Good Eats

Today my friend Catherine and her family came over to dinner. The menu was spectacular. We had:

-- Chicken and Brown Rice with Chablis and Herbs
-- Molasses roasted butternut squash, carrots, and pecans
-- Sweet potato muffins
-- Honey cake with vanilla bean ice cream and caramelized apples
-- Coffee

The best recipes were the sweet potato muffins and the honey cake and both of those recipes came from Ari over at Baking and Books.

I was a bit frenzied while putting everything together, my apartment kitchen is teeny tiny. I had the slow cooker and the Kitchen Aid mixer on the counter and that pretty much took the entire counter. It was a bit like playing a game; to take something out of the oven I had to move stuff around on the makeshift counter (the stove and any other flat, stationary item).

All this to say we feasted and I didn't take one damn picture. You'll just have to image it in your head.
