Day Six

After an eventful morning/afternoon, my tummy finally decided to calm down. I was rather hungry, so I decided to make some guacamole to go with some banana chips from Trader Joe's. It was delicious!

(sorry for the weird camera angle)

While getting dinner ready, I decided to throw some apple slices in the oven to try a new recipe. Pretty simple: core and slice an apple, sprinkle with cinnamon, and bake. Here is what they looked like going in:

Unfortunately, there is a learning curve with this recipe, so this tiny plate of apple chips was all that could be redeemed from my 5 apples:

I wrote down some things I will do differently next time, like a lower temp, parchment paper, and shorter baking time. The ones that were salvaged had an almost fruit roll-up texture, which I kinda liked. I definitely like them better a little chewy instead of crisp.

Then came dinner - GLORIOUS dinner! Jason and I had been looking forward to steaks all week, and they were worth it. We sauteed up some yellow squash, zucchini, and onions to go with it. Jason also had mashed potatoes from earlier in the week, but obviously I opted out of those. :)

In other news, Eden decided Harry needed a hairbow like she had in her hair, so while my back was turned, our poor little boy was subjected to this:

Poor little guy. Oh well, I guess that is what happens when you have an older sister who just wants you to play with her! :D

Tonight Jason is working so I am excited to do a little more experimenting in the kitchen - pancakes! I will post all the details tomorrow (or maybe Monday, since Sunday is always super busy for us). Happy weekend!


  1. What a YUMMY day!! You're steaks look delicious!! And I think I'm going to have to go make guac now. :)

    That pic of Harry is HILARIOUS! haha!


  2. Hahahaha!!! Poor Harry!!! That is TOO funny!

    And, yeah, when baking parchment paper is ALWAYS a good idea. You could also buy a silicon mat to put on your cookie sheets if you plan on doing those often. They're pretty cheap. =)

  3. Those veggies look fantastic! What did you season them with?

  4. Marie, I think all I did was salt and pepper and olive oil - not much!
