Hey Good Looking....Whatcha Got Cooking.....

Had Midwife appt today! All was well! Baby sounded great and ...well ...since there really isn't much to the appt...nothing new to report! Weight gain total 10lbs! I snuck a peek in my chart and funny enough I weigh the exact same thing at 18 weeks as I did with Lily!


Last night's meal was a total disaster!
This whole week I'm using my Gooseberry Patch cookbook. I only have 2 so far, but I'd kill for more of their books! I thought I'd shoot for the Salisbury Steak and fried cauliflower. The cauliflower wasn't the problem..in fact they were soooo darn tasty I couldn't stop eating them....and we dipped them in ranch! I wish I had more for today!!! The salisbury steak didn't form into patties and when I went to flip them they fell apart. (That's what I get for not correctly doubling a recipe and using too small of a pan) So needless to say we had Goulash! It tasted pretty good and the kids went in for 2nd's (even Mini Me)!

Tonight on the menu (I've made it before and know it will turn out perfectly)is one of their recipes for French Dip w/au jus. There really isn't much to it and it sits in the slow cooker for 10 hrs. How easy is that?

Dessert is also cooked in a crock pot!
Fudgy Pudding Cake.
I know it sounds weird to bake a cake in a crock pot, but until you try it you'll never know. I've made this once before and it is OUT OF THIS WORLD. Tastes sort of like a molten chocolate cake!

Add just 7 quick ingredients for 4 hrs and Boom my whole day of cooking was made easy!!!

(sorry for the poor quality...I was lazy)

I'm intrigued about the cauliflower! We made a baked/swiss cheese cauliflower dish that is really good, but I've never had it fried.
LOVE crockpot cake, it is soooooo good!
