August 5

So, Rich and I have been married for one year already! How crazy. Time has simply flown by. Since we're both off work on Friday's, I decided to make a big anniversary meal for us. Kroger was having a great sale on Mussels! (yum) So for a starter we had steamed mussels in a white wine sauce and a salad with garden fresh veggies. For the main course we had stuffed porkchops, Emeril style, stuffed with apples and walnuts, rice, and baked butternut squash (from Mom's garden). After an un-Godly filling meal, we had a dessert of sorbet.

After a meal like that what is more appropriate than to kick some ass playing Warcraft 3?! Since the apartment is now a wireless "domain", we were able to play against each other. And I totally sacked his community! Go elves! We'll have to have a rematch soon.

Recipes from this meal follow:
Apple Walnut Stuffed Pork Chops with St. Andre Cheese

*the recipe calls for St. Andre Cheese, but I didn't have any so I omitted it. Still turned out great!*
