I am truly reaping the benefits of living in the same time zone as The Princess. Case in point - this weekend, we got to have a mother/daughter slumber party. With Hubby away, The Princess came over in the afternoon with her little ditty bag. First on the agenda was a movie that neither of us had heard of but enjoyed very much. We stopped here to pick up some sushi and noodles on the way home.
Daisy is very much 'one of the girls' and joined us while we junked out on tv and snacks - chocolates for the humans and puppy biscuits for furry one. We slept in a little on Sunday, had a nice breakfast before The Princess had to get going. Laundry waits for no one.
When Hubby arrived home in the afternoon, we watched the first episode of The Sandwich King on The Food Network. Jeff Mauro (The Sandwich King) is the latest winner of The Next Food Network Star which we had kept up all summer long. Since we had cheered for Jeff to win, we made sure to not miss his show. I think this season they really picked a winner. For the first time, we knew we would be trying the recipes right away.
Tonight's dinner Mortadella and Fig Focaccianini*.
I used a prepared fig spread that I already had on hand and provolone cheese. Delish! The greens on the plate are baked kale chips*. Another success but if you try the recipe, don't make them ahead. They lost some of their crispness in the bowl after a couple of hours.
Now that the kitchen is cleaned up, it's time to settle in for the night and take a few stitches in something.
