If Jen Can Cook, So Can You!

LOL! I'm not going to lie, I was spoiled! Before I got married, I always had home cooked meals from my mama. I wasn't home much, since I was spending time with the bf at the time, so I failed to watch her. Now, I've noticed myself submerged in my mom's culinary skills. I always watch her when I come over. I call her while I'm cooking and I ask for tips!

When we were engaged, I realized I had to buckle down on the culinary skills. So, I started little things here and there. Now, my cooking skills have improved to the tee! I still have plenty to learn, so if any of you cooking mamas out there have some recipes to share, please do! As for Sunday night, I decided to make sushi. Everytime me and the husby go out for sushi, we always stare at it and realize that we can make it at home! I'm allergic to fish, which totally sucks, because I would love to make some fish sushi. DAMMIT! Anyways, I made shrimp tempura rolls for me and the husby. My rolls had shrimp tempura, mango (the resturant we go to puts mangos in the sushi we order, sooo good!), and cucumber slivers.



I was amazed! It was very easy to make, but it was pretty time consuming! Not bad for my first time, eh? Me and Husby enjoyed our sushi rolls! dYUM! Then, food coma... BLEGH!















--------------------------------------

Enough about that! So I'm sure that you all heard about MAC's Holiday Collections! 25% OFF! Say WAH? MAC never has sales. They sure proved me wrong! So, I put the MAC exclusive, Charming Garnet set on my Christmas list for the husby. He went Christmas shopping for me by himself today and when he came back, he said, "Go ahead and order your set, they didn't have it at the mall" LOL! Awwww, he went to MAC alone! LOL! I'm so amazed, because it hates going there with me. You should see his face, it's that "Poor guy!" look. HAHA! Sooo! I hopped on the computer and placed an order for these two babies! WOO! Free shipping too, SCORE! I wasn't supposed to buy anything for myself, but geez! MAC + Sale ... UHH I couldn't pass it up. Have a lovely day!
