Hi, guys! Sorry about the lack of blog posts today. I’ve had a busy day!
I started writing my BOOK this morning ( 😯 ), and then I went to NuVal for a couple of hours, and then drove an hour to the PriceChopper in Marlborough to see the NuVal scores up close and personal, which was SO COOL! I mean, I’ve been living and breathing NuVal for the last couple of months, so it was really neat to see system in action!
Long story short, I didn’t snap photos of breakfast or lunch today, so I’m skipping right to dinner. I’m sure you were entertained by all of the giveaways, right? 😉
Tonight’s dinner was another wonderful recipe from Real Simple: Pasta With Brie, Mushrooms, and Arugula.
This brie was awesome! 😀
A big hunk of Scharffen Berger dark chocolate is for dessert! 😉
Cookie Countdown for the Troops
Allrecipes recently kicked-off its first annual Cookie Countdown for the Troops!
Allrecipes is encouraging home cooks to nominate a member of the US Armed Forces serving abroad through its Allrecipes blog, Facebook fan page or Twitter.com account. Each day from today through Dec. 25, the Allrecipes team will bake four dozen holiday cookies and send them to a member of the Armed Forces serving abroad.
I love this idea!
