Right now I am.....:)

I've seen this going around blogland:) And being that my ideas for blogging are at an all time low- here ya go!

Right now I am...

Watching: Modern Family. The hubby and I are addicted to this show. Particularly Cameron Tucker. You're seriously missing out if you don't watch it!

Eating: Just put this fabulous roast in the oven:) It's Pioneer Woman's recipe. And it's a winner:)

Drinking: Water. Lot's of water:( Other than my one cup o joe in the morning, this is pretty much it. I feel like it helps out with my dry skin? And since the hubby has decided to get all healthy on me, wine is sadly more occasional than I'd like:( Down with fitness! It's silly!!! And boring!!!! 

Wearing: A crocheted headband. Perfect for a gal who is so often hair lazy. And it conveniently covers my roots. Yep. Grey ones. Ewwww!!! I swear I have more than my 75 year old mama!

Avoiding: Wrapping presents for some reason. I love to wrap. What the?

Feeling:  Content:) I'm in a happy place. Spent Saturday with my BF making tamales, house is clean, dinner in the oven, listening to the sound of a snoring bully, hubby coming home soon and kids joining us for dinner. That's my kind of happy:) 

Missing: My fav black leather jacket. Seriously. It's MIA. It was the best plain black jacket. For the first time in my life I was wishing Rio had borrowed something of mine and not returned it. I've looked EVERYWHERE for it. And if you know me, you know what an organized freak I am so it's not like I'm going to find it in a closet or in a box somewhere:( Waaaaaaa!!! 

Thankful: For so many things! Like mascara and salt to name a few. For awesome neighbors who come over when you start a fire and didn't check to see if the flue is open and your smoke detector goes off:) makes up for the crappy neighbors who didn't give a hoot when your last house really did catch on fire! True story:(  

Weather:  Raining as I type! Makes me the happiest. I really think I was meant to live in Oregon or Washington. I LOVE dark, gloomy, cold, rainy days. Weird I know.

Praying:  For hearts to soften. For suffering to end. For conflicts to resolve. And for peace... always.  

Needing:  I really don't need anything.  But if I must... Holy sweet UGGS:)

Thinking:   About how I have a severe case of the Savior Syndrome when it comes to old beauties like this one:( If I had the money, I'd save each and every one:)

Loving:  Grande 4 raw sugar lattes, uggs, my kitchen, my cozy bed, bumble and bumble mending shampoo, soft scarves, the fact that Lidija's coming for Christmas! yay! boot socks, heated seats AND a heated steering wheel!, Christmas scented candles, foot rubs from my hubby, mindless TV like Storage Wars, people who actually take the time to read my silly little blog, aaaaand last but not least...the fact that EVERY day is take your dog to work day:)

and you? what are you up to?

Baked eggs... :)

Breakfast and family. One of my fav combos:) The Sunday after Thanksgiving I thought I'd try out this baked egg recipe I found over at Faithfulness Farm:) Baked Eggs. What a concept! You can cook up a bunch at a time and you don't have to spend your morning head down over the stove, when you can enjoy a mimosa instead!!
What you'll need:)
Green onions
Feta cheese
The great thing about this recipe is you can use whatever you have. You can add any chopped meat and use whatever cheese you have... like- chorizo and cotija cheese- or basil, prosciutto and parm?...so easy! so simple! so ME!!

Preheat oven to 350F. Spray as many ramekins as you are going to use with a little oil and line them with chopped spinach. Add 2 eggs to each.

Pour about a TBSP or so of creme over the top:)

Sprinkle with Feta cheese:)

Top with chopped green onions and salt and pepper:)

Stick em on a baking sheet:)

Cook em for 10 minutes:) I cooked mine for maybe 20 because I'm a no runny white stuff in my eggs kinda gal! Just watch them and take them out when they're cooked to your liking:) Again...no rules!!

And here she be. The one and only picture that I got before I devoured the whole thing:)

I served this scrumptiousness with little smokey sausage and toast. Easy, pretty and tasty. Eggsactly what like to cook:)
