Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

I think we are now scrapping Bordeaux/Marseilles for Shanghai and Beijing for May!! Eek!

And tonight I am making Stuffed mushrooms and roasted brussel sprouts. I skipped the balsamic that was in my plan, but used the zucchini and onions I cut the other day. Also got rid of some feta that was hanging out.

ZOMG! This is such a plating/ picture fail and it is soooooo effing good. Sad. This is going on rotation. Don’t skip the Sundried tomatoes. Srsly!

Black Bean Soup with Bonus Green Chile Cornbread

I think I am getting a cold. If I do I am screwed. The husband has a cold and I am trying to stave off mine since my event is on Wednesday and I don`t have time to be sick. I was able to at least finally get my table seating done for the event. It takes forever to seat 300 guests and block it out keeping mindful that one wrong table could cost me donations during the live pledge.

So yesterday I finally had to break down and go in to grab a dress. The six dresses that I had shipped from Shopbop.com just all were fails. Note to Diane Von Furstenberg, your quality is in the can for Fall 2011. So while getting my hair did, I trolled Barney`s Coop online, and while it was snow/slushing(?!?!), I figured, at least the soho store would be empty, so armed with the knowledge that there were 10 promising items on their website, I broke down and went in. Yes, it was empty, though would it kill them to stock a size 6 at the soho store? I`m 5`9, that is not a complete fatty, jeez. I walked out with one dress and waiting for another that was at the Chelsea location to be fedexed over to me. Why that can`t messenger it, I have no clue.

So I have a seating chart done, a dress, my nails are now did and I am trying not to get a cold. Time to make a black bean soup. This one`s kinda spicy cuz I like spicy and I`m hoping to kill the germs.
