Where are you, Lala?

I'm still here, trying to catch up on galleries and endless orders! I took some time off for Thanksgiving and to spend time with family - it was great!

Here are some photos from a recent session, of my best friend and her family - they are getting married in February, and I can't wait!

Crazy Kiddos

She will be wearing this hood/cape with her wedding dress - I am so jazzed about that!

Waiting for Twilight

er..uh Midnight. 12:01 to be exact - you see, I'm going to be braving the hoards of screaming teenage girls to go see Twilight tonight! I am such a nerd, I am so excited that I woke up like at 5am today (you'd think it was Christmas!) and now am going to have to take a nap later if I want to be awake for the whole movie! lol

Update: We went to the movie and it was mobbed! It was awesome though, I loved it!

Here's a small part of the line we were in:


I love my hubby more than Edward!

A Rainy Day Recipe

Since my sessions for today got rescheduled because of the rain, I am spending a cozy day at home, getting some work done, and doing on of my favorite things..cooking.

Well, in a way. I'm not much into fancy recipes, but I love to cook using my Crock Pot. I love this thing! I'm always on AllRecipes.com trying to find new things to make (and they let you choose how many servings you need which is awesome when I'm just cooking for Steve and I) Tonight I'm making Peking Porkchops for us, and my parents are coming over as well. It is soooo yummy - after I add my twist to it. - Here's my version (and I don't measure anything, I'm horrible - it totally tastes better when you improvise. Check out the linked recipe if you are into exact amounts)

You need:
Porkchops with fat trimmed (I am making 4 today) It says you could use chicken as well but I haven't tried that.
1 Can pineapple rings (drain juice reserving a few tablespoons - my hubbie gladly drank the left over)
1 red pepper sliced - 1/4 onion sliced (optional, but tasty)

Cover bottom of pot with pineapple rings and place chops on top, top with more pineapple (we really like pineapple!)

In a bowl (this is just what I do - experiment!) stir/whisk together
3 big spoonfuls of brown sugar
2 big squirts of ketchup
2-3 spoonfuls of chopped garlic (I'm lazy and buy in the the jar. sue me)
couple small "glugs" of soy sauce (and watch it here, because the orginal recipe calls for waaaaay to much and makes it really salty)
a squirt of some sesame oil (mmmmm)
sprinkle of ginger (if you have it, I couldn't find mine today)
reserved pineapple juice
some red pepper flakes if you like it spiceh

Whisk together, it should be semi-thick but not runny - pour over everthing in pot and add peppers and onion, cook on low for 5 hours ish. The "sauce" does get a little thin - the link has a review about thickening it with corn starch, which I think I'll do.

I serve it with brown rice and will probably make some broccoli for everyone else (I only eat it raw, I'm weird)

Halloween Aftermath

We had a great Halloween - We took Luke and Daniel trick or treatin' then were off to a Halloween Party! I got a anniversary present from my hubby that came in handy, a PINK point and shoot camera! It was heaven not to worry about losing my "work" camera or anything like that! I have some more photos that I need to get from my mom, but here's some for now!

Here's my hubby and I all dressed up as "MedMan" and "SuperLala"

MedMan and SuperLala!
