Christmas Dessert

The Alamo crowd decided to redeem themselves at Christmas. During Thanksgiving everything on the dessert table was purchased, all of the Christmas desserts were homemade.

There was a dulce de leche and strawberry sorbet cake with whipped cream frosting (sorry no image of the cake, it was finished when we thought of taking a picture), a 7-Up bundt cake (sorry, no image of that either - same reason), sugar cookies and some coorazy "stained glass" jello dessert that Gemma's mom and aunt loved and that our sister-in-law's aunt made.

You said it brother. We had grilled cheese sandwiches the day after Christmas.

To make up for it Gemma took Murray out for pizza at Pizza Antica - Lafayette, CA

Gemma had the spaghettini with tomato conserva and Italian sausage. We shared the #5 (Bartlett pear, sweet roasted garlic, and Mount Tam Triple Cream Cheese), the #6 (heirloom potatoes, caramelized onion and white truffle oil) and the #9 (three cheese, shaved broccoli, caramelized onion and pancetta). We brought lots of pizza home.

No dessert. Although we did go to . . .

Powell's Sweet Shoppe!

Yes, no dessert but we went to Powell's Sweet Shoppe - Lafayette, CA, which is right across the street from Pizza Antica, BEFORE we had dinner. (There was a twenty minute wait - they don't take reservations.)

We bought a couple of Mo's Chocolate Bacon bars Exotic Chocolate Candy Bars - Milk, Dark & White Chocolate from Vosges Haut-Chocolat - Mo's Milk Chocolate Bacon Bar (Murray), chicken sticks - they'e some sort of hard peanut butter candies, like the peanut butter bar in a Butter Finger without the chocolate (Murray) and some Zotz Classic Candy Time Line: 1794-Today - Photo Gallery - Photo 12 | SAVEUR.com (Gemma - Zotz are her favorite candies - takes her right back to the seventies.)

And The Day After That . . .

we had dinner at Tavern At Lark Creek The Tavern at Lark Creek

Gemma started with the semolina oysters with scallion cream and pancetta vinaigrette over spinach and frissee, Murray had the beet salad with feta, cashews and deep fried kale (if you gotta eat kale, deep fried is the way to go!). For the main course, Gemma had the dungeness crab spaghetti with extra virgin olive oil and chiles and Murray had the flat iron steak with corona beans and homemade breadcrumbs.

This time we had dessert! Butterscotch pudding for Gemma and this amazing black pepper pineapple cake with coconut lime sorbet (it sounds odd and not very compelling, but it was the kitchen's version of a deconstructed pineapple upside down cake - yummy yellow cake with a brown sugar and butter glaze, really no need for the pineapple) for Murray/Gemma.

OK, hard to believe that one. Gemma was probably still trying to escape from her crib, or has aged very well....., like a fine wine. But I think escaping from the crib is more like it. But we're wondering 'bout Murry, he does seem like the type to rob the cradle.

Last night, left over turkey dinner. LOVE that Brine'd turkey, We are considering a turkey lasagna made w/ cranberry sauce and cheeses? any opinions out there, has anyone tried something like this? Quick, send help/suggestions before we ruin good turkey!

Chard", in the garden in early spring and it is fantastic steamed! with grilled steaks and yeast rolls. Sure is got my mouth watering......, gotta go, just got by "Burpee" seed catalog.

Ah, Terry you have your little bride. Murray likes to refer to Gemma as his "Child Bride".

About eighteen years ago we were on the north rim of the Grand Canyon attempting to obtain a hiking pass. The only one available was for a same day hike - miles down AND miles UP the SAME day. While we were contemplating how we were going to accomplish this feat of human strength and stamina while carrying forty pound backpacks a couple in their seventies yelled out, "We'll take it!". Show offs! Just goes to show you age is just a number.

Thank you for your kind words. Gemma will be sending the twenty bucks soon. Do you take PayPal?

December 30th

The day after we had dinner at the Tavern at Lark Creek we had dinner at Ducca. welcome to ducca [ home ]

We started with a cheese plate and moved on to the Italian chopped salad and lamb pappardelle. For entrees, Gemma had the flounder with brussel sprouts, baby turnips and parsnips and Murray had the filet with mushrooms, fingerling potatoes and sauteed spinach. Cheesecake and pear crostata, granished with candied orange peel, with a side of caramel sauce for dessert.

New Years Eve

We had arroz caldo, a chicken and rice soup made with ginger, garlic and scallions, traditionally served on New Year's Eve in the Philippines. And, yes, Gemma cooked.

Twelve grapes each at the stroke of midnight to ensure good luck.
