Every now and then I take a weekend and try a bunch of new recipes. This is one of those weekends.

Yesterday, after seeing the link to the recipe posted by a Facebook friend, I made Gnocchi macaroni and cheese-


Which I served with pan-grilled ginger-honey pork tenderloin (however we used the real grill since it was a nice day)-


And steamed green beans. It was a delicious meal!

After I’m finished with this post, I will head into the kitchen to tackle this-


Banana cream pie with salty bourbon caramel. Yum (I hope). This afternoon, I’m trying another recipe from NoblePig-


Slow cooker Thai chicken noodle soup (the best part about Asian-style soups are the garnishes–hot peppers, lime juice, cilantro, fresh bean sprouts, Sriracha sauce…)

I’ll probably serve BLTs and fries with this, so the meal will not be authentically Thai–maybe Asian-American fusion?

Hopefully today’s recipes will turn out as well as yesterday’s. You never know…

My next post will be a library post. I am participating in the Library Day in the Life Project which begins tomorrow. I’ll be posting mid week. For the last round, I did two posts–one about my real day-in-the-life as a cataloger and one about the day I imagined having.

The only thing I think I know for sure is that this round I will not be writing about what happens in a day in the life of me–real or imagined. I guess that doesn’t make much sense considering that’s kind of the point; however, I prefer to try something new. We’ll see where that thought leads.

Actually, now that I think about it, I take back what I said earlier. My next post will not be a library post. The whole point of this blog is that in many ways libraries are a reflection of life. So my next post will attempt to reflect that premise. I hope.

If you try any of these recipes, let me know how they turn out!

And, by the way, this is my 100th post! Looking forward to 100 more.
