Cool Today, not what's for dinner, it's "What's for Dessert"!

OK....., dinner was as most everyone expects......., Leftovers. However, I DO enjoy them the day after, but since our girls won't be back till days before X-Mas (both in college ), we decided to put up the tree today (first time it's ever been up this early, usually 1 & 1/2 weeks before), and to help get everyone in the Holiday spirit, we had "Reindeer" cupcakes for desert! Yum!

So adorable! (Obviously Gemma is writing this, Murray would never use the word, "adorable".)

You two seem to have an awful lot of time on your hands.

Yesterday it was dessert-a-palooza.

At Modesto, there was apple crumb pie, pumpkin pies (plural), berry pie, Oreo Pie, pecan pie, banana cream pie, pecan bars, maple cookies, chocolate-chocolate chip cupcakes and Murray's devil's food cake. Everything was home made and we tried our best to sample everything. There were so many desserts that there had to be a table in the garage to hold all of them.

At Alamo there was cranberry tart, a "chocolate symphony" cake, more pumpkin pie, coffee cake and pumpkin bread. All purchased at Whole Foods and Katrina Rozelle. Katrina Rozelle Pastries & Desserts Home Page

The images below are of our niece, Bailey, with the Oreo pie she made, the dessert table, and Murray and his cousin, Jeff, as they hung out with the rest of the boys in the garage/man cave/dessert room. It was perfect - they could eat dessert to their hearts' content and it didn't matter if they spilled or used their sleeves as napkins.

Devil's Food Cake - Before, During and After.

We couldn't resist posting images of Murray's devil's food cake and our two year old nephew, Fish - short for Fisher. (He say's he's almost three!)

1. Before

2. During (The first thing he did was scrape off all of the chocolate ganache frosting with a spoon and shove it in his mouth. Priorities.)

3. During

4. After (Well not really after, after, because he had another huge slice two hours later.) Can you see the chocolate ganache frosting on his forearm?


P.s. Tracie, a five year old, pronounced Murray's cake, "Delish!".

Thanksgiving 2x

Okay, we're going to try and remember everything served on Thanksgiving.

At Modesto there were veggies and ranch dip, black olives, home made rolls (Gemma would have been happy to just eat these except for the fact that there were four turkey wings up for grabs), cinnamon butter and orange honey butter for the rolls, brined turkey cooked on the barbecue, roasted turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, sausage wonton appetizer thingies, ham baked/braised with peaches, pears, pineapple and raisins, cranberry relish with walnuts and topped with sour cream, dressing and last but not least, green bean casserole. No rice. No sweet potatoes. What???

At Alamo there were mixed olives, salumi and soppresata, futomaki sushi, Chinese chicken salad, somen noodle salad, brined, roasted turkey (with one turkey wing left when we got there at 8:30 in the evening), mashed potatoes, mashed potatoes and cauliflower, broccoli casserole, dressing, dungeness crab macaroni and cheese, gravy, sweet potatoes and, oh happy day, rice!

Gemma took a quick image of a small part of the Modesto spread. We apologize for the blurriness - she had to take it quickly, 'cause there were lots of hands reaching for things. The image of the roasted turkey we swiped from our cousin's, Rosie's, facebook page. (Look the drumstick is in almost the same position in the two images.) We didn't take any shots in Alamo because the table was obliterated by the time we got there for leftovers.

We did too! On the day after Thanksgiving. On The Charming Gemma.

We're all about multi-tasking, so we dropped a couple of crab nets off the side of the boat while we were decorating and had crab for dinner. Yep, that's them in the image below.

Crab and rice!

We've Gone Vegan

Terry,

You've shamed us. We were out and about the day before Thanksgiving on Fourth Street in Berkeley, trying to get a jump on holiday shopping - the day you posted the above quote.

We went all vegan on you-at least for lunch. Gemma grabbed lunch at The Pasta Shop. Pasta Shop - Fourth Street - Berkeley, CA The Pasta Shop :: Shopping on Fourth Street in Berkeley, California :: Unique Shopping and Dining on 4th Street :: SFBayShop :: WorldTravelShop

We had roasted butternut squash (Gemma's favorite thing to pick up), roasted potatoes, roasted brussels sprouts and apples with a balsamic vinaigrette, and spinach and watercress salad with beets and hazelnuts.

Oh, we're aware of Hooters. Well aware.

We usually fly out to Phoenix in March for Murray's Dad's birthday and take him to the Hooters in Tempe. He's so cute and the girls love him. We think the feeling is mutual.

Here's the link to our post in page 26, post 354: http://www.airforums.com/forums/f472...tml#post832893

Thanks for the invite! We'd love to check out your local Hooters and we're pretty sure Murray's dad wouldn't mind tagging along.

Interesting...., so extrapolating that info, Gemma may like the acorn squash thing with the cran-apple compote? So......., I'll file that, in the "lock tight safe" (ie, it may be in there but it might not ever get out ). It was good (and everyone did like it - very colorful!). If we ever meet up, we might try it out for her, and you could consider russeling up some crab/scallops/lobster tail...., we're easy.

On another note: LOL, love the pic. of the charming Gemma all gussied up for the holidays.

Girls were excited to have x-mas decorations up. They think they want to make gingerbread houses for their friends, but they don't know how much work it is, boy are they in for a surprise if it actually comes to fruition!! On another note: Neither one wanted to go back to school. One left early am (has a longer drive - and doesn't like beans) the other stayed for an early dinner, ergo, back to the topic at hand......, "What's for Dinner?".
I made Navy beans (not from a can, my momma would "b^&@#" slap me) w/ left over ham and good old cornbread baked in a cast iron skillet. One of my fav's.

Gemma, Glad you scored on the chicken wings!

Have fun.

Terry.

Hey there Terry!

We had ham with scalloped potatoes, (fresh) green beans and steamed rice two days ago. It was a huge ham and we had dinner with two friends but we hardly put a dent in it, even after we left them with some leftovers. So . . . we dropped some off to Gemma's mom and Gemma's aunt and uncle. We may call her brother to come by and pick some up too. Gemma's going to have ham, eggs and rice for lunch today. We might just have to become neighborhood ham elves and start passing some out to our neighbors. But the ham bone is all ours. Ours, we tell you!

We're going to make split pea soup! We like navy bean too, but we have split peas in the pantry - so split pea it is. Split pea soup coming soon!

Monthaversary - Five Days Later

We celebrated our monthaversary five days later, on the 28th. We were a little too busy with the holiday preparations.

We went to Woodside and had dinner at The Village Pub The Village Pub - Woodside, CA , one of our favorite restaurants. We wish we could go more often, but things like the mortgage payment get in the way.

The evening started with an amuse bouche of pumpkin soup with creme fraiche. Murray had the Fall Harvest Salad with satsuma tangerines, roasted beets, sheeps milk cheese and caviar. We both had the foie gras torchon salad; shaved foie gras torchon over mache, toasted hazelnuts and apple jellee. We then moved on to the grilled rack of pork with warm spinach salad, crispy pork trotters and roasted apples, and finished with the apple crisp with creme fraiche ice cream. Ohh, and one last thing, a homemade caramel with sea salt.

No wine, because, again, those pesky mortgage payments. Ice water - thank you very much.

We apologize for the grainy iPhone images. It was very intimately lit/romantic = dark.

Tonight, split pea soup at Chez Yhottys.

Forgot Something

Dang it. We knew we forgot something.

Gemma had the duck consomme with smoked duck breast and matsutake mushrooms.

Okay, nothing else to report.
