Weekend Catch Up

Bummer. Can't seem to find my camera. I think it's in a location in which I am not. Go figure.

We had a great weekend. Saturday I cooked and prepped all morning for a meet & greet for the local LGBT community at our house. It was a lot of fun, with lots of yummy treats. I'll get the photos up soon.

I made:

Cheddar Rosemary Crackers


Cheesy Sausage Balls


Turtle Cheesecake Dip

Pumpkin Pudding

We were also treated to some warm spinach artichoke dip and warm taco dip.

Sunday was for the most part, a day of rest, with the main adventure being the shopping for groceries for Thanksgiving Dinner.

I spent some time going over all the recipes and figuring out what we needed versus what we had in the pantry. Thank god I keep a stocked pantry, or I would have been out a few hundred extra! That being said, I managed to keep the bill below $200 for a five-course French dinner. Two ingredients along were over $50. Damn French with their highfalutin tastes! But I'm so frakkin' excited!!!!

Tonight I start the cooking and prep work. Stay tuned for more adventures.
