A few of the sweets that were served over the weekend at get-togethers with friends. Sugar cookies (top), my ugly-looking but OK tasting cranberry, almond and caramel pie (middle), and finally, banana bread and gumdrop cake!
On Saturday we had a big potluck at Lisa and Alain’s. There was Cornish hen, guinea fowl AND quail, served with a pear & pecan salad, roasted squash, broccoli and hazelnuts, garlic mashed potatoes and topped off with my aforementioned ugly pie.
On Sunday I drove out with Lisa and Nadine to Ottawa to visit Emilie and her kids, who are ridiculously ADORBS. Emilie had a bunch of holiday sweets for us, recipes she recently copied down from her grandmother. So great!
Don’t you just love getting together with friends for the holidays?
