It’s been a busy week for me (as I’m sure it has been for you too) getting ready for the Christmas Holidays. Christmas shopping, making dinners & going to Christmas parties, (brief appearance anyhow) hosting the In-Laws, Oh and working of course… No wonder time seems to be slipping by so fast!
With that said, I am so far behind this year in every aspect of Christmas. Cards, shopping decorating… Being at Costco a few times a week has at least given me some shopping time, but man-o-man I’m nowhere near where I was last year, I think I was done with everything by last week last year!
Then the next day you can put your back at ease with some Robax Platinum (102 caplets -7.00 @ 22.99) and maybe have some more Baileys, straight up this time!
So I mentioned on Friday that we had a delicious dinner menu planned for Saturday evening (we did!) and I tried my best to get pictures of everything, but as it happens while you’re trying to prepare a feast; the cellphone camera isn’t top priority so I may have missed a few things… Such as the Charcuterie feast we had before the feast! Seems we got caught up in the excitement of our cheeses and meats and other goodies that I forgot to take a shot of the spread.
I got snaps of the rest though.
mmmmmm, the leftovers were just as delicious as the dinner too! (all of the leftovers have now been eaten)
Normally I’d take a picture of my plate fully assembled, but…
Well I apparently took a picture of the disassembled plate… No chance to Re-assemble. Johnny-5 would be so disappointed.
…Still lumpy, I know Johnny-5.
The citrus chili verde salmon was awesome, (though we put it under the broiler for a few extra minutes to give the top a bit of crisp/texture.) My Mom’s scalloped potatoes were rich and delicious. As was the winter Kale salad, though had more bite to help cut the rich potatoes. And the Roasted squash & radicchio salad was really unique, in a good way! The rich roasted squash balanced perfectly with the bitter crunchy radicchio, contrasted and aided by the pungent and umami flavors of the freshly sliced Parmesan and roasted almonds. The meal was really a great combination of all the different flavors and textures. (Most of the recipes came from Bon Appetit magazines, which is an amazing magazine and a great Christmas gift idea wink, wink!)
And on that note my post-staff party rambling are going to come to an end. I have to work in the Morning (as I always do on Tuesdays) and will have to deal with returning the restaurant to a normal-like state instead of the restaurant industry party mess it was probably left in tonight… Good thing the coffee is free flowing!
That’ll be every opening cook/server who attended, guaranteed!
See you sooner than later folks. Big week coming up… Better make sure we’re all prepped and ready!
