Feb Photo-A-Day: On your bedside table

I don't really have a bedside table so, instead, here's Libby taking over my pillow as her own bed. :)

Feb Photo-A-Day: Word

Not a word so much as Rich's nickname for me :)

Feb Photo-A-Day: Makes You Smile

Wearing jewelry to work that fits a theme for activities later that night makes me smile. :)

Feb Photo-A-Day: Inside Your Fridge

This is the little fridge my co-workers and I share in our department. Food goes missing from the 2 big ones in the break room. :P

Feb Photo-A-Day: Love is...

...waking up to a middle-of-the-night e-mail from a loved one who lives under the same roof... just reminding me in case I forgot. :)

Feb Photo-A-Day: Where You Ate Lunch

Home with a massive headache so I ate lunch with Barney, Ted, Marshall, Lily, and Robin ("How I Met Your Mother")

Feb Photo-A-Day: Entrance

To be honest, this was the *third* place my mind went to but the first one that wasn't completely inappropriate. ;)

Feb Photo-A-Day: Guilty Pleasure

With my food allergy, there are only 2 things in the vending machine at work that I can get that won't make my tum hurty: (overly) salted almonds and Lay's classic potato chips. I rarely carry cash but when I do and the snack monster hits at work, I occasionally indulge in a package of these. :)

Feb Photo-A-Day: Something Orange

I work at Home Depot's corporate office so there were a lot of orange things to choose from... but I chose something more "me". :)

Feb Photo-A-Day: Your Name

My name is actually made up of initials. "SA" are my mother's initials, "RR" are my biological-only father's initials, and "AH" are my maternal grandmother's initials. My mom decided it would be pronounced "suh-RAH"...kinda of like "Que Sera Sera". 

Understandably, it gets mispronounced as "Sarah" quite often and some baby books even have *my* name as an alternate spelling of it now.

Of course, my friends all call me "Sashi." :)

Feb Photo-A-Day: Soft

Part of my morning routine is to pet an enthusiastic, fluffy Rustle. At least he waits on the sink for me. Sidia attacks me as soon as I get out the shower. :-P

Taco Bacon Cheesy Crunch Mix

Every year for the Super Bowl when I was growing up, my Dad made something called "Quarterback Scramble" from a Chex recipe in the newspaper. This is my version of that.

I swear, this is like crunchy crack.  I cannot get enough of it, even though I know it's not exactly the healthiest snack in the world.  But, it's not uncommon for me to eat it in lieu of a meal so that balances it out, right?  Right?? :)
Click here for the recipe

This is one of those recipes that calls for butter and you need to use real, actual butter and not some sort of butter substitute as it will end up with a weird soggy texture. 

*IF* you are able to do portion-control-thing, a 1/2-cup serving has about 200 delicious, totally-worth-it calories. :)

Quarterback Scramble has Wheat Chex, Corn Chex, butter, packaged taco seasoning, beer nuts, beef jerky, and American cheese. Mine uses Rice Chex, Corn Chex, butter, homemade taco seasoning, peanuts, bacon and Cheddar. Not completely different but just as addicting!

Feb Photo-A-Day: Something You Smelled

I started Chicken Curry Stew in the slow cooker before I left for work and I can still smell this spice even though I'm at work now. :)  It's a new recipe so, if it turns out to be yummy, I'll post more about that later!

Feb Photo-A-Day: Fork

I decided to give my first "a-day" anything a go. :)  This is via www.fatmumslim.com.au if you want to see the whole list. 

Today's theme is "Fork" so here is the assembled fork from my cutlery kit I use everyday for lunch at work. It even has chopsticks!
