Besides being pregnant I have been up to many random things this month so far. I thought I would fill you in on the fun things going on up in the French household.
the best (and easiest) dinner night EVER! We recently had a taco night and I loved every second of it…as you will see by my super dorky picture below…
Yeah we actually do have this festive hat just sitting around our house…you never know when you might have a taco night?!?!
Needless to say since I could barely even get the husband to take this picture, he would NOT let me take one of him in the hat.
At any rate, below are several pictures of the deliciousness of that night. Since I don’t eat meat we had to cook up two different pans of goodies:
Top: Joe’s turkey burger and refried beans mixture.
Bottom: My Quorn brand meatless crumbles with taco seasoning…actually really good!
The shells…heated to perfection in the oven, and flat bottomed…guys these are waaaaayyy better then the old ones with the bottom that came to a point and left no room for the stuffing's. Try them!!
The rest of the good stuff:
Mexican style cheese
My salsa/ranch dip (sour cream, dry ranch dip packet, and salsa) SO GOOD
And finally the finished products:
Joe’s… (notice the flat bottom, so smart!)
I love taco night, and writing this post makes me want to have another one really soon!
Besides taco night we also celebrated the 4th of July.
Joe and several of his friends have sort of made it a tradition to watch the hot dog eating contest…so, naturally, I got the idea that we should have people over to watch this and have a hot dog bar set up too. Joe liked the idea and so that is what we did. Although we ate our hotdogs before watching the contest…thankfully because that contest is really disturbing to watch and pretty gross! 69 hotdogs and buns eaten in 10 minutes, blah!!!!!
Pretty good spread:
Brett and Alison brought over a really delicious southwestern pasta salad
Doritos (duh, they are so good)
coney sauce was over on the stove…regular and vegetarian
Nathan’s hotdogs, and the two lone veggie dogs for me.
I also made a very festive dessert:
Unfortunately I didn’t remember to take a picture until after I started serving it…but you get the point.
Somehow this post has been all about food…guess I must be hungry!
I will leave you with some lovely photos that came from me being bored on the 4th after everyone left…and Joe was taking a nap so I had no one to talk to. Obviously at times like that you take pictures of yourself…and your cats…obviously.
Is it wrong I really want to paint her nails?
And then there is me and my obnoxious 4th of July nails and makeup…
So there you have it…the things i have been doing this month other than being pregnant.
