KC Girls Weekend: the food
8-17-09 bon apetite brain
Dinner time finally arrives about 9:00PM!
This meal is one of the best meals I have EVER had!
The menu was:
Roasted Pear Salad
Turkey Roulade Stuffed with Cranberries and Sausage Stuffing
Sweet Potato Sticks
Green Beans with Pine Nuts (that never left the microwave)...darn!
Berries and Cream with Shortbread- Berries were soaked in Grand Marnier
The salad alone was enough to fill me up, but I kept eating like it was Thanksgiving!
The stuffing is to die for!
I'm only sorry I don't have a picture of dessert.... I watched Molly make it earlier, but by the time dessert was served- around midnight, I had put my camera way. I was too tired and my stomach was too stuffed to truly enjoy it.... But it was wonderful from what I remember.
I was happy to see Kelley enjoying herself. Kelley is a wife and mother of three, and is the type (like my sister), who puts herself last. I know it was a struggle for Kelley to even get away from home for 28 hours.... but I know it was good for her!
I was first to head to bed about 1:00AM... after all, I needed my beauty sleep and we had an appointment for a yoga class at 9:00AM!
too be continued......
