Wining and Dining

Productive and lovely evening.

On the way home I was able to swing by my little bro's place and give him some leftovers that I know he will enjoy, he eats so much take out and no REAL food! He may be 19 but it will catch up on him. When I got home hubby made a fire, blasted some Kenny G Miracles, I poured a glass of wine and started on dinner. Tonight I made an easy chicken pot pie recipe from Cooking Light. It was so EASY and turned out PERFECT! I will be having this for leftovers tomorrow for sure.



I wrapped a few presents while watching some SUV we taped last night. Thanks everyone for the wonderful birthday dinner suggestions, I think I have the perfect dinner planned for my daddy's birthday dinner on Friday night. I pulled a lot from old mags:

The Menu:
Appetizers


Salad

Autumn Salad: Romaine And Radicchio, Tomato Wedges, Wheatberry Sprinkles (Wheatberries, Dried Cranberries, Sunflower Seeds, Golden Raisins, Chopped Carrots, Scallions, In Molasses And Balsamic Vinegar) And goat cheese.

NEW THINGS FOR A NEW YEAR

December 1: I took a scenic route to work, it was beautiful and neat to see new things!

December 2: Crawled into a tiny princess tent full of stuffed animals, it was cozy and made me want to be 7 again!!! lol..I never had a pink tent when I was 7 shoot or 8 or 9 .....!

December 3: My friend gave me a Rod Stewart CD I listened to it, and I LOVED IT! My first Rod Stewart experience, I have been missing out!


I didn't get a chance to photograph the winnings of the POTM because all the winnings haven't come in yet...hopefully tomorrow! Well I AM OUT HERE will have to catch up on all your blogs in the AM, I have a 5AM spin class!!!

You are such a good sis!! Your pot pie looks so good. Great comfort food!

The menu you've planned for your dad sounds great ... do you have a specific recipe for the Wheat Berry Sprinkles? I would love to have it ... sounds very interesting!

Oh, question about the cookbook contest ... does the recipe have to be one that I've bloggged about or can I just submit a recipe to you?

Thanks girl!
