Well, what a whirlwind of a weekend! It started out by Friday being a "snowday" so instead of having a regular two-day weekend it ended up being a three-day weekend...hey, that's ok, I'll take it. Elise took up the kitchen on Saturday ~ Superbowl Eve. She made her Mardi-Gras King Cake and her Bruschetta bread ~ all from scratch. When she got done, I went in and made yet ANOTHER Bavarian Raspberry Cream Pie for guess who? (See original pie entry in January 2010). Around mid-night I had just gotten to bed and then decided to put the pork meat and sauce in the crockpot. I'm sooooo glad I did, as it was so tender and delicious. Everything we planned for we made so all in all in was a success. I believe I looked forward to the game as much as I did the food. Company arrived just before the game started and I couldn't get the food on the table fast enough. What a thrill it was to see the Saints win like I wanted them to!! Congratulations WHO DAT Nation!! :) May the world now SEE your fight, your struggle, your hope and redemption. ~ I most definitely savored my three-day weekend :) (I will post all the recipes for these dishes first chance I get).
