Ahh, I'm almost a full week behind!
Our Halloween was actually pretty low key because we were (I was) a little crazy at the football game the night before. We had our Halloween movie night and carved pumpkins and roasted seeds and made candy apples. But I forgot to take pictures of ALL OF IT! Well, actually I was just too busy enjoying having Matt back for the night I didn't even think to pick up my camera. It seemed like he'd been working so much lately.
But I do have SOME pictures. We were Monsters for Halloween, as in the energy drink. Anyone who knows Matt personally knows he is OBSESSED with energy drinks, and especially Monsters. It was fun and slightly ridiculous.
We went to a small party and also trick or treated with our favorite little buddy, who was dressed as a dragon!
Cutest little dragon in the world right? The low key holiday was actually nice because we have been on the go for the past two months and it doesn't look like we'll be slowing down anytime in 2010!
I made these owl cookies for the party we went to, so adorable right? I saw a picture of similar cookies with bats but couldn't find the recipe. So I used this recipe for the cookies, and made a ganache filling out of 9 oz bittersweet chocolate and a cup of heavy cream.
I've also made these recipes which were all SO DELICIOUS but I wasn't able to take pictures of them for one reason or another.
PW's Spinach Salad (Even though it's a salad, this was our "bad" meal of the week.. you literally pour bacon grease dressing onto the salad. So good but so bad.)
Flank Steak with Mushroom Sauce (Seriously one of the tastiest meals I've ever made, this will be a regular at our house and if you are a mushroom lover I guarantee if you try this it will be a regular at your house too - also this is a new favorite food blog, definitely check it out.)
P.S. - I had every intention of taking pictures of the apple turnovers and making it my fifth fall baking post the day after I made them because they looked so pretty but Matt literally took the entire plate to work that day, not even kidding.
We had a ton of plans this weekend but Matt is doing a million things for work right now and he has duty tomorrow - meaning he has to go in at 8 am and stay overnight since the students are never left unattended. Even though he's working a lot he's working so hard and I'm so proud of him. I know his hard work will be recognized again this cycle! So it will be another low key night for us! Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
