Wishing and Hoping and Thinking and Praying

I really am not a high maintenance girl *giggle*...
Since my 31st birthday is coming up on the 22nd and for some reason I am having a hard time with this one.
My boyfriend thinks my bday wish list is pretty
The first thing on my list is a nice beautiful.... RING!
Not necessarily an "engagement ring", but that would be nice *wink* (Im just sayin)
I have one all picked out in my

Next would be a White 2009 Chevy Tahoe!
Ready to trade in the Jeep and Suburban for this pretty sweet ride.
I am on a mission to make sure we get this SUV or one just like it.
My one final wish to add to my list is a new camera...
Imagine all the pic's I would be taking? Watch out
I tell T my bday wish list.... He kinda freaked out about and asked "why are you wanting pricey stuff for your birthday?"
My answer was... um cause deserve a pricey gift :)

What do you think am I asking to much? The Tahoe is the most needed at this moment and I would be making all the payments, I just need help from my BF of over four years.
Truth is I want them all *giggle* Hey I can dream can't I?

Cookin with Zie~Pork Stew~

Zie chopping carrots her favorite, I think she ate a whole carrots as "I" cut the bite size pieces.
Zie loves to be in the kitchen. Makes me smile with my heart.
She took this onion on like a champ, and I think having glasses helped protect her
Yum pork stew *See recipe link below*
She had a story to tell about celery, peanut butter and raisins. ANTS on a LOG! I remember having those when I was her age.
Making biscuits... and Zie insists on doing it all on her own.
Pouring the milk...
And kneading the dough... She is a pro!
Rolling out the dough... I am so blessed to have a side kick in the kitchen.
Cutting each biscuit out perfectly.
Wallah... Zie's first home cooked Stew and Biscuits.
Of course left overs are packed up for T's meal to go.

Here is the recipe I kinda sorta followed beef/pork stew. One thing about me as I cook and teach Zie as well, is that we just do our own thing as we go along and use the recipe as a reference (prep times).  I pretty much "followed" this link here and used cubed pork instead of beef.
