Real food for dinner

"Do you know what I use my oven for?" "Warming your pants in the morning?" "Yes! And it feels good."
So, the name of my blog is getting to be somewhat of a lie. As I posted about below, one of the things I want to do this year is to cook more. I've never been much of a cook. At all. It's mostly because I am so freaking lazy sometimes, but also because I'm not very good at it. Buuut, I'm being a good girl and have made myself dinner (and by made, I don't just mean preparing boxed mac and cheese instead of a frozen meal, I actually mean cooking) the past two nights.

Tonight, I'm making pork chops slathered in mushroom soup and having a baked potato with a side salad and a large glass of ice water with lemon. Part of the plan is to make extra so I can have it for lunch too. I'm becoming a house mom guys!

Might not sound all that appetizing to some, but it's a lot better than a Lean Cuisine, that's for sure. Sorry I don't have any pictures. It took awhile to make and by the time I was done, I just wanted to eatt!

I think the main thing about my 27 Things list is that I'm not really doing it as a New Years Resolution. I don't mind if I don't keep them all, in fact, that's why there's so many. It's just the striving to do them--the process, if you will--that I'm enjoying. I like the fact that I feel more in control over things and that I can change myself and my actions if I just decide to. Yeah, I'm getting a little deep, soooo, here's a picture to offset that.
Chef Lindsey! Tee hee.

Reading Jane Austen makes me feel girly

I got this book from Barnes and Noble online and I love it. It's so pretty I want to eat it.

I'm actually going to re-read Emma first (because that's the first one I read) but only after I finish North and South.

My glasses are really only there because my camera refused to focus.
Also, I'm starting a list of things I'd like to accomplish this year. Not really New Years resolutions, per se, but things I want to do. The list isn't finished yet, but it's a start. I do realize I put 2008, but that's because it'll probably take me till March to remember to write 2009. There are 27 because that's how old I'll be (gasp!)
