Hi everyone! How’s your weekend treating you? I’ve been enjoying a lot of good eats!
Friday night while my mother in law was with the kiddos, I met hubby at the club for dinner. I had a glass of wine and some prime rib:
Mmmm. We went home to meet the kids and everyone went to bed.
Yesterday morning, hubby and I made pancakes for everyone for breakfast. I put some Trader Joe’s pumpkin butter in mine:
I love pumpkin butter in pancakes. Then it was onto making the pumpkin cake that I was bringing to Dina’s party last night. The recipe was from my favorite cooking instructor, Phillis Carey. While the cake was in the oven, I made the caramel sauce.
Sugar, butter, dark corn syrup, heavy cream and salt:
Bring it to a boil:
Let it boil until golden:
Add in some more heavy cream and stir until caramel melts and is smooth:
I think I let it get too dark but it was good anyway!
Pumpkin cake out of the oven:
We had a quick lunch of bean and cheese burritos before we took the kids to a birthday party:
My babysitter brought us these fabulous tortillas. They are so good! Of course I had some Cholula with my burritos. :) At the party I had a slice of cheese pizza and a couple of bites of my daughter’s chocolate cupcake.
When we got home it was time to prep the next dish I was bringing to Dina’s house: Indian Butter Chicken….my favorite meal ever! I went to the same party at her house last year and made the same thing. You can see the post and find the recipe for this sinfully delicious dish here.
Of course I had to have some vino to help me with the cooking:
While the chicken was simmering on the stove I got dressed for the party. It just so happened to be a costume party so I got to wear my new costume! Nothing too crazy….I only had to buy the bunny ears, bow tie and the lace wrist thingies:
I had some wine and ate some delicious appetizers at Dina’s party. Dina and I:
Indian Butter Chicken ready to go:
Time to dig in!
Check out the rice that was made…..everyone likes to fight over the crunchy top:
Everyone was helping in the kitchen:
Hubby and I:
Just in case you can’t tell….he was a boxer. :)
I’d like to tell you what everything is but I’m not sure….all I know is that everyone was delicious!!!
Here’s my pumpkin cake with the caramel drizzle:
Yum! We had such a great time at Dina’s Halloween party. Can’t wait to do it again next year!!
Eat anything fabulous this weekend?
