Cookbook club!9:54 AM
Last night was the first night I've been able to attend the Cookbook Club put on by some friends of mine and boy oh boy, what a treat!
I think this was the third month for it and I'm sorry I missed the first two. The food is incredible. Not the best thing to attend on the first day of deciding to start my healthy journey again but I knew that I was attending and had all intentions on eating small portions of everything. And that's exactly what I did.
I'll explain how it works a little. Each month we decide on a cooking blog or cook book and then each of us choose a recipe from it and bring it all together to make it a fantastic meal with wine and a lot of laughter. It's fantastic! Then we "vote" which recipe was the best and which ones we'd likely make again.
As I mentioned this was my first time attending but let me tell you, there was nothing there that I wouldn't make again. It was all amazing! Everything, including the chocolate brownie (I don't even really like chocolate) was incredible.
|Caramelized Onion goat cheese triangles|
|Cellophane noodle salad with roast pork|
|Black bean pumpkin soup|
|Asparagus, goat cheese and lemon pasta|
|Cauliflower and caramelized onion tart|
|Salted Caramel brownies |
|Caramel walnut upside down banana cake|
And now I'm off to figure out how to calculate my calorie intake from last night...hummm...this will prove interesting I'm sure!
