Week in Review 10/8/11

It has been a great week!  My 6 year old and I survived our first week alone, and it went well!  I actually cooked every night (I was worried about cooking for just the 2 of us), and we have had fun.  I am the one that is usually short on patience in our house, but that didn't happen this week.  We even went to a neighbors house and played and had a fire Friday night. Now we will just see how the weekend goes.  I have a couple playdates lined up, and we have to get the house clean for a showing on Sunday, so I think it will be busy.

The blog has been on fire this week (relatively speaking for me), which is very exciting!  Don't forget to check out the Foodbuzz awards and vote for your favorites.  Icon is to your right.  I am nominated for Best New Blog, hint hint :)

Here is what I was up to this week:
Chicken in a French Pan Sauce and Polenta Fry Fail - Chicken Breasts in a quick and easy french pan sauce.  Great for weeknight dinners. 
Soft Pretzel Bites - Homemade soft pretzels in little bite sized portions
Cheddar Bacon Ale Dip - Cheese, Bacon and Beer!  Great dip for with soft pretzels.
Pumpkin Spice Hot Apple Cider - Hot Apple Cider with Pumpkin Spiced Syrup topped with Whipped Cream
Thanks and More - Get to Know Me, Blog Awards, My Favorites, and More

Here is what I bookmarked of yours this week:
Cheddar Bay Biscuits by Eat. Drink. Love - who doesn't love Red Lobster biscuits!  Need to make these soon!
Chocolate Malted Cupcakes by Tracey's Culinary Adventures - Just Adorable, and I love Whoppers!
Brookies with Oreo's and Caramel by That Skinny Chick Can Bake - boy can Liz bake, just another amazing dessert from her kitchen!
Pesto Burgers by The Spiffy Cookie - Great idea to put pesto in the meat!  Going to have to try this next time I grill!
Buffalo Chicken Calzone by Baking Jenn - what  a fun idea for a calzone!  Love just about anything with buffalo chicken!

Hope you all have a great weekend!
