Saturday Morning Walkers - December 25, 2006

Ho! Ho! Ho! everyone!

We're having a bit of a lull in the festivites at our house so I thought I would put my feet up and catch up with all of you. Hope you're all enjoying the holidays and taking time to relax and enjoy the season. It has been a wild and crazy weather week here and much focus on our relatives getting in or out of town. We're disappointed that Jeff couldn't get here but we still have quite a full house and Libby's new puppy Violet is arriving this evening. Our Saturday morning walk turned out to be a Saturday morning coffee date - I'm sorry I missed you all.

Last night we had our traditional Cincinnati Chili with a twist - instead of ground beef, we used ground dark meat turkey - turned out great!
See the recipe posted on my November 5 blog.

Tonight, we're having roast tenderloin of beef with a port wine and shitake mushroom sauce (Janet has made this sauce and loves it)
and Giada' De Laurentiis Roman Style Chicken and Roasted Potatoes and Onions (see both recipes posted on my September 24 blog.

Tomorrow night, no cooking for me - we'll be having dinner at Brasserie TenTen - one of our favorite places in Boulder -

Jacob and I did a bit of baking earlier in the week and turned out some wonderfully decorated Hanukah cookies along with my rugulah, biscotti and chocolate whoppers (the best chocolate cookie ever!) - chocolate whoppers,,FOOD_9936_28255,00.html?rsrc=search - chocolate chip anise biscotti,,FOOD_9936_35322,00.html?rsrc=search - rugelach
- this recipe calls for raisins but we also made them with chocolate chips - Libby's preference

Not much time for reading this week but we did manage to get out to see Charlotte's Web on Thursday - we had the theater to ourselves. Jacob seemed a little bored by it but Jack, Jexy and I enjoyed it very much - it is such a wonderful story.

Let's hope that the weather will cooperate with us this coming Saturday and we can get out for a walk - I sure will need it by then!

Enjoy the week!
