Aloo Out

My hubby, Sam, said to me yesterday afternoon, “get dressed, we’re going somewhere ( I was in my pajamas, don’t judge me).” We ended up at the Indian grocery store. He had very sweetly decided he was going to make me dinner, a new dish we had never tried. Yay! We had a few momentsContinue reading “Aloo Out”

Stuffed Mushrooms

I am one lucky girl. I will be sitting on the couch with my husband when he starts furiously googling and then tells me he is going to cook me something. He usually asks if that is ok. Ummmm, yeah it is! Last night he got inspired and decided to use the portobello mushrooms IContinue reading “Stuffed Mushrooms”

Cheese!!!!!

My parents called to wish the hubby a happy birthday and asked if his present had arrived. Ummm, no… We had no idea what it was! The next day a package arrived. I would say that I couldn’t wait for it to be opened because it was a mystery, but that would be lie. TheContinue reading “Cheese!!!!!”

Smoked Tofu ( and salmon)

Inspired by Hell’s Kitchen, Sam(the hubby) has been working on his presentation with food. He practiced a few times making this meal before making it for my parents. It came out great! Smoked salmon with wilted spinach, blanched tomatoes and honey mustard sauce. For me he made smoked tofu. It looked beautiful and was delicious.Continue reading “Smoked Tofu ( and salmon)”

The hubby and I enjoy binge watching Hells Kitchen and it has influenced us many times. From learning certain techniques to trying different meals. Recently we’ve made ratatouille and risotto. Well, the hubby is at it again! He’s decided he wants to up his cooking game, especially since he wants to impress the in-laws (Continue reading “Michelin Style Food”

First Wedding Anniversary

I couldn’t believe it! An entire year has gone by since the Hubby (Sam) and I got married. Sure we had been planning a wedding for a year, but due to the Pandemic, we never had the opportunity to go through with it. We ended up hurriedly getting a Justice of the Peace as theContinue reading “First Wedding Anniversary”

Small Operation

I didn’t write last week due to an operation I had. The surgery was small and took less than an hour, but it really knocked me on my behind. The side effects were what got me. Luckily I was able to spend the week mostly sleeping and sitting zombie-like on the couch. The hubby wasContinue reading “Small Operation”

Floating Shelves Finished!

Whew! It’s one of those projects that we expected to take a day or two that ended up taking about three weeks. We learned a lot along the way as well (ahem, mistakes were made). You see the floating shelves all over the internet, in home make-overs and Pinterest, but how do you do them?Continue reading “Floating Shelves Finished!”

What a relief!

On Sunday, the sun came out. It was a beautiful 75 degrees! It was a huge relief to be back to the weather we know and love. Of course Texas still has a long way to go before getting back to normal and recovering from the storm, but it is a huge step in theContinue reading “What a relief!”
