Prix fixe for me

Corn sweet corn update:Well the rain didn’t keep us from eating some great Iowa sweet corn this evening. In fact, the thunder is still rollin’ outside as I write this entry. The Strawberry Feta Couscous Salad from Iowa Girl Eats was a hit! And so was the Cookies and Cream cupcake that I devoured from FancyPants Cupcake Co. You should definitely order a dozen or two from them for your next party!

Salad making

The process...using fresh basil from our garden.

Finished product, and yes, those are camouflage seat covers that my husband had to have for his truck.

FancyPants cupcakes

And they even have an Oreo cookie on the bottom. Amazing!

Earlier this week I mentioned to my husband that we are due for a date night soon – so we decided to make a reservation for tomorrow night, which just so happens to be the first night of Des Moines’ restaurant week. Our choice? 801 Chophouse. I cannot wait to sink my teeth into a juicy piece of meat and maybe enjoy a glass of wine or two! There is still time for you to enjoy restaurant week too – it runs through the 28th, but I encourage you to make a reservation.
