The amount of meat in the main course can also affect whether food is considered a snack or a meal.


A BLT is a Snack

A club sandwich is a Meal

There are exceptions to this rule as bacon wrapped scallops count as a full meal if you eat enough of them.


My Favorite Fudge Recipe

One of the goals I have for this blog is to post a new recipe each week. The problem is that some weeks I do more cooking than others. I tend to cook two or three meals in the first two weeks of the month and eat leftovers for the rest of the month. Anyway, I have a bunch of pictures I took last year for this candy survey thing and I thought I would use them to post some of the recipes I made for Christmas last year.

St. Louis Visit Recap and the Budweiser Clydesdales

Hi! I’m back from St. Louis! Josh and I had a great time this weekend. We did a bunch of exciting things and a few less exciting things too.

First of all, the drive really sucks! It is 6.5-7 hours long and after about 4 hours I’m tired and ready to stop.

St. Louis, here I come!

I’m traveling to visit Josh in St. Louis this weekend. I decided to post the last few pictures I took on my last visit in honor of this trip. Sadly, I only have three pictures.

On my last trip to visit Josh we went to the Renaissance Faire, we shopped for a mattress and we went to the Laumeier Sculpture Park.

Pepper’s new box

Look what Josh found when he opened up his new sneakers! Just kidding. I think Pepper waited like 5 seconds before she claimed this box as a bed.

Pork Chile Verde

This is one of my favorite dishes! It is warm and sunny, a perfect meal for a cold winter’s day. It is also a great meal if you are feeling under the weather or depressed because eating it just feels like home and happiness. I like to eat it alone as a stew but it is also great on a bed of Spanish rice.
