Food & Fun

Back again for a little lighter of a post then my last one. The Tuesday before I left for Ohio was Mikey's birthday. I had given him his presents over the weekend and on Monday but I did make him a birthday cake. It was my new recipe for that week. I made a yellow cake with peanut butter chips in it and iced it with homemade chocolate peanut butter icing which was rich and absolutely delicious! Mikey loved it and even though he ate most of the cake by himself he has already asked that I make the icing again!!!

Mikey's Cake

While in Ohio I didn't have a chance to try any new recipes I just made my grandmother's meals to her specifications though she did say I made one hell of a toasted turkey sandwich! My sister however cooked for the family twice and she made some awesome awesome meals! One night we had vodka sauce with this super delicious salad with caramelized apples and Gorgonzola cheese it was out of this world and then the next night she made wild mushroom risotto with these fabulous cheese toasts and another great salad with spinach, walnuts, bacon, potatoes it was out of this world. I'm definitely going to have to make some of these recipes for Mikey. I was thinking about making them today but I'm pretty certain that's not going to happen maybe tomorrow!

While in Ohio me and my mom did manage to sneak to a couple of scrapbooking stores so I am stocked up on supplies for new projects and starting tomorrow I am joining in on a Week in the Life project. Details for the project can be found here and I will be posting thoughts and finished pages as I go. Wish me luck because every time I try one of these projects I always end up giving up on it but this time I'm determined to complete it.

Also starting tomorrow I am going to start working out and walking on a more regular basis and I am hoping that my readers will hold me to that. I definitely need to get better at taking care of myself. So my plan is to do a workout before I even take Mike to work and then when I come back from dropping him off I want to take Hooper out for a nice long walk. So I will let you know how that goes.

Other fun stuff - while in Ohio I got to spend time with our good friend Lisa. She just rocks and I'm so happy that my mom has someone like her living nearby and I look forward to spending time with her and her family again at Christmas. Thanks for a great night out Lisa and thanks Mark for introducing me to Ramsey! Also while in Ohio me, Lisa and my mom made a guest appearance on my dad's podcasts. You can find my dad's podcasts at take a listen we are dying to know what you think!!
