Hey everyone. Hope you all had a good weekend. NYC finally got a smattering of snow and mighty winds. Both were only for a day. Supposedly we will have more of both though. Brrr. Niel and I did our usual errand running and cleaning. Had my parents over for dinner. We went international. For the appetizer started off in Italy with Giada De Laurentiis' Red Pepper Cheese Cake(savory with a hint of sweet). The main course was a French dish by Ina Garten, beef Bourguignonne and side was also by Ina Garten and also French, zucchini Gratin and dessert ended in Greece with a raspberry Cloufouti. The dessert was deceiving. You would think a dessert with fruit, and custard would be tasty but was a real disappointment. But it did look pretty. My favorite dish and the most surprising was the Red Pepper Cheese Cake. I wasn't sure about this particular sweet and savory combo, but it was good. Next time I will try red pepper jelly for the topping instead of apricot jelly.

We also caught up on our new favorite show Battle Star Galactica. Never thought that would happen. Liking the show and catching up. LOL. Psych also came back to TV woo hoo! Whoever watches Ugly Betty did you have a what the hell moment during the last scene? I like being kept on my toes though. I get bored when I can figure out a show. I seriously thought it was going to go another way. Heroes and Studio 60 is back on tonight! Woo hoo!! I know I am late but did anyone watch the Golden Globes? What the hell is wrong with Angelina Jolie and Maria Menounus? Otherwise I like the show in general. Lots of drunk celebrities dressed up not caring if they are appear drunk. Looking forward to the Academy Awards and Grammy's.

We also did some minor furniture rearranging by moving the loveseat away from the radiator near our living room windows to ensure maximum heat for the room. We like the loveseat in front of the windows but we figure for the winter warmth wins over style. Plus Niel boarded up the windows and the air conditioner in the bedroom also for warmth. It helped. Plus Niel found a Chinese take out place that sells better Lo Mein than our usual place.

My shop is also finally up! Thanks to Niel for all the help!

Wow...I wanna come over to your house for dinner!!!!

Yeah, BETTY...was scratching my head at who she was. Is that the one that had the affair with the Rich Dad? But Rebecca Rmnjin is so tall. You can't "plastic surgery" height. So...who is she?
