A mother-daughter conversation on food and cooking (mostly)

After the Open House

We attended a very nice open house party in the neighborhood last night from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. There was lots of wine, a spinach quiche, crostini with tomatoes and cheese, and little quesadillas.

Returning home, we were in a supper quandary--we needed a little more food and drink, but we couldn't exactly start from scratch. We settled on a having a scotch and soda, followed by a light meal of brie, crackers, brussels sprouts with mustard and lemon, eggplant caponata (which I had made for food gifts earlier that day), and some blackberries. It was just right.

I like to make food gifts this time of year. For the end of 2008 I made lemon curd, caponata, chocolate chip cookies, and tomatillo salsa.

Those lemon curd jars are beautiful.

I made homemade Tabasco sauce but can't find the right kind of bottles for it. Now I don't know what to do with it.
