My friend Laura is a fantastic cook and we were lucky to get invited over to her house last night for dinner. She made salad, salmon, couscous, and a Bailey’s Chocolate Cake. OMG. So good. (and now OMG is totally in the dictionary, so…)
Naturally this picture doesn’t do it justice. But it was one of the greatest things I had ever eaten. Three layers of cake, ganache, icing, chocolate shavings on top…*drools* Thanks Laura! You’re the best!!
Laura, admiring her masterpiece..
Chris didn’t want me to take the picture until he had his classic “drinking” pose…but I showed him!
Oh, and here’s another picture from the weekend. Saturday night (after a four hour nap, trying to recover from the half-marathon I ran) we went to the Chamber Project St Louis concert at the Chapel. It was snowing by then, so the boys had a little snowball fight.
After the concert (which was fantastic, though sparsely attended, most likely due to the snow) we hit up the Fountain on Locust where I had a “grasshopper” which was a minty ice cream martini, and a spinach salad…yum!
Overall it was a great weekend! (Yes, I’m aware it’s Monday night, not Sunday night…)
Here’s a little bit of Star Wars/CSI: Miami humor I found online:
On the docket for this week: LORD OF THE RINGS WITH LIVE ORCHESTRA!!!!!!!! (yes, I’m rather excited).
