Raving Rabbids cake

I can't believe I forgot to post this. Cake #1. I got this pan from wallyworld after Easter for $1.50 and just knew exactly what I would do with it. Given my son's obsession with these crazy rabbids, I made him a cake. I decorated it my Wilton class. Lesson #1: I hate box cake, but it looked cute!


In my house I make baked ziti with homemade sauce and organic whole milk ricotta, kids don't eat. However, we all love salmon and I think this is the best recipe I have made with that o-so-healthy fish. I grilled most of the meal. I like to boil cubed potatoes for 5 minutes or so, then throw them in a foil packet with butter, fresh rosemary, sea salt and garlic powder and cook them until they are slightly charred. Yum! I put the salmon on a throwaway baking sheet, sprinkled it with a McCormack's seasoning something to the tune of lemon garlic? Anyway, it's by the Montreal seasoning. I grilled it for about, and I use that loosely, 15 mins. I topped it off with Greek yogurt mixed with fresh dill, a sprinkle of lemon juice and garlic powder. I nuked some frozen veggies on the side, too. It was great being able to use the herbs from my garden. I can't wait to use the vegetables now!

Today I am once again trying to use potatoes from the 10 lb. bag I bought last week. So I fried some bacon =) since everything's better with bacon. I boiled 4 potatoes in the meantime cut in small chunks. I took the bacon out and poured out the grease. I stir fried a red pepper and the potatoes in the grease coated pan. I also sprinkled them with onion powder. After about 10 mins. I cracked 6 eggs in random places, put the crumbled bacon, tomatoes and swiss cheese on them. I covered them and cooked them for like 8 mins. I served this over steamed spinach. Yum!

Hi again!

Man, I hate when I forget my password and am too lazy to go thru the rigmarole to reset it. Well, since my last post there's been a lot. I went to Belize and ate a lot of really good food. Awesome seafood! Yum! Today I made pasta with Gorgonzola cheese sauce, shrimp and spinach. All four food groups in one dish. I let the kids eat theirs with butter and cheese. Yesterday I grilled. I marinated chicken in Italian dressing, and asparagus in balsamic vinegar, olive oil and Italian spices. I threw that, as well as potatoes with butter, rosemary, sea salt and garlic powder on the barbie and it was awesome, at least for me. I sure love to grill! It's my time of year now. Woohoo! Easter dinner was enjoyed by my husband, me not so much. It was a rib roast. Eh. There's more but I can't remember that far back lol. Must not have been that memorable.
