Best thing you ate yesterday
Ghirardelli square (Peppermint Bark)
Best thing to drink? Amish Egg Nog. They don't mess around.
Garlic green beans
Pumpkin pecan streusel pie bought fresh from Publix for $3.29 (a big pie too!) Yum!
The broccoli cheese casserole I made. Made with cream cheese.
The snack and Starbucks after walking in a Run for the Hungry that raised money for local food pantries. Walked with my kid, her boyfriend and my hubby. Really warmed my heart.
Haagen Dazs Bourbon Pecan Praline Ice Cream.
Two and a half buck Chuck liquid lunch after grocery run and while cooking for everyone. Whatever it takes to get you through, I say.
Count – what was the best thing you ate yesterday???? Do you have a pic?
@7 very astute of you to tape it while you were drinking it and making it your avatar! 🙂
Copycat recipe Boston market sweet potatoes.
Reno, did you use cc instead of mayo?I'm making a brocc/cheese casserole this wkd and would love to see your recipe.
Tator tot cassarole
The pineapple honey glazed ham I made. I have no idea how I did it, but for some reason every bite of the ham has honey and pineapple flavor. I guess when I cooked it cut side down in the pan, the excess that ran down it was sucked into the meat and cooked in that way.
Mashed sweet potatoes with brie, sage, bacon, and caramelized onions.ORCaramelized brussels sprouts with blue cheese and bacon.
Pumpkin creme brulee
"Icing On The Cake" ice cream, by Baskin Robbins. That shit is the BEST.
Mine was caramelized Brussels sprouts with slivered garlic, balsamic and bacon. Made a double batch and served them with thin spaghetti and shaved pecorino romano the night before. JSierra, how did you use the bleu? Crumbled and mixed in at the end or gratineed on top?
Gentlemen never tell 😉
Bottoms up, @sandybrooke! (Though that's champagne in the avi. Variety is the sauce of life. :b )
PugsterMom you and your family rock.
I love caramelized brussels with roasted shallots. The blue cheese would totally gild the lilly. Absolutely going to try it.
The gravy rocked. Best part of the whole shebang. But now I'm on the hunt for that cake icing ice cream!
The crunchy, salty skin of the ducks I roasted. I had them brining for 5 days. Second place was some of my pancetta that I sauteed with Brussels sprouts.
Dear Charlie, what time should I be over? Should I bring the fancy wine?
@Seven Only if you put the wine in a fancy bottle so we can act snobbish. If so, does 7 PM EST work?
I like your style, I like your moves, Lucas.
@Bacon. Yes. It was pretty easy and not much to it but it was savory. Make a roux of 2 Tb butter, 2 Tb flour, 2 cups milk. Add 8 oz of cream cheese let it melt. Add in 16 oz cooked broccoli, salt, pepper. Pour in casserole dish, crushed crackers (I used whole wheat butter rounds) about 1 cup on top. Bake 350 for 30 min. I want to play with it and add some more stuff, but I loved how it was creamy and not dry like some broccoli casseroles I've had. Good luck with whatever one you do and let me know!
Turkey Dressing Lemon Cake delicious
Loopy I caramelized the sprouts in bacon grease and once they were done I threw the blue cheese in the pan so out got a little melty. I love Brussels sprouts, sherry loopy you have great taste!
What's so amazing is that most people don't like brussle sprouts BUT roast them abs they have a completly different flavor profile that can convert the most.ardent hater into a lover of the vegetable. Even my mom hasn't tried it and she likes them. She'll go gaga even more once she does.
Oysters and champagne
Pussy…and I know I'm not the only one…
Double decker grilled cheese.
eating yourself out doesn't count.
Fresh Crab with melted butter,a fave.
OMG, JSierra, I did the same damn thing with the bacon fat, then added the cooked and crumbled bacon back in at the end just before serving so it wouldn't get mushy. I looove the shallot idea too, Sherry. Whole roasted shallots? I'm dying. Maybe next year I'll put it all together. Dang, you ladies are awesome.
Catching up…jail food. Yep, got busted on T-Day.
