Anyone else seriously happy it's Friday? Not that I feel it's been a crazy long week or anything, but I'm really (and i mean reaaaaaalllly) ready for a Saturday to sleep in.

Last night I wanted to do a little something special for the Mr., and the way to his heart is none other than food. Here is the menu :

It actually turned out really well...once I got the oven to FINALLY stop smoking. Our oven is "continuous cleaning" so I am not supposed to use anything but a hot rag to wipe the junk out, and the oven cleans itself by burning the junk off. Heat+junk=lots of smoke. I had all the fans going, doors open, everything I could to air out the apartment, and we finally got some clear air.

I didn't do a very good job of taking pictures last night, but the table was all set, including a sweet card for my hubby, and the dinner was delicious. Here are a few pics I snapped.

I can now say I have made steak and crab...a first time for both, and now I won't be afraid to make it again!

That's all for today! Oh, check out a little DIY tutorial I put together for Jessica over at Budget Savvy Bride today. She asked me if I could put together a tutorial for her readers, and of course I was happy to! Anything to help brides save some bucks.

Have a happy Friday!

I'm so proud of you for making your hubby such a yummy meal without burning the house down! Cute menu too and you know I am a fan of fondue! How is that plug-in fondue set, anyways? I have been curious.
