We did have a delicious moist roast, some spicy fajitas, and a few other things...haha can't remember.

Here's 3 recipes of some of the yummy meals that we have had in addition to those others. They are all pretty similar as far as ingredients go, but just enough different too.

i love that each recipe gets bigger and bigger. does that have to do with how much you liked each one or is it subconciously telling me which one has a greater fat content?
