Macaron Failure

I decided to try making macarons. I haven't ever had one before so I didn't really even know what to compare mine to but I had to try it. I started with this recipe. I started out great...

I should have ground up the almond flour more here...I didn't do that...oops

This is where I should have added the food coloring...I didn't...ooops

I should have boiled the syrup down more...I didn't...ooops ( I threw away this batch of meringue and started over)

I should have used parchment paper...I didn't...ooops

hmmm....I don't think this is how they should look.

I should have beat the egg yolks more...I didn't oops (but even with this being too runny it was SOOO GOOD)

Not the prettiest little cookie but man, they are good! We'll have to try again.

tacos, grapes, and (leftover) risotto

I'd just like to let you know that Hunter ate five tacos. 5!

Filosoof and green salad

I saw this recipe in the Worldwide Ward Cookbook. It sounded intriguing but it was pretty blah. It was sauteed onions, chopped apples, pinto beans, ground beef, and topped with mashed potatoes and a little butter.
I won't be making it again.

When Kirk asks me if he can pick up dinner I'm not going to say no.
