Notes on block: Tonight was an inadvertently epic feast night. I got the October issue of Cooking Light in the mail this week and immediately found some recipes that I wanted to eat. Since my in-laws were planning on coming to dinner tonight, I thought it would be a great opportunity to try those recipes. I started cooking at 2. We ate at 6. Holy cow! That was not the plan. But, it was really, really tasty. On the menu:
- Roasted Butternut Squash Risotto with Sugared Walnuts-- creamy, butternut squashy, cheesy goodness.
- Buttered Green Beans and Mushrooms-- best. green beans. ever.
- Roasted Breast of Chicken with Pinot Noir Sauce-- the sauce truly brought the chicken to a whole new level.
So, tonight after the boys went to bed, I just needed to sit. Costumes will have to wait another night.
In other news: Look at this pretty block! It is happy.
