Well, I know I said I was going to post the recipes for the BBQ and the chicken with butternut squash, but I actually don’t really remember what all I did, and didn’t take notes. So, tough shit to the four people who read this blog and wanted the recipe. Now, on the bigger and better things: I got a badass camera. Well. Not so much got as found, but it was at my house, and I’m claiming it.* It’s a canon rebel XT and looks like a total mom camera. So for all of you idiots asking me when I want to pop out a Crawdad, the answer is not now, but at least I have the mom cam to fill in for the time being. Also, I’m not a huge fan of babies, but that is a story for another day, and a few more glasses of cab.
So, tonight I am having a few hoes over for dinner, so I’ve got to be on my A-game. Even though I have an incredibly demanding job where I work in a high stress office from 8-5 (ha), I have managed to waste half my day prepping for the night ahead. For most people, a girls dinner would consist of a light salad, probably something with Quinoa, and fish. Well, the fish in Midland smells weird, and I’m fresh out of quinoa, so I guess the girls will have to settle for:
|Left to right:
Basil from my garden, heirloom tomatoes (the uglier the better),
parmesan, garlic, toasted pine nuts, store bought basil
-Toasted orecchiette with fresh pesto (basil from my garden), with Italian sausage
-Hatch chili cheese bread
-Chop salad with a light Greek vinaigrette, diced tomatoes, peppers, peppered salami and shaved parmesan
|Close up of the tastiest pesto|
-Sour cream chocolate chip Bundt cake sprinkled with powdered sugar.
Once I write the recipe down, I will show you how to go from THIS
