Sorry, I forgot to schedule the last day’s posts. Making up for lost time.
I have decided that better than dessert, I love hors d’oeuvres best out of the meal courses and would like to become more proficient at making them. Husband has a pretty damn good stuffed mushroom thing he makes; and for my last knitting party I made cucumber sandwiches, smoked salmon on toast, prosciutto-wrapped asparagus, chicken salad sandwiches, tiny ham sandwiches, and cut the crusts off everything! (And a special sneaky treat for the husband: anchovy toasts. He ate 3 big slices!)
It was marvelous.
So I’ll be getting a little sort of running start with the two family Christmas parties we’re attending (one on the 20th and the other on the 25th), photos will be taken, and I’m sure a blog of some sort will be written. I’m already planning ahead for January and what I’m going to make every day.
Mmm! Where to begin? molasses-glazes ribs? pizza with wild mushrooms and fontina? shrimp shumai? I smell happiness around the corner.
That’s what’s In My Mailbox (part 9 of 48)… What’s in yours?
