today has been 9 months since Luke and I got married, and in those nine months I have taken up the art of cooking. Before we got married I didn't really like cooking. Maybe this was because I never had my own kitchen or nice utensils, but now I have both and I LOVE cooking.
At one of our wedding showers my grandma gave me a recipe book filled with some of my favorite recipes that she prepared for me while growing up. I use it all the time!
After I got good at those recipes and became a little more confidant in my cooking abilities, I started seeking out new recipes online and trying out new dishes.
One thing I love about blogging is all of the great recipe blogs, and I love when blog friends share their favorite recipes.
I found myself using recipe blogs so much, that I went and bought a notebook so I could print out all the recipes and keep them in my very own notebook. I use it all the time!
One of my most favorite recipe blogs is of course Mimi's Making Meals.
Tonight I tried her Stuffed Pepper Soup. Can you say AMAZING??
It was SO amazing and SO easy to make! We gobbled it right up!
Here I am preparing the soup. This is what I look like at 7:00 at night, I have not applied makeup since 6 in the morning and I put sweats on as soon as I get home from work. Please excuse my look.Luke loved it! Here he is at our kitchen table. There is no room in our apartment for a table so we eat all of our meals on the couch. Tonight was the perfect night for this soup, it is cold and rainy here. We are supposed to get a wintery mix of snow and ice tomorrow.
The university that I work at even cancelled classes tomorrow afternoon! How crazy is that?!!? Nothing has even happened yet, and they already cancelled I thought it was kinda weird.
But I have the afternoon off, so I am fine with it! I plan on going shopping and using gift cards that I got for my birthday!
Forever 21 here I come!!!
Yay for a snow day in March!!
