Saturday night, several of my friends braved the snowy streets for some Merriment on Mendenhall (my friend Addison came up with that little term). To prepare for the night, I cooked for about three days making homemade shortbread cookies, chocolate truffles, fila, sesame noodles, artichoke dip, pimento cheese and ham biscuits (I won’t lie, I didn’t make the biscuits). All the work paid off and everyone left with plenty of calories to last on the icy drive/walk home.
I was sad not to have my Dad around to capture all the moments on film. After one glass of grapefruit punch I forgot I even owned a camera much less wrote a blog…so I have very few photos to share. Over the next couple weeks, I’ll share the recipes from the party.
