Girls, Grub, Gossip, & Booze
One of my friends E is getting married next weekend so to send her off the girls put together a little fem gathering. For this quaint event I made sun-dried tomato polenta w/marinara and thyme breadcrumbs. This time I used a metal mold to cut out pretty little oval shapes rather than cutting em up into squares. Much more refined for my ladies, isn't it? And something a little bit sweet... brownie cupcakes with nutella icing. I completely fucked up the icing by trying to take shortcuts instead of following a recipe. Then I remembered my jar of nutella! I sprinkled some marigold color sugar crystals on top for festivity. Who woulda ever thunk my non-baking ass would ever get a jar of sugar crystals?
So the girls filled up on cute polenta bites, brownies, wine and tequila while we jibber jabbered throughout the night. And hopefully sent off E with happy thoughts and happy tummy!
