thinking of making this for kaytie's birthday or our wedding anniversary

Ultimate MAN's dinner!!! 
Here's what you are going to need:

I used a loaf of hard crusted Italian bread, 3 rib eye steaks 1 lb. mushrooms, 1/2 lb. Swiss cheese an onion and 1 lb. of  bacon.

Hollow out the bread.

Cook all of this.

Try to leave the steaks a little rare as they will cook a little more in the sandwich.

Shove one of the steaks in the bread.

Sauce the steak.

I like to have to halves of the sandwich different so I use half thick worchschire sauce and half dijon mustard and horse radish sauce.

Add a layer of bacon.

Add a layer of Swiss cheese.

Stuff in as much of the mushroom and onion mixture you can.

Then add the other steak along with the juices from the pan.

Add a little more sauce.

Top it off with more Swiss cheese.

Put the top of the loaf back on.

Wrap it tightly in butchers' paper

Wrap it tightly in foil

Put a heavy cutting board on top to squish it down.

Now add weight and wait and wait

I used 140lbs of weight and let it sit for 4 hours.

Take weight off

Cut and enjoy.

for the past few weeks we have been buckling down for the "finish line" and waiting for our lives to grow just a bit fuller than it already is. great bread has been baked, chloe's growing up really fast, and i've been thinking about how the concept of a nerd has been watered down by pop-culture.

anyways i haven't had much time to blog but here are a two Legend of Zelda themed links i thought worth looking at:

I don't know how i feel about this
Kaytie enjoys getting on my nerves by making fun of Link's features as feminine (which they are not... they are elvish... no one thought twice about legolas or any of the elves of middle earth) and this video does not help my case.  I appreciate her musical arrangement but... i don't know.  Link doesn't point his toes up in the air.  Ever.  Having said that, the costume is pretty rad.

You thought your parents were weird?
For those who think they have weird parents, imagine if you found this video tape amongst your parents old stuff.  For the record, no these are not my parents.  Although I admit i would be supremely jazzed if my parents were in this video.

#8 is my personal favorite
