Last week was rough...getting back into the swing of things after a few days away + a busy schedule left blogging at the bottom at the to-do list. :P I'm back with a vengeance today though and have lots of things to share! ;)
First up, I was so fortunate to be invited to a special coffee blogger event by Nescafe Dolce Gusto. Last Monday night, we were treated to a fabulous evening with some delicious appetizers and dessert from Restaurant BT. The food was divine!! On the menu were Fresh Rolls, Vietnamese Spring Rolls, Octopus Carpacio (my first time eating octopus...it was good!), Vegetarian Samosas (these were my fave...yum!), and Crustacean Bisque. The desserts were equally amazing...the Toasted Coconut ice cream was my favorite! Mmmm!! We finished off the meal with some delicious coffee made from the new Genio machine. There were lots of flavors to choose from, but I chose the caramel. I added just a touch of cream and sugar and it was just perfect. To be honest, I'm not much of a coffee drinker, but I could definitely drink coffee like this. It was delish! Next time, I'll be sure to drink decaf at 8pm instead though...lol...could NOT fall asleep when I got home. ;)
On it's way to me is this cute little single serve coffee maker...Tom is stoked that they have an iced tea capsule and the boys are stalking the UPS man because they want to make hot chocolate! ;) I'm anxious to try the Mocha capsule myself. This little machine was so super easy to use and fast...we can't wait to try it out at home! Thanks for a great evening Nescafe Dolce Gusto!!
Next up, I NEED to get back on track with Menu Monday. I've been in a bit of a cooking rut again lately...why does that happen every few months? ugh. I've been menu planning, but not menu MAKING. lol. We'll be at home at least 3 nights this week though, so I'm committing to making 3 new meals...fingers crossed ;)
Monday- PW's Lasagna (our fave!)
Tuesday- Crock Pot Beef Stroganoff
Wedneday- Tilapia (we never ended up having this last week)
Oh, I made this PW past salad over the weekend and it was a hit...definitely will be making it again. Yum!
Okay, that's it for today...gotta make the most of my time while both boys are at school...still getting used to this no kids during the day thing ;) I'll be back later today with some Studio Calico Field Guide sneaks...Happy Monday, friends!!
