Holiday Recipes

Found this recipe card on my fridge this weekend, written in Jen’s handwriting. Very mysterious. Copied verbatim.

Recipe #1

1 c peanuts (chopped)
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 c vegetable oil
2 large lobsters
1/2 head lettuce
1 bowl raspberry JELLO
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c Tabasco

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Stir for 2 minutes and move to blender. Blend on high for 2-3 minutes, and serve to whoever will eat it.

Orange Chocolate Mousse…

With orange bourbon vanilla whipped cream, garnished with orange zest and shaved bittersweet chocolate.

This is what follows the awesome meal I cooked for Grant’s folks, which also includes:

  • Goat cheese wrapped in black sesame seeds, to nibble while I finish cooking
  • Organic spring green salad with raspberry cumin poppyseed Dijon vinaigrette and toasted almonds
  • Organic pork chops with balsamic-roasted pears
  • Roasted garlic tarragon mashed potatoes
  • Steamed broccoli (hey, something’s gotta be simple!)
  • A nice 2006 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

Man, I love a good excuse to cook!
