I am writing this late Tuesday night; I have a fun weekend lined up and I'm burning the candle at both ends to be sure I can enjoy it.
My friend Debbie's daughter is getting married here in New Orleans this weekend. Erica and fiancée are flying in from San Francisco; Debbie and the rest of her clan are flying in from Seattle, all on Thursday. I will pick up Emily, the Canadian contingent, at the airport Wednesday afternoon; I can't wait to see everyone.
Emily will either escape on a streetcar tour of New Orleans on Thursday, or find herself knee-deep in a photo shoot for our Jan/Feb issue here. That's the way it rolls here -- any warm-blooded bystander is likely to have a plate shoved into their hand and be instructed as to just how they should hold it for a shot.
I'm abbreviated this week; lots to do. I trust you're all well. I have a question for you: In my family, my mom and my granny made what they called "biscuit flitters". Biscuit dough alttered so that it could be flattened out and cooked on a griddle; still light and fluffy, but flat and ready for gravy. No hot oven. Thoughts? Email biscuit flitters.
We've been saying Merry Christmas since early August; we're shooting January/February 2015 this week, so Happy New Year!
Enjoy this week's recipes, share them with family and friends, and, as always, let me know what's on your mind.
