When I saw this recipe in the February/March 2011 Cook's Country I knew I had to make it. My husband enjoys mint chocolate chip ice cream so I thought this cake would be perfect for our anniversary. Bob had planned to take me out to dinner yesterday so I made it today.

Sew Homegrown Strawberry-shortclip. They turned out berry cute. I am hoping to do some sewing and organizing in my "free" time this week (the bookshelf in the background needs attention). We also need to get back to working on the laundry room. Since today is my anniversary (15 years!!!) I think we're going out to dinner instead of working on our house project.

Italian Sausage Rigatoni. We started the evening with some Johnsonville Snack Sausage and Spicy Sausage Queso. I was too busy talking and cutting cake to take pictures of our yummy desserts.

The dh has been working to upgrade the software on our household computers this week. I'm thrilled I'll be able to use the recipe software he bought me a couple of years ago for my birthday. Unfortunately, I won't be able to paint the laundry room this weekend. Here's the blue I've chosen. The green is for the bathroom.

I received this as a Christmas present and didn't know anything about it (I'm out of touch with what book clubs were reading last year). I put it on my list to read in February and I actually finished this a couple of weeks ago (amazing considering it is 444 pages). I found myself hoping I'd be stuck in traffic or have to wait for dance class to finish so I could read a few more pages. There were a few things I didn't appreciate about this novel and therefore will not allow my daughter (12) to read it. I was disappointed in the ending, but this book made me laugh out loud and cry. It is fiction and therefore the things I do not like about this book are merely my opinion. There are thousands of reviews on Amazon and I can agree with both the favorable and the negative.
