And you thought Halloween wasn’t for two more months!
Nope, the scares start early, I have been in the kitchen for the past two weeks, and thankfully no hospital visits have happened!
Okay, actually allow me to take this moment to give myself a virtual pat on the back. So far EVERYTHING (from meatballs to cake to lasagna to bread to pot roast) has been quite a success.
It all started when Shane (AKA best gift giver, ever) got me the greatest thing on planet Earth:
A Tiffany Blue Kitchenaid Mixer!
It came with a nifty little recipe book and I have put that to use! But last night’s dinner was Pot Roast and Homemade Bread.
I found this recipe in my Cooking Light magazine, and it turned out amazing. But I think the best part was cooking with Shane. Cooking is fun by yourself, but with someone you love, it’s plain amazing!!
Normally I don’t purchase bottled water, that’s a preparation in case Hurricane Irene does in fact make an appearance!
Before it went into the oven. I promise it looked more appealing afterwards! Though there were no pictures taken, since it took 3 hours to cook, and we were ravenous! :)
The bread may look a little haggard, but I promise you it was AAAAHHHHH-MAZING.
Also, please ignore my nasty hair. I promise I have washed it since… Haha.
Well, that’s all for now, folks.
