the unexpected

So, I expected to be back blogging a little more this week but the unexpected happened.  A car accident{everyone is fine!}.  Just when I was getting into my back to school groove it was all interrupted with car shopping, and accident reports, and car buying, and in the end, a happy dance{let me be clear, the death of my minivan did not have me in tears}.
{proof...that I need a new car}

I'm a nervous cooker, which I think is better than a nervous eater although honestly someone has to eat it, and that's usually me.   Then it tastes better with a beer, oh jeez....I'm a nervous cooker, eater and drinker-yikes! So this accident had me a little jazzed up, and then deciding on whether or not to buy a new or used car had me a little fired up, I needed something to do with my hands.
I love the Smitten Kitchen.  Her cooking has transformed my recipe box.  Baked Feta is one recipe to keep for all your entertaining needs.  Read her post{here} for the following yummy treat.

{I'm in love with these colors.  This is what I will dream about making come February 1st when I'm just done with winter}

{I'm deeper in love after tasting it. This is what I'll dream of eating if I'm ever deserted on an island}

{Todd was head over heals in love when he laid his eyes on it.  Cheese....the car buying aphrodisiac for my husband}
*note* Smitten Kitchen uses some crazy cheese I have never heard of and will probably never find.  She suggested using feta as well.You can reheat this dish as needed and I am betting that it makes amazing left overs-if it could ever get that far.  Also, I'm not sure what she suggests serving it with but I tried pita chips, which were good, but I like toasted pita bread better.

Jeez, glad you are ok and I am a nervous eater too! A stressed/mad cleaner but a nervous eater. Hmm, what does that mean about me?
