Amazing Asparagus

Amazing Asparagus by OinK

Hey guys!  I’m back after a little hiatus… crazy holidays, lots of stuff going on at work and was sick all week!  I just had to tell you about this asparagus.  My Aunt Beth made it for Christmas Dinner and it was the biggest hit at the table.  I immediately harassed her via text for the recipe and she sent it to me right away (she’s a sweetheart!)… Continue reading

Last Minute White Bean Dip

OinK White Bean Dip

I don’t even know where to begin.  So much going on in my life right now.  Training for a marathon being one of them.  Some family issues being another, but all in all I’m just insanely busy right now.  Last weekend, Matt and I had a pot-luck dinner at his former boss’s house.  Since this is our third or fourth dinner there, and I’ve always brought something tasty, there have been some built-up expectations of me.  Unfortunately, with my crazy busy schedule, I seriously could not even conceive of having the energy to go to the grocery store to make something on Thursday night when I had court Friday morning (the party was Friday night).

Super Simple Tomatoes with White Beans

Super Simple Tomatoes with White BeansHey guys!  Quick post this evening… Today was a lonnngggg day.  To tell you the truth, I felt like I was in 50 places at once today, so by the time 5 o’clockcame around, I wasn’t feeling much up to making dinner.  But, like a good housewife (yeah right lol), I texted Matt to see what he wanted for dinner.  To my pleasant surprise, he texted back that he was already making spaghetti and had made enough for me as well… what a keeper!

My life is a total mess… a good mess… like this risotto

asparagus risotto

So, basically my life is crazy.  I thought studying for the bar was hard but still I found time to post and tweet and facebook etc. during that frantic time.  Now, life seems even crazier.  My caseload is huge and my retail job which started at 10-12 hrs has been bumped up to about 25-35 hrs per week…. totally not complaining because (a) I love it, (b) I love the people who work there, and (c) I could most certainly use the money!  But with all that combined and snowballing I have had much less time to devote to my favorite outlet– OinK (that’s my cheeky name for Order in the Kitchen and YES I know I left out the “the” but come on? OinK? Can’t get better than that for a food blog nickname… it just screams “I love to stuff my face”.
