My Attempt at Being Domestic

A few weeks ago, before orientation consumed my life, I got the domestic bug. I went to the grocery store and actually pre-planned menu items. I successfully made a pot roast and stuffed peppers! This is big for me to do during the week because between working full-time and being in graduate school, I am wiped out by the end of every day, then my weekends are spent playing catch-up.

Anyways, I even got the itch to make some cupcakes! I know, cupcakes aren't exactly a gourmet feat, I have never made them before. I made strawberry cupcakes with vanilla icing and red velvet cupcakes (Jason's favorite) with cream cheese icing.




They turned out great and it gave me a chance to pull out all of my cupcake related items that I got as wedding gifts (Thanks Karin, Jessica and Nicole). I even pulled out my favorite Lenox Butlers Pantry Cake Stand...thank you Grammy and Vic!
