Merry Christmas To All
As usual, I'm a little behind. The Christmas holidays are always a busy time, but December 25th crept up a bit faster than usual this year due to being on yet another getaway to visit Carmi during the first half of the month. I do plan on sharing our latest kitchen escapades, but for now, here's a quickie about the dinner I enjoyed on Christmas day. It's typical turkey dinner for my family and friends - not for me though! I got to work a day ahead preparing Russell's infamous mushroom spinach quiche which dehydrated for a full 24 hours (and could still have used more time, as I made 1 large and 2 small ones). I first made the recipe around this time last year, and while it takes some time, its definately worth it. If you haven't already, I urge you to give it a try!
Soak 1 hr:
One more dessert topped off the feast - Persimmon Orange Cheesecake, from the new Cafe Grattitude Book. I had this at Carmi's a few weeks ago, and fell in love with the light flavour and "outta this world" creamy texture. Fortunately I got my hands on some gorgeously large, ripe persimmons. Yay! What a treat!
Hope you enjoyed your Christmas, and have fun ringing in the New Year! 😀 Cheers!
