I honestly feel like such a boss when I make my own veggie stalk out of what normally would have just been compost!

These beautiful flowers sure will add some brightness to our house this week as I spend my nights prepping for a party of 70 on Saturday! Thank you Flip - you are the best!

Happy Birthday to my partner-in-crime and my other half!  Flip you are such an amazing person, partner, fur-father, and best friend.  I have so much fun with you on a daily basis, and I'm looking forward to having more fun with you as we celebrate your special day. I'm so sincerely proud of everything you've accomplished in this past year and look forward to seeing what the last year of your 20's will bring for you, and us.

29, eh?  I can't believe we're finally the same age ;)

Last night's dinner was #rutabaga noodles with an olive & garlic tomato sauce, roasted cherry tomatoes and then slow cooked steak! 
The method for the steak is so easy: 
1.  Season and bring meat to room temp (20 mins ish)
2. Place in a 250°f oven for 40 mins,  flipping halfway through
3. Let rest 15 mins covered in foil
4. Get a pan super hot with 1 tbsp of EVOO
5. Sear 1 min - 1.5 mins per side (depending on how you like it cooked) 
6. Rest another 5 - 10 mins before cutting. 
I love it because while you still get that incredible kiss of pink throughout the meat itself is warmed through! Definitely a WOW!

Looking at some old photos last night - just in time for me to grab this gem of a shot to post to wish my incredible parents a very Happy 38th Anniversary! Looking forward to watching the two of you grow together even more in your marriage as transition from being only Mum and Dad,  into your new roles as Gramma and Papa too! I'm so incredibly proud of the two of you and am super grateful to have the both of you! Enjoy your day! (Ole!) .

Got to try 'Goulash Soup' tonight - which I found out is different than 'Goulash' which is the more stew-like version! This one had lots of #paprika and was nice and rich! The goal is to try it again in the next few days! .
