A couple of weeks ago, I was wondering if my amaryllis bulbs were going to bloom in time for Christmas.
And here we are!
We traveled to Connecticut for Christmas, to my brother's house. You may remember my post a few months ago , where I showed a clip from ConnecticutStyle featuring his restaurant.
Christmas dinner started off with shrimp & lobster, and ended with cannoli cake. With a lot of good stuff in between.
My kids were eagerly anticipating our trip to Connecticut because my brother has four dogs.
I was unable to corral them into a group shot on Christmas, so here's an archive photo from this summer when Hounder (front and center) was a puppy. All of these dogs are rescues, even the pure-bred Weimaraner.
The cast of characters:
Simba (a.k.a. "old man"), who will be 15 next month.
Hounder, the 70-lb puppy, 8 months old.
Oklee, 5 years old, eyeing one of Mrs. Dog's treats .
Unfortunately, I was unable to get a good photo of 13-year-old Mrs. Dog (a.k.a. "girlfriend"). You can see her in the group photo, she's the black-and-tan dog on the far left.
Today's recipe is asparagus wrapped in prosciutto and mozzarella. It's one of the side dishes I prepared for my Christmas Eve party.
But before I give you the recipe, I need to show you what Erin's been up to lately:
Aren't they cute?
She made them for our Christmas Eve party.
A double-batch of rice krispy treats, rolled into balls and decorated with oreos, mini reeses cups and pull-apart twizzlers.
The snowman theme continued yesterday, when her BFF Abby came over and they made this cake.
