Chanukah Dinner, 2010
My good friend Liz and her husband Corey had a bunch of us over for a Chanukah dinner.
Liz and I met in graduate school and we decided that, after we’ve had our fill of our I/O Psychology careers, we’d partner up and hopefully one day open a restaurant or bistro off the coast of some faraway island paradise. She comes from a huge Italian family and let me tell you, they know how to not only eat, but how to cook, bake, and feed people.
Liz made a feast of brisket, latkes, pearl onions and shallots, green beans, and gluten-free rugelach.
I contributed gluten-free challah bread courtesy of Wheatless in Seattle (note: it was horribly inauthentic, not braided, not fluffy, etc.) and home-made bakewell tart.
I tried stalking up on the veggie parts of the meal, but man, that brisket and latkes were sooo hard to resist. In any case, I did manage to limit my intake of bakewell tart to one slice, and my intake of rugelach to one piece.
Feast your eyes on the feast Liz prepared.
