Mike still did some cooking, but kept it a little easier. Saturday night he made steak sliders with grilled onions. He used a rub spice that he made a little bit ago. To go with them he also made sweet potato fries. They weren't really crispy like chips, but they were tasty. The spice mix was yummy a bit sweet and spicy.
We ordered pizza Sunday night, but Monday he cooked up pork tenderloin tacos in the crock pot and made a mango pico de gallo. The sauce for the pork included cinnamon sticks. It added a bit of a sweet flavor to complement a mildly spicy sauce with adobo chile sauce. The mango salsa is about medium hot. I love the pico type of salsas, I could eat them with a spoon.
With Mike recovering from surgery, I am on the hook for the meals for the next several days. So we'll see what kind of adventures I come up with next week.
I decided to do some monthly layouts for 2010, Project 12 style. I just got started this past week. I made up some picture collages in PSE with my favorite pictures from the month done through June. I had them printed up at Costco in 8x12 and 8x8 sizes. I ended up doing the collages myself. I looked all over for templates, but didn't like what I found. Costco has a collage tool, but I wanted more control. It took a bit longer, but as I worked through each month, I got better at it and was happy with the results.
I finally got to use my Studio Calico month stamps. I made the flower with Studio Calico Fabrips.
Hope you have a great Wednesday!
