Last night was Mexican night. Yay! I love making fajitas, and tacos and salsa and rice and all that good stuff. It's so satisfying. Although, I really would have enjoyed a margarita. Oh well. Anyway, I found a new salsa verde recipe in Details magazine of all places. It was really good, and really spicy. But it was just what the smokey shredded beef tacos I make need. It was so good. I even went all out and made these delicious fudgy brownies in a skillet for dessert, which I ate right out of the oven with vanilla ice cream of course.

Making the salsa.

The finished product. Sooo yummy!

Broken Glass

So a few weekends ago Stephen and I were visiting the Herman clan in Kentucky. We reluctantly drove home on Sunday night arriving home at 11 p.m. to find that our kitchen cabinet with all of our bar stuff and wine glasses had fallen off the wall. Glass was everywhere. Every single beer mug, wine glass, pilsner glass, martini glass, decanter, etc. that was own was broken. While I would rather come home to this than a giant flood in our apartment, it was still very frustrating. The good news is all of this stuff can be replaced. The better news is we have awesome landlords who wrote us a check for everything that was broken and then some without even batting an eye. The best news is last weekend we went to Crate and Barrel for a little shopping spree.

After we had that big flood last winter and everything got fixed up we came home from a hockey game to find water on our kitchen floor. It was raining really hard and there was a weird thing happening on the roof and water was coming down the brick wall behind that cabinet. They fixed it, but after time the back of this cabinet got moldy and rotted away.

A big mess.

All cleaned up.

A Baby Girl

So Stephen and I had an ultrasound yesterday and found out we are having a baby girl! We are very excited, to say the least. The doc said everything looks perfect. She weighs 9 oz. so far. I get to go back in two weeks for another one because she would not cooperate for some parts of the exam, so hopefully she'll be in a better position and be a little bigger so they can get what they need. Here are some of the pics from the ultrasound.

Sky Blue Sky

A high of 48˚ today in Port Huron. Stephen and I went over to the Lake Huron to check out all the ice. I love our lakes. Totally worth living in Michigan to be able to enjoy them. There is also a huge ice bridge out there that you can't see in any of these pictures. The Coast Guard is concerned that with the warmer weather it's going to cause some big problems in the river. You can read about that here if you're interested.

Anyway, the ice out there is pretty cool. And the sky was so blue today! Love days like today.
You can see more pictures of the ice here.
