Oh, what a night
Last night’s girls potluck got off to a rough start.
While something was reheating in the oven, it caught on fire! Luckily, we were able to call the fire department, Court broke the glass to get the fire extinguisher out, and I put the fire out.
And he didn’t go down without a fight, but we were able to get the cat in his carrier to take him outside and away from the fumes.
It was crazy for a while but we were all grateful no one got hurt (just a few scratches) and there wasn’t much damage to the home, only a mess to clean up. The oven got the worst of it.
Since the main dinner course was covered in extinguisher dust, we ended up going out to eat at Penn Station. I got the artichoke sandwich with added mushrooms and no cheese and some fresh cut fries (the best).
Luckily dessert survived and we greatly enjoyed it when we got back from dinner!
These are Chocolate Crescent Wraps :)
It was a practice recipe that I made to get ready for the FoodBuzz and Pepperidge Farm 1,2,3 Puff Pastry contest that I have to make an original recipe for. I’m still trying to figure that out but in the mean time, these were a hit!
I got the puff pastry sheets with a free coupon from FoodBuzz and once it was thawed, I cut it into triangles.
Then I laid on the chocolate chips (I used regular since I didn’t have mini).
I spread a little Smart Balance light on the rolls instead of using the egg mixture the recipe called for.
Just a little time in the oven and voila! They were yummy.
It was a crazy night indeed but we feel lucky that things didn’t go much worse, which they could have. I also think it sort of made us all come together and help each other out a bit, which is exactly what Thanksgiving is all about.
