I apologize for the lack of posts this month – I’ve been really distracted with making arrangements for my upcoming trip, and food has really been the farthest thing from my mine. Eating this past week has been all about cleaning out the perishables before the end of the year. But there should be some upcoming posts about a couple of things I’ve made this month, along with an overview of our Christmas Eve dinner with family.
A couple of quick notes…
Today is the last day to buy your raffle tickets for this year’s Menu for Hope. Check out Pim’s site for the master list, or just go directly to the Firstgiving site to bid for the prize I’m offering, UC05 – the Penzey’s $100 GC.
The Food Lover’s Meetup group will be getting together for Dim Sum at Little Dragon on January 6th. I’ll be out of town, but the other organizer, Rosie, and nearly a dozen other folks will be there – the more the merrier. Check out the details of the event and feel free to join in!
