Ten on Tuesday

1)  I need to make this goat cheese souffle soon!  I've made both a savoury souffle before, and a sweet one, and they were great!

2)  I whipped up some of my favourite cupcakes today - pumpkin cupcakes with salted caramel butter cream.  I like these because they are not too sweet.  They have a bit of spice, salt and sweet all mixed together.

You start with a gorgeous batter.

After baking it for a while you get perfect little cupcakes.

Then you make deep amber coloured caramel, mix it with butter and icing sugar, and then make 'em pretty!


And there you have it.  Find the recipe here.

3)  I also made some double chocolate cookies stuffed with Oreos

4)   Since some of you asked after my last post, Metric was great, and Gwar - even better!  I love live music!

5)  I saw this little critter crawling around outside this afternoon.  How it survived the -30 temps. we have already had, I have no idea!

6)  I really want to see "Seven Psychopaths" in the theater.  Chris and I also want to go see "Lincoln" and "Skyfall".  I love going to movies!  Have you seen any of these?  Thoughts?

7)  Last night I made potato soup and biscuits for dinner.  This soup recipe was passed down from my great grandma.  Find the recipes here.


8)  After linking to the potato soup and biscuit recipes above, I realized that I made this meal exactly one year ago on the same day (November 19th two years in a row). 

9)  We made a ridiculously delicious dinner this evening with moose in it!  Haha, stay tuned.

10)  I mentioned in this post of random facts about me, that I am obsessed with world maps and globes.  It's true.  I love them.  Some day I totally want to have this framed on my wall. 

11)  I know I titled this post "10 on Tuesday", but I just saw that the advertising banner on the top of my site is advertising World of Warcraft!?  Huh?!  Are my readers WOW players?  C'mon, reveal yourself!

What are your Tuesday things?  How's your week going so far?

Ohhhh I'm going to do the same but with a map from National Geographic. I think it will look nice in my office :)

That is random that you made the same thing 2 years in a row! That sounds delicious though!!

My Tuesday was awesome. I went for a run with my boyfriend, and we had a low key evening together! My week is really good as I passed a licensing exam for work that I was stressed about. Tonight I leave for my parents lake home for Thanksgiving and can't wait to stuff my face with turkey, stuffing, and mashed potatoes!!

I love pumpkin cupcakes, and need to try that salted caramel icing! And I'm not really a movie buff, the only one of those I've heard of is Skyfall! We went to see Looper a couple weeks ago though and it was good. And I ain't one of your WoW readers, ha ha :)
