Going with a Princess theme for Mom...she loves following the Royals....so I see a sparkly crown along with a "Princess Jacqueline of Cambridge" theme...thinking I'll get a little smile with a bit of eye twinkle from her -- been a very tough year...I am looking forward to that twinkly smile.

 

Dad's sponsoring top quality steak :)

Lots of veggies and a beautiful salad -- Mom's favs.

 

Saw a nice recipe for figs and brie in tortillas on FB....I'll try to make those for starters if time permits.

 

Drive Safe Irish!!!

We were going to have tacos, but I had a rough day so the child had leftovers and I had wine.  Tacos for tomorrow night now.

I'm posting early today, because I have a feeling my day is going to get crazy.  My husband is going to grill some steaks, and I'm going to do baked potatoes, using my spin on this recipe-http://www.food.com/...-potatoes-58121, along with some steamed spinach.

Thai griled beef lettuce wraps. The marinade is brilliant - lots of tamarind, lime, etc. I made Nuoc Cham and will serve with julienned carrots and vermicelli.

The other day I made Caribbean spicy shrimp with pasta. Am loving coking from so many cultures and ethnic groups.

yum

 

Peach Cake turned out great...

 

BRM Vanilla Cake mix

4 Eggs

1/2 cup Oil

4 peaches -- pureed

 

Mix well then I stirred in by hand another two peaches - chopped.

 

Butter/Cream Cheese Frosting -- next time I'll be adding peach puree to the frosting...I ran out of ripe peaches...so total peaches needed would be 8

 

added three drops yellow and one drop red food color to both the cake and frosting to brighten the peach color...but not necessary if you are avoiding food dyes

 

Tonight is either roast chicken or chicken enchiladas...not sure which yet.

Scallion sounds right, 6 to 8 inches, skinny and green with a small white bulb, great in stir fry.

Gamon steak, peas, egg, new potatoes, mushrooms.

At home tonight, but last few days have been dinner on the beach and late nights for kids. Trying for an early night, but it is mighty warm here now....

That peach cake sounds wonderful. I checked and I can totally do BRM vanilla cake mix. There are really good natural alternatives to food dyes if someone really cares what color the cake comes out. I'm sure it would be perfectly delicious no matter what color it is though. :)

 

I've got a sick husband today so I'm not sure what I'm doing for dinner. I may just be worrying about me which will probably turn into a burger and a veggie. I probably sound like a broken record with that, but hey... it's quick and easy beef. Which means quick and easy iron. Maybe if I find my inner spunk I'll work up to a meatloaf. Either way, I will be on the phone with the doctor before I'm supposed to take my afternoon iron pill and with any luck since my infusions are approved I'll not have to take it. Which means I'll be able to enjoy my dinner! :D

Roller Coaster ride of a day today....we say final farewell to a good friend that lost his battle with cancer last week....going to be very hard on hubs and his buds ....

Then I do a quick change into comic con attire and hop the trolley to meet my son.....I have missed the past few years due to poor health .... so I am very excited...if there is wifi at the Convention Cntr I'll likely be online while waiting in lines...otherwise I'll catch you all tomorrow.

Oh dinner will be salmon jerky....z-noodles with cilantro sauce and almonds to munch on as needed.

I've always thought that comic con sounds like a load of fun... or at least used to. Not sure it hasn't outgrown itself. I had pale blue wrapping today after my iron infusion and my husband cracked a joke about how I could just wrap myself in the stuff as a comic con costume with my backpack so I could be Rainbow Dash. Frankly I think its brilliant. :D

 

We ended up spending most of yesterday afternoon in the ER for the hubs. Not a fun day. He is getting to feeling better, but isn't exactly himself yet. Not sure he'll be eating food yet today, so I may just be cracking a can of chicken soup for dinner for him if he feels up to something semi-foodish. That leaves me on my own again, I'm thinking zucchini something and that meatloaf I didn't get to last night because I got all tied up with other matters. (Zucchini "something" usually ends up meaning breaded and fried, which may not be exactly healthy but is delicious beyond words.)

OMG I SAW THAT RECIPE!!! If it wasn't 96 FREAKING DEGREES outside I would have been tempted to run straight to the store for a cake mix. I'm sure my husband will break in later with how I don't have about half of the ingredients blah blah blah, and it'll cost a small fortune for a few cupcakes. (Something about how for the price of the ingredients we could feed a starving child for like 5 years or save the planet or something... but he has to live under the same roof with me, not starving children.) I'm also pretty sure I won't be listening. :lol:

I adore water melon and strawberries again. So good.

 

Spring onion is probably a scallion.
