    I enjoy cooking, baking and eating out. I also enjoy traveling, volunteering, reading and other casual pursuits from time to time. I also love my bichon puppy Max, and my really sweet hubby, Matthew who indulges my foodie tendencies.

  1. I have now acquired about three bottles of vidal blanc though our wine club (not all at one time, so two different vintages). I need to use them. I am not really a dessert wine kind of person normally. I have a party coming up, could I make them into cocktails, or even better a punch??? If so, any ideas on what to mix with it to help tone down the sweetness?
  2. So Dave, was it good? What did you have? Inquiring minds want to know more.

    This week was a final focus on turkey- turkey and rice pilaf with a lot of veggies. Leftover turkey empanadas. Turkey sandwiches with miso/sriracha broccoli. Pasta with sausage, butternut squash, spinach, miso butter. I have been on a masa/miso kick recently.
  4. Or move somewhere people don't know him... but then he would also have to eat some humble pie.
  5. I feel like Eastern European/Med style restaurants are everywhere these days, maybe that is just me, a little sad to see the change in direction.
  6. Don, The US Government did not issue a proclamation saying you could not go to Waco, TX, and I am not sure they had a history of killing person who went onto their territory previously, but I don't know a lot about it. I would compare this more to going to North Korea without permission and trying to convert people there to not be communist or to not follow their leader. You know you are prohibited from doing it, and you know someone has died before doing it.
  7. While I tend to think of both of these things as bad... I would like to say that I see a difference in that Al-Qaeda has killed likely as many Muslims as non-Muslims. Maybe someone of a different type of Islam. Not to say Christians haven't gotten into physical battles/wars with other Christians- certainly Catholic/Protestant wars happened for a VERY long time. But saying that Al-Qaeda only kills non-believers to me is a false statement, as to me they, like ISIS, have become a political group who are not just following religious zeal. I also think that going to a place you are strictly prohibited from going to a group of people who clearly want to be left alone is a do at your own risk, and accept all consequences and I don't think any government should be spending resources on this, it just was what it was.

    I am making enchiladas tonight! Do you not normally use corn tortillas? I normally do, but I only have two corn and then some flour, so I was going to use flour tonight. Last night I made beef pot roast in the instant pot. I think it would have been better sous vide, but I didn't advance plan. It was fine, Hubby liked it, and I don't really like pot roast, so I am never surprised that I still don't like it. But I don't dislike it to the point that I won't make it for him, it's just a rare occasion.
  9. Took Mom to Northside 10 after some wreath decorating. She had the Parmesan flounder, and I had the chopped salad. Everything was good, my salad was crispy and fresh. Mom REALLY liked her flounder, big portion, but good. It's close to the house, so I am sure we will go try out other things.
  10. If I were a little girl, I would totally want one of those cool artsy tee-pees and some decorative lights for it. I don't have kids, but I have friends whose little girl has one, sooo cool. I got this for my 2 and 4 year old nephews. What about American Girl dolls (they might already have them). What about a bath bomb kit??? Don't they really like bath bombs?
  11. My Mom and I went to Lena's the other night- mainly because of how late they serve dinner. We ordered glasses of wine, and there was a fair amount of choices at what I think are a reasonable price point. We got the eggplant parmesaen and the margerita pizza to split. The pizza isn't bad, but it isn't great. I think perhaps they don't do a long rise like some pizza places, so there isn't as much funk in the dough??? Just a guess. The ingredients are good, and the oven is good, it's just missing a complexity in the crust itself, which gets nice rise. The eggplant parm though was really good. It was done lasagna style, stacked up high with cheese in between the layers. Both Mom and I really liked it. Very heavy, but we were hungry and cold and it hit the spot. They serve it with homemade pasta with red sauce, it's more of an orange sauce in color, but I liked the flavor, again not my favorite, but not bad. This place is a great bar, and I will try more of the menu. It isn't a top pizza spot, even Lost Dog down the street, to me, is better on pizza. But it is open late, service was very nice, and wasn't bad at all. I would try more stuff on the menu, but might not worry about getting pizza. I will say for the pizza though, it was really good warmed up in the oven the next day.

    I bought some fresh tagliatelle pasta at the store, and made shrimp diavolo (shrimp, red sauce, red pepper flakes, onion, garlic, spinach, a splash of wine) for Hubby and my Mom.

    If I may add an 11th tip... If your hummus is too thick, or if you leave it in the fridge and it get a little thicker than you want, if you add a little water, it may thin it to a more pleasant consistency. I really like the LT hummus, and I like how smooth and thin it is, sometimes I have to add a little water to mine to get it to that level.

    Last night was a southwestern rice bowl. Ground turkey sauteed in adobo sauce, a rice-quinoa blend with corn made in the instant-pot, tomatoes, peppers and onions roasted in the oven with olive oil, worchestershire and southwestern seasoning by Penzeys. Topped with tomatillo salsa, a little cheddar cheese and mine with avocado.

    Last night was boring the same ingredients as above put into homemade tortilla with fennel and carrot that I previously quick pickled. Sort of a med taco of sorts.
