Odds and Ends

2/17/12

We had a lot going on this week and a few dinners out, which means my kitchen was mostly abandoned.  So here are a few random thoughts and photos to keep the blog rolling...


Carson took me out for a Valentine's dinner at Melisse.  I died.  We both agreed it was probably the best meal that has ever passed our lips.  The photo above was just one of the many courses, a soft poached egg with caviar and puff pastry.  Paired with some ridiculous champagne to wash it down.  
Beacoup bucks, but worth it on a special, SPECIAL occasion.   


That is a picture of my mom, from back in the day, adoringly staring at a slab of meat (turkey drumstick I think).  Possibly talking to it a little bit?  I am her daughter.  


Why does it have to look like that this month?  Why why WHY?


Bought this at Williams-Sonoma this week (thanks Mom for the gift card!).  It doubles as a punch bowl!  But right now is housing leftover these.  


Getting inspired for Jack's upcoming birthday party here.  
If anyone has ideas for me I'd gladly hear them!  
Have glorious weekends.

Hostess With The Mostess. Best party blog, in my humble opinion. I happen to know a great party planner who could probably help you come up with some really neat-O ideas. Want me to send you her contact info? :)
