What's for dinner

While at the furniture store yesterday I lost my cell phone. I realized it on my drive home. It was too late to turn around as we closed the store. We were shopping for a television stand. Finally we will have a new TV and a stand with storage to hold the DVDs laying on the floor. While they drew up the paper work for us to sign we looked at couches. I sat on so many couches and I could have lost the phone anywhere. I tried calling it a hundred times in case I lost it elsewhere. I hoped someone would answer it. Today I drove back down there and managed to find the phone. I marched over to the sprint store and as I was on my 30 day window since I broke the before the one I lost I was able to replace this ugly grey one with my beautiful new red palm phone. Did I mention it was red. I love red. It is such a bold , sexy color.
Later this afternoon I spent a lot of time in the kitchen. So I was flipping through the channels last week and I stopped on the food network. I watched Tyler Florence whip up this awesome meal. I gave it a shot and it was fun to make. It took two hours instead of the 30 min the recipe suggested. I served it with angel hair pasta and it was okay. I think I will change several things about the recipe. The sauce was too chunky with all the peppers. Anyway for a Monday it was a long busy day.
Here is a link to the recipe if you want to try it.

Photo Challenge #15 - ABSTRACT - 4-10 September

Okay ladies I am very late this week but better late than never. Thanks for checking it out. I got some of these shots when the balloon was literally over my head. I lay on my back on a rocky sage covered hill. I took several where I had my necking stretched up toward the sky and it no not stretch that way anymore. I almost fell and then decided to lay in dirt. What I always tell my kids not to do. I was all alone so no judgement from the peanut gallery was passed. I had so much fun all by myself and a date with z7590. I need more dates with that camera. Thanks for looking. Please let me know what you think. I bright glowy one was taken at dawn patrol around 5am. I was up 3am and on my way and was there waiting since 4am. It was worth sacrificing my sleep. I will do again in a heartbeat. I am convinced I will meet death while taking a picture. Silly me !
