143.0…On the road!
I’m writing this post from the car! We are on our way to Orange County for the day/night to stay with my mother in law. We are leaving bright and early for Boston tomorrow morning from Los Angeles.
Sorry I didn’t post last night but I went to TWO dinner parties. Yup, I ate two dinner last night. That’s how I like to roll. More on that in minute…
Monday night my husband took me out to dinner at my favorite restaurant: Firenze. They half half price bottles of wine on Mondays. :)
We split our favorite salad: Chopped Caesar:
I ordered a new dish for dinner:
It was linguine topped with prosciutto, pine nuts, spinach and gorgonzola. It was delicious and so fresh tasting! I decided that I need to make it a goal to try everything on their menu. I’m well on my way!
Yesterday’s breakfast was Special K Vanilla Almond & Fiber One cereal with almond milk and a side of cantaloupe:
I made my way over to Great News for a cooking class. The class was entitled “Spring Tea Party.” I love tea sandwiches. I could eat a million. And it doesn’t really count because they are so small right?
The first two recipes were BLT Smoked Turkey Lavash Rolls with Honey Mustard Spread AND Salmon Mousse on Pumpernickel Fingers with Cucumber Slices:
Holy yum to both of them. My favorite was the salmon mousse one. Unbelievably good!!
The next two recipes were Curried Puff Pastry Sausage Rolls AND Cheddar Cilantro Scones with Hot Pepper Jelly Cream Cheese Spread:
Both winners. I think the sausage rolls would make a great appetizer at a party!
The last two recipes were Oreo Chocolate Truffles AND Glazed Lemon Tea Cake with Macerated Strawberries:
Both were good but the Oreo Truffles knocked my socks off and were so easy to make! I will have to be making these soon!
After class, I ran a bunch of errands and came home to make an appetizer for one of the parties I went to.
The first dinner party we went to was a Passover dinner at a friends house. There was a lot of good wine, delicious food and great company. The kids had a ball with all the other kids.
We had some fabulous matzah ball soup:
And a great dinner!
Chicken, roasted potatoes (sweet and regular), peas and a couple of salads.
I had to excuse myself from that party to go to the next: Bunco. I got their just in time to have my second meal:
Mexican bar! I made a big burrito and had some of the Tomato Feta Salad that I brought. Make this salad – it’s a winner!
I put this cute tag on my wine glass (it was meant for beer bottles but I made it work) that said: More Please:
My wine glass magically refilled! How wonderful!
It was up at at em this morning! Get packed, get dressed, and get the fish bowls cleaned. I bought these food tablets that feed them for 7-10 days. What a great invention!
Breakfast was an egg sandwich on a toasted English muffin. No fruit…we are all out.
Ok…that’s enough before I get carsick! We are flying Virgin America tomorrow (yeah Wi-Fi!) so hopefully I’ll have a chance to catch up on all your blogs! Catch you on the flip side.
Do you get carsick?
Ever been to Boston? What should I see? Where should we eat? Keep in mind we have two little kids with us. :)
