Excited!

I'm totally stoked. My friend, MC Hoo, made my Snowy Brownie recipe and said it turned out really great. I'm going to be honest and say how nervous I was. It's one thing to brag about how delicious I think something turned out and another to pass off the recipe to a friend and hope they find it as delicious too. Taste is such a subjective thing.

I also had another friend, Laura, try out my Moroccan Chicken and Almond Couscous recipe. I haven't heard back from her on what they thought of it. Which could mean they didn't like it and she's too nice to tell me or she's just been busy. Because I'm also nervous about that recipe as well I think it's cuz they don't like it and hoping it's because she's been busy. But I'm really trying not to think of it at all because I'll just drive myself crazy.

So on to other things. I got my hair chopped off yesterday. I'll have to get some pictures of it and post them. Maybe tomorrow. I hate having my picture taken. I cut about 4 inches off. It's funny when it comes to my hair I try all sorts of whacky things because it's hair, it'll grow back. So I'm never nervous to just do a major cut job where they practically take it all. However when 3ft gets his haircut I hover like a vulture and panic with every scissor stroke. One heinous haircut where his poor double cowlick stuck up like Alfalfa for 2 months and I'm majorly neurotic about it. I'm sure hairstylists around the US hate me. Oh well, I can't help it.

I made teriyaki steak for dinner last night and it turned out exceptionally well. Nothing fancy just marinated thin cut steak strips in teriyaki sauce and pineapple juice for 24+ hours and then broiled them. The pineapple juice makes the meat so tender because of the acid. I always add lemon, lime, or pineapple juice to meat marinades because it really tenderizes the meat and makes the toughest cut of meat absolutely wonderful.

Got a really late start today. I've been doing laundry, cleaning house, and having my husband underfoot so this is the first chance I got. See you tomorrow.

They ARE good! Even better after sitting in a ziploc bag overnight. :)
