Rock star!

G wanted to be a Rock star. Well, actually she just wanted to pick on the Guitar hero guitar!


i am setting up a reminder today! i want to remember to post more on my blog. That is my goal for 2008. So, now to think of what to blog! hmmmm.....

I made this great shrimp last night- my version of asian salt and pepper shrimp. it's ez peel shrimp in a batter of flour, salt, pepper, a little tony cachere's (for some heat) and beer (just enough to make the batter like pancake batter. once the shrimp is cooked in hot oil I ladled on a concoction of sauteed chives, jalapeno, and garlic with a touch more salt and pepper. it was soooo good!

Christmas recital

Giuliana had her Christmas recital last weekend and it was darling. All the girls danced to holiday songs. G enjoyed this costume more than last spring's costume as there were jingle bells attached to her skirt. Who wouldn't want jingle bells jingling while she walked!

The masquerade ball

Last night we went to Reuben's office CHristmas Party. IT was a masquerade ball at the Houston Natural Science Museum. We enjoyed the evening tasting all the unusual foods and seeing everyone having fun. There were a lot of people there! Aparently they invited everyone from the Houston area so there was at least a thousand people? Anyway, here we are, me in my dress I just bought mere hours earlier!

Fried snowflakes

Wanda gave me the recipe for fried snowflakes so we made one tonight. Fry one tortilla in butter then add honey, powdered sugar, and chocolate shavings if you have them. It was quite tasty!
