BLTs, al fresco, burgers and more!

***Last chance to enter my Giada de Laurentiis GIVEAWAY! Winner will be announced tomorrow morning***

So, I thought I'd pop in quick to show some of my eats over the last few days. Between a garage sale, the husband's long work hours, and things around the house, our eats have been a little random, but good!

Let me start with the best damn BLT this side of the Mississippi, from the Java Creek Cafe. My sister picked these up for us, and let me just say, I will always put guacamole on my BLT's from here on out. Why didn't I think of this?


We also tried for the first time, al fresco sausages, buffalo style to be exact. Yum! We love grilling brats, so this was a nice, healthier alternative. I've also been eyeing their spinach/feta combo. Has anyone else tried these?


Last night's dinner were our bleu cheese and mushroom turkey burgers, on a sandwich thin (on sale for $1.88 at the local Hy-Vees!), 4 cheese baked macaroni (recipe to come!) and fresh strawberries.


Which upon discovery this morning were completely gone, except for one. This always happens, if my husband really likes something, it's game on, and I'm usually left one with measly little piece, and in this case one pitiful (yet juicy) strawberry.

Stay tuned this week for:
  • 4 Cheese Baked Macaroni
  • Garlic Cheese Toasts
  • Tips on healthy snack prep
  • Apple Taffy Pizza

Enjoy your Sunday night folks! So much to watch tonight....finales of Survivor, Desperate Housewives and Brothers & Sisters...what is a girl to do?
