A few months back I got into a baking mood and decided to start baking bread, which is odd because J and I hardly ever eat bread at home. Because of this, I go weeks without buying bread at the store, so when either of us ever do get a hankering for a sandwich, we have nothing to put it on!
Why I haven’t shared this recipe on the blog yet is beyond me. It has been one of our go-to’s whenever we are stumped with what to make for dinner. The recipe calls for basic ingredients you should always have in your pantry, that’s why it’s such a great dish to make, especially if you haven’t been to the grocery store in a while.
Twin Sis and I enjoy cooking, although that hasn’t always been the case… at least for me. In college we lived together in a townhome, and, most nights we either picked up food, or Twin Sis handled the meal while I helped.
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.
