Attempting to catch up on two months of posts that needed to be done!

Fail! Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll Pancakes - they looked amazing but flavor wise they weren't so good and ever time I flipped them they burned on the bottom
First attempt at making a Stromboli and it was great

Next time, instead of braiding it we will just fold it over and cut air vents
Another fail! So I love prunes but prune juice is just plain nasty!
Breakfast fajita with steak, onions, and peppers
We liked it so much we ended up eating it for breakfast and lunch
I've been wanting to make lamb chops for a while now and we scored a pack on the "reduced/must sell now" section and it was still outrageously priced!
Lemon and Oregano Lamb Loin Chops
Chops, salad, and mashed taters - one of my best meals ever!
Quick and easy beef stew with potatoes and carrots
Finally perfected the tortillas - doubled the recipe but still only made 8
Altered my regular bread recipe to include 3 cups of wheat flour - turned out well, but it didn'trise quite as much as I would have liked. Still, it tasted really good with jam.
Paul's 5 Bean 3 Meat Chili - a bowl full of spicy goodness
A bit of shredded cheese and some sour cream and it is perfected
Our first attempt at making a home style version of Kraft pasta salad. Cucumber, tomatoe, pasta, sour cream, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and dried dill - need to tweak it a little bit because it turned out a little soupy but overall pretty good.
Second attempt at making cole slaw and it turned out just right. Half a head of shredded cabbage, one cup of diced onions, one cup of shredded carrots, half cup of mayonnaise, quarter cup of white vinegar, 1 tsp salt, 1 tbsp black pepper, and 1 tsp dried dill. The best slaw I have ever had.
My new favorite cocktail: Tequila Sunrise
Tequila, orange juice, and grenadine - mix it all up and serve it with a slice of lemon.
