A Weekend Feast


I’m just getting busier and busier with every passing weekend. I am so thankful for all of the help I got last weekend. Chris was at a work retreat in Palm Springs, so I was flying solo with Penelope. I was a little frazzled at the thought of taking care of Penelope and cooking for a baby shower, and thankfully some really generous friends stepped in and helped with babysitting. I can’t describe how endebted I am to their help. Seriously. I’m truly grateful for such sweet friends.

I had a lot of fun “catering” (I hesitate to call it that, but I guess that’s what it was) this last weekend for a friend. I was really happy with how all of the food tied together and of course, tasted!

I made Natalee’s Curried Chicken and Squash Soup and Pesto Pea Salad (thanks, Leah, for the recipe!)

Spinach Dip and Bee’s Lemonwater

and topped off the meal with a Custard-Style Cinnamon Ice Cream.

Now that I survived last weekend, just two more months of busy weekends to go!

      You mentioned that you have two more months of busy weekends. What is going on in the next two months? Were you referring to the holidays?

      The curried soup is easy!

      So, between holiday parties, baby showers (like a bazillion of those), bookbinding and watercolor classes and Christmas presents; I’ve got a very long ‘to do’ list!! I’m really looking forward to January when I can relax and focus on posting about all of it!!
