“Boo – Bees!”

by DanicasDaily on August 16, 2010

Happy Monday All!!! Thanks for all the Birthday Wishes for The Husband ~ He kept asking me all day, did anyone else say anything?! LOL…I think he looks forward to your comments as much as I do.

He has had a pretty good day despite cutting his hand open at work and getting like 20 stitches in it.  The funny part – he took pictures to share ~ Don’t worry, I am not posting them :)  He seriously has such a positive attitude about it, even the doctor’s were asking him how come he wasn’t mad/upset.  That’s why he makes me a better person…I can’t say I’d be in a good mood after that 😉

For his birthday I gave the choice of going to ANY place he wanted to eat at or having me cook ANYTHING he wanted….Guess what??

I really thought he’d pick Texas Roadhouse or Buckhorn Grill ~ his two favorite places.

Nope, he chose to have me cook for everyone and to make THIS!


This is by far The Husband’s FAVORITE pre- marinated meat.  I LOVE it because it cooks in 15 minutes and is delicious!

Oh and 4 oz = 4 points!


I prepped all the “fixin’s” while this was on the grill.


* Trader Joe’s Organic Flour/Corn Tortillas

* Trader Joe’s Spicy Low-Fat Refried Beans

* Bill Bailey’s Carne Asada

* Trader Joe’s Pepper Jack Cheese Blend

* Trader Joe’s Organic Mixed Greens

* Tomato

* Trader Joe’s Guacamole

* Chevy’s Salsa (did you all know they sell it at Costco now?!)



He totally scored some good loot from all of us for his birthday ~ It’s fun spoiling him….Since I LOVE CARDS as much as you all do, I had to share the one I got him.


:D  Yup, Laffy Taffy jokes totally crack me up too!  😀


Sealed with a “rainbow” because he LOVES them as much as I do….HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY SUNSHINE!


I am off to watch Date Night with him :D  I bought him the DVD just so we could watch all the outtakes!

Three days and counting…. 😀

Night all!

I’m anxious to hear what you think of Date Night. We just watched it this past weekend and I really thought it was bad. I’m not sure what I was expecting, but the plot was NOTHING what I thought it would be. Too bad, Fey and Carell are a match made in heaven on the big screen.

Those look SOOOOOOO good!!! Happy Birthday to your hubby! I too LOVE the jokes on laffy taffy and Popsicle sticks, I think they are hilarious!

I love that card!!

Wow, dinner looked fantastic!

How cute is it that he wanted you to cook for him 😀

KERK’s got me wanting to make my own pesto pasta and you’ve got me jotting down notes for a ‘what’s cookin’ taco bar !

I’ve tried the Santa Maria marinated beef from Costco, but not sure that I’ve seen the carne… I’ll have to look for that next time. Did you find it to be salty or was it fine?


Jen August 17, 2010 at 12:14 pm

Dinner looked amazing!!! The card you got him reminds me of a joke I read once.

Q. What kind of bees make milk?
A. Boo bees.

Mmmmm! you’re food looks great!!!

Northern California girl, where are you from?? Where do you live? I am from Yuba City (ug) but live in Los Gatos, just south of San Jose.

Looks great– where did you buy that steak?

Happy belated birthday, Hulk Hogan!!

I’m just getting caught up after a couple weeks out of town, and I wanted to say hi and Happy birthday to your husband!! Looks like he had a great celebration (despite the cut – yikes!!) and you spoiled him well :) Love the card.

Hi Mary,

MMMMM, pesto pasta – can I come over for that?! YUM! Oh and your taco bar too LOL….I LOVE good food!

I have had the Santa Maria Beef before and thought it was just ok…..slightly over marinated for my liking. I really like the Carne Asada because the flavor it like, not overpowering and gets better the next day. It is a little salty, but, nothing in comparison to the Santa Maria Beef. Hope that helps and do tell if you try it!

Hi Ashley,

We bought it at Sam’s Club, but, they do sell a version very similar at Trader Joe’s that is tasty too.

bwahahaha i love love that card! hahaha!

Is the TJ’s version in the freezer, Danica? I don’t have a Sam’s membership, just Costco.

I just saw that card last week when looking for a birthday card… but it was for my brother-in-law, so I didn’t think it was quite appropriate. 😉

Hi Tamara,

I have never seen Bill Bailey’s Carne Asada at Trader Joe’s, however, you can get it at Super Target as well as Sam’s Club.
