How was your weekend? Did you have good weather?
Ours was busy and with a wide variety of enjoyments. Besides some time on the ballroom floor, We spent Saturday preparing to host our dinner group featuring recipes from The Barefoot Contessa (Ina Garten). Through the years, we eat very well, and Saturday night was not an exception. Here’s our courses and recipes.
- Tomato Crostini with Whipped Feta, Rosemary Roasted Cashews
- Bibb Salad with Basil Green Goddess Dressing
- Roasted Shrimp Orzo with Sauteed Asparagus and Snap Peas
- Chocolate Chunk Blondies with a Chocolate-Grand Marnier Sauce
Sunday was such a beautiful day, we had to do something outside. We started at Goetta Fest along the river on the Kentucky side. (Goetta will be a future post of its own.) We walked to the Ohio side and returned by a different bridge. Then we board the amphibious vehicle for the fun and informative Duck Tour.
On our way home, first we stopped at the casino to enter the upcoming Million Dollar drawing then, it was off to Graeter’s to celebrate Chocolate Chip Day!!!
