Part of our household-wide purge includes me sifting through oodles and oodles of digital photographs. My hope is to have them cropped, retouched, and uploaded into photo albums. I’ve been saying this for more years than I want to say. It’s my albatross.
Part of me being who I am and trying to avoid sorting through oodles and oodles of pictures involved a little blog maintenance. I’ve added a Comfort Food Recipe Index tab at the top of my blog. It’s a brand new page that has the links to all of the recipes posted on the blog. Yipee–organization! The links will take you to the pictoral recipe post. As always, you can print, share, stumble upon, digg, or email the illustrated recipes by clicking the appropriate buttons at the end of the post. Click away! It’s fun!
Printable recipes (text only) are available under my Comfortably Domestic profile on Pioneer Woman’s Tasty Kitchen site. Just click my Tasty Kitchen Profile badge in the right margin of the blog. I know it’s a bit cumbersome for a text only printable, but until I figure out another solution, I hope it works for you! Let me know what you think!
And back to the photos! I found this little gem:
I love this picture for so many reasons:
- It was Halloween. Son #2 hates Halloween. He doesn’t like “scarwy stuff.” (Like his Mama.) He is deathly allergic to 98% of the candy given, so the prospect of trick-or-treating isn’t very exciting. He does like dressing up, so he is conflicted on the whole idea. He thought he might like to try trick-or-treat, not as the lion that he originally decided on, but as a Tonka truck. He even showed me the specific toy truck that he wanted to be. Two hours before trick-or-treating started.
- I think he was trying to stump me. He’s a clever kid.
- I made this costume 2 hours before trick-or-treating. You can see he is both impressed and thrilled to wear it. Actually, he loved it and played with it for months, afterward. He is just camera shy.
- I made him wear that bulky, new sweater to stay warm. He hates new clothes. Making him wear somthing new rounded out his tri-fecta of horror that year.
- That was the year that we decided not to try to get him to participate in Halloween any more. We are all much happier now.
- I just love that kid.
