And while I'm here posting...

Last week was a SUPER busy week.  Blake has been working really hard and late, I had three shoots, things were crazy and we hadn't really seen each other (except for at the gym).  Sat. I decided I would make him a really nice dinner and was hoping for some bonding time :)  Well, we worked on the lawn most of the day and then I had a newborn shoot (which I LOVE) that evening, so by the time I could even get dinner on the table it was after 9:30pm.  

On a side note, I saw this recipe on the Barefoot Contessa.  I LOVE HER STUFF... but it's always a little on the heavy side, if you know what I mean!  So, Anyway, I made steak w/ a Roquefort blue cheese sauce, sauteed wild mushrooms and parsley, and fresh cornmeal-battered onion rings.  YES... a LOT more grease than we ever eat... but hey, it was a special night, and steak is, after all, one of our favorite indulgences.  Well, we (Blake) definitely indulged (esp. on the blue cheese sauce), and went to bed feeling a little nauseated.  Around 6 am I heard him HEAVING in the bathroom.  Ohhhh... it was so bad.  He said he'd been having blue cheese nightmares all night long!  Poor guy.  I took a picture b/c I was so excited w/ the meal.... but I probably won't be fixing it anytime soon.  *Sigh*... so much for trying to impress.
