My First Fondant Cake

I successfully decorated my first fondant cake with the help of my son James. I realize fondant is not easy to do but I admit I did love the result of what we made. James helped me knead the fondant and put the decoration on top of the cake. I think he finds it fun too. I can see my future chef here. I gathered the materials and ingredients. It took a little while to do that since I did not make a list of it. I don't know why I didn't. I wanted to attend a cake decorating class this October in AC Moore but it was already full so I might as well try next time just out of curiosity's sake.
I made chocolate and yellow cake and put some icing butter in the middle. I made pastel colored flowers, leaves and stems as decor. It came out really awesome.

Japanese Food

It poured the whole day yesterday but it didn't stop us from eating out. We had dinner at the Wasabi Japanese restaurant. We don't usually go out on midweek but hubby said since my daughter is out to eat then we too can eat. I'm so happy that I get to choose where to eat. It's awesome food. I ordered the Deluxe Chef Sushi and seaweed salad. Hubby and James got hibachi rice and chicken. I love Japanese food.

Roasting Veges for Dinner

Whipping up dinner in a spur of the moment always happen to me. Yesterday I made some roasted cod fish and broccoli. It turned out really good. The kids who don't love broccoli started eating some and they confirmed that yes it taste better than plain ones. Today I decided to roasted come chicken thighs that we bought at bi-lo for 69cents per pound last night. I added some peppers, carrots, cauliflower and sweet potatoes. It even turned out better today than yesterday. We are trying to stay away from fried foods. I think roasting is a healthier option.
