Delicious Finds


Greek Nachos
The sauce alone on these things is worth making it for. I replaced the yogurt with sour cream (added a little more than the recipe called for since I had a little extra in the tub), 1/2 the mint. SO delicious. Bella's eating it up as a dip, using just toasted pitas and baby carrots.









Grapefruit Bourbon Cocktail

I made this last weekend before dinner. It's not really the right time of year for this cocktail - but you can bet I'll be making it come spring and summer.

Half the Woman I used to be

Holy Crap - Two posts in a week???

I figured out my new year's resolution.

In 2010, I am going to get rid of half of the crap in our house.

Yup, that means half my closet, half my furniture, half my decorations, half my books (even my cookbooks - I swear!), etc. I figure if I do it room by room it will be manageable.

My life is too heavy.

I might just get rid of half of my job too. Just watch me.

Happy New Year!!!

Yowza...

It's been a LONG time, no?

Christmas was wild this year: driving here and there, endless amounts of gifts being opened, many drinks being had and hosting Christmas Eve yet again for me, mark, bella, my mom and dad, my sil/bil/niece/nephew, mil/fil, and my brother/sil/nephew.

Here's what we had:

Crudite with dip
Gougeres
Affinois and crackers

Prime Rib
Au Jus
Noodle Kugel (1 # egg noodles, cooked; 3 oz melted butter, 1 cup sour cream, 1# cottage cheese, 2 eggs, beaten. mix all together, put in a greased baking dish, and dot with butter. cook 1 hour at 375F til browned on top. so good!!!)
Salad with goat cheese and roasted beets
Rolls
Red wine/beer/sparkling water

Tiramisu cake
Fruit Tart
Coffee

I know my posts are few and far between, but I want to wish you all a belated Merry Christmas and an early Happy New Year.

Goodbye 2009 - Welcome 2010 (what took you so long???)!
