Archive for the ‘Chicks and Roosters’ Category

No recipes made it to my inbox (probably the holiday busy-ness) — but don’t miss our picture album of this one. (Click on any picture to go to album.)  The evening’s a bit of a blur (hmm…how does that happen??).  I do recall the chicken Veronique, and some amazing desserts.  And I came away with an awesome faux-fur vest in our “re-gift” Chinese swap.  Sorry, Amy.

The crash of the blog-master’s computer in September threw a wrench in the works for this blog!  I don’t have any recollection or e-mails from whatever it was we did in September (any chix remember??), but for the October 2009 Chix event, we gathered at Wendy’s WITH the menfolk for a change (missing Charles – who was in Cuba).  The theme was simply a celebration of autumn, and I don’t remember what the main dish was either!    Here are the recipes that the others sent me:

Carrot with Toasted Almond Soup (Cindi – from Epicurious.com.  Cindi added 1 c. sour cream blended with a tablespoon of fresh grated ginger, and added dollop of that in the center of each bowl.)

Pear Salad with Feta, Hazelnuts and Shallot Vinaigrette (Buffy)

Crispy and Creamy New Potato Pie (Susie)

Uptown Scones (Mary)

Flourless Chocolate Cake with Caramel Sauce (Amy) and

Pumpkin Cheesecake (Amy) – for Keri’s birthday!

And the party was just as cheesy as that headline.  Keri pulled out all the stops for this ultra-traditional, ultra Hallmark-cards-style party:  dress red and pink, and expect paper cut-out hearts.  LOTS of them.

Dinner was incredible, of course…starting with the red cocktails complete with battery-lit “ice cubes” (flashing, of course), and ending with just the SWEETest red velvet heart-sprinkled cupcakes.  Chicks put the roosters to shame with their knowledge of all things male (male trivia, that is…).  Though John did surprise us with his knowledge of chick flicks and what YSL stands for in ladies’ cosmetics.

Keri and John, you guys sure know how to host a party!!
