What's For Dinner?
First up let me tell you that I have some guest bloggers lined up for next week! My mom and my best friend are coming up to help me celebrate my birthday! (And that's why I haven't been around much this week, I've been cleaning and getting ready to have some fun!) We're going to NYC on Sunday for the day and plan to spend the rest of the week hanging out and maybe seeing the sights around DC/Baltimore. So I'm taking the week off, but be sure to check back and see what my guest bloggers have in store for you!
Jamison is going to pick up dinner on the way home, because I still have a lot to do. He's getting a beef rice noodle dish, Lex will have edamame and rice and I'm having Schezuan chicken and crab rangoon.
What are you having?
Oh and don't forget...Come on over to Daffodil Lane and tell me your Top 5 Reasons to Organize a Get Together and you could win a $100 Visa gift card from BlogHer and Pepperidge Farm Baked Naturals Cheese Crisps! Also you can get a recipe for stuffed mushrooms too! Go here to find out how!
Who couldn't use a $100 Visa gift card?

Happy Birthday! You have my favorite month. :)
Glad to hear the stove/oven are in working order again. (They are, aren't they? Or are you waiting on "parts"?) While we could survive without our stove assuming it wasn't so horrible out that using the grill and the portable grill/camp stove wasn't out of the question, it sure wouldn't be pretty.
Tonight we are having red sauce and some sort of pasta, using the tag end of the homemade tomato sauce that I just got done canning. 3 bushels of tomatoes - 1 roma type and 2 who-knows-what big and juicy -- made just over 14 quarts of sauce. (There was some spoilage due to many factors, some of which I'll control for next year.) I'm willing to believe that I didn't boil all of it down *quite* enough, but that is easy to remedy on the cooking end. At any rate, it should give us enough tomato puree to get us through red sauce and tomato soup until tomato season next year.
Also, some foccacia (sp?) from the local bread store, and some salad since we have lettuce and spinach that simply have to be used. I'll use up the last of the ball of fresh mozzarella that I have, and maybe some of the little grape tomatoes from my garden.

Have a happy, happy birthday! It's so funny, I've been to New Zealand 4 times (for every baby that my sister has), Jamaica twice (my mom was stationed there from the Peace Corps) but never to Hawaii, Florida, or New York. I hope you end up in Cash Cab!!!! Tonight I'm going to make a quick and easy chicken and leeks dish.
