Welcome to My Blog - Valentine's Day 2009

I confess, I'm a blogaholic and I finally decided to start a blog myself. I'm using this blog to share ideas, images, recipes, advice, new finds, anything that inspires me. It's also a scrapbook of sorts for myself. This will save the countless pieces of paper I tear out of magazines and ideas scribbled on multiple notepads and post-in notes that I have left around the house.

Bare with me (and I hope you stick it out) as I experiment with the layout of this blog. So here goes nothing. Welcome to Kate's Place!

Valentine's Day 2009
To start The Husband tore his ACL and MCL a couple of weeks ago. He had surgery on Monday, which left Valentine's dinner up in the air. I stumbled across a great idea when I went to Pinon Market and Cafe for lunch a few weeks back. They had a Valentine's Dinner for Two that you can pick-up and all you had to do was reheat. And it was packaged to perfection. What a fabulous idea! Well, the dinner didn't disappoint.

Here was the menu:
Tomato and Fennel Bisque
Arugula, Goat Cheese, and Roasted Beet Salad
Pan-Seared Salmon w/ White Bean Puree & Wilted Spinach
Buttered Vegetable Saute
Buttermilk Cloverleaf Rolls
Chocolate Whopper Cookies w/ Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

I enjoyed staying home and not fighting the crowds. I just might make this a traditional from now on.
