Grilled Steak with Mushroom Wine Sauce and Crab Stuffed Potatoes

Treated the family to the typical home cooked meal, but this time I took pictures to share my "recipes" with you guys!
The pictures will show you the ingredients.

Grilled Steak:
Just so you know,  I buy my thyme fresh and leave it in a dish on the counter to dry.
Also at the end added some dried parsley.
I usually don't buy steak sauce but because all my seasonings are still being shipped from Dubai I bought a local sauce.
Instead, or in addition to a steak sauce you can use soy sauce, worcestershire sauce, or goya marinade.
I marinated the steak for about 6 hours in the fridge then Hubby grilled it to medium rare perfection!



Twice Baked Crab Potatoes:
I always feel like potatoes take forever to bake so I always bake them long before I am ready to prepare dinner.
Bake until soft then leave to cool.
Cut around the top of the potatoes as you will see in the pictures and carefully use a spoon to scoop out the inside.
Mix the potatoes with butter, milk, salt, sour cream(if you have it), crab and cheese.  (I normally break the crab up into pieces first.
Mix it all together then stuff it back into the potato skin, sprinkle a little cheese on top and put back in the oven to reheat.  Done!




Mushroom Wine Sauce:

Put a stick of butter in a pan on medium heat.
Once it has melted add all but water and flour.
Sautee, add a little red wine then add some flour for thickening.
When it gets really thick add water slowly and keep stirring.  Do this until it has a nice creamy consistency. It's that simple and so yummy!



The Final Result:

Beautiful Baby Shower

This past weekend was our baby shower!!  We decided to do it a bit early because I am one of those over-organized, over-prepared types.  It was hosted by my best friend Kindle and my sister Bianca.

I told Kindle I wanted a slight winter wonderland pink theme since it is so close to Christmas and this is what I walked in to!
It was absolutely beautiful, and we were joined by all our best family and friends, we appreciate everyone that made this such a special day for us.


 This game was to guess how big I was and believe it or not the winner was Ethan!!
He definitely knows his Mummy!
 The chocolate diaper game. (It was Johns first shower, he must've thought we were all crazy).
 Getting ready for presents!! (The boys got to open them all).
 Kindle surprised the boys with a gift each.
It was a shirt with their picture saying "I'm the biggest Brother" and "I'm the big Brother" for the hospital.
Most thoughtful thing ever!!!
I wish I could relive this day over and ov…

We Are Expecting!!!

John, myself and the boys are excited to announce that we are going to have a new addition to the family!!!!!  Excited, overjoyed, elated are a few of the words to describe how we all feel right now.
After having Ethan I truly thought I was never going to have another baby, not because I did not want one (because I did) but because, let's just say circumstances were less than ideal at the time.
John definitely did not expect to ever be...expecting... again either! But I guess we both never expected to find each other. =) This is something we have talked about since day 1, and the time is finally here and now!
First things first... Need that cocoa butter to keep everything in check!!
Next, baby naming, it takes me forever to find a name I like, so the earlier start we get, the better!!


I have lost 2 pounds but my tummy is obviously growing!!

I put on 40pounds each pregnancy, believe it or not, so I'm ready!

Thanx to Mummy and Daddy for good, genes, I always pop right back to …

Mr. and Mrs. John Benham!!!

This is the moment we have both been waiting for for years!
It was perfection.
Nothing short of magical.

We had quite a bit of time after getting ready, there were so many emotions, so happy I laughed, so happy I cried.

I love these photos and am so happy that every moment was captured.  Can't wait to see the professional ones!



                                Waiting for the go ahead
                                        It's time!!
                             Everyone ready to come down

With this ring...
You may kiss your bride!

Ethan is a true romantic.  Whenever we watch movies with happy couples he always says that they are me and John.  For years he has been talking about us getting married. After the ceremony when we came in he was crying.   He said he tried to hold it in as long as possible...                                            Whispering sweet nothings
