And we're off, 3 days until Thanksgiving
I don't know about most of you, but being chefs, we are always in charge of one thing or another at Thanksgiving. And what better time to showcase your talents, and 40k's worth of culinary knowlegde to stump and impress your family and friends?
This year we are in charge of appetizers, and I'm sad to say I have only figured out 3 so far. 2 are from Rachel Ray (scary I realize)....one is a White Cheddar and Caramelized Onion hot cheese dip, and the other is something she calls Everything Nuts. I'm in search of another, light appetizer item, but so far nothing. I could always do the forever loved goat cheese, and fig inside an endive leaf, but that's so been done. Also, I already have a cheese appetizer. I'll continue to ponder this today, and on my way to Whole Foods tonight.
I'm also bringing a spice bundt ake recipe that I also found on Food Network (Freak), and I am excited to have something other than just pumpkin pie. Everytime I make pumpkin pie, someone has to complain about it being either too moist, or something, which makes no sense to me but whatever.
Back to searching for appetizer ideas, oh, and silly work :) Cali

Birthdays are fun...
So over the weekend we went to a new restaurant so of course I have to give a review. The restaurant is called Union Cattle Company and is in Hermosa Beach, CA.
Being that they are a chop house, I had to order steak, and I was feeling finicky, so I had the fillet. Mmmm salty peppery crust, delicious twice baked potato, and wonderful BBQ baked beans. I recommend. Dinner for 2 set us back about 65.00 which I don't consider too much, for what we got.
Also it's fun to watch drunken idiots and sober folks alike try to ride the mechanical bull. They have more guts than I I'll tell ya. It was a fun time. My only complaints were it was (1) crowded (what do you expect for a Sat. night), and it was loud, and DARK. More of a bar type atmosphere than a restaurant. I bet it's different in the daytime.
I definitely give it a thumbs up :)
