First - and definitely most important - I want to thank Ashleigh at Made in Morningside for passing along the Liebster Blog award to me! She passed it to me three weeks ago and I'm only posting now - rude!
If you haven't started reading Ashleigh's blog, you're missing out! She recently made a gorgeous pillow from fabric she found at a thrift store, did a fantastic job updating her kitchen and introduced me to Food on My Dog (awesome). Ashleigh and her boyfriend Rodney live in Morningside and I LOVE connecting with bloggers overseas.
"It's a small world after all, it's a small world after all."
Since I passed the Liebster along to five other bloggers in January, I thought I would pass along Ashleigh's picks to spread the blogger love. Her five picks were:
1. Kristen @ Popcorn On The Stove
2. Amanda @ A Helpmeet for Him
3. Jen @ Creating with the J's
4. Yours truly
5. Kristen @ Our Washington Life
Hope you check out Made in Morningside and these other Liebsterific blogs. I already see some bloggers I recognize commenting on Ashleigh's blog - YAY!
And now for the food... I have been super lazy house-wise this week. Which means I've been cooking up a storm! Before I had a house to renovate, I cooked like this all the time :( Someday the house will be done....someday.
Roast salmon with lemon and herbs; roast tomatoes with pesto and parmesan
Chicken and dumplings.
Recipe (Williams-Sonoma One Pot Meals)
Secret family recipe!!! Just kidding...kinda...
and cupcakes... brought to you by Betty Crocker and Duncan Hines.
Topped with cupcake gems.
And finally Thursday
Kung Pao Vegetable Stir-fry
(seen here without the sauce)
Kung Pao recipe was from Ching's Everyday Easy Chinese Cookbook...which I can't find on the internet.
and MORE cupcakes!
Damn you buy 1 get 1 free box of classic yellow cake mix!
And no I didn't eat all the cupcakes the night before. I took them to work and ate them at my desk.
Sprinkled with pink sugar and filled with strawberry jam.
Have a great weekend everyone! See you Monday!
