Foodie Heaven

I know I've complained that I was crazy busy, so this post is going to seem a little inconsistent with that, but today at 12:45 I went to
I wanted to go because this...
was on sale for $6.99 a pound. NY Strip Steaks Prime. I bought three. One for this weekend and two to freeze. I apologize if the blood makes you queasy.

While there I also bought these because they were on sale for 99 cents a pound Want a closer look?
There was a limit of 2 bags per customer. I only wanted one bag, but the little stock guy thrust two bags at me and I felt pressured, so....
I've got 5+ pounds of cherries!

This was also on sale...
I had to get asparagus because that will go wonderfully with my steak!

Then I saw these babies...
Home grown tomatoes. I couldn't resist.

Since I was at Central Market, I bought my favorite strawberry preserves.
While I was there I also looked for this...
to go in this salad recipe (recipe). I also looked for Onion Juice, but they were out. My friend Suz found some at Kroger, so I will try there.

It was really my day! My favorite yogurt was on sale also...
Can you tell yet that I went to the store before I had lunch? So BAD, especially when you are going to Central Market! I had a turkey and Havarti sandwich made that I ate on the way home. I also bought some of this goodness for supper....
Tomato, Mozzarella and Penne Salad (yes, it was on sale)
and
Apricot and Almond Chicken Salad (sadly not on sale, but so worth it)
And though I wish I had willpower, I do not.
So I couldn't pass up this gorgeous cupcake!

As if all of this wasn't enough, when I was checking out my checker lady said, "Honey, Did you get one of Truluck's Scallops?" I say "What are you talking about?" She explains that back in the demo area, they had just started a demo from the Restaurant Truluck's. She said "Go get you one, I'll check real slow!". I ran back there and got a little bit of heaven on a plate! I love scallops and it was BEYOND.


Then checker lady said, "Go through those doors and get your restaurant week coupons." I hadn't realized that restaurant week was coming up. I called a friend and found out he was game, so I have made us reservations for Del Frisco's during restaurant week and my coupons will allow us to get Fourth Courses added onto the restaurant week deal. It is super lucky because Restaurant Week is my one down week between Summer and Fall semesters! I can't wait!

Swiss Oatmeal {Copy Cat Recipe}

I'm obsessed with Swiss Oatmeal.  I particularly love  Corner Bakery's Swiss Oatmeal.  If you are not familiar with Swiss Oatmeal, it is a cold oatmeal cereal with fruit and nuts.

I've had a similar recipe for years, but it was only similar.  It wasn't close enough for my liking.  So I finally set out into the land of Pinterest to find a recipe that was a good Copy Cat.  I found a few, combined them and came up with what I think is a very close Copy Cat Recipe of Corner Bakery's Swiss Oatmeal.

Here's what I do (note, this recipe is really just pictures, because I don't really have measurements for these things.  The photos aren't great, but it's easier if I show you what I do)...

Here's the Phase 1ingredients... Milk Honey Yogurt (I use a vanilla greek yogurt) Oats (old fashioned, not quick...you probably could do steel cut too)  I've simplified this to where you only need a bowl and a spoon for Phase 1 because I use my yogurt cup as a meas…

It's all about the dress...

I mean I guess it's really all about getting married, but come on, you always anticipate the dress right?  Well holy moly folks!  Today a big secret was released to the press.  No, we still don't know which dress or tiara Kate will be wearing, but we heard for the first time that Princess Diana had a back-up dress!  Here are some of the pictures and sketches...

Real dress on Left~ Back-up on the Right Here are the sketches of the back-up dress

And you know what?  I like the back-up dress better than the one she wore!  I know, I know.  I'm going to get blasted for saying that, but I'll just confess it right now... My name is Kara and I've never thought Princess Diana's dress was all that and a bag of chips.  Nope.  Not my favorite Royal Wedding Dress by any stretch of the imagination.  What is my favorite?  Probably the one that Sarah Ferguson wore when she married Andrew...
It had beautiful beading and stitching throughout.  Also on the train it had an "A&quo…

Pumpkins, Gourds & Flowers, oh my!

Yesterday, I went to the Dallas Arboretum.  Lisa, Jennifer, and I went as my birthday outing.  We got a late start due to some court delays, so we stopped for lunch first.  I needed some make-up too, so we went to Neimans.  We ogled some purses, had lunch, I got some make-up and then we headed out to the arboretum (in the rain).

It was raining pretty good on the way over, but luckily, we only needed umbrellas for a few minutes.  Thankfully the sun never came out, because it was so humid, I'm pretty sure we would have melted. 




First, we made our way toward the Pumpkin Village...

I love how they made garland out of the mini-pumpkins...






These rose bushes were just stunning!  The roses on each bush varied in color from a coral, to a blush, to a purple hue...
It was Fall at the arboretum, and pumpkins, gourds, and mums are a large part of the visit.  However, they also have a Chihuly art exhibition going on.  I took so many pictures, I HAVE to make that it's whole separate post.  …
