Today we spent the afternoon watching B-Dude graduate from University. More to come on that in the coming days. We also went out for dinner.
This is where I realized I could whip up a better steak than Applebee’s any day of the week. And I’ll be honest, I could feed 12-16 people on what it cost us for 4 people there. Geez, seriously they need to up their steak game. Was okay, but nothing to write home about. But we had fun so it’s all good. Nothing like a day with the family. I am off now to watch a movie with everyone. Rarely does it happen that all 4 of us can spend a whole day together so going to take advantage of it and take the rest of the day off blogging. I’ll be back tomorrow with a doozy of a recipe for you all!
Please welcome this week’s recap of what I’ve been cooking up in the asylum. Hope you’ve enjoyed the past week as much as my bellah has! Also you’ll get the chance to see what I’ve bookmarked this week. It’s been a great week on the blogosphere. So sit back, kick off your shoes and enjoy!

LUNATIC’S PICK FOR OUTSTANDING RECIPE:
This week is a party post that caught my eye. Those who know me well know that I have a horse. She’s pictured on the blog a couple of times and in my profile photo. So when I saw this Girly and Pink Vintage Pony Party I just about lost my marbles. It’s so cute and so adorable that I want to be 8 years old again so someone can throw it for me. It’s the coolest little party you could throw for us pony lovers. So glad I came across it.
LUNATIC WILL BE MAKING AS SOON AS SHE GOES TO THE STORE:
Bakingdom- Cherry Limeade
Hopefully tons of replacement photos for all the pics I lost in the horrible Google Plus incident!
A finale to Fun with Jars as Farm Fresh Fridays takes its place for the summer!
A surprise personal post, with some pics!
Father’s Day brings a recipe I made for my dad that to date I’ve never shared on the blog. It’s pretty spectacular!
Ice Cream of course!
Lunatic Loves will be moving to Tuesdays next week. I don’t care for it being so close to Meatless Mondays. I think having a gap between that and the grill recipes that include meat would be the appropriate thing to do. So Give a Girl a Grill will move to Thursdays next week!
Another edition of Burning Down The Kitchen. Hint- it’s someone you all know and love!
A long overdue giveaway winner!
Toodles and smoochies! xx
