Photo Dump

Hidy ho neighbor-ino!
 
I've got a lovely phone dump for you since I haven't really shared much since I upgrade my phone from the 4 to the 5s iPhone. My apologies if you have seen some of these.
 
 
One day I decided to cook up some thick cut bacon. I then put it in mashed potatoes and brought it to cousins night. Mashed potatoes are my thing.
 
 
A few of the cousins from girl cousin night. We try to do this once a year and in the summer all the cousins/boyfriends/girlfriends/husbands/wives come up to the cabins and we get weird for a couple of days.
 
 
I spy a little Miley looking at me. There is a chair on the other side of the wall that she sits on so she can get a better view of what I'm cooking in the kitchen. She'll sit there and talk to me until I give her attention. She is the neediest little bugger. But I love her :)
 
 
The view from my old office. Note: I had never had panorama on my iPhone 4 so I got a little obsessed.
 
 
On my last day of my old job, my ex boss let me leave at 8:30 AM. So, I swung by the liquor store and headed up north for what would be the first nice weekend of Spring. Big Ginger in a mason jar on the deck? Don't mind if I do!
 
 
Like I said, pano obsessed. Cabin and frozen lake (which is rumored to have water along the edge now! It's almost boating time, I can feel it!!!)
 
 
Homemade nachos I made for the family. It was quite heavenly honestly. Diced chicken with fajita seasoning, diced red onion, diced jalapeno (btw I just typed it halapeno...oops), over some tortilla chips, quick broil to get it all warm, toss on some shredded cheese and broil a couple minutes longer until cheese is melted and serve with your favorite salsa and sour cream. 
 
 
If you could sleep on arm rests you would too. Admit it.
 
 
My new favorite salad topper. A little bit goes a long way and it adds some nice crunch and flavor.
 
 
Twins home opener I walked around the area and Kierans patio was already filling up. It doesn't matter that people were still wearing hats and mittens to keep warm. It's Spring and baseball season. Which means it's also patio season.
 
 
Finally, this happened over lunch yesterday. The Twins were advertising $6 tickets so I bought one and hung out at the ball park for my lunch hour. $6 gets you in to the park. It doesn't mean you have to sit in your nosebleed seat in the shade. I found a spot near the flag pole where I could see pretty well and parked it for an hour. When I got there it was the bottom of the 1st and we were already down 4-0, then Kubel (who I'm so happy to see back) knocked one out of the park! When I got back to my desk I had a conference call so I watched the rest of the game where we tied it up in the bottom of the 9th and eventually lost in extra innings 7-4.
 
This could be a really awesome summer with frequent afternoon ball games over my lunch hour!
