Sami's Party Hint ~ Recipes for Leftovers ~ Mulled Wine


Good 42º cloudy with prospects of rain morning.


Yesterday was Sami's 5th birthday and Jen did a spectacular job on the party, as usual!
Pictures to follow .... probably a Smilebox. The theme was horses and Jen hired two ladies with a Shetland pony and a miniature pony for the kids to ride. They love it! Jen made stick ponies for all the kids, had certificates of adoption for each pony and child and they had a pony obstacle course! Also a horseshoe pinata! So, stand by for that. Will take me a while to organize the photos! AND, rain was predicted ... a storm moving in from the coast, but it didn't rain!!! Yeah! Well, until late last night!


For the past few days I have played with the leftovers I had from the couscous and vegetables.

 

I had some fake crab and sweet peppers....

 

So I cut up the peppers and sauteéd them with the fake crab, added the coucous veggie mix

 

and it was AWESOMELY good!!

 


THEN..... yesterday I took the leftovers of that and heated it, adding in some chicken stock, mushrooms, seasonings.... and had soup!

 

OMGOOD!!!!!

Tonight a new series starts... Red Widow. Read before you watch...
 
Also that new series, The Bible, with Roma Downey starts tonight too, I think.
All I know. Nuff said. The Bruise is watching me... (front paws crossed) ...
Then I set some wiring, ethernet cable, etc on the table and he thought they were toys for him. Bored with that so nap time!
