Mushroom Soup from Paula

I made this mushroom soup last week.  We loved it.  I don’t know why Paula‘s soup is more dark than mine?  Maybe cause I used chicken stock?  Maybe with beef stock, it’s darker.

When the soup was done, I tasted it and told my boyfriend it was a little bland.  And then I remembered that I forgot to add the chicken granules (I only added water).  So at the last minute, I added the chicken granules.  LOL  It made a big difference.

I always use sodium free less fat chicken granule bebause my boyfriend has to absord a minimum of sodium.  He has high blood pressure and he’s going to turn only 37 years old this Wednesday.

Video of my son playing Wii

On this video you can see my son having fun playing Wii.  In fact it’s a Gamecube’s game but it’s playable on the Wii.  It was Madagascar.  The quality of the video is not very good but it’s funny to hear him laugh.  He knew I was there so he was always talking to me.  Don’t worry if you can’t understand cause he speaks in French LOL

Joyeux Noël

Today is my office “party de Noël”!  (Christmas party).  We’re going to be a big gang about 12-13 people.

The food is going to be amazing cause we’re going to a restaurant we tried a few times.  And we love this place.  A bit expensive but today we don’t have to pay 😀  After I’m going to go shopping a little bit.  I have to find the gifts for my boyfriend’s birthday.  And I’m going to buy armenian pizza from Arouch miummmm

Spaghetti and Meatballs

I made Spaghetti and Meatballs from the blog Guilty Kitchen.

I didn’t have spaghetti squash so I used regular spaghetti with great results.  Usually I don’t really like “tomato” sauce, for me there has to be meat in it.  And also I’ve never made spaghetti sauce with meatballs.  So that was a first for me.  I really liked the taste of all combined together.  The meatballs are great and yummy.  Cheese on top would be great but like that it’s very good.

Rainbow Cupcakes + Wedding Cupcake Buttercream

I made rainbow cupcakes that I seen on Picky Palate blog.  Her cupcakes are so beautiful.  But mine didn’t look as good as the ones she made.

I made a few changes, maybe it affected the color but the taste was great and they were so moist.  I used a white cake mix instead of yellow (I don’t think it affected the color).  I thought I had a instant vanilla pudding mix in the pantry, but I was wrong.  I had : butterscotch, chocolate, pistachio.  So I took butterscotch.  Maybe it affected the color but chocolate would have been worst for the color LOL

I made only 12 cupcakes.  So they were big.  I was not so good at separating the colors.  So I did it the best I can.  I would like to present you a beautiful cupcake but I can’t for now.

Close your eyes LOL   Tadam!

I wanted to do a frosting and chose Wedding Cupcake Buttercream from RecipeGirl.  I did half the recipe.  I’m glad cause my boyfriend and my son prefer these cupcakes without frosting.  They’re so boring LOL  Anyway, I kept the frosting for my cupcakes and I’ll probably have to do more cupcakes because of the leftover frosting that is waiting in the fridge 😀

I really love this buttercream.  It’s so yummy!
