Roast beefs

Last weekend I ate lots of chocolate chip cookie bars and chocolate cupcakes to celebrate my mom's birthday. Instead of regular cookies I made the bars in a jelly roll pan out of pure laziness (it was much faster and still delicious). The cupcakes didn't turn out like I had hoped. I overfilled them and it looked like they had wings coming off each side. The recipe came from Desserts from the Loveless Cafe cookbook and filled with cheesecake! When I go visit Erin in Nashville next May, I am going to have a hard time choosing my dessert(s).

My turn to host The Plum Tarts is March 24th. I made a trial run of boeuf a la mode. It took 2 days and we devoured it in like 15min. Soaked up the marinade/gravy with stale-ish bread. The carrots were outstanding but I want something different for the girls. Working on another beef dish this weekend - maybe something ridiculous with bones sticking out.

Auto Show

We went to the Auto Show last Tuesday. Just for something to do. It's much more fun when you are there looking to buy. My heart still belongs to VW. Before we picked the boys up we stopped at Wexler's for dinner. Haven't been there in ages and sometimes almost forget it's open again.

Feel like we have been eating too much rice under things the past few weeks. Anyways, this week's new recipes are...
Santa fe Chicken - if you made cilantro lime rice this could be a Chipotle-ish dinner
Turkey Zucchini burgers - tasted like veggie burgers, not sure how they would hold up on the grill
Stuffed Pepper Soup - I was starving at work today and slopped this up and felt nice and full. Comfort food!
