killers and cake batter

I'm so glad that sweeps week is over and now the TV series have started again with new shows. I was getting utterly sick of reruns. And OnDemand only updates so many times a month. Damon and I have a ridiculous (or so it seems to me) amount of shows that we watch on a "regular" basis.

How I Met Your Mother
Big Bang Theory
MNF (Monday Night Football)
The Closer
NCIS (The REAL one, not the LA)
So You Think You Can Dance (I love this show for some reason, bc i can't "dance")
Hell's Kitchen
Addicted to Beauty (Oxygen)
Criminal Minds
Modern Family (New Series)
Thursday:(by far our busiest)
Grey's Anatomy
Flash Forward (New Series, kinda like lost)
Project Runway (mine)
I must say our DVR records always always. Because when we aren't watching a regular, NFL network is on or a football game. I used to hardly ever watch TV, but now it consumes my life.
I tried the Triple Chocolate Bliss cake last night. MMM its sooo chocolately and delicious. Perfect for the non-committed and even committed chocoholics.

ancho chiles and stitches

so since my last real "in depth" post about the happenings of mine and Damon's lives, many things have happened that I guess could be considered newsworthy material.

Baby cat Camille came home today from the vet. Damon picked her up this morning so I have yet to see her. She got all the typical baby cat things accomplished this last visit (spay, declaw, boosters, microchip, etc) It was very quiet around the house without her and I think the boys missed her dearly, but probably would never admit it.


I finally broke down and spent money on a bundt pan. Yes yes I know every REAL baker has one, but up to that point I didn't and kept talking about getting one, but hadnt. So now I have one and the first lovely recipe going in it is....

I also am going to make the Spicy Tortilla Soup out of my Food Network magazine. Yum yum, I can't wait for the turn out.

i smell the fallness

so finally the temperature is beginning to drop. A whole week under 90? Fantastic to see if you ask me. This summer was brutal so I am glad it's finally beginning to cool off.

work has been extremely hectic with the recent happenings of retirings and vacations. so catch up has been my name this week and I'm just so glad to say TGIF!

while i was on vacation i did alot of recipe printing, cookbook hunting, cooking and baking. i must say i'm finally getting back into the groove of wanting to cook and bake. there for awhile if i didnt have to and had a way to avoid it i will, but i'm glad im back in the kitchen saddle.
