I was cleaning my room tonight in anticipation of Lisa's visit and realized I hadn't seen my favorite dinosaur shirt in a while. I looked for it in my dresser drawers but I can't find it! I'm so upset. I need to find this shirt. I want to wear it tomorrow. Womp. The shirt is the one in this picture. If you've seen it, please return it to me. Thanks.

Cake or Death?

Made a cake today! It's peanut butter cake with chocolate-peanut butter icing. It's delicious and extremely easy to make! All you do is make a box of yellow cake and add a half cup of peanut butter. Then for the icing you take a container of chocolate icing and add a half cup of peanut butter. Easy!!!! Whoop. And it's Alex's favorite cake. JK lol. For Alex it would be cake & death. Haha.

Also had my first day of work today! It was pretty good. Very work-like. We did free art as our afternoon project and I made a sick picture (the dinosaur has grillz):
Good news: Pattaya was the reason I blogged today. Yay motivation. Check her blog at
Bad news: I'm not as committed of a blogger as Pattaya.

On Thursday, I made dinner for the family. I made steak with the Onion Horseradish dip recipe I put on here earlier along with a Tuscan Cheese Potato Bake thing and Maple Glazed Carrots. It was so good.
My family loved the potatoes so here's the recipe:

2 lb red potatoes
3 or 4 cloves minced garlic
1/2 tsp dried thyme, crushed
1/4 cup butter
1 cup buttermilk
4 oz fontina cheese, shredded (1 cup)
4 oz parmesan cheese, shredded (1 cup)
1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese
1/2 cup panko
1/4 tsp dried italian seasoning, crushed
1 tbsp olive oil

1. preheat oven to 400. lightly grease 2 quart square baking dish. set aside. scrub potatoes and cut into 1 inch pieces. in large saucepan cook potatoes in lightly salted boiling water 12 to 15 minutes or until tender; drain.
2. in skillet, cook and stir garlic and thyme in butter over medium heat for 1 minute; add potatoes. coarsely mash potatoes. stir in buttermilk, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp black pepper. fold in fontina cheese, half of the parmesan and the blue cheese, evenly spread in baking dish.
3. in small bowl, combine rest of parmesan, panko, italian seasoning, and oil. toss with fork to combine. sprinkle evenly over potatoes in dish. bake for 20 minutes or until bubbly and top is golden.

In other news, today my sister, Alyssa, told me she found this blog and says it's "extremely hard to find." Oh well. More importantly, she liked the good news/bad news thing I had recently stopped doing out of laziness. It will return this post!

Good news: took the first real nap of the summer today
Bad news: I have a heck of a lot of energy now and nothing to do with it. I must use it for good and not for evil.
