Iron Chef???

Last night after dinner I was looking up recipes for sticky buns because we were given a bunch of pecans from Andrew's grandfather and that sounded like a yummy way to use them. Many of the recipes had mixed reviews and lots of them took much more time than I was willing to invest. Andrew kept saying he could just make them from scratch without a recipe, I was skeptical but he said if you add enough cinnamon and brown sugar you can't go wrong.

So while I kept looking up recipes Andrew headed into the kitchen to get started. He toasted the pecans and added flour and eggs and margarine. He kept narrating as if he were on a cooking show, "we'll just add another 1/4 cup of flour so we get that nice doughy consistency." After making a few suggestions and being assigned to make the glaze I was given the title of the "Trusty Assistant."

Andrew was so cute and so excited about making the treat, and I must admit except for the bread being a little thick Andrew's sticky bun creation was pretty tasty.

While cleaning up Andrew said he should be on Iron Chef, now I have never seen the show but I am pretty sure he has a little way to go before he is ready for that.

July Adventures!

For the 4th of July, well actually the 5th we made homemade ice cream. I hope the next recipe we try turns out way better though because I was not a fan of this one. Andrew made us yummy turkey clubs because his pregnant wife craves them quite frequently. I have to include the picture because he for some reason likes to document meals. He's cute!!

Hobo dinners, again with the documenting meals, he asked me to take this pic. They were way yummy though, he did a great job!

Andrew LOVES camping, he seriously gets so excited about any type of camping trip! Last month we headed way beyond the crowded Yankee Meadows to a little camping spot way up in the mountain. We planned to hike a little but it started raining way hard before we had the chance to get started, it was still great to be together and to see Andrew so happy!


I know I shouldn't complain about free couches for my wonderful sister and her new husband but I think this is total proof that some people should not own pets... or furniture for that matter. Luckily the couches have been cleaned twice and smell a lot better. Someone owes us dinner!

Sick I know!!

June Fun

Lindsay and Carson's wedding!

Fun at Left Hand!

Tori and Adam's wedding!! For some reason Andrew took lots of video of Tori and Adam on the wedding day but no pictures of the couple.
