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…

Star Wars Birthday Party

It's that time of year for the boys double birthday party!!
Since I... I mean they are so into star wars that was the obvious choice of a party theme.

It was so cute at the end of the party after the boys opened all their gifts and John says, "Well, what did Mummy and I get you?"  They both shrugged.  I said, "We got you this beautiful party, and that is your gift."
They both hugged us and said thank you without even complaining that we didn't buy them anything, such gracious boys!
Then John brought out their bikes and they went crazy!! It was the cutest thing.

Happy Birthday to our wonderful boys, Happy 7th and 9th Birthday Ethan and Kaiden!

Welcoming Spring

Going from living in Jamaica where Spring is Sun and sand, to Georgia where spring is pollen, to Dubai where it is sun and sand to Illinois.
Let's just say I was not expecting a massive snow storm!
I have never experienced snow like this in my life!
Amazing what a difference 9am to noon can make!
This is how they do spring here it seems!

We had so much fun!
Lots of games with the kids, just dance 3, wii golf etc.

Of course John took the boys out to make a snowman and snowball fights and even gave them a big job to make a little money.
I don't know how they handle the cold so well, it truly amazes me how long they can stay out there and be completely okay.
I of course stayed inside, I do not like the cold, not one bit.  I do enjoy watching the snow from the windows though, it is so beautiful.
I even fell asleep on the carpet in front of the fireplace!

We did have a small mishap.  Kaiden decided he wanted to warm up his pillow pet and it melted on the glass on the fireplace!
