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
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.
