So a few more days and it’ll be Christmas and I have so much to do. Besides the gifts I have to go food shopping. I don’t mind food shopping but I have NO idea what to cook during this holiday season. IDEAS??? Let me just say I do not want to cook Turkey, Ham or Pork Shoulder. I want to cook something new, not to time consuming and not to expensive. And now for some new cookbooks!
So I’m in search of a bowl for my Secret Santa. The name I picked out of a brown paper bag has dropped hints that she wants a pasta bowl. I’m planing on getting the bowl and filling it up with pasta, pasta sauce, an apron, kitchen towels and anything else I can find. Sounds like a fun gift right? I hope she likes it.
This weekend I took a walk and ended up at Eataly. I had my camera ready to take pictures but I was to overwhelmed with all there was to see that I forgot to take my camera out from my pocket 😦 But let me just say I will be back and pictures will be taken. If you haven’t heard of Eataly, it just everything Italy. Eataly has a mixture of imported items and locally made items, all good. I bought an artisan bread that was so tasty. Tune in for pics at a later date 😉
I love to cook! Bake…only from a box. A would love to create instead of a book club (which my group was suppose to finish reading the book Nov 17 and it’s Dec and I’m the only one reading the boring book) a club with food. A group of friends each cook a dish and then we share over wine. Unforgettably my group of friends rather go out to eat than cook. I’ll yet again be the only one cooking. Does anyone else belong to a Cooking Club?
It’s been a really long time since my last post. Life just got in the way 😉
It’s almost a week and I’m still eating turkey! Is anyone else? Right now I’m eating turkey salad sandwiches. Really good! So I think I gained a few pounds 😦 and the holiday season has just begun. Today I got home and noticed that I never put my belt on. Oh well. What’s next on the menu?
This weekend we had a great time in Lake George, NY. There were so many places to eat and so many things to do but not enough time 😦 We did go to a really good restaurant for lunch, The Lobster Pot. I ordered Oysters, OMG Delicious! And the hubby had Surf and Turf which tasted so good. I would love to go back and eat there again. If you’re in the area try to make it part of your lunch/dinner destination.
Last week I went to Rhode Island and ate at The Red Parrot Restaurant. Their menu has way to many choices. The menu actually comes in a binder. They have a bunch of drinks like Mango Mango Colada, Red Parrot Rum-Bha, Jungle Voo Doo and of course an assortment of wines. I couldn’t drink, I had a cold which I still kinda have 😦 . I ordered the Cape Cod Lobster Bisque which had cheese or at least tasted like cheese to someone with a stuffy nose and a sore throat and taking a bunch of meds. And for a meal I had the Grilled Mahi Mahi with a lime ginger marinade and I must say it was really tasty even with my suppressed sense of smell and taste. Hope to make it back on day and explore Rhode Island some more.
