So, I've committed to myself to try ONE new recipe a week. So far I'm holding to it (well, it is only week 2). Last night I made Chicken Breast Stuffed with Goat Cheese and Sun Dried Tomatoes over rice and steamed broccoli as a side. I also made cupcakes with the girls for dessert. They loved frosting and decorating the cupcakes with sprinkles! Yummy! We even displayed them on our new cake plate that we received as a gift.
Dinner was AWESOME. I'm always nervous about the recipes I try because they are typically from Cooking Light (and in Peter's mind light that means no flavor). But he loved it!
I have to admit that last week at the grocery store I had to ask someone if shallots were similar to green onions. The woman looked at me and laughed and pointed to something that did not look like a green onion AT ALL. She went on to say that the dish would have turned out completely different if I had used green onions. Thanks. Well, now I know!
Okay, side note. I'm starting to freak out that I'm SO CALM before the wedding. Am I missing something? Seriously, I'm the LEAST stressed I've ever been in my life (and believe me I'm such a Type A person!). We are down to 30 DAYS! So excited.
I'm a 30-something gal who went from Sassy and Single in the city (Chicago) to an instant mom living in the burbs w/my husband's 2 adorable little girls (ages 9 and 11). My husband's late wife's sister's husband (who I used to work w/) introduced us and the rest is history. I've never been happier. And summer 2010 we added a little boy to the mix. We love our little Prince Georgie!
