holiday salad
« on: November 03, 2010, 01:40:03 PM »
ok ladies, i have been super anxious this year, (already putting Christmas stuff out) and im cooking new recipes to see which ones the best for my dinner. i just had to share this salad i made, its my take on the "Christmas salad"  romaine lettuce, cut up and tossed with a mixture of raspberry vinaigrette and spicy brown mustard, then toss in  1/2 cup each of the following, glazed walnuts, crumbled blue cheese, dried cranberry's, and crumbled bacon.  OMG! soooo good! and pretty! today im making ginger snap cheese cake, and snicker doodles! 
just sharing............................ 8)

I always have to make a rum cake as one of the many deserts oh and glazed pecans.

I'd like to come up with something new in the veggie department this year I was thinking little tied bouquets of asparagus, has anyone ever done that.  I will be having approx 10 to 12 for Thanksgiving dinner.  What are you doing for veggies Erma?

Lemon grass might work - it's in the Asian vegetable section, usually.

I'm so hungry right now! I don't want to say too much about my holiday menus for fear of blowing my cover here. Everything you all have mentioned sounds so yummy. Let's just say we're eclectic, and there's always good wine.

What time will you be serving, Creme? I've already got my napkin tucked in.

Pen, come around 2 p.m., your more then welcome!!!!!

Laurie, it's just like cremebrulee, only I make it with a crust and rasberries...actually made it by accident the first time...I love custard pie, which is eggs and milk, vanilla and sugar in a crust...well, you must have guessed that I absolutely love Cremebrulee, and have made that many times as well, so I thought, hmmm, I'm going to substitue heavy cream and half and half instead of milk, a little more vanilla and walla, Cremebrulee pie...added fresh rasberries...which are usually huge around the holidays....and they loved it....serve it with home made whipped cream....

My favorite pie is egg custard so I'm sure the cremebrulee pie would be fantastic... When you find the recipe  you can start a new recipe only topic.. thanks
