Channeling My Inner Martha

While I have figured out that blogging about food - especially taking pictures of said food - should be left to the experts, I was abnormally prolific in the kitchen today, and because that taxed all the creative energy I might have otherwise used to come up with an interesting blog topic, this afternoon you are getting pictures of food*.

First, I put together a take-home meal for friends who just had a baby.  There's broccoli and dip, chili ingredients in the crock-pot that just needs to be plugged in, cheese and sour cream for toppings, and corn bread.  I'm hoping it will provide a good meal plus a lot of leftovers (at least if it tastes good).

Plus I got baby Ben 'n' Jerry's pints for desert.  My hand is in this picture both to show you the scale and to show my approval.

I also attempted to make up for all of the times I brought a 2-liter of Diet Coke to our office potluck lunches by making a quiche to take to a gathering this week.  Multiply this guy x2 because I had two pie crusts and two quiches worth of spicy greens I wanted to get rid of.  

And last but not least, I made coconut bars for our church small group meeting tomorrow.  Coconut is one of those foods that people feel strongly about, but *I* really like it and I'm hoping that someone else will as well.  I've never made this recipe before, so I may have to test one out tonight for quality control purposes.

And there you have it.  Now I feel completely justified in eating Campbell's for dinner for the rest of the week.

*And one very long run-on sentence.
