flowersHappy Saturday to all! Just showing off the beautiful flowers my hubby got me to brighten up my week. We were married on Thanksgiving weekend and the colors remind me of my wedding flowers.

Have you started your holiday baking? Lisa from Snappy Gourmet has a slew of good cookie recipes on her blog. Check out her  Best Cookie Recipes of 2013.

chefSeveral weeks ago, I was invited to dinner at Megu Sushi in Moorestown. They have a 10 course sushi tasting menu on Wednesday nights for only $30. It was outstanding and I plan to go back soon. They also have happy hour everyday from 3pm to 6pm for $3 to $5 sushi appetizers and tapas. Here are some of the delicious courses I tasted.

sushi (2)They create some beautiful sushi. My camera phone didn’t do justice to the pictures but trust me as it was both gorgeous and delicious.

Another restaurant I am so excited about is Osteria Moorestown. It opened a few weeks ago and it is one of Marc Vetri’s restaurants. I was invited to the opening party and was well fed with great cocktails, appetizers and desserts. Everything was fabulous including the staff and I will be going back there for dinner with my hubby soon. Here are some of the highlights of the night. Excellent company, pizza, drinks, antipasto, cannolis, you name it!
