How to follow up such a thing? Since veggie comfort food seemed like theme worth sticking with, I decided to try some Sweet Potato Pot Pies from 101 Cookbooks. GOOD DECISION, ME.
I was actually pretty skeptical about this combination of ingredients, but it was just the perfect amount of every flavor and it was extremely satisfying. I was super pumped to have leftovers. Those two little pies temporarily filled the gap in my fridge, and in my heart.
I have been doing other cooking too, but mostly for Anna and nothing flashy. I figured since she generally only wants to eat crunchy things, I would make her crunchy things, so I tried out cheddar crackers and graham crackers from the cookbook that spawned the ill-fated omelet. She likes them both! I also like them both. Crunchy things for the win.
Saturday was pretty exciting, as it marked the first time we've ever ordered something specifically for Anna. Her very own egg and cheese breakfast taco!
Saturday night we partied at Kevin and Mary Beth's. Check out the super sweet spread:
I even threw in some caramel corn. With, um, bacon in it.
There were plenty of things there to make Little Bug happy.
Plenty of things to make me happy, too.
Mary Beth claimed that some of the pigs in a blanket had cheese in them, but I'm pretty sure she was just messing with me to see how many I would eat in search of a cheesy one. Joke's on her though, because "as many as I possibly can" was going to be the answer either way.
