My first culinary holiday was a success. There was not any more pressure seeing that I started this little blog, but there were some hungry eaters. My father woke up at 4am just to make it in time for the big meal (and the Dallas kickoff).
Being the strategist I am, I decided to go simple on the things that mattered, and then experiment on the things that worse case I could trash and run to the store day of. Below is the account of one of my experiments. Simply Scratch posted this a while ago and I thought I could smell them through my computer screen. But real yeast?! Could I do it? Would it rise?
The answer was YES as soon as I saw my little love call out to me at Traders. I had taken Chris with me to do the holiday shopping, more for the moral support I suppose. He returned to the cart only to find me clinging to my precious little Rosemary bush in the shape of a Christmas tree!!! Divine!
