With a few members moving out of town, and new babies, it's been hard getting the girls together for cooking, but we managed to do it last month. No real theme was set, but with winter finally here, it ended up being a good night for cold weather comfort food.
I made Kenny Shopsin's chicken, tortilla and avocado soup from his "Eat Me" book. Brownie made a papaya, avocado, and mache salad; Melissa made David Chang's brussel sprouts with mint and spicy toasted Rice Krispies.
Debbie and Marian supplied the hearty main dishes: a whole roast chicken by Deb, and traditional Italian Sunday gravy by Marian -- super rich sauce slow-cooked all day long with homemade meatballs, sausage, and baby back ribs falling off the bone -- guy food as she put it.
