I made some home made butter this morning so now I'm about to make some biscuits with the buttermilk.

We've also got a pizza dough rising :)

I love when the weather turns cool.  It makes me want to heat up the oven!

I made lemon curd last Sunday. Last night was cowboy beans and cornbread. I think tonight is soup.

We made acorn squash stuffed with quinoa and sausage last night. Today I'm going to make a nice chicken tikka masala, and maybe get going on Christmas baking. :D

Taking a break from cooking today, because yesterday, I made a roast duck with a spiced pomegranate sauce and some spiced mashed potatoes.

Don't have a recipe for the potatoes, since that's one of those things I have just made so often that I have no idea what the measurements are anymore, but here's the duck.

It was amazing, btw. No tweaking this recipe at all, it's perfect.

Um. You might have just given me part of my Christmas Eve menu. Oddly enough, I've been looking for a good pomegranate sauce recipe this week! Thanks. :D

I'm a big fan of pomegranate syrup that you can get from middle eastern grocery stores. It's basically concentrated pomegranate juice, so it saves a lot of boiling and stirring time. Also mix 1-1 with simple syrup and you have the best grenadine ever.

Simmering a pomegranate sauce for thirty minutes makes your house smell like amazing for like two days. Added bonus.

Wait, where do you find it in Atlanta? I went looking for some once, but the only ME grocery store in Athens didn't stock any (and was ALSO extremely sketchy, which means last time I went there, a random creepy man followed me all the way to my car screaming at me for reasons only known to him).

It'll be dueling with the mulled wine to set the tone for the evening! :D

What are you guys cooking for the holidays, if you celebrate?

I can point to at least three non-sketch ME grocery stores within a 20 minute drive of my house. You could have nice things if you lived in a civilized portion of the state.

Two of the three also serve amazing food, and the third is immediately next door to the restaurant. Next time you escape from Mos Eisley, we'll have to visit one.

Dude. Stop hogging all the ME grocery stores! I'll trade you our football team. I hear you don't have that kind of thing up in ATL.

But barring that, yeah, we could probably be lured from Mos Eisley for pomegranate syrup sometime. :p

Well, I'll ask him, but I don't think he'll be very keen. Uh, he's already got one, you see?

December is chocolate making month. Made 2500 pieces this year (truffles, fudge centres, mints, nut clusters, etc.)  Still handing out boxes to friends and family.

LOL! My distribution list is over 70 people at the moment, plus about 8 larger assortments going to holiday gatherings I attend. I just can't handle any more people on the list! ;)

But if you follow the 12 days of Christmas, Christmas isn't over until the 6th of  January, look at all that extra time you have to get it done j/k
