Dinner and Moondance

You know, like dinner and movie??? No?? Oh well...

First up, the dinner:

The appetizer

We had a little appetizer while we cook dinner. Dinner consist of the Grown Up Mac & Cheese, Romano Chicken, Blanched Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Garlic Bread. The Grown Up Mac and Cheese uses Fettuccini, but I had Penne on hand so there is no reason to go and buy more pasta. Also, instead of creme fraiche, I used 8 oz of neufchatel cheese because I can't find any creme fraiche in Stop and Shop - yes, I know, I can't believe it either! I mean I used creme fraiche up in Troy and PriceChopper there had it back then!!! The Chicken Recipe called for Parmesan Cheese, but I already had grated Romano at home, so I used that instead. The whole dinner was just SO GOOD. YUM. And we had fun making it too.

Now the stole:

I'm loving the pattern! Once I got passed the cast on, the whole thing came together very quickly. I can't wait to see how soon I can finish this!

That mac and cheese sounds yummy! Yum, yum, yum (maybe I should have had a bigger lunch?)

That is gorgeous. I am happy that I didn't give a lacy scarf for present. I couldn't do something like this!!!

Yumm! Your dinner looks so good : )

I also love your stole - what a neat pattern! It's going to be so beautiful. By the way, your bi-color Irish Hiking Scarf looks so warm and cozy, and I think the color change adds interest. It's so nice to finish things up, too!

P.S. I do really like the Julia Child colorway (at least in the Helene yarn). I think it's just lovely! You can see a better picture of it here:
