Snapshots of Recent Food-Related Goings On

Because I start classes this week and I'm too lazy to write a real post.

We hosted a fun, but somewhat small casserole party! I made my first ever Tater Tot Casserole!

It was darn tasty, but it'll probably be my last. It's sort of as gross as it is tasty. Here's something funny about it though. On the Ore-Ida website, tater tot casserole is tagged as vegetarian - observe here. Anyone else see why this is funny? Should I write to them? Or just let it be a funny? Thoughts?

Moving on - the casseroles! It was like -2 or something, so only 6 out of 18 people showed (I'm blaming the weather, although it's also possibly I got really annoying without knowing it and all my friends don't like me.) Anyway, YUM, right?

On a plate! Caitlin made a delicious pineapple bread pudding with cheddar CHEESE on top that tasted like the 1960's. That garbonzo thing is sort of curried with all this wilted arugula and it was a saving grace on a plate loaded up with bad-for-you things.

A little close up of Alissa's lovely roasted onions, just because they're beautiful.

There should really be a picture of some wine because there was plenty of that too.

Lastly, from today, a tub of Smitten Kitchen's Oatmeal cookies that I took to our vet, One Love Animal Hospital, as a thank you. Our beloved Bill has been with them since THURSDAY (so LOOOOONG!) for surgery etc and they have been superfantasticamazingterrific. If you live in Brooklyn, take your pet there! Baking these cookies for them felt like the full realization of the true meaning of what it is to be COOKIE. A dozen little sugary, butter-licious bites of love and gratitude.
