Because I know you didn't get enough Bunco pictures yesterday, check out some of the ones Lisa took:



Look...at least Lisa got a picture of the tzatziki!



Lisa, Me and Cathi:



Proud of the Greek Salad:



It was getting dark so my sous chef, Nora had to hold up a flash light so we could see the food:


I ended up bringing out table lamps and putting them next to the barbeque. The lamps worked great and looked awesome! I need to get some lamps out there for sure!

Normally I don't get super excited about leftovers. Last night was an exception:


I had some of the lamb, greek salad and tzatziki. It tasted so amazing. Ahhhhh!!!

Breakfast this morning was an egg beater burrito with pico de gallo and spinach on a wheat tortilla. Of course each bite got some Cholula. :) I noticed that this breakfast stayed with me a lot longer than usual. Yeah! Go eggs!


I took the kids to camp and then it was off to Great News for a cooking class. It was a good one today! The class was called: American Steakhouse Fare.

The first recipe was the best: Mac and Cheese with Bacon and Sweet Paprika:
Holy yum!! The bacon was amazing....that fabulous Trader Joe's applewood smoked bacon. I love mac and cheese!!

The next plate has two recipes: Tamarind Steak Sauce with Sirloin Steak Strips and Roasted Lemon Asparagus AND Oven Roasted Fries with Whole Grain Mustard Aioli and Sweet-Hot BBQ Dipping Sauce:


The steak sauce was delicious!!! I loved the Aioli for the fries. The bbq sauce was just ok for me. I couldn't pick out what was wrong with it but I wasn't a big fan.

The next plate also had two recipes: Pan-Seared Rib Eye Steaks with Porcini Rosemary Rub AND Twice Baked Potatoes with Rosemary, Roquefort and Gruyere:



The steak had a great crust! The instructor, Phillis Carey, decided to grill them instead of pan-searing. They came out great!! Now...onto the potato....as a newish lover of blue cheese....I'm still trying to get used to the extra potent ones. The roquefort in this potato was a little too much for me. I'd rather use a milder blue cheese or boursin.

Dessert was off the hook! Butterscotch Pudding with Cream and Toffee Bits:



I'm not usually a big pudding fan but this knocked my socks off! Did you know that butterscotch is actually made with Scotch? Seems so obvious but I didn't know that. I love learning new things. :)

After class, I had some time to kill before picking up the kiddos so I went to Bloomingdales to look around. I may have found a couple of things. :) I picked up the kids, ran a few errands and came home. I decided to skip a workout today. I've been working out like a mad woman and need a little break...gotta listen to your body right?
Going to sign off now....there are Greek leftovers calling my name in the fridge.
What's your favorite store to buy clothes? I love Bloomingdales...they have amazing sales!!

  2. you look so cute in those photos (not to sound creepy!) The food looks spectacular. The only thing about the yummy foods at your cooking class is that those small portions would just be a tease to me.
