Dinner was awesome. We were invited by some college friends (they just recently had their second child, Anastasia).
I was invited to fix a computer ... something I do only for very close friends. They offered cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory http://www.cheesecakefactory.com/ as a present for my wife's birthday as a bribe.
Since they offered such a nice dinner I decided to cook ... I've been working on converting some of my mother's recipes over to more modern appliances. This one was Minestrone using a Crock Pot ... so far the taste is dead on, but the sauce got completely absorbed into the noodles ... just a slight adjustment that I'll get quickly.
There's more, but I do need to sleep sometime and I will have lots of time to jabber tomorrow.
