Saturday evening we hosted a Chocolate and Wine event for the wine club. I made the cocoa rubbed pork tenderloin which was delicious, but there were some wonderful dishes. Triple creme brie with chocolate wafers I think was my favorite.
Yesterday we had both sets of parents over and headed out for an early dinner at The Cheesecake Factory. Both of our mothers had not been there before so it was on their list to try. They have such a gigantic menu you really can't go wrong.
This week, I am hoping will be a little better with work, and I am hoping to not have to change plans due to work. But we do have a full week at work as well.
Plans - Home, Laundry, Catch up on DVR
Dinner - Boston Pork Butt' with rub in Crock Pot (I mixed together dry mustard, sea salt, paprika, chili powder, granulated garlic, I put the rub on the pork and then put two teaspoons of liquid smoke in. It will cook for about 8 to 9 hours and we will have it with cole slaw and rolls and some baked beans.
Plans - Home
Dinner - Chili, it is supposed to be colder this week, this may be the last time I make this before the Fall.
Plans - JLM Volunteer Shift with the boy
Dinner - Trying to decide between one of three places since we will be back in my old 'hood
Plans - Murder Mystery Dinner Party to celebrate my birthday
Dinner - Not sure if I should do a sit down dinner or heavy appetizers yet. I have never done one of these before, but I have heard that it is easier for everyone to get the clues if we all seated together.
Plans - The boy to start working on the guest bathroom (we are two months behind on house projects) and I will start on the guest room and turning over closets.
Dinner - Nye's Polonaise in NE Mpls.
