Popovers! I love them so dangerously (as a delicious delivery vehicle for Hope Creamery butter) that I don’t let myself make them very often. But tonight, aka Crazy Wednesday, when I needed a quick, hot something to go with a quick, hot soup for the whole fam… Eggy, buttery popovers, yep. So easy. So perfect. To die.
Although I’m almost still full from dinner last night – a gift certificate extravaganza at The Capital Grille, courtesy of Ana Scofield, for Debbie Williams and…lucky me! It was very sweet of Ana to share her bounty with us, and oh boy, did we do it up. Wine and king crab with drawn butter and huge, juicy steaks (that we could hardly put a dent in) and killericious truffle-Parmesan fries (holy fries). The place was hoppin’, quite a scene, I must say. Lots of good holiday cheer (even a table of revelers in Santa hats!), it was a perfect Holiday Ladies Dinner. Thanks Ana and Debbie!
And thanks to Cooper for such a fun afternoon today – I missed him last week, but he had a great time in Maine, visiting Stacey’s friend Caroline at her family’s amazing home. Horses, a pot-bellied pig, dogs, beach – a postcard perfect pre-Christmas visit to one of the most beautiful places in the country. NICE! I don’t know (yet!) what Stace is doing for a Christmas card this year, but this picture could do – Happy Merry Sweet Baby Cooper, awwww.
And oh! Lest I forget, have a look at the Famously Fabulous Amy Brown Christmas Cookies that we gratefully receive and devour each year. I’d offer a taste – but they were gone in mere minutes. All that hard work! All that loving care! And John and I ate them so inelegantly, I was rather ashamed – which is actually a compliment, a testament to how amazingly irresistible they are.
Dangerous time of year for the waistline, very dangerous…
