As you may recall, the first week of February was dedicated to The Quest for a Million Miniature Onesies. I was scanning through my phone and found this photo of some of the younger guests that I spotted wearing the onesies as I walked out the door. If I had any money left, I would have given it to them!
Andy and I celebrated Valentine’s Day by recreating a bit of deliciousness from our honeymoon.
He made French Onion Soup using a recipe from the Bouchon Cookbook.
I made a chocolate tart from the Mustard Grill cookbook.
And we enjoyed a bottle of my favorite wine in my limited world, Silver Oak, which we received as a housewarming gift from Aunt Ruth.
Both dishes were all-day undertakings, so we lunched on frozen pizza and Cokes from Gene’s Sausage Shop. Very gourmet, no?
If I would have blogged about this sooner, I might have had something poignant to say about taking on the works of masters. But all that I can think of at this point is that Onion Goggles REALLY DO WORK.
I also took on my first “real” sewing project in February – a table runner made from Purdue fabric.
TOTAL CHEESE, I know, but it was all in good fun for a dinner with my friends from college.
I didn’t have time to run out for flowers on the day of the party (and Andy always seems to overlook that item no matter where I place it on the grocery list), so Andy improvised our centerpiece.
I have no idea what Jay Cutler has to do with Purdue. I think that he did it because our friends had Drew
Brees and Kyle Orton figurines as the place settings at a dinner party in 2009. I hate to discourage him when he does anything party-related, so I let him have it.
