Chef M3RLz: 12/29/12

Tired of spaghetti and meatballs?  Try this on for size:

with codfish!

It might sound like a weird dish but trust me, it's yummy. Here is what I used:
  • cod fillet
  • ripe tomatoes, diced
  • large onion
  • olive oil
  • garlic clove, minced
  • tomato sauce
  • spaghetti
  • hot sauce (I use pepper sauce, Mom uses cayenne)
  • Italian seasoning
  • Salt and pepper
It can be paired with garlic bread, a side salad, or you can eat it by itself.

Is it just me or does it look like someone shaved my eyebrow while I was sleeping?!?!?

Chef M3RLz: 12/16/12


My computer's hard drive died so all of my food-related pictures are MIA until I can pay someone to burn them onto my external hard drive. 

You'd think I would have learned my lesson the first two times that this happened to me.  

Moving along.... 

I'll continue to try and cook once a week but I can't make any promises. This year, my immune system has taken quite a beating! Since Thanksgiving, I've had a cold and the flu and it hasn't even been a month!!!!

Without further interruption....

Today's meal:

Long grain and wild rice, baked BBQ chicken, potatoes au gratin, and salad.

I told everyone on twitter and facebook that I made it from scratch but I didn't. Well, it can be considered "from scratch" since I made it straight out of the box!!!

  • Long grain and wild rice - Uncle Ben's (very yummy)
  • Baked BBQ chicken
  • Potatoes Au Gratin - Betty Crocker
  • Salad - Stop & Shop

My First Ponytail

I've been natural for almost 4 years now but because of my ongoing battle with shrinkage, I've never been able to achieve a decent ponytail. There's always been something wrong: not enough hair to grab, not enough hair hanging from the ponytail, etc, etc.

For the past 2 weeks, I've been sporting a protective style. I was suppose to wash my hair on Saturday but instead I procrastinated for the whole day. Finally got myself motivated but instead of washing my hair, I decided to cook dinner (click here for post).

Anywho, I woke up an hour late this morning, because of my dreaded on again-off again relationship with insomnia, and needed a style for church.  Didn't want to wear a hat or throw on a wig, so I had no choice but to finally do a ponytail. To add a little pizzazz, made 2 twists on each side of my head so I wouldn't need a headband or any other accessory.  Pictures posted below.

P.s.: I've tried a bunch of products but the hairline on the left side of my head refuses to grow back. Stupid relaxers! Stupid Traction Alopecia! Stupid, stupid, stupid!!!!


Doesn't my ponytail look sad??? :0(
