Can I just mention a shout out to my friend Rosie of Kitchens are Monkey Business before I begin.... The lady is in the midst of posting about her 40 different Christmas Cookies she makes each year. They all look wonderful, so if you're in need of some to add to your repertoire, please go visit her like NOW.
Now for the rest of this Holiday month, my posts will not be my norm with the step by step type of things I usually do, but just a few pics and the recipes, as this is a busy time for all, and I need to save time when I can.
Actually, for the rest of the month, you will most likely see cookie baking with the occasionalBlow job. Just seeing if you re reading.
This post happens to be a hodgepodge of "stuff" I brought along to my sisters COCK-tail party. I love that word COCKtail, it is so freaking sexy. I love saying it, Ill have a COCKtail. I love saying it as I push my silky brown, yes brown, hair away from my angelic face.
Without further ado, Of course Jello Shots were the main course for me. Red and Green for fun fun fun drunk sex fun fun fun drunk sex fun. Come. Simple to make,see here or below, endless variety. We just chose what we had on hand, vodka paired with raspberry/strawberry and lime jello. Id imagine tequila--Patron-- would go better with lime. Double the dose in the key ingredient card below and this'll knock you re panties off, that is if you're wearing any. I wasn't. Want to speak attire for a minute? OK, I wore thigh high candy cane striped socks, no panties, tight little black miniskirt, red snowman shirt, long jingle bell earrings, and the highest elf heels imaginable. Of what fun it was to bend over the oven and catch the draft. Not to mention all the OOOHHSSS and AHHHHHHSS I received about my Brazilian. I also brung.. is brung a word, it rhymes with hung, along my concoction of a chicken roasted red pepper veggie sub. I do this by making chicken cutlets, roasting red peppers, and marinating them in olive oil and garlic, seen here, frying up some zucchini and red onion, slicing some fresh mozzarella, and piling all on top of fresh bread drizzled with red wine vinegar, parm cheese, and olive oil. Oh its yummy. Make sure to use some oil from the peppers on this bread.. I always do. The whole 2 subs I made disappeared at this party. I brought along an antipasto pasta salad to go along with this sub sandwich. Simple to make. Just cut up some of this stuff, toss it with the cooked cold pasta, and add dressing, I used a balsamic, recipe on KI card below, and toss and chill.
I then made Cathy's, from Wives with Knives, Cranberry Tangerine Chutneyrecipe here, holy crap is this good stuff, threw it over cream cheese and served it with ginger cookies, and shortbread cookies. Oh so freaking delicious Cathy! What a fantastic keeper of a recipe. SO using it for Turkey Day next year. LOVE it.
And oh yes, what else did I bring to Denise's?? I made Baileys Chocolate Chip Irish Cream pound cake, original recipe here, recipe here and below, along with Monica from Lick the Bowl Good, Baileys frosting/glaze. Oh Yes, yum. Well, people, on my way to shoplift, I mean shop, will see you soon with my beginnings of my baking. Posts should be back to normal step by step theme.. in January without all the flurry of sexual, I mean holiday, activity.
