    Letter of the Week - Letter V
    Note to self: when using a hand held blender, make sure it’s unplugged when you decide to go digging out the cream cheese stuck in the blades.  Because this might happen.  I was really glad I had taught my daughter how to make a phone call on my phone.  After the initial freak out, she was able to call my mom for me.
    For once I was on schedule with dinner prep, but this put me back an hour or so, so I was rushing through everything.  Therefore, I did not get pics of anything for V dinner. 🙁  But, let me tell you, it was my favorite yet.  Everything was really delicious.
    Dinner: Vichyssoise (also super good), Very good steak (and it was), Very good chicken, vegetables, Virginia Spoon bread (also really delicious!)
    Dessert: Vinegar Pie (This was really delicious.  I liked it a lot.)
    Other Options: veggie chips with a veggie dip, vegetables, vanilla wafers,  venison, veal, vegetable soup, Vienna sasuage
