Feaston Christmas

The last several days have been filled with drinks, delicious food (courtesy of The Cashtown and Doubleday inns) and lots of family time. Yesterday we spent the day at home, mostly doing some odds and ends (like laundry), but we were able to sit down for a really awesome breakfast using some of the things we picked up as gifts. We had some fresh squeezed orange juice (our new addiction), 100 percent Kona Coffee and breakfast casserole from the Doubleday.  We ate it on the couch. Considering the last couple of days — we traveled all over half of Pennsylvania — we needed some slow time. Here are some photos from our travels. Check them out.

Old Man Winter

Over the weekend we got hit with a snow storm. Old Man Winter really stuck it to us with this one. By the time he was finished, he dropped about 8 inches of snow in Easton, Pa. We had to shovel out twice: Saturday night and Sunday morning. The morning job was harder because the snow was wet. Annnnd, JUST when we finished, the frickin’ plow came around. Thanks for nothing. See a snow pic.

Spinach and Tortellini Salad

OK, OK, so we didn’t actually come up with this recipe. This is one my sister made for my parents and I like a long time ago. Since we’re insisting on eating more vegetables, I was thinking about this and thought it would make a good light dinner.

What we have is cheese tortellini served with spinach, Parmesan cheese and Catalina dressing.

Full of vitamins and goodness. It's vegetarian ... not even any beef broth in it.

Feaston’s Salsa Soup

Last week Feaston decided that we eat too much meat. We’re planning/hoping to live a long time, so we’re adding more vegetables to our diet.

So we’ve been scouring our cookbooks for vegetarian recipes. Fannie Farmer delivered our inspiration. But then we fixed it right. Sorry Fannie. Yours wasn’t complete.

We made some changes and now this is full of win. Huzzah!

One screw up changed the recipe for the better. And now that's just the way it is.

I’m Confused

A week ago in the Lehigh Valley we were literally freezing our butts off. Cold, snow, wind, ice, etc.

This week? Well, yesterday it was 54 degrees. Al Gore might be on to something after all. But we’ll talk about that come February. See what last week looked like.

Feaston’s Perfect Pizza

Feaston has discovered the perfect pizza recipe. We combined a bunch of Feaston signature ingredients to make our pie. You might recognize some of them — Fresh mozzarella, shallots and roasted red peppers — from previous recipes.

Really, we were in heaven. Plus, this was one of those homemade pizzas that came out of the oven in perfect time. The crust was crunchy, but soft, and the cheese was all melty.

We really don't need to try anymore pitza recipes. But we will, don't worry.
