Finally some pictures!

As a reminder...we catered for the first time a few weeks ago. Then we did some traveling (Madison, WI & Warren Dunes). Both adventures were quite fun & successful! :)

In order to share the menu with the guests, we created a QR code that they could scan with their phones (we are going to be technology coaches after all!). Abby then placed copies in creative places around the house ;)

Thanks to our awesome sister, assistant and photographer (Abby), we have some food photos to share with you!

Fourth Course:

Maybe catering will become our summer job ;) Bon appetit!

A summer of traveling!

We're leaving for Madison tomorrow so we won't have time to upload our pictures from the catering job until next week :(

But in the meantime...check out the brand new program from my beautiful friend Katie over at Rooted Wellbeing!

Long post!

Dang it's been a long time! A lot of exciting things have happened to us since Thanksgiving...we've still been cooking and we started a new blog. We're home in MI for the summer and we are now officially Michigan residents again...until we move to Kuwait in August :) Exciting things happening in our lives!

On the food front...we'll be doing our first catering job tomorrow! Jeff's mom is the manager of a group of hospitalists. Tomorrow night they are having a going away party for one of the doctors and after last year's success, we've been asked to cater. Except this time we're cooking for 30+ people! We've never done anything like this before and it's been a challenge planning, grocery shopping & starting to prep. To get a sneak peak at what we're preparing...check out our pinterest board! Will post the official menu later tonight/tomorrow :)

à demain!

Pad Thai!

We've been excited about this recipe since it popped up on my google reader from eatliverun! I'm hoping it's as good as I ate in Jackson Hole, WY :)

I haven't taken a bite but Jeff says its amazing!!

p.s. In order to (maybe) blog more often, I'm experiementing with blogging from my iPod touch and the blogger app. The picture isn't awesome, but it's fun to actually be blogging again!

p.s.s. THIS WAS AMAZING!!!! We didn't add the shrimp, but that would probably have made it even more amazing. You could also do chicken. AND you can make it as spicy (or not) as you want!

(Healthy) Football Food

Tonight is the Big Game at the Big House. Our House will be quite tense. Once a year our hearts are on opposite sides of the field. We've both been fans since we were little so tonight someone won't be happy. (If you have been under a rock, tonight is the Notre Dame vs. Michigan game. I <3 Notre Dame and Jeff is a Michigan man.)

One thing we've always been able to agree on is what to eat on football Saturdays. Man Dip has been our go to since some friends introduced it to us. It's 1lb burger, 1lb sausage, a can of Rotel and a brick of Mexican Velveeta. It's become a tradition in our apartment, but this year I just can't bring myself to make it. We've changed our diet significantly and one of the things that I've been enjoying most is experimenting with making healthy versions of food that we would normally eat. When I saw this recipe for Nacho Cheese Sauce, I thought I might just have a winner on my hands. It's flavoring up in the crock-pot right now. I couldn't wait so I grabbed a chip and tried it already. We'll see what Jeff says when he gets home from the cross country meet. Hopefully this will be a tasty, healthy comfort food for us on this stressful day ;)
