Aaron, Colin, Amy and I trudged through the falling snow to Mike & Amy's house, where we had a fabulous dinner with new friends Nick & Regan. Pasta with lobster, homemade bread, prosciutto-wrapped asparagus (not pictured) -- all delicious. And Colin put together chocolate strawberry margarita shots. He hollowed out the strawberries, dipped them in salted chocolate, and filled them with tequila and triple sec. And wine. So much wine...
SaturdayAfter all that wine, it was a pretty lazy day. We watched the USA/Russia hockey game, napped a bit, and watched various movies, including Nightshift, Pitch Perfect and Apollo 13. Then we went to our neighborhood's annual Chili Cook-off, hosted by Angie & Eric.
There were 15 chilis to taste and judge. Oof! Categories were Best Traditional, Best Spicy, Best Unique, Best Vegetarian and Best in Show. The winners are in the bottom left picture. Aaron and I did not make chili this year (15 entries are plenty!).
SundayChurch in the morning, then laundry and more Olympics watching. Aaron made his famous gumbo, and we attempted to watch Captain Phillips on demand. We got about halfway through it but it took so long to download and the buffering got annoying so we'll finish watching it tonight.
Today marks my 250th post! In honor of that occasion, I'm having my first giveaway. It's open to US and Canada and will run through Gwensday at 11:59 pm. Good luck (and I hope I set this up right)!
