Cutie Apron

My sweet daughter was invited to a "Pinkalicious" book club party. They were going to read the book and then make cup cakes. Soooooo being the OCD crafty camper that I am, I just had to make her a new apron to wear for the event.
I have been wanting to make her a new apron using this Michael Miller fabric that I bought on my "Mommy Vacation to Kansas" and so I knew this was the perfect time to make it. I used McCall's Fashion Accessories pattern M5997 to make the apron.
I think it turned out sooooo cute. I added some vintage red buttons from my Grandmothers button jar that I have had forever. It is soooo sweet and my little one just loves it. I have enough fabric left over to make a chef hat for her and maybe even something for me!!! I LOVE being crafty!!!!

Mushroom and Red Wine Cube Steak

Cube Steak is such an inexpensive alternative to steaks right now. So I decided to try a new recipe and went to Rachel Ray's website and found a yummy one!!! You can find the full recipe here. I made a few changes to the recipe for my non-alcoholoic version. Instead of using beef stock and red wine I used beef broth and balsamic vinegar. (I used a little more beef broth and balsamic vinegar to taste) It turned out sooooooo good!!! Even my kidos liked it!!!
