Oh joy, new camera!

Happy birthday to me!

Yes, that's right, this year for my birthday, I got a fancy new camera! I decided I have waited long enough, it was time for a DSLR. I got a Canon Rebel XSi, and so far I love it! Here's just a smattering of photos...

Isn't this fun?? Well, it is for me :)

So now, let's talk a little bit about food! Last night, Chris and I had a friend over, and we cooked some new york steaks from Costco. Oh they were pretty!

We also cooked some fingerling potatoes...

Tasty dinner!

We actually had 4 steaks, and 3 people, so we cooked the extra steak and stuck it in the fridge to make steak salad today. For this, we did a simple salad of green leaf lettuce, orange and yellow bell peppers, red onion, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar. And of course, the cold steak. I truly love cold steak!

So tasty, and now my pictures actually can portray the deliciousness!

Thanks to everyone who helped pitch in to make this a great birthday present!
