the best rain out

Friends, it's been a while. For that, I'm sorry. I'll try to take a few moments and fill you in on the latest catering escapades from my kitchen.

But, first, I must tell you about two blogs of which I have recently become aware (and how this awareness came about).

My husband and I were scheduled to go ice skating with some friends this evening. Mother Nature had other plans, as a major weather system moved into the area bringing buckets and buckets of rain with it this afternoon. So, our party headed for the nearest pub. (Logical, right?)

Over a great dinner and wonderful conversation, I discovered that two of my friends had started blogging in the last few months. Both of their blogs are food related, and you should definitely check them out! (one post features some GORGEOUS pictures from a recent Italy trip) (shows you how to combine meal planning and grocer's weekly specials for savings)

In other news, my kitchen has been as busy as ever. I'll show you some highlights of the last few months.
