Cooking Club

Well I am finally back on the blog (being ridiculed while off the blog was intense) with a little bit of fun to share. Last night Jon and I went to "cooking club". Really, it is just a glorified eating club at this point ....but we have big dreams. Last Night's menu was selected by Judy. Here is a little recap:

Portobello Stuffed with Corn and Mushrooms
Roasted Tomato Soup
Chicken Paillard with Creamy Parmesan Salad
Molton Chocolate Cakes with Raspberry Sauce

Dinner was hosted at our friends Benton and Judy's home and attended by us and two other couples. Each couple brought and prepared a course. Here are just a few fun pics from our fun and the super tasty food.

I was assigned to take a whack at some chicken breasts. It was my punishment for wearing such an unflattering shirt :)

Dinner is served. Yum. All of it was so delicious.

It was a great evening with friends.(Don, Benton and Chris, sorry your pictures didn't make the cut...but we enjoyed your company none the less) So much fun to be together, chatting, cooking and enjoying each others company. Another dinner is just weeks away because this is the group of people that Jon and I are headed to Italy with in September 2011. But no worries we are already gathering, planning and eating (of course).
