Not feeling this. . .something's gotta give

I am really not feeling into blogging myself this week. And that's sad because I have a surplus of things to blog about that are pretty much already written. I don't feel like this blog is going in the direction I want it to and I find that I am becoming more and more attracted to home improvement blogs than foodie blogs, which is not to say I still look forward everyday to seeing if Pioneer Woman has posted a new recipe to try.

And now for your regularly scheduled programming:

Speaking of Pioneer Woman. . .

So the other night, we made the beer braised beef with onions (recipe here: http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2010/08/beer-braised-beef-with-onions/). I added some other veggies to the roast (snow peas, celery, and carrots because I can—and they were in my fridge and needed eating).

Additionally, we made THE bread (Oh my goodness the butter: http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2010/09/the-bread/) and crash hot potatoes (http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2008/06/crash-hot-potatoes/). I substituted dill for the rosemary because I love dill. And I added some sour cream (well a lot of sour cream).

Lastly, my stepson made the monkey bread (http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2009/05/monkey-bread/) all on his own. It was amazing . . . I was so proud . . . it was gone by Sunday morning.

PS No monkeys were harmed in the making of this dinner

Question: I have a really nice camera (Sony DSC H7. . . its like an SLR with training wheels) that I would love to start lugging around with me to take pictures. Buuuuut where do I carry it? Its much bigger than I am used to (my phone camera) and its no point n shoot size. Where / what should I be carrying it in?
