I've been in Vegas for half a week now. I don't know how anyone could stand to be here all summer. I'm sure it doesn't help that I'm fighting some mystery ailment...
Sunday was the annual house party. I am a fan of our house this year:
Select party pictures are on my facebook. It was a fun party and I had a great time decorating.
I was able to have some awesome time with Emily and get some needed shopping done. Brooching didn't go so well, but did get some other stuff done. Yesterday I made cheeseburger pie. Man I love that recipe. Pretty much everyone in the house seemed to like it as well.
Today I was a bit more creative and decided to try to make some bread pudding. I adore bread pudding, but I think it falls under the label of 'baking' and that is still very unfamiliar territory! I was really impressed with my results.
It's a William Sonoma Healthful cooking recipe, so it uses banana instead of cream, etc. I really enjoyed it. The sauce is a maple syrup and orange marmalade reduction with Cinnamon. It was very sweet, but complimented the bread pudding very well.
Tonight, pending me feeling better, I'm going to make some veggie lasagna. If I feel awful it may wait until tomorrow.
