Randomly domestic

I know I can't do random as fabulously as Andrea but I will have to muddle through.  It's actually more theme-y than random but bear with me.   It's basically a random food theme.  I know I'm grasping but I'm on vacation and my brain is also ;)

Auntie and I went out to brunch Thursday while Mom was at day care.  It's a newer restaurant in town  and I love it.  I ordered the Eggs Benedict with roasted asparagus and swiss and believe it or not, it tasted even better than it looked.

Today we had some rain which was needed, plus it made me feel compelled to do things around the house (which I typically don't like to do on vacation).  I would love to report that I cleaned the closets (which I promised to do)......BUT.....I didn't ;)

However I did make a large batch of coconut rice pudding.  I love it warm with fresh blueberries

Another meal of fresh vegetables from the farmers market with grilled scallops.  And then I cooked this amazing pasta dish.  Sacchettini stuffed with chicken and bacon.  Yummy 

I mean seriously, how can you go wrong stuffing something with bacon!!  And since there is all his fattening food (and much more I have failed to mention) I purchased another necessary item.....

SPANX !!  I got home and opened the package and saw this tiny garment, like bike shorts except they looked like they would fit an 8 year old girl.   How in the heck is all of THIS going to fit into THAT?? invention E.V.E.R.   Once you wriggle into them they are amazing.  No muffin top and slimming thighs (without a carnival mirror).   

I have another pillow top on the frame.  Bittersweet Sheep should be all hooked this evening and hopefully posted and listed tomorrow.   Hopefully hooking this evening will keep me from eating more :)

This vacation should be called Eat Fest 2013


  1. I was about to commiserate as I thought the pillow top was a continuation of the spanx theme!!!! Cracking myself up here! Enjoy all of the yummy!

  2. Kim ~
    It sounds like you are having the perfect vacation. Hooking and good eats. What could be better?

  3. Hi Kim, I love your idea of doing whatever, whenever, and having your mom at day care giving you a break. Spanx is a great invention or maybe I shouldn't say that, but you see a lot of it being wore. I am anxious to see the pillow finished that you are working on now. We always eat more when we are on vacation. Have a wonderful day. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

  4. With so much good food available, how could you refuse? Hope you have continued pleasure with Spanx. I have never tried it, though it truly wouldn't be unnecessary.:-)

  5. Rice pudding looks yummy.

    Spanx huh....maybe I better get me some too.

    Have a great one.


  6. You have made me so hungry with your photos. My husband would love the eggs Benedict! Hope your weekend goes smoothly.

  7. Eat Fest 2013... Hahahahhaha ! LOVE it! Those dishes looked very yummy...

  8. Those eggs Benedict looked fabulous!

  9. What yummy food. You can come cook for me if you feel like it. Now write me and tell me about these bike short things. I am interested.
    I hope you have a wonderful day hooking. Do you have another week of vacation?

  10. I've never seen Egg benedict served that way. It looks like quite a big plate.
    I've seen some body sliming garment at WallMart yesterday. I wonder if they are similar to the Spanx you are talking about.

    I'm running behind in my comments. It has been so busy at my house this week.
    Enjoy your vacation.

  11. Yumm yummm yummm I love eggs benedict. and your dish sounds good also.
    I have done my fair share of eating this vacation also. I am sure I could us spanx not sure I am up to the struggle to get them on.

  12. OhMyGOSH! An all food post! It all looks absolutely wonderful!! If I don't start walking again soon Ima need Spanx. But I think they would be too hot?

  13. You're killing me with the food pics! Been back on WW for three weeks, so your pics are almost porn to me. Mmmmmmmm.

  14. I had to deeply chuckle at the spandex! Hehehehe
