this weeks eats

Yesterday's Outfit - Blouse: second hand store, Pants: H&M, Riding Boots: Ring: Africa

I have a few recipes I tried this week and they were all a smashing success. First off: 

Baked Brown Sugar Chicken Wings with Roasted Red Pepper Cream Sauce. Recipe here.

With a side of Cumin Lime Carrots. Recipe here.
I have NEVER ever liked cooked carrots but these were packed with flavor and were delicious!

 I told you all last time I had gotten mushrooms and attempted to cook with them. And surprise surprise... I liked them. Maybe it was because with the recipe I used, the mushrooms were just a mere vehicle to get the delicious ingredients into my mouth. And I even felt like a chef because I strayed from the recipe. The original recipe (here) was a mushroom stuffed goat cheese, tomato recipe. I however already had several other types of cheeses so I skipped the goat cheese. Instead I oven roasted the tomatoes, and then chopped them up and threw them in a bowl with equal parts ricotta, parmesan, and mozzarella cheese (with the spices they suggested). I also topped it off with bacon. The only other thing I changed was that I didn't have a lemon so I used a lime (in the dressing that covers the mushrooms). Oh and of course I didn't use Portobello mushrooms, just the regular small ones. Anyway they were really good and Spencer ate his, and half of mine. Oddly enough they kind of tasted like a pizza bagel (maybe that's why I like them so much). I think I will definitely make them again!

Welp, this weekend I'm going to be busy working on these crafts: 
Holly berry monogram wreath

Mason jar snow-globes

Hand made trees (tutorial here)

 I don't know if it's just me but I'm waaaay sad for the 50 degree weather to go. Glad to be spending Christmas in Vegas! Now I'm off to Buffalo Wild Wings. Have a good weekend!!

  1. I made the Mason jar snowglobes today! I'm not sure how I feel about them yet. I think the snow I used was too chunky. Are you going to put water in yours?

    1. No I wasn't. Did you put water in yours? I was going to use Epson salt for the snow. What did you use?

  2. I didn't put water in mine, which was good. I used some fake snow from Michael's but Epson salts sounds much better! Good luck. Can't wait to see a picture!
