Food Porn

It’s been such a productive weekend!

 

Mom came over for help with her weekly meal plan. We spent 9 hours together. Two hours of which were spent on shopping for groceries at multiple locations because we needed some Asian specialty foods…thankfully, I live conveniently near a HUGE Vietnamese fish market/grocery center.

 

Saturday was fantastic.

 

We got practically free skinny caramel macchiatos [a FAVE] from @TomThumb, since it’s my birthday month (I ❤ them!) and we cooked side by side while watching Pitch Perfect. What did we make?

 

Let me show you, but be sure to have a hanky near – you may unattractively drool all over yourself. At worst, you may faint from all the nummy goodies overload.

 

Brace yourself!

 

Spinach & Mozzarella Stuffed Meatloaf Suggested sides – Smashed Potatoes with a Yummy Salad

 

Mom’s recipe will be up here soon! I promise. Her meatloaf was delish!

We also made Red Curry (sans peppers, because my mama loathes them. Since she was going to pick them out anyhow, I opted to leave them out). I’ll have to make some more for lunch this week, because it was completely devoured – along with the Black Rice [a.k.a. – Forbidden Rice]. Sadly, it was completely gobbled before I had a chance to take a picture. Later this week, for sure!

Red Curry Chicken [Thai Chilis and all, ya’ll!

I know you’re just oozing to know what else we made, right?

Well, we also made three different pasta bakes. Two with homemade alfredo sauce [because, why buy bottles when you can make tons of it for less than $5?]…the other with vodka sauce and tomato-ey goodness.

Cheesy, ooey, goodness! Alfredo Penne Bake

Sunday’s treats were scrumptious too!

I woke up with a hankering for Eggs Oscar and & mimosas.
The bummer? No OJ. The boys guzzled it. [downside to living with three boys – it’s hard to keep the fridge stocked.]
We had crab, cream, eggs – the werks for my required dish. [Oh, I nixed the asparagus. I ❤ me some vegg…but asparagus for breakfast? Yeah, that’s not my scene.]
I learned how to poach an egg about 2 minutes before I started cooking. [Inner “WOO” for getting it right on the first try.]

Now for the middle [I’m damn-near amazed that I restrained myself enough to take this picture]. The second I snapped it, my phone was replaced by the fork. snarf, snarf, snarf…oh, remember to breathe.

Ooh, la, LA – right?

Last but not least…desserts!
Because how could my kitchenfest be complete otherwise, right?
Let me just say…I made 4 dozen chocolate chip cookies. I’m sure you’ve seen a chocolate chip cookie. If not…email me at cerebellumchef@gmail.com and I will personally email you a picture of my chocolate chip cookies. their awesomness cannot be captured in print. – at least not with my iPhone. Sorry, bud.

Now, the Chocolate Chip Cinnamon Banana bread is quite photogenic.
Don’t believe me?
Check this out!

Bahaha! I feel soooooooo devious. You gained ten pounds just from the pictures, huh? I had t unbutton my pants. Don’t be ashamed. You know you loved it.

As Joey from Friends says – “I’m sorry, I’m not even sorry!”

I totes know that sharing these nom nom nom treats is kind of unfair (ya know…because you didn’t get to snarf them down) – but I’m hoping you’re now inspired to conquer your kitchen!

 

Cake

Oh Joey – I feel about cake how you feel about sandwiches!

Go on!
Make something yummy![Then send me the recipe, because I want to try it too!]
