Table for Two (I didn't look at the blog other than this recipe so I don't know if it's a good one or not)I used foil the first time and the parts I could unpeel were delicious but they mostly just stuck right to the foil. Yes, the recipe says to use parchment or silicone liner. I didnt have a silicone mat so I bought two at Bed Bath and Beyond - they were 15 bucks each and of course I used a two coupons!
Scott found a Mexican grocery store in Indy that has a restaurant attached - we are thrilled.The meats and vegetables are cheaper and better than my local store. The restaurant prices are good and the food is great! I just wish it wasn't so far away. I have two new obsessions - Horchata and tostadas - let me explain - Horchata - a Mexican rice drink - surprisingly refreshing. Of course at the restaurants they make it full of fat but Skinnytaste has a recipe for it that is fantastic. A warning though - I only use 3.5 to 4 tablespoons of sugar - the first time I used the full 1/3 cup I had to make another batch and add no sugar and put them together (so sad to have to make two batches - not hahah) so if you make it add the sugar gradually and decide for yourself.
peaches and cream popsicles I used homemade almond milk - so much better than store bought and so easy to make! I found a 2 pound bag of natural almonds at Walmart for 12 bucks - I have only used a cup - so not that expensive either. So the popsicles are very tasty but also too much sugar - so add it gradually as well. Also, on the peach chunks - either puree all the peaches or peel the skin off because the skins are weird when frozen.
scallop taco recipe that is fantastic - really!!

Scott's birthday is coming up - July 9th. Recently he took a business trip to Iowa and while there stopped at a bakery for breakfast called The Kettle House He brought home "Salted Caramel Chocolate Roos" They are so good he thought he might not share them with me - ha!! So for his birthday I decided to get some sent here
I have a before and after picture. We brought two dressers from Colorado - one is more of a workshop piece than a dresser. The brown one on the right just needed cleaned up and some wood nailed in to stop the drawers from going too far in. Scott did those things and we put it in the guest room, it is a pretty little dresser. The other one he painted black and put it in the basement for cords and stuff like that.
Well I guess that's it for today. I need to do homework so I can stitch. I got a 97 on the last test and have an A now - ohhhh geeez - only 4 more weeks of class! Be safe celebrating!! Thanks for stopping by!!
