For me, the best way to spend my weekend is cooking. Couple that with cooking for other people, and you have one happy KK.
This, just happens to be one of those weekends.
Officially known as "catch up on all the TV we missed all week long" night. It was freezing out, so comfort food was the way to go.
Mini rigatonis with creamy pumpkin sauce.
That was paired with a few glasses of red wine.
We had some friends over for dinner.
Hot artichoke dip with pita chips
NY Strip with red wine reduction sauce
Cheddar and chive twice baked potatoes
Sauteed mushrooms with red wine
Gingerbread and pumpkin trifle (served up in individual martini glasses)
For me, the night started out with a hot and dirty martini, then ended with many glasses of yummy wines from Portugal.
Today is my Grandmother's birthday, so I'm cooking her favorites for dinner with my mom.
Mussels in white wine sauce
Calamari and shrimp in red sauce over angel hair
Cheesy garlic bread
With wine, wine and more wine.
Diet and detox!
