NTBMO dinner



I was doing some spring cleaning, going through the kitchen cabinets, fridge, etc that I have not been able to post at all. Finally got it all done on Monday then I got to baking pizzelles, whole wheat crackers and almond crisps. Due to the holy days, Hubby's on the road almost 6 hours a day this week so we decided to have a NTBMO dinner at our place. We invited our friend Ron who lives about 40 miles away to join us. Despite my full schedule, it was not really difficult as I decided to prepare entrees I can just bake in the oven overnight or leave in the crockpot till the morning. We had slow-roasted brisket, Hungarian goulash, chicken salad, mixed salad greens, buttered corn and green beans, fruits and ice cream for dessert. I planned on making a delicious mango cream pie I prepared two weeks ago but I did not find the fresh mangoes at the store so I just stopped by Braums and got Vanilla and Pistachio Almond Ice Cream. We had Steinberg Red Wine and Sparkling White Grape Juice we've been saving since October after a delightful wine tasting at Stone Hill Winery in Branson, MO. It was a no fuss dinner, surprisingly simple and easy to prepare. Maybe we'll host one again next year.

P.S. As I started posting pictures, I realized
I forgot to take a picture of the goulash! It's our new favorite beef dish and I will be making it again soon. Hubby got it from his colleagues at work during their cultural orientation. More on that later...
