I've missed my friend so much! She's been staying with her MIL and helping as she recovers from a stroke. So imagine my surprise when Leigh agreed to a little birthday celebration lunch at a local Italian Restaurant (We both love pasta!)! I was so excited to see her!!
Alise was so excited to be included as "one of the girls." She couldn't wait for Leigh to get to the restaurant!
Here's a pic of our FREE dessert! Complete with three cherries and three spoons! It was SO yummy and just perfect for three chocolate lovin' girls!
Leigh got me the Pioneer Woman's cookbook for Christmas. SO excited to get it!! I've nearly ear marked every recipe in the book to try, so if you don't have it, RUN to your nearest book store and get it! Now. Do not pass GO. Do not collect $200.
Speaking of recipes, I will be posting my Devil's Food Cake recipe as well as another new favorite holiday casserole that I made for the first time this year. It was so yummy! I like to post my recipes on my blog so if I can't find my written copies, I know they're on my blog, too.
I am off work this week, so stay tuned for all the things that Alise and I will be doing! I see movies, skating, more time with Cousin Brooklyn, and a New Year's Eve party with some "scary" friends in our future. I can't wait!
