Brad Paisley and Miranda Lambert

Friday March 5, 2010 we set out to the concert my husband has been waiting for. Brad Paisley is his favorite singer and has waited a long time to see him. I leave it to Adam to buy the best tickets he can get. We only found out about the concert not even 2 weeks before he was here. We get to the concert and have the worst seats ever, 2 rows from celing bad, so far away you can't even see the big screen. Well knowing people in great places makes all the difference in the world. before I show you where we ended up let me just tell you Miranda Lambert is horrible, she sounded bad and looked bad. I would not go see her again for free, and she sang forever.
     I watch 4 wonderful kids, and their father owns the securtiy company for Thompson Bowling Arena, he got us 2 rows from floor on the side of the stage, they were the best seats because how the stage was set up. Besides the Tim McGraw and Faith Hill front row seats we had a couple of years ago, the best concert ever.

Chocolate sheet cake - Pioneer Woman

I have been so busy that I have not posted in forever. We have moved and put the house up for sale so I have been so busy.  I made another Pioneer Woman recipe, Chocolate sheet cake, and oh my does it taste good and oh does it ever make a ton.  If you ever need to make a big amount of something for a gathering or family reunion, make this. One of the easiest things I have made. 

Ingredients are:
baking soda
cocoa powder
powdered sugar

I mixed all the dry ingredients together and then the wet together.

once you mix them seperate then combine and pour in baking sheet, a big baking sheet pan

once you put in oven start mixing the ingredients for the icing

When the cake comes out the oven pour icing on cake right then
You will impress anyone that tries this cake.

Simple, Perfect Chili for a cold snowy day.

I rushed out Friday afternoon trying to beat the winter storm. Was not lucky, half way thru the store it was just a snowing. We get to the front door of the store and make a mad dash to get the groceries in and get out of the wet slush that is falling.  Made it home safe and pretty dry.  I will be away from home for a few days so I wanted to make Adam something he could eat on while I was gone. Chili is not my favorite thing to eat, I HATE BEANS!!!!!!!!!!!!! but I only added one can of pintos to this chili.
Ingredients are
cayenne pepper
chili powder
ground beef
tomato sauce
masa(corn flour)
optional: are pinto beans, kidney beans,jalapeno,diced tomato

first get ground beef and garlic cooking
then in a large pot I put the tomato sauce and all the spices
then once the meat cooked I added it to the sauce and spices and you are supposed to let it simmer for a hour but my mixture was too thick for that so I added the tomatoes and a little water to the pot and let it cook at once.
see too thick
now it is simmering for hour and it smells great!

cream the sugar and shorting

There are so many ways to name this one!

Pioneer woman calls it Egg in the Hole.  She also references 13 other ways to name this recipe. I made this for Adam for breakfast, I don't do eggs that well, working for McDonalds for over 2 years in high school, you would not want to eat them either. It was so simple, five minute total for the whole thing. So here is the steps.

The ingredients
sliced bread
black pepper

So simple

cut of holes(I used a glass)

cook for one minute then flip

Then plate

Try this sometime, it will be gone.

All that was left was the juice!

I have babied this beef brisket for 3 days. The marinating and waiting.....and waiting... and waiting.... and finally the cooking slow for over 3 hrs. I tell you it stuffed all six of us. This time I made Pioneer Women Beef Brisket. It for me was just a little salty, and did not shred, but it was devoured. So I will get to the good stuff.
Here is the recipe
Braised Beef Brisket

The Ingredients are:
beef consomme(not beef broth)
low sodium soy sauce
juice of lemons
garlic cloves
liquid smoke
beef brisket

One thing I can say is that none of these recipes have very many ingredients

Next we prepare

the beef consume(looks pretty gross)

The soy sauce(I will had half of this mext time) A little strong

the lemons

The garlic, oh!!! bring on the garlic

The liquid smoke(I think this is what makes it)

The brisket.  I went to Kroger and was looking all around the meat dept for beef brisket and the meat guy says this is way cheaper. Beef brisket is like 7.00 or more a pound. He says it is the same thing as beef brisket just leave the spices off. I think he was wrong. It would not shred.

I had to marinade for 48 hrs.

cover and wait...wait...wait...

wow looks good.

ready to eat and eat and eat.
