About a week ago, Drew and I decided to cook dinner. I was nervous about it because the last thing I cooked turned out HORRIBLE! I was inspired to start cooking after watching the movie Julie and Julia (which everyone should go see). It was a pasta bolognese that got a million good reviews on food network and I managed to mess it up. I'm not sure what I did wrong other than forget to add garlic, but it was the most tasteless pasta I have ever tasted! It's such a bummer to make all that food and spend all that money and then not like it. Anyway, we chose to make something called Country French Chicken, with a side of tomato feta salad and some sugar snap peas. It was delicious! Here's what it looked like:

I had found this wine at the grocery store called cupcake and I just haaadd to try it! So I got cupcake wine and Drew found a wine called Red Bicyclette so he got that! (Drew works at a Bicycle store). That was pretty funny to me... we were drinking our work places!

So the dinner turned out to be a success! (even though Drew is already thinking up ways to make it better). It was fun and it has inspired me to cook more. I just got the Cooking Light cookbook and I have already been cooking from it! It's fabulous!

OH... and here's what Drew looks like when he eats Country French Chicken hahaha
