New Year’s Day dinner: black eyed peas and quiche. I have no evidence, but I’m pretty sure that quiche has become a New Year’s Day tradition in our house to use up Christmas leftovers.
Lemon pepper chicken, peas and carrots, and noodles. This was a definite win!
11.03.12 Birthday Dinner
Fancy dinner with some friends!
We had sourdough toast and goat cheese with our cocktails, but we forgot to take pictures of those. The cocktail was fresh orange juice, American Honey Wild Turkey, vanilla, and soda water. Kind of like a fizzy creamsicle. Then,
Wilted spinach salad:
Cast iron steaks, mashed potatoes, mushroom cream sauce, and green beans:
And, Pots de Creme, no pictures, but done before here and here.
A noble attempt that failed miserably and ended in peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. These were twice bakes sweet potatoes with roasted corn and black beans in the filling. The recipe called for 4-6 chipotle peppers, but one would have probably been more than sufficient. They were so hot, Meg cried when she tried a bite 🙁
