He Happy, She Happy, We Happy

The dilemma – we are grilling steaks.  We picked up beautiful bone-in ribeyes, the king of all steaks.  He wants lionized hash browns as a side.  She wants healthy sides. Ahhhhh!  How do we make everyone happy?

I took a stab at making a healthier version of this diner favorite.  It was fantastic.

This recipe calls for Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning, one of my ultimate favorites. You can make your own spice mix; however, having a Tony’s on hand is an easy, remarkable add in for: potato salad, macaroni salad, grilled shrimp fish and chicken, and deviled eggs.

You Wish You Had a Camera When . . .

When it comes to being a mom and capturing those magic moments on camera – I’m the worst.  I tend to get wrapped up in the moment and simply forget.  Then 2 minutes after it’s over I say “why didn’t I get a shot of that”?

I have captured a few of those crazy moments

Mattie?  No, that’s not my beautiful daughter
CT, are you grilling nakie?
 I can’t stay.  I really mustache.

 Sponge Bob?

Yesterday, during a 6 mile trail run, I made a right turn and straight in front of me was a wild turkey.  Did he fly away?  No!  He tried to outrun me.  His butt was swinging left and right as he frantically continued down the path.  It was the funniest thing I have ever seen (except maybe when I saw an owl running after a bunny and thought it was a 3 legged cat).  I wish I had my camera so that I could share it with you all.
What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.”

What’s the funniest moment you have caught on film?
