135.8...and the giveaway winner is announced!!

After I blogged that my favorite restaurant is Firenze....my hubby came home and announced that's where he was taking us to dinner! Score!!! Mondays are half-priced bottles of wine day so we rolled with it:

Hubby and I shared our normal: Chopped Caesar Salad:

I ordered the Linguine with Clams for my entree:

I didn't like it. :)

I went to sleep a happy (and full!) girl! Guess I deserve the "weight gain." :)

Breakfast this morning was plain non fat yogurt with Fiber One cereal and strawberries, blackberries and raspberries:

I took the kids to school and it was off to cooking class at Great News! You know I'm a happy camper when I get to go to cooking class. Today's class was entitled: Springtime in Paris.

First recipe was Quiche Lorraine with Bacon and Swiss and a Buttery Crust:

Uh...bacon and cheese? What could be better!?! I loved it!

The second recipe was Chicken Veronique with Red Grapes and Fresh Tarragon:

Super excellent sauce!!! As you can imagine, I wasn't a fan of the grapes in it, but you could just leave those out.

Next up was Chicken Crepes with Asparagus, Ham and Mushrooms with Veloute Sauce:

This was so delicious!!! The sauce was like velvet and I loved the filling!!! I would definitely serve this for a brunch dish!

The next dish was French Onion and Gruyere Topped Rib Eye Steaks:

Holy decadence! That onion sauce was amazing!!!! I forgot to take a picture of the dessert!!! Anyway...it was Strawberry Bavarian Cream Mousse with Fresh Sugared Strawberries. Light and delicious!!

I'm going out to dinner with my sister in law tonight so I definitely need to get a work out in before.....this will be quite a food day! Actually the rest of my week is filled with food so get ready!!
And now the moment you've been waiting for....the winner of the Vegetable Spiral slicer is: Liz!!! Liz, I'm going to email you and get all your info! Congrats!!! And thank to everyone who entered!! Just in case you're curious I used the random integer generator at random.com.
Enjoy your evening!!
