a starchy debacle

How does scalloped potatoes with ham sound to you? Unless you're a vegetarian I bet it sounds pretty good. All the cheesy, starchy, ham...y, goodness all thrown together in a casserole and baked until bubbly and evil.

But alas, this picture is deceiving. This was quite possibly the most disappointing meal I've had in a long long time. The worst since I discovered that there is such thing as too much goat cheese in your asparagus pasta. That one scarred me for life I think.

Moving on!

The potatoes. Were practically RAW. How does this happen when you bake at 350 for an HOUR?? I mean, what a tease. I had to sit in my apartment smelling the deliciousness that is heart-attack casserole and my first bite goes *crunch*. :/ I was apparently so damn excited about said dinner I (obviously) had a friggin photo shoot with it before consumption. Poor me.

On a related note, I really REALLY need to get Julia Child's cookbook Mastering the Art of French Cooking. The kitchen department of Bed, Bath and Beyond is calling my name and I really want some roasted chicken. The ham and potato crap-erole needs to be made up for. For real.

Moving over

Ahhh...hear that?? That's the sound of a fresh start. I was on Wordpress for a bit and I'm making the switch to Blogger because, let's be honest, I'm not a journalist so Wordpress makes my head hurt. I only have so much room left in my brain for blogging and such, since most of my cranial energy is focused on diapers, naps, grocery lists, kid-friendly dinners, and melt-down avoidance tactics (mostly in regards to myself). I'm not going to spend the better part of my "me time" copying and pasting all my posts from there to here, so for all who are curious or bored (or both!), HERE's the link to Bradford Brood: Wordpress Edition. :P

Happy blogging!
