In response to a comment from last post: Thank you for your comment! Sorry about the picture, if it helps at all here are links to the components of the spice rack from IKEA: the magnetic bar and the spice canisters.
On to today. Why was today wonderful? Well after a unfortunate bout of food poisoning yesterday (which forced me to leave work after only being their for 40 minutes) and wasting the day away on the couch when I got home, I feel much better today. I was able to get my weekly cleaning (dusting, vacuuming, mopping) done in time for my yoga show at 11:30 which was promptly followed by more exercising while watching TV. After lunch and a shower, I picked up some great deals at a Ross near my house followed by even better deals at Aldis. Upon retuning home I was able to get quite a few more chores done that had been neglected due to work and I was even able to make dinner and dessert!
Grandma had sent Mike and I home last week with a bunch of food which included a plethora of frozen fish. Tonight's dinner was a baked haddock dish based on this recipe.
Right out of the oven:
While the fish was cooking I stumbled across this recipe while I was looking for a slow cooker recipe. I never thought to try dessert in a crock pot....genius! It said it only took about 2 hours to cook and I had all the ingredients so I figured having dessert a couple hours after our dinner had settled wouldn't be that bad. The finished product (while cooling before removing for serving):
Since I used tomatoes in tonight's dinner I thought I should check on our tomatoes outside:
Until next time, please enjoy this photo that a student working with me a few years ago took of one of my research tokay geckos:
