Well, two more hours before I head over to our friends' house for dinner. The kid flunked a social studies test. Not cool, especially because he came home all last week "not having any homework". He is grounded from the computer and all cartoons for at least a week, longer if I don't see improvements on an effort to study. Gosh, I'm mean. lol...
So, I decided to bring a chocolate pecan crostata. Giada has an awesome recipe for one on the Food Network if you ever want to make one. I really love their website. As soon as I see something on the Food Network Channel I want to try, I go directly to the website and download the recipe. That is where the onion and mushroom gravy came from last night. I could make something different every night if I had the time.
Today, I was at the Asian food store and I bought a plantain. I have never actually eaten one of these before, but once again, I saw it made on the food channel, so I have to see if I can make something good out of it. I am going to experiment with it tomorrow. If you have any loved recipes for the plantain, do share.
Well, I am going to try and fit in a load of laundry before we leave this evening. I might try and update on how the dinner went this evening, but if not, I will catch you all tomorrow. Have a great night!
