Week in Review 6/25/11

It has been a great week!  I made the Top 9 with my Strawberry Milkshakes for the first time!  Foodgawker accepted my Strawberry Muffins!  I joined Twitter!  Big week!

Yesterday we took our 6 year old to see Cars 2.  He was completely obsessed with the first one for almost 3 years.  When you are that young, 3 years is a significant part of your life.  So opening day, we went all out.  We saw it in 3D, and we got the souvenir popcorn, drink, and character silly straw.  He LOVED it!  He is easily entertained, I mean he is 6.  But recently we saw Megamind, and when that was over, he said he never wanted to watch that again.  So he does have some standards! 

I have plenty more strawberry recipes coming your way next week.  But I will break it up a bit - I have so much stuff I want to share!

Don't forget to enter my Giveaway!  You have a chance to win 2 pounds of nuts/dried fruit!

Here is what I was up to this week:
Five Spice Pork Lo Mein - a super flavorful, quick and easy stir fry
Chocolate Peanut Butter Cream Pie - a cream pie with layers of chocolate and peanut butter - so good!
Strawberry Milkshakes - strawberries and ice cream....enough said
Strawberry Muffins - great muffins, with a hint of cinnamon
Strawberry Popsicles - Cool, refreshing, and fruity

Here is what you were up to that caught my eye:
Milky Way Pots de Creme by Tasty Trials - these just sound amazing.  I love Milky Way
Buffalo Boneless Chicken Wings by Bake Your Day - I absolutely love Buffalo chicken, and a healthy version?!
Creamy Basil Pasta Salad by The Country Cook - this is a great idea for any summer get together
White Chocolate Vanilla Bean Blondies by More Than A Mount Full - I really need to find a reason to make these, they sound completely sinful!
Soy Lime Marinade by Kitchen Confidante - love these flavors for summer grilling!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Erin! Congrats on your top 9! If I remember correctly I think you had another Top9 yesterday. I'm so happy for you!!! We are planning to take take my my son (5) and daughter (3) to see Cars 2 too. He absolutely loves Cars and I hope he'll enjoy it. I heard this one is more for older kids - did you think so too? I just can't wait to see how Japan is portrayed. Heehee. :-)
