Cheers to the Holidays!
November 27, 2011

To say that Thanksgiving has come and gone – would be an understatement! I would be lying if I told you I was sick of thanksgiving-like food…I just came home and raided our leftovers for a quick & easy dinner.

I was prepared to show you lots of close-up pictures of Thanksgiving feasts I happily indulged in, including a football tailgate – but over the course of 4 days I could write a novel. So here are a few of my favorites – all delicious food and good times with the fam!

Got Pies? 🙂

~All the Stafford gals~

This is what our back stock room looked like on Black Friday - needless to say we had to stay energized for all the crazy midnight shoppers!


Stafford & Cushman Tailgate Party!

The boys!

The girls!

Now on to Christmas! Let me just tell you I AM READY. Last year, Stephen and I were laying by a pool in Thailand ~ drinking cocktails on Christmas day. Don’t get me wrong, I loved every minute of it…but that just means this year I am going all out for Christmas 🙂

Stephen seems to be excited too! 😉

Hope you had a great holiday weekend! Time to start recovering from my food coma before the next one hits!




Long Time No See!
March 26, 2011

Long time no see! I missed not blogging for a week…but I certainly did not stop taking pictures everywhere I went! We had a bad storm this past Monday and our internet at home has been out all week. So while I wish I could recap every “dressed to dish” detail, I’m afraid my post would be TOO long! The most exciting part of this past week was without a doubt my lunch on Thursday. My usual lunch consists of a pack of microwaveable noodles (my lunches are boring at work). But in an effort to celebrate a teacher’s birthday, there was basically a Thanksgiving feast for lunch.

A feast if I ever saw one! Definitely did not feel like going back to work afterwards!

My favorite part of the food spread? The cheese board! Too bad it’s not someone’s birthday everyday.


My contribution? FUDGE. Home-made Fudge was my mission this week and I think I succeeded 🙂

I made a dark chocolate & PB Fudge...and oh - my - goodness. Let's just say I've been at the gym everyday!

Since our internet was out, I had to wing it! Thankfully I remembered all the ingredients, but I’ll have to double check my measurements before I post the recipe.

My fudge had the privilege of accompanying some mouth watering croissants at the dessert table. I had the brilliant idea of putting some fudge inside a croissant which tasted amazing! After all was said and done, it’s now Saturday and I’m still trying to work off Thursday’s lunch.

Last but not least? The Birthday Cake!

This cake has been my reason for visiting the gym everyday...but SO worth it 🙂

I am so happy to be reconnected to the Cyber World after a week. I’ve been busy catching up with all my favorite bloggers! So after a week off from my beloved Dressed to Dish blog, I am thrilled to come back to my “blog baby”. I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend! And as usual, stay dressed to dish! 🙂
