Ohhhh thanks for joining me on my journey to cook through the Pioneer Woman's cookbook!! There are some scary recipes for me (although no lobster, like in Julie and Julia!! *whew*!!!), and this week I conquered a quasi-fear of FRYING!!!! yay!!!! amazing, i tell you!!! Anyway, I'm getting ahead of myself…

First, I made the Marlboro Man's Favorite Sandwich (well, I made a couple of them!) and served them with chips and the leftover artichoke dip…YUmmmy!!

Here are some of the during pics!!

{at Chappell Hill Cafe!! wonderful, wonderful little place!!}

Tonight I did it!! 

I fried Beef Cubed Steak – to make Chicken Fried Steak!! 

Omgosh!! I have never actually fried anything ever!! Not with a flour wrapper!!

And I've attempted gravy a million times…never has it come out this fantastic!!

This will be on the menu often at our house! All of my kids really ate it well!! 

and Mr Gorgeous and I? ooooohhhhh we could NOT stop talking about it ALL night!!
