Hiatus & Shepard's Pie...


Hi all! Sorry for the mini hiatus that's been going on at my blog recently... I've been running around like a mad woman trying to squeeze as much as is humanly possible into my last days in the U.S.A.

That's right kids... I officially have a mere 2 days left before I join the hubs and put into practice all of the good house wife skills I've practicing over here ;) I am too excited for words to even describe and although I have planned it all out carefully and have been preparing for this moment for the past 4 months (not to mention the past 5 yrs!), I still feel like I'm not ready... but it's now or now... time to leap and become a full blown wife!!!!

I'll try my best to keep you guys up to date and promise not to abandon the blog, but please excuse me if I disappear for a couple of days while I'll be doing nothing but smooching Ben... please excuse his disappearance as well!

Moving on the shepard's pie part of this... I had a reunion with an old family friend the other night and dazzled her with my amazing cooking skills... I'm really getting to be quite good at this! In honor of my new heritage, I decide to make a shepard's pie with a side of grilled broccoli... all from my favorite cook book!!!
spice it up!!!
<3 the color & texture contrast!!!

gotta have the tracks...
  For the grilled broccoli I actually improvised a few things and it turned out delicious! Instead of grilling, I just lightly seared them in a frying pan due to my lack of a grill... if you want to know what other tweaks I made, just let me know and I'd be happy to share my secrets with you.
my version...
The night was so much fun and we had soooo much to catch up on!!! And another plus, I got to meet her adorable daughter Sophia that was non stop smiles =)

What have you guys been up to??? I know it's been awhile so catch me up... I'd love to know!!!
