Anyone else feel like a total slug getting back to work after ringing in the New Year? So. damn. painful. Well, I'll stop my griping and promise you this: we turned it OUT this holiday season, taking lots of photos and making and eating our share of tasty holiday yum-yums.
And by that I mean we stuffed our face with:
- Shrimp & Grits (made by Sir Scott, coming soon to a blog near you!)
- Potato Gratin with Rosemary Crust (made by yours truly madly deeply...I rocked it - post coming soon.)
- Southern goodies like pimento cheese (pronounced "puh-menna" if you can get your Southern drawl going) and boiled peanuts
- A new thing I credit my mother dear for showing me: Pickled Okra! Holy cow, they are good with cocktails. Or just eating them straight out of the jar at 2am , barefoot, as you try your hardest not to get pickled juice all over your feet and kitchen floor. (Or something.)
These are delicious, mmmkay?
I've taken drastic measures already in 2011 - merely seven days in - to say adieu to my other blog. I definitely love this HTT blog the most, and hope to devote more time to making it hungrier and better.
Here's to getting hungry in this new year - seize it and chomp on it!
