Sorry for not really posting this week - our annual Christmas party is on Saturday and the whole family has been working overtime to get ready for it. I've made a ton of cookies and ginger bars and tortelli.... here's what I'm pretty sure is the menu, if you'd like to see:
bacon-wrapped water chestnuts
chive crepes with duck and hoisin sauce
tortelli of butternut squash with sage brown butter sauce
smoked ribs and chicken wings
butternut squash quesadillas with chipotle sauce
"dips" - probably means Sultan's Delight, Muhamara, and something with carrots
sugar cookies (decorated by my sister and me last night!)
chocolate-black pepper cookies
I think that's everything, but I'm not entirely sure. I might post some recipes, if anyone is interested...
Also, tonight is the PIH Christmas party, and tomorrow my brother is hosting a benefit concert for Haiti! A long, very full, slightly stressful week, to be sure!
