Once, twice, three times a laday...

Three years, my friends, it's been three years! Happy Anniversary to my dear dear hubby! It's hard to believe three years have already flown by, but it's hard to believe it's only been three years. So much awesomeness to reflect on, and so much to look forward to in the future. Here's to my Bradford! Happy anniversary, babe!

Now, if we were to be specific, I would guess that at this exact moment three years ago, I was smack dab in the middle of makeup orgy at our condo!

Anyway, tonight we are off to celebrate at Eve! Woot! But to precelebrate, last night I made yum preaversary dinner, Brad's choice. "I want meatloaf!" So, I give you sausage meatloaf cupcakes with mashed potato frosting. :)

Who knew that it would be difficult to find foil cupcake liners? I bring you my in-a-pinch solution:

All class here.

I followed the recipe pretty closely, but I didn't use cream w/ the potatoes, and I wasn't in the mood to dirty up my hand mixer. I just smooshed. I also didn't worry about making it look like real frosting, so I just scooped the potatoes on top (instead of using a pastry bag that I don't have).

I had to put my hands in. Ick.



I've never made meatloaf with sausage, but I really enjoyed the different flavor. They didn't come out of the tins perfectly, so in the end they were just a plate of potatoes and meat, but who cares, right? They were yummy! A little on the dry side, but all in all, we both enjoyed and I would make this again.

To add a little green to the meal, I picked up some Chelsea-grown collard greens and dried cranberries and sauted us up a little side dish. Mmm. I tend to get impatient and undercook greens, though -- need to work on that. haha

Finally... Dessert. Mmm.

Mini wedding cakes!

Dude, remind me to show you my ziploc bag trick for pastry bags. It works for everything. Also, can't wait to hear deets on Eve!
