Boy has this been a funfilled, busy week! Monday night was our Chrsitmas with our dad and we all went out to eat. My dad got me and Drew a new dining room table and gorgeous zebra chairs! I love them! Drew is not as fond of the chairs as I am but, does his opinion really matter. : )
Tuesday night me and my sisters, my mom and our best friend Jessica got together for our Christmas Sushi/Wine dinner. We all brought an accessory and drew names. Me, Nicole, Mom, and Jessica all opened our gorgeous accessories and were so excited and then Rachel opened hers. Rachel drew Jessica’s name and Jessica pulled a prank on Rachel. When Rachel opened her gift she found a santa bell necklace and Santa earrings! : ) Rachel immediately yelled “You screwed me!” It was so hilarious, then Jessica pulled out the real gift. After sushi we all went to Ruth Chris to have dessert and our favorite drink, a strawberry lemonade martini….SO yummy! We talked about our men and laughed all night and had an absolute fabulous night!

Last night was Kitchen Queens and I made some very yummy oreo truffles! I tweaked the recipe a tad and used the Candy Cane Oreos since i am a lover of peppermint : ) Here is the recipe.
1 pkg of oreos
1 pkg of Milk Chocolate morsals
1 pkg of white chocolate
1 80z pkg of cream cheese
1/4 tsp of vanilla
Using a food proccesor, crush the oreos. Mix the cream cheese and oreos till blended throughly. Add the vanilla and blend. Roll the cream cheese/oreo mixture into approx 40 balls and place on sheet of wax paper. Refrigerate for 45 min. Melt the milk chocolate and roll the balls in the chocolate and place back on the wax paper. (use a slotted spoon) After all the balls are coated in milk chocolate, melt the white chocolate and drizzle across all the truffles. Refrigerate for 45 min and serve! : )
Here are a few pics from Kitchen Queens! : )
