Cooking is as much for me as is quilting . . though cleaning up after cooking is not so much fun. With Vince gone and Chad rarely home, there hasn’t been much cooking going on around here and I miss it.
There’s a wine that Chad and I both like, and I’m not much of a wine drinker. Chad had one bottle of it and we can only find it at Macadoodle’s and since this is what Macadoodle’s looks like now:
. . we decided to have a celebration and consume the last bottle of the wine. Nicole didn’t get off work til 9:00 p.m. so we planned for her to come here after work and just spend the night . . no drinking wine and driving though she didn’t like the wine. She’s not a drinker either. I fixed baked potatoes, spinach salad, had steaks ready to grill at 9:00 p.m. and we had our wine and talked about all the places we’re going to miss in Joplin. Chad is mostly going to miss Pizza by Stout. There was no place that I go a lot that was lost and since we’ll be leaving the area while there’s still so much destruction, I’ll always remember the tornado when I think of Joplin. Maybe we’ll plan to come back after it’s all rebuilt so I can get a new image in my head.
What’s a celebration without a Red Velvet Cake? It was nice to get out my mixer and my cake pans and make a cake!
It was very good but I don’t think I want dinner, wine and desert again at 9:30 p.m. any time soon!
