Cajun tastes!

I am working on this little blog, slowly but surely!  It's gonna be awesome, just like it used to be. ;)

This weekend has also been awesome!  A little bit of this:

Sunning myself in the backyard. Aaaaahhh. Don't get me wrong, I adore the beach, but this time of year? Unless I'm up early it's a tourist paradise for parking!  In my opinion, anytime after 8:30 in the morning is gonna be a fight.  I'm more than content to stretch out on my lawn chair, queue up the Pandora beach channel, grab my glass of iced sweet tea...... and relax.  Good stuff indeed!

We watched the US Women vs. Brazil today; I won't go into detail or get up on my soapbox here, but it was an amazing game and I'm so so proud of our US ladies for continuing to fight when the odds kept stacking against them.  Amazing game, and well deserved win! :)

After a few beers I cooked up my lunch for this week.  .... Yup.  I'm really mostly doing it to be healthy.  But the saving money thing helps a TON. ;)  This week?  Grilled chicken with black beans and rice.  Cajun style!  Kinda makes me wanna go here:

I'd be so front and center on that porch with a mint julep and a frilly parasol, y'all. Don't even ask me twice!! ;)  In fact, there are so many things about this photo that delight me.  The fencing, the adorable wreath on the door, the window detail... oh, and the greenery... I think I was a N'awlins landscaper in a past life!

Okay, okay, I'm done.  No more fantasizing about being a plantation wife.  Time to Tupperware up my sassy food for the real working womens world... (heehee!)
