I like brown sugar with my mustard... and a giveaway!


Lately I've been trying out some new dinner recipes... 
The problem with all of these new recipes is that most call for onions...
and Hubs is the pickiest eater ever...
He hates onions!?!?!?! Weirdo!


Early on into our marriage,
I realized that one peeled and chopped apple would work as a supra excellent substitute anytime a recipe called for an onion.

*Also early on- I learned that as long as the Hubs thought I only added an apple I could also sneak in some finely chopped onions...
Of course I never did that... er... 
Just sometimes... er...
But for realz.
Onions are an important part of a nutritious life... 
sneaky onions mean love people!


Anyways, now that I figured out the onion/apple thing, 
I'm tots into trying other mix-n-matchin' in the kitchen... 
Next up! 
Brown sugar and mustard! 


Ok- maybe not the actual food, but you have to admit it kind of works with clothes...
Riiiiiiiiight?!?

So I made antelope and deer meatloaf last night. It was totally yummy! That is a pretty weird combo!

I love SO many different color combos.... black and white is one of my favorites:) Like a Cary Grant film for instance:)!

Oh, P.S. The meatloaf had a glaze on it that was brown sugar and dried mustard. It does taste really good!

You look super cute in that outfit! My favorite color is navy with anything... fuchsia, orange, tan.. navy with anything! My favorite food combo... I like to marinate with brown sugar and soy sauce and I've made a sauce combo of honey and balsamic vinegar. I don't think it's really that odd now that I'm typing it...
