Casseroles & Gangstas

This super yummy casserole christened the awesome vintage Pyrex casserole dish that my beautiful friend Shari surprised me with in Philly. You guys know how I love and collect it... Shari spotted this at a yard sale and thought of me. Love ya and love it!!!

Highlights of the day:

* Brought my coffee outside this morning and this greeted me:


When my sis moved she sent over all her plants to our house. She hadn't watered them for a while and this cactus was half dead. I thought it was a lost cause... Hmmmm. There is a life lesson in that huh?! Never give up, baby.

* Have you seen this website? Get your Gangsta Name. Mine (and it is sooooo flippin perfect) is: Sweet Hoopti Rida

Representing. Word to your Mother.

* Found the perfect shoes for my Halloween costume. They are super cool and still something I can dance and spend all night in. Whatcha gonna be for Halloween? Do you have plans? If you don't... you do now!

Listening to: "Hot N' Cold" Katy Perry

so sad... spinach is one of only 2 or 3 things that I'm having trouble eating post-surgery and this sounds so good!

Fed Ex?

We aren't grocery shopping until the move, so it's canned goods and frozen what not.

Ohmigosh! I just had a flashback to when I was 12! My mom had the EXACT same set of Pyrex when I was growing up! How funny... Hey, maybe she had a yard sale and didnt invite me!

LMAO My gangsta name is Head Chimpanzee. Funny cause I always say a trained monkey can do my job. I tried the cauliflower dish and it was yummy. Had to modify it a little. Gonna try the shrimp packet I think when the hubby and I tailgate before a football game.

Just made it: AWESOME! My two year old loves it too.

I put in chopped yellow squash and a zuk in the layer with the spinach.

To Die For!

Thanks again Shelly.
