So while they were out with my family hiking a trail in Potomac I got my mise' on.
I decided to start out with a carrot cake. It's time consuming, but it's worth it. The recipe is from a "Recipe a Day" calender that my former boss got me for Christmas.
Start out with some comfy clothes and a good cd. I was listening to The Rolling Stones Greatest Hits cd for this adventure.
Next up was the potato dish. I felt like trying something new.
I added some goat cheese, because it seemed like a good idea.
The finished product. Very oniony. The last recipe I'm going to share was some steamed cauliflower with a bastardized Mornay sauce. I was using an ingredient that was given to me by an old friend and business colleague, Mike Zendell, Black Truffle Flour.I love this stuff. Mike, if you're reading this, Christmas is coming again! I think you know what I want this year.
Last but not least, the main course. Barbecue Chicken Thighs. (Mike Palmer, this pic is for you!) I dry-rubbed these, seared them, then put them in a foil-lined and covered pan and left them on the grill for 45 minutes or so. I then took them out just before serving and crisped them up a little with direct heat from grill. The chicken was just about falling off the bone.
Should you have any questions, comments, or rude remarks about anything you've read here please feel free. I always like to hear from you.
Until next time....keep reading.
