Who is this blogger and what did she do with that blog slacker?

As of today I have now posted sixty days in a row, what’s going on with that???  I guess that M3’s Spring Fling 30 posts in 30 days was the kick in the @ss I mean motivation that I needed to jump start my blogging again.  I have actually enjoyed finding something to blog about each day and I know that looking back it will be very interesting for Maisie and I to see all the things that were going on.  As I said last month, I’m not sure how long this daily blogging will continue but for right now, I’m trying my best to post daily.

When I was doing the 30 posts in 30 days I had asked for suggestions and ideas for blog posts and most of the suggestions/requests were for more recipes.  So starting today I’m going to try and post at least one recipe per week.  It’s funny because even though the weather has been heating up, I have been in a cooking mood so it works out well for getting more recipes posted.

First before the cooking talk, a little thing that Maisie said to me this morning that just struck me funny.  She asked me “Mama do you think my bum bum has grown enough to wear Hello Kitty?”  It took me a minute to figure out what she was talking about and then I realized that she was asking if the Hello Kitty panties, which I bought for her way back when she first toilet trained in June 2008, would fit her.  The panties are size 2T/3T but they ran big so I tucked them away in the back of her panties drawer and there they’ve sat…For three years!  Back in 2008 I found some 2T/3T Sesame Street and Disney Princess & Fairy panties which ran quite a bit smaller than the Hello Kitty panties so she wore those and amazingly, she’s been wearing those original panties ever since!  I told her to give the Hello Kitty panties a try and they *almost* fit her as they’re in her words, “a little baggy in the bum.”  Guess her bum bum hasn’t grown all that much but it is the cutest little bum bum I’ve ever seen.

Now on to food!

IMG_7821eThis past week I made a new recipe, Stir-Fried Asparagus with Water Chestnuts, Ginger and Cashews.  I absolutely adore asparagus and right now they’re in season, easy to find and cheap!!  I especially love the super thin and tender asparagus and earlier this week I was at the market and 2 pounds for $3.00, thank you very much!  I had planned on doing my usual, tossing them on the grill and then just feasting on the slightly charred spears for a couple of days but while perusing some cooking blogs I happened upon a stir fry recipe that struck my fancy and sent me in a different, yet fabulously delicious direction.  So if you love asparagus, or stir fry, or vegetables (as this would totally rock with long or string beans or even broccoli come to think of it) head on over to Cook Lisa Cook and check out my recipe for Stir-Fried Asparagus with Water Chestnuts, Ginger and Cashews.

    Oooh, I love asparagus any way you cook it! I'm not crazy about water chestnuts, though. Or bamboo shoots. Those are two ingredients I often leave out of stir fries.

  2. Love asparagus too! Have sent your recipe to my Chef!
    Blogging everyday? I do occasionally, but run out of ideas. I average about 25 posts a month. We like to post recipes too, that way we can find them again!
