All food for this week's installment of 'Bites of My Life.' This is pretty much how this time of year goes. Lot's of cooking, baking, eating and drinking. The highlight of the week was when I got to switch out cooking as a hobby to cooking for work! The new restaurant my company is opening had a catering and needed an extra hand. I happily put on my apron to take a break from behind the computer.
Last week also consisted of a couple Christmas parties, Christmas shopping and Christmas baking. More of the same on tap for this week.
-Can't get enough of this greek salad concoction using Trader Joe's frozen falafel.
-White Chocolate Dipped Oatmeal Ginger Cookies, don't miss last week's recipe.
-This is what I call perfection.
-Festive avocado toast for a Christmas catering.
-A festive twist on a French 75 was the cocktail of the evening.
-Got to step in as sous chef to help with a party my company was catering. On the menu was avocado toast, deviled eggs, mediterranean dips, and all the cheese, smoked salmon and charcuterie your heart can handle. It was way too fun.
-Sweet potato stuffed with roasted brussels, pomegranate perils and a dollop of hummus.
-A london fog latte with homemade lavender marshmallow to keep me warm while shopping the holiday pop-ups.
-Pastrami with a side of joe at Kitchen No. 324.
