Run around

I apologize for the radio silence this past week...and I'm actually just jumping on to say it's not going to get any better.

November/December are busy busy busy months for me. Between the holidays and Thatboy's birthday I barely have a moment to sit down - and I think I'm out of town more than I'm in town. That means my cooking is usually me trying to use leftovers and keep the fridge empty. There's nothing worse than rotting food! This means there's not a lot to blog about when there is time to blog.

And in about 20 minutes I'm heading to pick Thatboy up from his office and head to the airport so we can take our FABULOUS vacation. I'm oh so excited. Which means you can expect a lot more of nothing over the next week. I think there'll be a return to normalcy sometime next week....for a little bit, until we're off on our Christmas trip!

Until then I'll leave you with a pictorial of what I've been up to:

Corned beef hash with roasted zucchini and red potatoes

Chicken baked in wine (this is a good one because it lasts us a full week!)

And then of course there are the cupcakes:
Candy Corn! (chocolate with vanilla frosting)

The Octopi (Chocolate with vanilla frosting)

Pink Lemonade


Turkeys! (Vanilla with chocolate buttercream frosting)

Not pictured: Margarita cupcakes and Chocolate chip cupcakes with chocolate glaze!
