Recipe: Steak Au Poivre

We went out for dinner on Saturday night as our actual Valentine’s date, but I thought that Monday’s dinner deserved to be a little special because it was the actual holiday.  NavyGuy and I tried a little fancier meal. Steak Au Poivre from Better Homes and Gardens online. While I prepped the salad and bread, […]

Recipe: “Easy” Shrimp Pasta

So, this recipe that I tried Monday night is not a keeper.  At least not for us.  Neither NavyGuy nor I were overly impressed, and since NavyGuy requested a sandwich for his lunch on Tuesday, I knew that meant he didn’t want the leftovers.  But, I’ll post it anyway, because it is certainly possible that […]

Saturday Morning

Much as it pains me to admit this, there are in fact, things that NavyGuy does better than I. I know.  Shocking. My attempt at making pancakes this morning reminded me of this: Not so pretty.  NavyGuy is our family pancake maker.  He has a whole process that involves more bowls, utensils, and kitchen appliances […]
