Week in Review 5/28/11

My second week in review, and I think I am hooked!  I love the idea of sharing ideas from other sites that I have bookmarked and am excited to try.  There are SO many bloggers out there, it is great to get introduced to new ones all the time.  I am going to have to start running more with all the good ideas I see out there!  Good thing I am thinking about training for another 1/2 marathon. 

We went out to dinner last night to celebrate my son finishing Kindergarten and doing such a good job.  He got this balloon and the restaurant.  Is this not the coolest balloon EVER!  And we didn't even go to a kids restaurant!  We went to the only place in town that we could get Fish and Chips from the kids menu!

So here is what I have been up to this week! 
Salsa - A great canned tomato recipe for when fresh tomatoes aren't in season yet.
Baked Wontons - Crispy, yummy healthy wontons!
Guacamole - My standard go to recipe.
Strawberry Rhubarb Muffins - Great combination of fruit for a perfect spring muffin.
Caramel Layer Bars - Chocolate brownie with a layer of gooey caramel.
Chicken Skewers with Avocado Sauce - Grilled chicken with a cool avocado dipping sauce.

Recipes I have bookmarked, and can't wait to try!
Cinnamon Roll Muffins from The Baker Chick - these are just an amazing idea!
Soft Caramel Popcorn from In Katrina's Kitchen - this is just impressive!
Grilled Pork Tenderloin from Diethood - I love pork tenderloin, and the marinade here sounds wonderful!
Blueberry Buckle from Tracey's Culinary Adventures - my son loves blueberry muffins, this look like a great alternative!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!  Anyone have any great plans?  What are you making?  Mine are still a little up in the air - Going to a 3 year old's birthday party this afternoon though!

As soon as I get paper bags, I am trying your popcorn thing out! My son LOVES popcorn, so it will be a great snack this summer!

That IS a cool balloon. No wonder he is so happy. Great round-up of recipes and hope you're having a great weekend.

GREAT balloon! My kids went with Daddy a week ago to IHOP for breakfast, and got something very similar. Amazing what folks can do with latex and a little hot air!

What a cutie! That balloon creation is wonderful. How fun for him to get that at a special dinner just for him!

Thanks for popping by to comment on my ramped-up carbonara! I'm your newest follower, BTW. I'm not doing much today...other than relaxing. I'm not even cooking anything fancy -- husband requested chili dogs for dinner!
