It has been a while since I posted anything, but I have been busy working on a mini for a friend who is retiring. Not to mention, the never ending saga of the furnace/ac/electric which began before Christmas, and may finally come to an end today. Whew.
Now we are on to the new deck, countertops, kitchen floor and new doors.
Today's card is for The Kraft Journal - their theme this week is LOVE, which makes total sense today, so close to Valentine's Day.
My husband and I did a "romantic Valentine dinner" as our fun thing this year - only we took a cooking class ! Wow, was that ever fun. So we got the class, and an incredible meal too, along with some local wine - met some interesting people, learned a few things, and heard about the best wine EVER. (One of many local wineries, Sweet Cheeks Rosy Cheeks is the wine, only available on site I hear... love their Reisling)
For our meal we had crab cakes as an appetizer with red pepper remoulade, an "upscale" salad with candied pecans, gargonzola cheese, macadamia nut oil dressing, then saltimbocca, garnished with a cranberry/raspberry sauce, butternut squash/apple/onion puree, potato galette, and a raspberry cream swirl cake. The most amazing thing about it all was how very very light it was - satisfying and delicious.
Wow, am I hungry now. Too bad hub is "only" cooking me lobster and asparagus tonight, *sigh*.
