J and I hosted the inaugural “Friendsgiving” party with our close friends this past weekend. Each gal was entrusted with bringing a crucial dish to complete our feast. Being the hosts of the gathering, I offered to take on the task of the turkey, stuffing and a side dish.
After almost two months of silence on my blog, I finally got the urge to write again. Sometimes my writer’s block gets so strong that I literally cannot think of anything good to write about. I then get distracted by work and other obligations and completely forgot I have a blog all together.
Oddly enough there aren't to many good Italian-American restaurants on the side of town J and I live. Luckily, Maggiano's is one of the few. You can get good food (and a lot of it) for a nice price. Especially since they give you a 'to-go' pasta for free when you order a pasta at the restaurant.
Lasagna is a sacred dish in our family. We have it on special occasions or when sometimes when the family gets together on Sundays for dinner. The recipe is passed down by teaching the younger generation.
What a weekend! It was filled with family, friends and food. What's better than that? Not much, in my book. On Friday night J and I went out to eat with my parents whom we haven't seen in a few weeks. On Saturday night I made a new lasagna recipe (coming soon in another post) that is definitely worth sharing, and on Sunday morning our close friends came over for a World Cup watch party.
Curry has struck again on the blog! Man, I never knew how much I loved curry until last year, and now I can't seem to stop eating it. Lately, I've only done Thai curry dishes, but I've already been told by a fellow reader to try out out Indian curries, so I'm on the look out for those.
It's been almost a month since I wrote my last blog post. I'm sorry :/ On a good note, Twin Sis and I have been beyond busy with work. On a bad note, I've neglected other things I enjoy doing like write to you all.
Y'all know I enjoy cooking. It never used to be one of my favorite things to do, but the older I get (and the second I moved out on my own), I learned I need to have some basic skills in order for myself and my waistline to survive adulthood.
J purchased a cooking class from Sur La Table for me for Christmas, and Saturday night we got to enjoy it together! I had gifted my mom a class we did together a few years ago and we had a blast, so I was very excited that J and I could experience one together.
